Part 2 of 3: Is pornography ruining your sex life?

His beautiful, loving girlfriend is wearing a skimpy little nightie. She slides into bed and starts kissing the back of his neck.

He doesn’t move. She coyly traces his waist with her hand.

“Sorry, I’m just really tired,” he says.

This is Part 2 of 3 on a series on the effects of Internet porn. Click here for Part 1 of 3: Is pornography preventing you from getting a girlfriend?

Frustrated, she flops back to her side of the bed while he keeps his eyes closed pretending to sleep.

Since the rise of Internet porn, a staggering number of men don’t want to have sex. Oh, they think they do.

But when the time comes, they are not able.

According to this NPR article, Getting Serious on Pornography, a study published in Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity, found that among the 68 percent of couples in which one person was addicted to Internet porn, one or both had lost interest in sex.

So many guys go from seeing their girlfriend/wife as a complex human being with whom they are sharing this profound experience called life with, to a body that just doesn’t do it for them any more.

The rise of Internet porn has also accompanied an upswing in divorce. The same NPR article also notes a 2002 meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, during which surveyed lawyers claimed that “an obsessive interest in Internet pornography” was a significant factor in 56 percent of their divorce cases the prior year.

More than half of divorces had porn play a significant factor.

What’s truly sad are the ruined relationships. So much of who we are as human beings is made out of our relationships. It could be said that great men are made out of great relationships. Porn is like dousing a relationship with Liquid Plumber, dissolving it entirely.

Just imagine how the rest of a man’s life plays out. When a man has become obsessed with sex but can no longer perform it or enjoy it properly.
