Hi! I'm a former partner of a porn addict, and I'm now a reporter at Columbia Journalism School in New York. When I was with my partner, I was looking for deep-dive reporting on what partners of addicts go through during this process. I also wanted to understand the misconceptions around the addiction so I could support my ex-boyfriend. I also wanted to understand how our understanding of intimacy and sex changes as we move forward in our relationships.

I'm now working on a reporting this story out myself, I've been speaking to therapists and experts, but would love to be able to interview other partners of porn addicts as well. I totally understand the need to be anonymous in the final publication, so once we talk, I am happy to discuss pseudonyms that we could use for you in the final story.

Are there any partners out there willing to share their experience with me? Please reach out to me at jv2664@columbia.edu. Thank you very much!

I think this is great. We need to bring awareness to this problem and have it be more of a conversation in our culture. I think the shame element really makes this addiction so much worse and it isolates addicts and partners so the more we can connect and share the more opportunity for healing and growth can occur.

I sent you an email too! Thanks!
