The term "porn" can be defined as any video or images that are sexually suggestive. Porn is not limited to pornography but includes any man-on-man action and sometimes even involves women participating in the activity. Porn is gaining popularity as more men feel that they need to satisfy their libido. The word "porn" is derived from the Greek word meaning "to stretch." Porn is becoming an increasingly common form of entertainment and many people consider it to be acceptable in today's society.
The major part of the pornography industry is the retail of pornographic movies, adult magazines, and other forms at adult shops. Online retailers of porn include online adult video stores, adult websites like Fetive.com, and on-line adult video sharing and webcam porn websites. Porno movies, adult videos, or homemade videos films that depict sexual subject matters in order to arouse and sometimes satisfy the viewer. Porn movies generally contain sexually suggestive content including nudity and often contain sexually arousing material including sex toys.
Porn addiction is associated with sexual addiction, especially when multiple pornography uses begin to take place over a period of time. Compulsive pornography use can be considered a sexual addiction. The relationship between pornography addiction and sex addiction is currently not well understood, but current studies do indicate that pornography addicts may share some characteristics with other sex addicts.
One of the most important aspects of pornography is its protection by copyright law. There are two major ways that pornography can be copyrighted. The first way is through slogans, jokes, or songs that could be construed as sexual content by anyone who is not specifically viewing it for that purpose. The second way is through the creation of fictional characters, situations, or activities. In the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and several European countries, the creation of any original literary work that portrays or describes any sort of sexual activity or conduct is construed as having illicit sexual activity as part of its purpose.
Because many people view pornography as a type of sexual entertainment, similar laws may have certain effects on the pornography industry. In general, laws regulating adult entertainment are designed to prevent minors from seeing or being exposed to materials that are too coarse or offensive for their age. Pornography is often targeted towards the youngest audience possible because of this. For this reason, the production of pornography may require a parent or legal guardian to sign a release form for any non-related media from being downloaded from any computer that contains porn. In other cases, the content is blocked from even appearing on certain web pages and social networking sites.
Some people suffering from porn addiction will also try to ignore their addiction in an effort to maintain their dignity. Unfortunately, the constant viewing of porn can wear down the senses, causing people to lose interest in other things. With this in mind, those suffering from this addiction may try to increase their daily dosage or even change their daily routine in order to cope with the constant viewing. This can be very dangerous, since it decreases people's sexual desire and leads them to engage in dangerous behaviors such as unprotected sex and the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.
There are other ways to treat a person's compulsive sexual behavior other than just offering them some therapy or counseling. While therapy and counseling can be beneficial, they aren't considered an appropriate substitute for dealing with a problem like porn addiction. Since sexual behavior has multiple causes (i.e., hormonal, neurological, socioeconomic), there is no single method or cure for sexual behavior. Because of this, therapies and counseling can serve only to supplement treatment, allowing a person to address one or two issues that may be affecting their sexual behavior.
