Men who watch too much porn are more likely to have erectile dysfunction, research shows

Men who watch a lot of porn are at increased risk of developing erectile dysfunction when they have sex with a partner, a new study finds.

It is blamed for the easy access to adult films that desensitize men so they don’t get excited when they have intercourse themselves.

A study assessed porn habits of men in Denmark and Belgium and compared this to their sexual habits.

It turned out that more than a third of men (35 percent) are more stimulated by watching other people having sex on a screen than they do.

Researchers asked 3,267 people over 16 in Belgium and Denmark to answer 118 questions about masturbation, frequency of porn viewing and sexual activity.

Lead author Professor Gunter de Win said, “There was a very significant relationship between the time spent watching porn and the increasing problems with erectile function with a partner.”

The questionnaire also found that 90 percent of men go on to the most erotic parts of an adult movie when they indulge in some time alone.

However, they discovered that the frequency of self-love attacks is increasing.

Of the men surveyed, the average amount of weekly porn viewed was about 70 minutes, with most participating in individual attacks lasting between five and fifteen minutes.

Professor de Win does point out that some people watch less and some ‘much, much more’. than others.

For example, one in forty-five respondents (2.2 percent) watched more than seven hours a week.

“There’s no question that porn is adding to the way we look at sex,” he adds. Only 65 percent of men found sex with a partner more exciting than watching porn.

Plus, 20 percent thought they should watch more extreme porn to get the same level of arousal as before.

“We believe the problems with erectile dysfunction related to porn stem from this lack of arousal.”

The study presented at a virtual conference of the European Association of Urology found that nearly one in four (23 percent) of the over-35s had some degree of erectile dysfunction.

The researchers say this figure was higher than they expected.

A separate 2016 study found that for teens under 40, the average number of men struggling with erectile dysfunction is about 14 percent.

Professor de Win from the University of Antwerp, Belgium, said: “This figure was higher than we expected.”

Since 2007, pornography has been increasingly available over the internet, leading to a rapid uptake in use.

Google and Facebook follow users while watching PORN

It seems that Google and Facebook like to watch, while the tech companies track visitors to 74 percent and 10 percent of porn websites, respectively, experts have found.

U.S. researchers from Microsoft and the Universities of Pennsylvania and Carnegie Mellon scanned 22,484 adult-themed sites to find out where they were sending user data.

Their analysis found that 93 percent of these pornographic websites forward data to an average of seven domains owned by outside companies.

Researchers also found that just 17 percent of adult-scanned sites had some form of encryption, leaving user data vulnerable to leaks the rest.

But there is little information on how it could affect erectile function, Professor de Win said.

His research focused on men who had had sex in the past four weeks, allowing them to relate the effect of porn.

Professor de Win said, ‘The work is designed to loosen any relationship between porn and erectile dysfunction, and given the large sample size, we can be pretty sure of the findings.

Our next step is to identify what factors lead to erectile dysfunction and to conduct a similar study on the effects of porn on women.

“In the meantime, we believe that doctors dealing with erectile dysfunction should also ask about pornography viewing.”

Professor Maarten Albersen of the University of Leuven, Belgium, who was not involved in the study, said porn could lead to decreased erectile function or sexual satisfaction or confidence during partner sex.

He added, “As Professor De Win says, the current hypothesis is that the type of porn viewed over time may become more explicit and partner sex does not lead to the same level of arousal as the pornographic material.

The study contributes to an ongoing debate on the subject; Experts have emphasized that porn can have both positive and negative effects and can be used, for example, as an aid in the treatment of sexual dysfunctions, so this is a controversial area and the final words have not been said on this topic. ‘
