Among the recent developments concerning the "shield my eyes" crowd...
Jeffrey Satinover, a psychiatrist and advisor to the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality echoed Layden's concern about the internet and the somatic effects of pornography.
"Pornography really does, unlike other addictions, biologically cause direct release of the most perfect addictive substance," Satinover said. "That is, it causes masturbation, which causes release of the naturally occurring opioids. It does what heroin can't do, in effect."
Last I checked, one didn't require Internet porn in order to masturbate. If these "naturally occurring opioids" were as addictive as heroin, none of our male population would have made it out of their teens alive.
Gee, I was starting to worry that the hairy palms and blindness folks had gone extinct.
