#9 – Lay off the porn

Porn is now considered socially acceptable and is more accessible than ever. It is also becoming more diverse and extreme in nature. It’s a conversation mainstream outlets are not having because to challenge it, you are taking on the majority of people and their hidden habits.

 

It is no longer a taboo subject to talk about, but is most certainly taboo to challenge the majority of people on.

 

You don’t need to scratch too far beneath the surface to understand the damage porn is having on people, especially young men and how they act out their sexual desires.

 

Because men (and women) are watching more extreme and diverse porn acts being carried out, typically via online streaming sites such as Youporn, it is having a serious and negative impact (and has been for a while) on the sexual relationships between people. It may be a significant contributory factor in the breakdown of marriage and we know this is tearing at the fabric of society. Society being those that surround us, so it is in our best interest to have these people moving in a stronger direction.

 

Sexual acts that even 10 years ago were considered taboo are now considered the norm and the tendency is to assume that through time we have evolved in the right direction, especially regarding sexual openness. Well, that would be a naive assumption to make. If you place it on a gratification scale then the winning argument would be that this is okay, but to use gratification as a scale for anything morally important is blind thought. Gratification and consequence are inextricably linked, but the latter is something most would prefer not engage with.

 

I think about how porn stars feel about what they do for a living and I find it difficult to believe that they feel good by their choices. Yep, they can sometimes earn a wedge and they get their name in lights and credits and all the hype and recognition that comes with celebrity and vanity, but getting home each night after being pumped by a stranger for cash can’t be more than a glorified means of prostitution with an audience. It’s just marketed differently and legal, which we know is certainly no test of moral right or wrong!

 

Most of us have been duped by the lure of the instant gratification porn provides, but as a conscious human that engages my thoughts, it leaves me with an emptiness. Feeling seedy, weaker and shameful. I prefer to trust those feelings rather than what society or law tells me is okay! Don’t take my word for it. Come off it for one week and tell me there isn’t a positive difference! If nothing else you’ll probably save a stack of time and paper.
