Porn and gaming have long been considered issues that only affect guys. Disclaimer: Fight the New Drug does not educate on the harmful effects of video gaming obsessions or addictions.

Pornography & gaming

Just listen to girl gamer Erica Garza, in her recent article for Timeabout her introduction to both as a young tween:. One was playing video games.

The other was watching soft-core porn. The two are intertwined in my memory.

Why girls are becoming as obsessed with gaming and porn as their male peers

Both worlds were irresistible to me as a tween. But as compelling as they were, they were equally isolating because of my gender. It seemed to me that video games and porn were intended for boys, not me.

This sense of not feeling like I belonged forced me to engage in secret—which proved to be a pathway to unhealthy use. Think about almost every movie or book out there that depicts a modern teenage boy—a lot of them show young men blasting aliens or looking at pictures of women online as typical daily habits, right? Excessive and compulsive consumption of pornography or video games comes from a pretty similar source issue: people can often rather spend time focusing on screens, building connections in a fantasy world rather than spending energy and facing possibly rejection in the real world.

Unsurprisingly creators of porn—and, sometimes, video games—realize the connection and capitalize off of it. You may not have noticed, but most of the research done around porn or video games is specifically related to young men, rather than young women.

Women are increasingly becoming part of the gaming community, too, though it has been a male-dominated field for a long time. Women in games are frequently portrayed as sex objects or damsels in distress, which can be even further isolating for female gamers.

Failing to acknowledge that these issues affect women, too, can lead to even more problems. We get letters from girls as young as middle school on the regular, looking for help with tackling their porn issue.

Like porn, some popular video games combine violence and sexism in order to objectify and mistreat women on the screen or at least objectify them for entertainment. In some games like Grand Theft Autoyou can hit the female characters—usually strippers or prostituted persons—and are rewarded with points or extra health. Compulsive behaviors, lack of empathy, objectification, exploitation, and shame are far from foreign to women.

Other universal issues? Loneliness and isolation, both of which can be fueled by obsession with sexually explicit fantasy worlds built apart from real relationships or real life.

Bottom line: people need other people, which is why we fight for real relationships. Fight the New Drug, Inc. Learn More.
