Are You Addicted to Porn? Take Our Five-Minute Test to Find Out

Internet porn is taking over the world. Last year alone, 4.6 billion hours of pornography was streamed on PornHub, accounting for 12.5 videos for every person on Earth.

How many users are actually addicted to watching porn? Researchers estimate around four per cent, and they’ve come up with a five-minute test to help you determine whether or not your relationship with online porn is problematic. 

The test asks participants about how important porn is to them, and what their reaction would be if they were suddenly prevented from watching it.  

Take The Test

Answer the 17 questions below rating them by how much they apply to you, using the key: 1 = never, 2 = rarely, 3 = occasionally, 4 = sometimes, 5 = often, 6 = very often, 7 = all the time.

1. I felt that porn is an important part of my life.

2. I used porn to restore the tranquillity of my feelings.

3. I felt porn caused problems in my sexual life

4. I felt that I had to watch more and more porn for satisfaction.

5. I unsuccessfully tried to reduce the amount of porn I watch.

6. I became stressed when something prevented me from watching porn.

7. I thought about how good it would be to watch porn.

8. Watching porn got rid of my negative feelings.

9. Watching porn prevented me from bringing out the best in me.

10. I felt that I needed more and more porn in order to satisfy my needs.

11. When I vowed not to watch porn any more, I could only do it for a short period of time.

12. I became agitated when I was unable to watch porn.

13. I continually planned when to watch porn.

14. I released my tension by watching porn.

16. I resisted watching porn for only a little while before I relapsed.

17. I missed porn greatly when I didn’t watch it for a while.

Add the scores for all the questions together. A score of 76 or higher suggests problematic levels of pornography use.
