Even though after the erection is fully erect i start to have sexual thoughts? And before you ask no they are not about my daughter. How long does it usually take before it will stop happening?

Brief Answer:
Varies. Mostly 6 months

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Our sexual impulses get stimulated on the sight or touch of bare skin. The same is happening in your case. As long as the thoughts are not of your daughter, it perfectly fine. Time will XXXXXXX it off. Varies. Mostly 6 months.
The guilt about these thoughts will do you more harm than the occurrence of these thoughts. Its ok to have sexual thoughts. They are part of life and nothing bad or dirty about it.
Hope that helps
