Corona Virus Has Caused A Surge In Porn Use

We are in the midst of a pandemic. Businesses are closed. Schools and universities are closed. People are in ‘lockdown’. In many places people are only allowed to go outside to buy food and medicines.

It’s like a bad end-of-the-world movie.

But instead, it’s reality playing out in every one of our lives.

And it comes with lots of changes. Such as spending the majority of our time inside our homes.

One consequence of this, is a surge in the use of internet pornography.

Pornhub, the largest online porn website has seen an 18% increase in traffic, compared to similar periods.

Why such an increase?

Psychologists have indicated that this is probably due to the following factors:

  • People currently experience more psychological distress
  • Many people feel lonely
  • Many people go through stress, anxiety and negative emotions
  • In these times, many people are also simply bored

The takeaway: Many people seek a temporary relief from feeling down, and they find this relief in pornography.

However, can this increased use of pornography now, have negative consequences later?

Perhaps. And perhaps not.

But, we do know that the use of pornography, and particularly excessive use, can have significant negative impacts on men’s lives.

One important one, is that is can make a man’s expectation of sex unrealistic, and also distort his view of women.

A second one, is erectile dysfunction. Excessive use of porn can lead to something called porn-induced erectile dysfunction.
