The title of this article has become a familiar refrain heard by therapists everywhere. With the advent of the internet, porn has become available, anonymous, and affordable. People who, in the past, would not have gone to questionable or seedy places to obtain it can now view it at home or privately on one of many WiFi capable devices they own.

Understanding Sex Addiction - San Francisco Bay Times | San Francisco Bay Times
Individuals who are addicted to sex or pornography often research programs that may be helpful in recovering from their addictive and potentially dangerous behavior, a positive first step. As a highly trusted and reputable addiction, recovery, and treatment facility, we want to enlighten those with sex addiction issues regarding these organizations. Sex Addicts Anonymous provides sections on its website regarding spirituality, sobriety, the twelve steps and traditions, and provides opportunities for those who want to connect with a sponsor, a former addict who has successfully overcome addictive sexual behavior, and remained abstinent from the behavior. Newcomers to SAA are highly encouraged to get a sponsor early on, and even change sponsors until a good "match" is made between the newcomer and the sponsor. Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous works in much the same manner, with newcomers obtaining a suitable sponsor who he or she can easily work with while applying the Twelve Step program to their lives.
