The need to satisfy one’s sexual demands has not only confined the youth to personal carnal gratification for porn, but also has led to societal and marital hindrances. According to studies, the teenagers are more inclined towards the knowledge of sex, and the behaviour of body and that of opposite sex towards sexual intercourse. The word ‘sex’ incorporates mysteries to which the youth stands abound, and seeks to gather particular answers. Generally, as mentioned, the internet comes to the rescue, disguising the pleasures of porn in its enlarged universe. An infinite catalogue of videos, stories, cartoon memes of sexual intercourse, chat rooms, and even programmed sex sites are available across the national domain of internet servers. These sites target the 356 million youngsters of the country. Researches confirm that a healthy fraction of that number is involved into porn viewing for around 2-8 hours of the day. Further, the number extends to both males and females. A broader look into the severity of porn addiction in India summarises the vastness of the scenario.

Converging to the effects of porn on teenagers and the youth, the doctors and sexologists convey that couples with a positive adherence to sex education will never treat porn as a mere tool for one’s own pleasure. They will rather savour the taste of the whole experience to maximize the pleasure of sex with their partners. But, most of the teenagers consider sex as a source of fun, and get trapped into its addiction in the longer run. Porn addiction pushes young couples into unrecognized and risky sexual behaviours. They tend to behave and act differently, and cut that viable rope of interconnection between their partners. The addiction also tends to deteriorate the married life in future prospects. Numerous cases have witnessed a rise in rural and urban areas, where the cause of affliction in the marriage is porn addiction. The youth tends to modify their approach towards lifestyle, and experience emotional distancing, and convergence on to unrealistic demands and expectations. Feelings of inferiority rise among the female halves when men are more prone to porn, and need the same for arousal during sex. In worse cases, examples of replication of acts as shown in the porn movies have also been reported to many doctors. Excessive obsession and violent and unnatural ways to reach sexual bliss stands as further negative effects of porn addiction among the Indian youth.

Sexologists confirm that porn addicted viewers develop unquenchable needs, and their desires turn compulsive and uncontrollable. Hence, sex education stands as a positive solution for it. According to the experts, sex education, if conveyed to children since an early age will help in lowering the excessiveness of the obsession. Sex education can help in preventing bad outcomes of addicted sex, risky behaviour and easier addressing of myths that are related to sex.
