Studies in neurobiology and neuropsychiatry show that childhood sexual abuse thins a region of the cortical homunculus involved in the perception of sexual pleasure. In adulthood, these victims often have anhedonia (no pleasure) from sexual activity.

You think it is obvious that the cortical homunculus thins in this scenario?

Odd how most sexual serial killers were sexually abused in childhood.

Does it thin that area or is it associated with a thinning of that area?

That is so sad. These poor kids. Abusers need to be killed immediately. I have no use for them.
