The effects of pornography are more harmful than any other addiction in the world. Porn is the ultimate pacifier of men and prevents them from ever reaching their full potential in life. If pornography was removed from our world there is no telling how many more accomplishments men would be making in the world today. We will take an unbiased look at how pornography has shaped our society for the worse.
A Harmless Vice
On the outside adult content seems like the most harmless of vices. It can be viewed in the privacy of your own home and no one ever has to know. The accessibility makes it extremely potent as you never need to “hunt” for it as there are millions of free sites to satisfy your every desire. The act is not what destroys men but the after effects are what take hold and really ruin your life.
I firmly believe that men can never have happiness in this life and live up to their potential if pornography is part of it. We can hate on the evil of the industry all we want but it isn’t until you see how it harms you directly that you are encouraged to stop what you are doing. Pornography is the hardest of vices to quit as the images and movies are permanently lodged in your mind. Unlike drugs which are beatable with treatment and detox, pornography’s damage can last a lifetime. The breaking point is when you are determined to overcome porn and not allowing yourself to be a slave.
The Real Damage
So let’s start from the real beginning which is right after you are done with a quick session of pornography. This is when the damage starts to manifest itself. Immediately your body goes into a relaxed state like after you have had sex. You release your endorphins and your brain can’t tell the difference between pornography and real sex. The effects are like a fat and happy pig. You lose motivation to accomplish big things in life. Men are driven by women and when you have this false reality you lose that drive. In Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, he mentions sex transmutation as the vital ingredient to success. If you use pornography you lose your drive and large amounts of testosterone. You, in essence, live in an altered state of life and believe that pornography is a true source of pleasure. This is like sedating an animal and you are the animal. You become docile and limp.
The other effects include no skill with women. When you use pornography you are looking at beautiful women. You begin to associate this beauty with a fantasy that you see in videos. Soon enough you begin to perceive gorgeous women as something that is unobtainable and you subconsciously put them on a pedestal. Also, you have no desire to approach and connect with women because millions are readily available in the cyber world. In my experiences with men who are horrible with women they all use pornography and masturbate profusely. If you want to be good with women you HAVE to stop looking at pornography.
The effect of pornography on men is that it makes us content and docile. If you want happiness in this life than take pornography out of it or you will condemn yourself to an altered reality that is extremely detrimental to your psychological health. Stopping is hard but if you are determined enough it can be overcome by goal setting and execution.
