Here are three statistics on sex addiction that may surprise you.
- 42.7% of internet users view pornography.
- There are more sex addicts in America than the population of 47 states.
- More than 80% of female porn addicts seek out multiple partners, casual sex, and affairs, which is more than men in all three categories.
The pandemic of sexual addiction is only spreading. When you read data on the magnitude of the problem, pay close attention to the date on which that data was gathered. If it has been more than five years ago, you can be sure the problem is much worse than that data will suggest.
There is much we still don’t know about sexual addiction. Like Paul, “We see through a glass darkly” (1 Corinthians 13:12). But we still see through the glass. And what’s on the other side is only getting worse.
Recovery Step: With the advent of social media, modern technology, and the recent isolation brought on by COVID, sexual addiction has spread like wildfire. The answer? Remain diligent.
