Sexual Intimacy and Pornography Addiction

As pornography becomes more acceptable and pervasive in society, sexual intimacy in relationships is suffering. Since the rapid pornography growth has been recent, there is little research done on improving sexual intimacy for couples who are trying to recover from a pornography addiction. However, there is a clear link between pornography addiction and damaged sexual intimacy. Also, there is a clear link between relationship satisfaction and satisfaction with sexual intimacy in the relationship. After studying the effects of pornography addiction and combining it with useful sex therapy techniques, a therapeutic approach is offered for couples suffering from pornography addiction.
