“Important” Study of Porn found to be inconclusive: Researchers say they need to study more porn

“Study.”

A new study has established a connection between watching pornography and diminished brain activity, but researchers are unable to exactly pinpoint what it is what causes the diminished brain activity. It may be the porn itself, or it may be a number of other factors.

The German study claims to have “the first evidence for a link between pornography consumption and reductions in brain size and brain activity in response to sexual stimuli.”

Researchers asked men how often they watched porn, and then asked them to watch porn while they monitored their brain activity. Men who said they watched more porn had a diminished function in areas of their brain that deal with motivation to do things. In other words: people that watch a lot of porn are lazy.

Since scientists are unaware if watching porn declines brain activity, or if it is a number of other factors, more research needs to be done. Those researchers get to study more porn. Poor guys.
