“Can Porn Cause ED?” asks Men’s Health SG

Posted On: July 4, 2016

I’ve been busy since this survey finding “Nine in 10 teen boys exposed to porn: Survey” appeared in Straits Times.

  • I published an extract about what I feel about porn and adults on my blog here.
  • I wrote a letter to ST Forum and it was published on 1 July 2016. Read it here.
  • I also answered some questions on the link between porn and erectile dysfunction by Men’s Health Singapore and it’s appeared here. (P.S. I am the sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore and Malaysia.)

I’m pasting what I contributed below.

Basically, your hand and the images on your computer screen become your sexual triggers.

If you’ve been in a dry spell lately, start by switching up your solo sessions. “Masturbating in different ways actually helps more neuro pathways to develop in our brains,” says Dr Lee….

And if you always practice the same routine—and concentrate your hand action on the same part of your penis—try to vary that as well. These changes will open your body and brain up to the wider range of sexual sensations and images you’ll experience with a partner, she says.”
