For most women, there’s no need to worry. Whatever may be drawing a man to porn, it’s seldom a reflection on his partner, says sex therapist Lonnie Barbach, PhD, in practice in San Francisco. “Some women feel threatened because they don’t think they’re as sexy as a porn star,” she says. “But it’s not about what he’s not getting at home. It’s the novelty. It’s a turn-on.”

Still, the question remains: Why do so many men like looking at pictures of naked people? That’s not an easy question to answer. Porn-induced arousal has been linked to many parts of the brain. One recent theory holds that mirror neurons, brain cells that fire when an action is performed as well as when it’s observed, play an important role in male arousal. But knowing what’s fired up by porn doesn’t tell us why our brains get turned on.

Stambaugh points to evolution. Men’s brains, he says, are hard-wired for easy arousal, so that men are ready for sex whenever opportunity knocks — a propagation-of-the-species thing. With online porn so readily at hand, vicarious opportunities — cue the mirror neurons — are ever present.
