What is Sex, Love & Porn Addiction, and how we treat it

Sex, Love & Porn Addiction is a term used to describe a physical, psychological and or emotional dependency. Sex, Love & Porn Addiction presents itself in many different forms, the most common of which is the dependency on loving people, sex, masturbation, porn, and many more. Its roots are located predominantly in stress and anxiety disorders, and addictive behaviours serve as a temporary relief to these symptoms. Eventually, addiction causes an often-devastating impact on all areas of life, resulting in chronic health conditions, poor social engagement, isolation, work problems, family and relationship breakdown, a chaotic lifestyle, debt or financial problems.

Sex, Love & Porn Addiction can develop quickly or over a long period. The person loses control and the ability to stop when they had planned to. The behavior begins to control and manipulate a person’s life. People are often referred to as being an ‘addict’ and having an ‘addiction’ once this pattern of behavior has taken root. In its most chronic state, the addicts’ main purpose, function, and desire are to ‘feed’ the addiction. This cultivates an endless cycle of unhealthy behavior which triggers an overwhelming sense to ‘use more, more frequently’ to feel satisfied. This ‘using’ behavior becomes the only means of pleasure or ‘escape’ for the addict.
