PORN-RELATED CONCERNS

Sessions can be tailored to address erectile challenges, genital de-sensitization and other porn-related issues.

Nothing is broken, there is nothing to ‘fix’ . . . when porn consumption affects your arousal and sexual health, you may wish to make some changes.

 Learning new sexual tools and skills is an empowering way to re-wire pleasure in the body and enjoy pleasure free from reliance of vices and/or compulsive behaviors.

Porn consumption can easily develop into patterns and habits that may be unfulfilling and lead to lack of physical sensation and emotional and mental frustration. 

Please inquire if you have questions or would like to incorporate this into a session.

 
It’s important to understand the role of the brain and why watching excessive amounts of porn may lead to erectile challenges.
Here’s a brief breakdown of what happens:
Neurons are cells that receive and send messages between the body and brain. The brain has billions of neurons; these are the basic working units of the nervous system.
Neurotransmitters send chemical messages between these neurons. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and this helps the flow of information to the front of the brain which is linked to emotion and thought . . . AND to the reward systems (wanting, pleasure, desire, motivation).
Our brain cells are activated by what we see or hear. For example, when someone receives a hug, the brain releases dopamine and that makes them feel good. Dopamine regulates pathways of pleasure in the brain to the body and plays a crucial role in sexual arousal and erections. 

When a person watches porn, their brain is flooded with dopamine.

Too much dopamine can cause problems. The brain can get overloaded and overwhelmed, automatically diminishing some of the dopamine receptors. Long story short: the brain continues to release dopamine, which eventually means there are fewer receptors. Watching porn then no longer arouses the person as much or as quickly, which leads to a need for more porn that is more intense in order to obtain the original sensation.

Sexual activities that usually give folks a burst of dopamine and make them happy are no longer enough. Often, regular sex becomes unfulfilling and arousal with a partner can be challenging.

Porn is designed to capture attention. The ‘performers’ do things that don’t translate into real life . . . at all. People can become conditioned to this type of arousal and doesn’t carry into real life situations, resulting in declining dopamine levels and arousal difficulties.

If this is something you’d like to address, I’m happy to discuss further with you and incorporate learning opportunities into a session.
