07 Examining Porn Addiction to Better Understand Ourselves | Dimitri Douchin
Everyone wants to be seen and everyone wants to be understood. What seems like a basic need can be extremely hard to come by.
My guest this week is Dimitri Douchin. He’s a Porn Addiction therapist, an actor, and a stand-up comedian. He is currently building a community to help people overcome porn addiction.
In this episode, we talk about the dangers of porn addiction, perception of pornography, shame and the inclination towards addiction, cultural repression, and integrating the shadow.
We conclude the episode with a guided exploration of a fantasy.

“I decided to jump off the cliff and live my own life”
“Just to embrace these feelings just to be whole again, and from this place of unity and alignment, you can project yourself into a life that has meaning and purpose for you.”
“Pornography is just sexualized traumas that are being replied or reversed.”
"They say life is such a good teacher, that if you don't hear the lesson the first time, it will teach it to you again."
