Understanding Your Twin Flame Relationship & Tools to Manage the Experience
5 ways watching porn makes you dislike sex

As anyone who has ever dealt with a pornography addiction will know, people who are addicted to porn would much rather watch porn than have sex.

Why does this happen? Why does watching porn make you dislike and avoid sex?

1. Watching porn triggers a chemical release

Many of us has been exposed to the idea that certain activities trigger chemical releases in our brains that feel like rewards or highs; porn does this on two levels.

First the repeated watching of porn triggers a response similar to a drug addict’s high, and secondly, sitting in front of your device for hours on end does the same thing – it’s why people are so glued to their devices.

So the first thing watching porn does is create a sexual stimulation response that you cannot replicate in normal sex, and you feel dissatisfied without that feel-good chemical release in the mix.

2. You choose the timing

When you engage in activities like watching porn and masturbating alone, it’s always initiated when you want it, when you’re highly turned on.

In the real world, in a relationship with somebody else, sex requires compromise: sometimes you’re in the mood, and sometimes you’re not.

3. It’s less effort

You don’t actually have to do all the huffing and puffing when you watch porn – but you still get to feel like you had porn star sex.

Also, the sexual engagement when you’re watching porn on your own lasts exactly as long as you want it to – you start when you feel horny and you stop when you don’t. No compromise is required.

4. Visual processing

When you watch a lot of porn, all the stimulation happens on the level of visual processing, and the only touch stimulation you experience is from your own hands.

Over time what this does is desensitize you to associating touch with sex, so you never feel the feelings that naturally lead to sex. As a result those feelings can’t turn you on when you’re near your partner.

You’re also unlikely to enjoy being stimulated by touch.

5. It’s private

When your sexual activities are alone with porn, sex becomes a habit of being a private act – it’s almost like you’re in a secret relationship with yourself.

By simply having sex with someone else, it can also feel like you’re cheating as well.
