Addiction To Porn & Escorts

Recently there was in interesting online article on a well known news media website. It told the story of a man from the UK whose porn addiction led to an 'escort addiction'. It is paramount to state that this gentleman was seeing escorts who went beyond the normal companionship only service to obviously very intimate rendezvous. So nay men in the UK suffer with a porn addiction of some kind. The alarming thing is many people who have this addiction do not even realise it could pose a significant problem in their life. Porn addiction can cause many problems. If you are a guy in a relationship then it could lead to a warped view of sex. You could be unknowingly pressurizing your partner or wife to act out as a porn star. Some men watch porn and find masturbating to it more satisfying than having actual sex. This can leave their girlfriend or wife confused and hurt. They feel that their partner may not find them sexually attractive anymore or find other women more appealing sexually. This can lead to arguments, resentments and even divorce. Many gentlemen are left with a very narrow and warped view of sex if they are addicted to porn. It is easy for them to objectify women and see them solely as sex objects. Or view all sex to be something that you would see in a porn movie. So as an individual they could change how they perceive they should act sexually and have different expectations for future girlfriends. Somehow they put women in porn videos on a pedestal of sexual brilliance. Forgetting the many deep, emotional diverse dynamics sex has. So where does such an addiction progress onto an 'escort' addiction.

Well going back to the article in the Telegraph, it describes a man who has gone through a journey. Every addiction starts from something small and the enticement of free porn, snowballed into something far bigger. For many men in their 20's daring sexual encounters are always high up their list of things to achieve. In this gentleman's situation, that wasn't the mind-set. It was rather exploration and curiosity that got the better of him. However it is unclear if during is meeting with hundreds of escorts workers, porn was the constant driving force. Did one addiction end only for another to begin. Were the two addictions (porn & escorts) interlaced somehow. Each addiction feeding off one another possibly? What was clear was the massive amount of money this gentleman spent. He spent over £40,000; possibly he may have spent more... who knows? What was clear was the fantasy realm of porn led to the fantasy fulfillment through these particular type of escorts. Such escapades took him all over the UK to many cities. Did he experience excitement and a kind of 'jet set' lifestyle on a very small scale. Porn star escorts have a massive following and because they are stars of adult films. So when it comes to having a fan base and client base for that matter; they never struggle. It is that fantasy, thrill seeking element and transition of screen to real life that is the real driving force of this addiction. However one key thing that this online article posed, was this quite unique question. Is this guy a victim? Is he a victim to the massive amounts of porn available on the internet? Was he introduced to porn too early? The dark side of porn addiction creates many victims. Escort addiction seems to be a very financially costly one. People are spending thousands on escorts and getting into huge debts. The other question should be - Should there be ore awareness on escort addiction?
