I'm a lesbian who's had some difficulties with my sexuality bc of hardcore m/f porn I watched as a teenager. After not using porn for almost a month, I fell back into using it again. I feel so awful and disgusting about myself... I feel gross. Do you have any advice?
Forgive yourself. Porn is addictive, there’s science to back that up, and your relapse is not some kind of moral failing and you’re not a terrible person. We all make mistakes and that’s okay, just accept that it happened and do your best to move on. If you can, try to identify what was happening and how you were feeling when you decided to watch porn. Were you stressed? Lonely? Depressed? These are all important questions to ask yourself. And remember, struggling with addiction to porn that involves males doesn’t make you less of a lesbian.
