Naomi Wolf, who recently released her autobiography Vagina, (add to your reading list) is now on a mission to educate the public about your sexual life and the danger of internet pornography, and how it is "re-wiring the male brain"..check out this video..
This is particularly problematic for the sex life of teenagers whose whole concept of sex and sexual arousal is being skewed by the unrealistic depiction of sex on the internet. I see it frequently with men who have issues getting erections with a partner when they're not watching porn. We literally have to rewire the brain to experience pleasure in a sensate, as opposed to visual way. Don't get me wrong..I'm a fan of porn..It definitely has its place but like anything else a little moderation goes a long way. It can negatively effect your sexual life.
As so beautifully explained by my colleague Brian Estlin in his blog post below porn can also result in feelings of inadequacy and self judgement in men.

The year I discovered my love muscle is the year that my sex life became extraordinary and it can happen to you too! As a mother of two children, I thought that I knew all about the importance of doing Kegel exercises for a better sex life as they strengthen the pelvic floor after birth.
And I have to admit that even though I experienced some bladder leakage during strenuous exercise or intense coughing and knew that doing Kegels was supposed to help, I still neglected doing them or would start the Kegels for a few days and then forget….sound familiar?
For those of us just getting out of a long term relationship does this sound like a familiar scene? You are in the heat of passionate lovemaking and one of you goes to grab a condom.
The minute you begin to put it on, or even right at the beginning of penetration, the man loses his erection? This is the Condom Conundrums! Practicing safe sex is often a lot easier said than done when we are transitioning from a fluid bonded relationship.
