NO: In fact you can become more in touch with the sensations of your body and the triggers for orgasm. Many sex therapists use masterbation to help control p.E. With excersizes in control.

Porn can: Disrupt real intimacy by cultivating the fantasy of the physically flawless woman who cares about nothing but sex all the time and everyday and lives only for the sexual, lustful fulfillment of the man. Going to therapy and a 12 step group like sex addicts anonymous can start to work on this split between fantasy and genuine intimacy between two real people.
