This silly TED talk by a man who failed to become a nurse, let alone a doctor, has been doing the rounds for a few years and has been bought hook, line and sinker by people who should know better.

It has now been comprehensively debunked

Everything can be additive. But there's a difference between things with inherent addictive elements/substances (eg cigarettes, MDMA, etc) and things that don't (eg porn, TSR, etc).

Sex is one of the fundamental base instincts which dominates the thoughts of human beings. To say porn is not inherently addictive is like saying junk food is not addictive.

Sex and food. Anything which can stimulate these instincts is inherently going to cause addiction. Not in all people. But then not all people became addicted to junk food.

You either didn't read or you don't know any science at all.

Some people are addicted to food or sex because of their instincts, but they don't have addictive substances such as nicotine. If we should ban junk food and porn by your logic, we should ban all kinds of food, water, love, sexual contact, rep, Facebook likes, music, and everything that will give us any kind of pleasure and enjoyment.

Porn hyper stimulates the sex instinct; the sex instinct being one of the most powerful instincts which drive humans. Third behind the need for air and food/water.

Its absurd to suggest porn is not addictive.

Salt, fat and sugar are substances which release feelings and hormones in the human body, which is why they are so addictive. The same applies to the chemical and hormonal release which happens after orgasm. No one watches porn without masturbating. Porn is just the means of which people exihbit addiction to orgasm.

Porn addiction is essentially orgasm addiction. You can't seperate the two.

First of all, I watch porn without masturbating. So it's not 'no-one'.

And you need to learn how to read or properly respond to people. Your logic on porn being 'addictive' is the same for water, food, air, praise, compassion, and everything.

I don't know what point you are trying to make. Shall we ban air, food, water, human interaction, watching scenic beauty, listening to music, etc? All addictive.

There's a lot more problems with porn than just addiction

What are you defining addictive as? Because it seems to me to be any substance that can be the subject of addiction....
