Hey I’m recovering from this and I’m still dealing with groinal responses but they bother me so much less now. My therapist emphasized that groinal responses literally mean NOTHING. People without ocd get weird groinal responses too, but if you have ocd you tend to assign meaning to them. Learning this helped me a lot. Now when I get a groinal response I just say “this is meaningless and part of my ocd. It doesn’t equal a sexual orientation” hope this helps you too!
I know but back then I would never get a groinal response from women, and ever since I got OCD, now I do and I hate it
@Jonathan616 That’s very common for ocd to cause groinal responses. Doesn’t mean they have any meaning. I know it’s so difficult though.
