Porn Reduces Sexual Ability

Researchers say that in every four patients among Erectile Dysfunction, one of them is young. The recent research has been published in the journal of Sexual Medicine.

Erectile Dysfunction is a problem related to the erection of the penis. And it is commonly known as impotence. Generally, this disease is seen in the men of late ’40s more.

It was found in the research on the Dutch in 2002 that only about 2 percent of patients suffering from erectile dysfunction are under the age of forty among. Although both researches are from foreign countries, the condition of Bangladesh will be the same according to the sexual experts of Bangladesh.

Venereologists of our country believe that this disease has increased among young people because of porn addiction. They say that online pornography has a serious effect on erectile dysfunction. Because watching porn provokes them to masturbate and this reduces their sexual interest. Some people masturbate before intercourse as a strategy to have longer durational sex. It abates their sexual excitement.

Another reason for this disease is to have mental stress for a long time. The association of pornography with stress is that pornography is helpful to reduce stress. As a result, the tendency of watching porn among those who suffer from long-term stress becomes relatively high.

Watching pornography makes our brain and body both become accustomed to the excitement of masturbation. And that reduces the real excitement getting from touch. Therefore, it hinders the natural intercourse.

The whole thing is misinterpreted in our country, especially among the peddlers who sell excitants on the footpath. In their words, “the sexual ability has decreased because that particular person had punished himself at his young age.”

Actually, this is not the case. Rather, watching pornography and masturbating repress sexual desire. That is the reason why these problems arise.
