watchingWatching movies is hot pleasure for most men. You ‘re a fan too ? You’d better think again. A study found that men who often witnessed sexual scenes appeared to have a smaller cortex, whereas the gray parts that contribute to determine the level of intelligence.

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Germany, recruited 64 men aged 21 to 45 years. The men have different levels of fondness towards pornography. Previously, participants were not informed that the study was conducted to measure the effects of pornography on the brain. That they know, it’s just a measurement of MRI studies.

The questionnaire then given to the participants. They were asked to describe how much porn they watch. Afterwards, the participants were shown pornographic sexual content of the site, as well as images of people who are exercising. While watching these pictures, scientists conducted MRI scans on the brains of participants. How did it go ?

” Our findings indicate that participants who often enjoy pornography have a gray part ( cortex ) that are smaller on the right side of the brain, ” said study author.

Furthermore, when things of a sexual nature is shown, the MRI showed that the male part of the brain that regulate motivation decreased.

Researchers do not yet know exactly how the causal relationship between pornography and conditions of the cortex of the brain. They have not been able to ascertain whether pornography causes the brain to shrink, or men with smaller cortex does tend liked pornography. Therefore, further studies are still needed.

“Further studies should investigate how long-term effects of pornography, or, with the display of pornography on the naive participants then investigate its influence from time to time,” the research team said, as quoted by ABC Australia.
