Neuroscientists Challenge Myths About Men and Porn

Porn ≠ penis problems

still from "Don Jon"still from "Don Jon"It's a popular cultural trope these days that watching porn is making men, especially young men, sexually dysfunctional. "Porn is ruining the sex lives of an entire generation," trumpeted Business Insider a few years ago, citing a Psychology Today report relying on bit of neuro-nonsense to get the point across: 

Today's users can force [their] release by watching porn in multiple windows, searching endlessly, fast-forwarding to the bits they find hottest, switching to live sex chat, viewing constant novelty, firing up their mirror neurons with video action and cam-2-cam, or escalating to extreme genres and anxiety-producing material. It's all free, easy to access, available within seconds, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

This basic narrative, with its mixed techno/sex panic and vaguely scientific undertones, can be seen everywhere from New York magazine to consumer health sites, Esquire to The American Conservative to The Daily Mail, Christian websites to Thought Catalog. Many use a common tack: starting with a person or group of people who found porn to be problematic (a self-described porn or sex addict, members of the "No Fap" Reddit community), then extrapolating these experiences to make a more general warning about porn's detrimental effects. The genre subtly shames both women and men—the former for not being enough like porn stars to keep their men interested, the latter for letting their libido rule them—and often veers into discussions of whether more government intervention is warranted.

But the narrative at the core of this genre is a crock, according to a new study published in the journal Sexual Medicine. Researchers from UCLA and Montreal's Concordia University collected data from 280 (mostly young) men on the average number of hours per week they spent watching pornography (answers ranged from zero to 25); their sex drives more generally; whether they were in a monogamous relationship (123 were); and their erectile functioning. Participants also watched a very "vanilla" porn film in the lab and reported their arousal level. 

The researchers found no relationship between pornography habits and experiencing erectile dysfunction among sexually active participants. "Many clinicians claim that watching erotica makes men unable to respond sexually to 'normal' sexual situations with a partner," said study co-author Nicole Prause, an associate research scientist at UCLA's Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. "That was not the case in our sample."

"These data suggest that inventing a new problem—porn causing erectile problems—for which there is no tested treatment, may be a disservice to patients," she continued. 

Erection trouble in the study population was a product of issues such as "performance anxiety, poor cardiovascular health, or side-effects from substance abuse," said Jim Pfaus, a professor in Concordia's psychology and behavioral neurobiology department and the other study lead. 

The researchers also found that men who watched more porn at  home reported higher levels of arousal when they watched porn at the lab. "While one could object that this was expected since they like sex films," Prause said, "the result is important because clinicians often claim that men get desensitized by watching these films. Rather, "they are responding more strongly to very vanilla erotica than the guys for whom the films are more novel." 

Participants who watched the most porn also reported feeling higher desire for sex with a partner. 

"The positive relationships between [porn] viewing and many indices of sexual responsiveness suggest that [it] might even improve erectile functioning," the researchers concluded, noting that watching porn may prime men "to respond to different sexual stimuli types" in a way that "could facilitate their sexual responses to females who may vary tremendously in their sexual behavior preferences." Regardless, the "oft-repeated link between ED" and porn is mostly "perpetuated by data-poor literature."

    When I was a kid, I had to sneak actual physical porno mags into the house and hide them under my mattress. Under the mattress. Like a chump. What kind of barbaric hellscape did we live in two decades ago? How did we survive? Will our children believe us when we tell them about our unbelievable suffering?

  • hamilton||

    Yes - can you believe this shit? We circulated rumors about a "camp" the "big kids" had out in the woods that had porno mags. A crack expedition led to the discovery of some ripped up fragments of pages, upon one of which a boob was clearly visible.

    This counted as a complete success at age 12, at least three steps up from the Sears Wish Book catalog.

  • ||

    A Hustler was a treasure, worth at least its weight in gold.

  • ||

    I can still recall the gynecological details of my first hustler centerfold viewing.

  • SugarFree||

    I remember the first article I stopped to read: "The Wife-Tasting Contest."

  • Plàya Manhattan.||

    Hustler? You had it good. I had to make do with Playboys from the '80s.

  • ||

    That was mostly what I used. I still remember the names of the centerfolds in the first Playboy I filched from my dad's closet.

