Porn and Sex Addiction

Porn and Sex Addiction are interesting topics.  Not everyone believes that porn is a problem and it often isn’t.  And many sexual health professionals dispute the very concept of sexual addiction.  Still, there are times when porn use can become problematic in a relationship, and, there are times when sexual appetite and sexual behaviors become compulsive and seem to resemble substance addictions.  Among younger men, erectile dysfunction and inhibited ejaculation can be associated with excessive porn use—but not always. To learn more about the effects of long term porn use and sexual addiction, schedule an appointment with Dr. Sara.

“The bitter cultural debate about sexually explicit media misses a key point. Pornography is bad for sex. Very bad. It causes or contributes to all of men’s major sex problems: hang-ups about penis size, involuntary ejaculation, erection impairment, and ejaculation difficulties. It also completely misrepresents how women become sexually aroused and experience erotic fulfillment.”
