Porn Induced ED

Porn Induced ED

If you use medications or other methods of therapy like penis pumps for erectile dysfunction(ED), here’s something you might want to consider.  Regularly watching porn could be making your symptoms worse.

Yep, that’s right. The constant use of pornography is potentially the underlying cause of maintaining a satisfying erection before and during intimacy with your partner.

Many men assume their lack of an erection is due to issues with anxiety, lower levels of testosterone or that they are no longer sexually interested in their partner. However, new research indicates that men who discontinue using Internet porn, often reverse their symptoms of ED. Studies show that when porn is frequently viewed, the brain becomes accustomed to that level of stimulation and perpetual variety.  Men become programmed to that level of arousal. In other words, it becomes a habit, and real, regular intimacy can become affected.

Individuals who are most likely to experience Porn Induced Erectile Dysfunction can expect the following:

  • Trouble reaching an orgasm with an actual partner
  • Lack of an erection during masturbation without porn
  • Delayed ejaculation
  • Decreased sensitivity of the penis
  • Previously watched porn is no longer arousing
  • Lack of an erection during intercourse
  • Erection or partial increase in an erection occurs only during climax
  • Medications have no effect

Brain chemicals are responsible for the dysfunction, but a man’s habits directly affect these chemicals. Dopamine, for instance, is responsible for controlling how much pleasure we experience, but it is also responsible for emotional responses. Release of dopamine is triggered when the desired level of arousal has been met. If a man excessively watches porn, chances are that’s the only thing that will get him aroused. So, when sexual activity is attempted with an actual person, the required level for arousal has not been met, so dopamine is not released. If dopamine is not released,the brain will not signal the rest of the body that it’s experiencing pleasure. The end result is erectile dysfunction.
