I was reading on the topic, and saw it mentioned that the porn addict often needs to keep escalating the porn to higher and higher levels of intensity to keep getting the desired results. I also read that “intimate sex with a partner pales in comparison to the intense high of indulging in the sex-addicted behavior.”

This makes me feel hopeless about our marriage and sex life. Pales in comparison?! How am I supposed to handle that information?

I understand completely. I think open discussion is your best option. Have you tried talking with about this specifically? How did he respond? Hopefully it will lead to steps of realizing that porn is no more real than a genie in a bottle.

I am going to his therapy session Friday and will talk about it then. He is not comfortable talking about sex but with the therapist there as a moderator he will.
