Phoenix, I do see your point as a single person, My point was more towrds a person that has someone else in their life.

But now that I think about it, wouldn't Oxytocin be a sort of addiction that a person could become dependent upon for their everyday exsistance, or peice of mind?
You know the old saying, If it is too good to be true it most likely is. smile

Addiction is addiction is addiction, no mater what form it might be in.

Blessings

Hi Phoenix.

I get what you are saying about Oxytocin, but I would not go so far as to say that Porn might be good for some is a bit of a stretch.

Dont forget that addicts need the slightest provocation to use again, and someone saying hey I read that porn is good for me is all he needs to be back and using.

Fact is that the long term use of porn is BAD, the long term effects are BAD and there is honestly nothing good in any use of Porn.

Heal well
Martin

Hey,

Here's what I said: Low Oxytocin production due to abuse, sex or emotional, makes a heck of a lot of sense. Depression and low Oxytocin is 99% proven. If a person doesn't produce Oxytocin or enough of it, they will go and find a way to get it. Artificially (a med), there is no way for the brain to get it since artificial Oxytocin doesn't pass the blood-brain barrier. The brain tells the pituitary gland to produce it in certain circumstances. This little chemical controls happiness or well-being, period. Nicotine, sex (an orgasm), and ecstasy makes the brain require the pituitary to produce it. That's pure science.

OK

I am confused, The research I have done re Ocytocin refers mainly to the female's child Birthing process, and milk production.

There is no credible Scientific evidence of the effects on men that I could find, and the research is still in the early stages.

Remember that not everything on the web is true, so it is best to look at University research studies, and Doctors that specialize in the subject.

There is a good Study that talks about the Porn effect, read this one it is interesting. No where does this study talk about Oxytocin.

I will continue my research on the subject and get back to you.

I'M NOT FIGHTING Promise, Its just interesting and I like to know the facts for the men that we support. I dont want to get caught off guard when some guy tells me that it is OK to watch porn because he read this or that study.

If you have credible studies send me the links please, Id like to be forearmed.

Heal well
Martin

[Content removed, personal attack on another's opinion] There is more than enough porn in the world already and more being produced every day.
