Wired for Intimacy

This is a really interesting video sent to me by a prayer chain friend.  It’s about pornography addiction, but just watch it thinking about crossdressing and you’ll see why crossdressing can become equally as addictive as pornography.  I think most especially of addiction to crossdressing fiction or crossdressing photos.   This video explains not only how pornography connects to our desire for intimacy with other people, but also explains the various interactions of hormones and neurotransmitters going on during pornography watching and masturbation.  It’s very scary how we can bind ourselves to visual images or a sequence of visual images for our pleasure needs, in place of binding ourselves to a person.  Or in our place, many of us have bound ourselves to crossdressing as a way to arousal.

This video also pushes me much farther toward the view that masturbation is harmful in general, even if not connected to pornography.  It binds us to something other than a person that God has brought us together with.  Nocturnal Emissions should be enough to give us release.  I have edited my masturbation post accordingly.

    Yes, I agree….”It’s very scary how we can bind ourselves to visual images or a sequence of visual images for our pleasure needs, in place of binding ourselves to a person. Or in our place, many of us have bound ourselves to crossdressing as a way to arousal.”

    I think that this is what Blanchard was referring to as sexual target-error, or “paraphilia”.
