I do not view porn as just “business.” This parallels my opinion that sex is not just another action, such as touching your elbow; there is something inhernetly and essentially different about the action. I am sad to see sex exploited everywhere on tv and in the media; what has happened to the specialness of it? Sex is too often seen as a simple casual act with no meaning attatched to it, and I think this has a detremental effect on our society, especially the women.
After viewing porn, men report lesser feelings for their significant others and hold them to higher expectations and standards. Obviously, this isnt fair for the women, and it puts them under a new pressure to become more ‘slutty’ to live up to this pressure. I go to a school where I see SO many girls with eating disorders, and it truly makes me sad for them. (I’m not saying that porn=eating disorders, but its a contributor for the general pressure put on girls in America today).
So, I’m glad that you didnt decide to follow that path into the porn industry, since it cheapens the potential specialness that sex holds. And if you dont think that sex is special, then explain all of the exceptional rules for it across many cultures, and most of all, explain the horrible feeling that girls get after they ‘hook up.’ Even if men don’t see it (in which case if they hook up or have a one-night-stand they wouldnt by definition), but more often than not, girls go crying to their girlfriends about it, and if they assume the male’s point of view of sex, a lot of times they end up depressed and feeling very washed up and used. All you need to do is pay attention to the reactions that follow the actions that occur due to the common acceptance of casual sex as seen on tv, heard in music, and perpetuated through porn.
This may not be the place to put this post, seeing as its on a ‘testosterone’ website, but I just had to throw in my two cents.
