Quote:
In response to Philip Zimbardo's "The Demise of Guys?" TED talk, Gary Wilson asks whether our brains evolved to handle the hyperstimulation of today's Internet enticements. He also discusses the disturbing symptoms showing up in some heavy Internet users, the surprising reversal of those symptoms, and the science behind these 21st century phenomena.






More About Gary Wilson

Gary is host of www.yourbrainonporn.com The site arose in response to a growing demand for solid scientific information by heavy Internet erotica users experiencing perplexing, unexpected effects: escalation to more extreme material, concentration difficulties, sexual performance problems, radical changes in sexual tastes, social anxiety, irritability, inability to stop, and obsessive-compulsive symptoms.

As a physiology teacher with a particular interest in the latest neuroscience discoveries, Gary was aware that their symptoms might be the result of addiction-related brain changes. Applying the website's concepts of brain plasticity, many former users have braved withdrawal, reversed their symptoms and restored normal sexual responsiveness.

The site has been linked to from hundreds of threads in forums from over thirty countries, with posts numbering in the thousands. Gary blogs for "Psychology Today" and "The Good Men Project" on the extreme plasticity of adolescent brains, the evolutionary context for today's flood of novel cyber "mates," and the neurochemical reasons why superstimulating Internet delivery has unexpected effects on the brain.

I know you were trying to surprise him, but in the future please put a NSFW on posts like these lol. Cool

In all fairness, you can definitely become addicted to internet porn, and if you do you will lose interest in normal stuff and develop fetishes. It becomes just like any other addiction in that you start to develop a tolerance and therefor requires progressively heavier usages and stimulation to become effective.

My gf and I watch porn together, she loves it.

And I have absolutely NO e.d. (To which I also attribute my regimen of L-Arginine supplements, I admit.)

Blurred, faceless photos available on request. Very Happy

Hahahaha no need for photos Rumpl!!!

Like nutroll said above, it depends on the situation.
I don't think that everything in the video I posted is 100%
on point, I just found it interesting.

(Rumps and nuts! hahaha)

I have a love/hate relationship with porn.
I think it was more of a problem when I was younger
than it is now.

Very Happy
Allow me to play amateur self-psychoanalyst for a minute.... I don't think my own relationship with porn is particularly "unhealthy" (he said, confidently, in a totally unschooled sort of way.)

I only make this claim because (a) I never sit for hours and just vapidly sift through it. (b) When I do watch, I invariably wind up watching videos with women in them that are similar to my current GF, and (c) once I get aroused, I'm more likely to turn it off, go somewhere away from the PC and think about an actual sexual encounter from my past. And fantasize about that (I'm also fortunate in that I have a whole Rolodex of incidents where I was offered some action, and passed on it.... invariably regretting years later, but... I do have a sizable catalog of those upon which to call.)

I guess you could say I use it for mental cannon fodder. The GF lives fairly far away right now, and when we get together, we sometimes will watch together. There are some personal reasons for that, into which I will not delve (she might be reading this.) Wink

only results. Cool
