If something seems amiss in your sexual relationship with your partner, it's possible that he is compulsively using internet porn or sexual connection with others in a destructive way. There are warning signs you might see if your partner is having a problem with sexually compulsive behavior:
1. He may spend a lot of private time on his computer, his phone or at work. Working long hours could be a cover for compulsive viewing of Internet porn. When you notice your partner is on the computer, he may turn it off or flip to another page. He may set up secret or hidden email accounts. He also may hide his cell phone to avoid your detection of his phone calls or text messages
2. In general, his demeanor may change. You may notice that he's acting differently. He may become more secretive, private, unreliable, critical or irritable. He might not be as social as he used to be and there may be unexplained absences. You may feel like you just don't get straight answers anymore.
3. You may experience a lack of connection and intimacy. Your partner may not seem available to you and you may feel he's avoiding you. He seems tuned out or lost.
4. Your sexual interactions with your partner may change. Your partner may become uncharacteristically, demanding or rough sexually. He may require more and more stimulation or he may become unresponsive sexually and cease initiating sex. He may develop a preference for masturbation.
5. His relationship to his body may change. He may become overly concerned with his penis — with caring for, touching, adjusting his pants, or exposing his anatomy. 3 Mistakes Women Make When They Suspect Cheating
