Re: [ CHAT] Let's talk about Porn

Hey @RevzZ !

 

 

thanks for joining us. Yes absolutely, a textbook definition is great, because the word porn is thrown around all the time and im sure it can be sort of confusing exactly what it is even if we use the word or use it sometimes

Hey @RevzZ

 

Hmm it's a tricky one to define, i think @RevzZ definition is pretty good though! It's anything that i guess "induces" or makes a person sexually excited. I think that's a good definition because it means it can be different for different people and that this is okay!

What is pornography?

When I hear the word pornography, I first think of videos depicting people having sex. Then, I realised that pornography can also include books which explicitly describe sexual activity and also pictures in certain magazines.

Hey all!

I agree with what you've said @ryvb3 ! My first thought when I think about pornography is about online videos, but I think it definitely includes many other forms too.

I think it is totally normal to watch porn as long as it isn't in excessive amounts that affects your real-life relationships in a negative way.

I do watch porn and at first I remember feeling like it was something that should be kept secret from everyone. Back then, porn wasn't really a topic that was discussed openly with my female friends.

As I've gotten older I've become more comfortable talking about it Smiley Happy

Hmm, it depends on the society and culture you are in, your values and the values of the people you care about to an extent too. So i don't know if I can say its normal but i also don't think I can say it's not normal, because it absolutely depends on the person! 

 

I know when i was younger i would have gotten in HEAPS of trouble for going anywhere near porn because of the beliefs my family had and the culture that i come from. I don't think this helped and i don't agree with it these days. But i do respect the right for a person to choose what is okay or not okay for them.

It is totally normal to watch porn. As @Ben-RO said before, 450 million people watch videos alone every month!!!

I have watched porn before, and as a female i have definitely felt shame about this. I think there is an expactation as a female not to think or talk about sex in the same light that males do, but females watch porn a lot!! probably as much as guys do!!

I think it is a normal thing to be a bit embarrassed about watching porn, as its a secretive and private topic, taboo even. but lots of people do, its in the stats!

2. I believe it is and I think I've heard a rumor that by 15 years old, 100% of people have seen some form of porn. I personally might classify what my friend showed me as "porn" but I should note that I only saw it for a couple seconds because he asked me to look at his screen and I had no idea what to expect. You can expect my shock when I turned around haha.

I don't think I actually felt embarrassed or ashamed only because we were kind of laughing at it (although I was laughing because it was totally unexpected).

I guess it could be a curiosity thing so for teens to be curious about something and not do it would be unlikely.  I don't watch it and I don't think I'dd tell anyone if I did.

 

@j95 can you get the brownlow online???????? Smiley Surprised
