You may have noticed that when you view a pornographic video, you aren’t accomplishing anything else. The content of that video has your full attention, and you don’t feel compelled to focus on other distractions, work, or hobbies during that time. At Desert Solace, we advise you to be aware of the effect pornography has on your productivity.

In 2016, a collective 4,599,000,000 hours—over 52 millennia—were spent viewing pornography. These are hours that weren’t used to spend time with family, get ahead in a career, enjoy a healthier and less-secretive hobby, or otherwise contribute positively to one’s lifestyle and the world. When employees spend working hours watching pornography instead of focusing on their tasks, the work industry suffers. Clients and consumers are not receiving the quality services and products they pay for.

The issue of productivity goes beyond the short term. NoFap, a Reddit community of about 73,000 reformed pornography addicts and individuals committed to fighting porn addiction, recently conducted a survey among their members regarding the benefits of quitting pornography. In that survey, 67% percent reported a significant increase in both energy and productivity after giving up pornography, allowing them to dedicate more time to other matters they care about. These individuals found themselves to be much happier in the long run.
