Sebastián: Fighter & Recovering Porn Addict

Trigger warning: Graphic descriptions of sex acts and porn videos are discussed during this conversation.

Sebastian is a Fighter from Madrid, Spain, who has been struggling with pornography from a young age. He was eight when he was first exposed to porn when he and his friends searched for it out of curiosity, and by the time he was 12 years old, it became a compulsive habit that escalated into more hardcore genres. Sebastian discovered that he was struggling to perform sexually with partners in real life without porn, so he started to research how pornography affects the brain and sexual performance. In this episode, Sebastian talks about how he’s tried to break free from pornography several times and how he’s still actively working to break free completely. Listen to Sebastian give his honest (and, at times, triggering) account of how porn has negatively impacted him, and how understanding the research on its negative effects and the industry's ties to sex trafficking has helped in his ongoing battle to quit porn for good.
