    At some age most of the people are addicted to watch porn some get over it early, some take time and some enjoy it for life as some secrete activity. Is watching porn can change someone's thinking about the word outside screen? or it is just an activity of entertainment?
    Well i think it can change one's way of thinking what do you think?

    All depends on the mentality of that person. At the early stage of human life people tend to have curiosity to know about their opposite sex but I don't think it can change someone's way of thinking.

    It's a really good point Sushanta Kashyap but here i am taking about addiction to porn. A desire that doesn't end no matter how many one has watched, no matter if one is in a relationship. I came across an article "Pornography a road to hell" and then i thought to discuss this here.

    I think it depends on the person. Anything can become an addiction. Shopping, alcohol, food, sex, social media. Because these things can be addictive does not mean that I will never take part in them.

    I agree with the majority stating it depends on the person and their mentality.

    The person addicted to porn has a strong, or persistent residual, belief that sex equates to being loving and loved. When in fact, it is being lustful and lusted (desired for sexual pleasure and relief). It has nothing to do with real love (the unconditional type). If we cut to the chase of it all, it is about exploiting self, as a being, to satisfy the ego-self which always seeks validation. Porn is an easy way for the ego to gain validation (worthy of love) though it is all imagined.

    As long as they hang onto that conditional belief, they will always know that porn will satisfy their imagination of being so-called loving or worthy of love. Once the porn behaviour is over, they inevitably find themselves back to their unsatisfactory conditional beliefs about love.

    To answer the thread question. Practicing porn, or conditional love, is missing the point. In other words, yes, it is a threat because it prolongs untrue beliefs which contributes to the human personality.
