Porn Is Changing Australian Men’s Behaviour

don-jon10

We’re all aware of porn’s massive success and influence on our society, but what about the way it has changed our behaviour and that of Australian men in particular?

Forensic psychologist Dr Russell Pratt recently said that pornography has affected how we behave: from the way people groom their pubic hair, to the kind of sexual activity we accept in the bedroom.

According to PornHub, about two-thirds of Australian men and one-fifth of Australian women have watched porn, and apparently, our country is ranked 7th in the world for our X-rated habits.

Dr. Pratt believes the absence of pubic hair on anyone under the age of 30 or 40 is driven by the porn industry, as well as the prevalence of anal sex.

Research has also found that when people watched porn, the chemical dopamine is released, along with a protein called DeltaFosB. Each time it’s released, it apparently accumulates until a genetic switch is caused in the brain.

“Porn has the potential to be addictive in the same way that some people have become addicted to alcohol or drug,” says Pratt. “What we see in addicts…is even when they’re not watching porn anymore, the changes to the brain continue.”

Dr. Pratt spoke with News.com.au ahead of the screening of ABC2’s ‘Australians on Porn’ which aired this Monday.
