On the face of it, bubbly Oghosa Ovienrioba is a 22-year-old with a bright future ahead of her. A pretty and intelligent Law Graduate, Oghosa is also a popular vlogger to boot. But Oghosa used to hide a dark secret: she was addicted to online pornography.


It was an addiction that first kicked in when she was just 14 years old and sneaked a look at online porn on her computer. And from the ages of 18 to 21, she would lock herself in a dark room & watch adult movies endlessly.

At her worst point, Oghosa would masturbate between five and six times a day – and watched a total of over 400 hours of adult material



But now Oghosa has become a hero to other sufferers after bravely speaking out about her porn addiction on YouTube – in a series that has amassed over 800,000 hits.

Oghosa says, ‘When I uploaded that video in February, I had no idea how phenomenal the response would be. I received hundred of heartwarming comments from women who were going through the same thing for years. Lots of people don’t think girls can suffer a porn addiction but it’s a problem for both sexes. I hope I can help others out there – talking about your problem is the first step.’

Oghosa, who began watching online pornography in 2006, says that it was dangerously easy for her to access.
She said: ‘I was 14 years old when I went to find porn on the internet. It was out of curiosity and it was just a simple Google search for me to get hold of an adult movie.

‘When I first watched it, my reaction was shock. But gradually over time, that shock becomes excitement and I would use any porn that I could get my hands on.’
Her habit started to become a worrying obsession by age 16 when she began watching adult movies as often as she could.
She said: ‘I was watching it so much that I started to get bored by the “normal” soft porn movies.
‘I wasn’t getting the buzz that I felt when I first saw it – in fact I was almost desensitised to that content.

‘I went from watching soft pornography to dodgier stuff to get the kick I needed.’
Oghosa’s addiction briefly stopped when she had a six-month relationship with a boy at age 18.
But when she started university and found herself single again, the downward spiral of her addiction recommenced.

She said: ‘I was at a university and alone in a new city. I guess it was a trigger and I just went downhill from there. 
‘For a period of two to three years, I was watching porn on a daily basis and sometimes masturbating over six times per day. It was all I could think about.’
