La-la, how the life goes on. . .
Hah! Thanks for the link, and the singular examination of how porn might be viewed by some men. Very informative!
You're welcome.It's actually a pretty widespread phenomenon (ie, more than just 'some men'); I know lots of men (myself included) who have similar experiences, and my daughters have experienced the, um, flip side of it that Russell Brand describes so, uh, colorfully.And just for the sake of saying so, Russell Brand is just about the polar opposite of a religious zealot. . .
What language was that?Seriously, I couldn't finish the video because my ears hurt.Depraves, indeed!
I'm pretty sure it's an across-the-pond version of the same language you and I share. . .
I've never found the appeal, maybe because the only porn I've seen, the people are not attractive in the least. Even the 50 Shaded stars....not that attractive!
Well, if you've never seen the appeal, God bless you. . .I know that there are more women using porn these days than when I was, uh, in my formative years, but in general, guys are 'wired' differently vis-a-vis porn than women are. For a lot of us, porn hits our brains something like crack cocaine. Whether the 'actors' are good-looking or not. . . ;)
Russell Brand is a smart, well-spoken guy. That was a really good video, and well-said. It's kind of scary to have kids approaching the teenage years in this day and age, honestly. I can't imagine how I would have fared if I was a teenager today!-FTN
Numb(er) One! Thanks for stopping by; I'm honored.It's hard enough for me to deal with the present parameters of porn, as an almost-60-year-old father-of-eight. I can't imagine being in my hormonal, discovering-girls mode today. When I was my sons' age, we at least had to slink to the back of the bookstore, and overcome the psychological hurdle of handing the porn to the (usually female) cashier. For my sons, it's just a mouse-click away, and the social stigma that helped keep me in line doesn't exist anymore. I just try to encourage 'em to fight the good fight, and never, never, never, never give up. . .
It is all too pervasive, eh? I can remember Mom railing at Dad over his National Geographic, convinced he wasted his money on it solely for the African natives pictures. Come to find out later, her father had his pin-ups room and Grandma's second husband also had a pin-up 'boys room' above the garage. Those pin-ups were modest compared to today's fashion mags but Mom claims each man had a more secret stash that had not 'yet' been found. I've had my struggles in the past, but temptation is an amazingly resilient thing. A lot of women don't get it but that's just part of the mystery. A majority of men, um, wanna see more. Seems like a majority of women wanna see, um, less. Ya know?
". . . temptation is an amazingly resilient thing. "You've noticed that too, eh?(And if Granddad's stash hasn't been found by now, one might wonder if the effort to 'un-hide' when he wanted to was really worth it to him. . .);)
Well, Mom always went the extra mile when it came to suspicion of men so I never believed in that second stash .... but that's an entirely different story
