ADHD and online pornography....?

One of the most common characteristics related to ADHD is the need to view online porn - or so I've read. We all know that it is degrading but in order to satisfy our need for stimulation, we just can't help but click the button on the mouse and in a split second have access to hundreds of porn sites. I've hadj share of problems when it comes to porn. How many of you had problems with it?

Re: ADHD and online pornography....?

I did (not as much now), almost to the extend that I preferred it over the real thing.

Also, I watch transsexual porn for extra kicks.. Even though I am strictly heterosexual in real life.

Re: ADHD and online pornography....?

i always just thought it was cause its cheaper.... google images? haha im pretty sure its just cause people that arent wont admit it. but seeking entertainment seems to be a common trait of curiosity and boredom (bad wording but you get what i mean)

Re: ADHD and online pornography....?

I have this problem and try to draw it out as much as possible, if ya catch my drift. It's been worse with the Wellbutrin. My libido is fundamentally somewhat below-average, I think, for my age, so the Wellbutrin has probably kicked it up a notch into normal territory (even slightly higher than normal...). Not a bad side effect, if I do say so myself.

Seconded.

I actually find no enjoyment in online porn, maybe when I was in my early 20's and the net was all new to me. Nowadays I get more excited looking through people's photography of buildings or people walking the streets.

Even on the off chance I do go and look at it, I get bored quickly and don't find any arousal at all.

I don't recall it every affecting my school work or social life. However, I think mentally and physically is messing with me. That is to say clearly mentally distinguish what is fantasy and what is not. I say this because when i see or think of girls besides my lady I impulsively think of sex, fantasies, and want to porn. Physically I think it has gotten me into a habit of dine and dash. That is fill'er up and be on my way. Follow? As in reduced physical foreplay, so I can meet her needs then mine, then nap cuz I am so impatient.

I know if I get bored enough and experience the slightest interest i head to the web!

Re: ADHD and online pornography....?

My love for online porn has nothing to do with my ADHD.

Same here
about ten years back, sure... but nowadays it's all exactly the same stuff every time.
Maybe i've seen too much
