Do you watch porn? Or better, do you consume pornography?
Every second more than 30,000 people watch porn on line. As you read this more than 28,000 people are watching porn. I stopped watching porn quite a while ago. I felt it was the right thing to do. I slowly realized that every time you watch porn, you are creating a need, you are creating a demand for “filmed prostitution” because, in reality, that’s what porn really is.
Pornography comes from: “pornē” which stands for prostitute; and “graphia” which stands for documentation. Of course, you should not stop watching porn just because of the word’s etymology.
Porn is a genre; it is not about dreams, “Eros”, love or healthy sexual “communication”. Porn is everything about male domination of women, not only in the sexual practice itself but as a way of acting, as a way of being, think of it as a gender hierarchy.

What Goes Live? What Is Sexual?

Before I stopped watching porn, I asked myself “what is sexual?” What are the characteristics, the features for defining something sexual? I was not referring to my preferences but in general terms. “What are the things we define as sexual?” Simple, everything men find arousing. Let’s try with few example: men find it arousing to rape a woman, to choke a woman, to see a child cry? Then it is sexual. And if you browse a porn gallery on the web, it is common to find the humiliation category side by side with the abuse category, crime category, and many others.
I want to concentrate on the “classic” porn, the “classic” sex scene, which I think should be called, sex with no hands. If you watched a bit of video you may have noticed that porn is basically a sex scene with no hands involved. There is a strong reason for this. Hugging, kissing, caring, petting are not things captured on a camera, what cameras are interested is the penetration. What people watching porn are interested is the penetration. To make it clear, imagine the scene: the penis is inside the woman, somewhere (let’s not be picky). To have close ups of the scenes there must be no things obstructing the view, no kissing, no touching, no hugging, no hands. The only body parts really touching each other are the penis and the part being penetrated.

No hands involved
Before I watched porn, the fantasy of a sexual intercourse would include, the location, the music, the build-up, and so on. After porn? Everything changed. The influence of those videos, of those images, changed my thinking, my acting, my desires. The ritual changes and it is shaped according to what I watched!
Is It Only Porn?
I started this article with porn to catch your attention, but the reality is that everything you watch invades you! Everything you watch changes the way you act, the way you behave, the way you think and most of the time you are not aware of it.
If the TV program you watch generates negative mood experiences (e.g. anxiety, sadness, anger, disgust), then these experiences will affect how you interpret events in your own life, what types of memories you recall, and how much you will worry about events in your own life.

This Study investigated the effect of the emotional content of television news programs on mood state and the catastrophizing of personal worries. Subjects were divided into three groups and they were shown 14-min TV news bulletins. One was made entirely of negative news items, one was made of entirely positive news items (e.g. people winning the lottery, recovering from illness, etc.), and one was made up of items that were emotionally neutral. They then showed these bulletins to three different groups of people. As the researchers predicted, those who watched the negative news bulletin all reported being significantly more anxious and sadder after watching the bulletin than those people who watched either the positive or neutral news. The study noticed that TV news programs can exacerbate a range of personal concerns, even if they are not specifically relevant to the content of the program.

Watching porn changes the way you accept yourself, the way you see yourself. Watching TV does the same thing. It would be possible to imagine a world of “Barbies and Ken”, a world full of instructed, guided, manipulated thinking people, where expression, creativity, it is not just limited, it is never exploited. Stop watching porn, and limit the time spent in front of the TV. Explore the world, explore your city, talk to the people you live with. Learn; think; create; destroy. Live your life!!!
