Behind the cut are two questions. The first deals with sexual behaviour, and the second about how you feel being asked a poll question about sexual behaviour.

Poll #1537818 Self-abuse?

When you masturbate, do you typically use pornography for arousal, or do you use your imagination?

Mostly pornography
Mostly my imagination
A little of both
This doesn't apply to me because I never masturbate
I choose not to answer this question.
Something else (what?)

Did the previous question offend you or make you uncomfortable?

No, neither
I was offended by the question, but it did not make me uncomfortable
I was not offended by the question, but it did make me feel uncomfortable
I was both offended and made uncomfortable by the question
Something else (what?)

I'm kind of a special case - I don't have an imagination (ask me if you're curious, I'll explain) - so I have to base it on experiences I've already had.

I'm curious!

Sure thing!

Basically, if I haven't seen something in person, I can't picture it in 'my mind's eye.' So if someone tells me to imagine a three-legged dog skateboarding eating a pickle, I can't. I'll see separate things - a three-legged dog, a skateboard, and a pickle - but my brain can't actually combine these into a new image.

The only time I've ever been able to "imagine" is when I am very, very overtired - but I can't will it on command. :(

Thank you for sharing!

How interesting! Does this condition have a name? When did you figure out you couldn't imagine things?

I'm not entirely sure if it has a name. I know I've only recently been able to express how my brain works to people - most people don't believe me, think I'm making it up, or try some way to get me to imagine (it never works). I'd love to do more research into it, because I consider it a disability.

That is absolutely fascinating. And it must be really frustrating.
