Hello, I’m a 22 year old male and I have has a problem that has plagued me since I was about 9 or 10 years old. I have a condition called sthenolagnia. It’s the attraction to muscle. I’m attracted to muscles in general. Be it male or female. Usually I can control it, however. The main issue is that there is this particular movie I watched when I was that age with this muscular cartoon character, and I have been strongly attracted to it. The problem is every 4 months or so ever since I was 10, I masturbate to it for a few consecutive days, and I hate myself for it. Throughout my early teen years, and my late teen years I have been strongly attracted to girls and not guys at all, which makes this all the more strange. I watched a lot of girls in ***n. But now in my early 20s, Im not that turned on by the same ***n anymore. I’m concerned about why I have lost this attraction/become sensitized while that movie I saw in my childhood still haunts me. I have recurring dreams about the character, and Im afraid to establish relationships with girls for fear of them finding out about this! It’s ruining my life and I want it to stop. Is there any kind of treatment/hypnosis/medication I can take for it? Please, I really want this to stop. Don’t tell me to accept it or embrace it or whatever. I need this to end, because I can’t live with this!

  • I am going through the same problem. A fetish for comic book muscle started at a young age (9 or 10). Have you made any progress? I have had a hard time pursuing relationships. I am 28 and this has to end!
