Before we go into crushing porn out of your life, you need to understand what pornography is and the forms it takes. So we ask the obvious question, what is pornography? Most often than not, we claim to know something when in the real sense, we know little about it. It is human nature to assume everything that sounds common to be public knowledge. In this article, we shall be looking at some eye-opening facts of how bad porn is for you. But before we do that, we must grasp the true meaning of the concept of pornography.

For those who do not know, pornography, (abbreviated as porn) refers to the portrayal of a sexual subject with the intention to create an arousal. Over the centuries, pornography has been portrayed in so many forms. Some of the common forms in which pornography is presented include magazines, books, sculpture, photographs, postcards, paintings, drawings, sound recording, writing, film, video, and animation.

You need to know what porn is to be able to stay away from this evil vice that can terribly ruin your life. Pornography, like most addictions, is difficult but possible to quit. It will give you a short-term pleasure at the advent of long term suffering.

Why watching porn has continued to escalate in our modern era? One of the obvious explanations is that porn quite addictive and as a result of those who are hooked to it always feels like they must increase their dosage of porn to gain a sense of normality. The worse thing is that pornography material also evolves with time; becoming more intriguing and sophisticated. This pushes porn addicts to the limits of wanting more every day. The reason for this is because they want to achieve the same arousal as before.

Pornography Lowers Human Dignity and Value

Generally speaking, pornography is bad for you because it can demonize your human dignity. For women who act pornography, you need to stop. Acting porn shows your depleted sense of self-respect, and it shows you have no fear of God. Pornography leads to lusting and according to religious scripts, this is one of the deadliest sins.  God did not intend for human beings to lust over each other’s flesh but to admire one another’s virtues. Porn overtime can overpower the human body and mind. Those who agree to take part in pornography are in essence agreeing to be used as satanic vessels.

Pornography is only used as a means of using people to lure others into lusting after men and women. Porn industries make money by using people having the pleasure to arouse others. This is the lowest a man can get.  Using your body not only to make money but to arouse others who you know very well cannot find you in reality. And the worst bit of it is that the participants in the sex scenes have no real affection between them, which portrays to you fake love.

Watching porn is degrading the human race because it portrays false loves. You might be carried away into thinking that what you are watching is the real show of true love. Porn is an act, meant to arouse you and show you the fleshy and lusty side of human beings with no dignity at all. Those who watch porn do it because they want to avoid rejection. But little do they know that the porn they are watching is doing more harm than good to them. In fact, those people you crave for, who are in the porn movies only see you as window shoppers behind as screen. They do what they do know you will fantasize and go mad for them. At the back of their mind, they know only too well, you are only pleasuring your eyes but cannot have them. This is the real and most painful rejection you can ever experience. The earlier you notice it, the better.

Porn impacts negatively on your kids

We have already seen how porn demeans human dignity. But we need to ask ourselves one thing, what is the impact of porn on kids. Kids play a major role in our lives. Addressing the issue of porn on our kids is important. Porn has been made easily and readily available almost everywhere. Our morality is on the brink of oblivion. We expect our kids to restore what is left of the human dignity. However, that cannot happen with the ever increasing accessibility of porn material. This section is particularly addressed to the young folks and kids. You are the future of humanity.

As a young person, you need to ask yourself a few questions. One of them is very obvious? What would you like to be when you grow up.? Whichever the answer you must know that porn is bad for your life.

Sexually explicit images, as well as erotic art, have had a place almost in each culture. The depiction of and sharing the private sexual with the whole world in the real sense obliterates the concept of intimacy. As a kid, you have been growing up with the knowledge that sex is sacred. It should stay that way. Intimacy is a crucial aspect of sexual health, and it must be preserved and held sacred in your mind from a tender age. Watching porn will take that away from you.

Early images influence your fundamental understanding of the concept of sexuality. People usually develop fundamental beliefs or “sexual archetypes “about sexuality. If you start off watching porn at a young age, your beliefs will be affected negatively.

