    Porn Makes Men Impotent

    A common situation we find among men who are regular porn users, is they have increasing difficulty becoming aroused by their spouses. Many men admit that pornography initially helped them get more excited during sex, but the longer they used porn, the more it had the opposite effect. To get aroused during sex, they had to fantasize with the images and scenarios they had viewed in pornography–like acting out a porn script. Some tried to get their spouse to imitate porn stars, because the “same old sex” just didn’t produce the rush. While this is more than enough to seriously damage a relationship, it gets worse.
    Like a drug addict, the porn user’s brain habituates and no longer gets high on the fantasy images and kinky sex techniques that once turned him on. So, he seeks different images–more graphic, more variety, harder core, etc. He may try to manipulate his spouse into even more bizarre sex acts. Or, he may simply go through the basic physical motions, but any real intimacy and connection is missing. Eventually, for many porn users, sexual intimacy with a spouse becomes infrequent or abandoned altogether, replaced by the more stimulating rush of their porn drug.
    The tragic irony in all of this is that while pornographers boast about pushing the envelope by introducing new, harder themes, what they don’t reveal is that they must do this because their customers build up a tolerance to the content. Thus, over time, the porn user becomes “impotent” in two ways:


    1. Getting aroused becomes increasingly difficult without continually altering the pornography diet. For many, arousal with a spouse becomes problematic or even near impossible. It’s very telling when Internet porn sites are filled with ads for Viagra-type drugs to treat impotence, or “erectile dysfunction.” This misleading term implies that these men have a problem with their genitals , but the problem is with a brain and nervous system continually habituating to a powerful drug–always needing more to get the same rush.
    2. But erectile dysfunction is only one small part of the “male impotence” brought on by porn use. Far more debilitating is “intimacy impotence” –the increasing inability of the man to connect, bond and truly be”one” with his wife–to enjoy full intimacy which is physical, emotional and spiritual. Instead, he opts for “self-sex” in the company of cold, electronically reproduced fantasy images.

    Regardless of the sensational hype of pornography portraying the ultimate “macho stud” surrounded by his swooning sex goddesses, the stark and painful reality–the real truth is pornography makes men impotent!

    Sadly porn has not only and influence physically as mentioned but physiological as well. It degrades not only society but relationships as well between a man an woman. No good wife should and would ever be able to compete with what they expose you too through pornographic videos and images. It is the down fall of many relationships and can hurt you wife in more ways then one.
    Thank you for this post.

    Anything taken to extremes is not good.

    If it enhances a couples bedroom time then it is ok.

    If a bloke just sits at his computer by himself hour after hour, day after day, then not ok.

    I've always thought moderation in all things to be a very good philosphy. I was researching something else entirely different and stumbled on this.

    I know! I was trying to be funny with the reply. Hard to do that on the internet. And if you didn't do it somebody else would have. In fact, now that I see how I set myself up for the kill, I would have been disappointed if you didn't do it.

    I was doomed from a young age. My much older sister lived right behind our property for a few years when I was in my early teens and her boyfriend kept a nice selection/stack of playboy, penthouse, hustler and a few other magazines; long before the days of the internet. I spent many an hour over there "reading". Before you ask NO my sister was not home. I had a key to her place and she did not get home until late.

    My poor little mind got corrupted early. lol Yes I actually read I think most ever article and story in the 50 or so magazines over a couple of years. I can even still remember a lot of the pictures/models/images. lol

    When the internet got rolling and soon discovered newgroups and wow, it was like a gold mind of porn. Talk about over stimulation. lol I have to agree, everything in moderation. It can defiantly get addicting and easy to spend literally hours surfing, downloading and watching vids. Lucky I was single but it also kept me from getting out into the real world a lot.

    Luckily I recognize addiction and can self diagnose so I quit and now only view things in frequently. Variety is still nice/fun sometimes when it's appropriate.

    In other words I agree with the article. It defiantly can be damaging to a relationship if abused like most anything.
