Using Pornography and Negative Brain Effects: part Two

Compulsively masturbating to pornography is a very unhealthy thing to do.
Leaving aside chakras and honor for a moment, please read up on the research.

Part one is here: Brain Changes and Pornography part One

(Previous Articles on relationships and personal effects are HERE and HERE. More Here.)

Snip from lengthy article part two:

It seems that frontal lobe damage, caused by long-term porn addiction and the compulsive masturbation that accompanies it, will give rise to a constellation of behaviors called “frontal lobe syndrome”. These include four main behavior patterns:  (1) Impulsive behavior with little regard to consequences. (2) Compulsive behavior, often leading to total loss of control. (3) Emotionally labile behavior,i.e., sudden and unpredictable mood swings. (4) Impaired judgment, leading to disastrous decision making.
All these conditions, it is now clear, are caused by frontal lobe damage. Though they can be produced instantaneously by a car crash or other serious trauma to the brain, they can also occur as a gradual process by the habit of compulsive masturbation to pornography over a long period of time. “Nemo repente fuit turpissimus,” the Roman satirist Juvenal noted long ago. “No one became extremely wicked all at once.” It happens by slow degrees, step by painful step. Sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character, and you reap a destiny. Whoever said that was certainly on to something.
Dr. Victor Cline, possibly the world’s foremost expert on sex addiction, has thiv15s to say on pornography and compulsive masturbation in his classic essay Pornography’s Effects on Adult and Child:

That long-term pornography use, accompanied by compulsive masturbation, actually causes structural changes in the brain is now beyond dispute. Whether this amounts to “brain damage” in the classic sense is a contentious issue and will be hotly denied by the Masturbation Lobby and all those who believe, erroneously, that masturbation is a stress reliever and a cure for depression. Porn addiction and its invariable accompaniment, compulsive masturbation, are in fact stress increasers. They are often found as major symptoms in obsessive-compulsive disorders. Far from relieving depression, they intensify it. Indeed, they are all too often theunderlying cause of the depression in that they generate a huge loss of self-esteem. These are truisms, patently obvious to all except the merchants of lies.
