New study on porn and those who watch

Emerald Blue requested that it be here for this reason:

"Gracie, this would make an excellent Sticky in the Partner's Section because so many women who discover their man has a serious problem with pornography aren't aware of the reasons for why their partner's apparent lack of interest and wouldn't connect erectile dysfunction to an unhealthy relationship with pornography. Too many women feel rejected, put down and criticised when they become aware of their partner's habit. I know the extent of the damage caused by porn addiction far more complex but this info goes a long way to building a solid foundation from which a partner can begin to recover."

I thought it was a good idea as well as many women may not go to the men's area.

I agree with EB.  A lot of women looking for answers need this information and may not go to the men's area. If I need to put a sticky for the emotional side of it, then I can. 

Emerald Blue:
Apologies, Gracie. I thought Stillme had some very interesting points, and her experience and insight has come about as a consequence of her own very painful experience. Perhaps another thread could have been (or could still be) created to give space to the issues raised here to keep everything clear and on topic. Just to say, no one here has said anything out of order but I can see that if there's a sticky we need to make sure we don't lose it's original focus.

Gracie:
No need to apologize.  I just feel seeing that there is a need to this information in a scientific way.  As it helps.  I may move your and Stillme's to a different sticky if that would be okay.  Somewhere in my posts I have a study that talks about emotional effects on women from quite some time ago.  Give me a week and I will move this around so it flows a little better.

Gaia:
Thank you for posting this, it had been the most insightful and 'real' thread i have read on my journey to support my husband. The elements on emotional regression i had not read before. So a big Thank You from me. It helps ... a lot.

Gracie:
Your welcome!  The reasons you state are why it is here!!  If you need anything, let me know!!
