I am sorry.
I figure that most people who look
do not go to prostitutes (and even if they do) they do not beat women or treat them brutally or cruelly etc etc etc.
Most people who look do not think about them as people - because if you do then it is not fun anymore, right?
To think that maybe the human being in the picture is a real person who might not like what they are doing makes it not fun to look at for the average person any more, right?
That is just what occurs to me when I look.
That is why it is no fun for me.
But now I've brougt that point of view to your attemtion, maybe it won't be fun for you anymore either.
I am sorry that I have ruined this for you.
Really, I am not one to get on a moralistic high horse.
But I do wonder about dissociating sex from love. Because that is (to me) what is wrong about porn. Because you have to divorce sex from love because you cannot love someone who isn't a person. I think that doing that is wrong. Thats what I don't like. Because of seeing the person as an object. And you have to do that to get off on it.
I am sorry. I shall shut up about this now.
Maybe I don't use porn
Because I have a tendancy to act out my fantasies
Including the humiliating and degrading ones
I am not 'holier-than-thou' - I promise.
