so that it arises no longer... hahahahahahahahaha
I think it is a tragedy that so many people think that the potential embarassment of a frank discussion is worth repressing discussion of a sexual nature. How very Victorian. Here in California, and I assume Western Nevada, sex is discussed pretty openly. Sometimes it gets inappropriate, but for the most part I think it removes some of the "bad boy" impulse from lust, making it a little (but just a little) easier to overcome lust.
That being said, good luck to you, RMSmith. Cutting porn from the diet is definitely a positive thing. When I cut porn from my diet, it almost seemed to make lust worse for a few weeks, but after a while it helped the visual aspect of lust fade a bit. It's still hard to walk down the street and see a beautiful woman on a warm day with short shorts and her cleavage popping out her shirt without having at least a modicum of lust, but at least I can now quickly turn my focus back to the breath instead of letting my jaw hit the sidewalk.
I believe in talking about things. If you are working with lust, one must discuss lust. Buddha said that if lust was any more powerful he may not have found enlightenment. It's tough and we all need a little help. Hopefully we can all move beyond.
Sotthī hontu nirantaraṃ - May you forever be well.
