Worried Young Chinese Man Sitting At Desk Using Laptop At Home

Sir, I’m having trouble getting it up. My penis doesn’t rise when I think sex. I need mental stimulation. I read some articles saying that’s porn-induced ED . Does porn-induced ED exist???

    Pornography does not induce ED. Those who say it does have not followed the research.

    So your erections no longer rise from sexual thoughts alone? If you’re over 30, that’s normal. With age—and sometimes in young men—fantasies or sexual thoughts by themselves lose their ability to raise erections. As men pass 30 and sometimes earlier, they need penis stroking, licking, or sucking to raise and maintain erections. If men can’t raise erections from their own fantasies, but can with porn, porn bashers contend that these men have become dependent on porn—or addicted to it—and need it to have erections. No, it’s often simply a function of aging and the fact that their own fantasies have gone stale and they need new ones. Zillions are available on porn. Turning to porn fantasies to get it up doesn’t mean you have porn-induced ED.

    In addition, have you ever heard of the refractory period (RP)? That’s the amount of time after orgasm/ejaculation when men can’t raise the next erection even if they stroke hard. In teens and men in their twenties, RP may last only a few minutes to half an hour, so young men can get it up again pretty quickly after coming. But after 30 or so, RP lengthens. In men over 60, it might last as long as 12-24 hours. So men over 30 stroke to porn and come. Then they try to have sex again before their RP is over, and can’t get it up. They conclude that porn caused this, and web sites published by sexually ignorant porn bashers confirm it. Actually, the real issue is just their lengthening RP.

    Finally, worry/anxiety/stress is a major contributor to ED. Stress triggers release of hormones that constrict the arteries that carry blood into the penis, limiting blood flow into the organ. It’s that blood that powers erections. If stress reduces blood flows into the penis, erections become harder to raise and less firm when they do. In other words worrying about porn-induced ED may cause enough stress to cause it. My advice: Stop worrying about porn-induced ED. Porn miseducates men about sex and women, but it doesn’t cause ED. The cause is usually a combination of stress, lengthening RP, and stale fantasies.

    I wish you great sex.
