Watching porn kills your sex drive

An Italian study showed that the more porn men watch the less likely they are to have an erection when they want to have sex in real life. Exposure to lurid images and films in the news media is de-sensitising so many young men that they are increasingly unable to become excited by ordinary sexual encounters.

It actually makes sense if you think about it.

Eh, So be it just take some kinky shit to get me up. Cool with that.

I thought people knew this already.

I saw this on TYT(TheYoungTurks)

Tolerance is a bitch.

If Women didn’t expect men to be beyond human maybe it wouldn’t be a problem. As it stands women are their own worst enemy when it comes to dating.

I call bullshit.

I watched(enough) and never have/had any problem. boner ready on command any time. I am still very much excited by ordinary sexual encounter.

If any it makes people want sex more.

I just checked my spam email for a solution for helping with my erection because I seem to not be able to get it up with all the excess porn I watch.

brb porno-diet.

I can see that if the gf in this situation resembles a dog. Probably a reason they are wanking it instead of sticking it to their bitch.

i watch porn with girls and bone them

I lift things up and put them down

(I voted yes even if I’m not entirely sure this shows solid–heh–causation and even though I’m pretty sure my sex drive was lower than most people’s to begin with. But, hell, even if I did, I’d probably watch even more just to slay my sex further, especially since porn is comedy.)

Yeah, this kinda seems like old news. Or at least somewhat common sense, even if I doubt it’s as clear-cut (not a pun) as the article makes it, especially with its focus on men’s “need” to perform in the bed in the first place–so I guess women are just allowed to starfish and we’re not good if we’re not currently fucking someone–and its already being used by at least one of those “moral guardian” groups. Even if it was more clearly true, I’d still find siding with those people rather distasteful even as a prude myself.

Similarly, a large part of it could easily also be cyclical in that men who can’t get turned on already or are “bad in bed” or have partners who are “bad in bed” (hence the starfish comment) end up looking at a lot of porn because it’s easier to get off with less pressure (again, not a pun) and less judgment (from a specific person). Besides, you generally know your own body better than another person, even if you aren’t constantly touching yourself (down there), so there’s less chance to be “bad in bed” with yourself. So, yeah, again this doesn’t seem to clearly link causation, though I’m not sure if there would be a way to find a definite answer in this regard–this is one of the reasons I am not a scientist.

Meh. Even if it really is slaying libidos left and right like some castrating form of Buffy, then I’d still argue it’s not all bad since it’s functioning as a ghetto form of birth control and we hardly need anymore people on this planet. Hey, maybe we should start pumping porn into third world countries 24/7 (instead of just making people from those places sex slaves).

Rambling almost as its end, that article also had the predictable “oh gods, this is so true! Watching a lot of porn leads to kink. Kink leads to evil. Evil leads to suffering” judgmental Jedi comments in just the most recent ones. I don’t want to imagine how many similarly idiotic ones if I bothered to read all of them. Gods, it’s like I look at comments on Internet news sites solely to remind myself why and how much I loathe people.

I don’t think porn is the issue here. It’s the fact that you use your dick too much that makes it harder to have an erection. In my experience, if you just leave it alone for a while, you’ll go back to normal. Dicks get tired, that’s all.

Because after all:

Man alone cannot control hard dick.

Why would you fuck someone raw? THE DICK MADE YOU DO IT!

I watch a pretty good amount of porn and I can still get a boner just seeing a semi-attractive chick walking down the street.

I dont know anyone who’d want a girl they’re not attracted to.

I watch porn on lonely nights where I am locked away in my room and can’t get to a female.
When a female is in my presence, I TEAR THAT SHIT UP!
Shitty, study is shitty.

I watch alot of porn for a 19-year-old and I get raging boners just cuddling with my girlfriend. So I call major bullshit.

Men only lose the sex drive after wanking off and blowing their load. Not if they just watch the porn. That ‘study’ forgot that large detail. >.>
