I have been struggling with masturbation and straight as well as gay pornography for a great deal of time. This past week I attended an Advent mission at my parish which really opened my eyes regarding the realities of heaven and hell and gave me a whole new motivation to resist those temptations.
Yesterday I went to confession and explained my struggle with sexual impurity to the priest and asked how detailed I should be while confessing these sins. I read a few things online that said I should be as descriptive as possible while others said I should just give what's necessary. Basically what I was getting at while in the confessional was whether I should confess the TYPES of pornography or just that I had indulged in pornography in general. The priest never asked anything about whether it was straight or gay porn so I didn't say anything because it felt improper to simply throw in that there was some gay pornography too.
Afterward I feel guilty because I feel like I didn't make a full confession even though he didn't ask me to specify. I've been reading similar posts on this website and most say that I should just say what the confessor asks for, but I still can't shake the thought that the sin isn't forgiven yet.
I'm really hoping that someone can ease my thoughts on this.
Thank you for taking the time to help and God bless,