  • Plàya Manhattan.||

    Me too. I think I told you guys about that time in college that I had work at the Playboy Mansion.

    A haggard, chain smoking woman came up with her kid and introduced herself. She and her kid lived there because they had no where else to go.

    The name sounded really familiar, and then I finally realized that I'd jerked it to this woman dozens of times as a teenager.

    Dream: shattered.

  • Plàya Manhattan.||

    That bastard kid was the icing on the cake. He probably liked where he lived, thought.

    If only it had been Anna Faris and then she could go live in a sorority house where all the girls are actually pretty fucking hot but dress badly and seem mousy until they clean themselves up. With lots and lots of bikini car washes.

  • Zeb||

    One of the saddest days of my young life was when I discovered that my dad had destroyed the Penthouse which featured Hyapatia Lee, Vanessa Williams and Traci Lord (at age 16, which I assume is why he got rid of it). Goddamn it, they should have just changed the age of consent for doing porn so the world didn't have to be robbed of Traci Lord.

  • Zeb||

    And I still think Lee is one of the most genuinely beautiful and attractive porn stars ever.

  • ||

    This is the first picture I ever whacked off to. Thirty years later and I still invite him into my imagination every once in a while. Cause, dayum.

    My kid sister was totally into Duran Duran growing up. I would torment her by calling him Slime on the Barn until she nearly cried.

    Ha, at least my dad eschewed shitty Playboys (that was my uncle's thing) for Penthouse and then Hustler, so I was working with a better set of material. He also stored all his homegrown weed in the same place (I had to take the rods out of hinges to get in there, but I did), but I was too young to know what that was. I only cared about the porn.

  • BigT||

    Hustler?

    We had some National Geographics and my uncle's medical journals. The latter featured mis-shapen and diseased people, of course.

    [hmmm.... maybe that explains it ...]

  • DesigNate||

    This is exactly what Bo is talking about you bunch of juveniles!!!!

    Mostly Playboy (funnily enough Anna Nicole Smith was the centerfold of the first one I borrowed from my dad). I always enjoyed Penthouse more though.

  • GroundTruth||

    I can still smell the dead pine needles used to hide to piece of plywood covering the hole in the woods with the local stash.

  • Hillary's Clitdong||

    Uncle Warty, how did you get by without having instant access to interracial midget porn videos?

  • ||

    Can you believe I jacked it to nothing but depictions of the nude female form???

    I still get a Pavlovian halfie when I smell the cheap cologne smell of old Playboys. Anyone else?

  • Hillary's Clitdong||

    Can you believe I jacked it to nothing but depictions of the nude female form???

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. That's just one small step above MAXIM.

  • ||

    Playboy was so milquetoast that it was basically useless. Even Penthouse was pretty tame. A Hustler was better, then there were the specialty mags. I stole (yes, fuck you, it was the only way for me to get them, had I been able to buy them I would have) many a mag when an early teen.

  • hamilton||

    I knew nothing about the specialty mags until I started working in a convenience store as a teen and had access to the, um, special shelf behind the counter. Those were awesome years.

  • Plàya Manhattan.||

    See? The pearl clutchers are right!!! Playboy was gateway porn!! And now you can't even get off without some amputee on dog action.

    I never stooped to the craven-like extreme of robbery. I paid an unfortunate boy half a chocolate bar and a choice page or two out of any mag he could get for me. Couldn't tarnish my standing as an 11 year-old businessman in the newspaper business.

  • ||

    I stole (yes, fuck you, it was the only way for me to get them, had I been able to buy them I would have) many a mag when an early teen.

    My best friend growing up knew where, in the office of his Dad's machine shop, where the porn and liquor were stored.

    One of the first few sleepovers we had where looking at porn seemed reasonable, I tried sneaking out there.

    His Dad was a Vietnam Vet and generally didn't sleep well and didn't take kindly to people sneaking around his machine shop.

    Not only did that scare any sort of Pavlovian responses to porn right out of me, it taught me a lot about not getting caught doing shit and/or making sure it's worth it.

  • Zeb||

    I liked Penthouse. It showed all the bits and pieces, unlike Playboy where the best you could get was a little cleft of Venus, without being as gynecological as Hustler. Though Hustler was a bit more informative.

