The American Urological Association has surveyed a pornographic viewing habit for men and women to track the physical problems that may arise due to this addiction.

The research shows that women aged 20 to 40, who are habituated to watch porn did not suffer from sexual dysfunction. Specially, the pornography addicted men gradually lose their interest to have real sex with life-partners. Also, men who spend more time in watching Internet X-rated video get detached mentally and physically from partners in the bedroom, as revealed by the researchers.

The research was based on the two different surveys. The study is based on more than 300 women and men between 20 and 40 who visited a San Diego urology clinic for treatment.

Approximately 21.3 percent of men admitted to watching porn three to five times in a week, while one out of four viewed pornography less than a week. Among men, five percent said they watched porn six to ten times in every week, whereas 4.3 percent admitted to viewed more than ten times each week, The Sun reported.

“For this reason, it’s important for physicians to understand the underlying issues leading to the sexual dysfunction prior to suggesting treatment options,”Dr. Alukal further replied, as covered by Cosmopolitan.
