Easy access to porn is having a measurably bad effect on millennial men

Pornography has fundamentally changed the minds of millennials, who are becoming addicted to viral images over actual human contact. It’s even causing some of them to have a sexual dysfunction.

According to a study released on Friday by the Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association, men under the age of 40 increasingly prefer to look at porn rather than having actual sex.

The study revealed that the 9.3 percent of young men admitted to watching porn six times or more per week. Of those who view porn that often, a third say they prefer it over sex with a woman.

“Visual stimulation will often increase sexual arousal in both men and women, but when the majority of their time is spent viewing and masturbating to pornography, it is likely they will become less interested in real-world sexual encounters,” AUA spokesman Dr. Joseph Alukal said. “These studies suggest the issue may be trivial in women, but not so for men, and could lead to sexual dysfunction. Sex is half in your body and half in your head and it may not be a physical component driving the behavior, but a psychological one.”

This isn’t the first study to reveal that too much porn is having a crippling effect on the millennial libido.

A 2014 US armed forces health survey showed that rates of erectile dysfunction have more than doubled in the last decade, including among young men.

The survey concluded that it was primarily related to rising intake of pornographic videos which affected their desire for sex.

Porn dependency and addiction are only growing with each generation. In January 2016, the Barna Group found that 25 percent of older millennials, 38 percent of younger millennials, and 26 percent of Gen-Z went looking for porn several times a week.

This is compared to just nine percent of Baby Boomers and 23 percent of Gen-Xers.

Culturally, more and more young men have decided to drop out of society and end any chance of developing relationships, marriages, and children. There are several organizations dedicated to solving the crisis of sex addiction including the Center for Healthy Sex and the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health.
