New Porn Study Shocks Former Editor of Soft-Porn Magazine

By Nancy Pearcey • October 2, 2013, 10:55 AM

Martin Daubney, formerly editor of Loaded, discusses in the Daily Mail (U.K.) a study he conducted with Dr. Valerie Voon of Cambridge University. Daubney explains that their study focused on . . .

. . . a particular brain region called the ventral striatum -- the "reward centre" -- where our sense of pleasure is produced. This is one of the areas where an addict will show a heightened response to visual representations of their addiction -- whether it's a syringe or a bottle of vodka.

What we discovered was a revelation. When shown porn, the reward centre of normal volunteers barely reacted, but that of the compulsive porn users lit up like a Christmas tree. 

The compulsive porn users' brains showed clear parallels with those with substance addictions.

Everybody on the project was astounded. . . .

If porn does have the insidious power to be addictive, then letting our children consume it freely via the internet is like leaving heroin lying around the house, or handing out vodka at the school gates.

And this toxic effect is filtering down directly into young girls' lives.

The most shocking testament came from Professor Gail Dines. Regarded as the world's leading anti-pornography campaigner, she has interviewed thousands of men and women about sex and pornography.

"When you interview young women about their experiences of sex, you see an increased level of violence: rough, violent sex," she says.

"That is directly because of porn, as young boys are getting their sexual cues from men in porn who are acting as if they're sexual psychopaths. Pornography is sexually traumatising an entire generation of boys."
