This site is created and maintained by a husband and wife: Gary Wilson and Marnia Robinson. As adjunct faculty at Southern Oregon University, Gary taught anatomy and physiology labs. He has also taught anatomy, physiology, and pathology at vocational schools in California and Oregon. Gary's passion is the neuroscience of reward, sex, and bonding. He has spent the last 12 years poring over related research and integrating the latest discoveries.
Marnia's work focuses on both the subtle effects of sex on partner perception and a very gentle, non-goal-oriented approach to lovemaking that has shown up repeatedly across the globe over thousands of years. To help her out, Gary collected a good bit of science that helped demonstrate the effects (both negative and positive) of sex and relationships on the brain. Much of the research came from recent findings about addiction and the neurochemical effects of superstimuli. It was shared on her website.
Then the porn guys showed up. At first, it didn't seem like they belonged there. Yet the research Gary had collected on the brain and sex proved very helpful to them. Since then, the trickle of relevant studies has become a flood of research on behavioral addiction and sexual conditioning. You can find it here.
Now that this site exists as a clearinghouse for relevant information, peer support for porn recovery has primarily moved to sites like www.yourbrainrebalanced.com, r/Pornfree and r/NoFap. Gary monitors the experiences reported on those sites and many others across the Web. This process continues to generate articles about the effects of Internet porn on the brain, all of which are collected here.
