34 y/o male. Have been suffering with POCD groinal reactions, ROCD, scrupulously, etc for many years.Does anyone fear that they are trying to touch or rub against people? Sometimes this thing will happen where something will provoke me to move my body (like turn around or move out of the way of something) and I’ll worry that what’s actually happening is that I’m trying to rub against someone. This happened last year at a party I was at where a woman walked by and I moved away to let her by, but was really worried that I had actually tried to touch her.
I am a happily married man with OCD. I have a strong confession compulsion. My wife and I have a good sex life but I still indulge in watching porn maybe once or occasionally twice a week. I told my wife about this and her reaction was that she did not care. She outright said, “I don’t have a problem with porn.”
Hey there, friend. Everything you’re describing is classic OCD. Classic. Believe me, I’ve been there and nothing you’re saying is new or shocking. Seek out ERP (Exposure Response Therapy) for OCD and it will work wonders for you.
