On Pornography

Pornography is an insidious force. It is one of the majors ills of the world, and a perfect encapsulation of our decline as a society. It encourages masturbation and self-absorbedness, selfishness and indeed loneliness. It encourages you to pursue shallow pleasure instead of fulfilment, it provides a short-term solution to a long-term problem. It makes you docile and complacent, and it gives you a false sense of achievement.

Not to mention all the adverse effects on the brain and your health in general. Among many other things, it has been proven to rewire the reward center of the brain, and cause erectile dysfunction in men.

Stop watching pornography; it is beneath you. It is harmful, and it degrades you. Degrades your confidence and sense of self-worth.There is something deeply perverse in being a spectator to someone else’s pleasure, and then pleasuring yourself, in solitude.

We are, after all, what we repeatedly do. If one spends ones free time  engaging in degenerate behavior, one eventually becomes degenerate. Spend your time doing something worthwhile and productive instead.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” –Aristotle
