Porn addiction destroys relationships, lives

A 50-year-old married physician views Internet pornography for hours at home, masturbating five to seven times a day, then begins surfing porn sites at the office and risks destroying his career.

A woman spends four to six hours a day in Internet chat rooms and having cybersex, and eventually starts arranging to meet online strangers for casual sex in the real world.

A man spends many hours a day downloading porn, filling multiple hard drives, and devotes a separate computer just to pornography.

A married couple view pornographic movies together as part of their loving relationship, but the husband starts spending more time watching and less time with his wife, who feels left behind and rejected.

  • Marriage ruins relationships and lives!!! Marriage in an age of "well intended laws" is perverse!

  • Its only prude, missionary only, uptight people who aren't getting any action that make it out to be a disease. In reality, its those very people who are the disease to human nature.

    So what if some broad was crouching on Tiger and hiding his dragon, Thats his business, not ours. Personally, I thought he was a closet fruit basket but I guess I was wrong. Go get em Tiger...

  • I think they are taking this "Addiction" concept a little too literal.

    Perhaps they should look at the sex life of the married individuals and then compare them to single attractive individuals, you will find a relationship there especially when you calculate before and during marriages.

  • Yes folks you heard it right, sexuality is now defined as a disease.
    Well if it is a disease then by definition it must have physical symptoms.

    This whole "disease concept" falls a part when they say an alcoholic can never have another drink ever again. And oh by the way, a food addict and sex addict can/must relearn these behaviors so they become healthy again!

    Wrap your brains around that one!

    • I blame clothes for all of this. If we never would have invented clothes then we wouldn't freak out every time we see a nipple...

      Also, we never would have moved from tropical regions of the Earth. I'd be sitting someplace warm instead of punching my car door in order to break the ice freezing it shut... It took me over 30 min to scrape off my car in order to get to work this morning...

    • well my friend, why bother going out and trying to engage an actual woman, risk getting a DUI, and forcing yourself to create all kinds of rediculous routines and schticks in hopes of duping a woman into wanting you when you could just get high in your room and jerk off all over your computer screen before you pass out while dreaming of all the awesome things you will never be ?

  • The Nazi party flooded Germany with pornography in the years leading up to the breakout of their war, it kept the peoples' minds off what was going on in German politics ... as well as keeping idle hands busy.

      Remember that old saying:
      Idle hands are the devil's workshop.

    • Hell, it can actually help a marriage some days, a quick toss to clear the pipes and a man can look at his wife in the eyes again and not just at her tits when she speaks to him.

      As for this wanker jerkin the gherkin 7 times a day then looking for more porn at work ... WTF??? Bugger's just a bit greedy, no?

    • ha ha, I agree, there's a limit to everything.
      Except my Crown Royal. Can't have too much on hand.
      It doesnt make me go cross eyed, blind, or grow a uni-brow or hair on the palms of my hands, or stutter like my Dad told me.
      Experts say there's nothing wrong with masturbation.
      Even animals do it.
      Shoot, we were so poor we jacked off the dog to feed the cat.
