    Would you leave your mate because of a porn addiction? (videos)

    Porn does not effect some people and for others it does a mental job to their self esteem.  At what point does the porn addiction begin to take hold and what are the concerns for those who remain with pron addicted lovers? Please help. Ladies be honest.,, Considering leaving if porn does not cease!

    With utmost honesty, if my boyfriend's porn site hopping becomes detrimental to our relationship and most especially to himself, I don't think I can afford to leave him given such awful situation. I believe that's the time he needed me the most. This might indicate a mental problem which needs treatment and resolution...

    Porn addiction would be the only time that it could be truly detrimental. If it took away from our sexual experiences and communications, then it would be a deal breaker. Otherwise, pornography is a perfectly fine exploration of one's inner nature.

    Interest in seeing naked bodies is perfectly natural and healthy, as is curiousity about what couples do and how they do it.  So, for someone who occasionally takes a look, there is no reason to be embarrassed, ashamed, guilty, or anything negative.
    That being said, there is something very unhealthy for someone who enjoys porn often, especially if he is in a relationship.  A little fantasy is fine, but if you're finding more fun in fantasy than in real life, you've got a problem.  Especially if you have a partner readily available.
    A strong, anything more than casual interest in porn bespeaks of either placing a disproportionate importance on sex or a deeply unfulfilled desire, or both.
    Should someone leave a mate with a porn addiction?  No, not leave as in abandon, but yes, leave as in take a step back, definitely.  It's like any other addiction: if the addict doesn't acknowledge it and address it, one way or another he'll drag down the people around him.
    So, to emphasize my answer: abandon, no; leave, yes, at least until you're absolutely sure he's made significant progress.

    I would try to get my partner help if they actually became addicted to porn I wouldn't leave them without giving them a chance to get better. If they could not be helped then I would probably have to leave.

    In all honesty, I would probably leave, particularly if I've already expressed my concerns and encouraged my partner to seek help and my partner remained in denial it was a problem.
