Some men face a variety of stressors throughout life and fail to find effective coping skills. As a result, they turn to pornography. This compulsion often leads to addiction, where the individual, with his own efforts, attempts to stop viewing pornography but is unable to. At One By One, we guide clients to identify healthy ways of coping with life stressors outside of pornography and masturbation.
With pornography addiction, real intimacy is replaced with artificial intimacy. As a result, intimacy and trust lessen and conflict rises. Teaching about real love and intimacy is imperative while learning about boundaries and limits. We walk clients through this shame-free process with the end goal of connection, trust and real intimacy.
