Today porn is a major problem. It’s a personal problem for many and a cultural problem for all. You may think you have not been affected by porn, but you have because it’s embedded in the surrounding culture. The staggering size of the pornography industry, its influence upon the media and the acceleration of technology, paired with the accessibility, anonymity, and affordability of porn all contribute to its increasing impact upon the society.
Researchers findings confirm that men who use porn become controlling, highly introverted, have high anxiety, narcissistic, curious, have low self-esteem, depressed, dissociative, distractible. Ironically, while viewing porn creates momentary intensely pleasurable experiences, it ends up leading to several negative lingering psychological experiences. As men fall deeper into the mental habit of fixating on [pornographic images], the exposure to them creates neural pathways. Researches have also come up with the findings that people who watch porn can have memory loss which will eventually have a major impact on their live. Like a path is created in the woods with each successive hiker, so do the neural paths set the course for the next time an erotic image is viewed. Over time these neural paths become wider as they are repeatedly traveled with each exposure to pornography. They become the automatic pathway through which interactions with woman are routed….They have unknowingly created a neurological circuit that imprisons their ability to see women rightly as created in God’s image
Sex becomes self-serving. It becomes about your pleasure and not the self-giving, mutually reciprocating intimacy that it was designed for. Soft-core pornography has a very negative effect on men as well.
The problem with soft-core pornography is that it’s voyeurism teaches men to view women as objects rather than to be in relationships with women as human beings. Porn squashes the beauty of a real naked woman. For the first time in history, the images’ power and allure have supplanted that of real naked women. Today, real naked women are just bad porn. It makes real sex and even the real world boring in comparison. It particularly anesthetizes the emotional life of a man.
Lastly, Dines records how porn tells a false story about men and women. In the story of porn, women are “one-dimensional” – they never say no, never get pregnant, and can’t wait to have sex with any man and please them in whatever way imaginable (or even unimaginable). On the other hand, the story porn tells about men is that they are “soulless, unfeeling, a moral life-support systems for erect penises who are entitled to use women in any way they want. These men demonstrated zero empathy, respect, or love for the women they have sex with…
So please if you are into this act, please stop. Unless you are a PORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN. Thanks