    Did you hoard your treasures like a bunch of sticky-handed little Smaugs, or did you sell some of them for ditchweed and Coors Light?

  • ||

    Trade, I mean.

  • ||

    My friends and I had a circuit for trading porn. It was actually very generous, people just swapped shit back and forth (just like I do to your mom), that was all that was required. Jesus things were fucking stupid before the simplicity of the internet.

  • freedomlover||

    But, that makes it all the more charming.

  • Agile Cyborg||

    Shit. At some point before web sex there was always a pack of young boys getting their sex fix rained on and utterly ruined. And the after-scramble was decidedly anxious and furtive and entailed all sorts of planning and re-routing.

  • Scruffy Nerfherder||

    My first Penthouse was the Madonna issue. Found it on a bike ride, abandoned in the street like Madonna's virginity.

  • AmbroseKidwell||

    I had that one too. I feel very sorry that Penthouse is now closing the magazine. But what can they do. There are now millions of sites that offer free pornography like pornhub and https://fapshows.com that are geting in front of them in the online business.

  • DesigNate||

    That reminds me of getting my little brother (I think he was 10 at the time) to dumpster dive in the recycled paper bin at the elementary school down the street. The shear volume of magazines we found, and raunchy british stuff too. Some dads in the area made me fucking rich that summer!

  • ||

    At a certain age each of my sons disappeared into their bedrooms with their iPads for a month or so. I had to explain to my wife that it was critical for her to make sure she knocked before entering their room. Ideally she would wear a bell like you do when you hike in bear country.

    She was absolutely appalled by the idea that her babies were now up in their rooms jerking it 24/7. I told her to relax and they would get over it.

    I then told her that I was so jealous of the little bastards because I didn't have a magical porn viewing tablet when I was a kid. I was like a lot of you guys and did whatever I could to find a few cast off pics from magazines older kids had bought. I still don't think she believes me.

  • B.P.||

    They didn't get over it, did they....

  • From the Tundra||

    No one ever does.

    Right on. You only learn how to manage it.

  • From the Tundra||

  • JW||

    Yeah, the wife-unit freaked out when The Boy got busted for porn on his PC and unbelievably, on her PC. Dumb ass.

    She wants to check his phone all the time and I've told her that I would be disappointed if he wasn't jacking it to his phone.

    She doesn't understand.

  • ||

    Hiding all them magazines under the mattress made it hard to sleep around the lump.

  • ||

    Participants who watched the most porn also reported feeling higher desire for sex with a partner.

    Anyone who doubts this has never watched porn and/or never had a sex partner. Every normal person has had plenty of instances when they've watched porn and decided that yes, throwing it to the old lady/old man would be nice, thank you very much.

    Fucking Kellogg was a nutcase.

    a method of treatment [to prevent masturbation] ... and we have employed it with entire satisfaction. It consists in the application of one or more silver sutures in such a way as to prevent erection. The prepuce, or foreskin, is drawn forward over the glans, and the needle to which the wire is attached is passed through from one side to the other. After drawing the wire through, the ends are twisted together, and cut off close. It is now impossible for an erection to occur, and the slight irritation thus produced acts as a most powerful means of overcoming the disposition to resort to the practice

    and

    In females, the author has found the application of pure carbolic acid (phenol) to the clitoris an excellent means of allaying the abnormal excitement.

    Last year during the great Atlanta Ice Storm I went out on my porch and saw a strange looking icicle. It was about 3" wide and tapered to about and inch and a half. It was round at the bottom instead of sharp and the best way I could describe the middle would be "ribbed". So naturally I broke it off and chased my wife around the house with it.

    Nofap is a profoundly sad group of losers. I encourage everyone to visit and laugh at them. Poor morons.

    So it has been helpful for me to create a character in my mind that is the addiction to porn and masturbation- it allows me to know that the wanting doesn't belong to me, so I don't feel so compelled to respond to it.
    My addict is a gremlin, he's green and brown and slimy, with big ears and gross teeth, he has hot, smelly breath, and, as an addict he is shackled, his arms pulled up over his head with chains, and his feet unable to move. Cravings are him writhing in frustration.
    And when you give in to those cravings, you aren't jerking yourself off in your soft bed, you are on your knees jerking this guy off. He's sweating on you, drooling, his hot breath piercing your nostrils, and when you jizz, he is jizzing, right onto your face.
    Maybe you don't want to do it so much anymore?

