Porn Addiction

Laugh. Snigger. Look to your friends and instigate a laugh, it’s fine, I probably would too. Although the truth is you know exactly what I’m talking about and you’ll relate to the exact feelings i’m about to express in this article

According to a study done by the Huffington Post, the average age of primary exposure to Pornographic material is 11 years old. 11. Let that sink in. Mothers, you’re 11-year-old inside playing that WWE game that he loves, he may or may not indulge in watching two people have sex. He may or may not be warping his mind into unrealistic sexual experiences that don’t match up to real life sexual intimacy.He may be changing his mind to view women as objects, as opposed to the beautiful race they are.

I started watching porn at 9. 9 years old, I’ve been warping my mind in this fashion since I’m 9. It’s all I know, but until now I never knew it was wrong. I never knew that looking at a females backside like it was some piece of meat was wrong. I didn’t realise sexualising the girl from the Rimmel ad on television was wrong. And I couldn’t have fathomed how far porn is from the actual real life act of sex until I encountered it for the first time. Porn is aggressive, sex is full of love and passion.Two completely differing things. Girls don’t scream like they do in porn, well not as loud. Boobs don’t look like they do in porn. Bodies don’t look like they do in porn. Penises don’t. People don’t. Watching porn is giving into a false sense of reality. A world full of sexual fantasies, that warps the mind immeasurably.

Am I saying porn is completely bad? No. In some ways it’s educational. To learn how to enter a woman. To learn what sex could look like. It has it’s benefits. Arousal, it evokes arousal, which is a benefit as well.  But what’s not a benefit is the fact that porn is often a persons first real experience of arousal. Not a loved up steamy session with their childhood sweetheart, not even close. It’s often a lonely sweaty encounter in a dark room, the only light eluding from the shadows being the one from the computer, broadcasting a fake sense of reality to an unsuspecting victim.

Porn makes you develop an emotional bond with a fake world. You begin to have feelings for these Glamazons on-screen, the way they look while having sex, you enjoy it and you frequently come back for more. You have you favourites, oh of course you do. We all do, you have the porn stars you’ll keep coming back for. Different settings. Different roles. Different looks. Addicted to a warped personality who performs fake acts to a population who are hellbent on getting off.  The more you watch porn, the more your brain will crave it. It’s addictive, porn creates the same levels of dopamine the brain as heroin does.  In 2016, Pornhub alone received 23 billion visits to their page. 23 billion. That adds up to 64 million people a day watching porn. Not all these 64 million will be addicts, some casuals which is ok. Watching porn once a month isn’t the problem, watching it every day is. Porn causes erectile dysfunction. Pre-mature ejaculation. Porn also causes a problem called the Collidge Effect. In psychological terms, the Collidge 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, even after cessation of sex with prior but still available sexual partners. What this means in simple terms is the more sexual partners you have available the less interested you will become in the original one you had. So, if you have a girlfriend and you watch porn daily, you are encoutering numerous new “sexual partners” that you are going to orgasm to. The Collidge effect, porn isn’t healthy and it’s time we talked about it.

Fight the new drug. Don’t let fake sex damage your mind.
