Study: ‘Porn Addiction’ Does Not Exist

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (CBS Las Vegas) – The findings of a recent study suggest that the phenomenon known by some as “porn addiction” does not actually exist.

Researchers led by clinical psychologist David Ley of New Mexico Solutions, a behavioral health program in Albuquerque, examined existing data on what they referred to as the “pornography addiction model.”

In all, they found that only 27 percent of articles on porn addiction contained clinical statistics and data, and only one psycho-physiological study was conducted on the matter in the past year.

Additionally, less than two out of five articles that examined frequent sexual behavior referred to it as an addiction, UPI is reporting.

Ley and his team also examined the reported side effects of pornography addiction – such as alterations in brain function or erectile dysfunction – and found little merit to these claims.

Those involved in the study were, in fact, said to have found positive associations with the consumption of pornography, including increased pleasure in long-term relationships.

The study was published in the journal Current Sexual Health Reports.
