    Question Why is there so much porn on the internet?

    I'm serious here. We don't need it, yet it's there. What did we do in the days before porn? We survived just fine without it. Why is there this curiosity? it's really nothing new, just different faces. You've seen one sex act, you've seen em all right?

    I am left to believe most people are addicted to porn. It's the only answer. I do believe porn is unhealthy and addictive. I've managed to free myself from such addictions (though I did have a relapse a few weeks ago). And I occasionally (once a month or less) watch my porn I have saved. But I don't actively seek out new porn. I wish I could go cold turkey, but I can't. Sometimes I wish I could return to innocence of my youth when just a naked breast would be enough to turn me on. Those days are long gone.

    I'm not saying porn is responsible for violent crimes or any such nonsense. I just don't believe it's healthy. Lust can lead to obsession. Beware.

    Are you serious? You live in Las Vegas for christ sake. It sounds like your the one who is obsessed with the poontang. Have you checked the threads you've started lately?

    Point.

    We don't "need" a lot of things, but we do them anyway, because they're fun, like porn, and you might learn a thing or two. In conclusion, porn is a legitimate part of modern popular culture.

    I find myself addicted to it also.

    Sometimes I go long lengths of time without it, other times I am back to almost every day.

    And actually, a site of a breast (or even clothed completely) still turns me on and I don't need porn at all. It is just that I am so use to it that I want it and often remember that it is much better than it really is. Really it is just a fake expenditure because I can't find a mate to make love with.

    before porn it was the middle ages, when you were horny, and you had no mules or horses to trade for sex (wife), there were always wars to go to pillage and rape in your free past time...

    these days there is porn instead of rape, and shopping instead of pillaging... while we all work like mules to get the privilige of both the sissy way... bring back the good old days

    Pron makes money. Almost nothing else on the web has a profit margin at all, but pron has a very high margin. That's why there is so much. Due to the nature of exhibitionists, there would always be some, even if folks didn't pay high fees for it.

    It's there because it invented the internet, it's like leftovers.

    Every significant technological advancement is a direct product of creating and distributing porn. - FACT! LAW OF THE UNIVERSE!

    Do you think Gutenberg was thinking about a Bible when he invented the printing press? No, he was figuring out how to print porn and the Bible just gave him financial backing. Now we are stuck with not only the Bible but all these other literary garbage rags obscuring all the porn from our viewership!

    Before the internet was invented, porn was found on railway embankments. To this day, I'm not sure why.

    Once, we (us) found black plastic garbage bags full of porn magazines dumped in the forest behind school. Much later I've found out from various sources that forest porn was apparently a widespread phenomenon. Crazy.

    because porn is good.
    Because many people are too defective when it comes to their looks, their psycho etc and can't get laid, while many people are not defective when it comes to their looks and others
    can uh get themselves laid watching these undefective ones.

    and yes I admit I may be addicted. Hence why I made this thread. I feel bad about it.

    It's weird, I have this catholic guilt even though I never really went to catholic church. I think in all I went to church less than 10 or 20 times. But I think it was a leftover from my mother's family. Or maybe I have mormon guilt left over from my father's family. Who knows.

    But I feel bad. Because I know porn is objectifying women. but some women I like to see their face splattered with... errr you know. I feel bad about that.

    I'd blame that on lack of sex, not porn. I do believe lack of sex is harmful. This is why I don't believe priests should be celibate.

    Although you could argue lack of sex leads to porn.

    Yet married men watch porn. Something I'll never understand.

    @Dis
    It took me two weeks to stop masturbating. I wasn't able to stop watching porn and continue masturbating. I had to stop it completely, these two together.

    I also took another decision, I decided to go talk to girl I was attracted to. I didn't spoke to them in order to sleep with them, but just to have a conversation with them and learn how to spoke to a women. I found that it's easy to talk to a girl.

    Really, to stop masturbating was a illuminating experience in my life. I was afraid to become more perverts ( by the act of suppression (refoulement)), but after two weeks, I was surprised that I stopped being so obsessed with sex. I thought it was a more natural sex drive...

    I'm pretty sure I was addicted to porn and one of the best decisions of the last years was to stop masturbating. It completely changed my relation to women. I believe that masturbation for some men is an infantile way to have "sex life". For some of them, masturbation it's their only sex life.

    Two month later, I met a girl and she is now my girlfriend. Since I began masturbating (around 14y old) I never stopped having a regular sex life( at least 2-3 times a week) (masturbating, girlfriend, f**k friend).

    Sex is not like eating; more you have sex, more you need sex. Abstinence can be dangerous for some (many) men, but for some others it can be a relieving experience and leads them to chastity (I spoke of mental chastity or spiritual chastity,).

    @Dis: But women objectify themselves, or put themselves in situations where they are objectified. Some of them might even objectify men.

    We don't know why, but it happens. And eevn if it really is "society" that makes them do it, how is one man going to undo that? Why lay that on your shoulders, why worry? Why act a ****ing martyr when nobody gives a ****? It is better to go with the flow, and makes for a much happier person. Watch porn in the safe assurance that it is something that healthy men and women do.

    The alternative is that our majority culture is insane, and that sounds like something a communist might say.

    I have what appears to be a girlfriend now, one with a greater sex drive than I have. I'm quite satisfied in that department, yet I still masturbate to porn. And so does she. It's a fun activity and it relieves stress. Where's the harm?

    @Lori
    You're not in the same situation than Dis.

    Dis seems to see that has a problem, and I think he is right to think this is a problems. I wouldn't have appeared in this discussion if Dis didn't thought this was a problem. I shared my experience in that dept, and in my case, it's really the best decision that I took. And I say this not because it leads me to find love... but because of maturity I took in my sex life during my period of sexual abstinence and other positive externalities I found out during this period of abstinence.

    Also, I can't understand how you can masturbate to porn if you are in love with your girlfriend...

    Who said I was in love with my girlfriend? We've only been together for about a month and a half.

    But that's not the issue.

    Masturbation provides me with an orgasm and nothing more. And sometimes that's all I need.

    Sex with my girlfriend, on the other hand, provides me with emotional and physical intimacy that I could get nowhere else. They're two different things.

    oh and I prefer to keep the thread in general terms. Not about me. I've gone in too much detail about that already . Let's just say I lost focus earlier this year, but I'm back in focus.

    So in general terms I'd have to agree with kitchum. They do objectify themselves, they do bring this upon themselves. going with the flow seems like the best course of action.

    But I do believe a majority of society is insane. But I'm not a communist.

    As for Cronos suggestion. It might be something I try someday as an experiment, but I'm not about to adopt that philosophy any time soon.

    You should be open minded, and free spirited and try it!

    Also, I can't understand how you can masturbate to porn if you are in love with your girlfriend...
    “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

    No kidding. Porn can help smooth the edges when two libidos and schedules don't match up exactly, no matter how in love the two people behind them are.
