Real life vs. Fake life

Consider the following situations.

  • A young boy of 19 years expresses his feelings and talks about the sexual problem:

Most of the while having sex with my girlfriend, she always complains that she never feels that I am present there with her while having sex. She always feels something is missing between us and it takes her long to reach to the orgasm.

I get longer and harder erection while I watch porn movie but when I start having a real sex with women, I keep struggling to keep my erection for longer which I couldn’t.

  • A young married man talks about how difficult he finds it to have sex with his wife when he explains his problem:

I always think of a porn movie which I have watched recently while having sex with my wife. If I do not think of porn movie then I may not enjoy the activity. I prefer watching porn than having real sex.

Disconnect with real life

It is seen that some men, mostly those in their sexual prime, get linked to the porn websites and the porn movies emotionally, so much so that they become disconnected with the real world completely. It causes the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, delayed orgasm, and out of control erections, which bring complete failure in the area of sexual life.

The problems relating to the sex are directly affecting the relationships, and instead of trust, confidence, and love, the young couples face the problems relating to doubts, disbelief, and hatred.

The internet has opened many new features and facilities for us to enjoy our lives, but some of the factors, such as sex and porn, have been disturbing the lives of men, especially the young men and women who are suffering more. The problem needs to be addressed before it becomes bigger and becomes out-of-reach.

All about porn-induced ED

According to the case study:

A young man of 19 years, a college student, started dating a girl of same age from his class. It started well between them. They passed time with each other and started liking each other. Once they had sex, the experience, as narrated by the boy, was horrible. The experience of having sex was not encouraging. He described it as a very poor performance, which he could not have imagined.

They tried it few more times, but it was not as they thought it should be, and that made the boy feel embarrassed. At last, the girl and the boy separated and went to different colleges. The boy talked to his doctor, and, after the medical check-up, the doctor found the boy is quite normal.

However, the boy suffered from sexual dysfunction several times while having sex with the girl. Although the boy still feels that the girl is attractive, he still experienced erectile dysfunction. This is a serious problem that a young man may face today. 

Reasons behind ED

  • The symptoms of ED are commonly found among young men as frequently as they used to find with older men. Regardless of age, the problem has become part of the younger generation. According to the research, it has been seen that the excess use of pornography has created a problem of erectile dysfunction. It has been found that the people who watch porn for a longer period of time are likely to suffer from ED than those who do not watch it at all.
  • In the above case study, the boy of 19 years is addicted to porn so much that he watches it every day, when not in the company of his girlfriend for several hours. The effect of watching the porn continuously can make a person lose his interest in the real sexual encounters completely.
  • Most of the young men who suffer from erectile dysfunction can find it difficult to deal with during sexual activity. The men either find it difficult to manage during the sexual activity or their partners feel ignored or unsatisfied. It may be seen that such activities are difficult to manage and even to reach orgasm, as it takes longer for the people to indulge in the sexual activity.
  • The men find that it is not easy to maintain the erection for longer during the real sexual play. The men who spend more time watching porn always suffer during the sexual activities performed in reality with real woman.
  • Most importantly, it has been seen that the dysfunction manifests with real world partners and not with porn. It suggests that the problem is with the emotion or due to the psychology of the person involved in it. The porn movies make a person get involved emotionally more than having any physical activity. It tries to disconnect the physical and the emotional world, causing an emotional and psycho-sexual disconnection with the real world partners as ED, DE, anorgasmia, and the like.
  • It is very awful for the men who suffer the most, and they also make their partners, who try to act romantically and are in love with them, suffer. It results very horrifically when the young man keeps his interest alive and helps his partner, but he himself struggles to reach an orgasm and fails miserably.
  • The real problem with watching porn for a long time is that it more or less reduces the interest in the real sexual activity and the sexual pleasure of real life. Whether watching porn is good or bad is another topic of discussion; however, when a person watches porn for a long time, say 4 to 5 hours daily, when he can watch a variety of porn movies which are close to his fantasies, it may cause problems in real life. It gives immense pleasure, and he can masturbate to porn many times during a short period of time. The interest in the actual sexual activity will be reduced. The repetitive process of watching porn trains your mind to create a system which can cause an erection by pressing muscle. It makes your mind addicted to it, rather than indulging in the real sexual activity.

While excessively watching porn may cause ED and other sexual issues, it is important to note that this problem can be mitigated.

Good news for men suffering from porn-induced ED

For the men who really want to enjoy the real sexual life and who want to satisfy their partners, it is important to control themselves and stop watching porn on the internet, where it is easily available.

It is one of the simple but highly effective ways of getting the sexual pleasure back in life and making the life more enjoyable, rather than wasting time by watching porn and losing the sexual appetite completely.
