I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, so I had to look up what that was.

I'm not sure why the Pope's picture pulls up when you fancy-search "scat fetish" and I'm not quite sure I want to.
So I took the plunge and clicked one of those pics, and it turns out that Pope Francis referred to the media's "fake news" & smut obsession as "Corpophagy", the practice of eating "excrement". Basically, if you consume eyeball-driven media, you are eating shit.

He also said that the journos covering the Curia's infighting and financial scandals risked becoming corpophilies, which the journos took to mean "talk shit, eat shit".

And, of course, some right-of-center members of the Church have claimed that Frank's Mafia administration tells priests that disagree with them to "consume excrement" and leave, while others think that the Pope is trying to normalize disgusting fetishes.

So hey, thanks for reminding me of this crudshow.

I think people that think porn is bad are too deep into internet circles. Most people that watch porn also have sex. Masturbating is NOT sex and I don't know how you can think one thing replaces the other one.

Yeah, if we're talking some chris chan type exceptional guy, of course, porn is detrimental to him, but that's on him for being socially exceptional, not on porn. Videogames are also detrimental to him and we are not banning videogames.

For most people, porn is just what you do when you DON'T want to have sex. You want to masturbate 10 minutes and move on with your life. You want a quick one. And I'm telling you, I don't need porn for a quick one. Before porn was easily accesible people masturbated to fucking catalogues and whatever the fuck was on TV. Shit I masturbated to whatever the fuck was on TV. People masturbate on the shower. It's a thing that happens.

Most people don't have a problem with porn and porn isn't detrimental to their lives. The question is flawed on itself because nothing is bad for society because society is fucking huge. Some people will benefit and some will not, and acting as if you know which side will benefit more on an hypothetical situation is dumb. We can debate the merits of, whatever, open borders, anarchy, legalizing prostitution, and that debate is a long list of pros and cons, but this thread is just people projecting too much about not going out and trying to blame porn.

On an unrelated note, I don't think staying home is that bad and "weakening the desire to go out and see some titties, enjoy life and start a family" sounds almost redpilly. Some people are fucking degenerates for staying inside. Some people are fucking degenerates for staying outside. Balance is a thing. Porn does not disrupt that balance.

All porn should be available because prohibition has never worked, but the only kinds of porn that should ever be promoted must be ridiculous.

Exploiting children/animals/etc has obvious consequences, but if your fetish is insane and stupid, it should be encouraged as much as possible to get those deviants sedated and kept out of the gene pool.

Also, softcore is the most degenerate kind, because Instagram and Snapchat must be abolished and their CEOs guillotined. In Minecraft.

There's always one I haven't read before.

Reminds me of Ohio fetish.

Pornography, arguably, is bad for society. Other things that are bad for society in the same way:
-Alcohol
-Fatty foods
-Tobacco
-Video games
-Television
-Movies
-Books
-Recreational sex

Fortunately, most people understand that human beings are not mindless automata who exist solely to optimize functions, and that behavior should only be checked when it becomes self-destructive to a serious degree.
 
Pornography has always existed and had a demand in society, even in events here it was prescribed there were always pioneers who would find a work around to limitations put in place.

With that said, I don't see it as much as a social evil as a potential mental health problem for future generations of men and women and here are the reasons why.

24/7 availability has been made possible by the advent of smartphones and reliable internet connections.

Long gone are the yester years of either having to buy your own stuff, or in the case of most teenagers of the era swipe a mag/dvd/vhs or take the time and potential risk of discovery to get in on a computer. In this dark age, it took some prior planning to actually be able to view pornography, and in most cases depending on availability it was near to next impossible for some age groups.

Now you can get it on your smart phone for free from any number of streaming services, and its essentially as hardcore as you want it. And this is where the problem for me lies. A lot of younger kids are being exposed earlier and earlier to pornography, and with the proliferation of kids being given their own smart phones and other consumer electronics it's going to create a perfect storm of porn addictions.

The science is in already in terms of pornographic exposure, and it's not good. Long term pornography use creates a negative feedback loop whereby the viewer in order to get a larger hit of brain chemicals must consume harder pornography, and I think this is already pretty evident with the proliferation of ever more extreme forms of pornography become more mainstream.

It also has the detriment of reducing self control, by constantly rewarding the brain, and constantly being able to access stuff. This with the mind a of a developing child, is going to lead to sexual problems and deviancy later on in life, or unrealistic expectations about sex where porn is considered what reality should be and the act of sex is affected by this.

