Porn Harms – Reach Out For Help

“I stayed up at night to watch porn. I told myself that it would be a few minutes. Before I knew it I got lost in the sexual images I was watching in front of me. I clicked on another scene and then another one. The minutes turned into hours. I slept only 3-4 hours and was exhausted for the rest of the day. I said I would not repeat this. Before I knew it I did it again.”

Do you relate to this? Did the above or something similar happened to you?

Porn is causing a number of issues and people around the world are waking up to that. There is evidence that porn is or can become addictive. There is also evidence that porn can lead to less satisfying sex with one’s partner, to objectification of men or women, to difficulties in developing and sustaining real relationships and much more.

Porn is not about honesty, respect and healthy sex between partners. The vast majority of porn out there depicts disrespect, subordination or even aggression towards women. A lot of porn out there encourages promiscuity and infidelity, things that can severely harm other people.

Evidence shows that women in relationships “often report feeling loss, betrayal, mistrust, devastation, and anger when they learn that their partner in a committed relationship has been using porn. Many women show physical symptoms of anxiety and depression. Some show signs of PTSD, and some even become suicidal.” (Quote from the Fight The New Drug website).

There is no doubt that porn is becoming a major issue in today’s world as it is harming men, women and relationships. If you would like more evidence in regards to the harmful effects of porn please check out the following websites:
