Porn Addiction Stats - Pornography Addiction Statistics,
Percentages, Numbers, & Info

Internet Pornography Addiction and Online Sex Addiction are not official diagnoses in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

However, there is no question that overuse or misuse of pornography is a real problem for some individuals - both men and women alike.

Lacking official criteria, for now, whether someone is addicted to porn is somewhat of a judgment call. This makes providing exact statistics on pornography addiction a bit challenging.

For practical purposes, someone may be considered to have a problem with pornography if he/she spends an excessive amount of time viewing, collecting, and/or downloading porn - and it has a significant negative impact on other areas of his or her life (for example, work, school, health, and/or interpersonal relationships).
