Default Watching porn is too much for one part of your brain

Quote:
While one part of the body turns decidedly on when you settle down for a night of hot porn, new research indicates that part of your brain shuts completely off. Viewing erotic movies apparently subdues the section of the brain that processes visual stimuli. This is surprising since watching movies typically sends blood flow to this part of the brain. "Not so when the movies are explicit," reports LiveScience. "Instead, the brain seems to shunt blood." Now we're no neuroscientists, but we think we have a good guess where all that blood goes.
The libertarians aren't going to like this, because it'll give us another reason to make porn illegal (as if it being obscene wasn't enough), but what do I care.

The link worked for me..

As one that has struggled with porn addiction, this does make sense to me. I've gone into this sort of fugue state while watching porn.

One of the reasons anti-porn statutes are torn down as against free speech is that it is hard to define.

Now we will have a scientific definition, nya ha ha!
