    The study does not specify the exact amount of exposure required for the behaviour to be considered an addiction. It does, however, talk about the effects of habitual behaviour on neuronal pathways. This means that regular or repeated consumption of pornography is enough to rewire your brain, even if you are not addicted, per se.

    And that is not difficult to believe when you listen to, or observe, people. I mean, just look at some of the nauseating posts in this thread. People being totally vulgar and thinking it's the most normal thing in the world.

    In any case, many of the points I brought up have nothing to do with addiction, but with pornography itself; and, no amount of regulation will solve those issues. The "consenting adult" argument is a tired cliché. People consent to all kinds of unhealthy behaviour. This planet is "the mental institution of the universe," after all.

    Habitual behavior exists in so many ways not just porn, and yes it affects the brain! This article is laughable.

    Exactly. I'm still yet to see them start advising against masturbation and tell you that doing such naughty activities can cause infertility in men and make them go to hell.

    Some behaviours affect people in a healthy way and some others in an unhealthy way. That's the whole point.

    This article is not laughable. Many such articles are out there. They are relaying what those who study the topic are saying.

    Most people are already there and they don't even realize it.

    Y'all shall abstain from sex, for sex makes straight men gay and gay men africans.
    Amen.

    Oh my god! Someone had the idea to make a thread about pornography 10 years before I did! And here I thought I was controversial!

    Although mine was mostly geared towards getting women to admit they watch porn lol, so yeah thread sucks! Go post in mine -.-

    No way! Women should never watch porn, because women are exploited in porn but the men actors oh never. How can you be a self respecting feminist and watch it :) the only exception is lesbian porn, this seems ok and there is much less exploitation there lol

    Enjoy your porn.

    Personally, I prefer the real deal; and only under specific conditions.

    The rest of you can use each other like chiclets to chew and spit out, if that's what makes you happy.

    And yeah...I'd rather be a nun than the sex toy of some pathetic loser who is not mature enough to commit to a real relationship.

    Who said only women are exploited by pornography? Anyone who willingly takes part in creating, sharing, selling, or consuming pornography is, both, exploiting and being exploited.
