16: DR. WILLIAM STRUTHERS: HOW PORN FRIES YOUR BRAIN
It’s safe to call Dr. Bill Struthers a brainiac. He holds a doctorate in from the University of Chicago and his research employs the use of stereotaxic surgery, immunochemistry, and behavioral manipulations to investigate gene expression in the cingulate cortex and basal ganglia. He is also a visiting scholar in science and religion at Oxford University.
His academic credentials, however, have had no effect on his ability to talk to the average layman about how pornography hijacks the male brain. In this interview, Dr. Struthers talks about the findings contained in his book Wired for Intimacy: How Pornography Hijacks the Male Brain.
Because we are embodied beings, viewing pornography changes how the brain works, how we form memories and make attachments. He exposes false assumptions about, and casts a vision for, a redeemed masculinity, while showing the science behind compulsive porn use and how to break free.
