WHERE ONE OR MORE ARE GATHERED – 

Feb. 2021 – The pattern of failure to control intense sexual impulses or urges and resulting repetitive sexual behavior is manifested over an extended period of time (e.g., 6 months or more), and causes marked distress or significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. 

Distress that is entirely related to moral judgments and disapproval about sexual impulses, urges, or behaviors is not sufficient to meet this requirement.

So in these respects, sex and porn addiction are quite similar. That said, not all sex addicts struggle with pornography, and not all porn addicts struggle with other forms of sexual behavior.
