Internet porn

Over the past 5 years, there has been an explosive increase in the number of pornographic Internet resources, and now the Internet is the main source of such materials anywhere in the world. One of my porn addicted patients said that the Internet best meets the needs of porn addicted people with three benefits: accessibility, cheapness, anonymity.



I saw boys who were barely 13 and for whom getting into this trap ended very badly. According to them, they regularly search for pornography on the Internet, scoring “sex”, “naked women”, “wet pussy porn”, etc. in the search lines. Having found the desired resource, they return to it again and again, like drug addicts.


Albert Cooper, a researcher at the University of West Coast, in his article for the Journal of Sexual Addiction and Obsession, calls it “addiction to cybersex.” He writes that people with such an addiction turn into drug addicts and can no longer refuse the Internet, because this is an important part of their sexuality. This is their “favorite drug”, which often destroys the family atmosphere, deprives them of their livelihood.



Mark Schwartz of the Masters and Johnson Institute in St. Louis writes that “sex on the net takes people and lives like heroin. And it’s very difficult to treat this addiction, because patients don’t want to give it up. ” “Cyber-sex addicts are so passionate about their virtual lives that they no longer pay attention to babes and children, and run the risk of losing their jobs.”



Another researcher (Putnam) (Putnam) noted that some addicts develop a conditioned reflex to the computer, they are excited by the very thought of him. “You can sit down at the computer to work, and this is already enough to bring excitement that facilitates further sexual activity. As with other addictions, cybersex is gradually getting used to, and the addict needs more sophisticated forms of sexual activity in order to achieve the initial effect ”(New York Times, May 16, 2000, block F7).



Doctor Jennifer Schneider from Tucson Arizona conducted a survey among 94 family members who were addicted to cybersex. She found that even a successful marriage, in which there is every opportunity for healthy sex, is not immune from such a problem. “Sex on the net is addictive, it’s very easy to stumble upon such sites, and vulnerable people fall into the hook without even realizing it.”



She also noted that cybersex in terms of damage is comparable to gambling, alcohol or drug addiction. Even stable, time-tested relationships run the risk of being destroyed if one of the partners develops a harmful addiction. Spouses / partners of addicted people felt that they had been betrayed, devalued, deceived, abandoned, disregarded, and they were unable to compete with fantastic images. Among the participants in the study was a 34-year-old woman who had been married to her husband for 14 years. Commenting on her husband’s addiction to finding satisfaction on porn sites, she said: “How can I surpass the hundreds of imaginary strangers who are now sharing our bed with us. There are crowds of strangers in it now, and once we were the only two there ”(The New York Times, May 16, 2000, block F7).


Local laws governing obscene behavior are unable to solve the problem that exists both nationally and internationally. At the same time, the proper implementation of federal obscene laws (US code, chapter 18, paragraphs 1462, 1465) would reduce the amount of Internet pornography, because now the United States is its main producer. Control over the implementation of these laws is not carried out; in most cases, no one bothers with the distribution of heavy porno (without the participation of children) on the territory of the United States. There are no agreements prohibiting the distribution of pornography, and at the international level.

Installing filters will help reduce the level of accessibility of porn sites for children and adolescents, but you need to understand that no filter is a 100% guarantee. The advanced user, having shown persistence, will almost always find a way to circumvent protection. Parents can resort to using filters as one of the protection measures, but at the same time they should keep the family computer in a common room in order to be able to see which sites the child is visiting.



Of course, very few parents can monitor what the child is doing 24 hours a day, especially when it comes to teens. Laws should be enacted to restrict children’s access to porn sites. This will help parents protect their children from contact with these harmful addictive materials.



Almost all libraries in the United States provide readers with computers with Internet access, but refuse to set filters to protect young children from pornographic resources. Any 7-year-old child can see pathologically explicit sexual material filmed on the other side of the world. Already there are cases
