Teen Porn Addiction on the Rise: MyFoxPHOENIX.com

PHOENIX – Sex addiction can take many forms.

For many, it starts by a simple click of a mouse on the computer.

Online pornography is now one of the easiest ways to develop an addiction and there’s something troubling doctors: more and more teens are becoming addicted, partly because of cell phones.

With iPhones and Androids, accessing the internet no longer has to take place at home. Pornographic sites are available anywhere anytime.

He started as a teenager, before smartphones — but he fully understands how this technology has ramped up the numbers of those addicted.

“Basically, it started by being on my computer going through pictures of people going through just sites,” he said. “Really what it boils down to is loneliness and boredom and not willing to go out and seek friendships.”

“It’s baffling how many sites there are..you think you hit the end and there’s more..all you have to do is close your eyes for an hour and there’s four new sites.”

“Really, you don’t need anything but a computer and now you don’t even need a computer, you just need a cell phone..it seems like pretty common practice today.”

“It built up on a daily basis to the point when I would not want to do anything else and really it just gets to the point when it’s not even fun like any other addiction, it just becomes something you do..you feel like a robot you don’t know why you do it, you don’t want to do it..it’s what you go to.”

“If you can keep clicking..see stuff and keep clicking and clicking and have an endless supply, it’s like..if I had a pile of coke that kept building up, I wouldn’t go anywhere, do anything, just keep scraping rails off.”

“When you are on the computer, you aren’t looking for that relationship, even though you are lonely and sad you are looking to not feel like yourself…prostitution strip clubs..easiest way you can..go in you don’t have to be you or anything, but you want to be at the moment. I had no problem going in lying who I was, what I did.”

“It really ruins the feelings of friendship of love of having a good relationship. Taking away with the communication with someone because you are probably lying about you know, wanting to be with them or being with them because hell, you can go right in front of the computer and do it yourself.”

“The feeling of not caring about anything but that and that doesn’t even make you happy..the feeling that knowing it’s stupid and you’re not gaining or helping anything really..you are just hurting a lot of people.”

“Talking about sex addiction..it’s something that’s not out there, I don’t know how many of us out there..there’s a lot more than are willing to speak about it.”
