P0rn: Poison For the Brain?

#1
Now, I know that NOBODY around here uses p0rn (*cough*)! This is a really interesting presentation on how the human (esp. male) brain responds to it, including evolutionary imperatives, and changes in neurochemistry. Poison or not poison, I thought it really interesting. Apparently viewing it tells your brain, "Man, you have hit the evolutionary jackpot!" and your sexual impulses respond accordingly...

I don't look at porn. I can also spell it correctly.

And you're a secret homo.

I make a habit of spelling it in a less offensive form when I'm posting from certain venues.

I've mentioned before that I have a friend who's a cognitive neuropsychologist. Stuff like this--how our brain reacts to various stimuli, the evolutionary imperatives that make it so, our neurochemical responses, etc--fascinates me.

Porn is not a swear word it's a abbreviation of pornography also not a bad word!

I'm currently posting from a place where who knows what someone might find offensive. I once got an interview without coffee because someone went to a manager saying I was "racist" after hearing me make a generic comment to a friend that Congress was screwed up (generic in that I made no reference to party, nor to any individual congressman, just stating Congress was dysfunctional). So yeah, I try to spell "controversial" words in less "controversial" ways. Everybody wants to find a reason to get offended and go whining to the boss these days.

Yes porn affects the brain IMMENSELY.

I owe my entire repetoire of IT skills, a small command of the German language , and a smattering of Japanese (the word bukkake but Im working on others) all to porn.... and in my youth searching and foraging in hedges and woodland was an ability finely honed in the quest for mouldy paper.....

I have to admit that I frown on porn; usually because I'm concentrating.

Interesting article and good post, despite the usual Arrse meandering.

I don't think Porn is considered poison to most meat eating men,and it can't be negative in the Brain if it involves the same Physical process as reproduction, guess its just easier to make the bald man cry than using memory alone, sometimes easier than pleasing the miss's, I think more and more women are warming to it, but it was the spawn of the devil as I was growing up.

Is this the old argument about sex and violence on tv, internet etc affecting behaviour? It depends on the person watching it surely, we are all different so some will enjoy, some will be disguated, some will emulate it and so on. It takes all sorts to make a liquorice.

Yes but access to it on tinternet and smart phones now means that yonger folk (7 to 16) see all of the normal deranged stuff and think its normal.

Even I have noticed how these days the "main" stream has change to include some nasty "pretend" situations that were 10 years ago taboo, Forced sex, slapping and painfull sex.

These younger kids think this is the "Norm" for their relationships as well.

If he did he would almost certainly be offended by your inappropriate use of the word 'Jesus'. That may well result in him driving around to your house in his pick up truck and murdering your entire family (and any neighbours) with his AK47 and hunting knife.
