Is internet porn ruining our next generation? Is censorship the answer?

These scholars and experts are at the forefront of this research. Apologies but you will have to listen to at least one of these clips to get what this O.P. is all about.

Is it possible that in sexual matters, the right wing conservatives might be ahead of the left wing in their thinking?

If not, then what should the left do to help us save our children from the indoctrination via internet porn into unhealthy and unwanted sexual habits? Or have them not be able to perform without porn?

I consider myself left wing but I think we may be going a tad far and should move to the right on this issue due to things like you saw in the clips above as well as what is shown in this clip below.

At one time, parents would have closed any shop that gave access to the young to porn. Yet today, parents do not seem to care and as more and more young children get cell phones, parental prohibition will be impossible.

Have parents forgotten how to parent and are men and women willing to allow the status quo to ruin the sexuality of the next generation?

"Censorship reflects society's lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime." - Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart

To date, I have lived by the above quote. I do not lack confidence in our adult population but see this issue as more of a medical one and I am willing to censure for our children's sake.

Some Eastern countries have used censorship to gain control of what their children can access. Should the West do the same?

Are our children worth it?

Regards
DL

It certainly is, and people will argue 'till death that it's somehow "good" for you or "normal".

You're right. Nobody likes to see degrading images and videos of women showing their genitals, commiting gross sexual acts and having unprotected sex out of wed-lock...






...more than I do.

:erm: Exposure is the biggest culprit for anything. You don't know about it unless you see it or are told it exists.

It only helps because you know it's there and you strangely rely on it. Pretty sure sex would be fantastic with porn or not. If you know what you're doing.

That's the crux of it though. How do you know what you're doing? It's not as if schools provide 50-page manuals on all the possible positions or anything like that.

You don't understand. Masturbating to porn is like an endurance exercise. If a guy never watched porn and went to have sex he would finish just by touching the vagina. Like in American Pie.

Porn has been shown to have damaging effects to the psyche. It activates the reward pathway in the brain and releases dopamine, giving it similar properties to addiction and many people do get addicted and require treatment. It gives unrealistic expectations of the human body (for both genders) as well as what to expect from a sexual partner. There's also been a correlation between watching porn and being unsatisfied with your sex life in some Asian country.

Plenty of studies highlight what I've mentioned above, but I don't care enough to link them and I'm sure someone will throw a contradictory study in my face anyway, though I'd disagree with their conclusions. Yes, it's decadent and a shame that our generation utilise the easy access they have to porn but at the same time I don't think censorship is the answer and won't work either way.

Part of the reason it's so popular might be the lackluster sex education we get in the UK. I don't blame everyone for being curious and watching it when there aren't many other sources for us to learn from but porn still has more damaging effects than good.

It's one of many. It helps, yes, but is that the main reason you're watching it?

Dunno how to deal with it, just that it's bad.
You can't use the dopamine argument here. Eating chocolate releases dopamine. Working out releases dopamine too.

From the documentaries I've seen on this I feel like porn is doing a lot of damage especially for boys. They are getting sex ed from porn and struggle to know what women really want and what is appropriate. In a recent documentary the boys thought that girls should let guys *** on their face 'out of respect'. It was sad to hear this because they weren't bad or trying to hurt anyone, they just had no other guidance. So I think there should be a lot more sex ed and better censorship for hardcore porn..

This advantage is definitely not worth all of the costs, imo.

Lol. But that's not necessarily true, but if you're going to reference a comedy film...

Kama Sutra does, but that would technically be porn even if it's in a manual. And you know you're doing it right if it feels good. It's not like sex positions were written in the stars. If a porn director can come up with some fantastic move so can you. That being said I've never been averse to missionary, however that position was discovered.

True. Just take it easy there, big guy :teehee:.

So? With any chemical what matters is the amount and frequency of release. Yes, people do get addicted to working out and chocolate but that's not what we're talking about here, and they certainly do not have the same consequences as porn addiction. The frequent release of dopamine as a result of regular porn both desensitises you and can get you addicted.
