At the 2014 Summit for the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation (CESE), Dr. Donald Hilton gave this keynote address. In it, he reviews much of the neuroscience literature to help the general public understand how pornography changes the brain. Dr. Hilton counters the notion that pornography addiction is not valid or widespread.
Dr. Hilton is a neurosurgeon and clinical associate professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center, serving as director of the spine fellowship at the medical school program, and director of neurosurgical training for the residency program at the Methodist Hospital.
The Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation (CESE) is focused on bringing a variety of people together to solve and end the complex social issue of sexual exploitation and its associated companion – pornography. In order to do this, it unites the efforts of like-minded organizations and leaders across the world in a loose coalition. As of September, 2014 there are 280 national, state and local organizations in the Coalition.
