Pornography: Step 3

Abstract:

Are you a user or an addict? The law of diminishing returns governs a man's lust. This law says that we grow less sensitive to the same level of stimuli over time, and thus require ever-increasing stimuli to elicit the same response. An alcoholic may require twelve beers to match the effects that one beer has on someone who does not drink regularly. Just as we can build up a tolerance to alcohol with regular use over time, we can build up numbness to pornographic images with regular use over time. For that reason, men who struggle with lust will require more flesh over time to arrive at the same level of satisfaction and fantasy. The scary part is not that men can so easily become addicted, but that men can so easily become addicted
