Is Porn a Threat to Public Health?

Wendy Maltz, LCSW, DST, is an internationally recognized psychotherapist, sex therapist, and author of numerous books on sexuality, including The Porn Trap: The Essential Guide to Overcoming Problems Caused by Pornography.  How porn influences the brain is very important to realize and consider.  In her article, Is Porn a Threat to Public Health? Here Are the Questions You Need to Ask Clients Using Porn she states:

My newfound knowledge of pornography’s druglike effects helped me bring more compassion to the issues porn users faced. Not only were their partners in distress: anyone trying to quit using porn faced his or her own difficult emotional and physiological struggles. I started recommending that clients supplement their individual and couples counseling work with attending 12-step sexual addiction recovery programs, such as Sex Addicts Anonymous, Sexaholics Anonymous, and Recovering Couples Anonymous, or porn recovery groups of their own choosing. With my background in drug and alcohol counseling, I know that support groups can be critical to successful recovery, helping overcome social isolation and shame, building accountability supports, and sharing triumphs.”
