Are you concerned you have a porn addiction or possibly developing a dependency on viewing adult content? According to Addiction Center, the top 10 signs of porn addiction include:

  • Unable to stop viewing despite your efforts
  • A feeling or craving to view it more and more
  • Losing large amounts of time in order to watch porn
  • Losing interest in real sex, or needing extra stimulation for arousal
  • Developing unrealistic expectations or demands about sex
  • Losing attraction in your partner
  • Physical pain related to viewing porn, often with the wrist, neck or back
  • Loss of money, as some people with a porn addiction spend large amounts of money on content they consider a higher quality
  • Feeling distracted at work or with family and friends
  • Easily angered during periods when not watching porn
