What You Should Know About the Impact of Modern Internet Porn

By June 21, 2017 No Comments

A number of years ago we interviewed a sex therapist on stage on Sunday and someone asked the question “is porn ok for couples to use?”

“Yes” the sex therapist said, “but I suggest only using amateur porn [as opposed to commercial]”

I often wondered why she said that.  I agree that sexual images are not by definition moral issues and Christianity has a fairly long tradition of sexually explicit imagery from the bible (if you want to see what I’m talking about read Song of Songs and just ask yourself what those images are referring to).

At first I thought she was making this distinction because amateur had less chance of the participants being coerced.  But after reading Your Brain on Porn, I’m starting to change my mind.

It seems that the modern iteration of pornography, specifically streamed from the internet, is changing our brains in really troubling ways.

So I’m not going to discuss the moral implications of pornography usage (that’s a pretty complex topic), but I am very troubled over the impact porn can have on our brains.
