Should We Ban Internet Porn?

Standard

Before you shun me, hear me out. It’s Iceland’s fault.

Iceland wants to ban Internet Porn

As a matter of fact, Iceland is trying to do that.  Simply speaking that might be pretty impossible today if you can pretty much enter any porn site with a proxy.

The question is why would anybody want to ban Internet porn, it isn’t hurting anybody right? The reasoning behind this is that: “This move is not anti-sex. It is anti-violence because young children are seeing porn and acting it out,” said Gunnasdottir to CNN on February 15th.  This personally confuses me. How are children getting access to online pornography and how are they acting it out? And by children we do mean like 10 year old? Do they poke people with a “stick”.  How are they getting their hands on specifically violent porn anyways? I would assume the parents would put parental control on all family used computers, and if you have a teenage boy than to bad, he will probably find a way around it. You know, hormones and stuff. I mean common, if Iceland can’t get their individuals to stop their kids from typing in word “sex” into Google, how are they planning to block porn from entering the country?

You must know that Iceland has strict laws against printing pornography of any sort; these laws do not reach out to the Internet.  It still confuses me how kinds get their hands on to the amount where it influences them to become more violent…

In any case, Internet porn does have it’s issues. In the positive light, it does help certain individuals not to act out their sexual fantasies on people in real life, but escape into a different world of imagination (with some extra help from the internet) and act it out there. Masturbation has been medically proven to be healthy and help individuals make less rash mistakes (like stuck in a sense of passion and lust).

On the other hand it does create some misconception. Pornography is supposed to be entertainment and maybe provide some educational value. Everyone remembers his or her first time being pretty awkward. As a hormonal teenager, your two main topics would always include sex and food, and you did not want to admit to being inexperienced in any of those. Even thought you admit to being a virgin, but you know what you are doing because of hours that you spent on porn sites. Not only does one think they became an expert in female or male physic but they are probably thinking that their penis will grow to such proportion.

WRONG!

 

Funny enough, it creates some major misconceptions about what sex is in reality.

–       No as a pizza boy you will not be invited inside for some fun times.

–       Imagine that, penis and vaginas come in different sizes. Somehow they look perfect over there, but trust me yours is just fine the way it is.

–       Please do not choke or slap your partner in random place unless you are into that kind of stuff.

–       No, not everyone screams like a crazy person when they climax.

–       Women, big penis does not equal good.

–       Etc.

These are just some of the most common mistakes that occur to people. Don’t forget that porn is emotionless and does not portray the strong feelings of love and passion that usually lead to sex. Pornography maybe great and satisfying for some but real sexual attraction is even better. In other words, watch what ever floats your boat, just don’t forget it’s not really a reality.

 We are the current generation where everything is available on the Internet, with a simple click of a mouse. What about the generations before us, when the Pornographic industry was just starting in simple Playboy magazines. Many people remember their first time was before they have discovered pornography, which allowed them a deeper understanding of the matter. One of my older friends told me how him and his wife first discussed it over time and once they were ready they did the deed, once the deed was done they were looking for other different possibilities of “having fun”. The thing is, porn also takes out the spontaneity and mystery out of lovemaking. Especially considering how many different and crazy types of pornography is floating out there.  Rule 34 of the Internet, if it exists there is a porn version of it.

That concept is simply scary since teens and young adults do not seem to understand the intimacy that the act actually includes. They may jump in it to early or maybe even for the wrong reasons. But this is also where parents should come in and maybe when the child is of the right age, create awareness of the difference between pornography and real love making, instead of suppressing it completely. Sex is healthy, sex is good, it only becomes dangerous when it is taught wrongly or taught as wrong/bad. So I guess the solution to our problems is not to outlaw pornography, but simply sit down with your teenager and have that extremely embarrassing talk.
