Recently a case was reported in Telangana, where 5 students of classes 9 and 10 were apprehended by police for sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl, who happened to be their classmate. They raped the girl, recorded the act, and shared it on WhatsApp. The accused, it was reported, were addicted to porn and blamed their addiction for their crimes. This kind of sexual violence has been on the rise and one commonality in most of these cases is that the accused used to watch porn regularly. This connection causes many to believe that porn addiction might be the root cause of this increasing trend of sexual violence in people of all ages. 

But what does porn addiction even mean?

Even though it isn’t technically mentioned in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, porn addiction is a type of sex addiction and has become extremely common these days. Porn addiction is a controversial term, but in day-to-day reference, it means that a person becomes emotionally dependent on pornography to the point that it interferes with their daily life, relationships, and ability to function. It means excessively frequent and habitual consumption of pornography. It is very harmful to the person’s emotional and mental health.

What Are The Common Effects Of Porn Addiction?

1. Makes You Pull Away Emotionally

People addicted to porn tend to be more secretive and may even fall into depressive states. This affects their intimacy with their partners and their own mental health. They end up pulling away from everything and everyone in the long run. 

2. Ever-Changing Sexual Preferences

If you are constantly watching perfect bodies, wild scenarios and professional sex, then your preferences might even alter towards these fantastical ideas. The kind of porn you view can affect your preference in real life and keep altering your sexual preferences. 

3. Affects Daily Functioning

You might spend more time watching porn than anything else. You might even neglect your work or daily needs for another hit of dopamine watching pornography. This can definitely hurt you in the long run. 

4. Creates A Violent Streak

Most porn videos are male-dominated, where the female is just a timid character for the man to ravish according to his will. Watching these kinds of videos constantly can make a person more violent. This can show up in various ways in life including abuse and rape. 

These common but very harmful effects of porn addiction can be the root cause of increasing sexual assault, and sexual molestation cases, not just in India, but worldwide. While it’s good to explore your body and desires with the help of porn but anything in excess or extreme is never good. So, can we control this addiction? 

Can Porn Addiction Be Controlled?

Yes, porn addiction is both controllable and curable. To counter this addiction, firstly the person will have to reduce their porn consumption by limiting their access to it and can even ask someone to keep a check on them. It can also be treated like any other addiction by meditation, therapy or counselling sessions, joining support groups and can even use medically prescribed medication.

It is important to control its consumption, especially by children. This case is an example of many such cases of adolescents not being able to control their urges and becoming sexually violent. It’s the responsibility of the parents, government, Internet companies and even pornographic websites and companies to make sure their content isn’t easily accessible to all.

It’s important for us as a society to make everyone aware of the harmful effects of porn addiction and provide the youth with good sex education to help them understand their bodies, desires and how to control them. Let’s help the children to grow up into respecting humans and not savages.
