[ELI5] Why does it feel disgusting/crap to watch the porn you have just been watching after you ejaculate.

In:

Human beings are conditioned from birth to think of their bodies as embarrassing and even disgusting. Same with all bodily fluids. Despite the emerging primal desire for physical intimacy as we age, those fundamental feelings of shame rarely go away.

We find things disgusting because disgusting things have lots of bacteria/diseases (like worms, bodily fluids, bad smelling things) which will harm us.

Feeling of disgusting is reduced by many factors when we are aroused. After ejacualtion, our arousal is reduced so we revert back to the normal/default feeling of disgusting.

Pretty much the same reason that the thought of eating any food is sickening after you’ve stuffed yourself with a big meal.

Being hungry and being horny are very similar if you think about it.

It… doesn’t?

There’s a refractory period post-orgasm where you aren’t as intensely sexually interested in whatever it was that got you going in the first place (could last a minute, could last all day, every situation is unique).

But you shouldn’t feel negative about whatever it was you were enjoying just a moment ago. Indifferent? Sure. Depends on how you got in the mood to begin with. If there wasn’t a lot of build up and physicality (like with intercourse) then it’s just instant gratification; you got what you needed, popped off like you wanted, and don’t need it anymore.

But if you feel disgust, shame, or feel bad about yourself, you should talk to someone and try to figure out why. That sounds like a personal issue or some deep-seeded shame/self-hate and that’s another issue entirely. Because after busting a nut the very least you should be feeling is indifferent and don’t care about the rest of the video, and at most you should be happy smiling relaxed and good for a few hours.
