Porn Apparently Makes You Stupid!

A recent study in Germany has suggested that watching porn may well shrink men’s brains.

The study, conducted by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development found that users of porn generally have a smaller striatum.

Reward and Motivation

As a man who works in the escort industry, and not a brain surgeon, I had to look up what the striatum was. Apparently it is the section of the brain that processes rewards and motivation.

Men who watch porn also seem to have less grey matter, making their brains smaller than those who don’t watch it.

The striatum also seems to be less active for men who view a lot of sexual images.

The study consisted of 64 men aged between 21 to 45. They were asked about their porn habits, and their brains were monitored to see how they reacted to pornographic images.

Now there does seem to be a bit of confusion over the results. In a question reminiscent of the old ‘chicken and the egg’ debate, no-one is quite sure whether porn is shrinking the striatum, or if men with smaller striatum’s have a natural leaning towards porn.

Also, a study of 64 people is hardly large scale. Still, it does seem to be pointing in a direction which says watching porn can actually make you more stupid!

Only A Start

The brain is such is an interesting thing. We are only just starting to touch the surface of what is inside our own heads, but we are able to send men to the moon.

There is no doubt in my mind that people will be doing further research on this subject. We await the results with a real interest.

The question remains however, does looking at the beautiful Swansea escorts on the pages of Escort Wales make someone daft? Forgive me for having a simplistic approach, but I’m sure it actually makes them more intelligent. Have you seen how hot these girls are. Our users have definitely come to the right place!

And to quote the German report, isn’t that what reward and motivation are all about?
