Porn addiction is nothing new among our teens. The availability of pornographic and explicit contents in the internet makes it very easy for them to look for contents that should only be viewed by adults. According to some experts, there are certain negative impacts once a teenager gets too addicted to pornographic contents:
1 Dr. Mark Kastelmen, who wrote the book, “The Drugs of the Millennium” labels porn as visual crack cocaine or visual drugs. The part of our brain gets affected the most by porn addiction is the pre-frontal cortex (PFC) that makes it difficult for someone to make plan, control lust and emotion, and make decision as it is the brain’s executive function to control impulses.
2 Dr. Donald Hilton, Jr., a brain surgeon from the U.S., stated that pornographic consumption is really a disease, as it alters the brain structure and function. In other words, it deteriorates our brain. A physiological change can even be observed when someone views pornographic images. If drug is capable of ruining the function of three parts of our brain, excessive consumption of pornographic content has the potential to ruin five parts of our brain. This is indeed fatal.
