Looking at semi nude pictures of woman in my life and masturbating

Is there anyone else that fantasizes about other women in your lives and masturbate? Be it beach pics of your colleagues or friends and using that to finish instead of watching porn? Is that considered porn addiction or there’s an entirely different kind of addiction?

I wouldn’t call it an addiction until it feels like ritualized compulsive comfort seeking. Put another way, ask yourself am I doing this to avoid feeling something in my life or avoid a difficult experience, such as intimacy with my partner, etc?
The urge to fantasize is actually quite healthy, and normally has little to do with the other people and more to do with feeling a sense of newness and erotic about yourself.
So my suggestion is just stay curious. See how you feel before and after. If there’s a shame cycle attached to it, it’s probably worth examining that as opposed to the specific behavior. Because it’s completely normal to find other women attractive while you’re in a relationship. You got this, brother, thanks for being vulnerable and sharing. :muscle:
