Porn Addiction Spoils Relationships Study

In Sex on January 18, 2013 at 20:02

A recent study reveals that Porn spoils Relationships.

 

Another study indicates that it actually improves Relationships.

 

A point to be noted is that Porn watching releases sexual tension in normal individuals as is Masturbation.

 

But for an unstable individual it increase libido and makes one indulge in Perversions and commit acts like Rape.

 

  • Leading sex and relationship experts find men suffer performance anxiety because of ‘impressive’ feats in porn
  • Women feel insecure about their bodies and feel pressured to ‘perform’
  • ‘Vanilla’ sex is becoming less desirable, while porn addiction is increasing
  • ‘More young people are learning about sex through porn, and it’s having a devastating effect on their perceptions.’

Eighty six per cent of the therapists questioned believe porn has had a negative effect on relationships and 90 per cent have seen an increase in relationship problems due to porn in recent years.

As porn is now so easily accessible, Cosmopolitan was also told that ‘vanilla’ sex is becoming less desirable, while porn addiction – once seen a very niche sexual problem – is on the increase.

Almost all of the therapists surveyed (94 per cent) have seen an increase in incidents of porn addiction and 63 per cent believe porn increases men’s expectations of sex with their partner.

Needless to say, porn has become a ticking time bomb in relationships and is crushing men’s and women’s confidence in the bedroom

 

More and more men are suffering from performance anxiety because of the ‘impressive’ feats they see in porn, whilst women feel insecure about their bodies and feel pressured to ‘perform’.

Porn is becoming such a problem for some that 85 per cent of experts think porn has had a negative effect on women’s confidence and 67 per cent agree that women are under pressure to behave like porn stars in the bedroom.

‘Porn can affect men’s ability to form relationships with real women, rather than those on their laptop,’ said Psychosexual therapist Carol Featherstone.

Psychosexual therapist Karen Lobb-Rossini says, ‘More and more young people (girls as well as boys) are learning about sex through porn, and it’s having a devastating effect on their perception of themselves and their bodies.’
