Recent studies indicate that the percentage of impotency in our society keeps rising day by day. In each four victims of impotency, one victim is a teenager. According to the Association of Andrology and Sexual Medicine, boys who are 14 or 15 years of age and who watch pornography regularly can suffer from loss of desire and erectile dysfunction when they reach age 25.
According to research published in ‘Psychology Today,’ XXX movies generate a ‘short circuit’ in the channels of pleasure. The brain gets used to the stimulation through porn; therefore, the response in real life becomes increasingly difficult for porn watchers.
Sexual pleasure is born in the brain; therefore, if too much pornography is being watched, the ‘wow factor’ won’t be able to develop itself in real life, as everything will appear ‘less striking.’ It happens like any other addiction. They constantly need the ‘drug,’ which in this case is pornography. Without this stimulus, young addicts find it difficult to maintain an erection.
The extensive development of the Internet has facilitated access to erotic content. In fact, twelve percent of web pages are of pornographic nature.
After many years of watching porn, the brain’s natural response to sexual stimulation numbs itself. Erectile dysfunction caused by pornography abuse is not solved by pills. These act on the cardiovascular system (stimulating blood flow in the penis), but not on segregation of dopamine, which is affected in this case.
According to a study, the solution to solve this issue is to set pornography aside. If this is done, in about three months, a natural sexual response will be achieved. During the early days of ‘abstinence,’ people often experience strong sexual desires, but these decrease if they stick to setting pornography aside. In the next phase, occasional morning erections and desire will gradually be recovered until the person is able to maintain healthy and fulfilling sex in real life.
A study by the University of Granada ensures that Internet sex addiction is a progressive problem. According to this study, the behaviors over time become more frequent, more extreme or both, moving from discovery through experimentation, climbing, compulsion, and eventually ending in despair.
As you can conclude, watching pornography causes individuals to lose sight of their ‘erotic picture’ and confuse desire with momentum, but as previously mentioned, there’s a solution, but only the ones who are willing to regain the ‘real life picture’ have more hope of making their obsession a thing of the past.
