12 Reasons Too Much Great Porn Can Be Terrible for Your Sex Life

Pornography; some call it art, others call it recreation. They may be right, but like everything else, too much of anything is not good. In this case, too much pornography is bad for your sex life. That’s right. If you are watching porn to turn you on for sex, it actually does the opposite of it.
The reality is that porn drills down on your subconscious as you unknowingly watch what you consider as art or recreation or well, a stimulator, if you may. Watching porn may be good if done once or a couple of times – just to see what it is or to get some sex tips. But if you watch pornography on a regular basis and make it a source of all your sex moves and pleasure, that is not good.
Watching porn can have negative implications on your overall sex life. It can affect your sex drive, your social skills and your mentality towards sex as an intimate act between two lovers. There are a lot more ways that porn can breakdown your sex life. In fact, here are 12 reasons why too much porn can be terrible for your sex life:

1. Unrealistic Expectations Towards Sex

media and pornographyHave you seen a porn video lately? You might have, and you probably noticed how unbelievably big these men’s nuclear reactor penises are. To add to that, they can last an hour without having to pause for a breath.
It’s kind of impossible to think that you can do that, too. You could have the stamina for it, but you can be sure you’ll blow your load somewhere in the middle of that hour.
Why can men in porn do it and you can’t? Two words: film making. Do you really think someone can last that long? This is what the media and pornography does to your brain. It gives you unrealistic expectations towards sex and your capabilities, which will eventually make you frustrated about yourself.

2. Comparison Of Partners

Women in porn are always hot. Well, hot in your point of view. Pornography today has a variety of categories that best suits your taste. But overall and whatever your taste it, porn has something to offer. You just got to have the right access. The thing is that women are supposed to be hot in porn films. It’s their body that they are showing, after all. That means you are expected to appreciate that body.
Appreciation is good, but it all goes downhill when you start to compare the women in porn versus your sex partner. With this, you will never be satisfied with the partners that you will have. This can come from watching too many unrealistic porn films.

3. Porn Kills The Intimacy Of Sex

Kills The Intimacy Of SexSo, may be porn has stories and some sort of role playing in them, but you should know that these are played by really good actors and actresses who can fake their pleasure.
Other than that, porn also objectifies sex as something that can be done with anyone or anything. The result? It kills the intimacy that you are supposed to feel during sex and replaces it with pure lust.
The thing is that sex is supposed to be shared between two people who are in love, or at least attracted to each other. This is where most of the pleasure emanates. If there is no mutual attraction, the intimacy just dies with it.

4. Porn Makes Sex Unsatisfying

If your partner is not as expressive as the one that you see in your porn collection, then you might find it unsatisfying and that’s just the beginning of it. Porn is created to give men and women the imagination and trigger their adventurous sides, but when overdone, it will lead you to asking, “What more is there that I can do or I can have?”
The result is you will always look for something more, even if everything is already given. You will no longer feel satisfied with a simple vanilla love-making, and this may even frustrate you.

5. Porn Us A Trigger For Sex Addiction

Sex AddictionThere’s a reason why sex is called love-making. It’s because you do it with the person you love, or at least the person you are sexually attracted to.
When you watch too much porn, it triggers a part of your brain that thinks it should have sex often or all the time. It’s called sex addiction.
When you have a sex addiction, you will no longer care who or what you do it with, as long as you get to have sex, and lots of it. The more sex you have, the less you will enjoy it. Satisfaction is impossible to achieve with a sex addiction. This is actually a serious condition and if you have it, you will need to get the help of an experienced professional.

6. Porn Can Decrease Your Confidence Or Self Esteem

You know how men in these porn films are always big down there. They have six packs like it’s the most natural thing. They can last long enough to give their partners four or five orgasms, too. You know how much effort you will have to make to even get close to that record? Yes, it’s a lot.
That right there destroys your confidence and self-esteem. It can make you feel inferior and unable. Well, you know what? You can pleasure your partner with your natural moves. Your deficiency is all in your head. As long as you objective is to pleasure yourself and your partner, nothing can go wrong with that and there is no need to watch porn.

7. From Real Sex To Masturbation

MasturbationHere’s what happens. You stay in your room and watch porn all day instead of going out and increasing your chances to meet a woman that you can spend time with.
Watching porn all day? You see the equation here? With the zero chance of meeting a woman, you end up masturbating and pleasuring yourself alone.
While that scenario is not sad enough, you are also depleting your chances to have actual sex with a woman if you hole yourself up in your room all day and watch those porn films.

8. It Makes You Objectify Women

Let’s get one thing straight. Women and men deserve equal respect for each other. When you watch porn, although you don’t think it does, it makes you start to objectify women as some sort of tool just to give you pleasure. That’s just wrong.
Men and women make love to give and take love. That’s the simplest of the equations in love-making. Watching porn destroys your respect for women even if you do not know it.

9. Porn Destroys “Making Love”

destroys the idea of intimacy and lovemakingWe call it “making love,” because it is an act of intimacy, and a venue for expressing your love or attraction to someone in the form of physical pleasure.
Pleasing someone is one way of showing them how you feel about them. When you watch porn, it just makes sex a plain and simple action of getting off.
Porn objectifies sex as a normal thing that can be done to anyone. It destroys the idea of intimacy and lovemaking.

10. Porn Will Make Sex Boring

You have endless choices of what to watch in the porn industry. It’s business after all, and they need to keep the business going by keeping things interesting. When they get your full attention, you will be gradually pulled toward them until you will find it hard to get out – until the idea of plain and simple sex is becomes mundane, boring and uneventful.

11. You Can Become A Sex Maniac

The difference between a sex addict and a sex maniac is that sex addicts just want to have sex a lot. Sex maniacs will want to have sex with anyone or anything, whether with will or forcefully. This is where rape cases spring from. When you watch porn, you get ideas and when you don’t get these ideas to work, you can get to a point when you will have to force other people – whether women or children – to do them for you just for pleasure.

12. Porn Takes Away Your Control Over Your Orgasms

watching pornIf none of the above scares you enough, then maybe this will. If you think that watching porn and masturbating will teach you to have full control of your orgasms, then you are wrong. It is actually the other way around. It will make you freakishly unable to control your ejaculations.
This is because when watching porn and masturbating, you get you immediate pleasure when you want it, instead of delayed gratification and all the work that you have to do when you have normal, real sex.
Pornography never had a good objective from its very beginning. It objectifies people’s body parts – the ones that should stay private and saved for our life partners. It’s not real sex. So why would you invest your time in something that could ruin your objective from watching that in the first place?
Porn is no good. Instead of watching it, go out there and find yourself a partner that can move your sex life from a television screen to reality.
