Is compulsive sexual behaviour comparable to drug addiction?
A new brain imaging study offers a thoughtful take on the touchy subject of ‘pornography addiction’
Last September I reviewed a documentary called ‘Porn on the Brain’. It was the kind of edgy programme you’d expect from Channel Four – a combination of British tongue-in-cheekery, outrageous punditry, and bona fide science. Overall it succeeded by raising questions about the kind of research we need in order to understand compulsive sexual behaviours and to help people overcome them.
