The objective of research, led by Dr Gomathi Sitharthan at the University of Sydney's Graduate Program in Sexual Health, is to study how porn affects people's work, finances and relationships.Viewing porn online becomes a major problem only when people become so preoccupied that they spend 16 to 18 hours a day doing nothing else but watching porn, with serious impacts on relationships, work, studies, and finance," the Australian quoted Dr Sitharthan, as saying.

She went on: "In recent years we have seen increasing numbers of clients coming to counselling practices with online porn addictions.

"They come from all walks of life: students, teachers, lawyers, health practitioners and priests.

"Often they will come to counseling with another problem, and the underlying problem of addiction to internet porn may come out after two or three sessions."

Dr Sitharthan added: "The sensitive nature of this issue means many people find it very hard to talk about."

According to Dr Sitharthan, the increasing addiction of Internet porn was a result of its easy accessibility.
