Do you not understand the difference between saying 'everyone engages in behavior x' and 'forcing people to behave in behavior x'.

Because it looks a lot like you're asking people to be tolerant and understanding about a multifaceted nine carat gem of stupidity.

Yawn...my wife and I like to watch porn together. We see it, it gives us ideas to try and suggest.  We don't always accept the ideas we see.  Like I suggest time and time again her, me and any entry of my top 100 women who we personally know, have seen, are friendly with or are have shown a sexual interest in one or both of us.  She says no...repeatedly.  But there have been other suggestions that we have tried that we learned about while watching porn.

I wouldn't say porn is destructive or bad.  Hell, I've had one night stands with women that were so bad I came home, went to a porn site and had better sex with my right hand than I had with the woman the night before who's name I instantly forgot.  When I was single I actually used porn as a filtering device for prospective dates.  If the woman was 100% against porn I didn't waste my time with her.  If she said "Yeah, I go to literotica.com quite a bit.  I may have read some of your work."  Then I know it's someone worth dating.

The strangest woman I ever dated, before I decided to use porn as a filtering device for dating, she was against porn.  So when she'd visit I'd have to hide my porn and use the "special" user account that I had created on my computer for when she visited (Win 2000.  The special account blocked the internet to anything that could be porn related.  I had an IT friend who set it up for me.  This way anti-porn girlfriends wouldn't accidentally find the porn sites I frequented regularly.  It also blocked access to certain folders, so she couldn't go snooping and find anything on my hard drive).  She hated pornography, refused to watch it, but if we were walking down the street and she thought she saw someone having sex in an open window she'd get excited and would want to watch.  If we were watching a movie and it built up to a sex scene she'd get upset if there was no nudity or sex, or the scene was just skipped.  Porn is bad, but peeping and voyeurism is just peachy?

There is only one person who I have ever met that I would say was a porn addict.  I was in college, in my mid-20s living in the dorms.  I was there for about a year and a half when this kid who's name I don't even remember any more (called him Monkey because of the way he'd act when he'd get pissed) moved into the dorm to start school.  He was 18, fresh out of high school, first time away from mommy.  He and I were in similar majors.  Similar enough that I and a few of my friends had offered to help him with the basics that he was taking his first semester (we went through it, got A's, so why not help out those who need it?).  He was a bit weird to begin with.  Anyone who had offered him help with classes he avoided.  He didn't socialize with anyone.  Sometimes we wouldn't see him for days, just locked in his dorm room.

We later found out that he wasn't going to class.  One day he told me that he didn't go to class because that morning there was a light drizzle, so he assumed class was canceled.  But the night before, during a farking thunderstorm, hail and tornado watch he drove 30 miles to the porn shop to rent some movies.  His roommate explained that he visited the porn shop more than he attended class and the only sounds he ever heard coming from Monkey's computer or television was the moaning from porn movies.  No video game sounds, no television shows or regular movies, no silence either.  By mid terms he had missed enough class that he wasn't going to pass anything.  He didn't even know which professors were male or female.  The week of mid terms he was moving out.  Roommate laughed and told us about how his mother chewed him out for two hours over the porn.  She was giving him $100/week and he was spending it entirely on porn.  He never bought text books.  I bought his meal card for the semester for a $30 prepaid visa card.  That really pissed off his mother.  He also told us that she was threatening to put saltpeter in Monkey's food.  She did throw away all his porn and she actually took the computer to the third floor fire escape and threw it onto the parking lot.  She was pissed.  Five garbage bags full of DVDs and magazines.

That's probably the only person I've ever met that was a porn addict.

Sounds like his habit was interfering with other aspects of his life - which I'm pretty sure is actually when something becomes classified as an addiction.

Watching porn several times a day != addiction
Flunking out of college because you never went to class in order to watch porn = addiction.
Getting fired from your job because you keep leaving your desk to watch porn on your phone in the bathroom = addiction

/losing your marriage because your SO hates that you watch porn = you probably married the wrong person

Monkey's story is pretty much the definition of addiction.  Just about everyone I know admits to looking at porn online.  Monkey is the only person I know who let porn dominate their life to the point that everything else in his life fell apart.  I'd imagine that almost ten years later he's gotten the help that he needs.  If I remembered his name I'd look him up online to see if he is a sex offender.  I'm not saying that all who are porn addicts are sex offenders, but if someone is in an environment where they over indulge in porn to the point that they have a porn movie playing all hours of the day, flunk out of school, let their personal hygiene suffer (he didn't shower much since the dorms had communal showers, so imagine the smell of someone who sits in bed all day fapping and doesn't shower for a week.  Not just that, but the school had to toss out his mattress.  His roommate showed it to us, I think it was used as bed/couch/restroom/cum rag) and then their mother pulls that person out of that environment cold turkey, something bad could happen.  Something that could score a sex offender registry.

