Porn-induced erectile dysfunction on The Butterfly Effect (Jon Ronson)

Printer-friendly version

Well known writer and journalist Jon Ronson produced a 7-part series on the unintended consequences of porn tube sites. Several of the segments are focused on how the tube sites affected the porn industry. In segment #6, Ronson addresses sex dolls, odd anxieties, and porn-induced ED, which begins at 19:27.

The ED section contains two parts: (1) a few comments from a Gary Wilson interview, (2) Ronson on a porn set where he notices that young male “porn stars” need to surf PornHub to achieve erections for porn scenes. The producer and one of the male actors confirm that young men often need streaming porn to get them “ready” for a scene. For today's porn actors, real-life porn actresses aren't as exciting as porn tube-sites! It’s quite telling that twenty-something porn stars need porn to become sufficiently aroused to make porn.
