What they say: Pornography is damaging peoples' health.

Translation: Pornography threatens the growth of capitalism because we don't want to admit that young people have decided it is not worth the financial time and energy to buy a house and get married and have kids and buy their worthless faces food and water and clothes, so it's cheaper and easier to pull down your pants and do a Pornhub search for Sarah Palin's dominant mama grizzly feet, as Bristol and Trick and Tarp and Torgo and the entire city of Wasilla laughs at me, for being a pathetic worm.

That is a very thin article. Almost nothing to it. I suspect the study is b******* as well

Good thing the majority of my porn addiction was DVD and magazine-based.

"Bullshiat" is perhaps a strong word.  It's as case study... that's not the same thing at all as what most people have been taught to think of when the word "study" comes up.  A case study is a single data point, or a body of data obtained from a single test subject without worrying too much about whether that subject is representative of a broader set of potential subjects -- it's not science nor is it supposed to be science, really.

What it is is basically the invisible step that comes before "ask a question" in the classical scientific method (which is itself either one or two steps before "hypothesis" depending whether you make the literature review its own step or not).  A case study is basically an exercise in determining if maybe there's a question worth asking in the first place.

They're not necessarily of zero value, you just have to be conscious of what you're actually reading, as with any science-related literature.  Reading the instructions for how to put the batteries in a remote won't teach you how to program your DVR to automatically search for shows by showrunner and organize them in order of potential golden globe awards, but you're also never going to get to that part if you don't work out how to turn the TV on first.  So it is with this... we'll never have an interesting study on porn and brain chemistry unless someone manages to stumble across something potentially interesting about porn and brain chemistry to inquire into first.

// Though... yeah, the probability of this being something that can be applied to the general public is... low.

The brain scans of ONE PERSON (who totally isn't just some S&M freak) showed activation in a particular part of the brain responsible for pain(etc)... so somehow this translates to porn will harm you.

Now you don't have to read the mini "article" at all.

Next Week at the DailyMail.co.uk, we have an exclusive interview with Cannabevets, whose personal study of one shall also be considered settled science.

I know I've saved thousands of dollars watching porn.

Daily Fail: because this one guy one time got a headache.

Until they do a double-blind study comparing damage from internet porn against damage from spousal screeching I will remain skeptical.

Pornography may be bad for you because  it can rewire the way your brain enjoys sex.
Sex between real people is infinitely better, so if you have that, don't mess around with surrogates that may affect the real thing.

Just because you are getting laid doesn't mean you shouldn't jerk off. Wtf is wrong with you?

It is also why the 12 year olds on reddit are obsessed with anal sex and choking videos before they have seen their first real-life nipple.

Wouldn't say I'm addicked. Just pleasurably amused.

I suspect I'm Low T, and even so I have to fight angry random boners with my fists.

Barely a paragraph that some guy claims his head hurt watching porn. Maybe he was having a stroke >.>

I get headaches from watching porn.  It may be due that I like to watch it on my phone.  And not in full screen.

This just in: Porn causes an increase in dopamine levels in the brain that leads to increased levels of stimulation and self satisfaction and more positive life outcomes. Porn is therefore healthy and encouraged.

See I can make up bullsh*t studies too.

The Daily Mail has been pressing for the British government to impose tough controls on online porn, apparently so that you have to go back to buying their rag to see tits.

As this was published by the Daily Mail, I can definitively state that there is no porn in the Internet.
