What's The Relationship Between The Brain & Porn?
Do you understand the relationship between porn and the effect it has on your brain?

Every time one masturbates and gets sexually aroused they release dopamine which triggers desireable feelings. Orgasm releases dopamine in the brain & one can become just as addicted to porn as you can be to drugs. And similar to drug use, the addiction can intensify. The reward networks grow stronger each time the porn addict indulges with his/her addiction to porn.

Please watch the video below that talks about the "demise of men" as it relates to this topic.

It can be argued that porn may be "bad" for some people. All addictions are not healthy for obvious reasons so be sure to take action and get help if you suspect or recognize that you or someone you know may be an addict. Your brain needs to have the proper amount of stimulation on all levels and any sign of addiction should have you seeking the help you need or taking control of your activities. Pornography will never replace the physical presence of a lover or a wonderful loving partner for those of you in exclusive relationships.

We welcome any questions that you have about this topic and would love to hear your thoughts about this matter in the comments section below.
