DID you know that watching porn give you short term meory loss?

Did you know that watching porn gives you short-term memory los.

A writer for CBS Las Vegas called – get this – Benjamin Fearnow notes:

Watching excessive amounts of online pornography can adversely affect a person’s short-term memory and decision-making ability.

Decisions that can be affected include:

What porn to watch?

What porn not to watch?

Am I neglecting Cherie?

To Germany, then, for the results of a study of 28 heterosexual men – average age: 26 – at the University of Duisburg-Essen. The men were shown images. They were asked to press a button to says if the image four slides back had been racy or sober.

The men who saw more porn got the order wrong (67% correct) more often than the men who had seen less porn (80% correct).

Men who saw no porn are still in the lab waiting for the porn.

As they say in Vegas, porno haven, what happens in Vegas isn’t worth remembering.

Over in the Daily Mail, study author Christian Laier notes:

“Sexual arousal interferes with working memory, an important facet of executive functioning. Sexual arousal and its impacts on cognitive processes might explain parts of these negative effects.”

What the hell is executive functioning? And does it get its own washroom…?
