    Neuroscience: Porn Makes Women into Tools

    Caution, Images contain slightly mature content


    Men who view pictures of scantily clad damsels (IMG) experience similar brain activity to when they are using tools, research suggests.

    Shown pictures of such ladies, brain scans apparently illustrated the same parts of the brain associated with tool use became active, whilst those associated with social cognition were less active.

    Princeton Professor Susan Fiske claims:

    “The only other time we have seen this is when people look at pictures of the homeless or of drug addicts because they really don’t want to think about what is going on in their minds.”
    It was also found that men tended to remember such images better than they did when dealing with fully clothed females.

    She insinuates that the effect could lead men to “sexualise” their colleagues at work, should their bestial eyes alight upon such a depraved image. She denies being anti-porn all the same:

    “I am not saying there should be censorship but people need to know of the associations people have in their minds.”
    Presenting her research, she claimed that such gravure makes men think of women as “less than human”.

    They did not bother to test the brain activity of women as well; however, she did concede when asked that women, instead of physical attractiveness, considered such reasonable factors as age and bank balance.

    Via the Daily Mail.

    Professor Susan Fiske lists her research interests as “stereotyping” and “discrimination”, which when combined with studies into “the objectification of women”, “ambivalent sexism” and “dehumanisation”, may suggest the results of her inquiry were a foregone conclusion…
    Now, assuming that this is conclusive evidence of the male psyche, would it be okay to think that most males who see a female portray them in their minds with a certain degree of sexual fantasy?

    Take for example this picture of a Japanese Schoolgirl (IMG), there's nothing apparentaly out of place, sexually, in this picture: fully clothed, talking with her friend in what I'm thinking is the streets of Tokyo. Harmless, right? It's hard to think that from that picture the schoolgirl, in theory, becomes a tool, a fantasy, of the male audience, specifically those who are trained to drool over schoolgirl uniforms.

    Thoughts? Point-Of-Views?

    I'm hardly believing that a woman is in any way similar to a bandsaw. Personally I find this a tad weird. Is this the same to say that using tools causes some sort of sexual thrill in men?

    Or are we saying we now view women as a toolbox?

    I never really put two and two together, but who am I to deny my own brain?
    Why hello there!

    That something new? Men having fantasies? Men remembering a picture of a naked woman better than a picture of a full clothed one?
    The more hormones, the less you try to tune into another person's thoughts and feelings, especially if you see pictures similar to those.
    One of the rather unnecessary survey's in my opinion ...
    You are now breathing manually. :P

    well, my opinion is this.

    its not a womans fault (espicially the schoolgirls) that men are perverted. and i agree that sucks, but as stated men having sexual fantasies isnt new.
    i can't say i dont like porn, but i do think it has seriously some bad sides..
    take bondage or rape themes, that crap should be illegal. or when it is of younger girls (14, 15, basically anything under 20)
    i wouldn't say all men who look at porn view women as tools to be used. but some of them do, and theres some sickos out there that only like women that are portrayed in porn, mainly because women in porn do whatever the man wants. and where there is more porn factors like rape, sexual abuse, etc go up.
    but for the hormonal teenager...c'mon..cut them some slack if theyre just looking at sports illustrated..(as long its nothing concerning rape, bondage, or showing a woman as a piece of meat or something)
    and by the way. on the fact that men remember pictures of a naked woman more than a clad woman is fact.

    but for girls, let me ask you this. how many times have you have fantasies?
    and does this image...

    stay in your head longer than this..

    or this?
    apparently men aren't the only ones with dirty thoughts

    To quote rule 34 and 35 of the internet: "If it exists, there's a porn for it." and "If there is no porn for it, it either does not exist, or it hasn't been created yet."

    While it may seem like a 4chan meme, it really does ring true. Fetishes are a weird thing, you'd be surprised what gets people off. Hell, there's whole websites dedicated to women eating Pie. Nothing sexual is being done, it just has videos of women eating Pie.

    Does this make women (And for the same case, men, lets not be sexist here) into tools? Well, that's up to the individual, since 99% of all participants in the Porn industry do so by their own choice.
