Nice choice of words

When too much porn throws your life out of whack, are you whacked off?

Recommended reading: The Most Dangerous Superstition, http://www.amazon.com/Most-Dangerous-Superstition-Larken-Ros...

I'm getting in a rut with my grammar...

... using the word "whack" too much lately.

I think I'll start using "inconceivable" a lot more.

.

This.

Funny how this guy was scared straight

...he got worried that there was a problem when he had a hard time getting it up to bang a chick. He said absolutely ZERO in the video about religious or moral issues. Yet, people around here immediately start posting in protest to religious objections to porn. That is not what the guy was talking about. He was talking about a physical addiction.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

More like a mind-addiction than physical

The physical manifestation was his inability to get aroused in the presence of a gorgeous, naked, young lady; when she really wanted him to perform. It got his attention!

His wearing of a cross is the only potentially overt symbol that he might be perceived as religious; but that doesn't keep folks from speculating that his motives might be more spiritual than mentally, morally, and physically practical.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Wow... porn is dangerous.

Wow... porn is dangerous. Let's ban it!

Shit I just realized, guns and large soda pops are also dangerous. Ban them too!

Forks make you fat! Alcohol makes you drunk, video games distract you from watching FOXXX News! Ban em all!

Porn makes you spank your monkey in ways outside of Yahweh's plan for you, so it's GOT to be bad! Why if there was no porn, boys would never want to pound their puds... well unless their parents failed to cast a baptism spell on them, in which case they are agents of Lucifer.

OMG, living makes you die! Ban it!

.

Who said anything about banning porn?

Thank you! Magwan always

Thank you! Magwan always builds a straw man and starts attacking it whenever someone posts anything exposing evil behavior. :-)

Yeah I've noticed that too,

Yeah I've noticed that too, it is his way ;)

Thank you for posting this video.

porn does not

get you addicted or make you dysfunctional. you do that.

That is like saying tobacco doesn't make you addicted

It is true that people make the decision to use tobacco and individuals are responsible for their choices. However, it doesn't negate the fact that tobacco affects your brain chemistry in ways that make it very hard to stop using it. Why do people have a hard time believing other things like porn are addictive in similar ways as pharmaceuticals like nicotine?

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

that's right

tobacco doesn't make you addicted. you addict yourself to it and the feeling it gives you. i didn't say anything about it not being hard to quit; all addictions are hard to give up, until you get serious and face the music, then it gets a little easier.

Most people that have sexual disfunction have been shamed

Into it by the church, or by conservative parenting that did not allow for the discussion of sex, sexual intercourse, or sexual pleasuring of ones self. All they were taught is bad, bad, bad, and the result is an overwhelming feeling of guilt. 50% of Christian males and 20% of Christian females suffer from the same effects the young man in the video suffers from, yet those exposed to sexuality throughout their lives; such as those in France, and places where human sexuality is not taught as taboo from birth, do not suffer anywhere near the same dysfunction as their ultra conservative counterparts, blowing the theory of mental issues out of the water. Not to say there are not sexually dysfunctional people out there, just that people that watch porn are rarely in a higher category then those suffering from actual sexual dysfunction. In France nudity is not hidden from children, and it is not treated as some hysterical taboo, and those children do not grow up sexual deviants that have been shamed into thinking that the most natural thing on the planet makes them a bad person.

While the morality of porn is up to the beholder, and those who participate in the films, some porn has actually helped enhance sexuality in married couples, and although I am no scientist it is always interesting watching Americans in general either run from sexuality or jump in head over heals, neither of which would be considered by today's standards as healthy. Remember, anything can be abused, and this is where this young man is confusing major mental trauma from too much alone time with lil Willie during an age span when his testosterone is at an all time high, and the number of times he can release in a day may be 3-5+. 3-5 releases a day, can anyone imagine being turned on by anything after that?

Most desensitization is occurring from a lack of testosterone which is released during masturbation, so while the point is valid that those who watch allot of porn and masturbate lose sensitivity and feel as though girls do not arouse them might want to lay off of spanking the monkey all day every day while it may not be a health risk, if one has drained ones self of testosterone and sperm then Willie doesn't have much to jump and and cheer about.

Like alcohol, marijuana, and other pleasure stimulating drugs, or Mountain Dew for that matter, they all can be abused. Just like self pleasuring(especially in ones teens and 20's) can be over done because of the rapid replenishment of testosterone and sperm, which can cause one to immediately be ready to masturbate after a release.

In the end he confirms the obvious, that those who stop watching porn naturally slow the number of times they pleasure themselves in a day resulting in more testosterone build up, which leads to the most natural form of release and that is human to human. He really de-codes the hype himself when he states most males can "recover", but yet he still uses the "addiction" as the cause, not the effect.

In other words sexual release is a good, healthy, and natural thing. Masturbation also is healthy, but no matter if one is watching porn, looking at dirty magazines, or face planted in the sears women's underwear section, too much is too much and will result in the same things he has blamed porn in general on.

