In his book, The Brain that Changes Itself, Doidge talks about plasticity...in regards to sexual behavior the problem is that dopamine release associated with ejaculation is a powerful reinforcer (Doidge specificallly talks about the problem of getting people to stop using pornography)...but sometimes "instructions alone" can get people to change...depends on how strong the response is. Also, it depends on whether the person wants to change.


Dr. Welkowitz, what can a person do after they have developed these "unique" responses?
