This is a highly sensitive topic. @swaraj, I've edited the topic title slightly so that people realize you are asking a sincere question.
@swaraj , I agree with Laura that we need to be careful about introducing sensitive issues here. In general, all addictions are dangerous. Life needs to be lived in moderation with varieties of interests.

laura you are correct people can easily be misguided while they see sensitive issues but this is pure academic issue to learn about the psychology and mental health , social attire , relationships etc. so people are invited to put their views.

Hi Swaraj,
I read a book recently that talks about the negative effects of children watching pornography - from my recollection, it talked about how children created expectations of what sex was about - how to perform and how others should perform and as most pornography is impersonal and often includes violence it is likely be very damaging psychologically for children. This may also be the case for adults. There has also been a lot of discussion that due to current political and media driven based issues, men and women are no longer dating and therefore people are turning to pornography and such for self pleasure and satisfaction, which is leading away form the typical and often fulfilling relationships. I think the most important questions to ask are why are people turning to pornography, what does it fulfill for them, why do they feel they want or need to and what is the underlying cause of that? It may be a fear of intimacy, a fear of the current times, etc and choosing in this way likely is unhealthy and will lead to further problems.
