Everyone is curious about sex; which probably contributes to why I write a weekly article about sex. We’re all wondering about sex. We’re so curious that there’s an entire museum dedicated to sex in New York City (It’s called the Museum of Sex on 5th Avenue, I highly recommend it).

It’s this morbid curiosity that has made the pornography industry so huge and still growing. (For those who missed it, that was a penis reference.) Pornography has permitted many a 7th grader to understand exactly how sex works. I don’t know about the rest you, but health class in 6th grade did not teach me that the penis actually goes in the vagina. I used to think two people just went under the covers and squirmed around like they do in Sims. But thanks to pornhub.com, I learned what sex actually entails.

I am of the belief that porn is awesome, and I say that at the risk of being attacked by liberal feminists arguing how it increases sexual violence and discrimination against women.

I believe that if it gets me off, can it really be that bad? Unfortunately the answer is yes. Porn, like alcohol, chocolate fudge layer cake, and all pleasing things in life can become addicting. The Statesman was contacted by a gentleman named Reed Davis who asked the newspaper to help bring to light the issue of pornography addiction, something that can be as detrimental to someone’s life as any other addiction. An addiction is anything that interrupts or is damaging to your life. I have created a list of some behaviors that might suggest you are suffering from a pornography addiction.

Watching porn together can be a fun way to spice up a dulling sex life. But if you can’t play without pressing play, this could be indicative of an addiction, and your partner is probably really offended.

If you shift your partner mid-position to get a better view of the Jugs video that plays in the background every time you have sex, you might have a problem. To see this move in action, please refer to Season 2 Episode 6 of “Sex and the City”: “The Cheating Curve.”

If you have ever, even if only once, told your friend that you were staying home to hang out with “the girls” (gone wild), I encourage you from the bottom of my heart to seek help.

A pornography addiction sounds almost comical. I mean thirsty people still want to make it rain one way or another even if there’s no clouds in sight, so is it really so wrong turn on the garden house yourself? Even if it’s once or twice a day? To be perfectly honest, I watch porn every time my roommate is out and I’m not in class, which happens to work out to Thursday from 230-5 but I would do it every day if I could.

So does that count as pornography addiction? Maybe. Although I’m a little biased for this particular situation, I venture my opinion and say it isn’t because it doesn’t interfere with my non-existent sex life. But if your porn-watching habits start to create any kind of issues outside of your computer monitor, think about treatment. I promise you it’s really embarrassing being the person on the other side of the porn addiction. It makes you really question your own addiction to that chocolate fudge layer cake.

  1. I don’t see the reason for the “liberal feminist” comment because porn DOES give people unrealistic expectations for sex, has the potential to contribute to normalized sexual violence, and shouldn’t really be used as a model for how to do the do. Like, I love porn and I’m a feminist. The two aren’t mutually exclusive, these aren’t the sex wars of the 70s. But, you know, whatever gets you readers.
