D-Day revisited

20042BE5-8233-4EC0-A039-80B23BE88DF8

I’ve been thinking back in time to my own D-Day, with my ex.   It was April  2010, close to my birthday.   After all my suspicions about him having an affair, I finally got my answer that night while he slept.  I was going through his computer, it was a simple photograph I had found, but what it represented would blow the lid off his life of duplicity and expose his secret life of sex addiction which began as an adolescent and had spanned decades.

Although I had no concrete proof to that point that he was having an affair, there were signs:

1. Porn – shit tons of it 

He always had loved porn, and encouraged, wait no, forced me to watch it with him. Told me that it would “spice up our sex life” and that if I didn’t said I was being a “wet rag” and “puritanical.”  If I would not watch it he would send me home.   We were only living with each other part-time then, between states, so to be sent home by your Dominant in the world of D/s was crushing.  To me, when he introduced porn, I was already in love with him.  When you are madly in love with a person, you don’t always stand on lofty principle.

To the people who are reading this that  want to say, “you should have just walked out the door”, don’t go there. I will tell you this:  when you are molested and raped as a child, it teaches you several things: that you have no boundaries,  no self-respect, no self-esteem, and no “No.”. Only a healthy person would walk out the door; and that is the important thing to note.

So against my straight-laced self’s judgment,  I began the process of my own journey delving into porn.   I discovered there were different kinds of it.  Soft porn which is the sort of porn that involves most heterosexual couples banging each other missionary style.  Then there is fetish porn.  It encompasses all kinds of things.   Pregnant porn, foot worship, Shibari, needle play, water sports.   He watched lots of BDSM porn:, girls getting beaten up and by their Masters with bondage, whipping, caning, flogging, St. John’s Cross. Chicks getting raped by hooded dudes, some of the more violent porn.  KKK vintage stuff beating up their girls, weird stuff.  Incestual films.  Beastiality.  As well as snuff films.

I saw things folks, that cannot be unseen.

2.  Lots of accounts on various sex sites

I also discovered on his computer about 20  sex sites to which he had active memberships.  When I inquired as to why this was, his answer was that he just never got around to deleting the accounts. When I asked when he would get rid of them of course it was “when I get to it, don’t henpeck.”

3.  Late night phone calls made in the bathroom while I slept

I would wake up to find him sitting on the toilet with his phone in hand and I’d ask him, “what are you doing?”  He’d snap  back at me, “is it OK if I check my voicemail? I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and I just wanted to check the time of my appointment, is that all right with you?.”   To which  I’d say ,”it’s 3:13 AM that’s all,  most people don’t take their phone in the bathroom at 3:13 in the morning.”  To which he’d quip,” I didn’t want to miss it.

He always had an answer for everything, It amazes me how quick he was on his feet. He never missed a beat in coming up with a response. Which is why at the time I wasn’t too accusatory or suspicious  because I know if I was lying, I’d be stumbling and bumbling over my words.  His heartbeat never went over 60 bpm and he look square in my eyes to tell me whatever it was he had to say. He couldn’t possibly be lying and keep a straight face,  right?

4.  The inconsistencies

There were inconsistencies that I would find.   For example he told me one time that he had a throbbing headache and that he was going to lie down that he had been snow-blowing for several hours and that he just need to take a break.  I got this feeling told me that something was off I just didn’t believe his story.  I took the half hour drive down I snuck around the corner of his house to check the snowblower and it was dead cold.   It should’ve been piping hot after four hours of snowblowing and yet it wasn’t.   There were these types of inconsistencies showing up everywhere a lot of the time.

Back to that photo.  He loved keeping pornographic photos of women on his pc.  He said he just loved the female naked body.   Of course in the beginning of our relationship I had felt insecure and even threatened by these images.  Why did he need to look at them? Why wasn’t I enough? He plainly stated it just was the way he was and it was how he’d always been.  He  reassured me that I was beautiful and not to worry about those photographs they were just a two-dimensional image.

