How is Pornography Connected?

"Pornography is the jet fuel for sex trafficking."

WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?

When you view pornography, the brain is flooded with dopamine,

a pleasure chemical that activates the reward pathway in the brain

and reinforces your brain to want to return to that activity. 

According to Cambridge University, "Brains addicted to pornography light up in brain scans just like the cocaine addict's brain."

SO WHAT?

You become hooked because your brain is telling you it wants

more and while watching it, a new brain pathway is being formed. 

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

That means that pornography literally changes your brain. 

"Viewing porn over time, causes your brain to form new neuropathways.

The more you view it, the stronger those pathways become.

 

That flood of dopamine in your brain overloads your receptors and eventually, you need harder stuff and more of it to get the same high. This is the exact same experience heroin addicts have when they talk about chasing the first high,"

-Chris Simon, a certified sex addiction therapist

 

Mindblowing Facts: A teen’s brain releases up to four times the amount of dopamine as an adult so a teen is more likely to become addicted.

 

No wonder the Porn Industry works so hard trying to trick teens into viewing pornography! They want them to become hooked and life-long customers (and why they are making BILLIONS of dollars every year).
