A phenomenon dubbed "pornosexuality" has emerged where people prefer online porn to sex with real people, it has been claimed.
The term describes someone whose "sexual orientation is linked solely to porn", according to Medical Daily.
One self-identified pornosexual quoted by the website said: "If I had to choose to have one or the other for the rest of my life, I would choose porn over real sex any day."

Touch has been found to entail positive effects in the person receiving it, whereas effects on the person giving touch have previously been unexplored.

Furthermore, we compared the hedonic and autonomic nervous effects of stroking the partner and self-stroking.
