What Is Porn Addiction?

When we talk about porn addiction, we’re referring to a person who’s become emotionally dependant on pornography to a point that it begins to interfere with their daily life, from their relationships to their basic daily functions.

Porn addiction is actually surprisingly common and can affect anyone, of any gender, in all walks of life. Some doctors consider this to be a hyper-sexual disorder which can be classed as excessive masturbation as well as a number of other behaviours.

Porn addiction is still very much a controversial issue as some research still exists that claims it to not be a ‘real condition’. Porn addiction however, is very much a real addiction and here at Infinity Addiction Solutions, we have great experience in helping those with a porn addiction.

It must first be recognised that there is a great difference between excessive use of porn and a true porn addiction. Sex or masturbation can be a highly rewarding behaviour thanks to the dopamine it releases into our brain and it’s this ‘reward’ that can lead to addictive behaviour.

Porn addiction affects everyone differently and just as with any other addiction, doesn’t happen overnight. Porn addiction will be a gradual process whereby an individual becomes addicted to pornographic images and videos.

They will continue to watch these videos and view these images, repeatedly, even when it the outcome creates a negative effect on their life whether that’s their personal relationships or even their career and daily functions.

A porn addiction can escalate very quickly once it’s begun to develop in both time and level of graphic content, with viewers often becoming desensitised to those images. This can occur to the extent that the addict looks to seek their ‘thrills’ elsewhere which can become dangerous.
