I too need good exposures.
Go to a public pool, listen to a podcast about homosexuality, watch a YouTube video of someone’s experience “coming out”, etc
Watch Glee, The Prom, Atypical, etc--theyre all on netflix! If youre a woman with HOCD, orange is the new black would be a pretty intense exposure. Maybe even go to a gay-specific town (if you have HOCD and not the SO-OCD where you are afraid of being straight). Jon listed some very good ones as well :).
I am sorry what is orange is the new black?
@lolocd A show that openly displays lesbian relationships (romantic & sexual) in prison. Do NOT watch it unless you are ready for some intense exposures, otherwise it could cause you to take steps back in your progress
@alexisrae1999 I am scared 🥺
@lolocd I wouldn't recommend watching it then, I'm sorry if I triggered ya! :( maybe start with The Prom, its actually super funny
@alexisrae1999 Okay so I looked up for this show orange is the new black on YouTube. The trailer wasn't as triggering as the video of real life partners of the cast. I could only watch half the video. I am not too anxious but I just couldn't watch. :(
@lolocd I'd probably start with trying to get through the trailer first before actually watching anything. I've watched the show to its entirety and oof 🤣 it is extremely triggering. I might watch it again as another exposure
write out a worst case scenario and read it over and over again. it’s scary and very hard but it’s helping!
