    Recently a study came out stating that masturbation "shrinks" an aspect in the brain which relates to motivation as a result the research suggests that it leads to "a lack of motivation," It continues to talk about a decrease in grey matter and how it will then affect memory.

    What is your opinion on this whole subject? Do you agree or do you think it is a load of BS? My opinion is that people have been trying to push this idea out for years denoting the fact that masturbation and porn is damaging to anyone who does it. Even the idea that it could make you blind, etc, etc. I think it is to do with religion beliefs as well

    There is a lot os BS myths associated with masturbating and watching porn. Porn is damaging. Masturbating is fine if not excessive, i.e. a couple of times a week is good not more than once a day.

    If the study could survive peer review and is based on science, then you can't really argue against it.

    Yes; however it was already reviewed by Dr Simone Kühn saying there needs to be further research done before conclusions can be drawn.

    Actually, you can do exactly that. Science is always changing and our understanding of the world is constantly evolving; science is by no means dogmatic. Furthermore, the study used a very small sample size and was quite low down on the hierachy of evidence.

    religion and beliefs- definitely the first point to make; many religion doesn't allow masturbation
    Porn is definitely BAD as it influence the brain more in a negative way
    i dunno anything masturbation- bad or good coz i never have done such these things and i am totally fine/normal... never wanted to do as well... coz i think that masturbation is like a drug and porn too coz if u start doing masturbate or start watching porn then u will definitely b addicted to it. rather than doing it less u will do more and then that definitely can be bad

    I never used to have the internet at home when I was 13, I used to have to nick the Littlewoods catalogue, find the lingerie section and sneak into the bathroom if I wanted to masturbate. Now it's so much easier with the internet, I can use my web browser to go straight to littlewoods.com

    There are a few things wrong with that article. Firstly the title is wrong, it doesn't actually say porn damages your brain with in the article. Then is goes on to say "may shrink" so no certainty and to further raise doubts it says "could be physically harmful". So nothing concrete.

    Furthermore there is this quote.

    It's not clear, for example, whether watching porn leads to brain changes or whether people born with certain brain types watch more porn,” said Dr Simone Kühn.
