Before I say why the last five months have been so interesting, I will try and catch you up. All my life, I have been attracted to women. I can remember my childhood crushes, the girls I used to date, and the first time I snuck a peek at Playboy. Shannon Tweed, Heather Kozar…ahh such beautiful women! I grew up well, had wonderful girlfriends, all of my sexual fantasies and urges involved women, girls in class got me off, I loved the way they looked and felt, one girl in which I fell in love with for the better part of two years. I was a very happy man. In addition to this, I had a couple addictive/compulsive/obsessive things to my life and what I see now as the most troubling was an internet porn addiction. I looked at it every day since the age of 16. I loved it though and thought nothing was wrong. I gradually moved on to more hardcore stuff. What should I do now? Is there a way to get rid of this addiction, or is this just normal and I should not worry about it?

Since I joined the AlterHéros team, I have greatly enjoyed my time as an “Tell the expert” expert. Not only do I enjoy writing up tid bits of advice to inquiring minds, I feel that I have gained a lot from hearing about the problems and inquiries of individuals from all different walks of life. This has afforded me to think outside the box, outside of my own context and to expand my understanding of people, sexuality and a wide range of other subjects. This monthly challenge has benefited me in many ways and I have always appreciated how easily it fits in to my schedule. Not only that, but the staff have always been friendly and flexible concerning my needs.
