Use of Pornography

28 Dec

It is not clear whether pornography can become an actual addiction or a compulsion. However, its use is pervasive. International studies estimate that 50% to 99% of men and 30 to 86% of women access it. The Kinsey Institute found that 72% of the respondents to its 2002 survey thought it harmless. But it can become a problem. However, it is uncertain if it is a cause or effect of other problems, especially marital. (Weir, K. Is pornography addictive? Monitor on Psychology, 2014, 45(4), 46-50)
