The effect pornography has on the brain is very similar to that of street drugs. The same neurotransmitters released during drug use are released when a user views pornographic images. Neurotransmitter like dopamine, which is responsible for providing the brain with sensations of enjoyment, is released to the same extent when cocaine is used. Others including serotonin, which causes a relaxed feeling, and norepinephrine, which causes the user to remember the prior stimulations, are also released when pornography is viewed.
