Are Men Hard-Wired to Watch Porn?

Have you wondered if men are hard-wired to watch porn? Well, if you have, you need to ask yourself a more specific question. The real question is “Is YOUR man hard-wired to watch porn?”

Most men are not hard-wired to watch porn. Unfortunately, more people than ever are consuming porn these days. Increased stress and easy accessibility are making porn the newest strategy to offset anxiety.

Watch this video for an easy explanation and keep reading below to learn what hard-wires a man to need to watch porn.

Yes, some men are hard-wired to watch porn because they have been using it as an escape from reality for many years. What happens is over time porn wires the person’s brain to need more of it to feel ok. In essence, porn reduces anxiety and pain for the person. The bad news is that porn consumption, like so many other things, is not good for the brain. Even though it provides relief for the consumer in the short run, it has long term damaging effects. Not only is erectile dysfunction related to porn use, but happiness also decreases, anger increases, relationships suffer, and productivity can decrease too. Porn is used to escape the pain that a man struggles with on the inside.

Here are the main factors that impact if a man’s brain is hard-wired for porn. There is science behind each of these ideas that shows that porn affects the brain like a drug.

Age of First Porn Exposure.

The earlier a man is exposed to porn the worse the impact it usually has on him. Many men were exposed as a young teenager and it made them feel better. It helped that young version of himself escape the pain of his family. Many men who use porn grew up in families where they were verbally or physically abused. This neglect made it so that they needed an escape.

Frequency of Porn Exposure.

How often a man has been watching porn can also impact how hard-wired the need for porn is in the brain. If a man has been watching porn twice a week for 20 years, that is an ingrained habit. It would be hard for that man to go for a very long time without watching porn. This is because his brain needs porn to offset anxiety feel calm. At first a few times a week helps the user feel better. After a while, more time with porn is needed for the same effect. Many men do not understand this effect is happening within their brains.

Most men think they cannot get addicted to porn. I am here to tell you it can happen to anyone. Doctors, lawyers, actors, and more. Former NFL player turned actor Terry Crews’ story is especially inspirational.  Even athletes, like Lamar Odom, can fall victim and high profile musicians can’t escape either. Have you heard of Kanye West? Read their stories. They will blow your mind.

Escalation of Types of Porn

After a while, the usual porn will not do it for the user. This is because the brain builds tolerance, just like alcohol. It needs more graphic material in addition to a greater quantity. So, in time men will find themselves watching porn that crosses the boundary of their moral code. Violent porn, porn with men, children, animals, etc. You should know that science shows if you are watching mainly one type of porn or a specific sex act. You are creating a neural pathway for that image. Every time you watch it, you burn it in. You will need that fantasy more than ever over time. It will own you.
