Internet pornography destroying men's ability to perform with real women, finds study

Last updated at 5:07 PM on 21st October 2011

Internet pornography is creating a generation of young men who are hopeless in the bedroom, according to research.

Exposure to lurid images and films in the new media is de-sensitising so many young people that they are increasingly unable to become excited by ordinary sexual encounters, a report said.

The result is that impotence is no longer a problem associated with middle-aged men of poor health but is afflicting men in the prime of their lives.

According to a report in Psychology Today, a respected U.S. journal, the problem is now so common that men in their 20s consider their inability to perform to be 'normal'.

The report, called 'Porn-Induced Sexual Dysfunction is a Growing Problem', explains that the loss of libido 30 years early is caused by continuous over-stimulation of dopamine, the neurotransmitter that activates the body's reaction to sexual pleasure, by repeatedly viewing pornography on the internet.

A 'paradoxical effect' is created whereby with each new thrill, or 'dopamine spike', the brain loses its ability to respond to dopamine signals, meaning that porn-users demand increasingly extreme experiences to become sexually aroused.

The Psychology Today report found that continuous over-stimulation of dopamine through looking at porn is leading to loss of libido

'Erotic words, pictures, and videos have been around a long while, but the Internet makes possible a never-ending stream of dopamine spikes,' said Marnia Robinson, the author of the report.

'Today's users can force its release by watching porn in multiple windows, searching endlessly, fast-forwarding to the bits they find hottest, switching to live sex chat, viewing constant novelty, firing up their mirror neurons with video action and cam-2-cam, or escalating to extreme genres and anxiety-producing material. 'It's all free, easy to access, available within seconds, 24 hours a day, seven days a week,' she said.

But she added: 'In some porn users, the response to dopamine is dropping so low that they can't achieve an erection without constant hits of dopamine via the internet.' Many were initially shocked, she said, when they discovered their sensitivity was declining 'toward normal sex'.

'When they try to have actual intercourse and cannot, they understandably panic,' Robinson said.

'Most men are astonished to learn that pornography use can be a source of sexual performance problems.

'Instead, many are becoming convinced that erectile dysfunction at 20-something is normal,' she said.

'They are amazed that heavy porn use can affect them adversely, that no one told them it could affect them.'

Robinson said recovery was possible over a period of months by giving the brain a chance to 'reboot' itself by shunning pornography completely.

But she said that while recovering, addicts were likely to experience a temporary loss of libido as well as 'insomnia, irritability, panic, despair, concentration problems, and even flu-like symptoms'. The report comes just a week after David Cameron announced new measures to encourage internet providers to block access to pornography in an attempt to protect children from its harmful effects.

The findings were welcomed by Norman Wells of the Family Education Trust. 'This research gives the lie to the idea that pornography is just a bit of harmless fun,' he said.

'Not only does it depersonalise those who take part in it, but it also has the potential to damage the real-life relationships of those who use it. 'People who exercise self-control in this area and make a point of steering clear of pornography and sexual imagery in all its forms are not the repressive killjoys they are often taken to be,' he added.

'These findings suggest that prizing modesty and respecting the private nature of expressions of sexuality will bring its own rewards.'

This must be the reason why the population has decreased so dramatically since the introduction of internet porn. Oh wait...

Seriously. I just found out recently there are about a billion more people on this rock than I thought there were. I knew there was a reason it feels so crowded lately.

I blame my social retardedness, lack of experience/physical stamina, and depression/anxiety induced erectile dysfunction.

Pretty much what I was gonna say.

If you're developing a porn addiction and getting ED, it's not going to be that big of a deal, trust me.

If internet porn disappeared tomorrow(Vishnu forbid) I would be the most notorious and prolific serial rapist the world has ever known within two weeks time. I would be the Michael Jordan of rape. They would put a silhouette of me raping on a pair of best-selling sneakers.

Let that be a warning to you dumb broads who would outlaw internet porn if given the chance... internet porn is the only thing standing between me turning you into Swiss cheese. You take away my safety release valve and I'm gonna blow all over you dizzy bitches.

Take away my cyberspank and I'll be rapin' e'erbody up in here!

I went so deep into porn, that now I'm desensitized to it. It's back to where it all started, the only porn I want pics of amateur flashing, upskirt and downblouse.

Rates of guys who shove it in, then pull it all the way out, then in, then all the way out on the rise.

Also - gaping.

I don't have a porn addiction. I pleasure myself to girls I see on the bus/train/walking around more than I do to porn. And I'm not even talking about particularly attractive girls either.

I'd say his problem is more that he is 26 years old, lives with his parents & they treat him like he's 10. I see him doing a Lizzy Borden impersonation in the near future.

I actually agree with this study. I'm 28 and have never had an issue getting it up unless I was obnoxiously drunk (beyond blackout drunk), but plain sex was starting to get pretty boring for me. I just said fuck it and starting introducing all those porn scenarios to chicks I was banging, which wasn't all that bad but did lead to some issues (especially when I suggested them the second night of fucking a girl).

College desensitizes you a little also.
