Cultural Quote #246: Porn And The Brain

And I actually did a study recently on this. We put people in the scanner and we looked at their brain structure and associated this brain structure with the amount of pornography they consumed. Basically, we found in our study that the gray matter in the reward center is generally smaller in those people who watch more porn.
