The Elephant will be addressed

Pornography in this generation is like man's Kryptonite. The accessibility and availability of pornographic content has never been this great in the world's history. Pornography effects

men's physiology and their cognitive capacity. There are many biological adverse effects that come from the practice of masturbation and pornography. Men become physically weaker and have less energy because of pornography. Porn causes men to lack social skills and the decreases the deisire to be soical. Men are more prone to want to live in isolation so that they don't feel ashamed when being around people because of what they're doing in dark.

 

Pornography messes with a man's ability to reason and to think. It also robs men of their ability to have fortitude when it comes to moral standards. Pornography is part of the reason why a lot of men are not  able to say what is right and what is wrong. It is partly to blame for why we don't see men pursuing relationships to start families because pornography messes with a man's drive and confidence.  

 

TALLAHASSEE, Florida, February 21, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Lawmakers in the Florida House of Representatives declared pornography a public health risk on Tuesday.

The resolution, approved by legislators, “recognizes the public health risk created by pornography and acknowledges the need for education, prevention, research, and policy change to protect citizens of this state.”

 

Republican Rep. Ross Spano, one of the sponsors, had addressed Florida's House Health and Human Services Committee in January about the dangers of porn, saying there is a link between porn use, mental illness and dangerous sexual behavior.

“Research has found a correlation between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, difficulty forming and maintaining intimate relationships, unhealthy brain development and cognitive function, and deviant, problematic or dangerous sexual behavior," said Spano, who announced last year he would run for state Attorney General.

The full resolution cites addiction, greater risk of low self-esteem and eating disorders among the dangers while noting that porn objectifies women and fuels sex trafficking.

The media criticized the move to recognize porn as a public health risk after last week’s devastating school shooting in Florida and the resulting Second Amendment debate. But the Florida House is not alone in recognizing pornography as a public health crisis.

Numerous studies have found porn to be destructive to marriages, families, mental health, brain function, and a healthy sex life, along with promoting sexual violence.

The following is an excerpt from an article that breakdown why pornography is so detrimental to men.
 
 
"4) Social Isolation:

Pornography and masturbation demand isolation. Anything which you do in secrecy usually leads to shame. One of the first effects of frequent porn use on men -especially young men, is social awkwardness in public, which ironically , leads to more shame.
Isolation and shame make it very difficult for you as a man to share true intimacy with others, whether its with other men as your brothers and friends, or women as partners and lovers.

Solution: Many men are already afflicted by shame, which is induced mainly by our society and religion. If you find that your pornography use has dulled your desire to be social, I know how difficult it can be to jump start your social life. Thankfully, the internet can help. Social sites like Meetup.com, and dating sites are a great way for the former “porn-hermit” to begin meeting people again. The long term goal would be transitioning to building healthy relationships and bonds with other men.

5)    Goal Setting and Rewards:

In my practice, I have never met a man who was hooked on porn that was good at goal setting. As I stated earlier, most men who abuse pornography usually struggle in their finances, relationships and careers. Its no coincidence.

…  ...

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter ( a chemical released by nerve cells to transmit signals to other nerve cells.) Its a key player in the part of our brain responsible for reward motivated behavior.

Sex, eating tasty food, getting approval ( “likes” on social media)  all trigger the release of dopamine.

The more often you watch porn and masturbate, the more often your brain is flooded with dopamine. You slowly become desensitized to its effects and need more stimulation to “feel the rush” or “get a fix”.

Solution: The simplest solution to this is to become a master of the “to-do” list and rewarding yourself.. Every night, before bed, write out a list of everything you need to accomplish the next day in order of importance. The next day, proceed to knock everything  out on the list.

Whatever is left over goes on the list for the next day. The key is rewarding yourself for accomplishing tasks on your lists. Of course the reward can’t be porn, but it should be something you enjoy doing leisurely- browsing self improvement sites could be one, or watching entertaining videos on Youtube. Use the activities that usually get in the way of your goals as rewards."

There is a crisis in our society.  There are a lot of men that are not able to stand for what is right. I hear women asking all the time, "Where are the strong men at?" They asked the question, "Why can't I find a good man who has that masculine drive?" I think pornography is partly to blame. Because it's an activity and that is usually done and secret many don't talk about it. I do think the word needs to get out about how detrimental pornography is to men and to society as a whole.
 
 
Please help to raise awareness of this devastating addiction that many men have so that we can began to see more men getting free from this silent killer.  And so that we can have more strong men building families.
