Let’s talk porn (bow chicka wow wow)

So, I, being a red blooded male of the human species, enjoy me some porn. And without putting too fine a point on it, sometimes it gets weird. Not quite as weird as the glory days of Second Life, but admittedly weird.

And occasionally, just occasionally, I start to question myself. “Is this honorable?”

Well, the things is, most of that is a hold over from Christianity, where I was taught from a very early age that any sort of premarital sexual activity, even porn and masturbation, was a sin; christian youth magazines I was given by well-meaning individuals at my church would even classify it as straight up adultery if I had been in a romantic relationship).

The fact that I question this at all is merely proof at the effectiveness of the indoctrination (a word which I will edit out as soon as I think of a better one– “indoctrination” conveys a harsher meaning than I intend) I underwent as a child.

Here’s the deal: it’s a natural thing, and not inherently sinful.

You could whack off to the most depraved porn on the planet, and it wouldn’t be a sin, because a crime with no victim is hard-pressed to be called a crime.

Now then, it can also serve as an early warning system.

If I found myself looking at Gorn (“Gore Porn”, and do not Google Image that unless you have a very strong stomach and/or a death wish), I would not question the content that I was looking as as much as what led me to start looking at it in the first place– but what we view and enjoy can mold what we do. A weak soul can be slowly convinced and turned towards a path of extreme dishonor by a steady infusion of this kind of material, so keep a level head before, during, and after.

If you ever find yourself in this position, and start wondering “maybe this nymphomaniac-catgirl-with-a-La-Blue-Girl-fetish stuff I’ve been choking my chicken to is sinful”, remember the Wiccan Rede:

An it harm none, do as ye will.

Even if you’re not Wiccan, it’s still fantastic counsel.
