Why is porn... Watch
Detecting a game of semantics here. Most definitions of the word exclude man-made inventions as being natural, so it is true that pornography is not natural because it is man-made. However, humans are themselves also a product of natural causes just like all other animals, and there is no reason particularly to single out what humans do as 'unnatural'. Because of this, I think it isn't fair to call anything man-made unnatural; all that occurs in a natural universe is, in some sense, natural. It's certainly not a good reason to condemn a thing.
The health risks have been picked up, anecdotally though. But in large quantities I should add. The main problems with getting empirical evidence are lack of control groups (everyone seems to watch porn!!), lack of funding for non-HIV related sex research and the recent (last few years) acceptance of sex and by extension, porn addiction, by the medical community.
Yep, completely agree on the last part. The issue is that it's easy to binge on porn and develop compulsive behaviour towards it.
Watching sex in a computer screen is not natural but neither it is writing, using clothes, eating with a spoon, fork and knife. Nor it living in houses or going to school. But it does not really hurt, does it?
Just naming loads of unnatural things that don't hurt us doesn't prove that things being unnatural isn't enough reason to cause us aversion. Especially considering sex is so deeply ingrained into our brains. Writing doesn't really change or affect anything we're biologically meant to do.
Haha I wasn't playing semantics at all. By unnatural I was referring to its relatively sudden introduction into our lives and our lack of evolution and adaptation to it. I wasn't condemning porn (in this sense anyway) because it is man-made but because we aren't wired for it.
Why is it when you watch a porn video, it seems really hot and you're really into it, then as soon as you orgasm, you look at the video and it's literally disgusting and can sometimes make you feel sick?
