ASSESSING PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION (Revised and Updated March 2011)
The "Assessing Pornography Addiction" test has been created to help individuals who are struggling with pornography. This assessment tool was developed by Dr. Kevin B. Skinner, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. He has been helping individuals and couples whose lives have been changed by pornography for many years. The primary goal of this assessment is to help individuals assess their level of involvement in pornography so that they can receive specific guidance based on your level of involvement. If you want to identify how pornography is influencing you and find guidance on steps you can take toward your recovery, this is a great test to take.

When you take and complete this free test, you will receive:

a. An introduction describing your level of pornography involvement

b. Recommendations of what you can do right now to get started in creating change.

c. Ideas of where you can learn more and where to receive the best help based upon your level of involvement in pornography.

d. Graphs describing your level of involvement in pornography, sex*, and other addictive behaviors.* Starting March 2011 two new graphs will be available (loneliness and happiness). You will be able to see how you compare to the general population.

In an effort to understand specific individuals needs there are two separate tests. There is one for individuals who are in a committed relationship and one for singles.

In a committed relationship (e.g. married, cohabiting, separated)

Please Note: This test can also be used by counselors, bishops/clergymen, and family members who want to help individuals who are addicted to pornography. If you want to help someone who is addicted to pornography we suggest that you read the assessment questions and familiarizing yourself with the responses. If your partner, spouse, or child is involved in viewing pornography, this tool can help you identify their level of involvement. If you don't know the answer to some of the questions have them take the test and discuss the results with them. You will learn what questions to ask them (just by reading through the questions) and you will receive ideas in the "recommendation' section of the results on what treatment is recommended based upon their answers.

In an effort to better understand how pornography is influencing you and others, additional scales have been included for research purposes only. These scales include:

  • DASS21-- Developed by: Lovibond, S.H. & Lovibond, P.F
  • Subjective Happiness Scale (SHS) --Developed by: Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ph.D.
  • Satisfaction with Life Scale (SLS) --Developed by: Ed Diener, Ph.D.
  • UCLA Loneliness Scale (V3) --Developed by: Daniel Russell, Ph.D.
Your personal scores will be combined with others who take these assessments and will be used for research purposes.

* Optional Questions
