Or, from a feminist perspective, porn sometimes appears as the vile exploitation of women as intimate, one-dimensional objects without humanity apart from form. Yet as Naomi Wolf highlights in her article, The Porn Myth, in actuality the outcome of too much exposure to pornography has already established the effect, not of turning men into sexually ravenous beasts, however the complete opposite; intimate and mental anorexics who can no longer connect authentically to a genuine life girl or get aroused by one. Since it turns out, abnormal looking at of pornography in this digital age turns men off, not on.
As much studies now show, repetitive and compulsive browsing of internet porn by men (and a growing number of women) induces the opposite impact than one might expect, and as being a person who is dependent on a substance increases progressively more desensitized to the drug whilst carrying on to desire it more and more, a person who is dependent on pornography detects he/she eventually ends up on just about the same, well trodden fitness treadmill.

But more and more studies clearly link issues related to performance, including erectile dysfunction in men in their late teenagers and early twenties, (something that was almost unheard of 10 - 15 years back) back to extensive taking a look at of internet porn. It is only when they can no longer get an erection, or ejaculate even with porn that some men learn to make the connection between their abnormal looking at of porn and other issues in their life. Often this is actually the only thing that eventually get's their attention. (Their associates, if indeed they have partners, may have known for quite a while that something was taking place, or somewhat... not happening!)

It can't be much fun to be in a romance with a porn addict. However, it’s likely that that if you leave a marriage with one porn addict, you are probably to run into another as addicted, or on his way to being so, since in America at least, love-making habit (which porn craving is a kind of) has reached epidemic status, according to a 2011 Information Week article.
So, how will you overcome a porn dependency and reverse its results on the brain? Well the solution is easy, if not easy and this is merely to stop it.
