Dear TeenHealthFX,

Dear Porn Every Day,

It is not an issue of pornography and masturbation itself. Like any addiction you want to look at the impact it has on your life, including the amount of time you spend doing it or thinking about doing it. 

Porn addiction has become more and more of a problem through the years, especially now that it’s so easy to access through the internet. Excessive use of pornography can be problematic for several reasons. Some people put so much time and energy into searching for and looking at porn, that it gets in the way of other areas in their lives, such as school, work or spending time with friends or family. Excessive use of porn can also alter in a negative way a person’s views and expectations of how sex and dating relationships should be. For some people who deal with depression or have significant difficulty coping with stress, excessive use of porn may be used as a type of escape or way to try and temporarily feel better. 

Check out TeenHealthFX’s response to “Can Porn Be Harmful.” There are a number of questions raised that you can answer for yourself. This will give you more insight into whether this is a problem for you. 

You can also do a personal test. Make an agreement with yourself that you will abstain fro porn and masturbating for 2-4 weeks. If you can do it without much thought you probably okay.

If you can make it that long or it takes a lot of willpower then it is having a greater influence in your life then you would want.
