Sorry, this looks out of scope for mbscholars website, but I cannot help it. Someone needs to say something. It is so disheartening that the silence created around this notion “Sex” at home and in public has orchestrated an interesting topic in the minds of teenagers and adolescents and a profitable business online.

Today, it is believed the online porn sector is worth around $15 billion, and it reaches more people, and younger people, every year. In 2016 the analytics report of just one website, Pornhub, revealed that its videos were watched 92 billion times last year, by 64 million daily visitors. It works out at 12.5 videos for every person on the planet, and if you tried watch all of them consecutively – don’t – you’d be busy for 524,641 years.

So many are ignorant of the serious impending danger that this menace – pornography brings to the mind of a student. I wish to open the eye of my reader to the slow signs and calls of a more deadly future painted by this societal disease.

Yesterday, I was helping an 8 year old girl in her assignment, you know what she said? “I can’t wait to see how you would look like without your panties” out of the blues!! I almost collapsed. That’s the future adults.

8 out of every 10 internet users have at one point in their life come across internet pornography. If only they were aware of the danger they are putting their lives into? In the school hostels and lodges that is like the real market for porn websites, streets, kiosks, social media are now depot for immorality.

  5. You risk potency
  6. Your academics begins to suffer ultimately
  7. Your future is in jeopardy

Lets take a look at the brain structure of a porn user

The brain of a porn addict looks similar to – and perhaps even worse than – a drug addict’s

The brain of a porn addict looks similar to – and perhaps even worse than – a drug addict’s.

It’s shocking and scary, but the good news is that the damage can be reversed.

To understand why this happens – and how to fix it – we need to understand just a little bit about the brain.

Your brain Cortex. Center for intelligence?

The CEO of your brain is the prefrontal cortex. It is the top front portion of your brain and, though it may be smaller in size, it really decides what you do.

It is responsible for good decision making, impulse control, planning, and other complex functions befitting its executive position… and it’s not fully formed until the age of 25.

On the brain scans of a porn addict, the prefrontal cortex looks diminished – much like a deflated tire. 

By watching porn, this person has bypassed their CEO many times to go straight to “I want to feel good.”

That “feel good” portion of your brain would be your limbic system.

Operating on Automatic: Our Limbic System

Our limbic system is housed in a lower section of the brain.

It’s our survival system – where we act on impulse to jump out of the way of an oncoming train, for instance.

Dodging certain death is an automatic reaction that we don’t have to think about.

Because one of its purposes is to keep us alive, the limbic system can overpower the prefrontal cortex.

This is great when facing a dangerous situation.

It’s not so great when it’s been bypassed on a daily basis to do something our CEO would put a stop to… and watching porn fits that bill.

This is why an addict will do things they never thought they would, because their higher reasoning takes a back seat and the limbic system takes over.

The Delicate Balance

Your limbic system acts as the gas pedal while your prefrontal cortex is the brakes. Even in a normal situation, the limbic system can override the prefrontal cortex.

Dr. Ted Roberts, former Marine Fighter Pilot, pastor, and host of the Conquer Series, a cinematic DVD series that helps men break free from porn explains it this way:

“Your brain is like a Ferrari with bicycle brakes.”

Watching porn repeatedly is strengthening the limbic system pathways to unhealthy behavior, ignoring your CEO in process. And like a muscle that hasn’t been used, the prefrontal cortex will atrophy. This makes us even more impulsive and less “in control” of our behavior.

With a regular porn user, their ability to control their behavior has lessened considerably, and they are much more driven to act out again and again on impulse.

In a perfect storm situation for those who use porn: The limbic system is also where memories are formed and pleasure registers. So even seeing the computer or the phone used to view porn in the past can be a trigger to watch porn again.

All told, you end up with a brain that is highly overactive in some places and woefully underactive in others. Your brain isn’t functioning normally.

That is an excerpt from your brain on porn-conquer series

So you see, if you are really a scholar who intends to be successful in this life, you need to stop right now, avoid as much as you can, remove any triggers, delete any movie that brings you closer to the grasp of pornography. Its dangers cannot be over emphasized.

Love yourself so much that you can sacrifice pornography for your future.
