Internet Porn Addiction has some very specific characteristics. It is not about the type of porn being viewed, but more about the frequency of viewing, and the compulsion to access the material and subsequently stay on line, often for hours at a time. Individuals report an inability to self-regulate the behaviour despite repeatedly feeling regret at the amount of time ‘lost’. There have often been many attempts to stop, and clients often report feelings of low-self esteem, low mood/depression, social isolation and negative impacts upon work and intimate relationships as a result. More often than not the compulsive behaviour has escalated and has been increasingly difficult to hide from loved ones. The effect on Partners, once discovered, is devastating.
