Women getting hooked on internet porn

According to reports, many women are getting hooked on internet porn as a way of dealing with anxiety.

Quit Porn Addiction, one of the UK’s main porn counselling services said that one in three clients are struggling with their own porn use.

Founder and counsellor Jason Dean said that there were no women showing up for help a few years ago. He said that he now gets inquiries from 70 women a year who are asking for help. Six out of 10 women say that they view internet porn, but only 17 percent class themselves as ‘addicted’.

Dean spoke to AP and said that they are following the same patterns as men and are becoming desensitized to increasingly hardcore porn. It gets to a point when women start acting more like men in their attitudes to relationships. The only differences between men and women addicts is that women feel more guilty about it.

Dean said that porn addiction is regarded as a ‘male problem’ and it therefore not acceptable for women. Women feel that what they are doing is ‘wrong, bad, dirty and wrong’ and they are often unable to get beyond that feeling.

KitGuru says: With the ease of accessing porn online, the problems are becoming more and more pronounced and people can spend hours a week viewing porn.
