The Science Behind Porn: How it alters the brain, affecting normativity

Porn is like a dangerous drug that can alter the mind. Sexually explicit material (SEM) triggers mirror neurons in the (male) brain. Psychologist William M. Struthers believes it affects the brain in a bad way.

The unfortunate reality is that when he acts out (often by masturbating), this leads to hormonal and neurological consequences, which are designed to bind him to the object he is focusing on,” Dr. Struthers said.

Mirror Neurons: Monkey see, monkey do

The mirror neurons were called “monkey see, monkey do” (first discovered in monkeys). It constitutes how we neurologically learn by observing (or watching) others.

Mirror neurons are circuits in the frontal and parietal lobes. It has a motor system that correlates to the “planning out of a behavior.”

Like any other addiction or sinful habit, porn gives satisfaction and reward. The surge of dopamine makes us feel good—we want more. Overstimulation desensitizes and leads to the following:

Concentration problems
Depression
Erectile dysfunction
Low motivation
Negative self-perceptions
Social anxiety

3 Ways Satan uses porn to destroy

1. Porn destroys the nuclear family

Satan seeks to destroy a healthy nuclear family. He uses porn as a subtle tool because it teaches the brain to objectify women (or men) and look at them sinfully.

Satan pushes “sex & equality” to disrupt society

Today, far-left liberals fight for all sorts of “sexual rights.” These include pushing to legalizing prostitution, polyamory, pedophilia, and incest—some call “individual rights.”

All these contribute to the outcome of normativity. With the recent pandemic, familiarity bred contempt, marriages tumbled, and many turned to porn. The effect is a silent rebellion in a crazy woke society.

2. Porn loosens the bond between husband and wife

A husband who watches porn videos is drawn to another woman, not his wife. Arguably, most men by nature are polygamous. Nonetheless, it’s a “sinful nature.” The reason men need self-control, which is a fruit of the spirit.

Porn hijacks biological the response

Pornography enslaves the viewer to mental images. “It hijacks the biological response intended to bond a man to his wife, inevitably loosening that bond,” Dr. Struthers said.

God designed men to enjoy sex with his wife, but it becomes adultery when replaced by another person. Ultimately, our love for God and of our spouse should conquer porn addiction.

3. Porn causes Compulsive Sexual Behavior

A 2014 study shows an association between porn and HIV in Southern India. The country leads in “porn consumption” on smartphones in 2019. India ranked third in HIV infections globally in 2020.

Western influence

In the USA, fornication is prevalent. Sex is introduced nearly in every Hollywood, cable, and Netflix movie with teen audiences.

Satan no longer hides in music as well—evident in J Lo and Cardi B’s recent performance. The point is, heightened sexual behavior is evidently linked to prolific sexual explicit materials (SEM).

Increased HIV infection

A study in 2013 of gay-oriented SEM among “men having sex with men” (MSM) discouraged HIV risk behavior. The gay videos promoted “protected sex.” However, the habit also encouraged compulsive sexual behavior (CSB) that increased the risk of HIV.

In short, whether it’s gay or heterosexual sex video, porn heightens sexual urges that progress to polygamy, adultery, or sodomy. The result is a decadent society.

Road to Freedom: Feed your mind with God’s words

Let your ‘mirror neurons’ dwell in love (faithfulness to spouse) and decency (respect for the human anatomy). If the mind is not filled daily with God’s words, Satan drives the sinful nature.

Galatians 6:7
“… whatever a man sows, he reaps.

Ephesians 5:3
Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people.

Romans 12:1
… present your bodies as a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
