The truth is very different but when all your information about women comes from the men oriented sex industry then that is what you subconsciously learn. If you do admit you have a problem with porn or you know someone who does do some research into what women think about sex and men in today’s world, go to women’s sites and get informed about the truth of the matter. Not only will this expand your world view it may counteract some of the damage that too much porn may have done to your view about the opposite sex and this in turn can really turn you off porn as an outlet for sexual desire when you see the damage it can do.

This is because at its core this sort of addiction is a psychological issue caused by some factors in a person life that vary from person to person but most commonly occur from poor self esteem or an ingrained low opinion of women from other sources. Unfortunately there is no easy cookie cutter method to eliminate porn addiction from a person because everyone’s issues are so different so a personalized approach targeting the root causes of why you came to have the addiction is the only real way to get results.
