Women are delicate subjects, showed another study. Men are sincerely advised not to force their partners to watch porn if they don’t want to. Watching porn often make a woman sick to her stomach literally.

A woman's body immediately acts defensive as soon as there is sight of porn especially when it is out of context. It induces nausea most of the time, the report suggests.

"It is just like when you see disgusting food. The emotion that is triggered by for example the smell, ensures that you do not want to eat it," said Charmaine Borg from Groningen University in The Netherlands.

In this particular experiment, researchers made use of an MRI scanner. It was further utilised to measure specific neurological responses to a variety of images for 20 healthy women-participants.

The images included nausea-inducing as well as pictures of explicit sexual penetration. But no faces were shown throughout.

"The results showed a strong overlap in the areas of the brain that became active while viewing the nausea-inducing images and those depicting pornographic scenes," the researchers told.

This interesting outcome could be explained by the fact that women have higher susceptibility to sexual infection in comparison to men.

 This study, was reported by British newspaper Independent.
