They must also deal with opinionated parents, friends, and others who sometimes hold differing views about sexuality.

Some individuals with HOCD have a predominantly checking-related variant of OCD.

When around same sex individuals, they “check” their own bodies for signs of sexual arousal.

Homosexual OCD (“HOCD”) is a specific subtype of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) that involves recurrent sexual obsessions and intrusive doubts about one’s sexual orientation.

Straight individuals with homosexual OCD experience obsessive fears about the possibility of being gay.

For the sake of simplicity, I’ll be using HOCD-centric language in this post.

However, the same basic elements are directly applicable to all people with obsessive doubts about their sexual orientation.

People with HOCD worry that they might secretly be gay or might become gay, despite not questioning their sexuality in the past.

Prior to the onset of HOCD, they might have had few doubts about their sexual orientation.

Other people with homosexual obsessions have a contamination-related variant of HOCD and worry that contact with gay men, lesbians, bisexual individuals, or effeminate/androgynous people is “contagious” or may somehow “activate” their latent homosexuality.

Still others worry about acting on unwanted sexual impulses.

In order to avoid symptom triggers, it’s not uncommon for people with homosexual OCD to become depressed and drop out of school, quit their jobs, end relationships, or make other life-altering decisions that paradoxically make their symptoms worse.
