5 SIGNS OF PORN ADDICTION

  1. Your significant other is no longer interested in sex. This is one of the first signs of a porn addiction that many partners notice. Those addicted to porn use up all of their sexual energy in the fantasy of porn, and at some point, they actually like the sexual excitement of the fantasy more than the intimacy of actual sex.
  2. Your partner is unable to maintain an erection. This symptom goes hand-in-hand with the first symptom. An erection is controlled by the brain, and if your partner is no longer interested in sex with you, then he won’t be able to achieve an erection.
  3. Your significant other lives on the internet. If someone’s internet time has gone up significantly, there’s a reason. If you find that your partner is constantly on the internet, or stays up late into the night on the computer, they may be watching porn. If your partner gets to the point that they prefer to stay home rather than do wholesome activities and become irritable when forced away from the computer, then a porn addiction may be forming.
  4. You notice the internet browser history is constantly empty. Someone who is addicted to porn likes to hide their tracks, so no one knows. After all, if no one knows what you are doing, how can it be hurtful? This sign should be taken very seriously, and you should confront your loved one when you discover this pattern.
  5. You no longer satisfy your partner in bed. When someone is addicted to porn, they see all of these rough, unwholesome sex scenes between others, and they may want to try it out with you. If your significant other suddenly becomes interested in rough sex or dominatrix-type sex, then this is a sign of a porn addiction.
