Does Adult Visual Content Damage the Tumescent Male Organ?

It’s definitely not headline news that there is a lot of adult visual content out there or that a lot of men enjoy utilizing it—sometimes a great deal of it. In recent years, there have been claims that exposure to adult visual content is dangerous to male organ health, with the idea promoted that it can cause problems in getting or maintaining a tumescent male organ. But is tumescence dysfunction actually a serious side effect of viewing adult visual content? A new study indicates that the claims are exaggerated.

Adult visual content use

Exactly how many people view adult visual content and how much is not known for sure, but there have been some studies and surveys that provide some possible answers. According to one source, 40,000,000 Americans visit adult sites on a regular basis, and 70% of men between the ages of 18 and 24 visit adult visual content sites monthly. Another survey, run by a non-profit Christian organization, found that almost 80% of men between 18 and 30 view adult content, and that 30% of those men are daily adult visual content consumers.

How accurate these numbers are is difficult to say. Even when surveys and studies provide anonymity, it is likely that at least some (and perhaps many) men may refuse to admit to adult visual content use or may understate their actual usage. But whatever the actual numbers, it’s safe to say that many men utilize adult visual content on a frequent basis.

The tumescent male organ issue

Some groups and individuals claim that an epidemic of adult content use is causing an epidemic of tumescence dysfunction among men, leading to fears of multitudes of men with serious tumescent male organ issues. A study published in a peer-reviewed medical journal looked at this issue.

The study looked at sensually active men whose records were drawn from three sources. Almost 150 undergraduate men in the U.S. were studied, along with almost 300 online survey participants and 433 men drawn from a crowdsourcing platform. As part of the study, all participants were assessed for tumescent male organ issues, as well as for adult visual content use.

When the scientists studied the data, they found no relationship between tumescence dysfunction and mere adult visual content use in general. They reported that, overall, the study participants had “very high levels of tumescence functioning.” In addition, serious tumescence issues were rare among sensually active adult content users.”

The scientists did find a link between those who defined their adult visual content use as problematic and tumescent male organ issues. However, they found that the evidence indicated that this was merely an association, not a causal relationship—in other words, it is unlikely that the tumescence dysfunction resulted from use of adult visual content.

While not conclusive, the study does indicate that, for most men, use of adult visual content in and of itself is not likely to lead to tumescence dysfunction, although there could be other sensual issues associated with its use. Men who find their level of adult content usage to be problematic should seek help from a mental health professional in order to resolve this issue.

Although adult visual content may not create a tumescent male organ issue for most men, it still pays to take steps to keep the organ in its best possible health to better enjoy its performance capabilities. Men should regularly apply a top-drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to better maintain general male organ health. The best creams will have several ingredients that promote healthy members, including L-carnitine and L-arginine. The former is a neuroprotective agent that helps to maintain proper male organ sensitivity, which may otherwise be damaged through rough handling or overuse. The latter is an amino acid that helps produce nitric oxide and thereby better enables member blood vessels to expand properly for increased blood flow.
