Blue film addiction

I'm not sure if this is the right forum or not to discuss this topic but i hope someone can help me.

I'm not sure if i am under this addict category or not. recently i have been watching blue films for almost an hour whenever i have free time. I have been watching this movies on holidays & i may watch more if i am alone.

Currently blue films became something like normal for me & it is not making me aroused. 

Although i tried to avoid this  blue films, but only for a short period. Later i can control my self & i will start watching this movie. In the beginning i may thought just would like to watch for 5 - 10 minutes, but later i will be watching for almost an hour.

I would like to avoid from watching this kind of movies frequently & can someone please help me?

I am sorry I can't help but I have never heard of Blue Films. If it is something you feel you may be addicted to and could be harming you then you should seek counseling. People can get addicted to anything so if it is something that keeps you from living a normal life then by all means get professional help.

Greetings Muthup,

I was not sure if by blue films you meant erotica or porn?  One of the Sex and Sexuality Boards or the Addiction Board may be of more help.  I'm not sure the self-esteem board is exactly what you are looking for. But I am leaving you a few thoughts I had.

Did it occur to you that you just may be bored and not regulating sexual fantasy to only a portion of your life leaves you nothing to look forward to?  Do you have relationships with others not based on one thing? Does your age have anything to do with your addiction?  Sex is normal, watching someone who has read a script, rehearsed, and is acting on film and picking up a paycheck, just goes so far (some scripts are not very good anyway). If you are watching these movies  on TV or elsewhere, and you have control of the system parental block yourself out of them. Have you tried to break it as you would any other habit- perhaps saying no or doing something else?  It will be warm soon, plan a vegetable or flower garden, or try some other hobby.
