Reaction to Porn

By xxizzyxx3 Feb 08, 2012 831 Words
“Sex is a part of nature and I go along with nature”. This quote from Marilynn Monroe who in the 1950’s was an actor, singer, model, and an American Sex Symbol. Even in a time period where sex was not as openly talked about, Marilynn Monroe reestablished the woman’s role in the idea of sex. The more I educated myself on the topic of porn the more I missed the strong female presence of Marilynn Monroe. For my unique experience I decided to watch an X-rated pornographic movie because I had never done so before. I thought that I should branch out of my comfort zone and watch one of these films at least once to expand my knowledge about pornography and human sexuality in general.

My experience with watching online pornography all started off with a Google search of “porn” because I really had no clue what website to go to. The first website in my search results was pornhub.com which was a site that I had heard mention of before. The thing that I liked about the website was that you could roll your mouse over the video clips and it would show you brief parts of the video. After viewing some of the little snippets of videos on the home page I decided to click on categories to see my other options. I found a category called “female friendly” I decided to watch a video from here because I started watching other videos but they were too explicit for my taste. The video I ultimately chose was called “ORGASMS Making Love is Beautiful”. I enjoyed this video because it was not too explicit and it seemed like this sex scene was one that would typically happen with a couple. After watching this video I learned that porn is not necessarily degrading to women as I previously thought. I used to think that porn was gross and only guys watched it. My thoughts about X-rated films have changed and now I do believe that they could play an important role in society. Pornography websites like the one that I went on are a good idea because they have different categories for a variety of preferences. The “female friendly” category shows that it’s acceptable and normal for women to watch porn. Online pornography could play a role in society and be used for sexual gratification for people who do not have a partner or are seeking gratification in other places. My impressions of people who watch porn are that they are normal and just trying to get sexual gratification. Some other viewers of porn may watch it because it is at the access of their fingertips. Shy people may feel more comfortable watching porn rather than participating in sexual activity on their own. I think that is natural for people to be curious about sex and viewers of porn can learn a lot from watching the films. However, my opinions about people who participate in these films are a little bit different. I think it takes a very open person to be willing to have videos of them having sex online. I do not necessarily have a problem with people who take part in these films, but I do think that if they do not get tested or use protection that they are presenting a danger to themselves and others. The worth of this unique experience project was to push my comfort zone. Not only did I go out of my comfort zone with this project, I expanded my knowledge and changed my opinions in doing so. Without this project I probably would not have watched porn on my own. I also would not have known that there are all different types of pornography for people with different preferences. For people that have not watched pornography before I would recommend doing so because it might open their mind like it opened my mind. Many women think that porn only portrays females in a negative light and I think if they were shown videos similar to the one I watched they might expand their minds a bit. Also, people who have not watched these films before might find that they enjoy doing so and continue to watch them for their enjoyment. This project relates to the course because it expands knowledge about sexuality. It allows people in the course to do something they might not normally feel comfortable doing and reflect back on whether or not they would do it again. My experience relates to the course because it introduced me to the world of online pornography that I would not have been experienced to otherwise. The online pornography industry plays a huge role in human sexuality and how people view sex. I am glad that this project was assigned because otherwise I might have never changed my beliefs about porn and its use in society if it were not for this assignment.
