Show notes

Some red flags of porn addiction are more obvious than others. It makes sense why many husbands become hyper sexual as a result of their porn usage, putting pressure on their wives to have more frequent sex, or to undertake sex acts that make their wives feel uncomfortable. But, actually, about half of porn addicts avoid their wives sexually. This has nothing to do with the attractiveness or sexual performance of the wife. 

If you husband is being sneaky or defensive about his use of technology, stays up late, wipes his computer history, or has unaccounted for periods of time, these are all potential red flags. 

Behavioral red flags include husbands being critical, distant, unavailable, resentful and withdrawn. The symptoms of 'arousal addiction' often mimic symptoms of ADHD, OCD, Depression, Performance anxiety, social anxiety.
