FAQs About Porn Addiction



By Mishaun Taylor

Porn and addiction are difficult things to understand. The emotions that become involved are enough to have you reeling anyway, so trying to think logically can be hard. For that reason, here are some of the most frequently asked questions about porn addiction.

1. What actually constitutes a porn addict? Looking at porn is not abnormal for many. In fact, many non-addicts enjoy looking at porn. However, when you find that you are thinking of porn all the time and cannot go without looking at it, you are most likely a porn addict. There is no sure sign of an addict but there are several common ways that people know. If you think about porn all the time, if you look at people you pass as being sexual objects and picture them nude or have unwholesome thoughts about them, you may be an addict.

2. How can you tell if your partner is addicted to porn? One of the most important signs is that your partner is trying to hide something from you. Being on the computer late at night while you are sleeping, using the computer in a private room or protecting the computer with a password may all be signs of porn addiction. You may notice that if you ask about porn or the computer usage, your spouse gets frustrated or upset. These things tend to be very common signs of a porn addiction and may be red flags for your own partner.

3. What should you do if you find your partner is addicted to porn? That is something that will need to be discussed between the two of you. Treatment should be considered and sought after by both the partner who is addicted and the ‘supporting’ partner. Both of you will have resulting issues to deal with and someone who is addicted to porn needs help to find the root issue. Without dealing with this root issue, they may turn again to porn or some other means for dealing with it.

4. What can I do about my partner who is addicted to porn if he or she will not seek counseling or treatment? The most important thing for you to do in this situation is seek treatment alone or with a supportive friend. Through this counseling, you can pursue your next step. If your partner is unwilling to seek treatment, it shows a disregard or a denial of their problem. You may have to decide whether you will continue on with or without your partner from this point.

5. What should you do if you find your partner has been looking at illegal porn? Should you find that your partner has been looking at porn containing minors or other illegal things, you should immediately report these occurrences to the authorities. Porn like this goes beyond a typical porn addiction and is a sign of a serious underlying psychological issue. You should seek counseling for yourself to deal with any resulting issues stemming from the situation. It is extremely important to report your spouse as it may be the only way to help him or her get treatment.
