Predicting the Future With Porn?

29 Nov

Curious about what is happening here neurologically in relation to porn AND if there is a saturation point at which this … porn ESP effect becomes readable. In other words, is it our innate relationship to observing sexual acts that makes us porn pre-cogs, or is it stimulus type and frequency in concert that prime us for uncannily accurate and sexy predictions? Also: I’d love to see the grant application that funded this research.– AD

An upcoming study to be published in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology claims that test subjects were able to accurately predict future events–and that pornography was one of the tools used in research for the project. But the methodology is sound. Skeptics are impressed. Do humans really have extra-sensory perception (ESP)? Can it really be triggered by the latest issue of Penthouse?

Experimentees were asked 36 times to guess whether an image of “couples engaged in nonviolent but explicit consensual sexual acts” or a blank picture would show up on different sectors of a video screen. Subjects were able to predict the appearance of the pornographic picture 53.1% of the time–significantly above the statistical average of 50%.
