Does your partner spend excessive amount of time on the Internet? Has he or she become less social as compared to before? Well, then you may have to stay a bit alert for these are some of the signs indicating your partner has slipped into the porn trap.
What constitutes a porn addiction or compulsion is a hotly contested issue, and therefore knowing the symptoms is extremely important, reports Fox News.
1. Your partner is not as social as he used to be
He has little interest in socializing with you or making time for others, including his family. He is excusing himself from activities, has unexplained absences, and is not able to account for his time.
2. Your partner lacks interest in sex or is sexually unresponsive
A decrease in physical affection and non-sexual touch is among the signs. If you have sex, it's because you are the one initiating it. Your partner is having trouble becoming sexually aroused.
3. Your partner is being uncharacteristically demanding or rough during sex.
You're pressurized to engage in sexual activities that are either physically or emotionally uncomfortable. Your partner is using atypical sexual language, seems to be objectifying you and he has no qualms about it.

Your lover has become emotionally distant during sex. You're starting to feel sexually rejected or neglected. In or out of the bedroom, you and your partner can no longer describe yourselves as emotionally intimate.
5. Your partner has started to nit-pick your appearance.
Your partner seems more and more concerned about your appearence, and if you're sexually attractive 'enough.' He might make cutting remarks about your weight or shape. He's also making insensitive sexual comments, which make you feel like a sex object.
. You feel like you're no longer getting straight answers from your lover.
You suspect that much of what is being said these days are white lies. He's defensive when asked about porn use, yet you are finding evidence of hiding, lying, and secretive behavior, including porn materials you didn't know about.
