This should give pause for thought to any man who's spent too much time in incognito mode.

Around 300 men and women aged between 20 and 40 participated in a sex survey, and the results revealed there was a strong correlation between men who watched excessive amounts of porn and those who suffered from lack of sexual desire and erectile dysfunction.

The findings were announced during a presentation held during the 112th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association.

Dr. Matthew Christman, the research leader, found that porn had only a trivial effect on female viewers' sex lives, while men who spent a lot of time on sites like PornHub disovered that the habit effected their psychosexual health, which proved damaging to their romantic relationships.

Of the 312 male patients surveyed, roughly 20% reported using porn three to five times a week. Nearly 4% of men said they preferred masturbating to pornography over having sex.