So like anything else, enjoy the porn, enjoy the release, and do so in moderation. Nothing unhealthy about that at all, and for heavens sake if you feel guilty about what you are doing then perhaps a sexual counselor could help rid yourself of that ever bearing guilt laid upon you by someone with a 50% chance of having a real dysfunction caused by quasi morality, and misinformation.

So while he continues to read from websites posted by those who feel human sexuality is taboo, remember there is a 50/50 chance that the person who created the website has a dysfunction caused by lack of knowledge, and a life long guilt trip by those that do not know better.

What's the difference between

What's the difference between jerking it daily versus having are daily? None. The body knows no difference. They say sex is healthy. Well then logic would dictate that so is jerking off.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Not sure what "are" is, but if you meant sex I would agree...

And both are healthy, and both can be abused.

completely agree

The most insidious effect of Christianity is all the sexual repression it has engendered.

WTF are you talking about?

WTF are you talking about? Yeah, the worlds been such a great place since these "sexual revolutions." Whatever the hell that term even means. To me it just means people throw out their morality. Enjoy the diseases, ya bunch of fornicators.

It sure has

Absolutely no doubt that the sexual revolution was a great step forward for liberty.

Explain how the world has

Explain how the world has gotten better since then. Disease is running rampant. Wars are running rampant. Violence among civilians is running rampant. Yeah, decadent society that thinks getting laid by strangers is freedom is sure working out and really progressing humanity...

The world is going to do what

The world is going to do what it does with or without your consent or approval. This crazy thing is out of anyone's control. You cannot control what other people do so it doesn't do any good to get angry and condescend to people, especially people on dailypaul! Come on man it's "us." Have a great July 4th weekend and don't worry about all the fornicators, though I imagine they'll be having a good weekend too.

I can be mad about it and

I can be mad about it and judge people all I want, because I don't do it in hypocrisy. I'm not out there screwing. I especially have the right to be angry about it when it's all over TV shows and movies. Tolerance doesn't mean I can't be pissed about it, it just means I have to accept it. People are also supposed to be tolerant about things that can't be changed, like race. Since people going around screwing like animals is a voluntary behavior, I don't have to be tolerant of it.

Such beasts we are

I never said you can't be pissed, I was just sending a little "chill out" your way, which is totally optional. If I was a progressive I might try to mandate chilling out, but not in this life. There are things that get me heated as well so do your thang bro.

Heated, T Chilly? Really, how so?

We're taught to, "Be angry, and sin not."

Where do you get your, "chill", bearings from; oh, Terminal one?

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

We all have the bearings, just have to keep 'em greased

We all get to choose how. I'm partial to books, music, drums, permaculture, intimacy, and cannabis. And some well written HBO television shows. But that's just me.

Not sinning or violating the NAP is good. I could say it might even be human intuition not to do such things. I mentioned that I can get "heated" in an attempt to keep the conversation from becoming an argument. I do my best. I like conversations much more than arguments. Only now do I realize the irony in my choice of words. I suppose temperature is relative.

I believe the essence of my screen name can be beheld in the form of song.

Please explain why you think the sexual revolution

Has caused more wars or violence among civilians. I am curious about how you came up with this. Also, what diseases are you talking about?

“Although it was the middle of winter, I finally realized that, within me, summer was inextinguishable.” — Albert Camus

Society's acceptance of

Society's acceptance of casual and deviant sex in the '60s. People started thinking rampant sex was somehow freeing of the soul. I'd say we're now getting over another revolution, but where talking about super-deviant behavior is now talked about, and labeled normal in movies, TV, and music.

Excellent post

Totally agree, thanks for sharing it.

God created erotic pleasure. He knows what is best for us

because He created us.

He gave us a gift, but knows that when the gift is abused or misused, our good is diminished.

I've taught my children about sexuality from God's perspective. They know it is wonderful when practiced within God's boundaries, but is harmful outside of those boundaries. They don't walk around with a guilt complex--they have purpose outside their genitalia.

Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html

"I've taught my children

"I've taught my children about sexuality from God's perspective."

That's amazing wisdom to have! I thought I should warn you though, there are quite a few other Christians who also "claim" to have been personally allowed to see and understand the mind of God so as to be able to articulate his perspective, however these other so-called "Christians" don't present sexuality the same way as you do. Clearly they must be agents of Lucifer. No doubt they have seen the mind of Satan and we should probably figure out how best to destroy them. We can root them out by putting them under water. If they don't drown, we'll know they are of the Devil!

P.S. Your boys do have a guilt complex because you grossly underestimate the gravity that their genitals exert on them. They have little to no measurable purpose outside their genitalia once they reach about 12. You can't understand that, because you are a woman, and worse, a Christian woman. By trying to bend them into little sexually repressed god-boys, you are doing irreparable damage to them. Bend them too far, and you'll create monsters. Back off now, and you'll just get heavy repressive backlash if you're lucky. As a female, you simply have no concept of the crap going on in a normal boy's head. No concept at all.
