Heavy use of pornographic material can make men stupid, apparently.
New research suggests that mens brains shrink as a result of watching too much adult material.
German researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development found that men who watch a lot of porn tend to have smaller striatum.
The stratum is a region of the brain concerned with rewards and motivation so the researchers believe watching porn damages their brain and makes them lazy.
There is a chicken and egg debate regarding these findings as to which came first, the smaller brains or the heavy usage of porn.
One conclusion is that less intelligent men love pornography.
Last year, a survey by the University of East London reported that 97% of boys and 80% of girls between the ages of 16 and 20 have watched porn.
Does anyone make think it makes people smarter?
haha. love it. :)
It makes one head bigger.
It amuses me how folks when it suits them point to larger brain size in some humans or mammals as indicative of likely advanced capabilities ...
When its pointed out the markedly smaller sized brains of tropical Africans
Or some Amerindians or jungle Asians and Aboriginals
Then its not important....
It kills me...
Usual refrain.....Einstein had a tiny brain...etc
It isn’t how big it is, it’s how you use it. (Your brain, that is.)
Porn makes what smaller? I don’t believe what this....uh....what is this article about again?
Average female brain is quite a bit smaller than the average male brain.
Satan’s second best trick, after convincing the world he didn’t exist, was getting it to call porn “adult entertainment”.
His third-best was bubble packaging.
> Porn makes what smaller? I dont believe what
this....uh....what is this article about again?
Fourth best is whatever that clear plastic packaging is made of. That stuff is nearly indestructible, suitable for body armor, and has led to more frustration than all the pornos put together.
This article sounds like man-hating feminist bull to me.
Personally, I don’t believe watching porn can... uh...
oh... what was I saying?
OT Slings..but just heard on TV that results of an extensive study prove cat lovers are smarter than dog lovers. LOL
