  • Too much porn can make young men impotent.
  • The reality is simply no longer exciting enough.
  • increasing number are now being hit by porn impotence.

This is something we discussed and researched for some time in the U.S., including the site's yourbrainonporn.com that caters to men who have watched a lot of porn and now find it difficult to get an erection when they are trying to be with a partner of flesh and blood. The problem seems now to have taken hold Sweden. If this writing today Dagens Nyheter inside.

A quick search on the net on the words "impotent of porn" you will find several threads on some of the biggest discussion forums where men, many of them young and even some women, discusses the issue. While pornography is becoming easier to find and consume it becomes increasingly common to masturbate to porn, which can sometimes be very rough and far from reality.

For some, this can cause problems.

DN has spoken with Inger Björklund, psychotherapist at RFSU Clinic in Stockholm where you meet more and more young men with erection problems from too much porn viewing.

- It seems that reality is not sufficient to create a strong enough excitement. Man "teeth" is not a real partner. This is not a new phenomenon, but today's porn available around the clock. I-phones, I-pads, computers, televisions - anytime and anywhere you can see more and more advanced films, says Inger Björklund to Dagens Nyheter.

At the hospital in Karlskrona is a specific sexological reception. The manager Goran Sedvallson think the problem with porn impotence will grow with that pornography is becoming more accessible. Those who watch too much porn can trade in a bad ignition pattern he says to DN:

- It may be that men may not be able or feel pleasure when they have sex for real. They are so influenced by porn movie's fictional world that they can not handle a normal intercourse in real life. Obviously this can cause problems for the individual and in a relationship, says Sedvallson to DN.

According to a survey study Ungdomsstyrelsen done so watching nine out of ten young men and three out of ten young women more or less regular porn.
