In today’s day and age, access to porn is literally at the tips of our fingers. Smartphones, the internet, and pornography sites have made it so easy for us to find and difficult for us to stay away. This has led to an increase in pornography consumption. According to the American Psychological Association, one out of two men and one out of three women admit to watching porn. The rise in views also means that there has been an increase in pornography addiction. Because of this, it is important to Desert Solace that people know the signs and symptoms associated with porn addiction.

The biggest sign of porn addiction is if when an individual prioritizes watching porn over everything else. Like other types of addiction, addiction to pornography takes over lives. Porn addicts might neglect work, family, and other important aspects of your personal life, choosing pornography over your personal commitments. Even when someone is not watching, they might be thinking about the next time they might get a break long enough to watch and are looking forward to that moment all day.

Another porn addiction symptom is a loss of interest in sex. Pornography often gives unrealistic impressions of beauty and sex. When you surround yourself with these unrealistic standards, it’s easy to get lost in them and project them onto those around you. Because of this, those with porn addictions often lose sexual interest in their partners as they don’t meet the new false beauty standards. Those with porn addiction may also lose interest in sex because they’ve become frustrated that their partner doesn’t want to try new sexual fantasies that were discovered in porn.

Using pornography as a mood changer or as a way to avoid unpleasant feelings — such as anxiety or depression — is another sign that someone might be facing a pornography addiction. If watching porn is a release from stressful situations or the highlight of the day, then a person may have an addiction to porn. Most addictions begin as an escape from stress and progress until the person with the addiction believes that the only way to relieve their stress is by performing that behavior, in this case watching porn.

These symptoms are common in those who have pornography addictions, however they are not the only symptoms that exist. Though addiction is awful, there is good news: it is treatable.
