Ask Your Question
Has anyone ever gone through therapy to reduce the impact of a fetish? What was your experience?
Unless that fetish affects your life negatively and impairs your daily life, or is really fucked up, you don't need therapy and should even embrace it.
My fetish is very skinny women and I've been embracing it since the 12th grade... Every girl I've been with has been very skinny. Current girlfriend of over 2 years is 40kg and can drive me wild just by being near me. I certainly wouldn't want that fetish gone. It adds a lot more passion into the relationship and she loves the attention too.
If you make a very skinny girl feel comfortable and loved and show her you adore every inch of that skinny, delicate little body of hers, she will be a tigress in bed.
Not a fetish, but my mother forced me to go to therapy to try and get me to stop liking bondage when I was 13.
Did the therapy change your fetish?
No. The first step in therapy is learning to accept that there is a problem in need of addressing. Until then, its a waste of everybody’s time. You have to want to help yourself. I did not and still do not see BDSM as a bad thing. I just stopped posting pics and read up on every possible safety tip to better prepair myself.
That seems sane to me. I once had a counsellor who became obsessed with my work on phone sex lines, which had nothing to do with why I'd gone to see her, telling me it was unhealthy and asking how a feminist could do work like that.
I dumped her after a couple of sessions where she was almost yelling at me about it and refusing to believe I couldn't find other work.
I went through 5 therapists from age 13-17. The last therapist was the most helpful (as she also did my official re-evaluation for my ADHD) but the rest were complete garbage that did more damage to my mental and physical health than help me.
How did your mom even find out that ypu liked bondage? Lol
I was dumb as a box of rocks as a teenager and not only did she see that I was looking at bondage pics (and posting some of my own) on Deviantart, she found the (used) rope and ductape I had stolen from my fathers workshop in the basement...
As a parent, I'd be TERRIFIED if my 13 year old was getting down like that!
I often look back and feel like I was the worst to my mother. That being said, the therapy 14/10 did not work and BDSM is still my biggest kink, I have just channeled it better.
As long as youre not looking at pictures of like bondage/murder... if you were looking at BTK killer shit it would be alarming.
Thats a crazy story you got there hah
I've tried to get over my scat fetish, but I just can't. It's simply impossible, and I've even been to therapy for it. I have a sexual compulsion to eat it, which is taking a toll on my health. However, I simply cannot stop. My therapist is actually considering using a shock collar to de-condition me from eating feces, but I'm a bit nervous about the idea. I cannot begin to count the times that I've picked up parasites and other diseases as a result of eating shit during sex, yet I cannot stop. So, perhaps the shock collar truly is appropriate here, I'm not sure.
I try to only be with others with my fetish. Makes sex so much better!
I never tried. It's never interfered with me eating, sleeping, working, my interactions with people, my health, or hobbies so I don't bother.
If the fetish isn't harming you or anyone else now or potentially, I don't see why you need therapy
It says 8 comments. But I only see mine. Could someone explain how that works?
The comments section is just plain weird sometimes.
Been through therapy for many years and issues, but I don't think I have any fetishes that are weird enough to need mitigation.
Nope, but I don't have a fetish.
Really? Great, wow, thanks for the insight. Helps a lot...
I wouldn't be surprised if most of the people on here think it's unnecessary for you to mitigate a fetish as you say. If it's adversely affecting your life then maybe you ought to get some therapy for it after all.
I thought you had a nun scat fetish
No, that's just you trying to troll me.
Nu-uh. You said you like BBC too
Im male and I wear pantyhose everyday under my cloths and Im OK with it ...
Therapy? No I did other methods though
