Russia Blocks All Access to Pornography in Their Country

Rarely, do I say this, but good for Russia.

Russia’s primary media regulator has stepped in to block all access to popular porn websites…Roskomnadzor gave users last year a sarcastic message when a similar ban went into effect: “[A]s an alternative you could try and meet someone in real life.”

As of this week, the media regulator simply referred to its 2015 stance on the issue, noting, “Dear lovers of the Internet, this piece of advice still stands.”

Would it be a better world if more nations followed Russia’s lead? Although it will never happen in the United States, most definitely.

Trending: Should a Man Ever Date a Single Mother?

I know, I know. Pornography is a controversial topic. Every guy has looked at it at one point or another and many of them have never had any negative effects from it. But, an awful lot of people have and the issues it can cause for men are legion.

That makes perfect sense if you think about it because what are you doing when you use pornography? You are training yourself to be sexually aroused by an image on a screen instead of a real woman. Worse yet, what you are stimulated by on the screen may be completely different from anything you’re doing in person with a woman. This is why there are a lot of men who use pornography that have trouble performing when the action moves from the screen to the bedroom.

The consequences of this are enormous.

Viagra’s core market used to be older men in poor health, but according to a number of studies and surveys, between 14% and 35% of young men experience ED. “It’s crazy but true,” says Mary Sharpe of the Reward Foundation, an educational charity focusing on love, sex and the internet. “Until 2002, the incidence of men under 40 with ED was around 2-3%. Since 2008, when free-streaming, high-definition porn became so readily available, it has steadily risen.”

If Russia is going to miss out on this because of its ban, I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
