It's not just for "dirty old men"...

Posted by Leticia, 15 Oct 06

It's out of the brown paper bag and into your home!

There is conflicting data about who is actually supporting the adult entertainment industry. How do you feel about this 57 billion dollar industry that is only getting bigger? Are you up front and honest about your viewing habits or do you sneak and peek? What about the "other" person in your life, does your viewing hurt or help your relationship?

The first time I watched a "flick" with someone it was the most informative and entertaining thing that I'd ever seen. The point of watching the "flick" was possibly lost on me, because I'm certain that the intent was to arouse and not to amuse me. You know what they say...Different strokes for different folks (no pun intended), right?

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

What I did learn may surprise you. I realized how much of a business "adult entertainment" is. Did you know that 12% of all websites are pornographic in nature? The $57 billion dollar is the worldwide figure. In the US the number is around $12 billion. That's more than the combined revenue of ABC, CBS and NBC. Here's the breakdown of how that money's spent:

  • Adult videos $20
  • Phone sex $4.5
  • Novelties $1.0
  • Escort services $11
  • Cable/Pay per view $2.5
  • Other $1.5
  • Magazines $7.5
  • Internet $2.5
  • Sex clubs $5
  • CD-Rom $1.5

The organization Morality in Media, Inc recently did a phone survey that showed that three out of four adults thought that viewing porn via (internet or video), was morally unacceptable. I don't know about you, but nobody called my house. Now, I don't want you to get the wrong impression about Leticia. Thinking that I'm some lose, morally corrupt, freak-nasty chick with a one-way ticket to hell in gasoline thongs.

It's just that I happen to think that as ADULTS, we are able to pay taxes, vote, go to war, think on our own, etc. etc. We should be able to decide for ourselves if we want to watch other CONSENTING ADULTS engage in ADULT activities. Why is okay for me to watch people kill each other by every sick perverted mutilating way possible? But, not be okay for me to watch two or three or four people making love to each other? No matter how bad the acting is.

Even though my views of the "right to watch" porn are quite liberal, how it makes me feel is a different story all together. The first time I caught my man hanging out in some porn chat room...I felt betrayed. It had less to do with the "sexual" stuff and more to do with the sneaking and hiding. Even though he never used his real name or showed his face on those naked butt shots (yeah, he went there). It still felt like he was trying to do dirt behind my back.

After many discussions about the subject and the discovery of a rather large photo collection on our computer, I told him what I was comfortable with and what was unacceptable to me. I learned how visual and material he was compared to the more expressive and analytical me. So, every now and then, when he's chilling in front of his own personal laptop with his private collection of pix and video's I'll shoot him an email with a cute little picture of my own and the subject line will read... "Here's one that YOU CAN TOUCH".

*Side Note: There is NO excuse for child pornography. However, it does exist. It is our responsibility to protect our children at all cost!! That's another article!

    I dont see anything wrong with porn. Its healthy for a relationship to get some insight on what your partner likes. They may be a little kinky and afraid to tell you. With this you can just watch and "watch". I'd rather my man watch porn than cheat.

    I think porn is fine as long as the people viewing are adults and in privacy of their own homes.

    Some people just need the extra stimulation....normally men. It has nothing to do with acting a certain way in bed, is has to do with satisfying curiosities. Let em look...(Im one of those who laugh my ass off at the movies), all those people are ACTORS...its just what we regular folk call 'faking it'

    I think if a Woman/Men is willing to do or act as a porn star in bed.. Maybe your mate won't need to buy/view so many porns. Just look at the home made one.. :)

    It's not my thing, but there's obviously an audience out there for it. As long as it doesn't involve violence, I suppose there's no harm in it.

    I dont have a problem with looking at porn or nude people. You can learn alot about the human body and sexuality and what you like and dont like so you can tell and teach your soulmate.

    A mind is a terrible thing to waste!!! I think it is totally hot when my gurl tells me that she wants to go to a gentleman's club when we are out on the town. Such a club provides stimuli in the form of not only tight joints but also provides her with an opportunity to allow herself to be free in a different setting and allows her to enjoy other sexy women's bodies in a harmless, safe setting. Then, of course, her being turned on more makes me a happy camper.

    Now is porn a bad thing??? No, i dont think so. We are all grown adults, we should know from right and wrong. Watching porn with your mate is not a bad thing, Now, its up to us to be responible behind it to make sure young ones dont see it. alot of people take like its a bad thing, but the only thing they should do is also promote protection dont give people(young kids) that see it the wrong idea.
