‏Is My Husband Addicted to Porn?‏

Pornography is a ‏ ‏frequently debated topic ‏, and there has been a lot of discussion about whether or not someone can be addicted to porn. Some addiction experts suspect that porn inherently isn’t damaging, but it has the potential to severely affect someone’s personal life if they consume too much of it. The ‏ American Psychological Association ‏ notes that some opponents “believe that porn ruins marriages, leads to sexual addiction or other unhealthy behaviors, and encourages sexual aggression.”‏

‏Experts strongly believe that these damaging behaviors can cause problems in an otherwise healthy marriage. While both men and women can become addicted to porn, men are more prone to porn addiction. If you suspect your husband watches porn, you should look for some warning signs. ‏

 

Is He Watching Porn?‏

‏First, it’s a good idea to know if he is consuming porn in general. If your husband watches porn, it is likely he will do one of two things. He may tell you about it openly, since watching porn is widely common. Alternatively, he may hide it from you if he knows you don’t approve of it. ‏

 

‏Erectile Dysfunction‏

‏Is your husband addicted to porn? Whether he tells you or not, there are some telltale signs of porn addiction, and it’s understandable to be concerned about it. One sign of a porn addiction is erectile dysfunction in your husband. If your husband is addicted to porn, he may have trouble being stimulated and aroused by his “real life” partner, and he may not be able to feel aroused unless he is performing the sexual acts he sees on the internet. ‏

 

‏He Seems Distant‏

‏Yet another clear sign your husband is addicted to pornography is when you feel like he has withdrawn from your relationship. This may be caused by your husband developing ‏ ‏unrealistic ideals of beauty‏ ‏ from consuming too much porn. He may withdraw from spending time with you, being intimate, and showing affection, although he may not intentionally do this. ‏

 

Risky Behavior‏

‏Your husband’s addiction may be entering dangerous territory if he is engaging in risky behavior to satisfy the addiction. Your husband may attempt to ‏ ‏watch porn at work‏ ‏ or in other scenarios where it is highly inappropriate. He may enjoy the risk, or is simply not thinking about the repercussions of getting caught. ‏

 

You’re Noticing Personality Changes and Mood Swings‏

‏You should pay close attention to any personality changes in your husband. An addiction, no matter what it is, can cause mood swings and emotional instability. Porn provides instant gratification and is easily accessible on the internet, and your husband may start feeling frustrated and volatile when other aspects of his life aren’t as easily available. ‏

 

He’s Been Sexually Aggressive‏

‏If your husband is experiencing erectile dysfunction, yet it seems like he is aroused by acting aggressively towards you in the bedroom, there is a chance he has a porn addiction. Overconsumption of porn can cause men to have dangerous views towards women. He may misconstrue porn with reality and forget porn acts are unrealistic, staged and dangerous to women who don’t consent.‏

 

You Notice Financial Problems‏

‏Have you noticed that your combined income has been affected recently? If your husband has a porn addiction, he may get bored with watching videos and feel like he needs to spend money on interacting with other women online, specifically women that will fulfil his pornographic fantasies. He may also spend money on niche porn that is harder to attain or pornographic virtual reality games.‏

 

He’s Disrespectful Towards You‏

‏Let’s be honest, while some actors are consenting to perform sexual acts, ‏ ‏porn frequently demeans women‏ ‏. Many pornographic videos promote violence towards women by promoting it as a fantasy. Some of the most popular videos on Pornhub depict women as being humiliated, coerced, or being raped while sleeping. ‏

‏Men who consume porn brush this off as something they would “never actually do” to someone in real life. Be that as it may, you may notice your husband seems a little disrespectful towards you lately. If he’s been rude, demeaning, and treating you poorly, his view towards women may have changed by watching porn excessively. ‏

 

‏You Feel Insecure‏

‏Do you feel like you’re not sexually desirable? Do you feel less confident than you used to? If so, you should avoid beating yourself up and realize that it may be stemming from your husband’s porn addiction. ‏

‏Porn can undoubtedly ‏ ‏alter your self-image.  The porn industry often photoshops and drastically alter images of women to make their body shapes unrealistic and disingenuous. What’s more, a ‏ ‏study conducted in 2019‏ ‏ proved that in heterosexual couples, excessive porn consumption by the man has been proven to increase the risk of eating disorders in their female partners. ‏

 

My Husband is Addicted to Porn. What Should I Do?‏

‏If you think your husband’s erectile dysfunction and other behaviors are due to porn addiction, you should talk to him about how you feel. Many wives struggle with a husband addicted to porn. There are support groups for porn and sex addicts, and therapy or counseling services may help him. If he values you as a partner, he will consider your feelings and make changes. If he dismisses you, it may be time to rethink your relationship.‏
