IS PORN HARMFUL OR BENEFICIAL?

With 30 million people watching it every second and the average age of exposure being 11 years, porn in today's world has become a pervasive force we can't ignore.

On this episode, Sara and Jye are joined by sex-positive friends Taura Edgar and Ross Gawelek to discuss all things porn. We discuss our personal experiences of porn, from how we discovered it to how its evolved, and the resulting impact on our watching habits.

By sharing the different types of porn we're drawn to - from Bang Brothers to DIY to the ethical variety - we discover the world of porn represents a diversity of our sexual experiences and desires, which we don't have to be ashamed of.

We openly explore the pros and cons of porn, and are reminded that we can afford to be more mindful about what we watch and how we watch it.

WORDS OF WISDOM

“Situations that we never are going to really experience but there’s something sort of exciting and naughty watching porn. Chemically, your brain releases dopamine or serotonin.”

 

“Just masturbating alone is a sort of a different experience. Porn takes it on a different level.”

 

“If you are spending more time watching porn than getting laid in real life, that’s a problem.”

 

“You really gotta be aware when it’s getting in the way of your social relationships. If you find yourself every weekend staying at home watching porn and not going out, you need to self-regulate a little bit.”
