Problematic Pornography Use Linked to Erectile Dysfunction
2020 World Meeting on Sexual Medicine: Preliminary Program Topics Announced
Men who feel their pornography use is "problematic" could be more likely to have erection difficulties, according to a recent study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
However, no association was found between "mere" pornography use and erectile dysfunction (ED).
The findings are based on data from almost 900 sexually active, pornography-using men across three research groups. The men completed the International Index of Erectile Dysfunction and answered questions on pornography use, moral incongruence, and religiousness.
The authors noted that the association between problematic pornography use and ED was likely not causal.