    I'd go the exact opposite of these guys and say the best thing about internet pr0n is that it demonstrates to most people that no matter how kinky they are, they are not alone.

    In my opinion, it is a great thing to let people know that those dirty thoughts they are constantly thinking doesn't make them a deviant, but just a normal person who happens to get turned on by the same things that a shit ton of other people are into.

    In the pre-internet pr0n days, if you were into midget porn, you had to think that you were pretty much a single perv that would be shunned by everyone else. Now, there is a whole category on youporn for you to get your jollies.

    How these losers can't figure out that they aren't wrong for wanting to jerk it to lactation videos is beyond me.

  • Zeb||

    I have no idea what the problem is with the "no fap" people and I don't care so I won't find out.

    I agree that if you have a kink (and it isn't for raping 5 year olds or something) you should embrace it and not be ashamed of yourself. But I think that some people do really have a problem with addiction or obsession with porn. If it is actually disruptive to your life, then you probably should worry about it. If you jack off to weird porn 8 times a day, but still have normal relationships with people, then you are fine, I'd say.

  • Agile Cyborg||

    I have no negative feelings toward a dude that isn't interested in viewing naked women, but I'd probably consider his libido quite low or his morals quite on the dotted line- both fine by me, in fact. Just don't judge my alternative lifestyle and I'll happily not judge your monogamy or strict sexual tastes.

    ^ The funniest anti-porn webpage there is.

    Some samples:

    "So it’s not super surprising that companies selling these products have resorted to using almost-naked women in sexual positions to get men’s attention. And if you’ve been on your phone, computer, or watching TV lately, each company seems to be trying to top itself with every new magazine cover and commercial.

    Don’t get us wrong. We know that advertisers have been using sex to sell just about everything forever, and that typically doesn’t fall under the category of the porn and sexual exploitation that our Fight is all about.

    But everything starts somewhere right? It’s a proven fact that porn is an escalating addiction. And our generation is the first one where people can unexpectedly (and casually) see an almost-naked woman just by simply turning on the TV or scrolling on their phones."

    Almost. Naked.

  • Viscount Irish, Slayer of Huns||

    Laughing my ass off:

    "To give you an idea of how damaging these images are, a study by Princeton psychologists showed a group of men pictures of male and females, some barely clothed and some not. During the study, the psychologists monitored their medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), which is involved in recognizing human faces and distinguishing one person from another. For the most part, the mPFC was activated with each picture. However, when the men viewed the pictures of sexually dressed women, it was not activated. Basically, the automatic reaction in the men’s brains suggests that they didn’t perceive the women as fully human. Just as a body."

    By this logic, don't you not view a woman as 'fully human' literally every time you have sex? Man, some of those Mormon men with 12 kids sure have spent a lot of time viewing their wives as 'just a body!'

    "Every time I saw him, I pounced. He was confused at first, but went along with it like a child reluctant to turn away free ice cream. After the first few days, other than the occasional, ‘What’s gotten into you?’ he didn’t say much about the change. The nights he slept at home I did everything in my power, everything that internet porn had showed me, to rock his world. I was a machine. My anger and resolve fueled every motion. When I awoke to the glow of his phone in the middle of the night, the familiar sounds of someone texting a home wrecker in secret, I jumped into porn star mode again. I surprised him at lunch, porn star mode while pulled into the crappy car wash. When he remarked why the dishes hadn’t been done for a week, porn star mode right in front of the empty dishwasher. I performed more times in a month than I had in the entirety of our three year marriage. There were positions I should not have attempted given my lack of flexibility and tendency to get vertigo. I lost a lot of sleep in between my daytime job, my new job in the bedroom, and the baby. It was exhausting and completely unenjoyable for me, but I was winning."

    Did anyone else notice that the piece they copied and pasted from HuffPo didn't actually claim their marriage problems were because of porn?

    She lays out pretty clearly what she thought (apparently incorrectly) the problem was:

    What changed when the baby came? The numbers were dismal, and when I had provided sex, it wasn’t anything spectacular.

