Your Brain on Porn

Gary Wilson

Overview

In today's digital age, having access to porn has become as easy as clicking a button. A few years ago, pornography was reserved to specific video-renting spots and magazines – and was very difficult to access for teenagers. Nowadays, despite parental control and all the technology centered around children's safety, most teenagers over the age of 13 have watched porn regularly without any supervision or limits.

This must have had an impact on the way this generation perceives sex and interacts with it. For those who regularly consume porn - stimulating their brains with desensitizing content - there are psychological and physiological consequences. In this engaging, deep-dive of a study, expert physiologist and anatomist Gary Wilson asks the taboo questions and unravels the dark truths of the influence porn useage has on our brains and sex lives.

Did you know that watching porn could be linked to erectile dysfunction? Have you ever heard of the term porn tolerance? Discover how opioids and dopamine play a major role in how our brain reacts to porn and what makes it so addictive.
