San Jose, CA (PRWEB) December 25, 2011
The pornography industry is pervasive in modern culture and can often be destructive - leading to addiction, neglect of loved ones, a withdrawal from life, mounting debt and more. In fact, at the turn of the last century, as familysafemedia.com reports, pornography accounted for 1.3 million websites and over 260 million pages; the porn industry's annual take averages over $13 billion here in the US and nearly $100 billion across the globe.
Pornography Is Ruining Relationships
Staggering enough in scope, pornography is also being blamed for countless failed marriages and relationships. A recent poll conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that two-thirds of divorce lawyers reported that the internet played a major role in the divorce cases they presided over and that more than half of those cases involve an infatuation or a supposed addition by one partner to online porn.
6-8% Of Americans Are Sex Addicts
According to the National Association of Sexual Addiction Problems, an estimated 6 to 8% of Americans are sex addicts; roughly 16 to 21.5 million people. However, a scant few reach out for help with their addiction because of the shame and social stigma that's associated with their affliction. Fortunately, a new website is offering free help for porn addicts - feedtherightwolf.org.
