effects of porn

Animals are as exotic as humans when it comes to sex.

 

Do you know what happens when you drop a rat in a confined cage with a female rat?

 

Hell lot of repetitive sex with the same female until the male draws out.

 

Even when the female rats wants more, the male rat will get drained out completely.

 

And soon as you put a new female into the cage, the virility of the male rat will re-emerge, and the same behavior will continue until he again loses the interest.

 

The effect is called the Coolidge effect— it’s a positive impact on sexual response with the entry of the new mate.

 

Probably, this effect has fed pornography to the consumers, thereby creating an exciting fantasy world.

 

Why is pornography a problem?

 

One of the studies from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health suggests that there’s a massive increase in sexual problems among the couples, and more than 18 million people are affected by it.

 

While we can’t confirm the overall sufferers due to unreported issues, we can safely say that the number surely supersedes these reports. [1]

 

Porn consumption is one of the essential contributing factors which has led to these sexual problems.

 

Novelty effect— the root of all the problems.

 

Without coolidge and novelty effect, there wouldn’t be any internet porn, there wouldn’t be infidelity, and all the relationships will be as charming as they were in the beginning.

 

Initially, even a simple pornographic image will arouse your sexual desire because it’s a new experience for your brain.

 

But as the consumption increases, your sexual desire will stall, and your brain would look for new resources such as long pornographic videos and unexecuted erotic stories.

 

The search for novel endeavors, i.e., unfamiliar and new experience, will affect your psychological and relationship status.

 

Dopamine controls your sexual behavior.

 

Dopamine doesn’t have a restricted function— it’s not at peak only when you find novelty.

 

Your brain rewards your system with loads of dopamine when it receives something kinkier and pleasurable than the anticipated.

 

Pornography has all the new materials which would push your brain to disseminate dopamine like a fire in the body.

 

And when your partner doesn’t offer you something different and unique, you start feeling repelled by them.

 

What people generally call love is a neurological reaction which defines the intensity of attraction.

 

Here’re some of the repercussions of watching hardcore porn.

 

  • The sensual touch becomes abnormal: The pleasure you’d reap from sexual sessions depends on the kind of contact your partner makes. As long as the touch feels sensual, your skin will be sensitive, and the stimuli will permit sexual actions. However, by watching extreme porn, your skin loses sensitivity. The more you watch it, the more time you will need to develop dopamine. Hence, the slow sexual event can be a turn off for you.

 

The consequences of desensitivity: As your skin fails to capture the sensual touch, you are likely to have sexual disorders such as erectile dysfunction or dry vagina. Despite physical stimulation, the sensory nerves would refrain from carrying the sexual stimuli to the brain, thereby limiting the sexual response. In spite of rigorous jerking, it would still be difficult for your penis to shoot up; and frenzy rubbing would not even give the satisfactory lubrication in the vagina.

 

  • Porn-based sensitization: There’s a sexual pattern for which your brain rewards the most dopamine. When you develop these patterns while watching unbridled porn, the stimuli will react only when your expectations are met or when you execute a similar level of the plot with your partner. Hence, sensitization is slightly based on the kind of porn you watch in the virtual world rather than the sex you have in the real world.

 

The consequences of sensitization: Porn is a scripted-wrap which often fools people in sewing unmatchable expectations. The issues with porn-based sensitization are the challenge which the partners need to come over. The scripted stories are often difficult to execute, and unsatisfactory sex steeps up.

 

  • Carefree about consequences: You’d initially be considerate towards your partner’s feelings; however, with more pornographic intake, you will steadily develop a carefree attitude, and you’d hardly care about its consequences on your relationship. It’s a hypofrontality disorder where you’d associate yourself more with porn and less with the partner.

 

The consequences of hypofrontality: This is where the most relationships detriment, and finish on a bitter note.

 

So, why should you stop watching porn?

 

It’s half the story with the porn affecting your psychological behavior. Some of the studies prove that porn makes your partner less attractive.

 

It creates a superficial and facade version of sex with highly attractive models, surgically-made-catchy, brushed-up models, and unusual expert positions.

 

It caters the fact that your partner can never reach your expectations and it’s better that you stick to the porn rather than going live.

 

The reality which you are served is a time-warped story which you are forced to believe otherwise.

 

Porn is the reason why every 6 out of 7 women are expected to broom-up their looks during sexual intercourse, and if they don’t comply— the attraction level dips.

 

And it’s a tough ask for any relation to flourish with one of the partners feeling unattracted to the other.

 

What should you do?

 

Be the best judge: Start living an original life rather than the counterfeit hollow. Porn kills the affection in the real-world because you think you’ve got the backend support. But in reality, you are sliding towards hollow promises rather than towards the committed partner. Be the best judge and ask yourself— what’s truer? The cascading effect of pornography slowly gets over your mental state, and by the time you realize it— boom! You’ve lost all the emotional shoulders.

 

Understand the conversational nuances: You can solve the matter by decoding the conversational nuances with your partner. Discuss and spread the words that porn is harmful to sex life, and it increases the demand for unusual activities.

 

Read the use cases: Of course, use cases help you to break down the pros and cons of any execution. Go through some of the facts to discover the effect of porn on the couples, and analyze how relationship behaved before and after consuming pornography.

 

Share your fantasies: It’s better to watch porn and keep your points to the partner rather than watching them and not spilling the beans. Your partner has every right to know your expectations and unless you are fair and square in stating your desires— it’s tough to revive the sex life.
