Porn Addiction Can Lead to Sexual Dysfunction and Erectile Dysfunction

Posted on May 16th, 2012

Laptops, smart phones and computers make viewing pornographic materials easier than ever. But can too much porn ruin healthy sex lives and meaningful relationships? Experts say ‘yes’, according to a recent blog post.

For many adults, porn addiction can create a tidal wave of relationship, emotional and even financial troubles. It can also lead to sexual dysfunction.

A common problem with porn addiction is the inability of the addicted individual to achieve an orgasm with their partner. Men who spend about 75 percent of their sex life masturbating to porn can develop a disconnection with their long-term partners. The brain finds this person not the visual stimulation needed to achieve an orgasm. The emotional disconnect turns into a physical problem and turns into sexual dysfunction or erectile dysfunction.

There are many different symptoms of porn addiction that may lead to sexual dysfunction including: difficulty getting an erection, difficulty reaching orgasm, the need for porn images to ejaculate, a need to include a partner in watching porn and the increase of keeping secrets.

There are many treatment plans out there for those suffering from porn addiction, sexual dysfunction or erectile dysfunction. But it needs to be noted that a majority of men do not initially receive the correct treatment. Often times, the root of the problem is overlooked which is the porn addiction itself.

Because of embarrassment or denial, many men simply visit their medical professional with the complaint of erectile dysfunction. Many only get help for the problem and not the real issue. Individuals with porn addiction need to seek treatment to overcome the addiction that may be the cause of other areas of sexual dysfunction.
