Yeah everyone ocd or not can experience groinals. Ocd just makes you obsess about it
Really? I have always experienced groinals looking at same sex. Before I had servere sexual orientation ocd. I had pocd years back and got it with that theme. But now I'm scared as to why I got it with sexual material with same sex! Also I get it watching a crime drama programme. Like with madeleine mcann and when I was reading James bulger book
Yeah it usually happens because of the result of an intrusive thought or exposure to sexual material of any kind (ex: the description of a sexual crime) your brain just sees “sex” and sends it arrosual signals. It doesn’t mean you actually desire those things or feel a genuine attraction
But I would get it even if it was an unattractive woman or some grotesque woman. But I didn't have hocd then. And I get it more at women and if I wanted to get aroused by men I don't as quick
Is it different arousal?
Yes, I have groinal responses to everything. I’m a woman in a straight long term committed relationship and i experience groinal responses with women in media more than I do anything else. I experienced this before ocd, but not as intense as I do now.
Why does it happen do u think
I almost never get those thankfully but the few times I do they suck! I try to remind myself of how I’m feeling in that moment and I’m never feeling happy so I’m like “it’s just ocd”
I never did before ocd
groinal response is for sure normal even if you do not have OCD. i think the key when having groinal responses with OCD is to not answer to them. when they start happening, we often panic because OCD tricks us into thinking "do i like this thing" and we fall down the rabbit hole of compulsions. next time you get groinal responses, just accept that you're getting them. you don't need to figure out why you are. OCD will try to convince you there is a reason.
I wake up every morning with unease waiting for intrusive thoughts to appear. It's a dread I have
