Sex and sexuality 2 (I’ve got Issues #18)

Hey there people of the world, I’m back!! and I don’t just mean back to make another post. I mean I have also 100% got my mojo back. These last few days I have been coming up with ideas non stop and it feels great. This post is a continuation of the sex and sexuality series I had started a while back. I made it to talk about some stigma around sexual activity. This time due to a personal incident that happened recently I thought I would talk about “pornography”.

Now this is a bit embarrassing but to explain this incident fully, I have to go over the entire incident. This may come as a bit of a shock to you guys but, I do watch porn. Oh no! the world has come to an end!!!.

People tend to make porn such a big deal even though we all know we watch it. Obviously I can’t vouch for girls since I never asked them but, I’m sure that they would be interested in it too if it wasn’t so socially unacceptable for girls to watch porn.

The incident which I am referring to happened yesterday. I was watching porn movie when my dad walks in. Luckily I had just started so nothing really bad happened. The main thing that happened was that even though my dad didn’t really see the video, he guess what I was watching correctly and gave me his best “this is wrong” speech. I have thought about this a lot and I really can’t find enough reasons to not watch porn. I’m not saying that there aren’t things about it that are wrong but as long as you do everything in moderation, I don’t see the reason that people make porn out to be such a huge problem.

One of the problems you can think of is, porn can be addictive. Many people watch porn as a compulsion almost. There is a simple way of getting over this. DON’T OVER DO IT, it’s just that simple. Porn like many things in life is harmful if you use too much of it, that is why you should err on the side of caution and watch only limited amounts of it. The other harmful thing I can think of is that it gives you unrealistic expectations of people.. Some people watch porn and start expecting everyone to have huge silicone enhanced breasts or large penises. In this regard I can’t help you. You decide whether you have unrealistic expectations or not . I more than anyone understands the importance of fantasy, but losing yourself in a sex dream that reality will never measure up to is not healthy for everyone.

Porn should be used with limits, recreationally. There is no need to demonize what we are attracted to, all we need to do is be smart. I personally use it but I don’t need it. I think that is probably the best line. When you can get by without a problem with or without porn that is a healthy place to be, in the meantime don’t let other people guilt you about porn.  Everyone watches it, the people who will make a bit deal out of it do as well, and if you are shaming someone because they watch porn , try to think about it this way. As long as the person is not lost in this world, you don’t have to be on a high horse about this. It is perfectly natural.

This is where my personal knowledge on the subject ends. Now I know it’s hard but I want you guys to tell me your opinion on this topic. If you are a girl tell me what you think about porn and should to be more acceptable for girls to watch it. If you are an adult tell me you thoughts on the topic and if you would shame you child or significant other for watching porn and why. If anyone else has a take on the questions feel free to give in your two cents

Bye

  1. I get what you mean here, I don’t know why but I never picture a woman watching porn but I do picture a man – Yeah, I guess I am bit sexist in that view, I don’t know.