    She goes (supposedly) porn-style because she thinks she's a boring sex partner, not because her husband is looking at porn (which is only discussed in passing).

    I'm applying for a grant. I'll simply mic myself and a few of my buddies up. Then we will walk around the U of MN campus on a nice spring day.

    I'm sure the results will be as follows:

    Normal conversation between myself and buddies.
    [attractive gal in short shorts walks by]
    Buddies and I stop talking as our brains divert all brain cells to optical processing
    [attractive gal is gone]
    Normal conversation resumes.

    All I have to do is paper up the results with some bull shit about medial prefrontal cortex shit and I'm home free.

    Study has been done...sort of. Two fake news anchors. One a hot female, the other a hot male, groups of men watching both separately, groups of women watching both separately. The men could not remember the content delivered by the hot female news caster but could recall the content delivered by the male. Women had pretty good recall for both cases.

  • ||

    Basically, the automatic reaction in the men’s brains suggests that they didn’t perceive the women as fully human. Just as a body.

    Next up, a complex study to figure out if the women who post nearly naked selfies with their heads cropped out respond to being objectified on the internet and what that means for women everywhere.

    I will never understand why run-of-the-mill porn is hated by feminists and anti-porn types. There is practically nothing in run-of-the-mill porn that the average couple isn't already doing or getting off to. And if body image is an issue for these blockheads there is an entire subsection filled with chubbies and matures which completely unravels their 'perfect' body image fixation.

  • Viscount Irish, Slayer of Huns||

    One thing I've noticed is that both anti-sex feminists and anti-sex Christian conservatives assume completely without evidence that watching 'violent porn' will make you violent and then exaggerate the percentage of porn that is violent.

    Every time you read an anti-porn article, they seem to assume that 99% of men are watching rape-porn with a large amount of scat, punching, and abusive language.

    Personally, I like when the girl seems to be enjoying herself and imagine I'm in the majority in that regard. And anyway, there's no evidence that getting turned on by violent porn means you are violent, anymore than a woman who has rape fantasies actually wants to be raped.

  • Agile Cyborg||

    Violent sex is a very subjective terminology. An anti-porn feminist would consider consensual anal sex between a husband and a wife a violent act.

    Violence in porn has to be determined by sound and very worldly minds. Brains exhibiting simplistic sexual mores brought on by religious faith or certain feminist philosophies should be ignored as forms of sexual validation.

  • DesigNate||

    If Literotica and Reddit have taught me anything, it's that women vastly outnumber men in the consumption and production of rape-porn.

  • Illocust||

    Well duh, they have actual legitimate studies done. About fifty percent of women have rape fantasies. It is literally the most common sexual fantasy among women.

  • Harvard||

    And the very worst contain argyle socks.

  • sarcasmic||

    I think a lot of porn-hate is motivated by jealousy. They feel like it's mental adultery. Coveting another man's wife and all of that.

  • Agile Cyborg||

    Jealousy is a fucking insidious emotion.

  • freedomlover||

    Yes but, it is undeniably powerful. Sometimes, enough to kill for.

  • Anonymous Coward||

    Feminists hate porn because it gives men satisfaction. Anything that makes any man happy is per se bad because men are per se bad, hence their caterwauling about porn, PIV, "street harrassment" (speaking to a woman in public without her permission), and objectification (ironic considering women openly objectify men by the "666 Requirement": At least 6 feet tall, at least a 6 inch penis, and at least a 6 figure income). What's funny about the "body image" argument against porn is that most pornstars, absent their warpaint sex makeup, and pretty average and some not even that (Riley Reid, cute girl, terrible acne).

    The anti-porn so-cons want women to get off of Lex Steele's cock and back into the church and the kitchen, which is their natural habitat.

  • Hamster of Doom||

    "Feminists hate porn because it gives men satisfaction."

    Oh, I don't know about that. Doesn't sound terribly accurate. Are you sure you've explored this theory sufficiently?

    While a few feminists might feel exactly this*, I suspect the objection made most often by women is that their stimulation in porn is unimportant. This does appear to be valid, BUT women are biologically not as visual as men. The female equivalent appears to be print media - erotic stories. You should see the porn stories my wife downloads to her phone. She starts reading in bed, and I know it's going to be a good night, tater.

