Can I be ‘cured’ of my ‘porn addiction’? Belle de Jour goes on the hunt – Telegraph

Porn addiction: we’ve all heard about it, but have you ever considered what you might do if you thought you had it? Dr Brooke Magnanti tries to get ‘cured’ for Telegraph Wonder Women

Kevin Friery‘s insight:

I like Brooke Magnanti – I think she often talks a lot of sense and she opens conversations that others shy away from.  I fundamentally disagree with her about porn addiction, though.  The examples she cites are not remotely what I would call ‘porn addiction’ and I have seen a number of clients for whom porn addiction is a real and serious problem.  You might argue about the label – is it Compulsive Behaviour? Is it Addiction? – but the impact on daily living experience is severe and disabling for some.  There simply are some people out there who cannot function without watching or reading a significant amount of porn every day to the extent that they can’t live a ‘normal’ life.  This isn’t about teenage masturbatory fantasies – it is a real adult problem.
