The problem is that the viewing of porn has the potential to evolve negatively, depending on how it is used. If it is used repetitively or addictively, or to replace a healthy sexual relationship, then it crosses the line. Some women complain their men are secretive and sneaky, preferring watching porn to being with them. Once you start lying, using it more obsessively rather than as an occasional tool or taking risks in order to watch pornography, you are likely dealing with a pornography addiction and THAT is what’s “bad.” Saltz

Pornography actually has many benefits.A great source of pleasure to those who don't have a chance with hot, attractive women. It also serves as sensual or erotic entertainment for couples.In a relationship, its a fantastic instrument of sexual ventilation for people when they are high on sex drive and their partner's aren't ready for it all the time . Porn is legal and performed by consenting adults. There is no trafficking in American mainstream porn. Women have the freedom to choose their scenes, charge accordingly, select co-stars, have sex and at the end of the day get paid handsomely for it(eg.Sunny Leone never did too much hardcore yet she's 1 of the biggest names in the industry).They can leave porn whenever they want. Its greed for money that drives them to porn and compels them to do outrageous acts like gang bang)A girl is not forced into porn, she does it out of free will and is very much enlightened on the repercussions of her decision. If she is fine with it, why should any1 else have a problem.Stop blaming the porn industry. If someone wants to stop porn , good/strict parenting is required. Teach ur sons and daughters to value dignity more than money and instill in them the value of a good college education and a good honorary job. Too much freedom to ur daughters, parental fighting, has all lead them into porn. Pornographers are just businessman who want to make money. They don't care for ur background and condition. They wouldn't be making porn and be probably in some other business if women hadn't offered to expose themselves. I feel porn should only be made by consenting couples, with the sole objective of arousing other couples or frustrated bachelors and spinsters. Then it would truly hold the meaning of Adult entertainment.

Masturbation relieves tension and stress, it builds resistance to prostate gland infection, and also improves the immune system's functioning. Thats for guys.

For girls: Also stress relief, building resistance to yeast infections, it relieves menstuation by increasing the blood flow to the pelvic region, and it increases the threshold for pain.

:-)

I also heard that is a great sleep sedative.

I don't see anything wrong with pornography itself, my problem is the possible exploitation of women in the process of making it. Regardless I think people make way too big a deal out of it.

I don't think it is wrong for a single person or a consenting couple to watch some porn. It is after-all a form of entertainment. However, it can cause problems for people who become addicted to it. I have heard of cases of erectile dysfunction in teenagers from over-use of porn. The brain becomes geared for porn and normal sex seems abnormal causing issues.

well for starters good or bad ,black and white dont seem to suit this argument for me ,i like to use porn ,yet i feel its wrong ,if i made my own porn and didnt sell it publicly ,i could much live better with this ,my problem isnt with people filming oneanother sexually ,my big problem is that it is sold atall!...no sane person would be happy their own daughters were pornography puppets for whatever person paid the price ...to give sex for money is whats wrong .not what kind of sex people like ,that doesnt matter .its so easy for a child to access porn .what must a child think ?this porn has been made for money not to help society .

Porn creates an image of what sex is supposed to be and what "role" women have to play. It is sexist much like other entertainment, so it is not alone, but pornography is the biggest industry. Bigger than movies, magazines, etc. So it has the biggest audience and therefor greatest influence. In a relationship it will make your partner seem less attractive, this has been proved through psychology. Women with huge breasts completely submissive to the man, this is unreal and creating the wrong message for youth watching this and a wrong model for couples to follow. I know there are other types of porn that don't exactly create this image but they do promote physical attraction over personality and feeling, much like the media. So, do you support anorexia? Bulimia? or any other disorder fueled by the media? The media and porn promote the same images and the results aren't good in anyway. Yes, you may get visual pleasure, but you can do with out porn. Sex is about love not about fake boobs and over sized cocks.

There are two reasons I find your claim invalid. The first is this idea that it's a sexist industry. Pornography doesn't just exist for men. It exists for women, for homosexuals and for lesbians. Porn where women dominate also exist to satisfy other men. So, not all porn views women as objects. The final line where you say sex is about love. I don't think that's necessarily true. Sex can be for a lot of reasons. To have children, to have fun or to satisfy your libido are all valid reasons to want to have sex. As long as the sex is consensual and both parties understand it's not about this innate need to love one another, sex doesn't have to be about love and I would argue shouldn't have to be love either.

The purpose of pornography is clearly lust. And, lust for anyone but your wife is condemned by God as a grievous evil repeatedly throughout both the Old and New Testament (e.g., Prov. 6:25; Job 31:1; Matt. 5:28; Col. 3:5; 1 Thess. 4:5; 1 Pet. 4:3). The act of lusting after the unclothed body of a woman is not a sin. The issue is which woman’s unclothed body you are lusting after. If she is your bride, then you are simply making the Song of Songs sing again to God’s glory and your joy. If she is not your bride, then you are simply SINNING. In short good side = your hell after life

But when someone is looking at pornography, he is actively undermining that inner strength of his, allowing himself to slip into being an animal. The eyes see, the hormones are triggered and the mind is washed away in a sea of biological tyranny. A grown human being becomes a slave of one tiny organ of his body. In his relationship with women, as well, he becomes enslaved in his passion for them—and a cinch for them to manipulate.

