Do you have a porn addiction?

SaMiKaY SaMiKaY
I was told a while back that I had an addiction to porn. I defended myself saying I didn't NEED to watch it, I just enjoyed it. To this day, I watch a porn about every other day (or more if it's that time of the month) and even watch it with my partner.

Are you addicted?

lol. I think that you would most likely have a similar pattern of porn consumption as most others who view this material. The bulk of people who do watch or consume porn, from the research I have read, do so periodically through the week, and do so for less than an hour. I spend more time looking at books...doesn't mean I have a book addiction

I would agree with your statement that if you like it, don't need it/it's not negatively impacting your life in a compulsive way/you can maintain intimate relationships..., enjoy what makes you happy I certainly do

My exboyfriend had an addiction to porn, and it did negatively impact our relationship. He also was one of those guys that just can't have sex/masturbate/ejacula te in general terribly often, or he'll lose his erection. So what would happen is that after I went to bed, he would sneak into the other room, watch porn, and obviously masturbate. Then the next night when I would try to seduce him, he would say he was too tired or something, because he knew he wouldn't be able to keep an erection if he tried to have sex with me. When he finally admitted his problem to me, I tried to be supportive and positive about it. Even though at the time I was a little weirded out by porn (didn't think there was anything wrong with it, I just felt uncomfortable watching it), I suggested that we watch together, as part of foreplay. I knew that a lot of couples did this. And I told him that instead of masturbating, we would have sex instead. He didn't like that idea and never bothered to come up with ideas of his own. While I wouldn't say that this problem is the REASON we broke up, it was pretty indicative of our problems. There would something he was doing (or not doing) and I would bring it to his attention. He would listen and care and apologize, but when it came down to trying to fix our problems, he never liked my ideas and never tried to come up with his own. I felt generally neglected by him in a lot of ways. It wasn't his addiction to porn that caused the real problem, but his lack of willingness to do something about it.

I used to watch porn a lot but once you have kids running around it's pretty difficult to watch.

Infamous 'Other' - I don't watch every day, but I do watch more than I'd like.

We usually watch it together. I feel that as long as a person is not spending so much time with porn that he or she is avoiding real intimacy, there isn't a problem.

I have a weird stance on porn. I think porn is the greatest thing out there. I think women who think its cheating just don't get it. But at the same time I don't find myself watching it very often. I'll watch it when I am bored or have enough alone time, but as I get older and get more responsibilities I get less time.

I like to watch it often, but I would not consider it an addiction.

I'm not really into porn, so no.

Yeah, I'm not really into it either. I've known some men though, who were so into it they'd rather just watch porn than be with their "real girlfriends".

Honestly be it on the internet, hard drive or DVD, I spend more time looking for the porn I want to watch then watching it.

I would also say often, but not an addiction.

My Man and I go in spurts. We may spend days watching it before and even during every session (once or twice a day) and then "forget" we have porn for weeks at a time. We sometimes go weeks without it, then remember, "Oh, yeah, we have dirty movies to watch!"

But, an "addiction?" No.

Of course to some 12 Step Programs all that requires to be addicted is to claim you aren't. How can you win with that idea?

We like it and watch it from time to time. It's fun. I have worked hard to be less "offended" by things for the last few years and re-embracing porn is one of those things.

I enjoy watching porn, I don't think it's an addiction. I just enjoy viewing it. I'm a guy.

Why isn't there an "I do not watch porn ever" option? I don't watch it, neither does my partner or family members.

Don't have or watch porn at all. I'm thinking of picking up a few books though.

I have two movies, one of which is out on loan to my boss. And they both feature my favourite porn actor, but I don't watch them that often. It's such a hassle to drag my laptop all the way upstairs, and I don't really have a good spot to put it on my bed when I'm sleeping, so...every now and then, but it's been...oh, at least a month since I watched any. My mom's also home on leave, so she's around all the time.

I prefer to read erotica. Don't have to worry about anyone overhearing things they shouldn't

If im bored ill pop some on. I think the addiction comes when you are paying heavily for porn.

Kendra30752, You're right! I completely forgot that option!

Menarae, So true! I haven't read erotica since I moved out of my grandparents though. I am more of an audible person. =)

IT guy, I agree.

With so much out there, can't see the benefit. After a couple of selections over the past 10 years, they ended up in the trash and I decided to read erotica books instead!
