Addicted to porn? You are likely to feel OK about it

New York, April 10 (IANS) The people who are addicted to pornography are less likely to feel guilty or be uncomfortable with their addiction than those who use it less frequently, finds a new research.

The research commissioned by US-based evangelist Josh McDowell found that 89 percent of daily pornography users are comfortable with their use of porn. This is compared to 77 percent of weekly users and 70 percent of once-or-twice-a-month users who said the same, TheBlaze.com reported.

Only three percent of daily users said they wished they no longer used pornography, while just 7 percent of monthly users and 12 percent of once-or-twice-a-month users concurred.

“If you use porn often, you’re more likely to feel OK about it,” said the study conducted by the Barna Group. “If you use porn less often, you’re more likely to feel uncomfortable with it,” it added.

When broken down into age groups, those between 13-17 years of age were found to be the least comfortable with their pornography consumption. Still, 52 percent of young teens said they felt their pornography use was OK. Only 31 percent of young teens said they felt guilty about using pornography.

Adults were found to be much more accepting of their pornography addictions, according to the study. By no surprise, they were also found to have the least amount of guilt about using pornography.

However, it was found that – with the exception of young teens – the younger the pornography user, the less guilty a user felt. Adversely, the older the pornography user, the more likely they were to feel guilty or be uncomfortable about using pornography.
