Porn & Sex Addiction Therapy Blog

Welcome to our blog page. Here you will find a range of short articles about sex and pornography addiction and its impact on partners – and also on society. We aim to write at least two blogs a month. Some will be extracts from books written by Paula Hall, some are about news items that have recently been in the press. We also like to write about some of the controversies in sex and porn addiction as we’re aware of what a huge impact they can have on people struggling with this problem and also those of us that work in the field. Please do have a browse and if you find something that interests you, please do feel free to share with friends on social media as, or if, appropriate.
