Hi. A bit of explanation. I suffer from a sexual fetish for changing the way I look. So any man I see that has a physical trait that I would desire, I’m turned on by. This makes an even worse problem for me, as it drags me back into homosexual attraction, another issue that’s come my way. I know the psychological origin of the homosexuality, but the fetishes keep pulling me back in. I’m an 18 year old male, and I really need some prayer and advice.
Now, one thing that affects me the worst are shaved heads. A part of me genuinely likes the look, but because of that, my fetish(changing what I look like) comes into play and I’m tempted so badly.
Now, I’ve been wanting to shave my head for some time now, and I know that as soon as I do, I likely won’t be aroused by it anymore. This might help alleviate temptation to sin, and I do actually like the look. But I’m not sure if I’m just using this as an excuse to give in to a sexual fantasy. I don’t think about it in a sexual way, but it has the same effect. What should I do?
(I’ve also been going to Theophostics sessions to help. It’s basically psychoanalysis guided by prayer.)
