The real price of porn? With Sexual Addiction Counselor Michael Dinneen and Professor Lynn Comella

Pornography takes up a large chunk of internet activity. According to The Guardian, it is hard to estimate how much money the online porn industry makes, but a conservative estimate puts it at $15 billion.

That makes the porn industry bigger than not only Netflix ($11.7 billion) but also all of Hollywood ($11.1 billion) and Viacom ($13.3 billion). 

What might come as a surprise is the limited knowledge that we have of the psychological effects of internet porn. 

Moreover, within this field, there is a large division between those who believe porn addiction is real and very dangerous and those who believe it is a myth perpetuated by religious groups and a profitable porn addiction industry.

In this episode of The Sociable Podcast, we speak with two individuals with very different opinions on the matter - Michael Dinneen, a Certified Sexual Addiction Counselor and Lynn Comella, an Associate Professor of Gender and Sexuality Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
