Thanks for everyone's replies - it has indeed been helpful to read this thread. And trust me, I do have my own issues with my snooping. My original reason for doing so was to see correspondence between b/f and ex-lover. (I forgot to mention in earlier posts that his ex is and was a married woman - so secrecy would be high on their list of priorities) I wanted to know that it was innocent emails and I would immediately uninstall the software - I still will.
I had no desire, originally, to see how much porn he was viewing. I knew from walking in on him before that he visited porn sites.....I just never had any idea how often and for how long at a time. And also, now, what it would seem that he is searching for. Of course, I realize that the search words used for the newsgroups subscription could mean anything. But then, I have to wonder, after performing the same search myself and seeing a young girl named 'Lolita'......and finding this name also used as a search term. Trust me, I didn't want to believe it either! There was another search along the same lines....but for books by David Hamilton, who is famous for his nude photos of adolescent girls.
Now, I have no idea what all this means. Maybe it is as some say, and only fantasies. I have to wonder though if his porn viewing has become boring to him as he has spent so many hours at it and he is now needing something 'different' for his viewing pleasure? I have read so many articles online stating that porn addiction is just like any other addiction, whether it be drinking, drugs, overeating, whatever.....and after a while you are no longer satisfied - it takes more and more to please you.