On D-Day, the photo I found had never been there on the pc the week before.   I confronted him.  It was a photo of his hand with his Rolex watch, touching some woman’s snatch.   He explained without emotions, that the photo was from years ago.

So I told him then he should have no problem right clicking on said photo and showing me the time stamp that it was indeed from years ago.   He got angry saying that I was being controlling.  I said, “No you’re caught.”  When I insisted he show me , he told me,” get your things and get out, it’s over.”

I began to cry realizing I was right. I didn’t want to be right.   I began to beg him to tell me what happened. Saying I had been so good to him that I deserved answers.   He grew quiet.   Then he softly answered.”you really want to know?”

Yes, I sniffed.

“I went to a gang bang the first summer we were  together but I didn’t participate.  I only went.   I only touched her with a latex glove on my hand.  I was so nervous that I couldn’t even get an erection.”  Like it was somehow less bad that he went and only watched a woman get porked by 10 men on a table in some dark basement but he only took photos and only touched her with a sterile glove? WTF?!!!

I knew he was lying but I asked, “had you ever gone to a gang bang before?

“Yes,” He said ,”but that was before I knew you.  I felt really guilty this time because I was with you.  I thought because I was with you that I wouldn’t do things like this anymore.  But I swear all I did was touch her with a rubber glove.”

I lost it and flipped out and started screaming at him because I knew I was being lied to. I knew all the 13 Bacterial Vaginosis infections I had gotten with him, that I never had my whole life,  had to come from some place.

He asked me to leave.  To continue to pack my things and leave or he would call the police.  So I did.   I called my AA sponsor who came to help me with the boxes.  I left.

Three weeks later he called me.  He wanted to confess more.   That it was a lot more than a gang bang.  Craigslist hookups, swinging, women from AA, women from CVS, prostitutes from the red light district, hookups he got from fuck sites, old girlfriends he never disconnected with, friends with benefits. He even blew a couple of men. WTF? he the devout homophobe was actually bisexual?      I needed to catch by breath.  Oh, he added there was also one time that he paid money to go and watch a woman get fucked by a horse but that was cancelled at the last minute.  Was there anything he hadn’t fucking done?

I was numb.  I think I went into shock except I knew I needed to get to an OB/GYN.  And fast.  There were bits of flora and maybe fauna there were up in my muff that didn’t belong.  No wonder I was getting infections!!!Holy jumped up fear HIV running through my mind at rapid speed.

And yet,  part of me desperately loved him.  Strange to those who have not been through it.  Your brain goes through distinct phases of grief.  Shock is the first.  I could not wrap my head around that any of this was real.  It could not be.  Because I loved him.  I who graduated with honors from college could not have missed shit?!

Cognitive dissonance.  Trying to merge the intellectual part of what you know with the emotional part of you can’t yet grasp.  They are on a seemingly parallel course.

You are not ready for that degree of pain so your mind protects you in its own way.

I did what I thought to be a right course of action.  Like any good empath, caretaker, and codependent  I researched and then signed him up for the local chapter of Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous or SLAA.  He was already in Alcoholics Anonymous AA (as was I) and had 20 years of sobriety. I figured how hard could it be? just plug in the word sex where booze should be and he’ll be all set.

He got a sponsor.   I jumped into S-Anon, the spouses version of the SLAA program, to understand his addiction and help stop my codependency.  I also went to a few SLAA open speaker meetings to hear some first hand accounts of recovery. Never in my wildest imagination did I expect to hear some grandpa talking about how he molested one of his grandchildren and felt really guilty about it.   Hells bells! I had expected to hear just straightforward stories of spouses  cheating on each other?  not some registered sex offender.  It kind of turned my stomach to be honest and yet I felt bad for the guy as he was driven to act out  compulsively but desperately wanted to stop.   Then there was the woman who is having emotional affairs on line behind her husband back. A man who is crying in tears because he couldn’t stop cheating on his wife and didn’t really know why he was doing it because he really loved his wife.   The last man story I heard was a gay man who was having all sorts of sex with all sorts of people.   Ob his lunch break, after work, before work, rest stops. I’m not really sure if he wanted to stop quite yet or what but he recognized that he had a problem.

