It is very common for partners to have different sexual needs and what is excessive or addiction to one partner may not be for the other. Use of sexually explicit material is also highly individualistic and becomes a problem when it compromises the relationship. The first step is to communicate about these 2 factors and try to identify the core problem. You can start by introducing the topic of addictions generally and different sexual needs. Try and keep conversations factual and make an effort to really listen to the other party. If the partner is willing to get help, be supportive and consult with a psychologist who has experience in this field.
