I thought this would be an interesting topic, as it has been often brought up in tLL, and I'd like to hear guys' views.
I've found the general consensus on boards and in 'real-life', that viewing porn, going to strip clubs, etc, is something of a secretive nature that most guys feel a compelling urge to do and that they have to hide from their partners in case it upsets them. Also, some people think the sex industry as a whole is disgusting, immoral, etc,etc.
This is a view that annoys me for a few reasons- firstly, I disagree with the view that 'men will be men' and all of them are either into porn or there's something 'wrong' with them!
Secondly, that women are portrayed as prudes who hate porn/ strip clubs, etc and feel threatened by them. Not all women are like this, many enjoy porn, strip clubs, etc.
I would also disagree that the sex industry is immoral/ inherently wrong- I believe in choice for women and men to make a living in porn, etc if they choose. The only thing that concerns me is sexual expolitation (people being forced into it).
Well, that's my view of it- what are yours? Would you look at porn alot, or go to strip clubs? Do you find it demeaning to men or women, either observer or performer? Do you think women in general are not as open about the whole thing as men? Discuss!
