(iWIDK By Paul Micele) - Here’s why you shouldn’t be too angry with your husband when he forgets to pick up the milk on his way home.
German graduate student, Christian Laier, a student at the University of Duisberg-Essen, conducted a study among heterosexual Germans showing that pornography can negatively affect short-term memory.
According to Medical Daily, the study consisted of a memory game of computer images, both sexual and non-sexual, and the participants were asked to identify which of the images had been presented to them previously during the study.
“In general, the men were a lot less accurate when they needed to judge whether they had seen a pornographic image before compared to a non-sexual one. When viewing the non-sexual images, 80 percent of the time they were correct in determining whether they had seen it before. For the pornographic images, that number dropped to an average of 67 percent. That number dropped even further when the images sexually aroused them.”
With that said, don’t be too hard on your teenage sons when they forget to do their chores – now there’s a medical explanation for it.
