Porn Addiction

Pornography addiction, also known as hypersexual disorder, is characterized by excessive and persistent use of pornographic materials that interfere with an individual's daily life, relationships, and overall well-being. It is a type of behavioral addiction that can have negative physical, mental, and social consequences.


  • Do you spend excessive amounts of time viewing pornographic materials?

  • Do you have difficulty controlling or stopping your use of pornography?

  • Do you continue to use pornography despite negative consequences such as problems with relationships, work, or school?

  • Do you experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop using pornography?

  • Do you find that your use of pornography is affecting your daily life, relationships, or self-esteem?



  • The causes of pornography addiction are not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors.

  • Factors such as stress, trauma, and mental health disorders may increase the risk of developing pornography addiction.



  • Treatment for pornography addiction typically involves a combination of therapy, medication, and support groups.

  • Behavioral therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and contingency management can help individuals to change their behavior and reduce their use of pornography.

  • Medications such as antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication may be used to help alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety that may be associated with pornography addiction.

  • Support groups such as Sex Addicts Anonymous can provide individuals with emotional and social support as they work toward recovery.
