This guy stopped watching porn — and he wants you to know why. Gender activist Ran Gavrieli felt that most of the images he saw in porn encouraged negative, even violent, attitudes toward women, despite a recent wave of feminist porn. So he pulled the plug, and found that his personal sex life and private fantasies became much more fulfilling.
In his talk at TEDxJaffa, he advocates for physically and emotionally-safe sex, as well as erotica that shows a wider range of fulfilling sexual experiences — including the intimacy of human connection, laughter, and touch. Watch his talk here.
I HAVE SAID THIS FOR SOO LONG! *giant applause*
FINALLY OMG SOMEONE SAYS IT
"Finally omg somebody said it"
Oh yes. Multiple females have said it, nobody gives a shit. Some guy says it “OMG PORN IS BAD, I NEVER REALIZED IT!!!!¡¡¡¡”
I mean, the information here is definitely important, but seriously? Women have been saying this shit forever and no one listens or even bats an eye. The second a man says the same thing (but with a much more selfish focus), tumblr screams about how incredible he is for saying it.
Some guy comes in and says his sex life and his fantasies are suffering because of porn and tries to make it seem like he is the biggest victim here. HIS sex life and HIS orgasms were suffering so wow omg NOW he understands why porn is bad and we all should too after hearing that!
Nevermind the fact that porn is an industry that supports rape, human trafficking, misogyny, abuse, violence against women, pedophilia, and so many other atrocities. That’s not the number one reason here. Not the biggest issue at hand. No, let’s focus on the fact that this guy’s dick isn’t having the best orgasms and his sexual imagination is lacking and how horrible that is. Let’s praise him for only giving it up for his own well being, despite him knowing how awful it is for those involved in it. The fact that he won’t be contributing to a fucking horribly abusive industry anymore is just a cool added bonus, but definitely not the sole motive here, duh.
We all know that the suffering of women and their exploitation isn’t a good enough reason to give something up. But for the sake of saving men’s orgasms? WOW, BETTER SPREAD THE WORD!!!