Your brain uses archetypes as shorthand for quick categorization of things before collecting information about them. We develop sexual archetypes our brain stores information about the properties of experiences, people or images which lead to our arousal sexually. Your earliest association with sexual arousal should be very important and hence the need to avoid negative sexual archetypes which are portrayed in pornography.

The kinds of images you see as a kid can influence your sexual archetypes and your sexual behavior later on in your adult life. Studies show that kids exposed to violent pornography scenes are five times more likely to coerce or force a person into having a sexual intercourse compared to other kids who watched non-violent porn (note however that both forms of sex are extremely harmful to your life). If you grow up associating sex with violence at an early age will be detrimental your sex life as well as the life of your partner later on. It is for this reason that kids must particularly stay away from porn.

Pornography affects your heart

There is a lot of scientific research about the effect of pornography on your heart. All you have to do is look in the right places. Studies also indicate that porn is dangerous to your brain’s health. According to many scientific studies, porn affects how the visual overstimulation of the lower brain can lead to changes in your neurological pattern as well as the brain chemistry. In actuality pornography messes with your brain. If porn can adversely affect your brain what can it do to your heart?

Porn can numb your heart, and this is a scientific analysis and research finding. Watching too much porn causes your brain to stimulate all your neurological signals, and sends them to your heart as well the reproductive and the adrenal glands.

While your primitive brain is aroused by porn and wants to find pleasure and mate, your heart, on the other hand, wants to connect with someone. In the real sense, though, there is no real person to connect to or be intimate with. This creates some form of imbalance. If this process is repeated many times over, your body adapts to constant over-stimulation. It does this by becoming numb. This scenario does not only happen to our body but our brain as well. Similarly the same happens with our hearts. The brain through the vagus nerve sends neurological signals to the heart. This prompts your heart to get numb. All the activities of loneliness, disconnection, and frustration lead to an incoherent heart. An incoherent heart has incoherent heart rhythm waves which can be observed through a monitor.

Porn has a host of other effects on your body and mind as well.

Porn is addictive

Porn is more addictive than either cocaine or heroin. And as with other forms of addiction, you will waste a lot of your time behind the screen ogling at people who are not there with you. When you watch porn frequently and regularly, your body sends chemicals to your brain’s pleasure cells. Heroin and cocaine have been found to mimic the effect of porn on your brain. Perhaps this is the reason why all the three are all harmful to your health.

Porn breaks up most relationships

Studies show that porn is one of the leading and growing reasons for divorce. Pornography makes your spouse feel inferior to whatever you watch on watch. If you get hooked on porn, you will always suffer from low self-esteem. As a matter of fact, porn distorts your view of each other. The fantasy created by porn cannot be lived up to.

Moreover, porn creates unrealistic expectations of each spouse. Ladies need to know that not very man is well endowed with a foot-long hammer. Likewise, porn makes men expect every woman to have huge knocker. Porn conveys some seriously misleading misconceptions to its views. These unfulfilled unrealistic expectations lead to dissatisfaction in your marriage and eventually divorce.

Porn can lead to violent behavior and mistreatment of women

Porn portrays sex like a combat where the man dominates with disregard to the woman’s feelings. In a research conducted in 2010, the content of more than 300 popular mainstream pornographic sites was analyzed. The research found out that degradation, physical violence as well as verbal aggression were depicted in 90% of the videos. In 95% of the scenes, these acts were orchestrated against female actors. Women in these scenes fake pleasure and hide the torture they go through. Porn performers are regularly exposed to the disease, abuse, and drugs. Most of us out here want to try out everything we watch in the porn movies. In the end, we never realize the danger we expose our partners.

Porn is bad for you, and there is no better and clearer way to put it. Not only does porn harm your health but it is also disastrous to your relationships and your social life altogether. Producers of porn do not give a rat’s ass about accurate or significant it is to real baby making. Therefore, someone should not poison your mind with unfounded innuendos such as “porn will teach you how to make love.” All they are interested in is hooking you to their videos so you can keep lining up their pockets. Choose to live a longer, happy and true life by quitting porn.
