How porn addiction negatively affects your sex life and relationship

How porn impacts your sex life

Due to my hypnotherapy work with porn addiction, I have seen first hand how porn is having a detrimental effect on men’s lives. Because their work begins to suffer, sex life becomes boring as they need more extreme ways to get turned on, relationships and intimacy are at a low and it can also take longer to ejaculate with their sexual partner.

The differences between watching porn and having physical sex on your mind, body and heart are worlds apart. Porn addiction causes disconnection where as real physical sex causes a deeper connection and intimacy between two people

Watching Porn

  • Watching it alone and causes disconnection from world
  • Causes separation and can also lead to voyeurism
  • Spend hours searching and watching
  • The constant novelty leads to more searching
  • Searching for more shock and surprise
  • Disconnect from self
  • Impacts relationships

Having real sex

  • Creates deeper emotional & physical emotional connection.
  • It is relational because it brings a couple together.
  • Physical – touching and being touched
  • The smell and pheromones of sex is a physical way to deepen the experience
  • Deep interaction with a person
  • More connected to body
  • Binds relationships

Porn Addiction Research

According to research just watching 5 hours of porn changes the brain and also influences sexual beliefs and attitudes towards women. As porn becomes the norm many men do not even realise this impact and as a result, many areas of their life suffer.

Is there any place for porn in a relationship?

Absolutely!  Ethical porn (with boundaries) can be a fun way to introduce new games into a couple’s sex life and can also bring a new dimension. It’s about the intention and the connection between the couple and how porn can support them with intimacy, passionate and fun journey together. As opposed to someone who is addicted to porn and becomes isolated and alone.

If you are constantly watch porn alone it begins to build a large gap between yourself and those around them. Because it takes your energy, focus and sexual desire and manifests it in a way which isn’t real, connected or from a place of intimacy