    And then there's Supernatural slash incest.*

    *No matter how illogical or nonsensical the idea, there's some damned idiot out there who will believe it wholeheartedly.

  • Illocust||

    Supernatural slash incest is the worst you got? You do notice the trends in possession non-con with the angel in the mix stories right? I mean seriously, that shows fanfiction is the definition of rule 64. If you can imagine someone has spent years of their life writing it out in loving detail for hordes of female fans.

    I have no idea where they got the idea that "live sex chat" and "cam-2-cam" are free. Unless you find a unicorn on Omegle, that shit is mega-expensive.

    Fun fact: Badon Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts was also an anti-masturbation advocate. He believed boys should take long hikes daily to suppress their sex drives, a practice he referred to as "rovering". He did not get married until he was 55 and usually slept apart from his wife. His main hobby was rovering with strapping, fit teenage boys.

    Could it be that the founder of the Boy Scouts was gay? Naaaaah....

  • Derpetologist||

    Baden-Powell was keen on amateur theatricals, from Charterhouse public school where among other roles he played female operatic roles. In the army he made a speciality of female roles and would often make his own dresses. His stage specialty was what he called his skirt dance.

    Yep, definitely not gay.

    Once in a while I will be looking at some random comment thread on some news story and see some anti-masturbation commenters. It is like seeing a buffalo in the wild or something. Yeah, there used to be lots of them but I thought they hunted them to extinction. It will be usually be in a place you would not expect it, like some article on infidelity and the comment will go something like "most men who cheat (or do whatever the subject of the article is) are chronic masturbaters unable to form genuine human relationships" or something to that effect.

  • John||

    The smoking porn analogy is hysterical. I mean the fact that porn can be sent to you privately and electronically is not any kind of significant difference between the two products.

  • soflarider||

    "I spend many hours looking at derp."

    Yes, Yes, and No. If anything, online derp helps me enjoy real life derp more!

    My husband and I joke about how much more perverted my taste in porn is than his.

It's gotten to the point where I'm disappointed if there are no chicks-with-dicks, or two dicks, as the case may be.

    Having said that, if I actually want to rub one out pretty quick, I turn to massage porn, which is pretty vanilla in the scheme of things.

So lots of design options still in play.

  • John||

    I may be the one straight guy in the world who doesn't like hardcore porn. It is not that I am prude. I like naked women enough. It is just the lesbian stuff is okay but gets old and the dicks ruin the regular stuff. So much of porn is a close up of some woman sucking some guy's cock. There is so much of that it makes me wonder exactly which party the guys watching those are living vicariously through, the guy or the girl? It just doesn't do anything for me.

  • Harvard||

    Broaden you tastes. Watch strictly amateur smut, preferably hidden cam, and delight at the squeaky beds, barking dogs, the occasional vaginal fart.

  • freedomlover||

    That only supports the thesis that porn is male dominated. Produced by males for males. By and large, women aren't interested.

    Well, I've known a few who are.

    Truthfully, in my own life, when my wife and I first got together, I had a couple of porn magazines and I distinctly remember us both looking at them and talking about the pictures which led to discovering things about each other.

    Then, they were tossed aside and never thought of again.

    A few years later, when we first got Showtime on satellite, there were these soft core adult movies, most of them pretty corny, that came on. And, sometimes my wife and I watched them and more than once, it led to her jumping my bones. Which was fine with me.

    Then, a few more years down the road, she notices that those old magazines are sitting on the floor in my closet and blasts me for having them. We end up in this really surreal argument where she denies ever having looked at such things and telling me they are for perverts. I just stand there flabbergasted and wondering if I've entered a parallel universe or something.

    Now, if none of this makes any sense to you, you aren't married. Or, if you are, you haven't been for very long. A lifetime of marriage can be very "Alice in Wonderland" like, where up is down and down is up. It's just the nature of the beast.

    I've often wondered about that too. I think it is because it is such a common flavor in sweets that it is sort of the normal basic taste of things.

  • ||

    And vanilla ice cream is usually thought of as the sort of base, plain flavor.

