 For better or worse, the internet brings people together from distant corners of the world, and has information on every conceivable topic. And, of course, that includes porn. There’s some debate about how much ofthe internet is actually pornographic content. But if you look for it, you’ll find it. So how does it affect people’s brains,attitudes, and behaviors? The short answer is, it’s complicated, andthere’s a lot we don’t know. But we have studied some of the risks—and yes, even possible benefits—of watching pornography. So you know, some of these studies talk about disturbing behaviors like sexual violence and rape. Just in case you would like to avoid those things. Most research on pornography is correlational. There aren’t volunteers who get randomly assigned to watch a bunch of explicit videos to see what happens to their brains. Instead, lots of studies involve surveys,asking people about their behaviors and traits, in addition to how much porn they watch. On top of that, everyone who participates needs to consent to being in a study about pornography, which might mean some people self-select out of this. All that to say: we can't be sure if these findings apply to everyone or even most people, but they’re a start. Some research has found that watching a lot of pornography might reflect differences in people's brains, especially in a part called the striatum. The striatum is involved in reward processing, and consistently gets activated during sexual arousal—among other regions. Sexual arousal is a workout for a lot of your brain. Two MRI studies tested about 70 male participantsby showing them sexy pictures. And the men who felt their pornography use was addictive or problematic had more activity in the ventral striatum compared to those who didn’t. Another study found that how much porn men watched was negatively correlated with the size of a part of the striatum called the right caudate, as well as the connectivity between the striatum and other parts of the brain. The researchers of that last study say it'spossible that people who watch a lot of pornography stimulate this reward system a lot, and actuallyrewire their brain to need more stimulation. But they also note that these brain differencesmight not be caused by porn. In other words, people with a smaller striatum may need more stimulation to experience pleasure, and seek out more pornography. With this kind of correlational research,you can't really tell which of the two it is. Another question that comes up a lot is whetherviewing pornography can be cathartic— basically, a safe outlet for certain emotions. For instance, psychologists have tried tostudy how it affects aggression. If you look at the general pattern across the U.S., as pornography has become easier to access over the past few decades, rates of violent crime like rape have gone down. And there’s a similar pattern if you look at when pornography has become widely available in other countries, too. But, like we mentioned before, this is justa correlation and not all studies show this link. For example, a 2016 meta-analysis in the Journal of Communication looked at 22 different studies that asked people about their porn viewing and self-reported sexual aggression— things like using force, verbal harassment, or other threatening behaviors. And they found that more porn viewing was related to higher levels of verbal and physical sexual aggression, particularly if the porn had violent content. This suggests that behavioral modeling mightbe at work: that people who see a behavior in others—even on a screen—are more likely to do it themselves. So psychologists have tried to make senseof these contradictory data. One 2012 study published in the Journal ofCriminal Justice might help shed some light: the relationship between porn and aggressioncould have to do with timing. The researchers asked over 600 adult men who were convicted of sex crimes about their history of watching pornography. They found that regularly watching pornography during adolescence was linked with more severe crimes committed as adults, including morehumiliation of their victims, so maybe early exposure to aggressive sexual behavior played a part in that. And if the convicts had reported viewing porn just before their offense, their crimes were less severe, so catharsis may have been involved. But there are also lots of factors thatlead to violent crime. So, again, without causal evidence, we don't know if or how pornography is directly linked. Plus, the sample sizes of studies like that are relatively small, because most people don't commit violent crimes. It's a little easier to measure something like sexism, since anyone can report their attitudes about men and women. And do, all the time. It's the internet. According to two studies published in the Journal of Sex Research in 2015 and 2017 that looked at the habits of tens of thousands of Americans, using pornography is associated with more egalitarian views—things like wanting women in the workplace and in positions of power. But the story is different when it comes to rape myths, like the idea that what someone’s wearing can excuse violence against them. Surveys of hundreds of college students have found that men and women who view porn—especially violent porn—are more likely to believe rape myths. Finally, when it comes to your overall well-being, several studies suggest that whether porn is good or bad for you may depend on whether you think it is. One study of over 2000 people found that watching porn was linked with an increase in self-reported symptoms of depression. But that effect was mainly seen in the 10% who watched despite their moral opposition to it. The researchers supposed that those people were distressed by the dissonance between their moral ideals and their actions. For those who weren't morally opposed, only the people who watched pornography, like, several times a week or more reported more symptoms of depression. And the researchers figured the opposite could be happening here: these people may be depressed and using porn to cope. So there do seem to be some risks associated with watching a lot of pornography, but it might not be all bad. More than anything, we need more research to really know if and how much it affects us. Because psychology, and the human brain, and our behavior? It's complicated. Thanks for watching this episode of SciShowPsych!

Why Apple products is very expensive?

  Why Apple products is very expensive? Apple logo  We all know Apple is an American company and enjoys making a large chunk of their revenue domestically. But Apple sells their products in many international markets and even has retail stores in 24 foreign countries. Some of those 17markets, like Japan, have accessto Apple products at a price comparable to the US. For example an iPhone XS costs 112,800 yenin Japan, which is about 1,058 USD. And when you consider the country’s 8% salestax is included in that price, it actually makes the iPhone XS about $20 cheaper than in the US. Although this fluctuates depending on the conversion rate. But not every country is lucky enough to pay comparable prices for Apple products. To buy the base model iPhone XS, you’d haveto pay $1,235 in Mexico, $1,285 in India, $1,454 in Sweden, and $1,800 in Brazil. And these high prices have prompted customersto fly to the US just to buy a new iPhone. So why exactly are Apple products so expensivein these cou

What is DNA?

  What is DNA?    Deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA for short is the molecule that carries the genetic information in all living organisms In terms of structure, DNA's a polymer that's made of four sub-units known simply as A (adenine), C (cytosine), T (thymine), and G (guanine) Each of these sub-units has three main components: a unique nitrogenous base, a phosphate group, and a sugar They connect together through their phosphate groups to form these long polymer chains, which are the basis of DNA The order of the sub-units is extremely important and it's how the genetic information is stored It gets a little more complicated though because DNA isn't just one chain, it's actually two and they're held together by interactions between the nitrogenous bases This interaction is known as hydrogen bonding Where A likes to pair with T and C with G This hydrogen bonding along with various other intermolecular forces twists the DNA into its characteristic ladder-like structu
