Women Vs Porn

Don Jon is a film is about a guy who has everything going for him. He’s got the body, the girl, the car, and the looks, so getting sex is not an issue. But for him, nothing beats a good porno. So much so that even after a night of doing the horizontal tango he’ll sneak away and press play. When his girl of the moment finds out he still watches porn – apparently a juvenile thing to do – they break up. She believes watching porn is, like, surhhh disgusting. This got me thinking, is it cheating if you watch porn and masturbate to it if you’re in a relationship?

Pornography is the portrayal of a sexual subject matter for the purpose of sexual arousal – thankyou Wikipedia. So, why do we have to feel guilty about something we enjoy?

Women applauded themselves during the sexual revolution with the introduction of the contraceptive pill. What do we want? Casual sex. When do we want it? All the time! Women were now more freewheeling and sex was something to be celebrated. Sex on films, apparently, doesn’t deserve the same applause. Because porn stars aren’t powerful working women, they clearly are just sluts, right?

In reality, the porn industry is actually one of the only workplaces where women get paid more than men. So why aren’t we celebrating that? Women have the upper hand in something that is fun and exciting and not some boring office job. 

But when a guy watches porn and he has a girlfriend, apparently it’s disgusting.

Why would you watch that when you have the real thing? Because the real thing doesn’t feature kinky and unbelievable situations. It doesn’t always have lace and ties. The real thing doesn’t always have a girl who actually wants to wrap her lips around it. 

Porn puts the sexual fantasies of every man and woman into a reality. Porn for most people was their first girlfriend or boyfriend. Porn - you can enjoy the company of and receive pleasure from. All you want in your other half.

What is it about porn that turns girls away from it? Is it the fact that the movie stars of the films have better technique? Don’t beat yourself up too much about that, I mean they need to be good if they are getting paid for it. It’s just like seeing an Olympic swimmer win a race; just as not everyone can be that fast in the pool, not everyone can be that flexible in the bed.

Pornography is one of the highest grossing industries. I bet if we had a slogan like that underneath 1# porn site, it would receive more respect. “But honey, I’m just contributing to the ever grossing and women empowering industry.”

When a guy watches girls on film, touches himself and enjoys it, is it as bad as him touching a real girl and getting pleasure from it? Virtual cheating perhaps but moral breaking – not even close. Nothing you enjoy and benefit from should make you feel guilty. Watch it, play it, enjoy it.
