Hello and welcome to my channel. This is Dr. Dawn Michael, and today we’re going to be discussing how to get rid of an unwanted sexual fetish.

Now, I have yet to see any videos that really go into this topic. Sometimes it’s grouped together with addiction topics, and the other spectrum is just simply you can’t get rid of it or just accept it. And for some people, none of those options work or they’ve tried them.

So, I’m going to go over the approach that I use with clients and give you a couple of different ways that you can deal with an unwanted sexual fetish. And this can also be about a sexual pattern or if you’re feeling like this is a problem with pornography as well, you can also work the system that I have put out.

It’s not going to be a completely in-depth video; otherwise, I would be here for several hours. But I am going to go over some helpful topics for you and give you some tools on how to really understand if this is something that you want to get rid of. Number one, number two, if you can minimize and manage, which is many people fall into that category, and number three, if you truly do want to get rid of it, and it is completely destroying your life and making it so that you’re not able to maintain relationships. You’re doing something that is hurting yourself or, unfortunately, hurting other people.

So, all of these are topics that I think need to be discussed more in society because as I see it, the more that people are invested in watching pornography and even extreme pornography from a younger age, it certainly does change the way that they view sexuality, and they see things that they normally wouldn’t see in real life, and that’s just part of the problem here.

So, let’s get started with defining a sexual fetish or even an unwanted sexual pattern, and that would be basically fixated on something that arouses you, and that fixation is mostly used for you to get aroused and able to have an orgasm, and it is something that you’ve had for a very long time. Most people will report that they’ve had a sexual fetish, even sometimes starting before puberty, although it’s not really seen as sexual at that point. But once going through puberty, it gets more solidified, and many times people will work it into their sexual pattern so that they will think about it, they will masturbate, they will kind of get this, I don’t want to say euphoric feeling because it really differs for each person, but all fetishes have a particular not origin, but per se, there are similarities regardless of what fetish it is.

That would be that many times people will get like a rush, it could be adrenaline, so their dopamine is being spiked at the time. It feels good or pleasurable in the fact that it may not be pleasurable as far as the feeling. It could be pleasurable for some people in a reduction of anxiety. It’s been known to feel safe or comfortable, and if it’s a habit that’s been around for a long time, it is familiar. And when you have all of these dynamics coming together, it makes for a very strong, a strong I don’t want to say addiction, but a strong habit to break because if it’s your go-to thing for not only sexual pleasure but also to relieve stress, to get comfort from it, you’ve been doing it for a very long time. It’s familiar. That’s a very hard thing to give up because what do you replace it with? And that’s really what we’re talking about is many times people aren’t able to give up the sexual fetishes or certain types of sex addiction, although I don’t like to use the word addiction because it is something that they don’t feel they can replace it with something else. So, it almost like it leaves a hole in their life. They don’t know where to go, how to relieve that stress or get that pleasure. And so, even though they try to stop, they keep coming back in and kind of falling into the same trap.

So, it’s really important to first understand why you know why have you gone to this extreme to some extent to fulfill this desire or this need to have this fetish. And that takes some introspection from you. It takes some time to really understand, well, when did this start? When did I start being attracted to this or when did it start feeling like a comfort to me and kind of go back in time and think about that? And then at what point did it become a habit and become familiar? So now, every time you’re stressed or every time you want to have an orgasm or you want to be involved in some type of sexual activity, you’re reaching for that fetish, that object that turns you on. It can also be a not necessarily an object but something that you do as well, a pattern, something that is leading up to something, you know, in the fetish itself. It’s not just let’s say you have a typical one, a shoe fetish or a stocking fetish or you
