I guess you are referring to the brain stimulation rather than activity. If you actually think that it decreases the brain activity than you are unaware of the fact that watching porn helps many in increasing the brain activity and repairing sex life in many cases as well.

When you do an actual physical activity, your brain works more. This is the reason why watching is less stimulating for your brain than actually doing it. When you watch porn, you do not need to work on the physical strength and stamina. However, in case of performing a sexual activity, not only your brain but the whole body works in a flow to ensure that the activity is full of pleasure.

If you are facing any dullness while watching porn, you should try switching between the content and see what you actually like. But in the end, the actual activity is something that is going to satisfy you much better than just watching it.
