colossal insights addiction porn pornography how to quit

It may not be a surprise to some yet research has found that pornography, especially when consumed from childhood, is having a heavily negative effect on sexual intimacy, sexual relationships and addiction to pornography. 

A 2016 study showed that 45% of men use pornography weekly, and up to 80% yearly.

5 Great Reasons to Quit Porn

On average, in the U.S. boys tend to begin watching pornography around the age of 11, and research suggests that it is when these boys grow into men they have more dysfunctional notions of sexual intimacy, higher divorce/breakup rates and higher rates of addiction than their counterparts who didn’t watch porn young.

The research also found that for men the act of engaging in masturbation while watching pornography is largely a solo act, whereas for women it is mostly done with a partner.

Because of this, pornography is becoming a wedge in many relationships for men because of a more surreptitious relationship to adult material.

Despite pornography remaining ‘free’ online, it is still a multi-billion dollar industry with huge influence across the world.

Although porn remains extremely powerful, the more harmful effects of pornography have begun to be explored, with men setting up ‘nofap‘ forums outlining the harmful effects of porn on their lives and extolling the virtues of quitting.
