What's with this porn addiction stuff?

I just don't understand it. How can you be addicted to watching people screw? These people would rather get laid right? I've been seeing articles about married guys addicted to porn. Not trying to be judgemental. Just want to understand it. Chemical dependence I get. Your body physically needs that chemical to function properly. You can't be physically addicted to watching people screw. Phone Post 3.0

Because when you frame something as an addiction, it's not your fault

I like your name, OP. it's very... sensual.

as i understand it, the physical addiction is to the brain chemistry involved in extreme arousal. endorphins and what have you.

No idea how that's the case. When your addicted it's definitely you're fault. Addiction is rampant in my family it doesn't mean it isn't their fault. Phone Post 3.0

The problem watching it while masturbating to it and the brain's response/addiction to the dopamine & visual stimulation/connection over the course of time. Watch your brain on porn to get started.

I don't know about physical addiction, but there is something about it where if you don't watch for awhile and go back you'll start wanting to watch it a lot more than you thought.

The fact is, "access to unlimited porn since childhood" is a social-engineering experiment we don't know the outcome of yet. lol


i dont think its going to have a positive outcome tbh...its way too easy to get online, jerk off to some perfect chick doing exactly what you want and be done with it instead of hooking up with some random slut..
