Watching too much porn shrinks men’s brains and makes them stupid – apparently
Heavy use of pornographic material can make men stupid, apparently.
New research suggests that men’s 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.
