Abstract

The Target Article by Grubbs, Perry, Wilt, and Reid (2018)
addresses an important and timely topic regarding problems that individuals may experience related to pornography use. Grubbs et al. argue that there are individuals who self-identify as being addicted to pornography without having objectively dysregulated use. Grubbs et al. suggest a model of pornography problems due to moral incongruence (PPMI) that “may assist in interpreting pornography addiction literature, with a specific focus on how moral incongruence— broadly, the experience of engaging in activities that violate one’s deeply held moral values—may lead to self-perceived problems stemming from pornography use.”
