TED Talk Highlights Brain Changes that Stem from Porn

THE BAD NEWS: Porn alters the brain in ways that inhibit arousal and detract from “in person” sex, creating an epidemic of erectile dysfunction

THE GOOD NEWS: When you stop porn use, your brain can (over time) heal itself

Check out this fascinating TEDx lecture by Gary Wilson. It’s well put together, and really needs no introduction.

Be forewarned: some people who read this site are easily triggered to sexual temptation, and very sensitive to the materials I put on here. So know that there is a brief picture of women in bikinis at one point in the lecture.

But I hope that won’t keep you from watching. It’s very thought-provoking, and I hope that every person who has access to the internet watches this video.

 

Let me know what you think in the comments. 🙂

  1. Fantastic science and real life information, practical for implementation. I will forward this article and TED talk to many colleagues and friends. What a sad way to become enslaved–addiction is a serious deception, stealing life instead of enhancing it.

    1. Agreed Kathy. This talk was given a couple years ago now, and it deals pretty helpfully about this issue from a pragmatic and non-religious perspective. I believe that what this guy is talking about is becoming a more common perspective in our society — the problems with porn is not just something that religious people are pointing out.

  2. Very interesting and thought provoking information. I am concerned why the audience was laughing throughout the presentation. I did not think his information was humorous. They stopped laughing once he started talking about the suffering that porn does to individuals. Porn hurts and that is not funny to me.

    1. Yeah who knows what was going on in peoples’ minds at the start. But it did seems like people sobered up a bit … it’s a good presentation, especially given the context

  3. Fantastic! At last hardcore scientific evidence of what we (women) have always intuitively known. Porn messes with your head and relationships. Thanks ever so much!
