Pron Addiction Isn't Real Research Suggests

Recommended Posts

A serious addiction or a way of preventing sex offences? New research suggests that being addicted to porn might not be real after all.

But a leading sex therapist has stressed that the condition is real and “devastating”.

A clinical psychologist and the director of a behavioural health programme, Dr David Ley, claims that there is no strong evidence to prove that a person can be addicted to pornography.

After reviewing current studies into pornography addiction, he discovered that 37 per cent of studies describe excessive use of porn as an addiction, while 27 per cent of articles contain no data at all.

His study published in the journal 'Current Sexual Health Reports', also suggests that there are no negative side effects for a person who excessively uses porn, and that there is no link between erectile dysfunction.

Dr Ley added that experiments into the condition based on these articles are therefore carried out poorly and without scientific rigour.

When these factors are combined, he claims that the pool of evidence proving porn addiction is real is very shallow.

So how did these studies get published if the papers contained no data?

There's a whole addiction industry which basically consists of telling people things aren't their fault, because they have "an addiction".

If it's rich and famous people that have the addiction then the more it becomes not their fault. Sex addicition ffs.

If a serious alcoholic stops drinking then they die, which nearly happened to a cousin of a friend. He had been an alcoholic but he had sworn to his wife that he had given up. He was taken into hospital clearly seriously ill and his body started shutting down, it looked like alcohol withdrawal but his wife insisted that he didn't drink anymore so keep trying other things. Eventually have exhausted all other alternatives and in a last ditch effort to keep him alive they fed in some alcohol. Instant recovery!

It turned out that after "giving up" he had been surreptitiously drinking spirits throughout the day at work and was a master at hiding it.

Now that is a proper addiction.

Porn addiction is the new 'bipolar', self -diagnosed from books and currently trendy. Doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Speak to any therapist who has worked with porn addictions, particularly with young boys and they will say it is very real, ultimately devastating and has profound implications for their future relationships, self- esteem and lifes.

This Chanel 4 documentary is simplistic but interesting. Worth watching...

Is that the one with the lad who um, you know, nearly 30 times a day? I don't know how he finds the time, he must work for the planning department.

:) That sounds about right.

Worth a watch for any parents out there.

"Pr0n" has probably been here since the beginning of time. That tree stump might be very suggestive for instance, or a funny shaped vegetable might look like something else!