So he finally got a sponsor in SLAA after going to a few meetings.    So did I.  He got the books, so did I.   But on the way to one of his SLAA meetings one night, he never made it.  He had lied and said he was at a meeting but he was really in a hotel banging someone from who knows where.

It broke something deep in me that has never repaired, thus far.

He later told me he began masturbating at age 13 in between classes in junior high.  He’d go into the bathroom stall and jerk off.   He’d continue this behavior on into high school.  He began sleeping with a married woman who was in her 20’s when he was only 17.   As he got older his sexual behaviors changed more.  As his alcoholism deepened so did his depravity. He laughed and told me that he asked one woman he dated to put a lightbulb inside her honey pot, still attached to the lamp and then turned it on.  He said it lit up her whole tummy.   I asked him why he did that and he said, “to see what it would look like.” I told him I was pretty sure if it broke she could’ve gotten electrocuted and he laughed saying,” well it didn’t break.”

He would go to bars and bring intoxicated women back to his apartment and fuck them after they passed out.   He told me “they got what they deserved.” Then he would steal their panties and they would wake up the next morning wondering where their panties went and he would say to them , “I have no idea I don’t think you had any on.”   Then he would laugh to me and say, “stupid cunts.”   He said by the time he got married he had a huge stash of panties that he kept hidden behind his wife’s dresser.   To this day I believe it was a form of trophies that he was acquiring to relive each of those women and each of those nights.

He was of course not only a sex addict but also a sexual sadist.

I spent a solid year in S-ANON meetings working on no contact with him, learning from the experience , strength,  and hope from others, so that I wouldn’t get sucked back in, should he ever come to hustle me back when he found himself with a hard dick and a thin pool of options.   I chaired meetings, made outreach calls, and shared my story.   I never thought I would hear from him again.  They all told me that I would and that if I didn’t work on myself I’d go right back.  Sex and love are potent ties that can bind.

He came knocking unexpectedly on Valentines Day one year and a half later.   I opened my door and found him standing there with a box of chocolates in hand.   I let him in.   He tried to make a few moves on me but because of all the hard work I did I showed him to the door. His jaw dropped.  I was not the same woman he had left a year and a half before.

Valentine’s Day for those of you who don’t know are days that sex addicts come knocking on their exes doors; as well as other holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, etc  because they can’t find anyone to screw.  Not.. because they miss anyone  as I was later to find out in the meetings attended.   Those holidays are days that sex addicts can’t find anyone to screw because all of their potential  partners are home with their spouses and cannot  “play.”

It is been eight years since my D-Day.  He continues to contact me sporadically.  I will save that for another post.   His last words when we broke up were, “even if you’re with someone else, I will always own you.”

Of interest, Alcoholism has a success rate of only 8-12% with AA being the most successful program to treat the disease.  It goes without saying that the other some odd 90% spend their time is in and out of rehabs, actively drinking, incarcerated, or die to the Disease or disease related complications

It has been said that sex addiction is more difficult to treat because involves a biological process as a part of the addiction.   95% of  sex addicts will relapse.  Relapse is a part of recovery as with any addiction.  The statistics for long-term recovery are difficult to find but are said to be lower than 8-12% as with alcohol and drug addicts.


Of Mice and Monsters VIII

The relationship had degraded so much and yet I did not know to extricate from it. Fear was a large factor keeping me in it, but also as hard as it is to understand for those who have never been involved with a pathological, I still had a faint hope that he would somehow return to the man I had initially met. The nice, sweet, charming, caring person who was attentive to me and hung on my every word. However, that man whom I fell in love with had fallen away. He was replaced with an empty, selfish, highly sadistic man who ignored my boundaries, was prone to give me silent treatments on a whim for reasons I was told to “figure out.” Every once in awhile that old nice version of him would return leading me to believe it was me that was the problem.  This “intermittent reinforcement” I would later find out, was done deliberately to keep me hooked in the relationship.  At times he even said to me that if I could just stop the (insert bad perceived behavior by him) or begin (insert a desired behavior which he had yet to see from me) than perhaps things could be the way they once were between us. Deep down though, I had a gut feeling he never had any intention of making good with the follow through.

