“Pornography consumption was not linked to decreased relationship or sexual satisfaction when masturbation frequency was controlled for. “I’d want clarification in that. There is a difference between a casual user or even a couple who casually use together versus an individual who spends hours a day every day mapping their arousal states toward pixels in a screen. Many people who struggle with crippling porn addiction have reported porn induced erectile dysfunction. An inability to achieve an erection in the presence of a partner at least sufficient enough to engage in sex acts. It’s a thing. I don’t think that this study went that far into extreme dosage levels of exposure to porn.

It's possible some people just aren't fullfilled in their relationships. I've stressed out over ED when it turned out to just be bad sexual chemistry 🤣

I'm kinky.

I like kinky sex.

I like hot kinky sex.

I like sexual exploration.

Just a word of wisdom to people out there. It's not superficial to leave a relationship over bad sex.

This is true. One of the reasons “waiting till marriage” is t a good idea anymore. Bad sexually chemistry is a thing and people shouldn’t stay in those relationships

This is not true for those with a serious porn addiction. It's like saying drinking alcohol does not cause people to lose their jobs - it does only in excess.

Read the details. It says when controlled for frequency of masturbation. So if you jerk it a lot then it does cause erectile dysfunction

That was honestly a consideration?? This is my first of hearing of this

You'll hear it from conservatives and nofap weirdos when anything related to sex or relationships comes up.

It really does mess with my head though and I’m neither of those things. Since I quit watching porn my sex drive is way higher and I do find it easier to get an erection.

It helps some people, hurts other people, there is no scientific backing for moderate porn viewing being negative in general.

>A 2014 article emphasizes that scientific research rarely discusses so-called “pornography addiction,” or its suggested role in ED. Yet the term is common on Internet forums and other non-clinical sources, and may even be used in treatment. This supposed link between erectile dysfunction and pornography has fueled a lucrative industry, despite there being little scientific evidence to support the link.

>Men who feel guilty about their use of pornography may struggle with ED due to this guilt. In this way, a belief that pornography is wrong or is linked to ED can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Yes. I tried to tell my girlfriend that watching pornography for 6 hours a day was not the reason that I could not have sex with her. Vindicated!

Right??? How is that even a thought??? Couples watch porn together. People get aroused. End scene.

really ? mind-blowing. whats next, video games are not causing mass shootings ? masturbation is not making you blind or letting hairs grow on your hand ?

I can test to the fact that porn is bad for you and not healthy to your mental well-being. Since getting away from porn, I've been able to have a much more fulfilling relationship with the love of my life.

I find it's most common when I'm not attracted to the other person

Fixation on a certain thing can lead to wanting that and the rest is less intriguing. Personal experience.

So it's not porn. It's jerking off too much..

That makes sense
