If that's true, how can I watch the same level of porn literally every time? If anything I watch softer porn than I used to. And I have had to quit for practical reasons numerous times. No negative effects. I am not an addict. If I was, problems would come up in one of those two cases.

That 'it does the same as a hard drug' is a ******** line repeated by websites like NoFap who have no scientific backing. Porn doesn't give you a high, it's not a drug. It rewards your brain in a completely different way. It can't produce an unnatural amount of dopamine because it's not as rewarding as actual sex, which would reward you more.

No, most people don't 'quit' porn because they don't have to. It's not a problem. If you are addicted to porn then I believe there's something else that's wrong in your life. You don't get addicted to something that's not addictive if there's not something else at play.

no one knows if theyre addicted or not until they try to quit. few decide to quit porn outright because we are told its 'normal natural healthy'. in my experience and other porn free people if you watch porn regularly for years and years you can't just quit. i quit 4 years ago and im still trying to quit. and im not some sort of crazy addict i watched it 2/3 x a week.
porn does damage the body it triggers the reward circuit it mens brain similar to that of a hardcore drug. it produces unnatural amounts of dopamine and the brain starts cutting back receptors to handle it. its why you need to watch more hardcore porn to get the same high

'. I have been watching porn since I was 12 and I'm not addicted to it in the slightest'. i had that thought once just like all the other addicts did

Trust me, they would. Luckily this porn ban is never going to happen by the looks of it. It's been announced multiple times in the last couple of years yet never happened. Don't see why this time is any different

I guess it's a good thing in this case that government is as inefficient as it is.

Creditable? I think you mean credible. And no, there really isn't. This stuff has been researched for many years now. Sexuality in general has been discouraged and a societal taboo for centuries, there are bound to be people who swear that it's harmful based on old propaganda. That's all it is. All this **** about 'lowering t levels' and 'increasing dopamine' is nothing but propaganda. Despite all the research, the general consensus is that porn isn't dangerous or addictive. You can argue about cases of addiction and such, but basically anything is going to cause problems in at least one person.

And like I've said, porn addiction is usually a symptom of something else. The only things that can make you addicted to them just by taking them are physically addictive substances. As you don't physically consume porn, that is impossible.

Definition of Creditable:


(of a performance, effort, or action) deserving public acknowledgement and praise but not necessarily outstanding or successful

Definition of Credible:
able to be believed; convincing

Not sure how this will work out really bearing in mind the insatiatiable appetite for pornography. But pretty convinced that something should be done to prevent adolescents having easy access the commonplace vile content on the internet. Perhaps control of the type of pornography available could be the better bet.

. 1 of my mates did also mention that some pornsites dont work if you use a VPN, so that kinda defeats the purpose of using one to view porn does it not?
if youre using a dedicated ip vpn its virtually impossible to detect it

Vile? I think you're compensating for something.

Don't think so. Take a look at some of the categories and descriptions.

I do so on a nearly daily basis. Nothing vile. If you don't like it then by all means don't watch it but don't then brand it as 'vile' just because you don't like it. Also, there are a lot of different types of porn. Some are absolutely hideous to me obviously, but if some people like that then I don't see the problem. None of it is real anyway.
