Ill effects of porn addiction or porn?

Sir related to my previous question (habit of seeing porn) I also want to know the scientific ill effects of porn addiction or porn?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Today internet offers many services which are very useful to the human civilization, be it encyclopedia, e-mail, e-shopping, etc but despite many useful services no one can deny that it too offers some evil services which are considered dangerous to the human civilization by all religions and one of these evil service is pornography. There are around 420 million pornographic WebPages, which include both paid and free porn content.

We after deep research found these ill effects of porn addiction or porn:

1. Majority of the porn addicts experience difficulty in their personal and social life as they isolate themselves to continue fueling their addiction.

2. Anti-pornography activist, Gail Dines, notes that young men who become addicted to porn neglect their schoolwork, spend huge amount of money they don’t have, become isolated from others and often suffer depression.
Dr. william strutem(phd in biopsychology from university of Illinois at Chicago) adds some more. Men using porn becomes highly intolerant, have high anxiety, narcissistic, curious, have low self esteem, depressed, dissociative, distractible.

3. One turns to frequent masturbation.

4. Ironically while viewing porn, it creates momentarily intense pleasurable experience, it ends up leading to several negative lingering psychological experience.

5. As men fall deeper into the mental habit of seeing porn, the exposure to it creates neural pathways, so through these path ways the erotic becomes easy next time as any material is viewed or as any thought of it goes through one’s mind, and as one continue to view, these neural paths become wider and clear and finally becomes an automatic pathway.

6. In married life it makes the real sexual relation with your spouse and the real world boring, thus creates differences in ones relationship in the real world.

7. Porn keeps one’s mind busy with it, which in turn decreases your productivity at work place or at school and you start losing your memory and interest. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
