Implications of Escalating Erectile Dysfunction in Youthful Men Resulting from Internet Pornography Use

Vikki Prior

Research indicates that the escalation of erectile dysfunction in youthful men can be attributed to excessive Internet pornography use. Usage through adolescence and early adulthood, when the brain is at its peak of neuroplasticity and Dopamine levels are at their highest, creates an environment of increased vulnerability to addiction. Excessive use rewires the brain and interferes with the circuits involved in natural satiation mechanisms, resulting in numbed pleasure responses. Some researchers claim that the Internet’s unending novelty gives pornography the potential to become more addictive than drugs, food and gambling.

 

Recorded in October 2012 at the 13th ASSERT National Conference on: 
Sexuality: Beyond Difficulties, Definitions and Diversity, Melbourne, Australia.
