Masturbation, Porn and Erectile Dysfunction

Although it's not true in every case of erectile dysfunction, there is a definite link between masturbation, porn and erectile dysfunction. Sexual function problems such as erectile dysfunction arise due to the fact that masturbation and porn require different sexual programs in the brain to 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. The confusion can manifest as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and being unable to ejaculate. These issues are a frequent result from ongoing masturbation and the use of porn.

Masturbation and Erectile Dysfunction

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 the muscles supporting your penis don't.

In addition to this, 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 can lead to you 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 believe that you have a definite erection problem. Ongoing worry and performance anxiety can lead to losing a hard erection during masturbation sessions as well, as you give your brain conflicting messages.

Porn and Erectile Dysfunction

It's important to note that 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 may be worrying about his ability to fulfil a live partner if they don't look and act 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 worry and anxiety that event will occur again. This can lead to 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. He can safely masturbate up to twice daily and to occasionally watch porn, but needs to be aware that masturbation is a very different act from having sex with a real partner. 

In order to avoid erectile dysfunction 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.
