Cultural Quote #251: Pornography Doesn’t Satisfy Our Need To Connect

But the greater reason why I think porn is addictive is because it doesn’t really satisfy our deeper desires. It only transacts with us on this level. See, I’ve spent most of my live believing that sexual urges outside of a committed relationship are bad, that I should forget about them, that I should suppress or delete them. But what I’ve realized is that those urges are just a manifestation of something that’s far more core and deep, innate in human nature. It’s our need to connect with other humans.
