Unhealthy sexual activity has a profound effect on one’s mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being because there is a chemical release that occurs during orgasm that creates a bond between two people; soul ties are created with each sexual encounter; engaging in early sexual activity fosters unhealthy views; sexual abuse is somewhat common, and it is destructive; pornography and the lack of a father figure results in unhealthy views of one’s self.
Exploring the chemical bond reveals that there has been much research in regards to the chemicals released in the brain during sexual activity and the effect that the bonds created during such activity has on one’s whole person health. Dr. Douglas Weiss is a noted expert in the field of sexual addiction and pornography. He has researched the brain and has provided insight into the possibility that a bonding occurs through chemicals released in the brain during sexual activity. A renowned Scientist, Ivan Petrovich Pavlov, also researched the idea of conditioning. He determined that a conditioning can occur that teaches the brain to recognize a familiar event or activity that reminds one of a desired feeling. (Wilson 43-44) The theory suggests that the chemical acts like super glue on the soul. The souls are “glued” by the chemical, and it is impossible to separate the two souls without damage. In essence, the studies established that the brain becomes addicted to such behaviors. Learned behaviors lead to such addictions.
According to research the brain learns behaviors or is trained. “The pleasure center of the brain is the most easily trained part of the human mind. This place in the brain is called the Medial Pre-optic Nucleus (MPN), and when the body experiences great pleasure, as in a sexual release, this part of the brain is rewarded.” It is amazing to realize that the human brain can be so easily conditioned in regards to pleasure. According to the research of Dr. Douglas Weiss, “when a person experiences sexual arousal, the brain releases endorphins that help train the MPN to associate pleasure with whatever the person is doing, looking at, smelling, and so on.”(Weiss) In conclusion, a person will become accustomed to a particular stimuli and will require the stimuli in order to experience sexual gratification. It is possible that it will also progressively require a greater degree of the stimuli to achieve the same level of satisfaction. The fact that the part of the brain that controls the realization of pleasure is the most easily trained would help one understand why so many people can be bound by addictive behaviors.
The fact that various scientists have studied the effect of the chemicals released during sexual activity lends credibility to the idea of chemical bonding because the varied findings point toward the same outcome. Two doctors, Keroack and Diggs, had these similar findings: “Studies show that levels of oxytocin rose threefold in men during erection and orgasm, but if...
