Porn-Induced Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is widely considered by men to be a distressing disorder that can have real effects both physically and mentally on a patient.

So what is porn-induced erectile dysfunction? Porn-induced erectile dysfunction is a controversial theory for explaining sexual problems. 

Ongoing research into establishing a link between pornography remains theoretical, and no connection has been concretely proven as of yet. Case studies suggest that pornography may decrease a man’s satisfaction with his own body, triggering anxiety and a desire to be ‘manlier’.

Men who view pornography may need to progressively increase sexual stimulation to feel and remain aroused due to the potential desensitising effects of hardcore pornography. In addition to this, men who use sex toys may desensitise the nerves in the penis head, making it more difficult to gain and maintain an erection because the nerves require more physical attention.

There are also health problems which can result in erectile dysfunction including diabetes, heart disease, nerve damage and high blood pressure. It is also a known side effect of many antidepressants and blood pressure medications which can make it difficult to achieve or sustain an erection.

Erectile dysfunction has no single defined cause. Research indicates that relationship trouble, body image, anxiety, stress and similar psychological factors can contribute to causing erectile dysfunction; however, there is not currently a ‘catch-all’ diagnosis to determine the underlying cause of erectile dysfunction problems.

Many men choose to undergo a penis enlargement procedure to regain confidence in their self-image. Should you be suffering from erectile dysfunction, speak with your doctor to talk about the available treatment options for your situation including therapy, counselling, medication and as a last resort, surgery such as a penile implant.
