Is Porn Addictive

I thought we would hit a hard subject with shared articles. I know usually I do funny light articles but I think this is important. I have long stated that people are not addicted to porn. They may become addicted to the hormonal drop that comes from an intense orgasm. They may only be able to have that orgasm through the use of pornography. This can happen for a lot of reason. They may have no current partner and porn is absolutely safer then a paid sexual partner and a one night stand. They have a partner that is not available physically and or emotionally. I have spoken to men who have a spouse that is ill and just can not have sexual relations with them. I have also spoken to a large number of men who have a spouse that refuse to have sexual relations very often or at all. Just because one spouse no longer has a desire for that type of physical contact it does not mean the other spouse loses that drive. A large number of men also have fetishes they are not comfortable with sharing with their significant other.  It does not matter the reason why men and sometimes women use pornography each one is personal and different from the other.  Science has finally came out and stated that I am correct in what I suspected all along. There is no physiological addiction to pornography. In this case it is all in your head or maybe in your hand. Take a look at the full article here is a quote from it and get a little brainy.

” In research invited for submission to the journal Socioaffective Neuroscience of Psychology, authors Steele, Staley, Fong and Prause(link is external) used EEG testing to examine the effects of visual erotica, on the brains of people who felt they had problems controlling their porn use. 52 sex addicts, including men and women, had their brain’s electrical activity examined while they looked at erotic imagery. Sex addiction theory predicts that these individuals would show brain patterns consistent with that of cocaine addicts, who demonstrate specific electrical changes in the brain’s activity, in response to drug-related cues. Sex addiction proponents, from Rob Weiss(link is external) to Carnes (link is external)have long argued that sex and porn are “like cocaine” in the brain.”
