For the discussion of all things philosophical, especially articles in the magazine Philosophy Now.
So you're saying that it's more a desire to possess pornography than to use it in the substitution for a sexual act?It is more useful to think of them as collectors whose collections have taken over their lives
I guess you are addicted to pornography?Nikolai wrote:Are homosexual men addicted to porn latent heterosexuals?
The scenes are not totally artificial. They are are genuine pornographic acts. The impossibilty of what is depicted happening in real life (if that's what you meant) is the point of porn. Most scenes depict a world in which men have to make almost no effort to seduce women, all of whom are more that ready to have sex.Nisus wrote:I do not actually understand what's the 'pleasure' a man seeks in porn, since the scenes are totally artificial and the situations described impossible to happen in practice.
This is something people used to say about women submitting to sex when pregnancy was not the key factor. The idea that all porn is necessarily humiliating, base and disgusting, and, that no women could enjoy working in porn is pretty naive (some would consider it sexist).Nisus wrote:It's hard to imagine a woman capable of submitting herself to such a humiliating situation in the real world (i.e, when money is not the key factor) and it's also hard to understand why a man might feel pleasure by seeing women treated in such a base and disgusting manner.
While I'm not calling you sexist, there are many who think that a man talking about what women are inclined to do, what they can and can not find enjoyable, how they are supposed to feel and so on - is sexist.Nisus wrote:Calling 'sexist' a man who considers porn disgusting and base is something very funny, to say the least. Porn is an industry dedicated to promoting the worst type of misogyny, i.e., the idea that women are only good when they can be used as sexual objects.
