Porn addiction is incredibly common in modern society. So is erectile dysfunction (ED). While most people are aware of these problems, what they aren’t aware of is that they are often connected to each other.

Porn addiction can lead to erectile dysfunction, and vice versa. In this article, we’re going to explain how these two conditions are connected and let you know how you can utilize somato-emotional repatterning to help manage both issues.

 

Porn Addiction

Many people become reliant on pornography and pornographic material to produce the stimulation that they require to become aroused. Many people also become addicted to masturbation and orgasms, which can both be achieved easily through the use of pornography.

Using pornography isn’t always indicative of an addiction. However, there are a number of signs and symptoms that might indicate a pornography addiction:

  • Frequent thoughts about pornography or masturbation
  • Being uncomfortable being in an area where you can’t use or watch porn
  • Trying to stop using or watching porn but being unable to
  • Missing out on activities or responsibilities like school or work to watch porn
  • Frequently taking bathroom breaks simply to watch porn and masturbate

If you notice any of the above issues, then it’s possible that you might be struggling with a pornography addiction. This could lead to the development of erectile dysfunction.

 

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a condition that occurs when a man has a hard time achieving an erection. This can be very difficult for his sexual relations, and can create problems in relationships. For example, his partner may feel that they are not sexually attractive if the man can’t achieve an erection.

Erectile dysfunction can be both physical and psychological in nature.

Physical erectile dysfunction is generally the result of some cardiovascular problem. The body requires blood to flow to the penis in order for it to become erect. Men with poor circulation often have a hard time getting erections.

Psychological erectile dysfunction can occur for a number of reasons as well. Men may have performance anxiety, which inhibits them from getting an erection. They may also struggle with trauma or other emotional problems.

The Link Between ED and Porn Addiction

Erectile dysfunction can lead to pornography addiction, and pornography addiction can lead to erectile dysfunction. The latter is most common, but both can occur. The two are linked, but not everyone understands why.

In some cases, men with erectile dysfunction may become addicted to pornography because it helps to provide the stimulation that they need to get an erection. Pornography can appeal to fantasies of all sorts – even unrealistic ones.

If a man has a hard time getting turned on, attending to his deepest fantasies can be a great help. However, relying on porn to fulfill his fantasies can lead to serious dependencies on pornographic material.

Some men also seek out porn because of psychological ED. When a man is watching porn, there is no pressure and no room for sexual-related anxieties to emerge. This can lead to pornography becoming their comfort zone.

It’s also possible that people watching porn can develop ED. In fact, this is quite common. Many men have become so reliant on porn that they find themselves in unfamiliar territory when they are actually having a sexual encounter.

They may find that they are not able to become stimulated or aroused by the woman, or that they feel like something is lacking because their fantasies aren’t being met. Watching too much porn can also lead men to develop performance anxiety, believing that they have to live up to the unrealistic standards set by the pornography industry.

Whatever the cause, both erectile dysfunction and porn addiction can be treated by the holistic treatment known as somato-emotional repatterning.

 

Somato-Emotional Repatterning

Somato-emotional repatterning is a mind-body technique that incorporates both physical and psychological aspects of a problem. This is much more effective than simply addressing one or the other.

Somato-emotional repatterning is a process that makes use of the body’s energy meridians. These are the same lines of energy that are utilized in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, which have been scientifically verified and proven to work.

These meridians are the pathways through which the vital forces flow. These vital forces provide us with the energy that we need to function. However, throughout life and as a result of certain behaviors, these meridians can become obstructed or begin to overflow.

Behaviors like pornography addiction can lead to obstructions or changes in the pathways of these meridians. Furthermore, physical or emotional problems can cause changes in the meridians that lead to ED, or that lead someone to feel that pornography is the only way that they can manage their sexual cravings.

In either situation, identifying the blockages or overflows in the meridians can be instrumental in helping someone understand their problem. A somato-emotional repatterning coach can help guide you through the process of unblocking and repairing damage done to these meridians, which can lead to you overcoming your ED or porn addiction – or both!

Conclusion

Porn addiction and erectile dysfunction are two very common problems, but that doesn’t make them any easier to deal with. Fortunately, there are a number of mind-body techniques such as somato-emotional repatterning that can help people understand and overcome these difficult problems.
