Hollywood porn: a bad influence

Rule 34 of the internet states: “if it exists, there is porn of it”. Summing up the effects of porn seems to be an impossible task. The advent of free internet pornography has made it one of the most widely accessible and pervasive industries in the world – apparently everyone is sneaking a peek at some online bonking.

In 2009 researchers at the University of Montreal failed to find any men in their 20s who had never seen porn, while it is estimated that six out of 10 women have watched it. According to online statistics, the average age for a child to first view pornography is 11. So it would be fair to state that hardcore heterosexual porn has an impact on the sexual development of a lot of people.

No doubt porn has revolutionised sex, opening people’s eyes to a staggering variety of ways to bring each other off, but some of the influences of porn have become very negative. Think about it, if a woman watches porn, she will be confronted by shaved vaginas, clown make up and demeaning behaviour.

Pornography is a circus, ranging from the laughable to the uncomfortable and even disturbing, rarely finding a healthy middle ground. Women look like cheap plastic dolls that have come to life.

The effects of porn on men can be even more set in stone. There is an obvious pressure that “size matters” in porn; anything less than a clown shoe of a phallus is something to be ashamed of.

Perhaps the strangest thing about porn is the lack of emotion. Sex occurs almost spontaneously, as if being physically attractive will automatically make every other human being on the planet want to have sex with you. Obviously, this doesn’t work in the real world, as even having a drunken one night stand leads to gaining a small understanding of someone’s personality.

Porn needs to be viewed as what it really is: silly entertainment, rather than educational or representative in any way. Sex doesn’t have to be soppy “lovemaking” in order to be enjoyable for everyone, but it shouldn’t be pornographic banging either.
