Alcoholism is a disease that can be treated, like any addiction, and pornography is no more harmful than playing videogames or reading pulp novels.
Addiction to sex and porn are a thing. And pornography (live-action or fictional) has been known to cause a whole lot of detrimental effects, such as raising tolerance to imagery and causing the viewer to seek more extreme things because they can no longer be aroused by anything else. Hell, you can go on any fanfiction site, pick out a sex story, read the comments, and have your notions of humanity rather quickly destroyed by people (usually an overwhelming majority of those commenting) that appear to genuinely hold some rather terrifying notions of what constitutes consent.
However, that's all a pretty far cry from a healthy and supportive relationship with someone of the same sex.
It gets transmuted to blood anyway, so what does it matter what it was before you swallowed it?
Only if you're in a denomination that ascribes to transubstantiation. Most Protestant strains don't. Predominantly American denominations like Methodism believe the communion bread/wine reflect symbolism and/or a spiritual presence
but reject transubstantiation.
The doctrine is mostly local to Catholicism and Orthodox.
