The mere mention of the word in certain circles is enough to stir a heated debate among some. Hey, it’s right up there next to fornication.
It objectifies women. It’s addictive. And the latest is that it’s a gateway behavior. The last one is really the best one, you know. ‘Cause gosh so many of my friends who have watched porn over the years are now either working in the sex and porn industry don’t cha know.
It always starts out so innocent with watching online videos, then progresses to a threesome, followed by a pole-dancing job at a strip club, and ends up with a job at Studio 20 working livestream camming…………Not.
Seriously though, while I do believe that it can be a gateway behavior for some, I believe the comparison is the same as alcoholism. Some people have a proclivity to develop an addiction to porn. There is a direct correlation with the amount of porn usage and the susceptibility to porn addiction and that’s what the data doesn’t say.
There is also a double standard. If a man is caught with porn, bloody hell, he best be ready to do hand-to-hand combat with his partner and should hire a damn good defense attorney because he’ll be sleeping anywhere but their bed. If a woman is caught watching some porn, she’s a spicy catch. It’s like winning the lotto. Something is wrong with the way our society views gender roles and sexuality.
If a man likes and has a lot of sex he’s considered a stud. If a woman likes and has a lot of sex she’s considered a whore. What?!!!!!
Sexuality has always been taboo here in the U.S. ever since the Puritans stepped off the boat in 1630. The fact is there is nothing wrong with our bodies. They are the greatest instrument we will ever own.
Whatever your opinion is on porn, one thing is for sure, this 97 billion dollar industry isn’t going away any time soon. I for one am glad about this fact, because on occasion, I enjoy watching some porn.
