Why Porn Gives You The Worst Sleep Ever

The night is the hardest time to be alive and 4am knows all of my secrets.” – Poppy Z. Brite

According to Pornhub.com, the largest tube porn site in the world, porn usage spikes between the hours of 10 p.m. and 12 a.m., which is generally the hours most people go to sleep.

The problem is when dopamine increases at night, it delays melatonin production in your body. Melatonin is the hormone responsible for controlling your sleep and wake cycles.

Melatonin production kicks in around 10 p.m. for most people, so if you are watching porn and masturbating then you are releasing dopamine, which gets you excited, alert, and awake instead of preparing for sleep. So although you may feel relaxed and fall sleep after climaxing to porn, it’s a restless type of sleep.

This means that your body will start producing melatonin later in the night so when you wake up in the morning at 7 a.m. your body still has melatonin inside. This means you wake up feeling groggy, in a brain fog, and lethargic. And it’s not because you didn’t sleep enough hours but because you did not get restful sleep.

And since your body still has melatonin inside, it might not fully go away until 10 a.m. to noon, so you’ve spent your entire morning in a hazy rut and you don’t fully wake up until the middle of the day.

In this situation, you’ve spent half of your day in a “slump” and you might be thinking that you’re feeling depressed or you’ve got some problems. But really it’s because you got restless sleep due to watching porn late at night.

If you were to abstain from watching porn late at night, then you would notice an increase in energy and alertness in the mornings. Give it a try…