If you want to rise in life and become a whole and healthy human being, you need to maintain control of your mind. It's your mind, after all. And the first step in controlling your mind is to control your eyes. Keep them from staring at that which doesn't belong to you.

there are many instances of nudity and sex in all kinds of films and in many magazines and books. Some deal substantially with sex and are intended for educational purposes and are explicit. Who's to say that there is a difference between these examples and more overt examples like playboy or penthouse.

If media is showing perverted forms of sex, promoting infidelity and immorality then its wrong. does'nt matter if its porn or not porn.

If the actors are being exploited as a result of poverty or drugs, which is often the case, then its wrong.

Lastly, masturbating to any thoughts of real people or any photos of nudes is also wrong. It's adultery of the heart as Jesus said.

I think porn is bad for the reason of young children can watch as well, all it takes is a computer. I also see it as bad for people who have addicted personalities. Those people could one day watch porn the next day rape some girl, because they cant get sex and all they do is watch porn. There is weird people out there that cant handle life for those people porn is bad.

By that argument, seeing your parents come home drunk instantly makes you want to drink, or watching two girls one cup instantly makes you more prone to eating poo. People don't do everything they see. That's just a flawed argument. We see lots of adults playing Grand Theft Auto, but have you actually seen that as a reason why people go out to shoot other people?

I think it's bad. I'm a teenager and I don't watch it, because I think it shows the wrong way of sex. Sex should be a thing of love, not of lust (((only))).

And it gives a bad view of sex to teenagers who do watch it.

well. personally, I think it's bad. Sure, a bunch of "hot girls" get money and stuff, but it objectifies women so much, and makes it seem like they wil do anything in bed for a man.

also, All the pornstars make new standards for men and stereostypes who can be good looking and who isnt

the person in favor of pornography are completely bad and are themselves completely porn and ruined. according to bible also sex is a matter of love not of lust Jesus said it as a adultery of heart and deceiving it and defying it and more enough pornography has a very bad effect on a teenager's mind ,they loose their way and mind and become depressed and can even commit suicide. very bad disadvantage of looking at it is that we completely deceive our family and our simple parents . some parents who are simple and good think that their children are also good but in reality they become bad and cheat their parents and again such persons have no future and do not attain any success in their life,although parents of such persons are millionaire yet they cannot carry out there father's or mother's business ruining their life there strict steps should be taken and person should control their mind to have a better future . once i also got indulged in seeing bad pictures and movies but when i realized after 1 year i recognized i have done wrong and from tat i promised myself to become a good person therefore be good and attain success and "BE LOYAL TO YOUR SOUL AND PARENTS" and take examples of other people to be a good person that's all.

Forget all the nonsense about porn being "immoral" or "objectifying women", the real issue is we have young men who not only watch porn at every available moment, but also require more and more highly fetishized porn in order to 'get off'. The result is these young men become desensitized to visual stimulation and become impotent, except when watching porn. The problems that follow from this are obvious.

The porn itself isn't 'bad', we're just bad at handling it.

Your assumption that pornography itself requires an addiction is false. May I also point that if you are going to attempt to make an intelligent debate you might want to consider spelling "its" as "it is" which would be as follows: It's. As well as "pschologically" as "psychologically" . How can you debate on the merits of psychology when you cannot even spell its wording correctly. Any kind of Addiction may be harmful. The question is whether it is harmful to the individual, the group, or both. Does this addiction harm society? and how? Does it harm the individual, and how?

As far as a sin spiritually, where does it state that the viewing of pornography is harmful and in what religion? Are you speaking onto religious spirituality or onto the being spiritual toward the human mind, soul, etc.?

If are are speaking onto the terms of spirituality of the person then you may not understand the merits to that person. Perhaps watching pornography gives them a sense of adventure and they use it in the bedroom. Perhaps it's the best way for that individual to release stress, which would be good psychologically.

The question isn't whether Pornography is good or Bad, but whether it is needed for human society. I would say that it is very much needed. Not only as a form of entertainment, but also as another way to bring about creativity and excitement into ones world.

Porn like anything else only becomes an addiction only when you are being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit. With that said, enjoy your porn and don't make it an everyday habit

cheers.

For some, sure. But what makes you think ALL people who watch porn are addicted to it?

| Side: Good

I completely agree with this. Lots of things are addictive. If you drink coffee everyday, you're probably physically addicted to caffeine, yet it's not a horrible addiction. You function better in society because of your use of caffeine, you're more alert and you can better perform task like your job. If you eat chips, you can addicted to the salt and the oil. A lot of people don't though because it's possible to do things in moderation.
