Porn… Do you watch?

After reading this weeks porn articles, I wasn’t surprised by all of the mixed feelings and emotions surrounding porn.  It was interesting to view other people’s opinions about porn and sex as it applies to the feminist movement.  One point I was surprised to read was that porn leads to violence towards woman.  I personally had never read any documentation about porn causing violence toward woman.  Feminist may view porn as degrading and maybe the act or a woman’s sexual expressions or lack of constituting violence.

Porn and sex appeals to the majority of Americans.  In the last section of the article, the author makes a very good case for sex.  Wendy McElroy contends sex is good personally and politically on these three levels.  The first being masturbation since its uncommon for a woman to reach adulthood without knowing how to pleasures themselves.  Next, this allows woman to “sexplore” in a safe manner and lastly, offers emotional information that can only be learned through sexual experiences, either directly or indirectly.  I don’t view porn as a negative thing but as a way to understand your body and which in-turn allows you to experience intimacy in a different way.  The article also mentions porn can be used by couples to keep things exciting without going outside the marriage thus committing adultery.

Porn stars are in the business because they choose that lifestyle.  They, especially the females can make a great living and can invest in other business ventures.  I don’t feel sorry for them one bit, they love the fame and glory that comes by performing sexual acts in front of the camera.  Several porn starts have built empires with their income generated from the porn industry.  Who knew they [females] could have it so good.

What are your feelings?
