Porn addiction is as serious as drug addiction

Porn addiction is as serious as drug addiction

 

The News Story – Florida man demands right to wed computer

A recent article in The Telegraph reports that a former lawyer, Chris Sevier, recently sought a marriage license to marry his Mac-book computer.  In trying to argue his case, Sevier explained that he had become addicted to pornography via his computer, and so, “over time, [he] began preferring sex with [his] computer over sex with real women.”

The Telegraph reports Sevier as trying to make a case against the legalization of gay “marriage.”  Sevier stated in court: “If there is a risk that is posed to traditional marriage and children, both man-man couples and man-machine couples pose it equally.”  And he went on to say that “[in] considering the equal protection clause, there are no fewer policy reasons for preventing man-machine couples from marrying than there are for same-sex couples.”

While it might not be clear whether Sevier really wanted to marry his computer, or was just trying to prove a legalistic point, Sevier cites other cases where people succeeded in marrying inanimate objects or animals: One case where a woman “married” a dolphin, and another where a Chinese man “married” a cardboard cut-out of himself.

In addition to Sevier’s use of gay “marriage” to motivate legalizing machine “marriage,” recent research tells us how pornography can make romantic relationships with others less satisfying.  Given what habitual pornography viewing can do to one’s brain, it shouldn’t be surprising that porn-addicted men like Sevier prefer to be sexually stimulated by his computer over women.

The New Research – Porn: like taking drugs

It is time to start thinking about addiction to pornography—a destroyer of marriages—the same way we think about addiction to illegal drugs. So argue two neurosurgeons from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
