  • Do you make on-going but unsuccessful efforts to stop, reduce, or control viewing pornography?
  • Do you spend an inordinate amount of time obtaining pornography, viewing pornography, and/or being sexual -- either through masturbation, with another person or object, or recovering from sexual experiences?
  • Do you find yourself feeling preoccupied with sexual fantasies, sexualized thoughts, and/or preparation for viewing pornography?
  • Does viewing pornography take significant time away from obligations: occupational, academic, domestic or social?
  • Do you continue to view pornography despite the negative consequences?
  • Do you find you need more frequent or intense pornography over time to obtain the desired result?
  • Are you deliberately limiting social, occupational, or recreational activities in order to make time for finding and viewing pornography?
