It's a slippery slope, and most people start looking at porn at a young age, thereby molding their minds to become accustomed to the extra stimulation porn provides.

I'm skeptical about the prospect of a thing called porn addiction.

RE: Skepticism: Porn... Addiction?
I think both this and sex addiction fall into "grey" area's of what it really is.

For me, I call it "self brainwashing" and can vary wildly. From what I've read and seen on TV, it can range from people having hardly any issue at all all the way up to "it destroyed my life", which is the worse degree of this.

From seeing documentaries on the subject, it's partly reliant on the person and their overall mind set as well. Some of those enjoy the "release" both physically and mentally, whilst others are fascinated in the actual act they see or do. Sometimes it mostly just becomes a habit, which then states relating to certain behaviors. For Example: Tired or angry? watch some porn. Then every time you get those feelings, you'll be compelled to view it.

It's a difficult thing to really define in terms of whats going on and how to counter act it. Porn being readily available may not assist, but some of things people get addicted too you need to be actively looking for as well, so each to their own on that one.
