Why do people get addicted to pornography

Porn addiction is not only affecting USA but the whole world. High Speed internet access in all developed and developing countries is acting as a catalyst in this addiction. Young generation often get attracted to porn as it is something new and exciting for them and they feel more pleasure in it than any other activity. Truth is that sometimes age don't matter for pornography addiction and person of any age group can get addicted to it due to different reasons.

Here are some basic reasons behind porn addiction. These reasons are somehow related to lives of most of the humans of modern world who think themselves as technically advanced. 

Pleasure: Pleasure is the primary requirement for any addiction. Especially in teens when they are new to sexual pleasure and if they are introduced to porn at that time then most probably they will try to watch it again and again with something new every time.
Absence of a partner: Among adults the absence of partner due to any reason can sometime attract a person towards porn. People often watch porn to get relief from sexual frustration in long distance relationships.
Lack of time to get intimate: Sometimes people have a partner who live in the same house but don't get time to be intimate due to busy schedule. It is common in metro cities where both partners work to earn good money at the cost of very less personal life.
Man seek out a variety: Males in most species don't stick to just one female, so that they can spread their genes. Same personality trait comes in man that he can't remain satisfied with just one irrespective of beauty of woman. Even those who don't cheat, try to watch porn to satisfy that other need.
Free availability of internet pornography: Free availability of porn videos on internet has increased the number of porn addicts in past one decade. Teens go on these websites just to satisfy their curiosity and later get addicted to it. They don't even need any paid subscription to watch porn. Free availability is the number one reason behind the porn addiction.

Science behind Porn Addiction

As a matter of fact whenever a man or woman reaches the climax of sexual activity, he/she is emotionally bound to the other person. In case of pornography the other person is nothing but a video on the screen. Repetition of the same behavior connects the person to porn content so much that it becomes harder for him or her to resist from it. This is the starting phase of porn addiction. When we try to understand the science behind porn addiction then we find that it is just like any other addiction but it harms our brain and thinking much more than any other addiction.
Dopamine is a chemical which is released in brain whenever we feel excitement, sexual arousal and happiness. Whenever dopamine is released in the brain, our brain stores the act just done before to know what lead to that excitement and happiness. Some drugs like cocaine also affect the dopamine release to make a person addicted to it. Interesting fact is that erotic imagery releases more dopamine in brain than sex with a familiar partner. When our brain compares these different dopamine levels, it finds that real sex is less exciting than watching porn and feel more connected to pornography. Better reward is always inspiring to do more. Thus it becomes a reward driven addiction.
How does porn harm your brain, body and life ?

Sex is a necessity of human body and there is nothing abnormal in it. If an adult person don't have a partner for long duration and he/she don't want to cheat his/her partner then most probably he/she will turn to porn. Till this time it is not an addiction, but it can easily become an addiction if you start avoiding your partner to get pleasure by watching porn alone. Such condition can easily ruin a relationship and social behavior of a person. So if is better to avoid porn and find a real partner for the real adventure of life.
