Personal stuff inside.

I bring no dismal news, I just felt like I should brag. A month ago, on the 18th of May, I swore to myself I would not watch pornography from that day on. For a normal guy, that's quite the resolution. For the sixteen-year-old hornsnowmobile that I am, it would be monumentous. Why stop, you may ask? Porn is so ingrained in Western culture, you say. It's everywhere, everyone watches it. I've long known that pornography is simply prostitution, and that prostitution has harmed many people worldwide, resulting in rape and abuse. As someone who cares about women's rights (and the rights of the abused in general), I can't keep watching porn knowing that someone is having sex when they actively don't want to (that goes for gay porn as well). Consent is only half the deal: consent and desire are what are needed to morally make the fuck.

As it is the 18th of June, I have gone a month without porn, and I used to consume it every day. I have my imagination to get by with (also I've always preferred classy art nudes), and maybe I've contributed to bringing down one of the world's many atrocities.

I don't want to sound pushy, but it's something to think about, and if you are leaning in the same direction I am, I urge you to do the same.

EDIT: It appears I've caused a bit of misunderstanding... I don't deny that there are porn stars who love what they do, both male and female, but I believe that they are quite outnumbered by those who don't.
