>>
I self insert in vidya because I can control the character's actions for the most part and actually make it like myself. I can't do it for anime cause you cant control the same way. I understand why people do it though.
>>
No. The only time I self-insert is when I'm reading a doujin, where I'll sometimes pretend I'm the girl getting pleasured by the fat, old businessman.
>>
>>151893955
Not consciously. I do daydream a lot about particular manga/anime and pretend I'm a character in the world, though.
>>
>>151894167
I never understood, is self-inserting supposed to be a conscious effort?
>>
>>151893955
Only when watching porn, and even then not always.
>>
>>151894179
I don't even know what it means besides autists pretending they are the MC while watching harem anime.
>>
>>151894179
Besides penetrating ones self, the only way one could self-insert is if they're the author/creator.

>tfw you watch anime in an unapproved manner
>tfw you must never tell anybody your secret
>tfw nobody cares

No, that's mostly a doujin thing for me.
>>
>>151893955
I did it a lot but stopped after a while because it distracted me from what was actually happening. I gotta say though, it made Sword Art Online much more enjoyable by brightening the shitfest up with a little headcanon
>>
No. It's one thing to want to wish to be like a character or want to be in their place. It's another thing to project on the character. It's terrible because it leads to faggots who can't divorce themselves from the characters.
>>
>>151893955
always unconsiously, it's hard to not to

>tfw you never insert as the protag
>>
Not really.
>>
>>151893955
You should know which anime are meant to self-insert and which are not. And I don't usually watch haremshit.
>>
>>151894157
this but traps
>>
>>151893955
When the anime lends itself to self-inserting easily (i.e. shonen, harmemshit), sure.
>>
>>151893955
When I was a kid I'd imagine some idealized Gary Stu of myself and insert him into the show somewhere.
>>
I self insert as the cute girls.

I self-insert into a 13.5 tog duvet
>>
>>151895376
Why are you watching that unfun shit in the first place?
>>
>>151893955
No. I imagine myself as a non-beta male cucking the beta mc. Why would you want to be a beta?
>>
>>151893955
I only self-insert as the girl when reading doujins

>>151896591
Sleep snug smug
