A couple thoughts on desensitization, addiction and porn

I love anal sex. I think this is a pretty uncontroversial admission here on LTASEX, but hell I feel like it needs to be said early and often. In fact, ever since I was a youngling watching porn on the family computer, anal – along with interracial and group sex – has been one of the most powerfully arousing visuals for me.

I’m not sure what it is about it, really. All I know is, if I watch anal videos on pornhd or any of the other tube sites, I’m aroused and ready to go almost instantly.

Even after 20 years of watching porn and jerking off, it’s still a powerful trigger for me. In that time, I’ve tried watching myriad different porn genres, but I always come back to straight up anal as my porn activity of choice.

Now, you may wonder why I say this. That’s understandable, I’ve made it known how much I like anal for many years. However, I’ve just read a scientific article on how one’s distress or anxiety makes people believe they are addicted to porn. On this topic, I feel like there’s something I need to say: porn desensitization and addiction is bullshit.

There’s this common thread in anti-porn rhetoric where they constantly claim watching porn makes you like actual sex less – it’s connected to the addiction lie. Basically they’re saying that porn makes you some cracked out gonzo zombie; people said basically the same about weed and rock music.

At the end of the day, statements like those are nothing more than fear mongering and ignorance. That’s why at 28, with a full evolving sexuality and two decades of porn watching under me, I feel like I need to speak up.

In my time watching porn, I’ve actually come to like sex with humans more. It helps me eroticize the body and the action. It helps me quickly get a nut off when I’m in a rush and need to cum. Porn helps, more than it hurts.

Porn isn’t the enemy, it never was. As soon as our society realizes that, we’ll all be better for it. Also, I’ll probably get more anal and anal porn so that’s a pretty cool, too.
