By design, online pornography is meant to be highly titillating to visitors. It’s easy to recognize why porn poses a significant risk of addiction as it induces a state of hyper-stimulation, provides constant novelty, is highly accessible, most of the time costs nothing, and can be used in the privacy of one’s home. Online porn is so stimulating, it can make existing sexual relationships seem deficient when compared which can affect the quality of porn addicts’ relationships and lives.
