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.'

On another note, hopefully in my lifetime we'll get full-on virtual reality.  I'll just put a sensor on my brain and I'll be "inside" my PlayStation 6.  Game producers have learned just how much people love shooting their friends in the face in multi-player.  Surely there will be virtual reality where I can run around shooting and killing my friends (painlessly) and I will be one of the first people to jump aboard, no question.  It'll be like paintball but less expensive. 

Assuming there will be virtual reality sex in which you can have sex with a virtual woman, what will we think then?  No more sitting naked in front of the computer and jacking.  The arguement is that sex and masturbation are different and one lacks "real contact" dissolves.  Now you are with a "woman" of sorts.  Assuming religion survives that long, I can't wait to see them try to prevent people from fulfilling their fantasies in VR.

That technology might very well be the end of rape (though I sadly doubt it) but it will definately be many a divorced and single man's salvation.  Problems for real relationships, definately.  But the thing about technology is that no matter how many people oppose it, it always gets created, because we can.

Are we making this too complex. One of the great things about the male anatomy is that our dicks are there to grab and yank at any moment. With a little imagination there is not a need for added products to make a man fully able to satisfy himself.

Warning, explicit.

Seen her in the Blind Side? Pretty mediocre film, but oh my...

I don't know why exactly, as I can look at her and say that she is a lovely woman. But for whatever reason, she just doesn't  make me feel tingly. 

I absolutely agree with you.

Doesn't masturbation make you go blind and gives you hairy palms? ;)

yes, it does

Fuck yeah, that's why we've got all these guys out here in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco wandering around outside the theaters where they couldn't get their hands behind the screen where the girl was.   Same gig in Tijuana.

Seems to be that if a guy (or a girl) chooses to view porn they've got their own set of reasons.  Far be it from me to judge.   Some guys I've seen looking at porn at the local liquor stores look to me like maybe they would have a difficult time getting a woman, and might not be able to access a prostitute.  Why should I care if that gets their rocks off?

If in fact a guy or girl is in a committed relationship, yeah, steady, maybe any, usage of porn could be detrimental-I have no idea.  Possibly a therapist, whether secular or spiritually aligned would be helpful.

Does your blog article provide evidence to back up these assertions? You've made them pretty black and white issues - as though even moderation is impossible with such a vice. But I don't think that is the case. Certainly addiction is a problem - but if it does NOT affect your personal relationships, work, happiness, manliness, etc. then I don't see why they are in and of themselves, a bad thing. 

edit: Gah! trapped by a thread necro. Ah well. It's out there now.
