Porn a Fantasy (aka a Craptastic Non-Reality)

Fantasy. That’s what porn is, a fantasy. Let’s be clear, porn isn’t real. Sex is real. Porn is like a horrible tv show, where all they do is have sex. While sex is a natural, beautiful thing (or so I hear), porn distorts that.

Porn is product. It’s something people consume in our ever growing need for instant gratification. And it just so happens to be available anyway you want it. Sounds nice, right? Well to me it sounds like a fast food chain. It’s never as good as you want it to be. At least that’s my experience with both porn and most fast food chains.

Porn is cheap imitation of the real deal. It gets dressed up, so you can’t see the harm in it. It’s available whenever you want, so you don’t have to worry about those pesky human interactions. But at the end of time ‘indulging’, you’re just as alone as before. You’re just as disconnected, if not more, as before.

I’ve posted stuff from Fight the New Drug on here. They like to say that porn kills love. And I agree. But porn does more than that. It kills intimacy, and not just physical intimacy. Your experiences impact your ideas of intimacy. So if you watch porn, you’ll probably want to try it and all that influences what you think is acceptable physical intimacy.

I want you to think about something. Watching porn is basically you connecting with a screen. You are bonding with an inanimate object. The more you connect with the image on the screen, the less you connect with real people. That is the loss of intimacy. You have this false connection instead of a real, meaningful one.

You don’t have to interact with people to get porn, but you do for sex. That interact with a real person leading up to sex is as important as the actual act. Make connections people.

I’m gonna have to cut this post short. I’ve been sick all weekend and it’s hard to stick to a topic. My brain just can’t focus.

Here’s what to remember: Porn ≠ Sex. Porn is a fantasy. Sex is reality. Porn kills intimacy. You need real human interaction. Get out from behind your screens and interact with someone.
