Back in my day, we didn't call it "self love", it was SELF ABUSE!

Don't forget, Subby, it also causes arthritis in the hands as you get older.

Why don't "experts" just come out and admit it "Anything that causes pleasure and enhances your enjoyment of existing on this miserable little rock of shiat is something we don't want you doing" and be done with it.

Farking puritan movement is alive and well today. If you want to live a life of pure chastness and avoiding earthly pleasures then knock yourself out. Those of us who want to enjoy a little hedonism now and again while we wait for oblivion should be free to do so without "experts" telling us dopamine and seratonin are the devil's angels.

Mary Anne Layden of the University of Pennsylvania, who specializes in sexual trauma, said pornography has been a factor in every case of sexual violence that she has treated as a psychotherapist.


But as a blast from the past,
Montreal, December 1, 2009 - A Université de Montréal researcher, funded by the Interdisciplinary Research Center on Family Violence and Violence Against Women, has launched a new study to examine the effects of pornography on men. "We started our research seeking men in their twenties who had never consumed pornography. We couldn't find any," says Simon Louis Lajeunesse, a postdoctoral student and professor at the School of Social Work.

Perhaps Mary Anne Layden can study  relations between crime and other ubiquitous actions, like drinking milk or eating hamburgers.

You know, I think most rapists rode a bus at some point in their youth...

Just to be contrary, porn really is bad for you.  I've seen it during my own 35 years, the burn out effect.  It just not as easy to get excited any more.  Also, if you have someone that avoids people, porn will be used as a substitute in place of actually trying to score with a girl. And then there's the problem Naomi Wolf mentioned, "It turns men off to the real thing," so that even when they do seek out a 3D woman, there's a disappointment in the works. Not to mention lack of practice means they aren't going to be worth anything in the sack.

Regulating it?  Good luck.

Not to mention stiff sockitis, crunchy towel syndrome, blurry monitors, keyboard malfunctions (how quaint!)holes in the walls, broken arm rests, VERY angry pets, odd looks in the laundry room, complaints from the nayghbors, KY and Vasoline shortages, a constant listing to one side when you walk...

Paraphrasing from Paula Poundstone- There is at least one study that supports the view of the person/group that quotes it. Who does these studies and who funds them? We need to do a study on studies.

I was going to say that was probably just the difference between English English and US English.  However, the actual (not the Fark) headline does seem to have what should be a grammatical mistake in either:
Pornography should be treated like drink driving or teenage smoking, experts argue as they it is so widespread in U.S., it is a MAJOR health crisis

"Experts argue as they it is widespread"?  What the fark does that mean?

"they are robbing young people of an authentic healthy sexuality that is a basic right of every human being"

So... beating off isn't authentic healthy sexuality?

I like a self-righteous hedonistic tirade as much as the next guy but you have to admit a little Puritan guilt can go a long way in spicing up a drug-fueled humping spree.

Disappointment? So... welcome to the experience of women everywhere since the beginning of time?

And this "burn out effect", that couldn't possibly be caused by excess masturbation itself or natural age-related mellowing, now, could it?
Isn't the point of "releasing the tension" to, you know, not have that tension anymore? So you can focus on other things?
So what if you no longer get fully sprung at the sight of the blob-shaped, boring, badly-dressed girl next door? She doesn't like you anyway!
You know what awkward introverts used to do before porn? Jack it without porn. And continue being lonely.
Think we'd be any better off as a society if we caged the nether-bits of such types until they found a girl who would touch them?
