The Link Between Masturbation, Porn and Erectile Dysfunction

Although not true in every case of ED, the link between masturbation, porn and erectile dysfunction is common. This is because masturbation and porn require different sexual programs in the brain. These muscle programs are different than those used in sexual intercourse with a partner.

This mismatch in sexual programming can eventually result in the man’s brain becoming confused during sexual intimacy with a real partner.

This confusion can result in erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and being unable to ejaculate. This is a frequent result from ongoing masturbation and the use of porn.

Masturbation and ED

Predominantly using your hand as your sexual tool can cause weakness in the structural muscles which support the penis. Your arm and hand get a great workout during a masturbation session, but your penis muscles don’t.

When you masturbate, your hand is controlling the pace and the intensity of the stroke. Constantly using your hand to self stimulate detracts from your awareness of the sensations created by penetrating a partner sexually. This leads you to feeling like you are losing your sex power.

Because your penis isn’t being exercised, you may experience a feeling of weakness or numbness when you attempt sexual intercourse.

Weakness or numbness during sexual intercourse causes you to worry that you have a definite erection problem. This ongoing worry causes ED to start occurring during masturbation sessions as well.

Porn and Erectile Dysfunction

Porn does not cause erectile dysfunction directly. The problem with watching porn occurs when the male starts believing that he requires intense visual stimulation to be able to get an erection. This isn’t entirely true. But now he is worrying about his ability to fulfil a live partner if (she) doesn’t look like a porn star.

Performance anxiety starts confusing his brain which promptly makes him lose his erection.

Due to his addiction to porn to feel sexual fulfilment he now also has an unrealistic view of sexual actions. What is required to fulfil a partner sexually and how to bring himself and his partner to orgasm.

After a man has lost his erection hardness once, his mind then becomes consumed with worrying that event will occur again. This causes an ongoing erectile dysfunction problem which often continues, even if he stops masturbating or watching porn.

In summary

The link between masturbation, porn and erectile dysfunction is obvious. Masturbation and porn cause erectile dysfunction when the male’s brain becomes confused, whether he is alone or with a partner.

A man can safely masturbate up to twice daily and to occasionally watch porn. But he needs to be aware that masturbation is a very different act from having sex with a partner. In order to avoid ED either while masturbating or during intercourse he must understand the correct thought/action sequences required. These are necessary to remove anxiety, get an erection, keep his erection and stay in control of when he ejaculates.
