The Demise of Guys? Or Shaming the Guy Brain?

Here is a fun little article that talks about why guys become addicted to "tech" stuff either it be games, computers or pr0n.
Every compulsive gambler, alcoholic or drug addict will tell you that they want increasingly more of a game or drink or drug in order to get the same quality of buzz.
Video game and porn addictions are different. They are “arousal addictions,” where the attraction is in the novelty, the variety or the surprise factor of the content. Sameness is soon habituated; newness heightens excitement. In traditional drug arousal, conversely, addicts want more of the same cocaine or heroin or favorite food.
The same could be said for overclocking, once you get the rush of a good score or addicted to making the most from your points pool you tend to keep going. On the positive these types of addictions are often short lived and easily replaced.
At least for some
