Porn as addictive as alcoholism or drug abuse

London, Sept 23 : A recent study has revealed that people who are addicted to porn show similar brain activity to alcoholics or drug addicts.

The MRI scans of the test subjects, who confessed to compulsive pornography use, showed that the reward centers of the brain reacted to explicit material in the same way as an alcoholic's might on seeing a drinks' advertisement, the Independent reported.

The research, which was conducted by Cambridge University, examined the brain activity of 19 addictive pornography users against a control group of people who were not compulsive users.

The study is yet to be published but is going to be featured in a Channel 4 documentary called 'Porn on the Brain.'
