When You May Need Porn Addiction Therapy

When You May Need Porn Addiction Therapy

Are you unsure whether your porn viewing habits are healthy? Do you find yourself distracted by thoughts about porn while at work, being alone, plagued with boredom, socialising or while spending time with your family? It’s not always easy to determine if or when you need porn addiction therapy, but there are some signs to look out for.

Compulsive Thoughts and Behaviours

Porn addicts often find themselves thinking about porn almost around the clock, despite their best efforts to stop. This is because the brain is stuck in the addiction cycle where it is constantly seeking the ‘reward’, which for porn addicts, is watching/masturbating to porn. If you find yourself struggling to stop these thoughts and the urge to watch porn, it may be time to see a porn addiction therapist.

Masturbation Addiction

Masturbation addiction is a common side effect of both sex and porn addiction. Porn addicts often find it difficult to resist the urge to masturbate whilst watching porn and as such, masturbation addiction can quickly develop.

Indulging Despite Negative Consequences

If watching porn is having a negative effect on your job, family, financial or social life, one would assume you would simply stop or change what you are doing, right? Continuing to indulge in a behaviour or act on an impulse, despite the negative consequences, is a clear indication of addiction. At this stage, a professional sex therapist is the best person to help.
