Watching porn associated with male brain shrinkage
Conclusion This small structural and functional brain study indicates there might be a correlation between more hours of porn viewed a week and smaller and less active areas of the brain associated with reward and sexual stimulation in men.

(Canadian Association for Neuroscience) Research presented today by Jonathan Britt, McGill University, helps to better understand how reward signals, such as those produced by addictive drugs, travel through the brain and modify brain circuits.
