    Hey all,

    I've been looking into this topic for a while now and I cannot argue against the scientific evidence how harmful pornography is. I believe it affects people in different ways, some more, some less, but I am convinced, it has more negative effect. People have many opinions, but they often fail to check the facts.

    Bottom line is, that porn rewires the brain the way drugs like cocaine do.
    It fuels modern day slavery and sex trafficking.
    By every view one is contributing to the demand, whether one pays for it or not.

    I am starting this discussion in order to find people who are AGAINST pornography and would like to raise awareness. This is a shout-out for all those affected or those who want to know more about this new drug.
    When it comes down to it - we are horny and need to release that hornyness in some manner.

    What i do know is that it'll affect your chances of getting hard in bed so has links with ED/impotence - So it's best to avoid it.

    3) The professional end with the "big names" largely won't, but the amateur scenes with people just starting out is a bit rough. Dunno if it's necessarily as extreme as sex trafficking/slavery in the majority of cases, but drugs and coercion abound bois.
    So basically just like the rest of the entertainment industry? All those pop stars, mega stars even, like Whitney Houston (PBUH)? Amy Winehouse (PBUH)? Michael Jackson (PBUH)? Jimi Hendrix (PBUH)? Janis Joplin (PBUH)? Jim Morrison (PBUH)? Sid Vicious (PBUH)? Kurt Cobain (PBUH)? Prince (PBUH)? Whitney Houston's daughter (PBUH)?

    It's the same with movie stars and TV stars and artists (painters etc) and basically everything else in the entertainment industry.

    Even authors such as Stephen King and Charles Dickens had serious drug problems.

    What do we do now?

    It doesn't. Infrequent ejaculation does affect your chances of getting hard in bed.

    If it did affect non-addicts, ED would have been a pandemic right now. The common cold who?

    Lmao, whoever pays for porn has been duped, considering the almost infinite number of free porn sites out there :lol:
    21 million people bought 25 (many bought the singles, too) even though it's available online everywhere, including legal streaming.

    All "amature" videos from commericial porn studios are fake, just like all "reality TV" shows are.
    In the sense that as soon as they're paid they're no longer amateur, yes, they're fake, but by any other measure you can find proper amateur videos from commercial studios. Well, that's what a friend told me

    If there was no porn or it was suddenly banned you'd probably start seeing a lot more sexual assaults against women as you have removed an outlet men can use for sexual frustration..

    most likely female porn stars have indirectly saved quite a few of you ladies from being raped/sexually assaulted...

    Because of porn I am no longer attracted to women, men or even jetpacked anime-badgers. Chloe Khan could be standing there naked and all I could offer her is a hand shake and an apology. There can be the 'oofty' recognition, but nothing dickwise. This is why the internet should only have Wikipedia, be in black and white and go off at 8.pm so we can sing the national anthem.

    However the type of porn users i'm referring to are the hardcore/addicted ones that watch it everyday for years on end. I'm quite sure they'd feel it hard getting 'hard' to a 3D woman compared to a 2D one.

    1) Majority of it does, hentai's a bit of a niche market m8. Drawn stuff in itself doesn't have any trouble for the people involved in making it though, sure.

    2) Dopamine, innit. Similar to anything you can get addicted to, you use it and then you're brain's like "yas". Food does the same, so do hard drugs. You can start getting trouble if you're using porn very regularly and overdoing it. I'll just lob a link that explains it somewhat better than I can:

    3) The professional end with the "big names" largely won't, but the amateur scenes with people just starting out is a bit rough. Dunno if it's necessarily as extreme as sex trafficking/slavery in the majority of cases, but drugs and coercion abound bois.
    1. So hentai, or similar forms of non-human involved porn, isn't bad then?

    2. Keyword: addicted. Not all people who look at porn are addicted to it. You don't have to 'use porn very regularly and overdo it'. This is like saying that chocolate is bad - this would be true if someone eats too much of it, but there isn't a harm of having chocolate in moderation.

    3. There will still be professional porn actors who are not abused. Why should we disregard the entirety of pornography became some people involved in it are abused?

    I dont agree with your bottom line.

    How much of the porn industry uses sex traffickers? To combat child and sex abuse it should be better to legalise it and regulate it than let it float about on Tor.

    I just realised you directed this not at me. Id like to ask if you think watching porn (and now perhap, using a sex robot) makes people more likely to commit sexual related violence?

    Sadly many didn't check the facts. Who don't want to believe, there is no reason to argue that the grass is blue if it's green.

    Why would one compare the effect of drugs to food? Can you not see the contrast?

    Secondly, I wonder if people who watch porn and saying they are not addicted ever tried stopping. If it's too challenging, then there is something wrong.

    Here is one of several statistics from this year about the industry. It's focused on stuff produced in US only! 12 billion dollars a year. http://www.dailynews.com/2007/06/05/...ve-the-valley/
    this is just one ''small'' figure i've seen around.
    There is demand. People are willing to pay and support it. Not ever caring how destructive it is for people involved in production, or down the line, people addicted and with destroyed lives, unable to lead a healthy human to human relationship.

    I understand that we can't talk about all types of porn with the same tone. Say can't compare the harm in making manga to making hardcore film. But as bottom line, please distinguish between what is too much. Let's not normalise and accept just everything as time goes by and more people are okey with things violence, treating women as a last animal, etc.

    You can get addicted to anything so it's nonsensical to then say that particular thing is bad, just like how you can't say water is bad cuz you can die drinking it.
