This is an article about the effects of porn on society, specifically men and women's relationships. It focuses on men supposedly being less attracted to 'real' women.

Personally, I think it's garbage. Do you females relate with the article? Guys, has porn had this effect on you? What are your thoughts or opinions?

Read the full two page article here.
...The young women who talk to me on campuses about the effect of pornography on their intimate lives speak of feeling that they can never measure up, that they can never ask for what they want; and that if they do not offer what porn offers, they cannot expect to hold a guy...

A whole generation of men are less able to connect erotically to women—and ultimately less libidinous.
For the first time in human history, the images’ power and allure have supplanted that of real naked women. Today, real naked women are just bad porn.
I think some parts of it are bs and others aren't. Mixed feelings I guess...

I don't look at porn, at least not since I was 16, so it hasn't affected me at all. I don't find real women to be any less "desireable" just because I've seen a few naked pictures of other women.

Personally i think the real touch is a lot better then a pic...
But that might just be me. I guess whatever floats your boat.

See that's one of the main reasons I think that article is bullshit. I don't see my girl friend, nor have I ever seen any of my ex's as "fake porn." I don't compare the naked girl in front of me to some naked porn star. I'm usually just happy to be getting some ass. :D

I mean porn is cool and all, and looking at the "super star like" women is all fine and dandy, but it's not realistic. At least no more than the Hollywood "stars." I say "not realistic" in the sense that it's not the norm, or even the average, and I wouldn't base my expectations or life around it. The girls I've dated were because I was attracted to them in some way, either physical or otherwise. Not because they resembled some porn or movie star. Real experiences are far more valuable than some fucking movie or pictures. :rolleyes:

No, I didn't miss anything, that's just my opinions on the subject. I'm not saying that ALL guys feel the same as I do, but I know for certain how I feel.

That is good that you know how you feeling. More often then not you do run into guys who feel the other way. Yes a real girl is better then porn, most guys will say that but often what they want and aspect from that girl is tainted a bit because of the sexual porn and shit that see and subject themselves to. I am not against porn

I am just eh, it does have some affects on people lives if not a lot.

Porn Myth?!?

WTF?!? I feel dumber for reading that. The author of that essay must be on a long dry spell. Now she knows how men feel when they hear about the JackRabbit, or the DarthMaulDoubleDong, or the 12-speed glow in the dark dildo with jumper cables.

Now what about this. Say you got intimately involved with a porn star. Not totally unlikely because a lot of pron stars date guys who are not in the industry. Then your view is not tainted, because you're having sex with the very thing you've been conditioned into thinking women should be like.

Don't be. We're all porn stars in our own right. You're somebody's pornstar. ;)

like drugs, porn can be bad if it's compulsive...Too much of anything is bad. Personnally I just use my imagination, picture yourself with a really hot girl you know in real life and it does the job. And yeah I heard too much porn can cause sexual difficulties for men.
