Porn Addiction Explained

describe the imagePorn addiction can be a very confusing term -- with a lot of women thinking almost every man has one, and most men wanting to believe they don't.  So what's the truth about porn addiction?

Actually, porn addiction is less common than women believe and more than men want to accept.  Every man by design is visually stimulated, and thus easily attracted to porn, but this doesn't have to mean he has a porn addiction.

We all know that it's normal for all of us to have an attraction to sex.  Then it should be understandable that men would also then have a sexual appeal to porn too.

Most men struggle with sexual temptation.  Combine that with more than 420 million porn pages on the Internet (read more Porn Addiction Statistics), along with sexual messages that are nearly everywhere in our culture.   And it's no wonder that we've got a world where a lot of men struggle with porn addiction.

PORN ADDICTION - MEN VS. WOMEN

Nearly all men are embarrassed and ashamed about their desire to look at porn.  As a result, they usually watch porn in secret, and will be deceitful and hide it.  When caught they'll deny it, lie about it, rationalize it, make excuses and blame it on someone or something else (learn more about porn from this Porn Addiction Infographic).

Since women are wired differently and sexually aroused less visually they almost never get the appeal of porn to men.  Typically women want to believe they it's other men who look at porn, not their man.  If they find out their man actually does watch porn, they are often repulsed, confused, angry, threatened, frightened, and take it to mean something about themselves not being good enough.
