Amaaaazing

The majority of boys who view online pornography believe it provides a realistic depiction of sex, according to the most extensive survey of British secondary school pupils undertaken.

Children are often misinformed about things….

  1. “It can make a boy not look for love, just look for sex and it can pressure us girls to act and look and behave in a certain way before we might be ready for it,” said one 13-year-old girl.

    And who’s got the real problem with unrealistic expectations? Who has been reading Twilight, watching Nicholas Sparks movies? Watching whatever the modern version of Friends is? Is there a study into the unrealistic depictions of romance in fiction?

  2. Yeah, right. And when you see young teenage girls going out, togged up in a manner working girls would be embarrassed to be seen in, it’s all because their boyfriends have been mislead. ‘Course it is.

  3. All fiction is glamourised. Was your childhood anything like Just William or Five Go On An Adventure? Adrian Mole perhaps, but even that was pushing it.

    A triumph of (incredibly strong) hope over (extremely limited) experience.

    But why shouldn’t they dream?

    Girls too may feel pressured to live up to these unrealistic, and perhaps non-consensual, interpretations of sex. This is clearly not positive for developing future healthy relationships.”

    How do they know what the impact on future relationships are? Porn hasn’t been that widely available before. We are in a new world. But how do girls feel pressured to live up to non-consensual interpretations of sex? The point of the non-consensual part is that girls are not pressured in any way at all.

    I expect she is parroting what her lesbian teacher told her but actually that sounds like porn is teaching this girl a great deal of useful things that will help with healthy future relationships. Is there anything there that a girl her age should not understand?

  5. The Inimitable Steve

    Was your childhood anything like Just William or Five Go On An Adventure?

    I was confused by Enid Blyton’s juvenile mystery stories. And I read them all: the Secret Seven, the Famous Five, the Five Find-Outers… come to think of it, they were basically the English Scooby Doo.

    Me: “Dad, why don’t you have a study? And how come you’re drunk and eating a tin of pickled cucumbers again?”

    Dad (for it was he): “FUGGGOFFFF!”

  6. Well yes and no. Porn’s depiction of sex is certainly more realistic than the hearts and flowers nonsense about relationships which is actively harmful to the perceptions of those who believe it. The ideological nonsense that sexual desire is a consequence of non-sexual “relationship” feelings is pernicious claptrap. Lust, whether inside or outside a “relationship”, is an entirely distinct emotion that stands on its own.

    The actual realism more generally depends, like other media, on the choices of the film makers.

    It’s worth remembering that these complaints come from people who believe Blackadder is an accurate representation of the Great War.

  7. SMFS,

    “How do they know what the impact on future relationships are? Porn hasn’t been that widely available before. We are in a new world.

    There’s really no porn anywhere that deals with non-consensual interpretations of sex. After the 70s, the porn industry in the USA stopped making rape fantasy films (woman starts getting raped and then starts enjoying it) because of the general flak.

    What they really mean is more extreme sex acts, and I’m sorry, but you can find women who love that stuff. Maybe not many, but as some do, it’s not unrealistic.

  8. I wonder what the market would be for a porn film whereby the sex is fairly short, clumsy and disappointing, and neither party had looks to write home about?

    I mean that’s more realistic, particularly for teenagers.

    I’m so certain of success I will start crowdsourcing immediately

    Enormous. Search under “amateurs”.

  10. More of a problem for Muslim boys. Judging from the long winded osculations I see outside the lycée normal teenagers are getting along just fine.

  11. “The majority of boys who view online pornography believe it provides a realistic depiction of sex”

    Well, with some women it is. With others it isn’t.

  12. So Much For Subtlety

    The Inimitable Steve – “Me: “Dad, why don’t you have a study? And how come you’re drunk and eating a tin of pickled cucumbers again?” Dad (for it was he): “FUGGGOFFFF!””

    Pickled cucumbers? Luxury! My drunken father, when not beating me 27 hours a day, only had neeps.

  13. All fiction is glamourised. Was your childhood anything like Just William or Five Go On An Adventure? Adrian Mole perhaps, but even that was pushing it.

    Pesonally speaking, my teenage years were nothing like that drip Adrian Mole. Beavis and Butthead is by far the most realistic version of what my teens were like.
