Things Men Don’t Want to Talk About: Pornography and Masturbation
In this installment of a five part series titled “Things Men Don’t Want to Talk About”
for the Manlihood ManCast, Josh Hatcher of Manlihood.com talks about Pornography and Masturbation.
Men don’t want to talk about what they do when no one is looking.
For a few reasons.
One reason, we don’t want anyone to tell us we shouldn’t do it….
Or… we don’t want anyone to know we do it.
Masturbation takes away from our power. It may seem like a release, or like a biological way to “clear the pipes.” But it’s not that. It actually decreases desire, and can create a situation where you are training yourself to the fastest way possible to orgasm. This is the opposite of what you need in the bedroom with your spouse.
Porn is harmful to men. It’s impact on the brain, impact on the emotions and addictive nature is never satisfied.
Porn is harmful to women. It teaches men to devalue women, to degrade women. Porn is a nasty downward spiral of degradation toward women. That’s not was sex is meant to be.
It’s also harmful because the industry is SATURATED with human trafficking, including underage girls. You may think you’re watching porn that is consensual, but when you hear the horror stories of how women have been enslaved and are doing it because they have no other choice… it will make you sick. Someone’s daughter was drugged up, tortured, threatened, and forced to make that porn.
I was addicted to porn. It almost destroyed my marriage. It was not an easy fight. I would try to justify it or explain it away, but the truth is, I was neglecting my wife and pleasing myself. I was gratifying my own desires – and it lead me to a dark place. It would have gone darker if I had continued.
