TwitterFacebook

It turns out too much porn can be a bad thing — at least if you’re a guy. Women can carry on enjoying as much as they like.

New research has found that unlimited access to online porn may be damaging to men’s sex lives. Looking at it too often can lead them to become less interested in their IRL sex lives, which obviously has all kinds of negative consequences for their health and relationships. Meanwhile, women are lucky enough to remain pretty much unharmed by their porn consumption. 

This new data is the result of two separated surveys that were led by Dr. Matthew Christman, a urologist at the Naval Medical Center of San Diego. The findings were presented last week at the 112th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Like most Mario games, Super Mario Bros. 3 is a pillar of the speedrunning scene and has sparked quite the competition among players trying to beat the game as quickly as possible.