I also believe that we shouldn't let the Monkey's of the world, those who honestly have porn addiction, be the reason for championing anti-porn crusades.  Treat those with the problem and let those who can lead a normal life while looking at porn without the porn being a problem be.

enderthexenocide: one thing i hate is how anti-porn crusaders throw around the word "addiction." i suppose maybe .001% of porn watchers might actually be addicted and unable to stop, but the rest of us aren't.

Unfortunately, the entire concept of a "vice" (as a distinct concept from "addiction") is likely yet another casualty of the War On (some) Drugs.

About 3-4 years ago, my in-laws got my wife's grandmother a computer and paid for her high speed internet.  This way my MIL could Skype with her mother, they could email, share Facebook postings, etc.

My MIL crazy, religious nut brother was not too happy about this.  I am summarizing here, but he basically called the computer evil, because there were "ungodly" and blasphemous things on the internet - obviously porn, but things that were anti-christian, sites that glorified materialism, on and on, and on...oh, the computer had games on it that "distracted mother from her relationship with Jesus" (Solitaire, Free Cell, Flight Simulator, Tetris...not violent games mind you).

This is a grown man here, with a wife and two small children.  Granny lived about 1/4 mile from him.  They live in Wardensville, WV (Rural, mountain community with like 300 people in town)...maybe 1000 people in and around the city all together.  So, small, boring place to live.  Granny's husband of 50+ years had just died.  So you've got a 70-something woman, living in the sticks, with no one to talk to or take care of...keep that in mind...

So Jesus Freak after about a year or so simply had enough of mother having access to the outside world, and disabled her computer.  He uninstalled Skype, and every other game that he could, he deleted granny's Facebook, he canceled her high speed internet, then threw away the computer.

Needless to say, my in-laws were royally pissed off about this.  So they up and moved her to an apartment complex for seniors, and got her an iPad and high speed internet.

So, yeah.  Not sure what the point of my story here is, other than some religious folks are farking crazy.

Oh, no...my MIL does not really speak with her brother.  As I understand it, he did this like 15-20 years ago too when mom and dad got satellite TV.

2013-07-07 08:27:49 AM
There's a few things you guys need to keep in mind about conservative churches and porn that I haven't seen mentioned in the thread:

1. The root sin that churches condemn when it comes to porn is lust. The passage most often cited regarding lust is Matthew 5:27-30:

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.'But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

The passage here is pretty clear that even recognizing a nice pair of legs walking down the street is a sin comparable to cheating on your wife. For denominations that place an emphasis on literalism and proof-texting, there really is no way for them to get past the idea that porn is inherently sinful, and that whatever you have to give up to remain pure is ultimately worth it. They're pretty much stuck with it.

2. This campaign against lust frequently encompasses not just porn, but masturbation in general - the reason being that for most people it's difficult or impossible to masturbate without at least fantasizing about something. This is also analogous to cheating on your wife (or future wife, or someone else's wife,) as per the Bible verses I mentioned, so whacking it is out too. One major function of the "Men's Groups" in churches like this is to act as the "fap police."

3. So now, you've got groups of young men with normal sex drives who you've convinced that porn and masturbation are grave evils that imperils their souls. You've told them over and over again that porn will destroy their marriages, ruin their ability to enjoy sex, and possibly endanger their salvation. (That last one is kind of theologically long-winded in Protestant churches, but the gist is that God gives a real Christian the power to avoid temptation and the desire to do so, so if you consistently fail it may be a sign you haven't given yourself over to God completely, so you might not really be SavedTM.)

Anyway, so you got these groups of young men who believe that porn is horrible, but they also have pretty typical desires and they see attractive women on TV or walking down the street just the same as the rest of us. What do these guys do? They masturbate, of course. They may go through great pains to avoid it, and will feel tremendous guilt afterwards and promise to never do it again, but in general they can't stop. So now that they see themselves in a cycle of continual relapse and repentance despite the fact that they believe that porn and masturbation are on par with stabbing their wives in the heart and spitting in God's face, it's not exactly difficult to convince them they're "addicted."

 4. And, finally, if you've got an entire church full of women who've been taught from a young age that porn is analogous to being cheated on, when they discover that their boyfriend/husband watches porn or masturbates, they will feel as if they've been betrayed by a raging addict. This is not conducive to healthy relationships, so after dealing with a few disasters like this a pastor can semi-legitimately say that they've seen "so many" relationships "destroyed" by "porn addiction."


My point in this long-winded little diatribe is that the view that porn is a grave evil is mostly a self-fulfilling prophecy, but at the same time you're going to have a very difficult time convincing someone who believes this that the occasional digitally-enhanced fap session is not that big of a deal.

(Also, in a lot of churches like this the female sex drive is downplayed/ignored and the women's discussions of the topic don't get shared with the guys, so I'm actually not sure how much female masturbation and porn use are cracked down on. In general I can say it's viewed as a men's problem.)
