I said it was LIKE porn, like porn in the sense that it was imagery that can be used to deliberately produce a strong chemical reaction in your brain.
You don't have to get off to it (and I never said most people did, I said watching gore for the thrill wasn't for everyone just as watching porn to get off isn't for everyone).
The reaction doesn't have to be as strong as an orgasm, just that it IS a reaction.
Problem is you think like porn = sexual pleasure, when that is never what I've been saying. At heary, they are similar because people watch them for similar reasons, to produce a sense of pleasure. Doesn't matter if they're equal in power or if caused by different chemicals, at heart they're the same, driven by similar desires.
