It is when your usual hobby of viewing nudity online or on paper interferes with your daily routine, activities, relationships and even work. It is also known as the habitual psychological or physiological dependence on a substance or practice which becomes beyond voluntary control. Most porn addicts have a hard time dealing with the addiction and it is also possible that they are not aware of their condition until they try to quit. These addicts use pornography (soft – hardcore) as a way for them to feel excited, aroused or even to the point of having sexual release. This habitual viewing may or may not be accompanied by masturbation. Read also – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27114191.

Internet Pornography statistics and size of Porn Industry

Pornography has permeated our society through multiple avenues: magazines, videos, adult stores, and the Internet. It is now so readily available and easily accessible that some suggest you don‟t even need to look for it—it looks for you. In 2006 alone, the pornography industry earned worldwide revenue of approximately 97.06 billion dollars, which is more than the combined revenues of Microsoft, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo!, Apple, Netflix, and EarthLink1.

There’s a big argument whether or not pornography can become an addiction. To people who views pornography on a daily basis; it is just a “guy-thing” – something that is normally expected from men and some women. However, some experts in sex addiction say that porn is a progressive type of addiction which starts at an early age. This progresses to watching soft porn to hard core explicit nudity and sexual acts. If your “hobby” or practice of viewing porn on a daily basis interferes with your life then that is what you call addiction. In truth, addicts are the last people to know that they are addicted. Being unable to control your sexual desires and wants is also a form of addiction. Things and practices shouldn’t be difficult to control or stop if you are not addicted to it.

Diagnosis of this condition is still under study since most “porn addicts” have their behaviors under perfect control. Often times, a diagnosis is made to label individuals and to help them recover from the condition. Moreover, sex addiction experts say that sexual addiction is rooted from different factors like early exposure to porn, insecurity, rejection, and past trauma – physical and/or sexual abuse.
