Addicted to Internet Porn

When he'd rather surf porn sites than have sex with you

In moderation and in the hands of intelligent and emotionally mature men, Internet porn—even porn in general—is relatively harmless. So my first piece of advice is not to panic. There are many reasons why it's appealing to men, and it's not usually as evil as you might imagine.

In fact, you may even enjoy it yourself. A girlfriend of mine recently found some Internet porn on her husband's computer and left a furious message on his voicemail. She then browsed through it and ended up becoming massively turned on by the lipstick lesbian section of the Web site. She followed up the angry message with a "For goodness sake, hurry up and come home: That porn has me really turned on!" one. Internet porn is now her own number one masturbation tool.

Internet Sex vs. Sex with You

THE PROS

He can have it any time he likes. It's ready and waiting whenever he wants it. You, my dear, are far less predictable. Not only does he have to negotiate periods, PMS and fat days, he has to wait until you're in the right mood.
