WHAT IS ADDICTION?
Pornography addiction, as the name implies, is a dependency, an addiction.
Neurobiologists have found the same change in brain scans of porn addicts as found in substance addicts. Consequently, neurobiological processes take place in the brain even in the case of a behavioural disorder without substance, which are comparable to a substance-bound addiction (e.g. alcohol or heroin) (1). Without going any further into brain physiological processes, it can also be seen from the symptoms that a behavioural addiction such as pornography addiction shows almost congruent symptoms, such as a substance-bound addiction. That includes:
2-3 symptoms are a moderate addiction, more than 4 a more severe addiction.
Examples for the detection of neurobiological structural changes using functional brain images in magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI):
