Watching sex films can sometimes be helpful: “It can help people who are anxious about their sexuality get past their apprehensions.

Again, if watched together under mutually agreeable conditions, it can improve a couple’s intimacy,” says Barbara D. Bartlik, MD, psychiatrist and sex therapist with Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City.

However, per a new research presented July 16, 2020, at the European Association of Urology (EAU) Virtual Congress, a high level of pornography watching can lead to trouble: It is strongly linked to increased cases of erectile dysfunction (ED), when males have trouble getting and maintaining an erection.

The More Porn Watched, the Higher the Percentage of errectile dysfunction.

The study was a result of a survey of 3,267 men who answered 118 questions about sexual habits, such as masturbation, how often they watch porn, and sexual activity with partners.

The research team discovered that on average porn watching for all participants was about 69 minutes per week.

When they compared that amount of pornography watched with experiences of ED, the team discovered that of those below age 35 who watched 300 minutes per week, 30 percent had ED compared with 10 percent in those who watched less than 30 minutes.

In the 35 to 45 age group that watched 300 minutes per week, 40 percent had ED.

However, in general only 5 percent of participants were watching 300 minutes or more.

Shocking Results About Younger Men and ED
“We saw a negative trend line between the time they were watching and the erectile function with partnered sex.

65 percent found sex with a partner more exciting [than] watching pornography.

The correlation was the strongest in the younger age group, below 35.

Indeed, in the group below 35 we saw more ED then we expected, about 23 percent,” Gunter De Win, MD, PhD, lead author, from the department of urology at the University of Antwerp and Antwerp University Hospital-UZA in Belgium, wrote in an email message.
