I wonder how many percent of people in the age group 20-30 who use porn? and how frequent they do (in US and Europe)
I watched porn 5-6 days pr week. And I would like to compare it to whats "normal"
Any studies on masturbation freqency also?

Normal is to not watch any

Normal is to not watch any porn at all, normal is to find yourself a woman and make love to her. I think it's important to get this through our heads. Porn isn't natural. I don't know any numbers or surveys though, but I suspect the percentage of porn users to be very high.

Dunno,

but I know that last year a Montreal professor had to alter his pro-porn study...because he couldn't find any college-age guys among the university's huge student population who *hadn't* used it.

As I often say, using porn is as normal as a baby reaching for its mother's breast. As Courage points out...what's not normal is today's porn videos in all their endless, escalating glory. Perhaps, babies would be equally over-stimulated and tripped out by so many breasts....oh...maybe they are. Wink

Marnia, Do you really think

Marnia,

Do you really think porn watching is similar to breastfeeding? Your great Marnia. That is why I love you because of these types of ideas. Keep it going.

Take care. All my children breast fed into their first/second years. One of my children could actually to a handstand and wave while breast feeding.

Take care.

My point

in case anyone else missed it, too, is that we are genetically programmed to find Mom's milk and sexually arousing stimuli VERY interesting. These things aren't a choice, but that doesn't mean "more is better." Today's porn videos are like nothing our ancestors' brains ever had to (evolve to) deal with.

i do

but i am not in the target group, 40ish, but i can tell you i watched porn off and on since a teen. The internet though is so much easier than finding that particular flick with just enough lame plot, with stars I can look at and be aroused, and happen to get alone with the tv and vcr,( i never aquired them in cd format as i have the internet.) who really wants to push the old arousal taboo threshold at the video store with the family in front of you renting Free willy, as you with your copy of gangbangathon or vegetable vixen, (came up with those, i dont doubt its a title), is thrown in amoungst as many other movies as a customer is allowed to rent. I dont believe I actually even did so sober. I would bet though curiousity gets the best of most we would never think would. You can't search for much of anything especially images without some skin picks popping up, and my eye for somereason scans unconsciencously I could swear. As far as normal? hmm,,,be right back

insanity induced normality

Ok well in my opinion, if not already, it will become the norm, unless of course science catches up the media, but who can afford or want to battle the industry of Porn? sounds like too much drama, i think i would rather join the loons out trying to get God off of the money that feeds the industry. in other words no thank you. It used to be normal to smoke, not wear a seat belt, ride in the back of the truck as a kid, to never use the lock on your doors. But like everything else, we learn, just cause something is acceptable, dont make it safe. ism I have, and mentally unsound via excess I have gone. I believe the recent tiger woods, and jesse james who took their porn from virtual to actual to grocery store tabloid, we are well on our way. I mean wow, I thought it was bad when my kid found my handcuffs and dildo. talk about rock bottom.

Loved this post, CD

It's really interesting to contemplate how "normal" from a standard definition perspective (sort of "lowest common denominator") may now be diametrically opposed to the "normal" Med. Psychol. definition: "healthy and free of disease."

Normal may be verging on "out of whack" because we're desensitizing our brains so much with sexual stimulation. Think about the fact that 64% of Americans are now overweight. It's "normal" in the first sense, but also a disease. One that our ancestors, in a different environment, had a lot less of.

Well, according to the

Well, according to the definition I am not normal.

"a.approximately average in any psychological trait, as intelligence, personality, or emotional adjustment.

ME average in personality and emotion? Personally I think god put those of us who aren't to normal, here to test and improve that which the normal person could not conceive. It's sad I think that anyone who struggles with depression can no longer run for president, or is treated lessthan. Abe Lincoln ran this great nation while he was depressed, but did great things, he was not considered less than. It was his feeling and thinking which guided him and his choices for this country.
I like porn, I do, but as with everything I gotta find balance, and I am a pro at making damn sure It won't work before I am humbled enough to admit it won't .

I agree

Discovering what doesn't work and why is a very valuable service to humanity sometimes. Those who cling to the straight and narrow can't perform it. Smile

Reply!

I'm several years older then your age range, but I'll interject my two cents nonetheless. If I watch porn, I engage with porn! So now I just don't watch it. So light, do you watch porn?

Vegetable Vixen

I'm sorry - I know you didn't mean it this way - but I love that image! Sort of a Health Food Harlot. Think of all the diet meals you'd sell!

Or maybe she's a super-villain, turning men vegetative with her stare. She's not a porn star. She's comic book main stream.

CD, quick, sell the script to Hollywood before someone else comes up with the idea. Wink

P.

Hmm, are you suggesting

Hmm, are you suggesting adding the bad girl image to eating healthy? Gaw Dam I might eat my vegetables yet. Definantely a great campaign idea for those vegetarians. The whore of healthy. I swore I would prefer death to giving up my steak, but then again I have said the same about my orgasm. : )
