How is Pornography Addictive?

A part of the brain is hijacked by this supernormal stimulus when you’re young. That creates a flood of neurochemicals into the brain. Normally someone is shown pornography and it releases this massive neurochemical relief. Therefore, immediately the brain will try to calibrate itself. To even out those levels to get the brain and body back to homeostasis. However, the next time this young person goes back to watch pornography again.
