Multiple studies show that at least 80% of people with compulsive sexual behaviour report excessive internet pornography use. For a growing number of people bingeing on porn can have a negative effect on health, behaviour, relationships, attainment, productivity and criminality. It is specifically designed to change thoughts and behaviour at an unconscious level and can lead to compulsive sexual behaviour disorder.
Children are particularly vulnerable to its effects. It does not model trust and intimacy but rather promotes coercion, violence and unsafe sex. We report on the benefits of quitting porn based on the latest research and stories from those who have experimented with it. Tune in to this young guy’s story.
The Reward Foundation is a pioneering educational charity that makes the research behind love, sex and internet pornography accessible to a wide public. We have been accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners to run 1-day training workshops on the impact of internet pornography on mental and physical health for professionals of all kinds. We do talks in schools and produce lesson plans for teachers. We also help organisations understand its impact in the community or workplace.
Research shows that long-term, sexual love with a real partner is the best basis for health, wealth and fulfilment. We are not out to ban porn, but help people make ‘informed’ choices about its use in order to improve their chances of enjoying successful loving relationships. Here is a self-assessment exercise. The Reward Foundation does not offer therapy nor provide legal advice but we do signpost routes to recovery for men and women whose use has become problematic.
