Porn– It’s not that bad!

 Men And Pornography

After reading “A Feminist Defense of Pornography,” by Wendy McElroy, I could not help but think about its portrayal of how women have become a marginalized, yet helpless group that is sucked into the evils of pornography. Yes, in many cases it does give us a bad reputation just to think that women would expose their bodies so openly and publicly.

However, most of these women that take part in porn agree to do so. Anyone can choose to do it and is not necessarily forced to take part in porn. It is ultimately a career path; a decision on how to make a living.

In addition, many women enjoy this so-called profession.

Although it is deemed degrading and shameful to the woman’s gender, I believe that there also can be some good found in it. Every side has its reasoning and to allow pornography, I believe, does not bring much harm, UNLESS a person takes it too far.

For example, porn is a versatile use of sexual expression. For individuals and couples alike, porn can bring satisfaction in aspects that are creative and different. What if someone’s partner believes that this can bring a little ‘spice’ to their sex life? As long as the other partner agrees, then what is the big deal?

As for individuals, porn can play a major role in bringing satisfaction without having to look for someone to partake in a one-night-stand. It’s a safer, easier option that allows privacy and an individual’s desires to be fulfilled.

Of course these all are the pros of porn, yet people make it a problem by taking it too far. By that I mean becoming addicted or thinking that instead of having a relationship, porn can be the main source of satisfaction. In addition, the very idea stated before where women are exploited also serves as an aspect that can be taken too far.

Why not think that in this beneficial way of entertainment and satisfaction, women are actually partaking in the ability to have a good sex life or stay creative? Let’s face it—porn has the potential to teach and allow people to become more educated on technique and how to strive for good sex. With women participating, they are actually helping other everyday women, as well as men, be comfortable with their bodies and be more confident in the bedroom.

More so, many of these women choose to do porn, therefore they do not have to be perceived as helpless victims with no control over their bodies.
