Terry Crews Porn Addiction?

Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Terry Crews has released a series of Facebook videos this week in which he discusses what he calls his “dirty little secret” – a pornography addiction he claims nearly caused him and his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, to split up.

The former NFL player claims his addiction goes back to when he was only 12 years old and caused him to develop a sense of entitlement to sex whenever he wanted it, eventually causing him to cheat on his wife.

In his Facebook confession videos, Crews concludes by saying he believes that pornography addiction is a worldwide problem and that many people have reached out to him for help. He suggests rehab and therapy are effective, as they have been, and, not surprisingly, includes a shoutout to his “Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

With recent statistics suggesting that at least 70% of men and 30% of women watch porn on a regular basis, it may be at minimum a bit far-fetched to imply that watching pornography causes half the people in the world to believe they deserve sex and to cheat on their spouses whenever they want it…especially considering that many of those people even enjoy watching porn together with their partner! However, it does stir up quite a bit of attention around the issue of pornography and some of the potential negative consequences pornography addiction can have on certain individuals.
