She's right.

It's important to be compassionate towards those who struggle against this temptation. It's easy for women to speak out against it because most women don't even experience the temptation. However many men(and women) do experience the temptation and it can be a difficult battle for men(and women) to conquer. Porn stimulates chemicals in the brain which means porn can be a chemical addiction. Many people who have never faced this challenge assume those who are struggling are just being selfish. However the reality is that this temptation is a very difficult challenge and it takes time and effort to overcome. It's important to be compassionate and charitable. For LDS people I always recommend Preach My Gospel chapter 6, the "Charity" section. Please don't judge others who are facing temptations you haven't faced, fighting battles you've never fought, and are experiencing struggles that you haven't experienced. I emphasize that I'm not justifying those who engage in immoral behavior, but so many people are scared to try to get help because of fear of embarrassment and being judged. Let's help them by being charitable.
