Pornography addiction is becoming ever-more prevalent in our society. It’s wide spread availability in print and on the internet, makes access all too easy. It can often be viewed, used, or consumed in private making it hard to immediately notice a friend or family member developing an addiction.
However, there are a few common signs to watch out for.
People who excessively view pornography start to increasingly withdraw from family and social circles. This is often related to consumption of the images as well as a feeling of social shame.
This can be especially troublesome if the person in question is your spouse or partner. In time pornography addiction can lead to a lack of interest, social distance, and even sexual dysfunction. This might also be associated with insomnia issues or problems with staying asleep throughout the night.
Excess pornography consumption can also lead to secretive behavior in hiding print materials, deleting browser history, hiding sexual dysfunction, and general disinterest in intimate connections.
