One of the greatest drivers of internet growth is people’s desire for pornography.
While we are against banning of pornography because the state should have no say in what we can or cannot read or view (that is a slippery slope that quickly leads to a dictatorial censorship), we believe that men of substance should avoid pornography.
Pornography provides a man with orgasmic satisfaction which leads him to become less and less interested in his personality development. As a result, his personality declines and he no longer remains an attractive potential mate for women.
Pornography makes it appear that women are as eager, if not more, as men about sex. It doesn’t teach a man the importance of attraction and interaction that are important for social and sexual success. Porn storylines escalate too quickly. Real life is more challenging and one needs to know how to woo the woman properly. If one becomes fond of porn, one will have no patience for the phase of seduction and courtship. One will not have a real interest in other people and will want to bed every woman without putting in the effort. Of course, that will lead to failure and a going back to porn for satisfaction. It will become a vicious cycle.
Porn is also hyper-real. The kind of bodies, sex organs and acts shown in porn are all unreal and use actors and special lighting and camera tricks. After watching a lot of porn, it is extremely likely that real-life sex will seem like a pale echo of what the movies showed as possible. That will again cause a going back to porn.
Porn will soon therefore become an addiction which will slowly chip away at your self-esteem, the strength of your personality, and your engagement with others.
There are many communities on the internet engaged in the “nofap” culture of not stimulating oneself via porn or via other means. Many men in those communities go through a self-imposed no-masturbation period, and learn that their lives have dramatically changed for the better.
A great video which goes over the effects of porn is as below:
Stay away from porn. Stay real. Become an attractive man who has real experiences with women. Porn is just living inside your head. It is such a waste of your life to not venture out and be the best that you can be.
