An Addiction by the Numbers

When dealing with the difficult topic of pornography, I thought I share with all of you some statistics I found in my research to prepare for last week’s Safe Haven Sunday.

  • 12% of all websites online are pornographic
  • Every second, over 28,000 people are looking at porn
  • 40 million Americans are regular porn viewers
  • 70% of men aged 18-24 regularly look at porn
  • The average age children are first exposed to porn is 11 years old
  • Nearly 27% of teens receive sexts (texts with pornography), 15% are sending them.
  • 57% of teens search out porn at least monthly.
  • 30% of women struggle with porn on a regular basis.
  • 68% of divorce cases involved one party meeting a new lover over the Internet.
  • 56% involved one party being “obsessed” with pornographic websites
  • 70% of wives of sex addicts could be diagnosed with PTSD

If you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction, I am here for you, the Church is here for you. Let’s get free and help keep our children and families safe. Start here: https://cleanheart.online/diocese-venice-0
