Excessive consumption of pornography may cause impotence, scientists from Italy have announced, after a trial involving 28,000 men.
The Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine found that many of the men were hooked on porn at an early age. This led to so-called “sexual anorexia” – a lack of interest in genuine sexual relations – by the time the men had reached their mid-twenties.
Too much porn caused a gradual loss of libido, and the notion that sex is totally divorced from real life relations, the experts said.
Carlo Foresta, head of the Society, said: "It starts with lower reactions to porn sites, then there is a general drop in libido and in the end it becomes impossible to get an erection.”
However, it was not all bad news. “With proper assistance recovery is possible within a few months,” according to Foresta.
Impotence, or erectile dysfunction, has numerous causes, some of which are physical. High blood pressure or atherosclerosis (clogging of the arteries) can both result in a loss of erectile function.
Impotence also has psychological causes. Depression and anxiety are two mental health problems that have been linked to impotence.
Modern medical technologies mean impotence is not inevitable. Erectile dysfunction drugs Viagra, Cialis and Levitra can all effectively restore a healthy erectile dysfunction. These drugs are tried and tested, and have been used by millions of men worldwide. Speak to your doctor for more information about impotence treatments.Add Comment
