Is Porn Harmful

It is not so hard these days to watch those naked consensual sex and sex in its varying degrees in pornography. We must thank it for the internet being so more immersive. It is omnipresent, and men love to get a view to fulfill their sexual needs.
Irrespective of people’s choice of food and dressing across the world, one thing is quite interesting that porn does not discriminate between the viewers, and every bit of its video is lured by every man and even women.

Many stats are solidifying that porn is a highly consumed product; still it is not immune to society’s flaks for being regarded as the society’s ill.

What is more surprising is that many ruling governments in different parts of the world have labeled this as a hazard to public health.  
Being available easily on the internet round the clock, the virtual reality has taken porn by storms. This is an important aspect of porn being criticized by the different boards.

Researchers fear that the impact of virtual reality experience involving porn viewing could be harmful in many ways. Individuals using VR technology for pornography could assume themselves as the protagonists, instead of being just an observer. This is likely to blur the line, differentiating a reality and fantasy. At the same time, an easily achievable feat in the form of porn could damage relationships as well as foster some harmful behavioral changes in the observers.

There is no exact definition or explanation as how porn affects the way people lead their life. The scientists are so confused with no soundproof explanations in their hands. In order to establish their views on the harmfulness of porn or their welfares towards people is based on the people specific experiences and research based studies.
Towards Sexual Violence
In a proposed legislation, pornography has been seen as a downer for the society. It is stated by the Virginia lawmakers, that pornography is an addiction, which becomes integral to men and women in their everyday activity. It is believed that it supports the normalization of rape, increases sex related violence as well increases risky sexual behavior, advocates for group sex and also decreases the desire to settle down in life.
However, there is another study which does not show anything harmful related to pornography.
It is based on the behaviors of perpetrators, rendering violent crimes using the techniques of porn. This triggers an apprehension if porn is really a setback for the society and human development. This inquiry has been explored for decades. Say, a professor at the University of Copenhagen reviewed crimes involving the traces of sexual assault in Denmark, Germany and Sweden. These countries were analyzed in the first place as they legalized porn during the period of the 60s and 70s. Surprisingly, the scientist did not find any correlation between a crime and decriminalization. In addition, there was no rise at all in child sexual abuse, and also rape.
However, in the recent years, there has been a great change in the content of porn, which uses a lot of aggression. It is believed that aggression towards female co-actor is aimed at intensifying the excitement of pleasure by exerting dominance rather than submission. Another study in 2009 proved that there is no link between porn and crime. And anything related to porn does not contribute to an increased violence.
 

Can Porn Be A Source Of Addiction?
 This question often pops out as it is assumed to trigger harmful effects on the brain and health? The addiction does exist, and it is mostly manifested by the user through physical withdrawal effects if denied the access. However, there is no science which can prove that it is addictive. It does not cause any inherent complications though; individuals with certain health issues can experience the ill effects of excessive porn viewing.

In most cases, pornography can result in some risk factors like depression, anxiety and also bipolar disease for the individuals who watch a greater amount of contents. It can have another explanation that depression leads people to develop anxiety and this phenomenon in turn encourages them to masturbate to the naked bodies in the porn. 

Hence, this can be termed as a symptom, rather than a heath complication.

On another important note, when you watch pornography with contents involving female and male actors, pursuing consensual sex, it has good benefits on your sexual relationship. The act of feminist pornography helps two of you become highly aroused behind the closed doors and become creative to enhance your sexual experiences in many layers. Maybe, watching porn build a strong relationship with your partner and keep it intact.

How Porn Can Actually Help?
Many men do away with infidelity, and enjoy the solo session of sexual pleasure to porn. When you have a heightened amount of libido with certain gaps in a relationship, porn can help you satiate your sexual needs without ruining the sanctity of a relationship. 

There may be a dozen of reasons why there is a gap, perhaps your partner does not want sex, or she is busy with her children or there is a health issue. But, porn helps to compensate that gap in your libido.

It has been long accused the way porn has reflected its effects on the sexual lives of a couple. Porn actually gets between the sexual lives between couples. According to research, men who watched more porn don’t get that satisfaction with their sexual partners. On the other hand, women who watched porn with their partners seemed to be more satisfied with their partners. In addition, watching porn together builds a strong connection between a couple and they are twice as likely to be satisfied with their acts, rather than doing it alone.

The Impact Of Porn On The Brain
When you watch hard-core porn, it stimulates your nerve endings in the genitals, arousing an intense erection, which leads to a heightened orgasm. This happens as your brain reflects the mirror neuron effects, which directs us to imitate actions what other people do. So, with the activation of mirror neuron response, the erections tend to be harder. And hence, we are more likely to copy the act, we watch on the erotic videos.  
 
It’s contradictory if pornography is harmful or not. But as long as you are not affected and leading a normal sexual life, porn is ok. Since there are so many thumbs down for pornography as well, we are looking forward to more research based theories to come to a real conclusion about this conflicting issue.
