Do you think Porn affects our brains?

Lol if you watch pokemon porn or whatever you are thinking, then people are already fucked up, not because of watching porn but because some other problems they have in their had. There is nothing wrong with watching normal porn.

I remember reading this a few years ago. Got me to go on a 180 day no porn / nofap. And it was probably the best I’ve ever felt in terms of mental clarity.

I disagree. there is no normal porn now… there are so many sub-genres and fetishes… the imagination wants more, seeking the next new high from novelty. And novelty after novelry, it starts to create new desires that aren’t even close to what will actually turn us on in real life. It’s rather strange lol.

The whole point is that normal becomes less and less stimulating. A guy and a girl having normal sex in the beginning could make you a diamond. But, enough of that and soon you’re needing some fked up stuff to get the same effect.

Obviously this is all dependent on frequency.

If you get turned on by watching some sick shit, you already have that in yourself and you had it before you started watching that porn. If you didn’t then you wouldn’t be turned on by that. Simple as that

IMO 100% yes, it depends on what’s most important to you though. This is a subject that I have experimented with personally a lot (not just porn)

In my experience (just like video games, tv shows, etc) it is the simplest way of dopamine release. Do it enough times and your reptilian body/mind will automatically lean towards porn (even if you don’t masturbate) as it’s the easiest way of a high dopamine release.

You can do dopamine releasing things all day (unlike being productive), have you noticed how people watch Netflix or play games all day but can’t be productive? You only have so much willpower to be properly productive, which probably doesn’t release dopamine as quick and as easy as porn, games or shows. You can do those things all day, but you can’t work all day in the same manner, especially if you have porn on your mind.

Eventually this will then turn into a habit or something you’re always looking forward to - At this stage being productive starts using up much more of the limited willpower you have for the day, you may start being less productive, questioning work and how you can do less (not in a good way), etc…

Masturbating to porn and masturbating on its own are also different topics.

I rushed this on my phone as I’m on the road, please excuse any typos or sentences that my not make sense :face_with_monocle:

I red some article on my local news portal (they normally only wrote about retarded stuff so more people will click on it) Like 70+ years ago, there was some guy that was fucking cow or goat in his village (it wasn’t his cow), I think it was India. So he got killed by the cow owner one day when he saw him doing it. So where did he saw that? Watching porn on porntube or something? I don’t think so, he was already fucked up in his head

Fapping = Feels awesome for 5 seconds
Sex = You feel like a million bucks for the coming 24 hours

+1 for sex

I’d wager those occurrences are far more rare compared to those who have wild fetishes that actually developed from internet pornography.
