Back From The Borderline

BPD and porn use - is it destroying your brain and your chance at real intimacy? Billie Eilish thinks so.

20-year-old singer-songwriter Billie Eilish opened up about the devastating impact having access to hardcore pornography (as early as age 11) had on the way she came to view herself and her relationship to her own sexuality on a 2021 interview with Howard Stern.


In today’s episode, we’ll unpack Billie’s comments and discuss the damaging effects easy access to porn online has had on millennials and Gen-Z, and how those who identify with symptoms of borderline personality disorder are potentially even more at risk of being negatively impacted.


I also provide a preview of this week’s Premium Access episode, where I react to a prominent YouTuber who creates content for people recovering from what she calls “borderline abuse.”
