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.'

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.
