Chris Kraft, Ph.D. - Johns Hopkins sexologist dicusses porn-induced sexual dysfunctions

Printer-friendly version

A podcast with a fenmale sexologist interviewing a pretty well known male sexologist - Chris Kraft, Ph.D. Sexual dysfunctions seem to be his forte. The first part of the show is a lot like other shows on men and ED. The sexologists suggest that men today may be experiencing higher rates of ED because women are now more "powerful", or it's more stressful, or the economy. Suddenly, the show does a 180 degree turn, and he says a main cause of ED and other sexual issues is Internet porn. This start at 25:00 minutes.

Then he say's its happening in younger men. It's an "emerging" problem due to access to internet porn. The female sexologist who is interviewing him says that "we see 14 and 15 year olds are coming in and saying they can't get turned on by real girls". It is like 2 completely different interviews.

  • 25:00 - 27:30 - porn can cause ED, DE, loss of sexual interest.
  • Commercial
  • 30:30 - 42:20 - continues with porn and hook up culture and college, and affects on relationships and sexuality. Pretty good.

Chris Kraft, Ph.D. - Observations of a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Sexual Trend Behaviors in College Age Demographic

My guest is a long time colleague and friend. Dr. Chris Kraft and I are currently on the Leadership Council for Program in Human Sexuality at U of Minnesota. Chris is a licensed psychologist and AASECT certified sex therapist specially trained to achieve pragmatic and solution-oriented results for couples and individuals. His goal is to improve each person's happiness as it relates to their sexual intimacy, expression and identity.

Dr. Kraft specializes in the evaluation and treatment of all sexual and gender conditions: low sexual desire, erection, orgasm and arousal difficulties, genital pain conditions, sexual addiction and compulsivity, internet pornography, marital infidelity, sexual orientation, cross dressing, gender concerns, and other unique fetishes and sexual attractions.

Dr. Kraft is the co director of clinical services and instructor at the Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit in the Department of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Kraft is also a part-time Lecturer in the Psychological and Brain Sciences Department at the Johns Hopkins University where he teaches two human sexuality courses.

So we're going to look at what he sees from a therapist's standpoint is new in sexual compulsivity, internet pornography treatment...can it be 'cured'? Any new fetishes becoming more common place? And his unique position of teaching 2 different classes in Human Sexuality.
