Is there an addictive chemical in porn? No, but it releases the neurotransmitters that get people hooked on Meth, Cocaine, and Heroine.

So it's not like a drug addiction but it is? Contradiction much?

I'm pretty sure I'd be even more frustrated going without sex for 6 months after having had it for > 10 years. I'm not a sex addict.

RE: The possible negative effects of Pornography
it has it similarities and it has its differences. cocaine would obviously release a lot more dopamine than pornography. likewise , heroine would obviously release a lot more endorphins and be more addictive than porn. BUT, they work on the same receptors.

Are you certain your opinions on pornography and sex in general are not colored by your catholic indoctrination? I sense great guilt in you, my son. Chill. Masturbate. Just don't take it so seriously.

RE: The possible negative effects of Pornography
Quote:Buckyball: actually all these crap assertions without a shred of evidence presented should be in the children's humor section. Wicked Clown, spam is forbidden on TTA. Starting 17 threads in 5 days is spam. Go get a fucking psychiatrist, and keep your pathetic psychotic crap to yourself.

By the way buckyball, I read the rules. it says that spam is when you post more than one thread on the same topic. This thread is not spam because there is no other thread that I started about the alleged negative effects of pornography.

funny you equate psychosis with me listing the alleged negative effects of pornography on certain people.

also one of the reasons why I didn't cite a bunch of sources for the OP is because it is common knowledge to anyone who has done a little bit of research on the possible negative effects of excessive pornography usage.

since your statements were incorrect , perhaps they were worthy more for the children's humour section then what I said.

Drugs such as cocaine target the dopaminergic system to release great amounts of dopamine which results in experiencing a “high,” often leading to addiction. A number of studies have implicated dopamine in either the anticipation or the direct experience of pleasure. Depending on the brain area, dopamine can be released either prior to or during the moments of heightened pleasure. When released, dopamine strengthens and reinforces the new connections that are being made in the brain while an activity is undertaken. This in turn acts to encourage the individual to repeat the activity again so they can feel that pleasure once more.

How is this relevant to pornography? As the images are displayed on the screen, an arousal takes place and the dopaminergic system is triggered just like it would be by drugs such as cocaine. The newly formed connections in the brain from watching pornographic images become greatly reinforced by the massive amounts of dopamine being released.

Rather than going into short term memory, where these images can be forgotten after the screen is turned off, the dopamine reinforcement ensures they’re moved into the long-term memory stores where they can be stuck in replay mode in the person’s mind.

....Since the experience is an arousing one, dopamine release results in very strong reinforcement of those new connections. Now that the scenes are in long-term memory, two consequences take place: 1) since the very same system stimulated by cocaine is being triggered by pornography, addiction is developed; and 2) the man will often attempt to create his own re-enactments with a wife or partner

After such a disappointment in the actual experience due to the unrealistic fantasy-based expectations, the brain not only refrains from releasing dopamine; it actually dips below baseline levels. It goes into a depression response that results in disappointment, dissatisfaction, and unhappiness in the marriage since the wife is “not up to what he expected”. Despite the efforts by many women to “spice things up” and even subject themselves to the demeaning acts that have been artificially downloaded into their husbands’ brains, the pornography-addicted husbands will only enjoy themselves for a very short while before losing interest. Meanwhile, the wife feels unattractive and emotionally abandoned despite her best efforts, not knowing that she couldn’t compete with the dopamine buzz offered by pornography."

This sounds great and all, but unless you can give me a proper scientific study that says just that I don't really care.

Ah! So science has proved that porn is not addictive...........the researchers never missed a beat!

I wonder who funded that study.
