But just how dangerous is the act? Have we ever stopped to think about the damage a simple solo sex can be? Is that Fake Taxi video ruining your sex life? Can the Casting Couch ruin your performance in bed? Can It inhibit you having a long lasting loving relationship?A study called the Coolidge Effect suggests that it is.

The Coolidge Effect is a phenomenon seen in animal species whereby males (and to a lesser extent females) exhibit renewed sexual interest if introduced to new receptive sexual partners. This is present in all mammals. The introduction of new sexual partners makes us more aroused then having the same sexual partner over and over again. What happens in porn? Every time a new video is clicked on the watcher is being introduced to a new sexual partner. A new sexual entity to reach a climax to. And if we watch that same video again, that same sexual partner again, we become bored. This can be the same in real life. Subjecting yourself to numerous sexual partners online through the medium of porn can take away the joy and intimacy of having sex with your actual partner. The Coolidge effect would see to that. Boredom of having the same sexual partner will begin to become a factor.program-for-teen-pornography-addiction.jpg

Porn Addiction

As with everything that feels good or tastes good, too much of it is often very damaging. Heroin, Cocaine, Weed, they all release dopamine into the body. Dopamine is what makes us feel good. It is a neurotransmitter. The more someone used one of the following drugs in question, the more they feel good. Therefore the more they want the drug due to the way it makes them feel. It becomes addictive. Masturbation releases the same dopamine as hard drugs like Cocaine and Heroin, making it just as likely to become addicted to doing it.

Terry Crews the actor once openly talked about his battle with porn addiction. Speaking on a video he released himself to the world, Crews states that, “Porn ruins all intimacy”.  Crews then goes on to talk about how his wife threatened to leave him, she even went as far as to say,” I don’t know you anymore”.317EF2F400000578-3461279-image-a-80_1456277094762

Are There Any Benefits to Pornography?

It would be foolish not to address the benefits. For the sole reason of I myself do not actually know whether it is unhealthy or not, my gospel is just speculation and fact. Masturbation has many health benefits of course, but many would argue that them health benefits are overshadowed when they are mixed with Porn use.

Above are all the health benefits that Solo Sex can bring. It’s a massive stress reliever. It reduces erections although you could argue this is a huge burden among young men as opposed to a benefit. It helps menstrual cramps in women. It helps the immune system. So why is there so many articles and studied suggesting that masturbation is unhealthy.

It’s largely due to the introduction of Porn as well as masturbation. But many do hold  the belief that the whole charade is unhealthy. Reddit group NOFAP are a group of men and women who detail their progress of not masturbating over a forum. Thousands of men and women discuss there masturbation habits over the forum and talk about how not masturbating has improved their quality of life. Some have gone as far to say that when you stop masturbating you, “don’t wanna cry when you wake up”. The forum looks and runs like this.

Overall Conclusion.

It will be a couple of long hard years before we can fully decide whether masturbation is either healthy or unhealthy. It was the same with smoking I suppose. But in summation, if it makes you happy then why stop, just know there is side effects and know your limits.
