Everyday Health – Watching sex films can sometimes be helpful: “It can help people who are anxious about their sexuality get past their apprehensions.

When they compared that amount of pornography watched with experiences of ED, they found that of those below age 35 who watched 300 minutes per week, 30 percent had ED compared with 10 percent in those who watched less than 30 minutes.

In the 35 to 45 age group that watched 300 minutes per week, 40 percent had ED.

However, in general only 5 percent of participants were watching 300 minutes or more.
