The Psychology of Pornography
This presentation will look at understanding why persons of both sexes engage in pornography, and how it affects their relationships. The particular emphasis here is on matrimony and the wounds pornography inflicts, even when one spouse is unaware of the use of pornography. What is the draw? How does pornography connect with other mental health disorders? What is its psychological function and how does it affect marital intimacy? What about when pornography is engaged in together by a couple? Why and how is this still harmful to their relationship? What are the underlying areas that need developing and healing for a person to overcome it? What happens when these are not specifically addressed and the person just stops cold turkey? Are there still risks? If so, what are they? Why do partners often feel betrayed when they discover their spouse has been using pornography? What are the necessary ingredients for the traumatized spouse to be healed? What is the porn-engaging partner’s responsibility and task in the healing process? What controls over the situation can be attained?
These and other questions will be addressed by psychologist and practicing therapist, Dr. Chiara Simeone-DiFrancesco.
