Can a 18 y.o. girl have a porn addiction ?!

Hello everyone .. I'll get straight to the problem .. I'm 18 Y.O. Virgin , single girl .. egyptian , where premarital sex is Banned religueosly and socialy .
It all started when I used to watch Uncut sex scenes in movies .. I used to feel happy and excited .. then I tried to search youtube for sex scene ( it didnt exceed to porn videos still ) I got then more excited .. Then It went releee bad , when i started to log into some porn websites , and watch porn videos , at the begining it was once or twice a month in the biological period if the month a woman needs to have sex .. then it developed that i watch it many times even when i had my monthly period ..

I dont know is it normal becoz i'm still a virgin or is it ubnormal and i need help :S ?? plz if i have a problem help me :S

you don't have a problem. Lots of people watch porn. Some people are open about it and others watch it secretly but most people out there have seen porn at least once in their lives. It's ok that your a virgin and are still excited by it. It's porn! It's meant to get people excited. You don't have a psychological problem just because you get excited when watching porn. There is a lot of censorship and strict rules where you are but not every where in the world is like that. But most people get excited when they see porn so it's NOT abnormal that you do too.

okkk ... thnxx a lot :)

xoxo , N !!

you're welcome. I think you feel guilty because of where you are but I'm 20 and I know A LOT of people my age and tounger have watched porn and some watch it often especially guys lol it's not an addiction unless you're so caught up that it interferes with your life and you can't go to school or work because you stay home watching it. you'll be ok. It seems like you just watch it sometimes to get in the mood and that's perfectly ok. good luck =)

This is very normal so long as you dont become obsessed or addicted to it you'll be fine.

Take care of you.

I really don't know if you're addicted to sex or not, but there's a quick and easy way to find out for sure. A man by the name of Patrick J. Carnes, Ph.D. has developed something called the Sexual Addiction Screening Test that can tell you whether or not you're addicted. You can find the test on either of two (2) websites:

Sex Help
www.sexhelp.com/

Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health
www.sash.net/

At the top of the Home Page on either site you will see the question, "Am I a Sex Addict?" If you will click on that question, the test will come up for you. It can be taken right there online (it should only take you two or three minutes), and then you can submit it for scoring. In just a few seconds, you'll have your answer. Just for your information, a score of 11 or higher usually indicates that a sexual addiction is present.

NOTE: If you will go to the website of the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health, they also have a special screening test for women only. Women often have very different issues and concerns when it comes to sexual addiction. Hope something here helps.

listen it might be normal for you to watch porn but i would highly recommend you don't. it is so easy to get addicted too. i got addicted to it at age 11 and i am 25 now and just started getting help for it. if you watch it just please don't get addicted to it or let it consume your life because it will ruin your life with others and future bf's/husband. i almost lost my gf of 4 years and best friend of 10 because of this but she is sticking by me while i get help. just please don't get addicted to it!

I suffer with these same lust but i believe my addication started because of sexual abuse when i was a child. Have you been abused/

NJguy is correct. Most sex addicts were sexually abused in some manner, shape, or form when they were children. And not to get into your personal business, but we here in the United States would consider what some in Egypt call "female circumcision" to be a form of sexual abuse. We see it as being an extremely cruel form of sexual abuse which is perpetrated on little girls who have absolutely no say in the matter. The surgery is usually done on them when they are 8- to 10-years-old, long before they can resist or say "No". But I know that this procedure is very common in Egypt, particularly among many in the Islamic community. Of course, I don't know that you are Muslim, and it's really none of my business. You could be a Christian for all I know. There are many of them in Egypt. But my point here is simple. If you did undergo "female circumcision", we here in the west would consider that to be a form of sexual abuse, which would make it more likely that you could be a sex addict. If you have any questions as to whether or not you're addicted, take the Sexual Addiction Screening Test which I mentioned in an earlier response.

Keep in mind that porn affects the brain quickly and in a very powerful manner. The "sex/porn" addiction comes from an addiction to the nuerochemicals/nuerotransmitters produced by the brain, not the pornography. The pornography and masturbation is the way we access these chemicals. The more porn you watch, the more you will need next time to reach the same or close to the same high you had before.

Try to stop, for 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 1 year. If you can do this for over 1 year, chances are you may not be "addicted" yet.
