Is porn damaging to our sex culture?

Sometimes I can't seem to get it up for anything but some porno. Do you think we can condition ourselves into that mindset?

um, I feel like you're asking two different questions here.

Obviously, you can. Human beings (not just men, but men AND women) are incredibly visual creatures so it's easy to rely on porn to get some kind of stimulation. If you fear you have an addiction, then I would be best to seek kind of therapy.

I don't think porn itself is damaging to any culture, but I have an issue where a lot of our youth educates themselves based on porn alone, because they're are definitely not getting the education they need from home OR school.

I would love to see more burlesque and less porn - but that's just me. I'm more concerned about the sexualization of young teen or even pre-teens. I believe that's far more damaging than internet porn which parents can still block until their kids get old enough to make wise decisions (whether they do or not is another question).

In my opinion no. But I also have no issues doing just about everything you see in a porno in reality. If your a girl or guy who is more on the conservative side you might not be comfy taking it twenty different ways with a facial finish so for you the fact that people see it and might want it that way with you might be an issue to you. I think it has brought a lot more couple out to being freaks in the sheets.

I remember reading an article or watching a brief docu on something like this awhile back. Something about teenage boys that are generally porn addicts, or watch it a lot in general. Generally if they are a virgin, the majority have erection problems when with a girl physically. That isn't just because of the porn, but nervousness etc.

Anyways, it was an interesting docu, depending on what porn each teen would watch, that may change their outlook on how sex is supposed to be like. If all they are exposed to is bdsm, abuse, choking, extreme rough sex, then there's a good chance that's how they are going to think sex is supposed to be performed that way. It also depended on their home environments and how they are raised, what other things they are exposed too etc.

There are SOOOO many factors to add in that it is unlikely that porn alone is the damaging cause. Porn is yet just another part of the problem. I can probably guarantee you that if I never watched much porn during my teens especially anal! Then I highly doubt I would be nearly as much involved in anal as I am now.

Meh, the problem is not enough variety. It's fine to have porn with highly unrealistic sex, but it becomes way better if you can also easily find porn that is more realistic (and where the people involved have more realistic bodies, and that's normal and ok. That's not just an ideological thing, I also think it's hot.). I think what with the internet/some amateur porn the variety is getting better, but I'm not exactly a connoisseur.

I think porn is turning some younger male's expectation of women's bodies into very dysfunctional things. My major concern with this is what happens when a girl ends up in a relationship with a male effected like this, as I have in the past, and let me tell you he made me feel like absolute shit not just about my B cups and size 6 waist, but my inability to flex into some positions or take some kinds of abuse he'd seen in porn.

This could be amended by some variety, so it is probably not the porn itself but the fact that most have similar anti-female content and similar (read - mainly plastic) actresses. I feel having more females in writing and production for the industry would help immensely.

Why would you ask that? I mean I agree with the person above me here. but still Porn is not damaging to those who have HAD sex.

To me, porn is an art... XD

No, I don't, so long as it is used and an enhancing thing, and not replacement of real, connecting sex. I LOVE porn, but I can get off with or without it.

Porn can definitely be problematic, and I think it's giving a lot of teenage boys unhealthy and unrealistic expectations of sex.

Though society and culture creates the porn, and the porn helps feed it, it's sort of a vicious circle.
