Porn Induced ED (Part Two)

Porn Induced ED (Part Two)

Previously we mentioned how porn induced sexual dysfunction mainly affects men. This is normally evidenced in what is referred to as erectile dysfunction or ED when it occurs in men. The extreme levels of arousal experienced while viewing porn cause the body to become over-stimulated and accustomed to that level of excitement. Dopamine signals to the brain that arousal is occurring and is only subsequently released when the same level of excitement is reached as previously experienced. If this doesn’t happen, sexual arousal doesn’t occur. This is frequent with porn users and becomes a problem when the individual is engaged in sexual activity with a partner. However, it is an equally unpleasant experience for both men and women. Symptoms Women are not exempt from porn induced sexual dysfunction. These type symptoms are usually long-term issues.

  • Low sex drive – This will be evidenced by fewer sexual fantasies and a tendency to detour from sexual activities.
  • Pain is experienced during sexual intercourse – This is due to the lower levels of estrogen produced from a lower sex drive. You should also call your doctor if this occurs since it could be attributed to other issues such as: vaginal infections or sexually transmitted diseases.
  • There will also be an unusual decrease in the level of sexual arousal – Sexual invitations or suggestions are non-affective. The idea of sexual activity also becomes boring.

Porn is frequently used by women to achieve extreme levels of sexual arousal and as a way to avoid worrying about being critiqued about body imperfections and to maintain a level of privacy. Living arrangements with a partner or between couples with little privacy can cause an individual to have a reduced level of sexual arousal. Some women feel pressured from individuals closest to them to perform sexual activities. As a result, there may be a decreased level of sexual intensity or interest. The result usually ends with the individual seeking pornography as a way to create and or maintain privacy and control. Treatment There are ways to treat sexual dysfunction in women. In most cases, improved conditions can occur by treating the physiological or psychological source. Here are a few additional ways to treat it:

  • If you are a frequent porn user – watch less or no porn at all. Find other ways to become sexually stimulated with your partner.
  • Become educated – The first step is to realize that it is occurring. Understanding how your body works, and focusing on how to deal with personal anxieties concerning your sexual activity is important.
  • Focus more on your partner (or a real person) than an imagined sexual porn-partner. This will help re-program your body to respond to physical touch from another human being rather than a cyber-surrogate.
  • Purposely create additional fantasies of an actual person. You can even discuss this with a willing partner. Doing this with someone will also help with anxieties about sexual performance and help with privacy issues as well.

For more information concerning sexual dysfunction and ways to treat it, contact your doctor. And, as always, our helpful agents at Aeroflow are ready to speak with you in confidentiality concerning available products.
