Would you distinguish that from voyeurism?
I guess that just depends on whether or not the voyeur in question also likes having sex with people and watching others is just an additional kink, or if they exclusively watch others without participating. Also voyeur (to me at least) has a connotation of watching people live, either remotely or IRL, consensually or non-consensually.Would you distinguish that from voyeurism?
Yeah and even masturbation isn’t technically essential, as I understand the term - it’s basically a sort of asexuality where you can still feel arousal, whether you act on it or not, but that arousal doesn’t extend to a desire to sexually engage with others.So really its people that are completely satisfied with masterbating to porn and dont have any desire to try and have actual sex?
Also could have to do with an actual aversion to sex, or a fear/anxiety re: intimacy, which I can relate to as well. But it seems the main point is that the actual desire to have sex is weak to non-existent, anxieties notwithstanding, IE other people may have a desire to have sex but this desire is inhibited by anxiety.So really its people that are completely satisfied with masterbating to porn and dont have any desire to try and have actual sex?
I dont think porn is going to prevent people from feeling incomplete, or erase the desire to feel wanted, but I do think the internet in total could fill that role, particuarly on young people, and porn could work in tandem by solving the physical side and result in select groups of people feeling satisfied with a 'sex life' like thatAnyway, I’m wondering if the prevalence of online porn, and how it conditions adolescent sexuality, correlates with any increase in young people self-identifying this way.
Before I came across this term, I was thinking ‘parasexual’ would be a semantically sound term, along the lines of ‘parasocial’, but then I thought that term might give the impression of being into paraplegics or something haha.
Yeah once you find out, mid-flight, that the paralegal was actually born in Uruguay and was only raised in Paraguay, the whole affair loses its eroticism.The world's most specific kink: getting turned on by going paragliding with paraplegic paralegals from Paraguay.
Yeah this was a prominent feeling for me too, in high school and the first year of college. Even then, I wasn’t interested in the experience of sex itself, but I was super compelled to have sex, just so that I didn’t feel like a failure in that regard.Ive felt bad about not having sex before and it was because I felt like I was barred from a large part of the human experience. Like everyone else was engaged in a conspiracy that I was left out of. Maybe if I was on dissensus at the time Id never have had sex again
Yeah Mother Nature often struggles to find product-market fit with some of these things.someone was saying to me that kids like birds eye waffles better than fruit becasue a fruit is not a reliable expereince. most fruit is disappointing. every once in a while it's amazing but mostly its disappointing. a processed food product is always the same. a reliable sugar-salt-fat hit every time.
