If you haven’t already noticed, there is hot discussion going on whether watching adult videos or pornography causes erectile dysfunction.
This is partly because, as adult videos and pornography have become more easily accessible because of the internet, the number of men being affected by erectile dysfunction has increased, especially younger men.
And many anti-pornography groups are putting the two together and making a lot of effort to try to prove that there is a link between the two.
So let’s talk about that question.
Does Watching Adult Videos or Pornography Cause Erectile Dysfunction?
Well, that’s a very good question.
You see, the research is mixed.
And that’s probably because erectile dysfunction (ED) is not caused by one single factor.
In fact, there are a number of physical, mental and emotional reasons why you may suffer from ED including;
- Poor body image…
- Alcohol, drug and tobacco use…
- Use of prescription drugs…
- Low testosterone…
- High blood pressure…
- Multiple sclerosis…
- Heart disease…
- Relationship issues…
- Low self esteem…
Now this is certainly not a complete list of things which can cause or contribute to ED.
But I’m sure you get the picture.
So, if you watch adult videos you may find that it increases your libido, but someone else may find it causes ED or makes it worse.
Adult videos can affect everyone differently.
Consider these two scenarios; Tom has been married for 30 years.
Over the years stress and age have taken their toll on his sex life. And although he still loves his wife dearly he has problems getting it up.
He has also become very familiar with his wife and just does find her as attractive any more. So, Tom adds some adult videos to their bedroom play and the pornography helps ignite that spark that has been missing.
And he can get hard again because of the extra variety that the adult videos give him.
Now let’s look at a different situation. Dan is 22.
He is single because he finds it difficult to talk to women, and technically, he is still a virgin. Now Dan has a high sex drive and needs to satisfy his desire.
So he watches adult videos every day and sometimes two or three times in a day. After some time he finds that this excessive self pleasure has caused some problems.
He can’t seem to keep an erection for as long, and sometimes he just can’t get an erection. The continuous repeated ejaculation has put too much demand on his body to produce the sex hormones it needs to function sexually.
And he has become desensitized to the graphic images that are in the adult videos.
They are two very different outcomes aren’t they?
Well that’s an example of why so many studies are weak in showing that adult videos cause erectile dysfunction.
Personally, I watch adult movies with my wife sometimes to spice things up a bit and it certainly helps keep things interesting.
But if you are having problems and you watch a lot of pornography, then maybe you are losing a connection with the reality of sex with a romantic partner.
In that case, maybe you should cut back on the sex films and try something else to help you get hard again.
So, are you are having problems with sexual dysfunction but you don’t want to watch adult videos? Or maybe you have a problem because you have been watching pornography way too much?
And it has given me a new sexual energy that that I never thought I would see again. If you are curious and want to know more about Cistanche or you’d like to take the plunge and give it a shot for yourself then take this link to learn more.
