Short opinion on the pr0n/no porn thing
that's been going around: yes, I approve of pornography and erotica, especially erotica.
However, as with everything, it's to be used with caution. ( Collapse )
I like to pride myself that I have a realistic ideal body image and physical standards for myself. ( Collapse )
I have found that attitude, personality, and mind is the defining factor in the sort of relationship that lasts, not a porn-star body. ( Collapse )
Some women declare that they want to look like fashion models, or that they can't measure up to porn-star standards. ( Collapse )
I don't really think that men expect porn stars to be real women, any more than women expect the mannequins in department stores to look like real women. (YMMV, of course.) ( Collapse )
If someone's in a sexual relationship, and only wants sex out of it, and not actual relationship stuff, then they might as well be wanking to porn. There will be just as much, if not more, involvement, and less chance of hearts breaking. If, however, they're mature enough to want hugging, kissing, couple in-jokes (right, hotlips? *ducks*), and all the other things that come with a relationship, that's what porn can't give, and a real partner can.
