How do people develop sex/pornography addictions?

1 Heart

I have a feeling at least for me it developed early on in my relationship with wife because of sexless marriage last ten years and I’m married 36 years.

@Tgipper1961 You’ve never had sex with your wife?

Yes we have been together 44 years and last ten sexless she lost sexual attraction to me

@Tgipper1961 I’m really sorry.

I talk with a lot of people who have sex addiction, porn addictions, co-dependency etc. and everyone's story is different. There is no one reason that someone will become an addict or cross lines they never thought they would. I can tell you my story and how/why/when/where/what but it will never match the next person who is brave enough to tell you.

What are you looking for out of your question do you know someone that may be an addict? Are you thinking you may be an addict? Are you simply curious as to why sex addiction?

@Loveovercomes Just simply curious.
