Another Celebrity speaks out about the addictive nature of pornography

During a web show Rapper Denzel Curry spoke out against the addictive nature of pornography and commented how Terry Crews had made similar statements in the past..

Celebrities and other public figures are starting to realize the damaging effects that pornography can have on a person, their life and relationships.

In the interview Denzel Curry said, “I’m telling you man it’s hard. It’s a hard journey. It’s a hard journey. I’m trying though. I’m trying. That stuff deteriorates your brain. When you are so use to something and people say it’s just like drugs. Porn is an addiction. Terry Crews once said he was addicted to it. Because it’s something you just look. You can just look at the stuff. It’s a very addicting thing.”

We applaud Denzel Curry in his journey to remove pornography from him life. There are many people, men and women, ensnared in the grasps of pornography who truly do want to be free from it. We also applaud him for using his platform and following for good, to expose the harms of pornography and challenge the societal norm that pornography has become acceptable.

Since 2009, there have been at least 30 major studies that have revealed porn has negative and detrimental impacts on the brain. In fact, a 2014 study found that increased pornography use is linked to decreased brain matter in the areas of motivation and decision-making, impaired impulse control, and desensitization to sexual reward.

Repeated exposure to pornography causes the brain to literally rewire itself and create new nerve pathways. Pornography triggers the brain to pump out chemicals which forms new pathways, leading to actual physical, lasting change in the brain.
