Porn in Numbers

Also, be aware that this is nothing to be embarrassed about. Most people have watched porn, in fact, 30% of all web traffic is used to watch porn ((Pornography: ‘Everybody’ is watching it, statistics say, Apr 9, 2012 link)), 40 million U.S. adults regularly visit pornographic websites, 10% of adults admit to internet sex addiction, 20% of men sometimes watch porn at work and every second $3,075.64 are being spent on online porn.

Why Stop Watching Porn?

Is porn really that bad? Should you really give up on it? Aren’t there more serious vices than watching pornography to feel better sometimes?

Well, sure, there are worse things, but ask yourself this:

Is pornography stealing time from your life?

Does porn make you feel bad about yourself? Do you sometimes feel empty and worthless?

Does it affect your real relationships with other people? Do you sometimes feel lonely or isolated?

Do you sometimes use porn to avoid the problems and challenges they face in life?

If you answered some of these questions with yes, then porn is taking away from your life. You deserve a better life, and in order to get it, you need to quit porn.

What’s more is that porn-induced sexual dysfunction is a growing problem: more young, otherwise healthy men have trouble getting hard erections during intercourse ((Porn-Induced Sexual Dysfunction Is a Growing Problem, July 11, 2011, Psychology Today))

Is Porn Really Addictive?

Most people do not think of watching pornography as an addiction.

But when you watch porn, something happens in your brain: neurochemicals get released that create a “natural high”. Here are some of the chemicals that researchers found get triggered in the brains of porn addicticts when viewing porn.

  • dopamine
  • serotonin
  • norepinephrine
  • testosterone
  • endorphines (endogenous morphine)
  • phenylethylamine
  • oxytocin

It’s these neurochemicals that create the intense emotions which get you hooked on porn, and keep you coming back for more.

Addiction experts say that porn works just like a drug from a standpoint of brain science.

What’s worse: after you experience sexual excitement so many times while watching porn, another process starts to take place in your brain: neuroadaption.

That means your neural circuitry gets rewired in a way that perpetuates the action which caused the brain reaction (watching porn).

What’s also tricky about porn is that it directly appeals to one of human’s most deeply ingrained survival instincts: procreation. It’s one of the most powerful psychological triggers.

Sex addiction councilors have a saying that “porn is the crack cocaine of sex addictions”, because it is more addictive than other kinds of sexual excitement and more widespread than any other form of sex addiction.

But not everybody who watches porn is addicted… so are you?

Has gotten pornwatching out of control? Do you sometimes feel frustrated about your sexual behavior? Can’t stop watching porn?

Tried Quitting Porn Before?

Maybe you’ve tried to quit porn countless times, but you keep coming back to it.

And if that is the case, if you keep trying to quit porn and fail at it again and again, you’ll end up thinking:

“What’s wrong with me? I got to be the most broken, flawed, weak person in the world.”

But that’s not the case – you’re have fallen victim to porn addiction, and that’s not a flaw of character. It’s a problem, and what you need is help with addiction, not feelings or remorse or guilt. But how to quit porn?

How To Break Porn Addiction?

Fortunately you do not need to go to therapy or anything like that.

All you need to do is to “reset” your natural sexual needs and take control of your unwanted sexual behaviors.

Your sex drive is a powerful source of energy, and you need to channel that energy into something. The healthiest way to do so is to direct it into mutually satisfying relationships. You’ll be able to attract the right partner and enjoy a fulfilling sex life that makes you feel great.

Hypnosis can help you to break free from porn addiction, because it allows you to quickly and easily reprogram your subconscious thought patterns and change your emotional response to porn. You’ll find it a lot easier to resist the temptation of watching porn, because hypnotic suggestions can break subconscious compulsion loops that make you watch porn again and again. This helps you to get rid of your porn addiction.

This is how it works:

  • get the hypnosis download
  • make sure you are relaxed and comfortable
  • make sure you will be undisturbed
  • listen to the hypnotic addiction treatment with your headphones anywhere and anytime you want

The university of Sydney also published a story in May 2012 ((Study exposes secret world of porn addiction, 10 May 2012, University of Sydney press release)), here some excerpts from their press release.

[…] 43 percent of those surveyed started to view porn between the ages of 11 and 13, 47 percent spend between 30 minutes and three hours a day watching porn. More than half of porn users surveyed were married or in de-facto relationships and 85 percent were male.

The researchers found excessive users had severe social and relationship problems and had often lost their jobs or been in trouble with the law as a result of their addiction. Some users escalated their viewing to more extreme and often illegal material.

[…]

about 20 percent of participants said that they preferred the excitement of watching porn to being sexually intimate with their partner. About 14 percent had formed a relationship with other online users, 30 percent acknowledged that their work performance suffered due to excessive viewing, and about 18 percent were preoccupied with fantasising when they were not online.

Dr. Mark Peluso, director of the Parton Health Center also noticed a surge in young men who suffer from erectile dysfunction in the last three years ((Parton sees rise in erectile dysfunction, May 3, 2012, Middlebury Campus)).

In a typical office visit, Peluso will ask his patient a series of questions: Are you attracted to your partner? Are you intimate? Do you have a sexually inhibiting medical condition? Are you using substances, such as alcohol, that impair sexual performance? Do you feel attracted to other men? According to Peluso, the answer to all of these questions is usually “no.”

However, “in the majority of cases, the patients were habitual viewers of pornography, and had no difficulty with sexual performance when they were by themselves,” Peluso said.

Noting the increased use of online pornography, Peluso suggests an inverse relationship between porn and potency — as porn use increases, so do sexual insufficiencies.

Dr. Peruso believes that habitual porn watching can cause neuroadaptive changes in the brain which can impair sexual function.

One of the reasons might be overstimulation which in turn leads to desensitization. “Just” sexual intercourse isn’t enough to stimulate men who have become addicted to professionally produced hardcore porn.

In 2011 the urologist Carlo Foresta found out in a study that 70% of men who suffered from ED (erectile dysfunction) watched porn regularly, and he suspected that the number might even be higher than this (because some of the study participants probably wouldn’t want to admit watching porn).

Another side-effect is the so-called “condom collapse syndrome” – which means that men don’t get or maintain a hard erection when wearing a condom because it reduces the sensory stimulation, which is particularly troubling when men are already desensitized.

There really are plenty of good reasons to break free from porn addiction. It’s time to get started…
