Porn Addiction Statistics

Posted on by Dr. Kevin Skinner

Here’s a question that I received, “Do you have any porn addiction statistics you can give me? I am working on a class project and would like more information.

Answer: During the past few years I have been gathering data from individuals who are trapped in pornography. I think the following statistics are very important as they describe the powerful negative effect that pornography is having on individuals.

These statistics come from my data sample of more than 4000 men. They filled out the online assessment at www.growthclimate.com

Here’s what 4000 men report.

I keep it a secret:

  • 75% say that they do everything they can to hide the pornography they view from the people around them.”

Frequency:

  • 53% say that they view pornography 3-5 times a week or more.”

I can’t stop:

  • 76% report that they have told themself that they are going to stop viewing pornography only to find that they are viewing it again.”

I skip activities I generally enjoy:

  • 36% report that they have skipped activities that they generally like so they could be by themself and view porn.”

Always on my mind:

  • 47% report that they can’t stop the fantasies that run through their mind.
  • 43% say they don’t like the types of thoughts I have about women/men because of their involvement with porn.

How do does porn influence their relationships?

Pull back from relationships:

  • 47% report that they have distanced myself from my partner when I have looked at pornography.
  • 40% say they have chosen to view pornography, rather than be sexually intimate with my partner.

Risky behavior:

  • 34% have viewed pornography from a work computer.

I would be interested on your feedback on these statistics. What do they mean to you? For me personally, I believe that pornography is creating a lot of chaos in our society. Individuals who are trapped in it are really struggling. Their lives have been changed drastically by pornography. Their relationships are being hurt. They struggle to find and feel peace.

Fortunately, there are solutions. It has been my experience that individuals who put in the effort make great progress. They need more information, good support, and an excellent game plan.

    I have finally left my porn addicted partner to move on with my life, build a website and write a book which is nearing completion. I’ve also started interviewing people in all areas to help others dealing with this problem. Check my website out at dontrewardbadbehaviour com for a humorous look at being in a very painful position – loving a man who loves porn more than he loves you.
    Would like to interview you if you are interested. Lindsay
