- n. a notional addictive chemical claimed to be released in the brain from looking at pornography
The Guardian reports on psychologist Judith Reisman, who argues that pornography is an 'erototoxin' that damages the brain, impairing cognition and rational thought: According to Dr Judith Reisman, pornography affects the physical structure of your brain turning you into a porno-zombie.
Porn, she says, is an "erototoxin", producing an addictive "drug cocktail" of testosterone, oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin with a measurable organic effect on the brain."
