Do You Have a Porn or Cybersex Problem That’s Getting Out of Control?


Do you have a Problem with Internet Pornography?

  1. Do you find yourself spending increasing amounts of time online looking at pornography or engaged in sexual or romantic intrigue?
  2. Do you become involved in multiple romantic or sexual affairs online at the same time?
  3. Being truly honest with yourself, do you think pornography use or online sexual activity violates your marital commitments?
  4. Have you been unable to cut back on the frequency of your online sexual involvement despite a thought that you should do so?
  5. Have you been unable to “stay away” from sexual materials, sites, or interactions that have made you uncomfortable or worried about yourself when you previously viewed them?
  6. Does online porn use interfere with home life, work or school (such as making you tired because of the previous night’s use?
  7. Does pornography use intrude on relationships that are important to you?  Have you experienced a decrease in your intimate sexual life?
  8. Do you collect pornography, keeping hundreds of videos or images stored in your computer?
  9. Do you engage in online fantasy acts  or view other porn depicing illegal or violating sexual acts such as rape, bestiality or child porn?
  10. Has the time you spent interacting with friends, family and loved ones decreased because of your porn use or fantasy involvement?
  11. Do you lie or keep secrets about the amount of time you spend interacting with porn, the type of porn you view, or the types of activities you engage in online?
  12. Do you have sex – either in online fantasy, or in person – with someone other than your partner?
  13. Do you become irritable, angry, or extremely ashamed when asked to give up porn involvement to engage with partners, family, or friends?
  14. Has the primary focus of your sexual or romantic life become increasingly related to images found in magazines, videos, or Internet activity?

If you are excessively involved in any one of these areas, or has had problematic consequences as a result of any one of these, it can be a clear sign of your need for porn addiction treatment.

Involvement with illegal online sexual activity is always a problem and should be brought up with a sex addiction therapist who is skilled with these issues.

People who said yes to one to three of the symptoms should openly discuss their concerns with a sex addiction counselor. More than three positive answers indicate the need form more professional support of counseling.
