Watching a lot of por.n can affect your brain, scientists reckon.
P0-rn can also bring out the same characteristics found in drug addicts – but sadly enthusiasts often get diminished pleasure from each ‘fix’.
The study also found that watching lots of p0-rn could lead to less activity in the left putamen, which usually responds to S£xual stimuli.
It’s apparently similar to the results found in c*caine addicts – although the research doesn’t conclude whether p0-n causes the brain changes, or if people with certain brain types just watch more p0-rn.
Research by Cambridge University last year found por.n enthusiasts responded to er0tic images the same way alcoholics respond to seeing pictures of drinks.
It’s due to the way the ventral striatum responds to stimulus, but in younger people could increase impulsiveness and risk-taking.
So there you have it. Like all good things, it’s best not to overdo it, so to speak.
