Can Porn Cause Erectile Dysfunction? Science’s Answer

Can Porn Cause Erectile Dysfunction 276x300 Can Porn Cause Erectile Dysfunction? Science's AnswerErectile dysfunction due to mental causes is extremely common in men of all ages.

Problem is, it’s hard to pinpoint how or why this sort of “psychological ED” started, and even harder to figure out how to overcome it.

So this shocking and difficult event can send men into an anxious frenzy in order to find the culprit for their lack of erections… and one culprit has been taking the biggest beating lately – porn.

I receive questions on a daily basis from young men asking if porn causes erectile dysfunction.  I’ve seen discussions on forums and even seen websites dedicated to this “porn-induced ED” theory…

The reasoning behind the theory makes sense – men see such highly arousing visuals through porn that they can no longer achieve erections during regular intercourse…

While the idea that being so overly stimulated by porn causes normal sex to be too boring to get it up, sounds good in theory… it’s not true.

In reality, the person is facing anxiety, which every human faces before sex. Combine this with the deep-seated guilt of having watched “sinful” porn… and its the perfect psychological prescription for ED.

Oftentimes men believe that they should have to pay some sort of price for their “sin” of watching porn… and that price is erectile dysfunction… I mean, you gotta pay for it somehow, right?

Well there’s no truth to this… and luckily, science saved the day.

Porn does not cause ED; porn actually improves erection quality according to studies

Researches at UCLA and Montreal’s Concordia University found that time spent watching porn does not cause erectile dysfunction, but to the contrary, actually created a “stronger desire for sex with a partner“.

280 straight male volunteers participated in the survey, stating how often they viewed porn, and their relationship status (127 had regular sex partners).

The study authors reviewed the data, and found no link between porn watching and erectile dysfunction.

The findings continued…

The participants were invited into the lab, and shown films of men and women having sex, up to 3 minutes in length.  The films were a little less “deviant” than most of the porn that the men regularly watched.

The participants were asked to describe how physically aroused they became while viewing the films. The men who regularly watched porn responded much better — erection wise — than the men who didn’t, or rarely viewed porn, showing that porn actually better conditions a man to respond to sexual stimuli.

Keeping your erection “in shape” helps to avoid erectile dysfunction, and porn helps accomplish this “exercise” 

Becoming mentally aroused, achieving an erection, and ejaculating – all three – on a regular basis, is good for your libido and erection quality.

Whether this is through regular sex with your partner, or with the help of porn, these activities will keep your erection functioning normally.

If you don’t use it… you do lose it… at least to some degree (which is recoverable).

So what CAN you do if you are having problems getting an erection before sex?

If you are experiencing a mental block to getting an erection, due to sexual performance anxiety, no need to cut out the Pornhub… first thing you have to do is admit that you’re anxious.  This in and of itself will reduce the anxiety’s power over you, and allow you to work through it.

Trying to ignore the anxiety will not prevent the anxiety from being there; rather it will just allow the anxiety to run amok in the shadows, increasing its strength and not giving you a path through it.

The next thing you have to do is just concentrate on getting as mentally aroused (“horny”) as possible, without even thinking about your erection… your penis knows what to do, it just needs the proper signals…

Have a good one!!
