Porn Addiction: A Self-Assessment Quiz

here’s something I found on RecoveryIsSexy.com :

Am I Addicted to Pornography?

This is a self-assessment quiz for determining whether you might be addicted to pornography.

* Do you ever find yourself spending more time viewing pornography than you intended to?
* Are you spending less time with family and friends than you used to because of time with pornography?
* Do you usually masturbate while viewing pornography?
* Has your job performance suffered as a result of porn use?
* Has your use of pornography caused problems with your spouse or romantic partner?
* Do you sometimes prefer masturbation with pornography over sex with your spouse or significant other?
* Do you ever wake up tired because of late-night use of pornography?
* Do you keep your porn use secret from others, sometimes lying to cover it up?
* Do you sometimes fantasize about people you’ve seen in pornography while having real sex with a partner?
* Has your pornography use caused trouble with the law?
* Do you seek sexual images that are more graphic, hard-core or “forbidden” than you once did?
* Have you ever promised yourself that you would stop viewing pornography, then broken that resolution?
* Do you ever get upset at yourself for the time and resources you spend on pornography?
* Do you keep viewing porn even when you know you should really be going home or going to bed?
* Have you lost the ability to find sufficient excitement in pornography and gone beyond that to seek others for sexual chat or illicit sexual encounters?
* Do you feel guilty or ashamed after viewing pornography or other sexual activity?
* Do you worry that your pornography use is getting out of control?
* Is it easier for you to reach climax masturbating to pornography than having sex with a partner?
* Have others said that you have a problem with pornography?
* Do you find yourself looking forward to porn use as a “reward” or “escape” from the stresses of everyday life?

If you answered “yes” to 5 or more of the above, you may have a serious problem with pornography. If you answered “yes” to 10 or more of the above, you may have a problem with addiction to porn.
