Addiction to pornography may impair a man's sexual performance

Addiction to pornography may impair a man's sexual performance

Contrary to popular belief, addiction to pornography may be destroying the sex lives of many men. According to the results of the study presented at the annual meeting of the American Urological Association in Boston, men who are addicted to pornography are more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction and tend to be less satisfied with sex.

For analysis, the researchers interviewed 312 men, ages 20 to 40, who had visited a San Diego urology clinic for treatment. They found that 3.4 percent of men said they would rather masturbate with pornography than have sex.

The principal investigator and team urologist at the San Diego Naval Medical Center, Dr. Matthew Christman, revealed that his team found a "The rates of natural causes of erectile dysfunction in this age range are extremely low, so the increase in erectile dysfunction we have seen over time for this group needs to be explained "We believe that the use of pornography may be the key to this puzzle, but our data do not suggest that it is the only explanation."

Data indicated that 1 in 4 men said they watched pornography at least once a week, while approximately 21% said they watched pornography three to five times a week. In addition, 5% of men admit to seeing pornography six to 10 times a week and 4.3% said they watch more than 11 times a week.

According to Matthew Christman, sexual behavior activates the same reward system in the brain that drugs activate, such as cocaine and methamphetamine. "Internet pornography specifically has shown itself to be a super-stimulant of this system, which may be due to the ability to automatically and instantly select new and more sexually exciting images," he said. Internet can increase a person's "tolerance," as does narcotics, "explained Matthews. However, researchers claim that pornography does not negatively affect sexual performance, it can actually have a positive impact when used in moderation.

Dr. Joseph Alukal, director of reproductive health at New York University, admits that Visual stimulation will often increase sexual arousal in both men and women. But he warns, "When most of your time is spent watching and masturbating for pornography, you are likely to become less interested in real-world sexual encounters."

Researchers also note that one of the reasons why pornography probably leads to impotence in younger, less experienced men is because it can set the tone for unrealistic expectations. "They believe that they should be able to do what happens in these films, and when they fail to end up generating an anxiety," said Joseph Alukal. In addition, researchers looked at women between the ages of 20 and 40 on habits pornographic, but found no connection with sexual dysfunction.
