Porn Addiction Quiz

http://www.helpfreetheearth.com

May, 2015

Dr. Victor Cline says that sex and pornography can be a more difficult addiction to break than cocaine.

Not everyone who sees porn will become addicted to it. Some will just come away with toxic ideas about women, sex, marriage and children. That kind of damage is bad enough. And porn isn't the only ingredient in addiction. Usually, those who become addicted have some kind of emotional opening that allows the addiction to really take root.

The porn companies want you to become addicted to their product and CUM back for more. You don't have to take drugs to get addicted to porn — your body makes its own drugs (dopamine) just by looking at the pictures.

Five Stages of Addiction

  1. Early exposure. Most guys who get addicted to porn start early. They see the stuff when they are very young, and it gets its foot in the door.
  2. Addiction. Later comes addiction. You keep coming back to porn. It becomes a regular part of your life. You're hooked. You can't quit.
  3. Escalation. After a while, escalation begins. You start to look for more and more graphic porn. You start using porn that would have disgusted you when you started. Now it excites you.
  4. Desensitization. Eventually, you start to become numb. Even the most graphic, degrading porn doesn't excite you anymore. You become desperate to feel the same thrill again but can't find it.
  5. Acting out sexually. At this point, many men make a dangerous jump and start acting out sexually. They move from the paper and plastic images of porn to the real world.

An addict may start fantasizing about what it would be like to actually rape a woman. Qith just a little push, spme addicts rape then killed her to cover their tracks. Serial rapist-killer Ted Bundy got started with a porn addiction and when that wasn't enough, he tried the real thing — rape, and then murder. When he succeeded, he did it again. And again.

If you see any of the patterns, if porn is beginning to control your life, you need to put the brakes on right now. Perhaps you find yourself needing to see increasingly graphic pornography. You're masturbating more and more often. You're starting to take "acting out" risks and you believe the lies.

BELIEVING THE LIES

Lie: Women are less than human. The women in Playboy magazine are called "bunnies," making them cute little animals or "playmates," making them a toy. Porn often refers to women as animals, playthings, or body parts. Some pornography shows only the body and doesn’t show the face at all. The idea that women are real human beings with thoughts and emotions is played down.

Lie: Women are a "sport." Some sports magazines have a swimsuit issue. This suggests that women are just some kind of sport. Porn views sex as a game and in a game: You have to win, conquer or score.

Lie: Women are property. It's common to see pictures of the slick car with the sexy girl draped over it. The unspoken message is, "Buy one, and you get them both." Hard-core porn carries this even further. It displays women like merchandise in a catalogue, exposing them as openly as possible for the customer to look at. It's not surprising that many young men think that if they have spent some money taking a girl out, they have a right to have sex with her. Porn tells us that women can be bought.

Lie: A woman's value depends on the attractiveness of her body. Overweight or less attractive women are ridiculed in porn. They are called dogs, whales, pigs or worse, simply because they don't fit into porn's criteria of the perfect woman. In fact, if someone is attracted to a heavyset woman, porn labels that a fetish, which means sexual obsession or hang-up that isn't "natural." Porn doesn’t care about a woman's mind or personality, only her body

Lie: Women like rape. "When she says no, she means yes" is a typical porn scenario. Women are shown being raped, fighting and kicking at first, and then starting to like it. Porn eroticizes rape and makes it arousing. Women are shown being tied up, beaten, and humiliated in hundreds of sick ways and finally begging for more. Even while being tortured, the porn actors and actresses have a smile on their face — a look of intense enjoyment. Porn teaches men to enjoy hurting and abusing women for entertainment.

SCORE

Under 8 – You’re probably not a porn addict. But if you have a family history of addiction, you could still be considered ‘at risk.’ Make sure you have sexual experiences that are porn-free and develop a range of strategies for coping with stress and boredom. If you feel your porn usage is creeping up, cut back for a while so your dopamine levels can re-calibrate. Dopamine is the pleasure chemical that's released when people view porn (or have sex, eat food, etc.), but the more you release it, the more you need to get the same buzz. That's why people with porn addiction find their behaviors escalate to spending more and more time online and/or watching harder and harder core porn. Like alcohol, cutting back or quitting for a while will lower your tolerance again.”

9- 15 – Your porn habit is bordering on being “problematic”—so use this as a time to get a grip! Cut back a bit. Hall explains “porn is often the easy solution to dealing with life problems, but remember that it often causes the very problems that you’re trying to escape. If you’re having issues with your asshole boss or your high-maintenance girlfriend, try facing them head on.

16-20 –You almost definitely have a porn addiction and it’s likely that you’ve struggled for quite some time to stop it. If you’re already noticing that porn is having a negative impact on your life, your relationships or your sexual functioning now is the time to do something about it. Seek out a 12-step group like Sex Addicts Anonymous or make an appointment to see a sex addiction therapist.

20+ - If you’ve scored over 20 and haven’t tried to get help yet, please do so today. Like many people with a serious addiction, you probably don’t even enjoy porn any more but for some reason, you just can’t explain why you feel driven to it. What started as a pleasurable pastime, turned into a habit and then into a curse. At this point, your addiction is likely robbing you of reaching your goals and enjoying partnered sex. This is a problem you can beat and the sooner you take action the sooner you can get on with your life.
