So I read this article after someone shared it on the twitters: http://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/wolf37/English - I was intrigued by this claim: "hardcore pornography’s effectiveness in achieving rapid desensitization in subjects has led to its frequent use in training doctors and military teams to deal with very shocking or sensitive situations." [citation needed].

It's a hard thing to search for information about - for example:
http://www.google.co.uk/search?gcx=c&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=training+doctors+pornography+desensitizing

returns a bajillion copies of the original article.

Anyone know if this kind of thing is actually done? Or is Ms Wolf making it up?
