It’s estimated that 200,000 American adults are addicted to pornography — defined as “a person becoming emotionally dependent on pornography to the point that it interferes with their daily life, relationships, and ability to function.”
Some 40 million people visit porn sites on line on a regular basis and that includes both women and men. Thirty-five percent of all internet downloads are related to porn.
