The effects of porn addiction are undeniable. Those who suffer from such an addiction, frequently struggle with a desire to part from their addictive issue. The nature of porn addiction infiltrates the mind by gradually permeating the very essence of the individual. The individual becomes so entangled by the web of such an addiction, that every waking moment is about fulfilling the addiction. In many cases porn addicts frequently feel that the pornography has so entrenched their mind, that they begin carrying on a surreptitious like affair with their pornographic habit.
WHAT IS THE CAUSATION OF PORN ADDICTIONS?
There is no absolute cause for porn addiction. Porn addiction can occur because of a variety of issues. A child who runs across his father’s collection of pornography, may develop a habitual need for pornography. A man or woman whose partner denies them continuously, their sexual desires or advancements, may find pornography as a comfortable replacement.
“A 50-year old married physician views internet pornography for hours at home, masturbating five to seven times a day, then begins surfing porn sites at the office… A woman spends four to six hours a day in internet chat rooms and having cybersex… A married couple view pornographic movies together as part of their loving relationship, but the husband starts spending more time watching…” (SFGate, 2011, Online)
There is no one single causation for porn or sexual addictions, rather there a multiple number of causations that could be the catalyst for such sexual deviance. Pornographic and sexual addictions frequently stem from childhood related abuses, sexual indiscretions, psychological and psychiatric disorders, familial violence and abuse, relationship violence and abuse, traumas incurred in childhood or as an adult, an opportunity for sexual or pornographic imagery, relationship problems with a spouse, or compulsive needs.
