Your brain on porn - The scary effects of porn addiction
Doctor Scott Health, Jan 24, 2016
Your Brain on Porn is the research by Gary Wilson that shows the effects of porn addiction... which is pretty darn scary.
Scientists in the field of neuroscience and brain imaging are showing in study after study that high speed internet porn can change the brain just like drug addiction. This wreaks havoc on the reward/pleasure system in the brain resulting in devastating effects.
Dopamine acts as the neurotransmitter that initiates the drive and motivation to seek a reward such as sex. When overstimulated by hardcore drugs such as heroine or methamphetamine, the dopamine system is overloaded. The same occurs with chronic pornography viewing. Being exposed to multiple, highly attractive, virtual partners and a dizzying variety of novelty, your brain dumps so much dopamine into your system that it signals a molecule called deltafosb to be released. Deltafosb begins rewiring the brain to endlessly crave more and more of this digital video erotica.
Addiction Related Brain Changes
4. Dysfunctional stress circuits
Internet video porn consumption has also been linked to the following:
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Premature ejaculation (PE) (lasting too short)
- Delayed ejaculation (lasting too long)
- Decreased libido or sex drive
- Loss of intimacy with sexual partners (because you're inside your head with images of porn to maintain erection or reach climax)
- Loss of interest and pleasure in things you once found interesting and pleasurable
- Social anxiety/lack of confidence
- Unrealistic sex expectations
- Unrealistic sexual partner (body image) expectations
