Let's talk about Porn: Real Physical Touch and Why It’s Important

in porn •  2 months ago

Everybody has a different childhood and upbringing and the amount of touch varies from culture to culture but studies have shown a positive connection between touch and emotions. Real, physical touch that is consensual and positive produces emotions such as joy, love and empathy. Touch is a powerful way to communicate without words.

When you watch porn, take a look at the what you think might be real and true intimacy. After this post, I want you to observe the actors as real people and think of them as someone you know or are close to such as a friend or family member. Now look at how they are touching each other. Does that seem real to you? It’s not. There is no connection between the two, or more, people.

Now you might be thinking, “That’s how it is in the movies right? They are just actors and there is no real connection between the two people since they are just acting.” Yes, that’s true. And, believe it or not, movie watching can be an addiction. However, an addiction to movie watching does not have the same effect on the brain as watching porn. People don’t get erectile dysfunction disorder and have to hide their actions from watching too many films. Remember when we talked about the affects that porn has on the brain? (link) These activities and exercises are geared toward bringing awareness to the situation at hand.

Your homework for this post is to be an observer. Notice the touches when you are watching porn. If they stopped at touching only would you still be interested? Why not?

Human touch feels good and to experience the sensual and human part of any relationship, you need to understand the importance of it.

As someone in the adult industry, i find you post very interesting...

Thanks @lucyreloaded - we're really trying to encourage open, honest communication about the adult industry from an addiction and recovery perspective. The effects on the brain cannot be underestimated.

ok, I understand.

I have been in the adult industry for a few years - (cam, escorting, etc).

For me personally , I not have an addiction to porn ( i enjoy with my partner - a lot ! - on a crazy party night).

My partner does - maybe - but it isn't a negative thing in our life.

It doesn't control his life, but he doesn't get very sexually excited without the visual stimulation.
(not the case for me ).

It doesn't control his life though - in any way, so is not negative ( if you see what I mean - there is no problem)

I totally agree on the effects on the brain - for my partner -who has been in the industry longer than myself, and it has definitely changed his sexualness.

-not negative, just different...

I think exposure to porn at an early age - before relationships - can distort, and make unhealthy for future adult sexual relationships.

If you know yourself as an adult, its not the same. ( i think)

(Sorry for any bad writing - english is not my first language - even though I am translator! lol)

i hope that helps

I was able to watch live porn in Thailand, It was all about entertainment... I feel sad for the actors and actresses... No intimacy at all , pure entertainment.

Live porn? That's an interesting proposition - not a live video feed I assume but an actual live sex act with a big audience? Curious - you're right though about the lack of intimacy.

Yes it's actually live sex act with audience.. When you visit thailand, you can ask the locals about it..
