Pornography Addiction

Pornography or material of an erotic nature, has always taken a controversial role in society. Today, with the advent of the internet, pornography is once again a topic of debate. Graphic adult material is widely available and can be viewed from the privacy of your own home.

You might embrace this as an exciting convenience and opportunity. Finally, there's a confidential way to explore your sexuality without having to physically step into an adult bookstore. All you have to do is type in your own sexual proclivity and voila! No matter how outrageous or bizarre, chances are good you'll find out that you aren't alone in your interests. It feels healing and relieving to have your sexual thoughts validated.

Going online or viewing any kind of adult material does not make you a pornography addict. That is a definite fallacy. It's OK if you sometimes prefer masturbating online rather than having sex with your wife. But if it's becoming your only or preferred sexual outlet it's time to talk to me. Pornography is problematic when you start to exhibit the same tendencies found with other addictions. You're sneaky, over-indulgent and negligent with work or social obligations.

Pornography can be used positively. It's also something that you can learn to manage. I'll teach you ways to incorporate adult material into your life so that it is enhancing rather than inhibiting. It can also be incorporated into your relationship without having to be secretive. The more you are secretive, the more anxious you are and the more this will become an obsessive-compulsive addiction. You can manage your passion for pornography and have it be a healthy part of your life, I'll show you how.
