And it usually goes something like this, at the age of 10 or 11, or sometimes earlier, a child is exposed to pornography, usually by someone else, and at the same time, they have traumas or dysfunction happening in their life that makes it so that the real world is an uncomfortable place to be. And they see these images, and their brain is flooded with dopamine, giving them pleasure, and making them seek more pleasure in those image. But it’s vital for them, and it becomes a safe haven for them, because of the chaos in their family, and the discomfort that is happening in their real life. So real life is hard, and fantasy is easy and is pleasure-giving, and pleasure-seeking. And that’s how a classic pornography addiction begins and then perpetuates.Dr. Trish Leigh
