How pornography changes the brain.


Repeated consumption of porn causes the brain to literally rewire itself.

It triggers the brain to pump out chemicals and form new nerve pathways, leading to profound and lasting changes in the brain.

Believe it or not, studies show that those who consume pornography more frequently have brains that are less connected, less active, and even smaller in some areas. [1]

I thought this was an interesting article which explores and talks about pornography's effect on the brain.

The implication being that it is or can be used as yet another drug to quell the masses.

The premise being that the masses are constantly being brainwashed or sedated, whether its the media (TV shows and "news"), street drugs, pharmaceutical drugs, alcohol etc.

Now adding pornography to the list.

Its an interesting article and perspective and thought I'd share it with the ATS community.

ATS says this is a family site so why is pornography getting a discussion thread.

Clearly, they would be referring to inappropriate content (pictures), not a discussion regarding the negative effects of something like pornography (in this case a drug) on the brain.

Its an obvious distinction.

I believe that your consumption of pornography has altered your neuro-pathways thereby affecting your ability to think logically.

I dont watch pornography. I get the real thing from my wife. Why get consumed by fantasyland when you can have the real thing with an actual human being that cares about you.

Some people have wives were the porn is better.


ETA: On topic, this would probably explain why there are so many free porn sites available to all.

I for ine think this is a healthy psychologically orientated topic.

I have no doubt that it has an unhealthy effect on the brain.
But I’m more concerned with the effect on developing brains. Adults can do as they please, I’m worried about the kids!

You can define all life as a chemical reaction -never a truer word was said in jest especially when you tell people that they are junkies looking for a fix as you tell them that basically it is just rubbing two pieces of skin together ,Scratch yourself as you impart those wise words to the young Padewan

This is a common statement, in 99% of cases (anecdotal) the speaker is a porn user


Most humans watch porn for obvious reasons.

It definitely desensitises younger users. It is definitely addictive. An orgam after all is endorphines, which is the same as a drug.

The attractive thing about porn is that it is free, no strings attached and on tap.

However porn is full of negative outcomes:
Sexualisation of women
Extreme practices becoming the norm
Promotion of the perfect body which is the cause of many issues in people young and old
General addiciton to unhealthy practices

And now we can add brain damage and shrinking to the list!

I remember a day when porn just made you blind.

This whole world is poison. Food is bad for you, chemicals are bad for you, plastic is bad for you, sitting is bad for you, TV is bad for you. Everything is bad for you. WTF do you do? We live in the information age. Unless you're going to live the miserable life of an ascetic monk your brain is going to be processing data practically 24/7.

We don't become better by turning the screens off. What I want? A higher IQ. I want to process more data, faster.

Our bodies were poorly designed.

The average age children start seeking and watching porn is 10 (some even younger) - children are who this thread is for.........it is a health and safety warning.
And by the way kids............porn is not sex.
If children are watching porn these days they are viewing violence and sexual abuse and it is not what happens between loving people.
Please go to you tube and type...The Danger of Porn.

This is just another way of dividing people.

its poison for the soul and the marriage. It also goes against God. Its also fake and gross.

Its not necessary. Believe it or not there were people living happily on the planet before internet porn exhisted.

Like any self indulgent drug it will destroy your live. It degenerate the act of love and creation and turns it into self indulgent, animalistic, lust driven self degridation.

I dont do drugs, drink, or own a cell phone either though.... just how I have always been.

eat clean food and exercise. Dont watch TV all day. Unplug the internet. Find a creative outlet. GO OUTSIDE!

The world is what we make it. Our bodies are masterfully designed if you take care of them and actually use them. Fail to do so and you reap the results.

You want a higher IQ? Heathy body....healthy mind.

I agree it has negative implications.

However, like all drugs, used moderately it can be beneficial.

If one cannot control one's cravings and desires then yes, stay away from everything, including cell phones (but not the internet I guess).

Here is another reason why porn is not good for you

Mr. collins
1 year ago
Im 22 and can hardly achieve a full erection, and I completely blame PORN.

A comment on the page from the video I posted.
Like any drug the dose needs uping..........the images/videos have to be more and more extreme to achieve satisfaction.
Maybe this is why child porn happens??

Children, animals and adults are being abused just so you can get your rocks off..........but then it is not all fun is it....the shame is what is the most damaging.

Did you sign up for a sex robot yet?

choosing fake sex images over reality and emotional fulfillment with your wife? Sounds like the talk of a sodomite.

LOL! Not yet. Once they become ultra realistic maybe. (j/k) But I am sure it is true that people with no sex life or a dull one probably watch porn too. I wasn't talking about myself. I am not married either.
