The Amusing Thing About Porn (Adult Content)


The Amusing Thing About Porn (Adult Content)

I think that the majority of people can admit that they have seen a porn flick once or twice in the course of their lives. I actually had two roommates at one point, one gay and one straight, who would drink beer and watch porn together. They would each pick a movie and just sit there for a few hours and watch. I walked into the living room many times and found them that way. I thought that it was totally bizarre.

So, pornography is a really bad thing. As an adult who reads, it is hard to miss all of the information out there about how destructive the industry actually is. Going far beyond the exploitation of women, the porn industry has deep attachments to prostitution, pedophilia, and even human trafficking. I am not talking about naked bodies or sex here, those things can be portrayed beautifully and quite responsibly through art. Pornography, for all intents and purposes though, is a pretty terrible industry all the way around.

I laughed at myself today though, when I realized that there is something good about it. It is one of the only forms of media in this day and age that is actively reflecting the truth. The actors are not as highly paid as those in Hollywood, so they aren’t quite as picture perfect looking. They look a lot more like real people. They may have boob and butt jobs, but they aren’t airbrushed. Since they are portraying an exercise that includes physical activity, they sweat and they grunt and their faces get red. It is also pretty darn obvious when they are faking emotion, because they aren’t the greatest actors to begin with.

It is sort of sad that it has to be discovered in such a lowbrow location, but it is somewhat refreshing to know that there is at least something out there that is portraying what human beings actually look like. With all of the body issues that we face, that are primarily propagated by the media, porn is a nice reminder that people really aren’t all made of plastic. Maybe when we are feeling badly about our own figures, we should remember that in those films fat is shaking and jiggling all over the place no matter how slim or toned the actor or actress might be.

It is also good to remember that these are the images that people are using primarily to turn themselves on sexually. That might suggest that the average individual actually appreciates a realistic portrayal of the human body more than we have led ourselves to believe. I enjoy pointing these things out because I am sick and tired of the masses being manipulated by the media. If we all enjoy sweaty, jiggly, red faced sex, then how much are we really expecting one another not to be somewhat jiggly?

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.
1.There is a big difference between a roach and a palmetto bug. Real roaches are the guys from New York. They infest, they are spooky smart, they are dirty and nasty, and you have to work really hard to get rid of them. Palmetto bugs however, are big and creepy and dumb. You usually see them outside at night and they will fly right at your face. They don’t infest because they are native and they can’t survive in our AC temps. 2.Every public indoor place will always be frigid. Most of your friend’s houses will be as well. I take a sweater with me almost everywhere that I go, and if I forget to I regret it. 3.Outside of weather emergencies, weathermen are superfluous. In the rainy season, which is most of the time, there is an eighty percent chance of rain, every single day. The weather man has no idea what time it will rain, how hard, or for how long, and there is no way for him to predict it. You just have to go out there with your fingers cr…

The Power Of Willful Ignorance

I watched a woman say these words in a speech a few moments ago and nothing could be more true...willful ignorance is insanely powerful. Willful ignorance is the reason that good German people allowed their neighbors to be dragged off by the Nazis in the middle of the night. It is the reason that American people choose to believe our homeless are lazy and irresponsible instead of facing the reality that their situations have arisen because of widespread mental illness and cooperate greed. It is the reason that you will pick up a steak on your way home from work tonight, not bothering to find out where it came from, because you just don’t want to know. The truth is too disgusting.
I have gone on about the meat industry quite a bit and my goal here is not to do that. I love to eat meat, I will state that again, but the example that comes from our consumption of factory meat is so powerful when it comes to explaining willful ignorance that I want to use it. Out of ALL of the many, many,…
