Porn Addiction Causes

The causes behind porn addiction vary depending on an individual's experience, therefore it is hard to pinpoint the exact causes of porn addiction. It is important to remember that elements of porn exposure are also an aspect to consider - such as:

- How old was the individual when he was exposed to porn?
- Why did he start watching porn - i.e what were the circumstances around that first experience?
- When did the individual first have any sexual experience? Was it a positive or negative experience?
- When did the dependency on porn start? 

Some of the causes of porn addiction could be:
- Negative sexual experiences
- Incorrect understanding of porn and its uses 
- Initially trying to learn about sexual experiences, resulted in dependency 
- Experiencing mental health disorders such as OCD (an anxiety disorder) or depression
