What Has Porn Ever Done For Us?

102 days porn-free.

If you have been reading, you will know (just about) where I stand regarding porn. If you are as yet unaware (and have been given no indication by the title of this blog) then do please go back through it and find out (then subscribe and tell all your friends how just fantastic the writing is. Thanks:)

I am of the opinion that, on balance, porn (in its current form) is having an overall negative affect and that porn addiction is a real and worrying problem. This notwithstanding, however, having thought about it for some time, I would like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the (few) positive things for which I think porn has been responsible, both for me personally and for the wider world. I still think it's bad, but that is not to say that it has never done anything good.

So here is a run down of some of the positive things I think porn has done for us.

Oral sex. I am of the opinion that porn has (most likely) been responsible for a proliferation of oral sex between actual people. Of course, there are the (lengthy) blowjob scenes but hear this: there is also a 10 minute-ish section in most (hetro obviously) porn scenes where the man performs cunnilingus on the woman. This happens every time, the man absolutely goes for it and and the woman, whether acting or not, has a great time.

There has long been a generally negative and utterly hypocritical view among men of this activity. For some reason, (#notall)men have historically expected to get unlimited head from women (many describing it as some kind of 'duty' on her part) whilst eschewing the 'returning of the favour.' I have always thought this outrageous. In my opinion, if you expect someone to put your genitals in their mouth, you should be perfectly willing to get theirs all over your own face, too. Also, if you love someone, you should love all of them and not just this bits you find pleasing.

As well as this, thinking vaginas are 'gross' (as I have heard numerous men contend) is not only childish (and stupid), but completely misogynistic. Women are beautiful from the bottom to the top and, if you can't find her vagina sexy (whilst concurrently expecting her to suck your own – let's face it – quite unprepossessing johnson), then you really have no business being anywhere near it. So grow TF up, my friend, and get involved, is what I say.

Porn, although being responsible for many negative attitudes towards congress, can be seen to be an exponent and supporter of men going down on women. It occurs in most of the scenes I have ever viewed. It is sexy, consensual and routine; it is shown as just something you should do, something fun and something normal. Although there might be a lot of women taking (potentially unsolicited) jizz in the face thanks to porn, there are possibly just as many who are now getting nightly orgasms from willing and enthusiastic (as it should be!) oral sex. Is it worth it? I'm not sure. I just thought it was worth noting that it's not all bad.

Touch typing is another thing I learnt (more or less) from porn. I mean, there weren't lessons or anything. It didn't feature in any of the porn* I ever viewed. What I mean is that much of my porn viewing (necessarily) took place in the dark. This being the case, I couldn't see the keyboard. I had to learn to type (and type good, you don't want to be slowed down by having a bad wpm rate) without seeing the keys. I gained a life skill whilst jerking off! Admittedly, I only got good at writing certain words (hot, sexy, pornstar, fuck etc) but it was surely good practice, right? Guys?

* Unless you count the secretary ineffectually padding the keyboard for twenty seconds before she gets gangbanged.

This exercise also improved my spelling. I seriously doubt if I ever would have learnt to spell 'amateur' if it had not been for porn. On another note, perhaps I would have been better off never having known what 'bukkake' was, let alone how to spell (and pronounce) it.

As documented, I wasted an obscene amount of time on porn, but maybe (just maybe), as this article shows, I took away a few positives as well.
