Publisher's Summary

Technology has significantly changed our world. Sexual imagery and encounters can now be accessed anywhere, anytime, using portable electronic devices. Users can generate a stream of graphic pornography, a wide variety of virtual sexual activities, and casual, anonymous, or paid-for sexual encounters with a click or a tap. Simply put, we have greater access to highly stimulating sexual content, and potential sexual partners, with much less built-in accountability. Porn addicts are especially vulnerable to the lure of digital technology and the seemingly endless array of stimulation it provides. Research suggests that cyber-porn addicts spend at least 11 or 12 hours per week online viewing porn.
Today, all forms of sex addiction are technology driven - from porn websites to webcams to casual sex hook-up apps found on smartphones. Sex addicts organize their lives around the pursuit of sexual activity with self or others, spending inordinate amounts of time viewing and masturbating to porn or planning, pursuing, and engaging in sex acts. At the same time, they neglect important relationships, work, and personal responsibilities. Overwhelming feelings of guilt, shame, and remorse invade when the acting out ends.
While it's complicated, recovery is possible. Always Turned On shows listeners how to turn those temptations off while providing practical long-term solutions for recovery.

Excellent overall view

I thought this book did an excellent job at outlining the overall problem with online addiction. It lays out the scope of the problem and puts it in context. It recommends avenues and resources for help. From this book I moved to Pema Chodron's GETTING UNSTUCK which I rate at five stars. Taken in the context of addiction, Chodren's book offers real world solutions via meditation practices. This is something I've tried in the past and was not successful at, but this book made all the difference, got me over the edge and into practice. From there I have gone to THE TRANSFORMATIONAL POWER OF FASTING. Seen in the light of a spiritual journey, this book helps put addiction in perspective, and shows real spiritual and physical gifts available to those who really want to push through. So that's three reviews in one – but I make the connections here to show you a path that has worked for me and doesn't leave you at the dead end of understanding the problem, but offers a series of solutions.
