What about the happy healthy couples that enjoy watching porn together? Is it still all narcissistic me me me?
Or do you/all think that doesn't even exist?
(or gay even) male who says he doesn't is lying

I think the OP is talking about people who are addicted to porn in a very radical sense like watching it all day and night. These people are so addicted to it, the addiction controls and ruins their lives. I don't think this applies to most people.
Therefore I wouldn't say porn is dangerous. Maybe taking a career in the adult film industry could be considered dangerous with the risk of STD's or HIV. But watching porn, not dangerous, unless you are driving.
Just thinking...does anyone think scientific data on porn addiction is helpful to understand future relationships with AI or robots? I don't see the industry shutting down, I see legalization and rights actually. I think the movie Her was spot on for something in the future. There will definitely be an app like that one day, for adults, and it will be addicting.

You're telling me. Porn definitely is more dangerous now that it's all over the internet. And now I am positive I am one of their victims.
So I go on the internet just tying to look at the occasional girl in daisy dukes. And then one day daisy dukes wasn't enough! One thing lead to another. Now I'm seeing a shrink 3 times a week to overcome a debilitating Circus Clown Fetish. I just can't get enough of women in circus clown attire. And believe me chicks that dress up as circus clowns just cause and they don't work in a circus or at kids birthdays are dangerous. I've been chased down the street at 4am plenty of times by some crazy women dressed as a clowns all because I needed my fix.
JK. In all honesty. Internet porn has probably refined my tastes not lowered them and made me look for more and more extreme ways to get off. Used to simply like nude women pics. Now I actually prefer dressed women. A nordstrom catalog will get me more interested these days than pure porn. Especially the fall/winter textiles. I'm a weirdo I guess.

I have to confess to watching porn a lot lately. It's mostly because I am now single and haven't had sex in a while. While it is doing the job it's no where near better than the real thing. When I am no longer single again I will be able to drop it much easier than it is for most drug addicts to do the same. I have many Drug addicts in my family which gives me intimate experience with the devastation it creates.
