Porn and Masturbation Triggers

This post assumes you have some knowledge about EFT.  If you don’t, I encourage you to review the videos and others tabs at the top of the blog so the post will make more sense.

A man I have been working with that had a masturbation problem identified some locations that were triggers for him. We had addressed his shower and his bed before. He went out of town for a week, and had no problem with masturbation, it was as though he had forgotten about the problem. However, once he got home, the next morning he had a problem, and then again later that night in bed. Given the stark difference between being at home and away from home, this told us there were some triggers to being home that needed to be addressed.

I had him make the statement, “My house is where I am supposed to masturbate.” He said that on a gut level in landed a little bit true, even though he didn’t want it to. So, just being in his house triggered the program to masturbate. Through a series of questions we also identified that being in his bed “in the dark” was a trigger. We had addressed his bed before, but not the aspect of being “in the dark.” Of course it had always been in the dark when he masturbated in bed, so the lighting condition was part of the trigger.

In my book, “Freedom from the Plague” I outline how anything can be a trigger, depending on what is associated with it. The above case history illustrates that any place, or even the lighting condition within a location can be a trigger. Triggers could include smells, sounds, different times of the day, a person, an action (unzipping pants, etc), a memory, a body part, an article of clothing, anything! One of things that makes getting over porn and masturbation addictions tricky, is that most conventional approaches don’t have a way to rewire the brain when it comes to these triggers. With EFT, we look for them, and once we find them, we can clear them relatively easily. Going through the standard EFT process focusing on these triggers will usually clear them. If not, then we need to be more specific – like “being in bed… in the dark.” Once we have it identified, we can clear it!
