Technology Facilitates but Does Not Cause Sexual Addiction

Technology is neutral. How it affects us depends on how it’s used.

There is little doubt that sexnology (porn, hookup apps, webcams, etc.) facilitates and drives modern-day sexual addiction. However, it does not appear to be a root cause of sexual addiction. In fact, most people can use porn, hookup apps, and the like in non-compulsive and life affirming ways. They do not become addicted, and they do not experience negative consequences. However, individuals who are predisposed to addiction (usually thanks to a combination of nature and nurture) may well struggle with sexnology, just as they might struggle with alcohol, drugs, gambling or any other potentially addictive substance or activity.

Just for Today
Stop blaming porn and hookup apps for your addiction and look within yourself for the underlying causes.
