Porn Sites Continue to Represent a Landslide Lead in Online Search and Use

Sex is the most frequently typed word in Internet searches by far, reflecting what may be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the numbers of sex-related sites available on the Web.

As download speeds increase and broadband comes to even more remote regions, headlines are turning to the sheer depth and breadth of videos, online porn sites, sex chat sites and even specialized porn-related social media sites.

While it’s hard to fathom just how many porn-related Internet sites are available, recent research related to Google’s Ad Planner tool suggests that porn sites are still far and above at the top of the most highly-accessed sites.

The number one ranking pornography website is XVideos, with more than 4.4 billion user views monthly – making this site far larger than websites like ESPN and major news outlets. Video-based porn sites like YouPorn, are reaching a size some say is nearly rivaling users across Facebook or Google.

Experts believe the incredible accessibility and presumed anonymity of porn-related sites across the web are contributing to rising numbers of pornography addictions. Pornography addiction, like substance addictions, is progressive in nature and often carries a strong obsessive or compulsive element.

People with pornography addictions are unable to stop themselves form viewing porn at inappropriate and public places, even in environments where it leads to loss of job, social relationships and family. They may isolate themselves to continue viewing the materials and often report a sense of “numbing out” with the images as a way to escape negative emotions.

Pornography addiction requires professional treatment to reach recovery, including therapies designed to address the root causes and triggers of the powerful addiction.
