Of Men and Porn

I don’t watch porn. WHOA, WHOA, WHOA! Hang on a sec. I said I don’t WATCH porn. That doesn’t mean I haven’t seen porn.

My first experience with anything pornographic was a sex hotline. Don’t ask me where I got the number from. I couldn’t tell you. What I do remember is running up my mom’s phone bill to $500+, and getting a severe ass-whoopin’ for it. When she asked me why I did it, I remember shrugging my shoulders and saying some to the effect of, “I didn’t know what it was; and, I didn’t know there was a charge for it”. I was in the fifth grade. I was telling the truth, I had no idea what these recorded women were talking about, and why they were talking funny. I just remember it being somewhat interesting and humorous to me to hear these women make funny noises. I’ve never called a sex hotline since.

My next experience came a few years later with the introduction of the Spice Channel to our local cable broadcasting network. I was flipping through channels looking for something to watch. Back then, they weren’t particularly good with blocking out the channels completely. If you flipped past a Pay Per View channel, there would be a brief image of what was on before the channel was blocked out. As I clicked by the Spice Channel, I caught a glimpse of what looked like a naked woman. Intrigued, I turned back to the channel. Yup, there was no mistake. That was a full-fledged naked chick. I was older then and hormones had started taking over, but having to flip back and forth between the channels seemed like too much work, so I lost interest. I had no idea what was going on from these distorted images, anyway.

One day at college in between classes, a few of my friends were having a discussion about porn. When I chimed in, telling them that I’d never actually watched a porno, they all looked at me with disbelief. After convincing them, a girl decided she would let me borrow one from her collection. I was so excited. The next day she arrived with the video tape (yeah it was pretty old). After classes I rushed home, knowing I would have privacy. I got home and, nervously, popped the tape in the VCR. I didn’t know exactly what to expect. It started with an African-American woman at a gym. Two guys showed up to help her with her workout. Then, the cheesy music started, the guys took their pants off, and, well, the rest is history. Ten minutes into it, I began to lose interest. This was actually kind of boring. It was arousing at first, but then everything started to become so mundane and repetitive. Some of it didn’t even seem believable to me. Any porn I’d seen afterwards showed the same thing: a thrown together story line that inevitably leads to sex, starting and ending the same way almost every time. I was disappointed. All these years and this is what the fuss was about?

So like I said at the beginning of this post, I don’t watch porn. It really doesn’t hold my interest. Do I see anything wrong with porn? Well, I think anything can become a problem in excess. I don’t see anything wrong if someone watches it every now and then. In fact, some couples enjoy watching it together; and, I think that’s perfectly acceptable. I would even go as far as saying that they should experiment and make their own homemade sex movies. It could turn out to be a very fun and arousing experience. Most men AND women use it as a visual medium to stimulate themselves during masturbation, which is fine, too. It becomes a problem, though, when it turns into an obsession.

When you’d rather watch porn and pleasure yourself than spend time with your wife or girlfriend, or be a productive member of society, you’ve got problems. I had friends that obsessed over porn. They always knew what was coming out and spent butt-loads of money on it. They would even leave school in the middle of the day to go home and watch porn. That’s when it becomes unhealthy. Not everyone shares my opinion, however. Some believe that porn is a poison, unhealthy in every aspect, arguing for it to be banned and destroyed. To each their own, I guess.

If you would like to share your opinion, I’d be more than happy to hear it.

  1. I think I watched my first porn when I was around 21 years old. I thought it was ridiculous and laughed all the way through it with my friends. It isn’t realistic and it isn’t stimulating for me. Now, I have had a problem with looking and improper pictures on the Internet. It is something I stay away from because I do believe porn in itself is wrong. Considering I believe we are only supposed to have sex inside of marriage, I’m sure you already know this.

    In recent days I have fully realized that I would not be with a man romantically who watches porn or searches the Internet for pictures. It would hurt me personally. I guess that’s an entirely different topic though.

    I am all for making a little film with the hubby though. Nothing wrong with spice when you agree on it!

  2. Pornis great! love the cheezy music and the scenes!! Porn is educational, entertaining, and enjoyable depending on which ones you like and watch!

    I remember watching the channel to catch glimpses of stuff. I can’t remember the first time I watch porn or how old I was.

    Being obessed…nah not cool.

    • Everyone has their own opinion of it, and like I said if that’s what you like then that’s cool in my book. I just never got into it. It just seems so forces and laughable lol. I think people that become obsessed with it need to seek some type of help but because the probably don’t see it as a real illness they don’t get the help they need. Such is life.

  3. $500? You’re lucky you’re still here! LOL! I was 15 and at a friend’s house with five other dudes. He had a video called “Candy Striped Nurses” and we all wanted to see it. I will never forget one nurse named Sharon who was turning everyone out! One dude got “touchy-feely” with Sharon and his hand went so far that one of the other nurses said, “Don’t lose your watch.”

    Needless to say, after I saw that, I never wore a watch in bed.

    • If wasn’t for a lack of trying, I think the only reason I’m alive is because my dad stepped in lol. What is if with guys getting together in a group to watch porn? I find that so odd. I would think if would be awkward.

      • Piling into a room when you’re 16 to watch porn is out of curiosity. Doing it at 26 is perversion. LOL!

  4. I remember the first porn movie I watched and I was oh so disappointed and horrified. I thought it was ugly and couldn’t help think do I look and act like that? OMG the thoughts haunted me and ruined sex for me for a while. I don’t watch it but I’m such a romantic at heart. A sexy r rated movie is way better to be than that the porn I watched.
