Why do we love porn so much?

So, I’m 12-years old and sitting on the toilet on a Saturday morning. I’m deep in thought because a week earlier I had spied my older brother bringing some porn magazines into the house. They were shared out between my older brothers and cousins and I tracked them until the Wednesday when the trail went cold. My investigations led me to believe that for the past six months, porn magazines had been coming into the house. I had looked everywhere and couldn’t find them, but I knew they were there. I had no leads until that morning when I saw my cousin go into the bathroom with a magazine under his arm but not come out with it. After 20 minutes looking all over the bathroom with no success, I spotted a loose panel on the wall next to the door. It was only open a few millimetres but it was definitely coming away from the wall. Further inspection confirmed my hopes as I pulled it toward me and some magazines fell out. peep showMy joy didn’t last long however because there were only three mags. I was close, but not close enough. Sitting back on the toilet I reviewed what I already knew, but I seemed no closer to finding the bounty. I looked up, I needed guidance. The ceiling was a mix of different coloured plastic panels, the same as the ones where I had found the other mags. Then it hit me. My pulse quickened as I stood on the side of the tub and began pushing the ceiling panels. The first one didn’t move. Neither did the second or the third or fourth one. My persistence paid off when the fifth panel gave way and covered me in hundreds of porn magazines.

I had found the holy grail of adult entertainment and life, for me, would never be the same again.xrated2

So why do we love porn so much? The majority of us will admit that we enjoy having sex. Prostitution is one of the oldest professions in the world. We all acknowledge that sex sells and yet there still seems to be a lot of guilt associated with porn. We feel guilty looking at it, we feel guilty talking about it. There was a time in Ancient Rome when orgies were common place and having various sexual partners was seen as being necessary for a fulfilling relationship. Sexuality as defined today wasn’t an issue, you were just engaging in a sexual act. Even in Victorian England, porn played a major role. Soho in London became famous during this time as a mecca for any sexual deviance that you wanted to partake in.

So what is behind this shift to the negative? Why do we feel this way about something that is natural? I enjoy looking at naked bodies and don’t understand why we should be judged for it. Somewhere along the way someone decided that such thoughts and practices were immoral, forcing the pleasurable underground, to be enjoyed in secret and with respectable amounts of guilt. The problem though is that nature dictates how we act and behave, not the invented social norms or written laws of man.

The fact that porn is a staple in many households tells its own story.

Pick up new positions, study form, check out what goes where, there really is no alternative when trying to learn something without getting your hands dirty…well I guess that depends! Porn is great for testing your boundaries and allows you to find out where your partners boundaries lie because it’s a safe way to check out the answer to the question ‘I wonder if…’

Porn is also a great way to explore your fantasies and probably the safest affair there is.

Porn used in a loving relationship (with mutual consent) can add to your bedroom experiences. Not only is it a huge turn on to watch with your partner but it also opens up discussions that you may not usually have. It breaks down barriers and can lead to some very interesting nights under the covers (or in the field behind your house!) The Internet has made porn more accessible and you don’t have to put on a disguise before going to your local video shop. You are now able to see and enjoy things about everything from sex with animals, s&m, bondage, transsexual sex, interracial sex, big boobs, big dicks, pregnant women, gay, bisexual, milfs – the list is endless – from the comfort of your own home. Without porn you could be missing out on the biggest and best thrill of your life and that is why we love it so damn much!
