The guys from ASAP Science have sex on the brain.

Recently they've explained the science behind morning wood and why all men once had vaginas. And now they're tackling the science of porn addiction.

It turns out that your love of porn and love of people are not so different. Both flood the brain with the feel-good neurotransmitter called dopamine, causing you to form a chemical dependency on the object of your affection, whether that's your boyfriend or the hundreds of guys on TwinkSluts.com.

But their final point of advice is worth heeding —  disconnect from online porn every so often so that you can try connecting with an actual human. It's good for you, good for your brain and good for love bits.
