Can Watching to Much Porn Give you Erectile Dysfunction?

Is there a link Between Porn Viewing and Erectile Dysfunction?

This is a question we have heard many times over lately. If you are a new reader and have never been to our website Edguider.com before, then let us start by saying Porn is not or niche. EDG focuses on helping men find a proper treatment for erectile dysfunction. But wait what about porn and ED?

Over the past year we have been seeing an increasing amount of searchers in our logs, one of the most common questions men are searching for is: “Can watching to much porn give you Erectile Dysfunction”. Although there has been little research or studies done on Porn and ED, many are convinced that being addicted to porn can affect your erections when it comes down to the real thing. What we mean by this is you can only get erections by watching porn. If you want to have casual sex, sleep with your partner or wife can cause your erections not be function as they do with porn.

ARTICLE: Computer + Internet Porn = Erectile Dysfunction

The more porn you watch the worse it can get, you are unknowingly training your brain to only get aroused around images you like to see while watching porn, be it hardcore, fetish, lesbian etc… Whatever you want to see is available just a few clicks away. This is the wrong way to approach masturbation and sex. The good news is there is a way to reverse porn induced erectile dysfunction, which we will discuss at the end of this article.

Real life stories of porn and ED

Here is an interesting e-mail we received from an anonymous reader who discusses his problem with porn:

I have been watching porn online ever since I can remember. I believe I was 15 when I started masturbating in front of the computer for at least 2 hours a day, 1- 3 times each day. I have no problems getting hard when I watch my favorite types of fetishes, which was anal sex.

 I started noticing having difficulty getting erections when I met my first girlfriend. I was 20 and already had 5 years of porn viewing under my belt. At first I thought I was too nervous and could not believe I couldn’t get it up around her, she was very hot and I was attracted to here. I ended up having to buy Viagra to fix this issue and was then able to get erections no problem, but the pills started wearing off a few months down the road and I was exactly where I started.

 I now had a girlfriend who demanded sex at least 3 times a week and was still watching porn because I needed to get my fetishes fix. It felt like a vicious circle, I loved my girlfriend, but could not stop watching porn and this caused me to not get erections. I tried stopping porn and was able to last 4 weeks. I totally noticed the difference and was able to get hard again by just seeing her panties or even thinking about sex. But I broke down one day and watched porn again, arggg, back to square one?

I need to find some way to stop this and am hoping for suggestions or opinions on how to wean myself away from this dilemma

no porn watching no ED

Desensitizing the brain by watching porn.

Some researchers have stressed that porn is just a masturbation aid and has been around for decades. We agree on that, but in the past there were only magazines such as playboy which is considered soft-core porn. The internet has not been around for this long and now that men can watch streaming video, any fantasy is just a few clicks away. Men are constantly browsing the web looking from harder and more extreme types of porn, something they have not seen before. Each time they are doing this they are causing brain chemistry desensitization, to the point where they have developed a dependency on porn and without it they cannot get aroused and therefore no erections.

Unlike several types of erectile dysfunction that are not reversible, porn induced ED can be. For men who have diabetes, erectile dysfunction is a condition that will need to be treated with meds. Those who have ED because of excessive porn viewing HAVE TO QUIT WATCHING PORN! We have read e-mails of some men who were able to balance both, watching a little bit of porn and still being able to get erections. However, in most cases the only way out is to STOP WATCNING PORN for at least 3 months, then check to see if things have improved and take it from there.

Once you stop watching porn you can get your erections back.

Here is an e-mail we received from a man who was able to get his erections back by slowly reversing what he had done. Very interesting testimonial, he actually did everything backwards, by going from Extreme porn, back to hardcore, then to soft core and then NONE:

I am probably one of the biggest porn addicts online. I started at the age of 16 and am now 29. I have been a virgin for the most of my twenties and practically never had sex, except with a prostitute at the age on 24, but this was only possible with the help of a cialis pill I had.

I want to share my story of how I got severe ED by only watching porn. Hopefully my story can inspire others to follow my tracks.

I started by checking out nude playboy pics online, through the yahoo images search (turning off the safe search feature). This went on for a few weeks until I discover several free hardcore porn sites (did not have a credit card at 17 LOL, free was the only way). Once I was at hardcore, playboy was a joke and I needed something more extreme. I spent at least 3 years on one particular site which updated its movie clips daily, so I always got something fresh, but that got old fast.

After time flew by I went on the search for something I had never seen before, I am not going to mention it but if you do enough research you will find whatever sexual fantasy you have, on the internet. It gets to the point where you run out of places to look. By the time I was 27 I was masturbating 3 times a day and had no social life with girls what so ever. If I saw an Asian girl at the mall or wherever, I just got home and starting looking at Asian porn, problem solved right? Wrong!

To my surprise I met a great girl at friend’s graduation and she actually asked me out. To make a long story short, we fell in love and dated for 2 months until we finally tried to get intimate. I was not expecting to get erection trouble when she stripped for me, but I was as soft as can be! This went on happing at least 3 times and I was still watching porn during all of this. After doing my research, I came to the conclusion it was the porn. I do not have much will power but was willing to do anything to keep this girl. She was at the point of breaking up with me, so I had to act fast.

I grabbed my balls and started reversing what I had done. For a whole week I first started on the initial hardcore site I used years ago, which was extreme but not as others I use to visit. I then gradually scaled back done to playboy, where I was able to get erections again no problem, after the week was over I decided, that’s it, no more porn for me. It was hard and I almost budged a few times but I was able to go for 7 more weeks with NO porn.

It did work just as I had planned, I was able to get an erection when my girl and I started making out, and the rest came naturally. I was no longer dependant on porn and am still porn free.

If you want my honest advice, then step back from porn or it will ruin your chances of ever starting a family or being intimate with girls. Gradually roll back what you have put your mine through and get back to those erections you use to get when you saw a girls thong or even a boob.

 It takes time, but give your self at least 2 months and you will notice the difference.”

If you believe you need some help or tips on how to start the process of stopping porn, there are allot of sites that offer this help. The Sexual Recovery Institute has great information that can get you on the right path. It even lists a few steps to get you started right away. One of our favorite tips is, putting up a photo of your loved ones next to your PC.
