Now before I get really serious and technical about all of this I am going to tell you the most personal reasons I don’t recommend you watch porn, at least from a man’s perspective. All of these reasons explain in great detail why watching porn is detrimental to your health but I want you to think about it from the side of your wife or girlfriend.

If you care to read all the technical information and the science behind the behavior, it all adds up to the same thing but the worst part about is you are rejecting your partner in favour of porn.

I know of a beautiful woman who I tried dating several times tell me that one of her boyfriends would actually tell her that he would rather watch porn then have sex with her.

Nicky would want to watch it with me and I was very apprehensive and embarrassed in the beginning. I realized over the years that nothing is more important then the intimacy that you share…and the anticipation you build to have sex in a healthy relationship.

This means never rejecting your partner or their advances for selfish reasons. To be honest, I don’t think pornography has any place in a healthy relationship, I think you should share each others deepest darkest fantasies, in real life, safely, together.

Now let’s talk about some of the serious medical concerns watching porn can create.

There is a growing body of research that suggests that excessive consumption of pornography can have negative effects on an individual’s well-being. Some of these effects may include:

Desensitization to sexual stimuli

Desensitization to sexual stimuli refers to the idea that the more pornography an individual consumes, the less they may be aroused by sexual stimuli that are similar to what they have seen. In other words, they may become less sensitive to the sexual content they are viewing, and it may take more extreme or novel stimuli to produce the same level of arousal.

Distorted beliefs about sex and relationships

One of the potential negative effects of watching pornography is that it can lead to distorted beliefs about sex and relationships. Because pornography often presents unrealistic and exaggerated portrayals of sex and relationships, individuals who watch a lot of pornography may start to believe that these portrayals are accurate and may try to emulate them in their own lives. This can lead to unrealistic expectations and dissatisfaction in real-life sexual relationships. It can also lead to a distorted understanding of what healthy, consensual sexual relationships look like, which can be harmful.

Increased risk of developing sexually compulsive behavior

Excessive consumption of pornography has been linked to an increased risk of developing sexually compulsive behavior. This is sometimes referred to as “porn addiction.” While the concept of “porn addiction” is still debated in the scientific community, some studies have suggested that excessive consumption of pornography can lead to changes in the brain that are similar to those seen in individuals with other types of behavioral addictions. These changes may make it difficult for an individual to control their urge to consume pornography, leading to compulsive behavior.

Difficulty forming or maintaining romantic relationships

Excessive consumption of pornography may make it difficult for individuals to form or maintain romantic relationships. This is because pornography often presents a distorted view of sex and relationships, and individuals who watch a lot of pornography may come to expect their own relationships to conform to this distorted view. This can lead to unrealistic expectations and dissatisfaction in real-life relationships, which can make it difficult to form or maintain a healthy, happy relationship. Additionally, excessive consumption of pornography may lead to a lack of interest in real-life sexual relationships, which can also make it difficult to form or maintain romantic connections.

Negative impacts on mental health, such as anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem

Excessive consumption of pornography has been linked to negative impacts on mental health, such as anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. This is likely due to a combination of factors, including the potential for pornography to desensitize individuals to sexual stimuli, the unrealistic and exaggerated portrayals of sex and relationships, and the potential for compulsive behavior. Additionally, the shame and stigma that often surrounds pornography consumption can itself lead to negative mental health effects. It’s important to note that not everyone who watches pornography will experience negative mental health effects, but it is a potential risk.

Reduced satisfaction with one’s own appearance and sexual performance

Excessive consumption of pornography has been linked to reduced satisfaction with one’s own appearance and sexual performance. This is likely because pornography often presents unrealistic and exaggerated portrayals of physical attractiveness and sexual behavior. As a result, individuals who watch a lot of pornography may come to believe that these portrayals are accurate and may compare themselves unfavorably to the individuals they see on screen. This can lead to dissatisfaction with one’s own appearance and sexual performance, which can be harmful to an individual’s self-esteem and well-being.

It’s important to keep in mind that the effects of pornography can vary from person to person, and not everyone who watches pornography will experience negative effects. However, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks and to consume pornography in moderation, if at.

The subject itself is as personal as one can get. And only you, and your partner know the truth about your sexual life and what works for each of you together. I think being in love, being in a healthy relationship means you can look your partner in the eye and tell them everything you think about and want, especially physically in your relationship.

Thinking Good Thoughts. Thanks for Reading.
