10 Best Videos on Porn Addiction 

Porn addiction has become synonymous with the internet. Easy access to porn has only increased its exposure. There is so much social stigma when talking about porn addiction. This is exactly why it is difficult for people to admit they have a problem and even seek help. 

Porn addiction is barely talked about but it is so common! People may even consider it a normal part of life. But research shows that excessive porn use has detrimental effects. It can cause depression, social anxiety, isolation, and even financial problems.  

A constant novelty that is found in porn can lead people to watch more stimulating and violent porn over time. This can alter your thought processes and even your behavior! 

Porn addiction is so resistant because it is dealt with privately. There are no obvious and observable consequences to it. Adding to the problem, people refuse to talk about such an important issue that is even affecting teenagers. 

Why do so many people still seek porn and are addicted to this behaviour. Find out by checking out the 10 best videos on porn addiction. 

#1 Escaping porn addiction – Eli Nash TEDx Talks

The TED in TEDx stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. It is a non-profit organization used to spread well researched ideas. TED Talks are independently organized events that are used to spread ideas globally, whereas TEDx Talks are aimed at a more local audience. Nonetheless, the focus is on sharing ground breaking ideas in science and other fields. 

Eli Nash talks about the shame and stigma he felt from others when he started openly talking about his addiction. 

Often times we picture a person with addiction as someone who is down bad and has barely anything to live for. This video shows us that sometimes porn addiction can be a secret that is ruining lives in private. 

He talks about sexual abuse and all the things that lead him to porn. Porn ended up being an escape for him, until one day when he was forced into a situation where he had to face his addiction.

#2 Dopamine Fasting 2.0 – Overcome Addiction & Restore Motivation – After Skool

This video is a collaboration between the YouTube channel ‘One Percent Better’ run by Brandon Nankivell and ‘After Skool’.

On average people spend about 3 hours a day on their smartphones, this compounds to about 1095 hours every year! Studies have proven that dopamine has been linked with the feeling of being rewarded and it heavily plays a role in addiction.

The world runs on super stimuli; brightly coloured images and an overload of food additives cause a dopamine surge that is similar to drug use. 

In this video Brandon talks about Dopamine Fasting. It is a practice in which all heavily dopamine stimulating activities are avoided for extended periods of time to reset your mind from addictive behaviours.

Dopamine Fasting 2.0 is a modified and better-defined version that explains that dopamine is necessary for daily functioning. Dopamine fasting is not performed to actually reduce the levels of dopamine in the body but it is about reducing impulsive behaviours based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

The video mentions the 6 common impulsive behaviours, they are:

  1. Emotional eating
  2. Internet and gaming
  3. Gambling and shopping
  4. Thrill and novelty seeking
  5. Recreational drugs
  6. Porn and masturbation

#4 2 Types of Porn Addiction by Dr.Trish Leigh

This video gets straight into the two observable types of porn addiction. People who have porn addiction fall into either the middle age and older category or the new age addiction.

The older category would have found pornography through still images and magazines and were not exposed to internet porn. For them, the root cause might be childhood trauma that caused this addiction. Most often they are exposed to it by someone else who is older and not through sheer curiosity.

The other category is the more contemporary form of porn addiction which is caused due to high-speed internet porn. Internet porn is everywhere and because of easy access, people are exposed to it at a really young age. The younger you are, the easier it is for you to be hijacked by porn.

Porn addiction is classified into these two types to show that it is not only caused due to childhood trauma. But even easy access and the novelty of new-age porn can cause this addiction.

#6 Why Porn Is More Dangerous Than You Think! (Escaping a porn addiction) – Jordan Peterson Motivation

Jordan Bernt Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist and in this motivational video he talks about how porn is free and widely available to people. It is so easy to indulge in easy access sexual pleasure. Try to actually work for something a little more difficult but a lot more fulfilling, like a relationship.

Groups like ‘Men Going Their Own Way’ are renouncing any and all contact with women and demonizing them, instead of trying to create meaningful relations with them.

It has drawn men in our society to be “all pleasure and no responsibility”. They have become slaves to super stimuli. Peterson talks about porn as an easy out, instead of actually talking and interacting with real women they seek gratification through porn.
