Part of what I do for a living is follow trends in the health and fitness industry. I research what will be the next "Tae Bo" or "Zumba", or what diet fads are going to be popular in the next year or so. It doesn't take an expert to see that the U.S. population, as well as most other industrialized countries, are getting much fatter much quicker. I believe this trend will get worse in the future. As long as we have high calorie/low nutrient/great tasting food available at all times, this is most likely what we will choose to consume.
At the same time, technology has made our lives much much easier than those of past generations. Our ancestors had to physically work to survive, so they burned more calories in the process. Chopping wood to stay warm burns a hell of lot more calories than playing video games or watching t.v..
This brings me to my comparison between porn and obesity. The 2 basic needs a species has for survival is consuming nutrients aaaaaand procreation(getting some.) Eating high calorie food and storing it as energy used to keep our ancestors alive, this is why we prefer pizza and cheesecake to asparagus and chicken breasts. Our ancient ancestors wouldn't have the slightest clue what the hell a Big Mac was, but it would taste awesome to them. It would be super stimulus to them. That is what porn is to sex, super stimulation. The research on this site and others, not to mention our own anecdotal evidence, suggest that porn use is on the rise everywhere that computers are available. We can see what it is doing to us and to the women(future or present) we love who have to deal with the side effects of our over stimulation.
This website didn't exist 10 years ago. If you google any combination of masturbation/porn/erectile dysfunction you will see a lot of hits, websites and forums are popping up all over the place now with men scared of what is going wrong with their equipment. Scariest thing of all is that most of these guys are young. An article somewhere on this site talks about all of the cialis/viagra ads being pushed to younger and younger guys now a days.
I think websites like this could be one the original sources of information for young people when this porn epidemic starts to pick up speed. If I'm not mistaken Marnia and Gary didn't create this site for this problem. It transformed into this version now because guys kept getting sent here accidently while looking into why they were getting E.D. problems and making the connection to porn. This site and YBOP could be on the front lines of this if porn related ED really does turn in to an epidemic.
Maybe we should start thinking of ways to combat this before it is to late.
