Re: [ CHAT] Let's talk about Porn

@RevzZ i think thats a very important point. watching or reading porn can help with exploration of themes and ideas without needing to find someone to help us do that. we can individually explore and achieve satisfaction.
Which lectures are these? what an interesting topic to study, its definitely not spoken about enough at school in my opinion.

[ Edited ]

What are some of the benefits that porn provides?

 

It can teach people about their sexuality and what they be attracted to me, it can teach people about sex (although this can pretty unrealistic but depends on what you're looking at i guess) and can help with self expression, it can also like give people ideas and stuff in relationships  I guess.

It would probably help people understand what sex is and how it works... Maybe?

It can be really unrealistic, and may give people the wrong idea about the human body

Re: [ CHAT] Let's talk about Porn

@Craycray17 Hmm...that gets me thinking. Perhaps it encourages a bit of individuation at an age where people begin to think about it? Maybe even gives them a way to experience it without having to try and force it in real life, especially if it involves other people.
These were in criminal psychology lectures btw. It was only covered briefly and honestly one of the few times education has discussed it.

Negatives could be that it gives people wrong expectations when they want to have sexual intercourse

Re: [ CHAT] Let's talk about Porn

What are some negatives that can arrise from watching porn?

 

hmmmm. well definitely the fact that nearly every porn star is skinny, tanned, with huge boobs, and look like models. that is SO unrealistic!!!! The guys in porn always seem to be ripped, hugely muscly and this can also create huge pressure on men and women to look like this.

Secondly, and hugely important, porn can really create unreal expectations of sex and intimacy. Some are completely "male-dominating-female" and whilst this may be an interest of a lot of people, it is not the most realisic way to depict sex. A lot of males and females may feel that this is their 'gender-role' in sexual activity, which can de degrading, humiliating or pressuring for anyone. 

 

I think that unless an open mind is kept about what porn may be depicting, porn can be harmful to ones beleif about how to treat the people that they are engaging in sexual activites with
