Suffering from BDSM, submissive nature. How to get rid of this obsession?

Hi. I am 30 yr old male and my question is about BDSM. I consider myself a submissive. I believe I think too much i about BDSM and spend lots of time looking over bdsm photos over net. I also try to chat a lot about Femdom (try some online roleplays) and I feel anxious if I dont get anyone to chat with. I want to know if this is normal or not and if its not, are there methods to come our of this obsession?

hi..look this is called gender identity disorder if you are categorized at all..and medicine won't cure it..counseling may help in a great way if you want an orientation regarding gender..people may not want so and they are happy..so the ball is in your court..thanks..

Psychiatrist Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Though sexual fantasies are fairly common among males, whenever a particular fantasy or a deviant sexual behaviour becomes predominant and takes precedance over normally accepted sexual behaviour, then it becomes a Sexual Perversion. From your description, it appears that you are having a Masochistic Sexual Perversion. Since this is causing you distress and because there is a possibility that this can affect your future married / sexual life, I think it's better to seek help for it. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further management. There are treatment methods which will involve counselling and psychotherapy, sometimes medication, which will help you overcome this problem.

Wish you all the best.
