How Porn Affects Your Sex Life

video-1

The rise of the Internet has made porn more ubiquitous than ever, no longer is opposition to pornography strictly the realm of religious believers and hard-core feminists. Studies have shown that it affects all and sundry and there is a growing concern that it is beginning to effect our brains, our relationships, and even our bodies.

I was exposed to porn from an early age. Come to think of it, I wouldn’t necessarily call it what I was exposed to then as porn since porn involves lucid images/videos of people having sex. I had what i’ll term a soft landing because I was exposed to images of white naked girls on the pages of x rated magazines.

As the years went by, I graduated from looking to reading which is even worst. Up stepped mind boggling soft sell magazines like Hints with such descriptively detailed sexual encounters that you would feel lost in the story with your libido jumping through the roof during and even after the story ended.

When looking and reading wasn’t enough, watching became the next big thing. Going out to pee one night in the boarding school, I stumbled upon some of my seniors watching 2 white girls having sex with a black man and my sex life (future sex life since I was only but a virgin then) was altered forever.

Then began my quest to watch more naked girls having sex with super man looking men. As a young boy I was then, with no girl to practice on, masturbation was the next best thing.

I recently came across a research article that came to the conclusion that 4 in 5 male adults have tried masturbation in their lifetime while 3 in 5 female adults have masturbated in their lifetime. Scientists at Cambridge University recently studied the brain scans of porn addicts and found that they looked exactly like those of drug addicts. This study shows exactly how pornography has held people back and got them hooked.

Porn’s first impact is making you loose control. Control of your sexual urges. People have mastubated or had sex in an airplane’s restroom, in a club’s toilet and even in a moving car. Are those traits of someone in charge of their sexual being? It’s no secret that porn has played a humongous role in this trend of events.

Porn is like a leech, it holds on until you indulge yourself in what you have watched. It is almost impossible to watch porn on a regular basis and not be tempted to practicing sex or masturbation.

Porn also has a way of making one unfaithful in a relationship. I have no study to prove this point but I can tell you for free that if a man derives pleasure watching a very busty girl having sex or a woman having sex through the anus but his wife is against having anal sex and isn’t busty. He is prone to looking elsewhere to satisfy his sexual desires.

Another way porn has effected sexual relations between couples is ‘unmet expectations’. The story of a couple I read in one of the dailies comes to mind. The lady was asking for advice for the strange sexual expectations of her husband. She complained of his quest to try strange things in bed including anal sex, oral sex, weird sex styles all which she wasn’t comfortable with. As funny as it sounds, porn has altered the mentality of much people especially men. Stories of men with the quest to try things they have watched in porn on their partners abound.

Porn also causes selfishness in other areas of your relationship including sex life. A porn addicted guy would rush into sex without considering foreplay because he is in a hurry to try out his desires.

Do I blame porn for the growing trend of sexual promiscuity or masturbation among youths and adults alike? Partially but one thing you can’t take from humans no matter how much religion you preach is the sexual hormones embedded in our genes. We can throw some shade on porn but we need to take full responsibility for our actions and remember this; even without porn, people will have sex. It’s natural.

 

Porn makes you have sex not make love. Think about it.
