How is porn not sex?

Plus I mentioned God, so you know religion.

I will also take this moment to say that I am glad to live in a country with relatively little censorship of pornography, thus hitting politics and firmly establishing this as an RSP thread.

If God created the devil so we could have porn, then kudos to God.

There are anti-porn feminists and pro-porn feminists.

This thread is too positive to be in RSP.

Like everything else that can be over-exploited by humans to the detriment of other humans it needs to be regulated.

When you are an athiest, you are less likely to make a distinction since all of life is porn. Just being alive is stimulating to all the senses, glands and nervous system.

Porn fucks your brain up, it fucks up your idea of sex... or at least it does for me. I avoid it. I find that it ruins my imagination and makes me weak. Really it's a giant waste of time that does nothing positive for me at all. I can learn much more about myself by creating my own porn in my mind when I masturbate. Sure, what happens there isn't particularly healthy either but at least I'll learn about myself and use my imagination. Porn is the easy way out.

It's also far too prevalent in today's society. I like the law they passed in England recently whereby if you want porn from your internet provider you have to explicitly tell them or else all of it gets cut out. I don't know it it's instituted yet but I like the idea. I teach kids that are quite young and the porn these kids have seen... Jesus Christ! (there's some religion for you too, plus I'm going against the grain making this totally perfect for RSP now ... YOUR WELCOME!!).

Yes, normal made for men porn usually does objectify women.. at least from what I've seen. It's violent and usually vile on top of that. I've sure some of it is more erotic and respectful but mostly the case is not that at all. Gay porn (men or women) can be violent and disrespectful too.

All of it helps to trivializes the role that sex and thinking about sex can play in our lives. All of it can create unhealthy or at least unnecessary desires that may not have existed otherwise. Desires that serve to waste our time in unproductive ways.

Porn, no sir, I don't like it.

I will not, however, say that people are bad for watching porn or that it should be illegal. Porn is fine for those who like it, but personally, I think it's a monumental waste of time, ruins your imagination, creates false desires that needn't be there, and fucks up your appreciation for love and sex... I'm sure there's more too.

Now it's a RSP thread!

Actually, I don't think all the porn prevalent in our internet society can be completely blocked out of children's life. Unless you move to a hovel in the mountains. Instead I would give them access to the kind of porn that doesn't objectify women and teaches them a thing or two about sex.

On Ebay you can still find the old mechanical pornographs I remember from elementary school. Adjusting the flywheel can be a distraction, and you have to remember to refill the drum with KY. But you have to admit: those units were built to last.

Hopefully it was clear that "ruin" was a bit of hyperbole. If not let me say this to set you at ease. Using porn instead of your imagination does't "ruin" your imagination. Clearly. But not using porn and using your imagination instead will certainly strengthen your imagination. Generally when you exercise something it gets stronger. Imagination is no exception. Porn creates that fantasy for you and perhaps introduces you to new ones that probably come from someone else's imagination.


Is that like saying you shouldn't read books or watch movies?
