Top Five Warning Signs of Internet Pornography Addiction
A few months ago, BBC Newsbeat released a report on the unprecedented number of young men seeking help for erection difficulties. An NHS expert explained that there was no biological cause of their sexual problem and the most likely cause was excessive porn consumption. Meanwhile, a growing number of research papers have been published providing both the evidence and an explanation for the link between sexual problems and porn use. In total, 16 studies have been carried out that explain how repeated exposure to high level of sexual stimuli raises the arousal threshold and leads, initially to problems with erections, and then to low libido. Regrettably there is still little public awareness of this which means that many men do not make the connection between their porn use and their partnered sexual difficulties. Indeed, initially some may try to address the problem by increasing their porn use and recalling images during love making to boost their arousal. But this just leads to increasing the threshold further and making the problem worse.
Men can have the risk of sexual dysfunction if in case they have porn addiction. Get to know more details about it, here. The American Urological Association has surveyed a pornographic viewing habit for men and women to track the physical problems that may arise due to this addiction. The research shows that women aged 20 to 40, who are habituated to watch porn did not suffer from sexual dysfunction.
Working as a researcher on porn, I've noticed growing concern that pornography is killing our erections. The slide into pliability, headlines shout, is apparently due to a single factor: our easy access to internet smut. Last week, broadcaster Alison Mau claimed one unlucky lad had "essentially destroyed the nerve pathways from his brain to his penis". It sounds alarming, except that my understanding is that the only way masturbating to pornography could have destroyed these 'nerves' is if he had ripped his penis off of his own body. But is there such a thing as porn dependence, and has any substantial research actually linked it to erectile dysfunction?
