Have you ever noticed—I aim this question at the afflicted amongst you—that watching porn raises your energy levels? Have you noticed that you could surf for porn all night, pinging from image to image, video to video, genre to genre, producer to producer, porn star to porn star, sex act to sex act?

In this hypothetical porn binge, what happens to your energy level? It climbs. If you don’t believe me, pay attention to your energy the next time you porn binge.

Watching porn floods you with energy. Your mind speeds up and is highly alert, despite the huge volumes of blood pumped into your nether regions to fuel an erection. Time vanishes—another sign of immersion in a high-energy, high satisfaction state.

Pumped and spinning

If you stop bingeing, you’re awake for hours with your body pumped and mind spinning. Subliminal porn images flash through your mind as you lie in bed, wanting to sleep but knowing it won’t come.

Masturbating to climax is the only way to lower your energy—and that comes with a crashing thump of guilt and shame.

This happens in every single porn binge for every single porn addict.

Why has no one noticed this phenomenon before? What’s going on? Where does this surge in energy come from?

Tits and bums

From tits and bums. Asses, pussies, dicks—call them what you will… people posing or playing or fucking or just doing weird sexual stuff.

There’s a sexual high, a ‘hit’ coming off those images. Surely that’s the source of the raised energy?

Yes—and no.

There is a high; a frisson, a surge of sexual electricity that’s experienced during porn binges. But it’s not coming from the images. I know this sounds counter-intuitive, but bare (excuse the pun) with me.

The clue to this energy source lies in the fact that at the end of a binge the addict crashes into a heavy, leaden place of guilt and shame where time seems to crawl. Yet virtually no one notices or comments on this wild swing in energy levels.

Guilt and shame

Guilt and shame are always pointers to that which is denied within us.

On this site I’ve written extensively about how the whole of humanity is fundamentally ashamed of its sexuality, which as a consequence has been repressed for several thousand years. Porn addiction is a longing for sexual wellbeing seeking to break through the emotional concrete of repression.

The guilt and shame experienced during or after a porn binge is the collision between our longing for sexual wellbeing and our patriarchal anti-sexual beliefs that have taught us that ‘sex is bad’.

Because of this shame, we don’t know who we truly are as sexual beings. Are we monogamous or not? Are we hetero-, homo- or bi-sexual? Do we like to explore different sex positions or other ways of giving and receiving pleasure?

We don’t know.

Inaccessible

This is because society has shamed everything except married, monogamous sex in the missionary position. One ring, one partner, one position—that’s your lot.

Whether there’s anything more to you as a sexual being is unknown because it’s repressed by your shame. This illustrates a principle:

That which is in shame is inaccessible.

It’s not just your true sexual self that’s inaccessible, buried in your unconscious under a layer of invisible shame. It’s the sexual energy that’s associated with it, too. That energy is unavailable to you because you’re ashamed of it.

Sexual energy is the energy that creates and animates life. We’re conceived and born through sex. Sexual energy is nothing other than the universal life force.

No wonder watching porn feels great, if it connects you to this energy.

Of course a porn binge energises you. It’s the only time you’re truly accessing all of your life force. The trick is to access that energy without needing the porn. If that interests you, get in touch.
