They make you fantasize about your sexual world with all the makeovers they use.

Most of the boys in a survey revealed that porn sites are the best source to learn how to have sex. Many adults try to copy the porn in their lives which leads to developing unrealistic expectations from their partners.

2. Improve mental health

According to the study, the link between pornography consumption and mental health outcome includes depression, anxiety, loneliness, and low self-esteem.

Mental Health Exercise

The data from the study shows that the link gets stronger upon watching the adult content. Even though some people watch these videos to escape negative emotions, it still has the same disturbing effect on our brain.

Once you quit the porn, you no longer will feel the need to escape from anything.

3. Spend your time wisely

Watching porn can be pretty time-consuming with all the switching, from one video to another, browsing, and the time that goes into masturbation (we should count that too). An average person, who is too much into porn, spends about 2-5 hours a day watching and doing similar activities.

Time Management Business

Well, I believe there are more important things we can invest that time into. For example, learn something new; spend some quality time with friends or alone. You can invest that time in yourself rather than wasting it on 2 minutes of pleasure.

4. Save your physical energy

The more you watch pornographic videos, the frequently you masturbate. It is very well known that masturbation takes a great deal of physical strength.

If a person goes to the bathroom after every one hour to do the thing, he probably drains more than half of his stamina. As a result, he will be lazy and dull all day.

5. Promote healthy relationship

As mentioned earlier, the porn industry is the biggest lair. As you watch more porn, you will subconsciously want to try it with your partner. If you watch closely, porn is all about sex and sex alone.

Healthy Relationship

There is no emotion, affection, love, or any such thing. If you cut out the romantic part, that’s all you get. It will have an unhealthy impact on your relationship.

6. Socialization

People who watch a lot of porn always isolate themselves from society. The reason is that their habit makes them feel awkward and ashamed and makes them feel they do not fit in the group.

People

Their addiction somehow interferes with their social needs. Thus, they cut themselves out from everywhere.

You need to understand that you are always a part of that group, cutting out the habit is better, which made you cut them out.

7. Build up confidence

It is not said very often, but once you quit porn, you will have a different respect for yourself. It is connected with your self-esteem because the more you watch them, the lesser you will think of yourself.

In the beginning, you might enjoy it more than you would have imagined but believe me, at some point, you will not think good about yourself. Porn is destroying your confidence level, get it back…quit it.

8. Prevent depression

The reason you feel like you are in heaven after watching porn is that your brain releases a load of dopamine. Once it becomes your habit, it will be unlikely to get the same satisfaction as before.

The brain urges more of the same activity, eventually pushing you to the path of depression.

9. Be a better child

Let’s, face it. No parent wants their child to spend hours watching something that is only causing problems. At some point, they probably know and believe me, they would be a lot happier if you quit it.

They know the consequences, maybe from their experience or from others, and don’t want you to go through it.

You can put all those energy, time, and equipment to better use.

10. Prevent sexual dysfunction

Watching a lot of porn can have a bad impact on your sex life. Regular consumption can lead to an increase in the number of times you masturbate. Study shows that the more you spend time in the bathroom, the less you perform in bed.

It is linked with your psychology, where your brain develops sexual anxiety that makes you unable to satisfy your partner.

11. It promotes violence against women

Many porn videos contain violence against women. One can argue that the content they show is merely an act and just for the video. But the impact it has on the young generation or on those who watch porn is not something society would appreciate.

Violence Against Women

As said earlier, most of the men copy the things they see on their screens. And that leads them to the desire where they see their partner with pure lust.

12. Increased energy

Watching porn costs you so much of your energy. Don’t agree? Well, when you watch porn, the first thing that happens is the blood rushes to your brain, and you start imagining, which draws your stamina.

Second, after you finish watching, you are more likely to touch yourself, and that my friend consumes a lot of your energy.

Once you stop watching this pornographic content, you will see that you are more energetic than before, much active than before.

13. Changes in sexual preference

Again, when you watch porn, your brain releases dopamine, and once it becomes a habit, it will be difficult for you to achieve the same level of satisfaction.

In order to get aroused or even perform as before, you will have to depend on some external agents to boost your excitement.

To enjoy real and meaningful intercourse, you will have to quit outsourcing your excitement to a fictional world.

14. Appreciation for your body

Watching adult content not only affects your physical desire but also interferes with your psychology.

When you watch a porn video, you will see a well-shaped body, slim and glowing face. But ask yourself, are they real?

I mean, yes, they are, but this is what they do. But you are not a porn star, though you compare your body with theirs.

Reasons to Stop Watching Porn
Appreciate Your Body

You dislike your body for not being the perfect one. Once you stop watching, you will realize that you are a social person with the perfect body.

Don’t forget you are not going to perform on-screen, and your partner loves you the way you are.

15. Stop yourself from addiction

Porn is like any other addiction. Once you develop a habit of watching, you will start craving it physically and mentally. We can compare it to a regular drug because they both have the same features.

You need to stop watching porn if you want your time and energy to be well utilized. Addiction of any kind is not good.

16. Save your relationship

You will sabotage your relation if you continue to browse adult sites. Most of the men have stated that porn affected them and their relationships. And the reason is pretty clear that they were so busy in the world of fantasy, they forgot to invest themselves in real relations.

They also say that once they stopped watching porn, their relationship began to pick its pace.

17. New fondness for people

As we discussed before, the porn industry is total trash and fake. The body and the glamour we see on the screen, somehow we want to see the same in the real world, which is not possible.

Another thing is, your eyes will see people through their clothes. You will think about what you saw all the time in every person, and that is just sick.

Stop watching porn and then look at people; you will have a whole new perception of them.

18. Save your money

I know a lot of you watch these contents by using free sites or by using a VPN, so you think it doesn’t cost you anything.

You couldn’t be more wrong. When you spend your time watching them and then doing the after work, don’t you think that time could’ve been used for a better thing?

Reasons to Stop Watching Porn
Saving Money

Even so, some sites charge you with membership and premium user crap.

After you quit your habit, you will be able to save a lot of time, and dear…, time is money.

19. Free your brain

A survey was conducted done by a group of people where they asked several questions to porn addicts. One of those questions was ‘How your day look likes being so much into porn?’ They said that the whole day they think about what they watched, regardless of where they are or with who they are.

According to them, it is like those videos have hijacked their brain, and they crave it all the time. They are not proud of how they look at people. So, give your brain freedom and stop watching porn.

20. A real connection with your partner

If you are having physical relation with your partner using porn techniques, believe me, that is not what you would want.

Sex is all about emotions, feelings, love, and expressing oneself truly. But what you do, involves none of that.

Stop taking help from something so nasty to build your beautiful relationship. Let your feelings and emotion express you the way you are.

Conclusion

I know many of you think you are watching them for your relationship, to learn to be good in bed, to satisfy your partner, and all but believe me, it has a lot more drawbacks than it has advantages.

Look at your partner with love and not through the eyes of a porn addict. You will have a magical bond when you feel things for her/him from your heart.

If you develop feelings for them watching porn…, my dear, that is not coming from the right place. And you need help!
