Skepticism: Porn... Addiction?
I've been a skeptic on this for some time. Manly because of the one thing a good friend told me, 'There is a difference between Fantasy and Reality.'

Many times, should you search up something about the word 'Porn' you will find plenty of things that say it is an 'addiction' and will cause your 'life to go to ruin' or even, 'Your health will decline if you masturbate or even watch porn', and finally 'Your sexual life will be tattered and you will never know what it means to have intimacy during Sex. You'll see for pleasure and to carry through with what you see on the evil porn sites.'

As you can imagine, when I first searched up about Porn (Shelter child gets curious about the huge news about something called 'porn' Laugh out load ) I was confused by sexual acts, I am asexual myself and find it hard to find sexual pleasure or 'turned on' for lack of better turn. But I was told by so many that now I would go into the inevitable 'porn addiction' and how now I was forever going to 'Hell' or whatever.

As a teen, this scared me. Before I ever found such a thing as 'Skepticism'. But as I think about it, and hearing how many regulations US puts on porn, I can't help but feel skeptic to how much is told. A google search of 'Lies About Porn' only leads you to how you have an 'addiction'. It seems anything about Porn, rather then searching up the videos, means you have an 'addiction'.

This was were my skeptic take on it took place. The fact that if a man is even remotely married and is aroused by said videos then he is 'addicted' to it and needs to seek counseling which will cost much money, more possible should they go to a church of all places. To me this 'addiction' many had sounded more like a cope out of get more money off of people.

One article I read said 'porn addiction' did not exist. A person watches as much as is moderated for them. Such as some people need to consume more food then others to be healthy or how some people need to exercise more then others because their body is made that way. Basically put, 'Everyone is born, but not everyone is made the same.'

All and all, I know too much of one thing is bad for you. This is true for a lot of things, (Though the religious seem to think the more religion they have the better they are.) But not everything can be classified as an 'addiction' a word people tend to throw around. If I read books for a week no stop do I have a 'Book Addiction'? Sure my social bar went down a notch or two in the sims meter, but to say it's an 'Addiction' tends to show how much a person knows, in my personally opinion. Thus is why I am a skeptic on this.

But, what do you guys think? Is this a real threat or is it just another sell out for place to get you to pay them money for a phony addiction?

Who says I am a 'porn enthusiast'? Because if I wanted to be mocked at and called things I'm not I'd go to youtube. Smile

But thank you for your time to read over and reply.

RE: Skepticism: Porn... Addiction?
I'd say addiction is when you're obsessed with something to an unhealthy degree, so that you can't live without it and so that it impacts on your life negatively.

So if you were in your room watching porn all day and jacking off and never came out... that'd be addiction, IMO, if the porn was the reason why you were doing that.

But as long as you can keep it under control, I don't see it as unhealthy in the same way as cigarettes are unhealthy. Cigarettes will literally kill you. Porn... not so much.

I like porn myself Smile I don't watch it helluva often, and finding good porn is like finding rare treasure... not easy and you probably expend more effort than the pleasure you get from it. But still. It's fun every now and then.

We'll love you just the way you are

It can be dangerous. A guy was recently squashed under a pile of porn. Consider

RE: Skepticism: Porn... Addiction?
That is what I was getting at, too much of one thing I bad. I myself find it hard to find pleasure is jacking off, heck I can't even picture myself in a sexual relationship. Never felt the need nor drive for it.

This was mainly a wonder of mine, as you know it seems every other which way they are telling you if you see one sexual picture your 'addicted'. And as such I'm thinking, 'So just by me accidentally walking in on my parents 'having fun' I am addicted to... porn?'

American Psychological Association has something interesting to say on this subject.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
