How Porn Ruined Your Life

Dec 23, 12 How Porn Ruined Your Life

Just In time for Christmas, guys: the gift that keeps on giving

Maybe this is an understatement, but if porn hasn’t had a niche audience, before then it doesn’t need one now since, well, its audience is the mass public. I’m not going to act like porn is going to stop or that I’m innocent of the funtime movies or even that people are going to more conscious of their happy time choices. I’m just here to state the facts, take ‘em or leave ‘em.

So from here on out, don’t act like you didn’t know.

For starters, let’s talk about the strides pornography has made recently, shall we? Great, 1.2 million (with an M) years of porn has been viewed since 2006… and that’s just on two websites!!! Yep you read that right. According to the search site PornWatchers.com, 2 websites (which I will keep anonymous since, well, I want to keep your attention, buddy) have received 93 Billion (with a B) video views apiece, which translates to 15 views per every living breathing person. The Huffington Post reports that in addition there are over 7.5 million comments on the videos because we know you guys like to stay social when it comes to the genital joy websites.

Surprisingly, there were low statistics on those clicking the sharing on Facebook button… Strange.

Okay, since we got that everyone including your grandmother is watching porn out of the way, let’s talk about the negative effects of this pastime of pleasure.

First off, watching pornography regularly leads to social dysfunction, but that can be said about the use of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or anyone who spends more time on the internet than they do in reality. So that much should be evident.

Let’s get into the naked truth now (see what I did there?). Another terrible effect pornographic images can have is the numbing factor. Over time and time again, a man can lose his sensitivity to actual sex with an actual person and, in some scenarios, lose sensitivity to himself. (English: That means you couldn’t masturbate.) So the worst-case scenario could mean having a sexual partner, but no longer able to engage in sexual intercourse with them.

The sensitivity issues don’t end there. The effect continues within the brain by rewiring it. To make it simple, think of your brain when sexually aroused as having extremely high levels of activity going on. Just like using drugs, the level of activity dies down after that. Again, keep the drugs metaphor in mind and think of someone who is constantly looking for that high and never truly finding it. In my opinion, the nerves in your brain break off and forge new ones so you’re already fighting an uphill battle.

So someone who is watching porn at least 3 to 4 times a week, over time, will struggle to get aroused, even watching the hottest of movies and, even worse, as stated before, getting aroused enough to have actual sex (since we both know porn is just fantasy sex, it’s not real).

What’s my advice? Well to wean yourself may take a week, a month or a year, but in that time try to go out to the park or to the beach (if you live in such a place where the climate this time of year permits). Pick up a new hobby or take the day off and explore town or something. Sure the urge is going to come sooner or later but do what Usher told you to do and let it burn. When it gets too bad, that’s the point when you find a partner and enjoy the great miracle of life (just use protection ‘cause trust me, you’ll end up having another miracle of life in 9 months).

Maybe you don’t have a partner and you use porn as a supplement, trust me and take a break from the happy time movies. You don’t want to be in the room with an old man and wondering if you are the only going through erectile dysfunction.

I’m just looking out for you buddy.
