Good morning. I apologize for the long backstory. For the past 8 months or so, I have been going on many dates, with a lot of different women, a member of several dating sites. I would go on 1-2 dates a week, often they’d lead to some sort of kissing/making out (However I am not actually sleeping
with these women) and I would be then texting/emailing with a half dozen or so other women I haven’t met yet. It’s mostly text/phone sex, picture trading, etc. and not ACTUALLY having sex with the women. I take safe sex very seriously, and have only had sex in monogamous relationships so that has stopped me from doing anything risky healthwise. My masturbation has always been accompanied by porn, and always more exotic (threesome/group sex/girl on girl) and I’ve been a member of numerous sites. I’ve begun to find it very hard to get interested, and have not really been getting aroused easily. ED is not my concern, as I do wake up with strong erections, and when I do use porn and become aroused my erections are fine. I also feel I drink far too much alcohol. I don’t get drunk easily, but I can consume 10+ beers in a sitting, and usually 2+ times per week. In addition I feel constantly stressed out and/or anxious, and I take Celexa. My questions follow:
1) Is it possible that I have simply started to become de-sensitized and like an addiction, I am needing more to get the same feelings?
2) My plan is to stop using porn, stop dating for a few months, and cut alcohol. I should note I don’t get alcohol cravings, it’s always social. Furthermore I do work out 2 or so times per week, but I was planning on boosting that to 4 days a week minimum. Would this sort of plan possibly help? Boosting testosterone??
