Dr Olivarius pens Telegraph op-ed

Dr Olivarius has written an op-ed for the Telegraph titled: “Pornosexuals: Why are so many young people choosing porn over sex?” In it, she warns of the dangers of becoming addicted to pornography, to the point of preferring to watch pornography over having sex with a person in real life.

She writes, “To call pornosexuality a sexual orientation may anger some - it is a learned behaviour that fundamentally does not open any doors to sustained human pleasure or fulfilment. It is also profoundly isolating and - for its victims - no more sustaining than any other addiction. And it is just a click away.”
