In brief: Speculative

This is politics and ideology rather than science.
I searched the database at the nih for the past 19 years and found a whopping four articles on erotica and dopamine. Naltrexone ends a porn obsession, parkinson's meds trigger a sexual obsession, there's more Dopamine metabolite after watching the stuff, cabergoilne affects sex. The rest is made up as far as i can tell. Put it away, it's stupid.
