Sex: My MY!!! Porn is good for you!!!


Recommended Posts

Wait...WHAT? Porn Is Not Bad for You?!?

Forget the conventional wisdom. Porn has little to do with real-life sexual behavior.

 

Teenagers and young adults who view pornography aren't any more likely to have risky, adventurous sexual experiences than those who shun porn--which is quite the contradiction of numerous previous warnings about the danger of porn, reports HealthDay News of a study from Danish researchers at the University of Copenhagen.

 

The study: About 4,600 [good N!!] teens and young adults between the ages of 15 and 25, all of whom lived in the Netherlands, completed an anonymous, online survey about their relationship status, ethnicity and other demographic factors, as well as the amount and type of pornography they used. In addition, they were asked about their sexual attitudes and specific sexual experiences they had had, which are deemed to be "risky," including:

 

 

the age at which they had sex for the first time

 

the number of partners they have had

 

whether they have ever paid for sex or received money for sex

 

whether they have ever had sex with a same-sex partner

 

whether they had ever participated in a threesome

 

whether they had ever had a one-night stand

 

The results: A very small percentage--between 0.3 percent and 4 percent--of the sexual behaviors defined as "risky" could be attributed to porn use. While there was a link between using pornography and having more partner experience, adventurous sex and transactional sex (paid sex) for both men and women, the link was slight for both genders and definitely not a cause-and-effect association.

 

"Pornography is not as big and bad a wolf as we thought it was, and maybe we should focus on other factors," lead study author and clinical psychologist Gert Martin Hald, told HealthDay News. "It does explain a portion of sexual behavior, but it is modest."

 

So if it isn't pornography that influences risky sexual behavior, what is it? Hald thinks it is primarily personality. Specifically, those who have a sensation-seeking personality--in other words, they were more likely to have said they enjoy wild sex and having exciting sexual experiences--are the ones who are more likely to engage in risky sex.

 

The study findings were published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

 

OK, St-8, tell your wife that having sex with me has nothing to do with you being in your closet beating your meat while looking at porn.

No academics, especially European, in their right mind would publish a study condemning pornography. Unless, of course, the researchers concluded nude, graphic images victimized women and minorities. Otherwise, most academics adopt the "what's the harm?" approach.

Science isn't any good at conspiracy, too much reward for proving others wrong. That said there are studies condemning porn, but it seems most of the evidence is the other way. So maybe the reason most academics don't publish studies showing something could just be because there isn't any evidence of harm.

Sexual repression and sexual liberty are two sides of the same coin. I avoid both viewpoints.

Figures don't lie, but liar can figure.

 

This seem to be in direct conflict with the 40% illegitimacy rate in America.

 

The life of an illegitimate child is a miserable existance.

 

People that encourage adultery (through pornography) should be horse wipped.

 

Pornography is condemned by the Bible.

 

Matthew 5:27-29, "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for the whole body to be thrown into hell"
