Does masturbation cause erectile dysfunction

Why porn and masturbation can be too much of a good thing.

Like fat, salt and booze, masturbation is one of those touchy health-related topics for which the latest medical news always seem to contradict the advice of the past. Eat no fat! Or, just good fat – but not too much! But not too little, either! And hey, salt is a killer – but it can be deadly if you don't eat it! Such is the progress of science. Similarly, studies have long shown that masturbation is perfectly normal and can even be a physically healthy activity – in middle-aged men it cuts the risk of prostate cancer. It can also reduce anxiety, and thereby help restore stress-racked immune systems. And yet according to experts, there is now emerging evidence suggesting that overly frequent masturbation – aroused by the vast cornucopia of freely available porn we enjoy today – is leading to serious cases of erectile dysfunction (ED).

That may sound like anti-onanistic propaganda, but medical professionals say that masturbating too much is actually a pretty standard form of addiction, but it's worsened by pornography. "When people start watching porn, there is a huge flood of dopamine in the brain, " explains Dr. Elizabeth Waterman, a psychologist at Morningside Recovery Center in Newport California. "Over time, the receptors that were once very sensitive become less sensitive, and normal physical intimacy does not produce enough dopamine to stimulate the dopamine receptors." In other words, the more porn you watch, the more – and harder and more graphic – porn you need in order to get it up. If the trend continues, men can find themselves physically unable to maintain an erection, much less enjoy sexual contact with another person.

None of his links actually provide factual justification for anything that he is stating.
#1 - link to study on amounts of water retained and lost in chickens through water and air dryed processing facilities. NOTHING about his ridiculous fecal soup statement.
#2 - Eating small amounts of meat as prescribed by most physicians does not cause erectile dysfunction. And the links provided to not provide reliable backup to his comment either. Instead, it is high cholesterol that accounts for some cases of dysfunction. And much of that cholesterol can be accounted for by genetic disposition
