How Porn Actually Affects Relationships ?

 

Lately I have really been pondering about this due to a documentary by Ross Kemp, a TED X talk by Ran Gavrieli (video below) as well as my numerous frank and honest discussions I have had with my girlfriends. As women in this generation it is our general fear that we will never measure up to the most “perfect” image that a guy can at times require. I don’t know what the general fear for men is as I am not one but I am sure men have their own insecurities.

“Porn unfortunately does no favours for women”

Women who are cosmetically modified, airbrushed and have the most perfect bodies hair and make up are seen performing acts on men that we may one day feel pressured into. Porn can give men and women unrealistic expectations.

 

“The exposure to porn is now as early as 11years old !”

It is a billion dollar industry in which men as well as women are both avid consumers. My first exposure to porn was at the age of 14 via a relative. I don’t personally watch porn now but I am still amazed at how I can remember those images from my childhood years. It often makes me wonder what images are in people’s minds today especially with how aggressive porn has become now ?

I am not surprised at how early the exposure age is now. As I write this I am in my house with an IPad that can connect straight to porn, listening to music on my IPhone that can connect me to porn with the TV  on in the background which I could easily change to channel 800 and watch porn. It’s so easy to see why it such a major part of the human society today but what really are the effects ?

Below are some of the most common effects: 

 


 

As I conclude & close out on this post I would just ask of one thing and that is for you to really ask yourself how is porn actually affecting you ? Honestly ?

As humans all we honestly and really crave for is true intimacy and to be loved for who we really are flaws and all. I really hope that everyone reading this post will one day find this within their lives!

Much Love
