The Effects of Watching Porn

The internet is one of the most influential innovations of the current century. Although it helps in many ways, the instant and private access to almost anything also makes it a double-edged sword. Of all the desires the internet can provide, watching porn is by far one of the most sought out and abused of all. Internet porn has now become one of the most addictive aspects of the internet around the globe. It has become so common that people even consider it normal, completely ignoring the devastating harms it can have on both your psyche and physique.

Below we’ll take a look at some dangerous impacts watching porn can have on you. 

1.   Increase in sexual violence tendencies 

The unrestricted and wide variety of porn available on the internet has the power to encourage, normalize, and even trigger acts of rape and sexual violence. Accessing rougher, harder, and extreme forms of porn is no longer a problem, and it can influence your desires and what you consider normal for sex. It was also noticed that people used to watching sexually aggressive porn are more likely to commit rape or sexual harassment. 

2.   A fall in relationships 

In professional porn, the people performing the sexual activities have almost perfect physiques and everything you could desire, after all this is their line of work and they have to look as perfect as possible. However, being used to near-perfection can make you lose interest in real-life people that may not be that physically charming. Watching porn can make people lose interest in their partners and dull their relationships. 

3.   A damaged sex life 

It is noticed that men who watch more porn are often more dissatisfied with their sex life. When you are used to watching highly skilled people performing their acts, and you or your partner cannot do it yourself, the pleasure in sex no longer remains the same. You may also be tempted to perform risky behavior during sex which can put both you and your partner in danger. 

4.   Addiction 

In the list of harmful effects of porn, porn addiction stands somewhere on the top. It was found that your brain responded in a similar fashion to porn as it does to drugs. People can become so addicted to porn that they may watch it just because they have developed a habit and not because they enjoy it anymore. An addiction to porn can also make a person socially isolated where they start to decide to watch porn over indulging in social activities. A porn habit can become out of control and become a proper addiction making problems for you to focus on your job, studies, and relationships, etc.

5.   A lewd attitude towards women 

Porn can alter the attitude with which you see women. It can give rise to sexist attitudes and unrealistic expectations from other people such as bodily standards and sexual performances. Attitudes of stereotypes and hostility might increase towards women and it can destroy our values of how we perceive people of the other gender. You start to sexually objectify people only treating them as sex objects.  

6.   Physical disadvantages 

The part of the brain which is linked to pleasure can get shrunk with excessive porn usage. This could mean that you require more graphic material and violent content to get arousal as compared to normal people. Excessive masturbating to porn can also lead males to problems such as erectile dysfunction, not being able to masturbate or get an erection without erotic images, or difficulty maintaining an orgasm. Excessive porn, masturbation, and orgasm (PMO) can lead people to experience more tiredness and lower levels of motivation.
