Internet pornography destroying men's ability to perform with real women, finds study
Daily Mail [UK] ^ | 21st October 2011

Posted on 10/22/2011 11:58:36 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

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.

-snip-

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.

'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.

I know a certain researcher who's been a-peekin' in my window.

Not to be gross but if a man masturbates too much they won't be as interested in sex. There is no contradiction.

I can't understand the allure of talking to a total stranger you can't see for sexual gratification online... You may think you're talking to this...

Is referring to "too much" the gross part?

What has been seen cannot be unseen.

Seriously though, this article states that young people go to more and more extremes to get that rush. Well, isn’t that what a serial killer once told an evangelist in his interview before going to the chair? It all began with porn...

Look. The world was perfect before internet porn. Men and women had no problems whatsoever.

Men and women never strayed.

Much.

Or something

This study is backwards. Those that don’t perform well with real women spend all their time on internet porn. Cause and effect runs the other way.

This is exactly the opposite of what we have been told for decades: pornography leads to rapes, child sexual abuse, etc. etc.

I do believe this article, as there is an air-brushed perfection in all online content - not just pornographic, that leads to impossible expectations - nobody can live up to it.

However, I’d be surprised if this is limited to just males.

Any masturbation is too much.

It destroys a man's ability to control himself.

It distorts the view of sex into thinking it is about his own pleasure.

The combination of masturbation and porno will age a man sexually so that he will be impotent at a very young age.

No, porn is addictive, many men become obsessed with it, so how well they do with real woman becomes irrelevant.

The real is never as good as the fantasy, that is the lie that porn sells.

I read one article here where some kind of seminar speaker on relationships said that after his seminars he was invariably rushed by loads of college women who told him that internet porn was absolutely ruining their relationships, that so many men they dated were completely disconnected from the real world in terms of interacting with an actual woman, never mind the sexual dynamic.

Just what this article says.

BTW, I think real world women also contribute to the desensitizing of men. So many walk around practically naked all the time. They must not realize that if you walk around naked long enough, after a while no one notices. That’s not a good thing.

You have a good point. I have observed an example of that.

When I worked at a nuclear plant some years ago, we would put on our anti-contamination clothing near the contaminated area where we were going to work. To do it, we’d just strip down to our underwear and put on the coveralls right out in the open. We were all professionals, and it wasn’t a big deal.....Except for this one deconner. She was VERY WELL built. When she dressed out, things would stop.

After a few months of this she got tired of the attention. She came to work without underwear. As usual, things stopped when she dressed out that day. But after that, she wore underwear again, and nobody paid any attention to her.

except now there are camera sites you may visit and watch young women and the “ultimate reveal” live . And men pay them in the “currency” of those sites. These are the girls next door or in Eastern Europe not hags. And they have public not private exhibitions. 1000+ may watch any particular woman while a small number compensate the most successful entrepreneurs a couple of hundreds of dollars in an hour.

(Let us not make this personal in responses.)

This doesn’t sound unreasonable unless you remember the “scientists” were saying the same thing about Playboy magazine 30 or 40 years ago. Back then it was the image of the perfect woman that would make the average woman unattractive to men. It’s amazing that, as you get older, there truly is nothing new under the sun.

Porn is a *victimless* crime?

I don’t think so.

It’s about time someone demonstrated that. Sad to say, it’s pretty pathetic that this self-centered reason might be more effective in stopping the use of porn than the fact that it’s just plain wrong.

see my post further down. Real and live is now reality. The women of 2011 are well beyond exhibitionists. But many claim they would “never do porn”. And on one site there may be male & female or male/male , while the other site permits only women solo or together.

You are so correct. How else can you explain the men visiting live & free sites tipping young women $25, $50, $100 and more to the same woman at the same time? Meanwhile 1000 or 2000 at a time view for free.
