Is Watching Porn Bad For You?

We believe that your personal sexual stimulation is your choice if it does not hurt others. If you are curious about the morality of watching pornography, we encourage you to make an informed decision. Here are some points that are commonly overlooked in global education systems and mainstream media. Just as it took decades for society to believe in science that has shown that cigarette smoking is harmful, we are learning a similar lesson with porn in our present world.  With all this new information gathered from research and scientific studies, it is time for society to accept that pornography is harmful. Science and research show us how pornography damages the brain, damages relationships, and negatively affects society in general.

Missing L O V E!
Commercial pornography is not about love. Not that sex and love must always be united, but rather these movies show that the partners believe in sexual self-confidence and express no affection as a precedent for sex. But this is a precedent in most real-life relationships. Pornography sets expectations that sex is almost never with someone you love. Instead, sex is informal, do not need the basics of trust and respect, and have zero influence (have they ever seen an acrobatic session after the scene?).
Millennials say that "free culture" is no problem. The Justin Garcia (2013) review describes how links contribute to loneliness, low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. Among the extensive documentation, statistics show that 78% of people in the scene overestimate the level of comfort of their partner with a sexual commitment. It is important to know that how pornography sets the standard for sexual cultures and the effects of sexual intercourse.

Brain Gets High
Having sex is the # 1 priority for our brains. In fact, orgasm causes the most natural stimulation of the brain system on feeling good. When a human organ reward circuit is activated, this activation is mediated by the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine is infamous because of its role in all addiction pathways. Connect the circuits that look from the brain. This type of search behavior is actually stronger than the feeling of reward from your brain. It invites addiction and ultimately you will become addicted to porn.

Way to Addiction
In short, addiction is a repetition of specific behaviors that make us feel good. We feel good because we release certain hormones like dopamine. The more dopamine we release, the better we feel and the chances are we want to repeat the same behavior. Dopamine is fed up with novelty, which means that new and enjoyable experiences will cause our brains to release more dopamine than similar ones until the moment we get to the Coolidge effect.      
                  
Availability Kills the Curiosity
High-speed internet is a game changer. With unrestricted access and unlimited new material, it is easy for users to have long and stimulating sessions of consistently high doses of dopamine. With access to graphical content, users can always see something new and exciting. The unlimited access of Internet is adding fuel to the fire for the Generation. For them, it is very cool to watch porn and to show their masculine personality to their peers.

A Connection with Emotions
Interestingly, many powerful emotions associated with the use of pornography, such as fear and release of adrenaline anxiety, increase the intensity of experience. That's why many users are targeting ever-alert graphic content. High Utilization of the dopamine pathway in the brain causes your brain to be hypersensitive to looking for pornography desensitizes and almost everything else. If you listen to Gary Wilson in his TEDx talk, you will be more informed.

An Energy Drainer for your Phallus
This can cause erectile dysfunction and reduced libido if something has caught your attention, you should. Using pornography can lead to erectile dysfunction and decreased sexual desire. This is a huge problem in the generation that grew up with high-speed pornography. Constant stimulation causes your brain to not feel pleasure in real life. We encourage you to create your own opinions, but if you are interested in learning more, Your Brain on Porn is the perfect to start with.

Change the Way you see Her
How many pornographic scenes begin when both sides actively express the desire for a sexual agreement? Not much ... most scenes put men into coercive roles that encourage aggression and will not accept the answer. They rely on the story that women always want secret sex and you have to touch them a bit. As long as the actors agree, seeing the scene as a personal erotic fantasy is fine, but something we have to recognize is that; for many children, Porn is sex education. As an adult, you can look at the scene and realize that what is happening is not a real life, but as a child, this distinction is not so clear. Think about two-thirds of men at the age of 13 and more than a third of women exposed to pornography. Children who were exposed exhibited less progressive attitudes towards gender, and higher rates of sexual harassment in women.

Miles Away from Reality
These attitudes have consequences in real life. Pornography maintains a misogynist culture that in turn makes sexual harassment an attack and much more acceptable. This is called as a culture of rape. Do you think the term is too strong? Consider this: one out of four pupils survives a rape or attempted rape. Check your stats. If you are a father, talk to your son. Do not let the conversation "discomfort" prevent you from having an important talk. Discuss the harmful way in which pornography depicts women and how consent works in real life. We can ask you that the worst case is too common.

What about Women in Industry?
We mention that the effects of pornography as a means of sexual education are strong and dangerous, but what about people involved? Chronic degradation and objectification of women is just the beginning. Sex trafficking, forced prostitution, and nonconsensual sex become a source of pornography. Usually, anonymous answer details the amount of damage.
