Does Watching Porn Make People's Brains Smaller? (Study Suggests So)

Ever wondered what your brain is doing while you're watching adult movies? Well, apparently, it's getting smaller. A recent study came to the conclusion that men who watched a lot of pornography have less volume and activity in parts of their brain that are linked to rewards and motivation.

Again, correlation not causation. It could be that people with smaller minds are more likely to want to watch porn.

Side: No

I doubt that anything shrinks when men are watching porn.

Side: No

Did you mean to make that reference or....? :D

Side: No

Yes I did mean to make that reference lol.

Side: No

While it's quite easy to say that such activity would not be particularly stimulating intellectually...

Exactly what mechanism could result in the death/shrinking of neurons as a result of pornography?

I can see the activity decrease at least; abnormally frequent sexual gratification would likely result in downregulation of active sites for the endorphins to bind to- but actually reducing the size of those areas of the brain?

I don't buy it.

Side: No

A recent study came to the conclusion that men who watched a lot of pornography have less volume and activity in parts of their brain that are linked to rewards and motivation.

Would this not potentially imply that these people are less likely to have addictive personalities?

If that is statistically true, okay. But that seems unrealistic.

Also, did this study only cover men?

Side: No

Watching pornography is not going to make someone's brain smaller.

Side: No
