Pornography Addiction Treatment – For Women
Do You Think You Might Be Addicted To Porn?
You are not alone.
“I knew I wanted to stop. Porn was taking over my life. I had this secret and if anyone found out it was all over. How could I look at the people I cared about? My husband would leave me, and how could I look at my children? If they knew this dark side of me, the shame and guilt would overtake me. This is a man’s problem, so why am I struggling with it? Women don’t struggle with porn.”
These are often some of the conversations we have with women who are struggling with pornography.
The first thing to know is that this is not just a man’s problem. Women can become addicted to pornography as well.
The internet has made pornography easily available. Young women are starting to look at porn around the age of 13-17. These are the years our brains are making some big changes and internet pornography can impact that development.
In one recent German study, porn use among college-age students showed that 17% of the woman asked stated they struggled porn use.
After some time, your brain can become addicted. It becomes a way to deal with the stress, anxiety and loneliness of life. When a woman consistently watches porn depression can become part of the whole process.

You Have Found Help.
“Women porn addicts flourish in counseling and therapy, finally being able to articulate the metaphorical prison that they have been in because of their addiction. Specifically, women gain strength and courage from exploring their thoughts and feelings in counseling. Women are finally able to share thoughts, feelings and beliefs that have been suppressed for a long time.”
–Julia Breyer, MSW, ACSW, Sex and Porn Addiction Counselor
