Anyway, a co-worker decided to take me to a strip club for my 21st, and I do believe I remember enjoying it, and I even went back a couple of days later, and all that I do believe I remember getting aroused and at one point feeling edged. I don't think a gay person would have those experiences? Another funny thing though is I was convinced for almost the rest of that year I got hiv from there good ol anxiety

I know this sounds kind of stupid, but my brain just won't stop and I cant make the decision about this event myself and would appreciate someone else's outside perspective

Try not to overthink it, if you enjoyed it, you enjoyed it. And it doesn't have to mean a thing, if you didn't.

Snaga, I could use your opinion (I know this is reassurance) but do you think I am or sound gay?

Not particularly. You know deep down what turns you on, and what doesn't. If you can separate yourself from your anxiety, anyway. If I ever doubt that I like girls, I know what to look at to test that. And I get reminded that I like them very much.

Thanks a ton for the reply. I'm not so sure how I feel deep down anymore it just gets lost in all the mess and I don't know if my past of chasing and dreaming about girls even has any bearing anymore

I keep doing this and it always backfires on me man, but I was going at it again with porn and well I accidentally messed up one of my testicles and started to go soft from the pain I'm pretty sure, but I said "###$ it" and decided to search up femboy $#%^ to test with and while starting again I felt a weird rush and tingling feeling almost instantly in my genitalia and I immediately switched off to compare and it just went away and felt like I couldn't achieve orgasm anymore. I've been sitting here panicking like crazy and shaking why does it feel like I would have orgasmed very quickly had I continued aghhhh this is so annoying

Is it because I'm subconsciously focusing really hard on the area due to fear of implication? Why doesn't it help in my benefit when I anxiously try the same thing with just regular straight stuff mannnnnn

Don't you suppose that if you look for a particular outcome hard enough, it's sort of self-fulfilling?

I suppose so and I apologize for constantly dumping all this and being probably very repetitive. It is also funny to me that I can see a bunch of people complain about the loss of attraction to girls and that it is a common symptom, but for some reason, my brain is convinced that it isn't normal and that I HAVE to be aroused the second I see a female or that I HAVE to be able to finish in under a minute or two. And whenever I check with the gay porn I just don't seem to know why it does what it does other than I probably focus heavily on it for arousal because I don't think I really am truly attracted to it or place myself in the piece in any way. I mean in the past when scrolling through images the occasional gay image would show up and it would kinda kill the vibe or I would just move on and never really give it two thoughts because I'm pretty sure I never liked that stuff back then. Sorry for another just massive text dump, I just feel the need to vent and talk with someone who can understand
