Teenagers Are Suffering From Erectile Dysfunction And It’s All Because Of Porn

If you’ve ever read Children of Men, you’ll probably think that an apocalyptic future filled with infertility is pretty unrealistic. But it’s a very real possibility according to sex therapist Angela Gregory. The problem? Men just can’t get it up because pornography is setting unrealistic standards.

She says that porn is destroying young men’s sexual performance and causing teenage boys to suffer the erectile problems which used to only be seen in middle-aged men.

“What I’ve seen over the last 16 years, particularly the last five years, is an increase in the amount of younger men being referred,” she told the BBC.

“Our experience is that historically men that were referred to our clinic with problems with erectile dysfunction were older men whose issues were related to diabetes, MS, cardiovascular disease.”

“These younger men do not have organic disease, they’ve already been tested by their doctors and everything is fine.”

Gregory says that young men face performance anxiety after comparing themselves with male porn stars and that extreme acts in pornography leave them bored by the standard sex on offer with real-life partners.
Gregory points out that this problem is only made worse by the fact that porn is more readily available than it has ever been.

The BBC spoke to 15-year-old Nick, not his real name, who after spending two hours a day watching porn, suffered from erectile dysfunction.

“What I was watching, it definitely got more extreme over a short period of time in my case.
“There was nothing that would give me a kick. Normal stuff didn’t do anything anymore, so I had to get more and more extreme material.

“I found that when I was lying next to a girl a lot that I just wouldn’t be horny at all, despite being really attracted to the girl and wanting to have sex with her, because my sexuality was completely wired towards porn.”

After consulting a doctor, Nick had to go 100 days without porn to get things back to normal.

“My libido came back with a vengeance and I met this girl and it was great.
“For the first time in ages I was able to flirt and within quite a short time I was able to have normal sex.
“I was feeling so balanced and happy.”

Gregory advises any young men who suffer from a similar problem to immediately consult their doctors.
