“All men watch porn and it is not bad for them”

“All men watch porn, and it is not bad for them”

This is the name of the article written by a Montreal university professor based on his two year research study.

I’m not even sure where to begin…  The only remotely positive thing I can see this article doing is perhaps attempting to reduce authentic guilt some men may have with this addiction, and that’s hardly positive at all.

Assuming that he interviewed mostly university students, the short article paints many “matter- of- fact” arguments as facts… (and I quote)

“…his research had refuted views that pornography enthusiasts seek out in life what they see in X-rated videos, leading to sexual abuse or denigration of women.

“It would be like saying that vodka ads lead to alcoholism,” the sociologist said.

The author further “…dismissed suggestions that avid pornography enthusiasts seek to imitate in life what they see on screens, or that they watch X-rated videos in an attempt to purge vile sexual impulses.

“Both arguments are worthless,” he said.   Men make a distinction between their real lives and sexual fantasies…”

This is what passes as a internet “hit” on Men’s Health.

There is a “Focus on the Family” article that takes another view on this topic and points out the dangers of this addiction.

“Not everyone who sees porn will become addicted to it. Some will just come away with toxic ideas about women, sex, marriage and children. That kind of damage is bad enough. And porn isn’t the only ingredient in addiction. Usually, those who become addicted have some kind of emotional opening that allows the addiction to really take root.”

Also interesting, as this short article continues, is the “Five Stages of Addiction” – early exposure, addiction, escalation, desensitization and acting out sexually.

Read both the articles.  Read what the Bible says.

 

We shirk our moral responsibility and family responsibility when we start an affair with pornography.  I told my son that pornography is like a handcuff.  I believe this.

All men don’t watch porn, and it’s not good for them.
