Many men who suffer from sexual dysfunction are surprised to learn that watching porn may be the culprit. Porn affects the body in a variety of ways. Many men with sexual dysfunction discover that when they stop watching porn, their condition improves.
Many young men in their 20’s and 30’s are experiencing porn induced sexual dysfunction. Many men, particularly those with an intense usage of porn, Internet or otherwise, have been reporting problems with listless erection, deferred ejaculation and the inability to become aroused by sexual contact with a partner. This problem may or may not have a psychological component, and can usually be successfully treated.
 

Increasingly, you will notice a return to morning erections and sexual desire; eventually leading to complete erectile health and desire to be with a real partner and extreme sexual pleasure. If the avoidance of porn and masturbation is too difficult or does not seem to work, you may be in need of further treatment. Some men find it too difficult to eliminate porn completely, so they try to wean themselves off of porn by gradually decreasing the amount of time they spend viewing porn. This method is not recommended, as it will only prolong the sexual dysfunction and stall recovery efforts.  Much like other addictions, breaking the porn habit should be done with the cold turkey method.

Psychotherapy

Seeking treatment for any type of addiction can be difficult, but for compulsive sexual behavior it can be especially difficult because it is uncomfortable to discuss.[1] People who suffer from uncontrollable sexual compulsions often battle other addictions or mental health disorders including obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety or depression. Psychotherapy may be right for you in terms of treatment for compulsive sexual behavior.

Psychotherapy may be able to help you identify the negative sexual behaviors that you are becoming accustomed to and replace them with healthier options. Sex therapists, general counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists are all trained professionals who can provide guidance and offer psychotherapy treatment for porn-induced sexual dysfunction.

Medication

Certain medications may be able to help treat your compulsive sexual behaviors. Some medications such as antidepressants and mood stabilizers act on the brain chemicals that are responsible for obsessive thoughts and behaviors. It may take some time to find what medication works best for you and your situation; this will depend upon whether or not you suffer from additional mental health conditions or addictions.

Support groups can be a helpful way to deal with sexual addiction. Aside from helping you to address your problem, these groups can also educate you further on your disorder and support you in finding treatment options and resources.  Self-help groups may be found on the Internet or hold meetings locally. Generally, the support groups model the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Many men suffer from porn-induced sexual dysfunction, if you feel as though you have a problem do some research, contact your doctor or search the Internet for forums that discuss similar issues. Porn-induced sexual dysfunction is reversible and in some cases, treatment is quick and easy.
