Porn is bad. But we often don’t realize how bad.

In a continuation from a previous post about how caustic porn is, I address another effect of porn: listless disatisfaction with anything else but the porn-masturbation combination. (Credit: Husbands and Dads blog)

Excerpt: “Are You a Porn Addict?

Of the two pleasure centers in the brain, one is high impact, thrilling pleasure stimulated by pornography, erotic fantasies, or new sexual encounters. The other is a steady, less intense pleasure realized by walking on a beach, making love with a long term partner, helping a child with homework, experiencing deep feelings (painful or pleasant) and sharing them in a significant relationship.

People who stimulate the high impact pleasure center too often rarely get enough satisfaction. Porn can generate this type of pleasure with little effort. Once a man is hooked, he will have an extremely difficult time transitioning to healthy, more stable pleasure.

he is addicted to high intensity pleasure and does not know how to experience pleasure from everyday, ordinary life situations; such as, spending quality time with his family or having intimate talks and sharing with his wife.

Wow. That’s pretty intense. It robs us of every other pleasure.

Qualification: It’s mutual

Women, you’re not exempt either. The last paragraph finishes on a note of mutuality

Frequently, neither partner knows how to enjoy these simple pleasures, therefore, it is not just the man who needs therapy. The marriage needs an overhaul where both have to address emotional issues.
