    I skimmed the article. Are they basically saying lessening/stoping porn will help lessen their numbed response to pleasure and their performance anxiety?

    This article is a combination of anecdotal evidence and medical research that identifies behaviors in the already affected population (that is, people with ED.) It's a plausible hypothesis but it's just that so far -- a hypothesis. This article sounds way too conclusive.

    The dopamine desensitization bit is one of the most cogent arguments for porn "addiction," and that article summarizes it well. They also neatly hew to calling it "dysfunction" rather than "addiction," which is probably wise as the argument over whether a biological drive (such as libido, hunger, and so on) can be stretched into addiction.

    Regardless, the article seems to allow the inference to be made that internet porn use is an all-or-nothing thing. Cognitive behavioural therapists would be outraged at such a flagrant use of a cognitive distortion. After all, the research quoted suggests that it is the overuse of porn that is the problem.

    The suggestion being that it's gluttony, not porn use, that's problematic. I'd like to read some actual science, and not anecdotal (as Young Native aptly pointed out) evidence from, of all things, internet forums. (He writes, smiling at the irony of saying so in an internet forum.)

    Or, go even further and make all women wear 'burkas' so men cannot get aroused by them; why us guys would get so excited and beat-off in 20 seconds after seeing female's slender finger or ankle.
