Recognizing Signs of Unhealthy Porn Consumption

When it comes to sexual wellness, discussions around the impact of porn often stir controversy and backlash. This is exactly why expert Sandy Brown, felt the need to shed light on recognizing when a seemingly harmless indulgence turns into a potential addiction. 

Brown, author of "Porn Addict's Wife: Surviving Betrayal and Taking Back Your Life," outlines ten signs that may indicate an unhealthy relationship with adult content. While stressing that occasional viewing is not a cause for concern, Brown gets into the nitty gritty details of the common behaviors of porn addicts.

She states that changes in sexual preference, diminished interest in real-life intimacy, a change in sexual performance, and emotionally distant behavior might signal potential issues. Other signs include; being defensive and secretive, becoming anti-social, being more critical of your partners appearance, protecting your devices, staying up late to indulge, and over-spending on adult content.

As individuals try to maintain their new years resolutions, Brown's insights provide a sex-positive perspective on understanding and addressing problematic porn consumption.
