Pornography Addictions Can Ruin Lives

If pornography is something that is viewed often or is needed to fantasize for sex , it can be very harmful, for both the addict and those that care about him or her. We strive to explain misconceptions, consequences, and treatment options related to pornography over use and addiction.

 

Misconceptions

One misconception about pornography addiction is that it is limited to men. While it is true that the majority of those who report having a pornography addiction are men, women are susceptible to this addiction as well. If you believe that you have become addicted to pornography, you should know that there are treatment options available to you regardless of your orientation or gender. Another misconception related to pornography addiction is that it is limited to the viewing of pictures or videos. This is false, as erotic literature can become just as addictive and destructive to a relationship.

Another misconception that people have, relating specifically to porn and relationships, is that it can’t be cheating if it is just porn. Whether or not viewing pornography counts as cheating in the strictest sense is up for debate, but know that it can break trust and ruin relationships just as easily as cheating with an actual partner.  If the addiction causes the addict to lie to their partner, keep secrets, sneak away, and generally neglect their partner, then the relational effects are not much different than those of an affair.

 

Consequences

Like all addictions, a pornography addiction can have many negative consequences, both for the addict and those around them. As mentioned before, it can ruin relationships. The damage goes beyond the relationship between the addict and the partner.  Someone who devotes many of their waking hours to viewing or reading porn (as is the case with an addiction) will likely neglect their children and friends, as well as their spouse. This addiction can also prevent single people from finding meaningful relationships. For one, it can reduce their motivation to go out and meet an actual person. A porn addiction can also create unrealistic expectations for the addict when they do pursue a relationship, as the reality often fails to match the fantasy.

Pornography can result in huge financial losses as well. Most pornographic sites allow users to enter their credit card information and order images and videos with the click of a button. All of those orders add up very quickly, and can soon lead to thousands of dollars in credit card debt. Combine that with the lost wages that can occur if the addiction interferes with work, and the situation becomes very dire indeed.

Treatment

One of the best treatments for pornography addiction is therapy. Some addicts are afraid to go to a therapist because it is such a sensitive, personal subject, and they are embarrassed discussing it. Embarrassment should never be a reason to refrain from seeking therapy. For one, Certifies Sex Addiction Therapists, or CSAT’s, specialize in helping clients  deal with this situation, and are equipped to handle it delicately and confidentially, and at Bull City Psychotherapy, we have a team of CSAT’s and CSAT’s in training. Secondly, the truly “embarrassing” thing about the addiction is the consequences that it can have, and the destruction that it can wreak on an individual or family. In this case, therapy is the first step toward healing.
