As for pornography being degrading, I think it depends on the type of pornography and the opinion of who's watching it. There's porn where everyone's of age, and they're having fun, all seeming to enjoy themselves, all seeming to take part of their own free will. Like "Girls Gone Wild", advertised on late night TV on certain channels. I don't see that as degrading. I wouldn't want my kid seeing it, and I wouldn't give them money for it, I don't necessarily like it personally, but I wouldn't call it degrading and tell others they shouldn't watch it. I've also seen some porn (photos I'm thinking of in particular) where the woman's eyes looked like she was on drugs and it made me wonder if she was even a willing participant. That disgusted me, imagining that maybe she wasn't even fully aware or able to decide clearly. In that case I'd think it was degrading.
As for men being degraded, I think it's equal for them. Just because they're the "active" one, doing the act TO the girl, doesn't mean he's not being degraded. If I saw him as a rude abusive man, taking advantage of girls in the scene, I'd think that's degrading and shows a bad image of men. But if he is acting in a loving way, and they are both enjoying themselves, then I don't think I'd see it as degrading to anyone.
You’ve given me more than what I have asked, but that’s OK.
So, those are your thoughts? I wonder whether your husband thinks the same way that pornography is degrading to men, whether as participants or audience. Perhaps, you can ask him and share his thoughts here too.
To me, pornography is degrading and there is no doubt about it. My question really is –
Referring to my signature, the women umm … or I should say, some women think pornography degraded women. Mr pimp thinks it degraded men.
Do you agree and what do you think of his view and why?
