no i get this too. i used to get sexual mental images about my friends and it would make me so ashamed and anxious especially because we're all like 13-14. i don't get these anymore but i do get some mental images about family members and young people and it is exhausting. i feel a little ashamed talking about it
No, I get this too. Detailed images of sexual acts, is that what you mean? They're awful. I became desensitized (feel nothing) after having it for so long so it's so bad. What's even worse is, I could live with it somehow, but my life is ruined because I thought some of them on purpose to 'check for arousal' and I had it many times. I feel like it's the ultimate proof. Even though everyone says it isn't I feel awful because, why would my body respond to that? :(
The body often responds to anything that is suggested as sexual. It’s just nature. What matters is your moral compass, thoughts are just thoughts. Your inner conscience is you.
Groinal responses happen to everyone, people with ocd become more aware of them
It’s not only you.
I get this too and it makes me feel disgusting. I hate it so much. And then I’m more aware of my body’s response so if I get a groinal I feel like it confirms I’m a bad person. I hate it so much
I always had random sexual images of people( adults). I was fine with that but when I had a random sexual Image of a child my mind some how fixated on that weird image and I got really scared. This first happened to me around Christmas time and I did not enjoy my Christmas at all. The thoughts and more images started to come. I also get groinal responses but it is more like a pain rather than me actually being turned on.
Can Tik Tok be triggering for any of you?
