A new non-profit website called Feed The Right Wolf  promises free help for people seeking treatment for a porn or sex addiction. It offers written recovery courses—available through PDF or e-mail—to train addicts to better control their urges and impulses, and to give them the tools to heal relationships that may have been damaged due to their behaviors. "I created the recovery course from my own personal experience, so I know exactly what our potential clients are going through," says founder Alex Wolf, a self-professed pornography addict. "It's written in plain English, making it easier to understand and follow." According to the National Association of Sexual Addiction Problems, approximately 6% of Americans—that's 14 million people—are sexual addicts. It's also been reported by Family Safe Media that porn accounts for 1.3 million websites and 260 million pages on the internet. The porn industry rakes in $13 billion annually in the US and $97 billion worldwide.
