    As a professional in the field, you are probably in a better position to explore this question than I am. Why do you think that the American Psychiatric Association (APA) left sex addictions etc. out of the DSM-5, when there seems to be a lot of science out there like this showing the problems that come from porn/other sexual addictions? Was it purely a political thing (the committee wanted to ignore “sex negative” research like this)? Or are there problems/concerns/questions with the science that is behind this view of pornography? I guess it just seems interesting to me that, if research like this is so conclusive that porn is addictive/problematic, why wasn’t the DSM-5 committee convinced?
