PornograpyAddiction.com is a new website designed to help people struggling to overcome porn additions. It is run by a group of individuals who prefer to remain anonymous due to the sensitive nature of this site. In order to provide people with the best and most helpful resources, they have teamed up with several professionals who specialize in the field of addiction. Their collaboration resulted in the articles, videos and forums on PornographyAddiction.com.
Viewing porn on the Internet is practically a mainstream activity these days. As shown on PornographyAddiction.com's infographic, 70 percent of men aged 18-24 visit porn websites each month, and 40 million Americans visit porn websites on a regular basis. One reason why porn is becoming increasingly mainstream is because people are being introduced to it at very early ages. According to Internet Filter Software Review, these days, many children are exposed to porn at the tender age of 11. A report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office reveals that many of these children come into contact with porn by searching for seemingly innocuous things like cartoon character names. Pornographers deliberately target young children because they hope to get them hooked onto porn as early as possible; Internet porn is an incredibly lucrative business that brings in over $2.8 billion in revenue per year.
Men are far more open about viewing porn than women are, and this has led many people to believe that women don't watch porn. However, the truth is that a significant number of women also view porn; almost a third of all visitors to porn websites are women. The Newsweek article "The Sex Addiction Epidemic" notes that, to some degree, society expects and tolerates male porn viewing, but it treats women who view porn with a higher degree of disdain. This makes it difficult for women who struggle with porn addiction to admit that they have a problem and seek treatment.
Many people don't know if they are addicted to porn and some have attempted to definie when it becomes an addiction as described in this article by the Sinclair Institute. For example, if a person finds they are shunning events and activities on a regular basis because they would rather be home alone watching porn, then they may be addicted to porn. If a person finds that they can no longer become sexually aroused without the use of porn, then they may have a serious problem. Another sign of porn addiction is when a man who was perfectly happy with his relationship before he began viewing porn starts becoming critical of his partner's looks and performance in bed. That is part of the purpose of Pornographyaddiction.com, to help a person know if they are addicted and help them overcome the addiction.
