What is porn addiction?

Porn addiction raises many questions. Lets start with the elephant in the room.

What is porn addiction?

Porn addiction is recognized by a compulsive need to watch porn. Not to long ago the access to porn was limited and restricted. magazines and videos was sold over desk to appropriate ages, and there was that step involved of actually bying it from a person. The embarrassment of paying for condoms the first time doesn’t even begin to compare to paying for porn. Porn was available on television as well sure, but restricted to hours of the day when minors was sleeping as well as restricted to certain channels that far from every household was paying for. Developing an addiction to porn at that time took considerably longer and even then the possibility to access and relapse was not comparable to todays situation.

Truth be told, today anyone and everyone could potentially develop an addiction to porn as an escape or a way to deal with high stress, and the destructive pattern would gain a very rapid momentum. Now days porn is accessible to EVERYONE and EVERYWHERE.

In your phone.

In your kids pads.

In your computer at work.

There is literally no restriction as to who got access to porn and when. The introduction of the internet brought many fantastic things, but sadly it broke the few restrictive shackles we had on porn. Consider the fact that it is also free. The alcoholic must pay for all that drinking. The drug addict must find the people with access to the drugs and then pay massive amounts of money to uphold an active addiction. What about the porn addict? Well, it is all there in every device all the time. That play a huge role in why porn addiction progress so rapidly and is an addiction with very high volume and high intensity.

There is also little to no traceability of a persons porn use. That makes it very hard to know anything about a partners or a kids porn habits.
