This is how to know if your addicted to porn

They say too much of a good thing can harm you. Porn, when watched in moderation, can be fun, exciting, and even good for your relationship. But when you end up watching more and more porn instead of focusing on your relationship, it becomes a problem. Here are five signs that you may be addicted to porn.

You crave pornographic films

Like a craving for something sweet or salty, you long to watch porn. Sometimes, things like seeing a couple kiss or a sext from your partner may trigger your craving to watch an X-rated film.

You feel guilty/ashamed of your habit

It’s not that you don’t feel upset or confused about your habit, but you can’t stop it no matter how hard you try. Your addiction to porn soon starts messing with other areas of your life and might make you anti-social or withdrawn.

You look for different types of porn

You get bored with regular pornography and want to explore more adventurous types. You trawl the internet for weirder, more bizarre porn, and you’re okay with breaking rules or using illegal methods to obtain it.

You don’t feel attracted to your partner anymore

Sex with your partner has become rare, and when you do indulge, you don’t get any pleasure from it. The attraction between you two has waned and you’d much rather just watch a pornographic film and pleasure yourself.

You believe sex in porn is how it should be in real life

One of the main reasons you don’t feel attracted to your partner is because you feel like he/she is lacking in the sexuality department. You want your sex life to be exactly how it is in porn, and your expectations about intimacy are twisted.

You’re unable to cultivate relationships

Addiction to pornography can make you put your relationships on the backburner. Chances of you becoming antisocial are high if you can’t get past the addiction, and your relationships, intimate or otherwise, tend to suffer.

Your sex life takes a nosedive

You might lose interest in sex altogether. The only thing you’d want to do that comes close to sex is watch pornography. You may stop going on dates, or even being attracted to another person.