Giving false hope is the devil’s work.

At some point I believe I had chalked up 12 bacterial vaginosis infections in the course of 5 years with him. Prior to knowing him I had never even had one my entire life. My gynecologist said they were sexually indicated but they could be acquired by other means such as swimming in ponds, douching, using tampons and not changing them often enough. Yet none of those applied to me. She made it clear it was not something one could get from a toilet seat. How did I get these infections? I couldn’t help thinking he must be having an affair.  My heart was sad thinking why wasn’t I ever good enough?

There were the middle of the night wake-ups where I’d find him gone out of bed. Only to find him using his phone in the bathroom sitting on the toilet seat checking his voicemail because he couldn’t sleep or so he said.  When questioned about it he would always deflect the question and blame me with an accusatory tone,” how dare you try and control what I do when I am having trouble sleeping!!!” Or that he was booking a doctors appointment. WTF? Are you kidding me.  You are booking a well visit with your primary care physician at 3:30 am?

There were lies.

That he was snow blowing for hours during the winter and couldn’t answer the phone , yet when I arrived I touched the snowblower and the entire machine was totally cold.  He never knew I did this.

Lies about going to his regular AA meeting but when I’d ask what the topic was, who chaired the meeting, or who the speaker was, he said he couldn’t remember. Anyone who is in recovery knows this is total BS unless you are drunk going to the meeting.   He was 26 years sober.

There were so many lies, so many inconsistencies, so many scary things that I had been fervently praying. Begging God to please remove him from my life. To please keep me safe and release me from this man. Day and night I prayed. Because for reasons unknown to me at the time, I could not seem to muster leaving him of my own free will.  Each time that I tried my heart would be overcome with a  sorrow so deep and painful, that I would do anything to avoid that level and degree of pain; including not leaving him.

Then my prayers were answered.

I was on his computer and had noticed a photo that hadn’t been there the week prior.  It was a photo of a naked woman lying on a table, with him wearing a green shirt on with his hand outstretched touching her genitals.

I asked him about it.  He claimed it was from years ago.   I knew it was a lie.   So I said, “All photos have time-stamps, right click on the image and show me it was years ago.”

He replied, “You don’t control me I’m not going to do that.”

I said,” this has nothing to do with control, if you can prove that this was done years ago just go ahead and right click on it and prove me that I’m wrong.”

He said, “get out.”

“Excuse me?”

Get your all your things together and get out , we are done, it’s over Lexi.

I told him, “I’ll be happy to get out if you want to be done , but just the same I want you to show me that the photo was from years ago, prove that I am wrong.”

“Just get out.”

My lip began to quiver and tears began to fall down my face as I begged him,”Please tell me the truth about that photo, I’ve been good this you for 5 years,  I loved you and I don’t deserve lies, please just tell me the truth.”!”

You want the truth?” He said.

Yes,” I whimpered.

“That photo was from when I went to a gang-bang the first year I was with you…….I am a sex addict.  I have gone on Craigslist hookups, done a fair share of swinging,  paid for prostitutes, and have a steady pool of friends with benefits that I have sex with, some that go back for many years,”  he said cooly.

I was shocked, replulsed, and terrified all at the same time.   They say when you die your life flashes before you at rapid speed.   Well it was like that.  I kept thinking of all the sexual partners he had been with.  How many had there been?  Had I been infected with HIV and didn’t even know it?  My heart skipped a beat and my blood ran cold.

Before I could say anything he said,” you need to leave now Lexi, are you happy you got your truth?”

I carried my things to my car.   The cross on his kitchen wall for reasons unknown, slid upside down on the wall and inverted.  It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

As I walked out the door I felt mostly  numb as the tears had already dried on my face.  My thoughts still raced a mile a minute, though mostly consumed with one persistent thought, ‘how could I have been deceived by a man without a conscience.’
