‘Women do not watch porn is a myth’

In a recent survey at Patna station, it was observed that 90 per cent of the people downloaded porn on free Wi-Fi service

Deprived of watching porn for two days, Mahesh Shah, aged 25, failed to concentrate at work during a conference. That was a warning bell for the marketing executive as he discovered that he was a porn addict.

Easy access to porn led him to watch it as an entertainment. He didn’t realise the addiction till he went for the conference where there was no Internet service,” said Dr Sagar Mundada, psychiatrist, KEM hospital.

Unable to watch porn, Shah suffered anxiety, which affected his work. “He had to give a presentation, but his mind was so preoccupied with the thought of not able to watch porn that he couldn’t give his best,” said Mundada.

Shah ended up making major mistakes and received a warning of being sacked from his company.

“He approached us through his friend when he thought this addiction is leading him to lose his job” said Mundada. Counselling and medication helped him in giving up the addiction.

Porn addiction due to easy access of Internet is on a rise, say doctors.  In a recent survey at Patna station, it was observed that 90 per cent of the people downloaded porn on free Wi-Fi service. This clearly indicates people’s addiction to watch porn. “It is a universal phenomenon that the first thing anybody would do on Internet is watch porn, especially men and younger generation,” added Mundada.

He said in majority of mobile phones and laptops, porn and erotic images are the most common things that anyone would have. “School and college-going kids are most vulnerable to pornography,” said Mundada.

Dr Milan Balakrishnan, consultant psychiatrist at Bombay Hospital, explained that porn addiction affects day-to-day life of a person. “It affects both physical and emotional health. Porn addicts usually face compulsive sexual behaviour, where they constantly visualise pornographic material,” said Balakrishnan.

While doctors opine that porn addiction is affecting all age group these days, psychiatrists say it is possible to treat porn addiction through psychotherapy and counselling. “Women do not watch porn is a myth. Porn addiction is beyond gender and age. There are a number of women who are addicted to porn. Women addicted to porn are at the risk of suffering attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD),” said Balakrishnan.

Meanwhile, even the child psychiatrists say porn addiction is getting common among children. “Easy accessibility of porn online has led to many children getting addicted to porn. At the tender age, it is the inquisitiveness and curiosity that leads to addiction. Parents should be protective as well as supportive. When a child is growing up, he needs to be taught to sexually respect every individual,” said Dr Fabian Almeida, psychiatrist.

He also added that when children are given school/college projects, parents should ensure they don’t work behind latched doors. “It gives them liberty to surf anything on Internet. There are random pop-ups of porn sites, which attract kids to visit the site and out of curiosity, kids may eventually lead to an addiction. Nowadays, not only laptops or computers, but mobile phones with 3G and 4G connections give liberty of watching porn anywhere and anytime. So parents should be careful before lending or buying phones or computers,” said Almeida.
