Sexual Thoughts

7 posts in this topic

I realized a few days ago that despite all the things people say, you really dont need to have sex or masturbate. 

I also noticed that all the sexual thoughts I have are echoes created by porn usage, watching a lot of porn means more thoughts of naked women flowing in my mind. Its futile to watch porn, I really see no point in it. Every time I watch porn I'm really feeding the urge to watch porn again even more, but the ultimate satisfaction is not there. 

It's pretty dumb to do it looking at it now. But now, on my journey many sexual thoughts come and I desire it mentally a lot. 

I notice that about 70% of thoughts that arise involve sex! 

Does anyone have more stuff to add on to this? Or any advice on getting past sexual desires? 

For example, if I see a woman in the present moment I have no problem getting horny having sex etc. But sitting down on my couch I get aroused by imagination in my mind, that's so silly isnt it?! 

I'm sorry in advance I have issues making things coherent which may be noticable in this post, hope you get the general idea.

Sexual desire is normal. We are sexual beings. Your body has been born as a result of sexual interaction.

You are right. All you need is love.

Your post is coherent.

@Vibroverse yes I can feel that energy in my genital area. It feels like hunger almost but it's in my balls 🤔 , it's this sensation which causes the mind to create sexual thoughts, in order to justify the sensation with a good story.

I'm the same way and I don't even watch porn. It could be different for you but I think the root cause for why my mind is clouded by sexual thoughts is my low self-esteem and my desire for constant attention/affection.

I have noticed that it's a lot harder to be aroused when I move my energy up to the crown chakra, probably because it's the furthest from the sacral chakra. I tried watching porn and fapping, but I could barely have an erection. To me, that proves that the raw sexual energy has nothing to do with the thoughts, and that they're two different things entirely, but we're conditioned to associate them with each other (at least me).

I am still learning to move my energy throughout the body, and I still suck at it, but I can see a lot of potential in learning so. If I can reach a state of 100% flow, I will be able to consciously fully control my energy, and therefore my desires. Then again, that's way too down the road. I still have lots of patterns/conditioning to let go of.

@dflores321 I will tell you what I have gathered from various sources and resonate with me and also my own thoughts.

Swami Sivananda said something along the lines that God created the sexual impulse very strong, so the creation is kept going on. This sounds very reasonable. Also it is something which is pretty much obvious if you observe society and culture.

Of course porn and masturbation are not necessary. Sadhguru said (I am paraphrasing) that sex on a bodily level is natural, but when sex enters your mind, it becomes a perversion.

If you watch porn a lot or masturbate to various fantasies a lot, there is no doubt your mind is probably generating sexual thoughts regularly and thus reinforceing mentioned activities. Even if you don't, the urge for sexual satisfaction is inevitable. What you are able to do as a consious being is to not react compulsively to the sexual urges and transmute the energy into higher activites. This is tightly connected to sexual continence/semen retention.

The choice is yours...
