Why Are Men Addicted to Porn

Why are men addicted to porn? This is an age-old question that has been around pretty much since porn addiction came to be known as a possibility. There are many reasons – far too many to list here – but here are just a few of them.

Why are men addicted to porn? Here’s one answer: Because the male brain wants it.

Men think about sex. That’s just a cold, hard fact. Men think about sex far more than women do, and though porn isn’t sex, using porn does trigger powerful sex-like hormones and chemicals in the male brain. Those feel good and convince men, for a moment, that they are fulfilling their instinctual desire to reproduce.

Why are men addicted to porn? Here’s another answer: Because men are visual in nature.

Men are also incredibly visual in nature. Men like to look in general, and in specifics, men like to look at women. It’s just in their blood, and so pornography helps fulfill that urge.

Why are men addicted to porn? Here’s a final answer: Because some men are using porn to cover up a deeper hurt.

While many men get addicted to porn because of their minds, some other men use porn to mask a deeper hurt that exists in their soul. These kinds of porn addictions are more difficult to overcome but can still be eradicated with the right kind of treatment.
