Yesterday, I wrote a blog on pornography and masturbation. A topic some may see as a little heavy, but one I feel important to address as a man, knowing that men can very easily can get caught up in such a snare. And as men, one must know the dangers of those things which corrupt, or know how to break free from such vices whilst on the path to perfecting manliness.

There can be nothing more destructive for a man that to become embroiled in pornography and masturbation, and yet, it is often not mentioned among us for feelings of shame, guilt, embarrassment and the sense of unworthiness that follows. 

A real man must avoid such things, knowing that the end result is a distortion of the world and the opposite sex. It's has the potential to wreck one's character and to stunt one's growth towards real manliness. And yet, once a man gets caught up in such a snare, it then becomes almost impossible to break free.

A man must not believe the stories that this is just a harmless pastime, and that it's ok, because it's what us men do. Men who think this way will often have problems later on in married life, or will ultimately suffer at least some consequences if they are already married.

Please take a look at my blog on 'Pornography and Masturbation.'

I think it is fine. Like any addiction though, if it becomes an addiction then that is a problem. If you happen to have some kind of issue with it, that seems to me a matter of personal opinion.

No offense, I can tell you mean well, but please take your time machine back to 1895.

Sorry you feel like this Steven. I can only say that although I respect your opinion, and it's one that many share, I have never seen a good outcome from such things. Never! Sooner or later, every action has a reaction.

I can't help but agree with the post, even though it would be easier not to. Today's world is filled with sex, sex, and more sex. It is tempting and like you said, can be corrupting. Sex is a natural thing but the corruption starts when it gets out of hand. I myself am in the snare unfortunately as a 17 year old who is still young trying to control these temptations. Any tips on how to stop or at least do it less?

Thanks 24z Alek.

I like what you said, "even though it would be easier not to." I seems that something so enjoyable and generally accepted by many should be ok. But there are so many who wish they had never started down such a path... not to mention the mess the porn stars get into themselves.

As for fighting temptations, it's a difficult path but by no means impossible. Self-control, filling the mind with something else, going for a run all help.

Good luck!

Thanks!

I prayed and asked God to help me when I went through that, and He did.

Wanking is totally normal. What's different in this era is the constant availability of online pron. Don't stop wanking; just stay away from the pron as much as you can. It'll make a big difference.

Really bold of you to post this. New York magazine did a big feature on this a few months ago.

A) No, I'm not going to any other damn site or any other place for you to tell me about your opinion

B) Your opinion is without merit

C) I don't care what you think a real man is, in my world, a life of pure denial is the anti-man

A) Agreed, not a huge fan of having to go to your blog to read what you are trying to post on this blog, more so as it is just a not so subtle was to drive traffic to your blog.

B) He's opinion has no more or less merit then your's Sheilds, you both random guys spouting off on the internet. . .Just like the rest of us.

C) A life of pure indulgence is infinitely more destructive then a life of pure denial. More over, I don't think anyone is arguing for a life of denial. I think the argument is that self satisfying urges that are meant to help you connect to your wife is bad, not only for your marriage but for yourself as well. Personally I strongly agree.

'Manspreading'. The latest in feminist caterwauling ...

Patriarchy is taking up too much seating space, according to feminists.  The latest absurd 'microaggression' endured by the constantly-aggrieved is that men simply take up too much space.  Especially when we're sitting.  Because men don't sit with their legs together ... and that's just sexist.There is simply no reason a man should expect enough space for…See More