    I'd always assumed it was this. Plain old vanilla being the opposite of dowsed in rum, flaming, and surrounded by bananas.

    As an analogy for porn, that description works quite well.

    And the conversation has moved full circle.

  • Joao||

    A few cautious objections to the study parameters:

    Per the study, Which is more novel?

    A man that does not view porn watching a vanilla porn film expected to report how aroused he became, or a man who watches porn viewing a vanilla porn film expected to report on how aroused he was by the film? I'm not sure one is more novel than the other.

    Vanilla porn may also have been arousing as it may actually have had a plot or some kind including sexual tension, etc, whereas hardcore is less so.

    Further, many above commenters testify that they have moved on from Playboy to hardcore, etc. The old stuff doesn't do it for them anymore except for nostalgia for the old once-novelty. Playboy was a gateway, they are saying. Sounds a bit like an addiction to me.

  • Agile Cyborg||

    Playboy is a gateway to Hustler and Hustler was a gateway, ultimately, on the time continuum to online porn and online porn no matter how hardcore can get boring... just like the normal fucking of actual human beings. Life just requires imagination often to make all sorts of activities yet more interesting. Addiction is a side issue for a few. Don't read more into this because you just want to.

  • taker||

    Sexuality is highly diversified and variant. I always tell people that I know homosexuality is in the genes simply because it's *not* in *my* particular genes.

    What I like is hourglass shaped women, with a few extra pounds, on the softer side. My son likes the lean and toned. So we're different.

    Some men are highly sexual and have no problem getting it up twice a day. As BIll Lear is to have said "I like my women built for speed, not comfort." Some women too. And for many of us, once a week or even a month will suffice. For some, vanilla, for others, perhaps different stimulation is required.

    So it's complicated. I suspect that for some men, porn is a poor choice and will affect their relationships, for others, it could affect their partner's relationships to them. So it depends. These things are platykurtic with many factors.

    So a conclusion that porn influences or not is highly individual, there is no problem to solve, and government interference is the last thing we need.

  • Eggs Benedict Cumberbund||

    I know what kurtosis is but I've never heard the term platykurtic. So I did learn something.

  • CN_Foundation||

    Yes, I mostly agree except the government must soon begin enforcing U.S. laws making transmission of p0rn0grAphy to the anonymous and organized crime. Preventing p0rn0grAphy from being broadcast by radio is common today is NOT interference in the least.

    Hey,

    All you commenters and "Reason" fluffer-writers who are old enough to remember being a teenager when the "web" 0f p0rn0grAphy did n0t exist or the twenty-three to thirty-nine readers over 31.

    We always knew "addictions" to p0rn0grAphy by the most sexual of humans was guaranteed and was enjoyed. P0rn0grAphy was a benefit because hyper-sexual people could then use fantasies and be satiated instead of filled with lust. We also always knew p0rn0grAphy made us better sexual performers with most any partner and showed many vanilla partners of the vanilla sexuals reading this the best sexual experience they will ever have. We knew there never was the slightest danger of p0rn0grAphy causing ED and know ED is too easy to compensate for to matter if ED occurs.

    We hyper-sexuals need to prepare for the end of anonymous viewing of p0rn0grAphy because this will soon end. The largest and most profitable of p0rn0grAphy websites will soon need to be redesigned because display of NAKED genitalia or developing female breasts to the anonymous public will be prosecuted as the crime this has always been. The first few challengers of this organized crime will die in prison. It will again become profitable to pander p0rn0grAphy very carefully. Taking off your clothes and performing p0rn0grAphy will again be profitable and a lure to get those clothes off of many of your otherwise vanilla partners.

    Playboy and Hustler and others "skin mags" will again be profitable.

My story is that I quit working at Walmart to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $40h to $86h Someone was good to me by sharing this link with me, so now i am hoping i could help someone else out there by sharing this link... Try it, you won't regret it!....

    We should accept the term “porn” nowadays because we are in 2015 and the modern world is evolving around sex. You can see it on tv, social networks, personal pictures, public ads. Nothing in this world is made without something sexy in it. I read an article on https://www.fapshows.com/blog/ that really dismantle 3 porn myths we all grown with. We need to see all things in a modern perspective and try to understand them.
