“For many, pornography is an accessory to masturbation. While porn can act as a stimulant and help people achieve orgasm, it can also lead to unhealthy addictions and cloud reality in the bedroom. While masturbation can help with erectile dysfunction and boost your confidence, unrealistic expectations set by porn can make someone feel like they can’t live up to the standard.

The average erect penis size is 5.1 inches, which is not what the porn industry would lead us to believe. So just like you shouldn’t compare yourself to pornstars, you shouldn’t compare your partner(s) either.

Signs of porn addiction include unsuccessful attempts to stop and when watching causes you to miss events in your daily life. When it comes to quitting, the most effective way is cutting it out completely until you no longer experience cravings. There are also several ways to get professional help, from in-person addiction support groups to confidential online therapy.

Whether or not you’re addicted, everyone can try to consume porn more ethically. With porn more readily available and widespread than ever, it can be difficult to tell when it is produced ethically. Things to keep in mind are whether or not the actors are being treated fairly and both enjoying the experience. This can be very difficult to recognize and there is plenty of debate around the subject, but paying for pornography is one of the best ways to guarantee that the performers were properly compensated for their work.”
