That is why some people are giving up pornography.
More men are questioning whether pornography is a healthy habit or is detrimental to sex.

All it takes is a click or two and you can access enough porn to last your entire life, but is that good for you?

This is an issue that online users have been debating for years, especially since the emergence of XXX sites like PornHub. It is also a central issue of the NoFap movement, people who are giving up masturbation for long periods of time.

But how is porn interfering with our brains? In what ways does seeing such unrealistic sex impact sex life? These are all interesting questions that appeared in a forum on Reddit.

One user asked: What are your thoughts about porn negatively affecting sex life?

Here are some of the best answers:

Marky6 writes:

I personally used to see it every day, but one day I thought it had to change and decided I did not need it any more. I think it made me look at women as sexual objects and not as human beings.

That said, I’ve been in the NoFap movement for about 36 or 37 days. It has definitely changed since I started (more energy, more confidence). I’m trying to get to 60 days.

RealFoxD says adult movies have an impact on their relationships:

Porn harms my ability to maintain intimacy and sexual complicity in a relationship, for all the reasons pointed out by the critics.

And when I’m single, it tends to take away my motivation to go out and find a partner, often dragging me to an emotionally negative standard as a result.

Porn is destructive, because I ran a page of Terry Crews and I left that habit.

jewfro667 blames porn for its difficulty in maintaining an erection :

It’s hard for me to have an erection if I see too much pornography in a week. It takes a week without porn to get through.

Coidzor says that porn is not necessarily bad:

That’s because it may have a negative effect, but it does not automatically affect all people the same way.

It is the same thing to have people who drink responsibly all thier life and others who drink little, then become alcoholic.

People vary, as surprising as it may seem.

beltwaytr has an interesting answer from the point of view of a skeptic:

I think there are many misconceptions about pornography that are vague or just a myth. Like hearing that masturbation causes blindness, among other things. As a man who was on both sides of the barricade, I would say from my perspective that frequent masturbation (not porn) causes disturbances.

Joining “NoFap” can have a placebo effect if you do not have a real problem. If you have a genuine addition for porn and masturbation, then it’s a good way to complement your therapy, so you should seek help from a professional.

Addition of any gender can and actually disrupts normal daily life. If you’re missing out on school, work, or most things in everyday life then you have a serious problem.

Now, I personally prefer sex to masturbation, but additionally it is almost guaranteed that I will see some porn during the day.

However, neither my sexual desire nor porno consumption prevents me from working and lifting weights seven days a week. My life does not stop magically when I feel like having sex and it will never stop.

And from the feminine point of view, khaki53 gave a good answer:

As a woman, I think it can change the way men see women and it can be worse for women you sleep with.

From my experience, sex with men who are very much into pornography is bad. The positions are fun and I like the variety, but it seems like I’m not even there. Looks like they’re using me. As a general rule, I do not have any orgasms and reinforces the idea that sex only revolves around men. I do not sleep with a man like that twice and I definitely do not go to meetings with them.
