Porn Addiction May Be the Most Common Form of Sexual Addiction

Our human compassion binds us the one to the other—not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.

One thing that almost all digital-era sex addicts have in common is pornography. We’ve all seen it, and many (maybe most) of us have used it compulsively as part of our active addiction. And why would we expect otherwise? The barriers to accessing porn that once existed (prior to and in the early days of the internet), like cost, proof of age, etc., are no longer in play. Today, all a person who’s interested in porn needs to do is find a porn site and start clicking. The amount of porn that’s currently available is so large and increasing so quickly (mostly thanks to user-generated imagery) that it’s unmeasurable.

Consider how porn use plays into your addiction. Is it a bottom-line behavior, or a slippery behavior that leads you into bottom-line behaviors?
