    I think it's a bad habit, it's something that can be managed and will show you how bad it is if you've been recovering from it. I think it's harmful to society because it's very delusional and creates an artificial alternative to sex and love. There's a major difference between two couples loving each other and that product porn, which is mainly used to produce money.

    Porn addiction can be serious negative impacts to the brain and the way of thought first everyone is hooked on because of the instant gratification but slowly the term love making vanishes from the act and you are left with only the physical activity and your ability to enjoy sex decreases and it merely becomes an activity

    I watch porn. I own porn. All my friends watch porn. Being addicted to porn is an issue. But the fact that people are going to talk about what porn does to people is effing ridiculous! It does not turn you into anything. It is not immoral, it doesn't turn you into a rapist, this thread had genuine Intentions, but then ignorance took over.

    Everyone on this site site needs a reality check! Coming in here and thinking you can say these outlandish and offensive things to people who genuinely need help is BS. They could go to church if they wanted to hear this propaganda.

    If you are going to tell someone some BS just so you can hear yourself type, I can recommend many different religious sites where they would love to hear this if ignorant crap.

    Porn does NOT make a rapist. A rapist, first of all, is looking for the power trip, not sex. Either someone is born with the potential to be a rapist or not. It has nothing to do with porn. Nothing at all.

    AMEN! Preach it sister!
    I can't believe some of the things I have read in the last week or so that have been so unsupportive and cold! I thought this was more of a supportive forum not a "what's wrong with those darn addicts?" forum.

    This site has been a lot of help for me! There are some people here who have been so supportive! And I'm so grateful. But I swear, sometimes people want to use this as an opportunity to judge things the obviously don't understand. I tried to write one of those, "it'd be just like if...", but I can't think of anything that compares to what I've read on this site lately.

    Porn addiction is a very real problem and it's no laughing matter. Many young guys who have been hooked on porn for a number of years, suffer intimacy problems. They often have issues with ejaculating or even erectile dysfunction when they engage in sexual intercourse. Fortunately, this is something that can be treated if the porn addict decides to take this route.

    This thread got way off track.First off perhaps porn can be addicting but I guarantee you that jacking off to porn does not increase the probability that one day you will go out and start raping women,that entire assumption has me just pissed off and here's why.I have been separated for 5 year's but I'm still married and for that vow I meant every word,I have not had sex in 5 year's so from time to time I do watch porn,I try to limit it to maybe every other week simply because I don't like the feeling after I'm done,like I feel disgusted in myself simply because I do ok but you couldn't put me near a rapist period because I am going to beat them like I can't describe on here because it would be stupid but I promise you this if they lived through it I didn't do my job as a man.Rspist are not looking to climax,they are looking to impose their will in the most disgusting violent way anyone could imagine....People sitting at home watching porn probably just want to cum!!Incredibly insulting people would without proof make such a connection because it's people like me who make sure a rapist pays for the evil acts they have committed and by that I mean we report them to the authorities :confused::confused:o_Oo_O.Women watch porn as well are they in danger of becoming a rapist?I can't even have sex with a prostitute because I know she doesn't really want to,I know I tried and ended up just giving her the money because it doesn't excite me to know the other person really doesn't want to...Why?Because I have a fuc*in Heart

    Joshstillclean Stupidity Exists - Fact.

    I have been struggling with wondering if I'm a sex addict lately.
    However I believe I have come to the conclusion that I am not. I do find myself thinking about it a whole lot.
    Its starting to get to the point where I mean like when I was sixteen a lot.

    I hate porn. Oh really I do. Believe me or don't I don't care. I do like what i see when I see a topless woman in a movie though. But i try and keep my thoughts pure.

    I have had one girlfriend since I have been clean. And I am not going to lie I skipped work for sex. I didn't date her long because i realized I wasn't interest in anything long term and so to continue to date her would have been for sex only. I don't use people.

    So since I have been clean I have had sex about thirty or fourty times I would say. This is within the span of a week which is why i was wondering if I had a problem. I was seriously putting sex before anything else. But when not around her anymore I did not have a need for porn or the need to get off like crazy. Actually before I met her I tried to watch porn and it was gross to me. As a very young teen though I could watch porn all day. But I got married very young. And since then I haven't wanted anything but the real deal.
    When I was 14 I would watch porn until I was raw. Like it hurt to walk the next day.
    But honestly I never felt anything but a greater desire for a real female. Someone to touch.
    This is craziness. I do think porn is immoral and feel no need to justify that opinion.
    I also believe you should be married to your parter. I'm not perfect.
    But as far as it turning you into a rapist if that were the case then I need to get help now because I guess I've slept with alot of women that didn't say they wanted it...
    My wife and I when we were in our teens and early twenties never watched porn...why would we? We could go through a box of condoms in a day, if you have a parter and still need porn something is wrong. I also agree with true, I couldn't do it if she wasn't into it also.
    My sons mom has had times when she was tired after work but it had been a couple days and she would be willing if i wanted just because she cared about me and knew I wanted HER. Thangs what I'm getting at in wanted HER not someone on a tv screen. And actually its gone the other way around too she has told me she wanted it, when I was tired. Thats what couples do FOR each other...and WITH each other...porn isn't the way to go.