Along with this you will see an uptick in depression rates as young adults, because the brains are not hard wired to receive constant bombardment of stimuli, and as a result of that it has a dampening effect that effectively can create hard wired dampening throughout.

It also negatively effects the development of healthy relationships, as teens who should be out there in the world trying to get laid, will instead by at home not socializing and not forming meaningful relationships or learning how to socialize as adults. When they do finally get into relationships, there will be unhealthy expectations, and this in itself will lead again to more social problems.

tldr; A slice of cake in one sitting once a week is perfectly healthy, eating a whole cake several times a day, week in week out, isn't.

If all performers are consenting adults and no-one is permanently hurt then it's all fine and dandy. Much better to allow something that people would do anyway, than to limit their freedom of expression.

Like Lao Tze said, "Strict government breeds constituents that lie to their rulers more than a loose government".
And like Nietzsche said, "I have never chosen to not step in to the waters of truth because they would be too dirty, but sometimes because they were too shallow".

A friend’s ex bf has no idea how to pleasure a woman because he just tries to act out the porn he watches, which glosses over consent and tries to make a woman’s discomfort sexy. (Both people are supposed to feel aroused before you get started. Don’t act like a jackhammer. She’s not ‘supposed’ to feel pain. Don’t assume that you know what she wants more than she does just because you’ve watched more porn.)

I think this is a problem. I wouldn’t argue for a blanket ban on porn, but I do think the viewers (especially the naive ones) need to be given some kind of distinction between what is and isn’t realistic sex. Communication is treated like a taboo in a lot of these videos when it’s actually a fundamental thing.

Eh, I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with porn. If consumed in moderation and people are reminded that it doesn't really represent real life, it's really not a big deal.

That being said, it's kinda worrying how many degenerative stuff there is out there. Stuff revolving around incest or other creepy relationships seem to be in abundance on a lot of porn sites, and the fact there's a market for it worries me.

I bet you there's at least one executive out there who probably lays awake at night wondering how his life turned into one involving profiting over videos of boys wanting to impregnate their moms.

Yeah, about that all that incest porn....

Here is an unpopular opinion post on reddit (that became very popular). Then there is a pornhub spokesperson who said it was an antisemetic conspiracy theory that pornhub was pushing this because the owners are jewish.

The problem is, nobody had mentioned jews up to that point.

That spokesperson makes it seem like there is a conspiracy with that bizarre response.


Other have already articulated my opinion on the porn thing.

I’m worried about the exposure younger people have to all the fucked up things out there.

People keep saying that porn has no effect on sexual relations but I can’t help but hear of how things like anal have become the thing to do regardless if the chick is into it or not.

Apparently, and this is second hand information, even into the late 90s prostitutes and escorts found requests for butt stuff to be relatively rare.

I think that trying to determine the sexual habits of the average American by the behaviors of johns with prostitutes is extremely bad information gathering.
Especially given that I suspect that the wage of the average professional dominatrix/dominator has likely gone down over the same window (as S&M has become less taboo to discuss with your SO and, as a result, more people are experimenting with that sort of thing at home rather than having to hire someone to do it to them).

I did mention it was second hand.

Giving the source some benefit of the doubt : their logic was that hookers experience the uncensored sexual male Id.

Point is that butt stuff is a great way to end up with incontinence other horrible things and it’s not as pleasurable for women as it is for men on the receiving... ahem end.

Yet, here we are.

Idk how true any of the anecdotes in that thread are but it’s hilarious to me to see TERFS and Radfems talk about the good old days and how men were so much nicer then.

( I do agree that the farther you go back in the decades the simpler tastes were.)

I remember people like these gals behaving like proto- SJWs in the 90s.

James Joyce had a fart fetish and was into buttfucking his wife. E.H Lawrence wrote self-insert porn of himself being gang-raped by swarthy Arabs, and it was published as part of a bestselling novel (Lawrence of Arabia). He also wrote one of the most scandalous novels of all time (Lady Chatterly's Lover). Mozart was sexually attracted to his cousin, and they exchanged obscene letters to each other. Mozart also wrote an ode to analingus. One of the degenerate popes was known for throwing a party where he had whores crawl naked on the ground for scattered chestnuts while guests masturbated on them. Nero would dress in a lion-skin and "savage the genitals" of women in his court- often in public.
Pretending that sexual perversion somehow appeared out of thin air in the last 50 years and that people before then all just had sex with the lights off just like the Film-Authority approved movies showed is shockingly ignorant.
