I think for most people making love is a private matter, but of course humans are a curious lot! We all want to know how we compare to others so pornography satisfies a curiosity. Beyond that it can be used as a tool for arousal. Myself, I've never need the extra help. I think sex feels good enough to want it all the time! LOL! Anyway it's big business 30 billion a year in the USA alone, I think. Interestingly the Romans were into it as well. Did you know the city of Pompeii had 41 brothels in a population that was 6,000! They had phallic symbols carved into the streets pointing toward them. The walls were decorated with copulating couples and orgies and even gay sex!
I think it is a necessary necessity. I'm all for it, and quite frankly I think it is a great help to many people/lovers who have trouble expressing themselves. As for myself, the only "social issues" behind it, are the ones being invented by people who are insecure.
Porn to me, is like any other drug or habit. I do not believe there is anything wrong with it, as long as all people (not kids...) give thier consent. Some people become obessed and it distorts their view. Some people could take it or leave it. Some people see it for what it is, entertainment.....not real life... I do not like being chosen scoend to porn....
I say to each his own. I don't place any judgements on anyone for enjoying or not enjoying it. It has its place. I think like most things it can be abused, missued and in the wrong hands destructive. However so can alcohol, and I enjoy a glass of wine every now and then but then again I am a responsible adult. However take that same glass of wine and give it to an alcoholic or underage teenager and.....well u know the rest. It's all relative.
Yeah, me three. I personally prefer a little more left to the imagination, but I don't have a problem with anyone else using porn as long as the porn in question involves consenting adults and the viewer uses it in appropriate ways.
It DOES bother me that such a high percentage of porn actresses were physically and/or sexually abused as children or young women, but that's a problem with the industry, not with porn itself. I knew some girls in college who decided to make themselves an amateur porno on a whim and they were all well adjusted people and had fun making it. Others, of course, are not so lucky.
i find more issue with violence than i do with porn. the social impact is far worse with the desensitization of violence .than it is with sex. we are born naked . animals having sex is Americas funniest videos . people having sex is porn.primitive culture nudity on discovery channel is acceptable but attractive nudity is pornographic. moral based hypocrisy.
It serves a purpose for a sneaky 15 minutes now and again, makes me feel a little guilty afterwards, but I dont think it becomes a problem unless it becomes an obsession. If you are spending 4 hours a night looking for porn, then it is ruining your life, if it helps you get off a couple of times a week then I cant see a major issue.
Perhaps if I was to delve a lot deeper, I could say that it exploited people and supported drug habits etc etc, but I tend to think about cheerier things.
I think for a lot of people, porn actually stops you from acting on sexual desires. I mean, if you want to cheat on someone but you're at home looking at porn and masturbating, you will probably finish up yourself and not want to cheat anymore
For example, without porn, I would probably try to hump everything that walked when I left my house lol j/k j/k
Obviously, with anything, there are some people that are addicted to porn. But no different than anything else.
Here in the U.S., porn exists because we are so sheltered. In other countries, nudity and sex aren't so taboo.
Love the Idea of my first porn hub :b, and in class we were only talking about porn itself, it doesnt matter what country or where it started, just over all....Thanks everyone for all of your opinions, its really helping me a lot
im talking discovery channel nudity .and consenting adult porn. the other type so called third world porn which is made not only in the third world. is one of the most heinous despicable crimes that occur in this world. and should be punished in the most brutal and public of ways. esp when children are the victims.
I would be in favor of banning it outright. However, there is the problem of making laws that are unenforceable; I think this would be one that would be difficult (if not impossible) to enforce. Therefore, I would let community standards prevail. Some communities would be stricter about it than others. That would give people more options about what kind of community they would like to live in.
Those that traffic kiddie porn, whether actual or simulated, is (or would be) criminal. I would make death a possible penalty for kiddie porn.
I think women are beautiful...No other "anything" on the planet can match...or compare to all of their beauty (a big emphasis on all) If some of them would like to present their "wares" in obvious fashion...who am I to complain!?
lol... it is the same with men too! As a woman, sometimes I admire looking at women in terms of their beauty, of course physical and the aura that they project, like when they smile and wink their eyes...could melt everyones heart...
Well the first time I showed upon the set I was completely unprepared without a name or anything. So as I stood there waiting for the director, a chic walked past and told her friend that I was nasty. Another chic walked past and muttered something about how something was filthy. And I put it all together and ran with it.
I once starred in a porno when I was younger and much sexier than I am now. It was called " Redneck Does Malice", man I was knackered for a week. I am still available in case any porn sites are reading this and looking new guys, my old name was Horn Dog
you bet, the forums are getting funnier and interesting and people are just changing. I never know there are lots of pornstar here, I will start my own website soon porn sites, I will rehire them again redeneckman and bloodnlatex, I know they gonna earn me money so i dont need to write her anymore, wanna join me ms. beautiful myownworld?
I am really desperate... i feel betrayed, cheated... and still he says he loves me, i am everything he wants and needs in his life... but what he is doing hurts so much...so not myself... i hope you understand he cannot live without porn...
Okay, about a couple of years ago when Kevin Smith was talking about his film, "Zack and Miri Make a Porno", he said the main inspiration behind the film was because he always watches porn in the morning purely for it's artistic value, and NOTHING more. Well, after hearing him say...
Why are so many people "offended" by nudity?Does anyone else ever wonder why we are so offended by nudity? We are born that way and yet many people are repulsed by seeing another human being naked. As a society we seem strangely tolerant of seeing beautiful people’s flesh and less so if...
