If you’re one of those guys out there who enjoys watching porn a little too frequently, you might want to ease up a bit or possibly face a life of sexual dysfunction.

According to PR Newswire, a recent study showed that “in evaluating men with sexual dysfunction ages 20-40, there appears to be a correlation between pornography use and sexual dysfunction in those who report a preference for masturbation to pornography (3.4 percent) rather than sexual intercourse, with or without pornography (96.6 percent).” While it appears only a small percentage rely on the X-rated material, science shows there’s a reason for their woes with a real companion, usually one that can be more easily remedied.

The study also evaluated women in the same age category, but were unable to show a correlation between porn and sexual dysfunction.

According to Dr. Joseph Alukal:

“Visual stimulation will often increase sexual arousal in both men and women, but when the majority of their time is spent viewing and masturbating to pornography, it is likely they will become less interested in real-world sexual encounters,” said Dr. Alukal.

“These studies suggest the issue may be trivial in women, but not so for men, and could lead to sexual dysfunction. Sex is half in your body and half in your head and it may not be a physical component driving the behavior, but a psychological one. For this reason, it’s important for physicians to understand the underlying issues leading to the sexual dysfunction prior to suggesting treatment options.”

So basically, if you want your stuff to work, maybe stay away from stuff that’s not safe for work.
