When asked, “How do you know a guy likes you?,” an 8th grade girl replied: “He still wants to talk to you after you [give him oral sex].” A male high school student said to a girl: “If you [give me oral sex] I’ll give you a kiss.” Girls are expected to provide sex acts for tokens of affection, and are coached through it by porn-taught boys. A 15-year-old girl said she didn’t enjoy sex at all, but that getting it out of the way quickly was the only way her boyfriend would stop pressuring her and watch a movie.
This was a quote from the article below. The topic of pornography has been debated a gazillion times but there is now a renewed discussion in the light of what is quickly becoming a torrent of painful social studies. These findings keep popping up increasingly often. Through statistics and surveys, we keep finding a direct connection between pornography and dismal changes in the attitude men have towards women. Were women emancipated only to wake up in an age where their freedom is transformed in a choice of what sort of sex object they want to be?
To be clear: this is not to say that all erotic content is dangerous. There is also such a thing as ethical pornography and there are productions that go against the “macho” stereotype. However, this sort of production can’t really compete against a deluge of ego-worshipping, love-destructive porn.
The reason? We keep coming back at it: a lack of education in the most important elements of a happy life: empathy, connection, love. Instead, our industrialized educational system focuses on training kids to perform the work robots should help us with. It is no wonder that a lot of men easily drown in the sea of dick-glorifying deceitful imagery.
