The internet has massively changed the way that porn is accessed and consumed. Once you had to visit the local newsagency, furtively pick up the magazine of choice and slide it onto the counter for payment. Or make a trip to the closest adult shop to order a DVD which you may have to wait weeks to be delivered. And let's not forget the curtained-off space at the local video rental store.
Now, the vast majority of porn is watched on the internet. You can watch it in the comfort of your own home or other location of your choosing that has an internet connection.
Porn is, literally, at your fingertips.
Sexual desire is complex. It’s multi-dimensional, multi-causal and multi-layered.
When we think of lower libido, we typically think of women. It’s common to hear stories of women who don’t feel waves of lust coursing through them. Low sexual desire in women has been normalised to the point that “Not tonight honey, I have a headache” is a trope we have all heard on TV.
What about men who don’t feel the spontaneous, frequent, gripping urge to throw their partner to the bed and rip off their clothes? This isn’t something we often consider. Society sees men as hungry beasts, always wanting sex.
