Free Porn Video Websites Linked To Brain Issues, Erectile Dysfunction In Science Studies

Doing a free porn video search? Might want to think again since science is now telling us this particular activity may actually harm your brain and cause erectile dysfunction.

In a related report by the Inquisitr, John Gray, author of the 1992 book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, has managed to save many marriages over the years, and now he’s attacking both feminism and free internet porn because he believes both have had a devastating effect on American culture. Mythbusters‘ Adam Savage even goes so far as equating the internet and porn to the hate of women.

Dr. David Greenfield is a psychologist and director of the Center for Internet and Technology Addiction at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He claims that watching pornography can literally affect the way you think.

“When you’re in a sexual arousal process where you’re looking at pornography, you’re activating limbic parts of the brain,” he told VICE. “By doing so, the connection to prefrontal cortex — where decisions are weighed by values and morality — is cut off.”

Greenfield says that repeatedly viewing adult videos may not necessarily lead to addiction, but the science shows it can impair judgement.

“The communication that allows us to have a desire or a drive that isn’t mediated by the frontal cortex. The frontal cortex sends information back to the hippocampus and says ‘remember the last time you did this, this is not going to feel good,’ the ability for that circuit to occur is hampered,” Greenfield said according to the Christian Post. “This is why addicts do the same things over and over again. Because they don’t have access or full control over their judgment because their judgment systems are not fully operational.”

Previous studies have also shown “a significant negative association between reported pornography hours per week and gray matter volume.”

Can it get any worse? As previously reported by the Inquisitr, scientists even believe the advent of free porn video websites can be linked to erectile dysfunction even in healthy young men.

“The inability to achieve or maintain an erection is generally associated with aging, as the male body produces lower levels of testosterone, and is subject to diseases such as diabetes that can cause erectile dysfunction. But men under 30 have been reporting increased incidences of erectile dysfunction, and some scientists believe this disturbing trend is directly related to increased consumption of porn, thanks to its easy availability online.”

Thinking again about going through with that free porn video search?
