Is Porn good or bad?

Anyone who has Internet access these days can access pornography . In the Philippines, talking about sex openly is still taboo and, young men in particular get their knowledge about sexual pleasure from watching pornography in secret. It’s not an ideal substitute for sex education as it can create ideas about sex and sexual pleasure that are very far from reality. It can cause people to believe myths such as that women always like to be controlled during sex, that men with big penises have better sex, or that women can orgasm easily from penetration.

Although pornography may seem to show how real people experience pleasure, it doesn’t really. Pornography is acting and the people in them are actors. Studies have shown that pornography not just feeds men’s fantasies; it also shapes how they engage in intimate activities.

Pornography can contain very high rates of violence against women and can promote a degrading and dehumanizing idea of sex for boys. Boys and men are the majority of consumers of such pornography, which means that boys may model their behavior after porn and that girls, as sexual partners, must respond accordingly. While not all porn is violent or degrading towards women, it is important to remember that pornography does not model reality most of the time.

Sexual pleasure can take many forms, but the most important aspect is to learn and recognize what you like, what brings you pleasure and how to communicate and express that in a healthy way.
