Reel vs Real - Is Porn Destroying Our Sex Lives?

India ranks in the top tier of porn viewers in the world, and the effects become even more visible when we look around. Porn addiction shares similar side effects as a substance abuse disorder.

Ever since the internet came into existence, the world has had access to pornographic content. From nudes to full-fledged production houses dedicated to it, the porn industry seems to have taken over the world.

Porn has always been shunned and looked at with disgust, for most, simply because it includes the act of sex. For others, more valid arguments seem to be accounted for. The feminists correctly pointing out the objectification, psychologists pointing out the effects on family and marriage and sociology, the effects on interpersonal relationships.

Now, with everything comes its pros and cons and porn is no exception. There have been some great sex-positive changes that porn has been an enabler for.

Making sex a not-so-big deal, and normalizing hookups and, casual sex encounters, it has done its due diligence when it comes to how we perceive sex. It has also helped gain respect for sex work and sex workers alike, allowing us to learn to accept the two.

The porn industry has also helped us explore sexuality and gender, and more than anything else helped us sexually explore ourselves. Normalizing homosexual sex and giving the community some sense of representation.

But, like any other media content, it has its fallbacks too. And with this, the effects seem more longlasting and harmful.

We've heard about porn addiction and we've all brushed it off as "not me", but the issue is more real than it seems. And, the effects of porn addiction are even more concerning.

India ranks in the top tier of porn viewers in the world, and the effects become even more visible when we look around. Porn addiction shares similar side effects as a substance abuse disorder.

Compulsive viewing of pornography can lead to the cycle of addiction, which involves a craving stage where the person is preoccupied or anticipating the viewing of porn. This is followed by actively viewing porn and then experiencing a negative emotional state, where the person can become irritable or hostile.

But, addiction aside, porn still has a huge effect on casual viewers as well. It impacts family life, personal relationships, and sexual health.

Porn And Family Life

Married men and women who watch porn feel less satisfied with their partners and less emotionally attached to their spouses. Watching porn also acts as a pathway to infidelity and divorce and is frequently a major factor in family disruptions.

Most porn viewers also experience a loss of interest in sexual intercourse altogether. Sexual activity, especially climaxing when associated with graphic content can cause a disinterest if it isn't just like in the movies.

It also leads to a loss of interest in good family relations and focuses more on sexual gratification and pleasure than emotional connect, trust and other values.

Porn And Personal Life

Pornography as we mentioned earlier, is addictive and the effects of this addiction are more often than not, very hostile. Users tend to become desensitized to the type of pornography they use, become bored with it, and then seek more perverse forms of pornography.

Men who view porn regularly have a higher tolerance for abnormal sexuality, including rape, sexual aggression, and sexual promiscuity. The prolonged consumption of porn by men produces stronger notions of women as commodities or as "sex objects."

Child-sex offenders are more likely to view pornography regularly or to be involved in its distribution.

Porn also causes greater sexual permissiveness, which in turn leads to a greater risk of out-of-wedlock births and STDs. These, in turn, lead to even more weaknesses and debilities.

Many adolescents who watch porn initially feel shame, diminished self-confidence, and sexual uncertainty, but these feelings quickly shift to unadulterated enjoyment with regular viewing leading to addiction.

Porn And Sexual Health

The rise in porn-induced erectile dysfunction is something to be alarmed about. Frequently watching porn can lead to erections which can only be induced by hardcore pornography. Porn consumption then becomes a sort of psychological conditioning which creates performance anxiety.

The more you watch porn the more likely you are to not enjoy actual sexual intercourse because it seems far off from the fantasy-like, unrealistic pornographic content. Regular porn watchers are less likely to respond to regular, real-world sexual activity, and increasingly rely on porn for release.

This follows for women and men alike, the lack of interest in sexual activities and not enjoying real life sex scenarios are not gender-specific.

Though watching a little bit of porn every now and then has very little impact in our daily lives, watching it every day and excessively has long-lasting permanent effects. So the next time you feel like you want to enjoy a harmless porn video, think to yourself - Have I watched too much?
