The article titled ‘Porn? Bring it on!’ in Times Life, the Sunday Supplement of Times of India, published this Sunday, 24th April 2011, was about women indulging in pornography. The article praises such indulgence of women saying, “Porn is no longer a man’s domain…. it is a swift change to maturity for women….” and poses a question, “If men can indulge their natural instincts, why should women remain deprived?” The article says that this is become possible for women because of “a liberated, open society, an all round empowerment of women and easy access to porn….”
The article cites a clinical psychologist, “Watching porn is normal. Married couples watch porn to spice their sex lives…..” The article on a very light note reads, “Pornography can be liberating for women who are sexually confident, but can create performance anxiety for others. Porn addiction has ruined relationships and marriages when it’s taken too far…..”
Now read this case which was published in an article titled, ‘Help! I am hooked to Porn!’ in The CALL.
“For 21 years I was a slave to pornographic addiction. The shame that follows every pornographic encounter…. weighed on me like a millstone around my neck. I was hunting for satisfaction but only, and always found shame. My shame enslaved me and I lived in a world of utter darkness. In April 2002, after my world crashed down around me, Jesus came to my rescue & shed His light on my sin and slavery…. God allowed me to understand the need for personal sexual integrity, the intrinsic value of women (and men), the deep desire to save my marriage from ruin, and an unquenchable thirst for God. For the first time I felt that masturbation, gawking at women, indulging in pornographic images, actions, thoughts, etc. was wrong….. it was sinful.”
This article defines addiction as “a habit that seems unable to give-up, because the more it is practised the less satisfying it feels.”
It also brings out the truth of use of pornography in marriage, “married couples who use pornography soon find that their marital problems only worsen. If a husband needs to pretend that his wife is someone else in order for him to be excited, then he will become less and less drawn to her. Instead of making love to her, he is destroying love between them. Also, porn actors are under the influence of drugs, demons and have the advantage of camera tricks and sound tracks. This puts pressure on married partners to perform like actors with unrealistic expectations; they no longer enjoy sex with their lawful partner giving way to adultery or spouse swapping. Finally our society is left with numerous broken homes.”
