Palm Springs, CA’s Choice Sexual Addiction Recovery Program

Porn addiction is considered a subset of sexual obsession and can have devastating effects on a couple’s intimacy and relationship. It can also negatively impact your mindset and enable you in more destructive impulsive behaviors. Studies show that 40 million adults in the U.S. visit internet pornography sites regularly and 88% of porn scenes contain physical aggression while 49% contain verbal aggression. Obsessive viewing of this material can lead to unhealthy expectations in relationships and aggressive behavior in the bedroom. We offer comprehensive sexual addiction therapy programs that will help you or a loved one deal with their addiction and move forward with leaving it behind. Contact us now for more information. 

Warning Signs of Porn Addiction

While not all experts agree that watching porn is destructive, there are warning signs that you or a loved one may have a pornography addiction. These include:

• Your viewing of pornography interferes with daily life activities

• A tolerance for more aggressive or perverse pornography develops

• Feelings of withdrawal from loved ones

• Compulsive masturbation

• Sexual dysfunction (impotence, premature ejaculation, etc.)

• The use of pornography negatively impacts your relationships

Causes of Porn Addiction

Pornography consumption can become an addiction just like other substances. This is due to “operant conditioning” which means certain behaviors (“watching porn”) are reinforced with some kind of reward (typically ejaculation or the release of endorphins in your brain). Since sex is a need that’s inherent in every individual and pornography is so rampant and easy to obtain online, this addiction can be fed in unhealthy ways and cause relationships problems you may have with a loved one. While a mate would usually fulfill these needs, you may now find yourself unable or willing to be intimate with your mate due to the instant gratification that comes with enjoying pornography. This behavior reinforces negative stereotypes and expectations into your relationships and can lead to aggressive behavior in the bedroom. We can help you or a loved one, unpack and address their porn addiction, and move towards healthier relationships. Call us now to schedule an initial consultation.
