Addiction to pornography is a growing epidemic in our country and around the world. These alarming statistics have only gotten worse over the last decade:

  • Pornography is very prevalent in our society, and porn addiction affects about 5-8% of adults.
  • People addicted to porn spend at least 11 to 12 hours per week viewing porn.
  • Most people who have a porn addiction say that porn hurts their personal relationships.
  • Many conditions co-occur with porn addiction, including anxiety, depression, sex addiction, social anxiety and substance use disorders.
