The Cardboard Butterfly Effect and Porn

In this video, Dr. Trish Leigh discusses what the cardboard butterfly effect and porn have to do with each other. Also included is the research behind how pornography is a supper normal stimulus, how that shows up in your life, and a brain tip.

 

What is the cardboard butterfly effect?

In 1973, a Nobel prize was awarded to Nikolaas Tinbergen for his discover that involved cardboard butterflies. He discover when cardboard butterflies were decorated to be more colorful and more beautiful than the average butterfly. Then butterflies sought out the cardboard butterfly to mate. So the super normal stimulus of a butterfly that doesn’t exist in nature because of the high level of arousal and stimulation would give these butterflies a more power instinct to mate with them. However, they do not exist in nature because they are fake. That research study showed that there are aspects in the world that are super normal stimuli. Pornography is the number one super stimuli in the world.

 

What does it mean?

It means when you’re exposed to pornography on the screen and images come up that can’t be found in nature. Therefore, they are highly stimulating and arousing. It’s similar to the cardboard butterfly. Your brain receives a flood of dopamine into your system and opioid types of transmitters, which seemingly make you feel good because it’s for pleasure. You’re also receiving opioid pain reducing neurotransmitters, which helps bond your brain to the screen. This keeps you coming back for more pornography.
