How to prevent and help overcome addiction to pornography.
The consumption of porn is increasing and is starting at younger ages. The internet and smartphone revolutions have made pornography easily accessible and massively widespread, which has caused teenagers to isolate themselves from their social environment and stop enjoying their sexual relationships. In adults, it often triggers addiction, which in turn can lead to the loss of one’s job and family estrangement.
In Why Not?, Alejandro Villena, psychologist and clinical sexologist, explains the impact of porn on personal and sexual relationships, as well as its social and psychological costs. An highly complex subject, he approaches it rigorously, using statistical data, academic studies, scientific research, personal reflections and statements.
The author analyzes how this hypersexualized society should change in order not to dehumanize and denigrate people, and provides practical tools to prevent, detect and manage pornography addiction. He also reminds us of the importance of developing a healthy sexuality based on respect, ethics, management of emotions, fairness and self-acceptance. In short, this is a book everyone should read.
