adminaccount888 Latest News

If you are one of the more than 9 million viewers of Gary Wilson’s TEDx talk The Great Porn Experiment  then you will love his book Your Brain on Porn – Internet Pornography and the Emerging Science of Addiction.   It comes in three formats – in paperback, Kindle and PDF  – and is available from Commonwealth Publishing.

The book updates the science explained in the 2012 talk. It also shares hundreds of recovery stories by brave men and women who have managed to free themselves from the lure of internet pornography.

As a former science teacher, Gary has a gift for explaining otherwise complex science in a totally accessible way so that a reader has no need for any previous knowledge of brain science to understand its key messages. The book is full of insights that can help any reader make sense of his or her own behaviour and help influence sought after changes.

Reviews:
“As is the case so often with new phenomena, science lags behind lived experience. Gary Wilson brings the two together powerfully as he explores the addiction that dare not speak its name. This book crackles with energy, urgency and humour. It offers up the hope of recovery to those struggling with internet porn addiction and it does so with compassion and informed authority. As a clinician I recognise the stories within its pages and I recognise the value of the solutions offered. This book is not to be missed.  David McCartney, MD, Primary Care Addiction Specialist, Edinburgh

“At last a morally neutral and scientifically robust explanation for why so many people are getting hooked on porn. This book provides a comprehensive biological and sociological exploration of how and why pornography addiction is damaging so many people’s lives and provides strategies for reclaiming control that are backed up by hundreds of stories of personal experience. This is essential reading for therapists, sex educators and everyone who cares about enjoying sex.”  Paula Hall, PhD, Sex Therapist, Author Understanding & Treating Sex Addiction
