Effects of pornography on western society

Effects of porn on western society

Cindy Gallop in 2009 Launched “make love not porn” an educational website aim at young men and women in an attempt to reeducate them on the norms of sex which are not taught in any formal way but through exploration and creativity. Yet porn threatens that. It provides a preconceived idea of what is expected and it might not portray what is mutually gratifying. As Cindy said in her ted interview, in 2009 “porn is typically made by men for men.”

The effect of this is the objectification of women in a cultural shift that brainwashes men into thinking that their role is to dominate a woman, and that is pleasing to them. Women are taught what are presented as social norms for example Brazilians, allowing them selves to be dominated and objectified. The word for this sense of pleasure at being dominated is not enjoyment from biological pleasure, but probably stockholm syndrome. Despite being regularly in the top 50 most visited site, porn is an unhealthy addiction if a normal social life suffers, as it will when expectation don’t meet reality.
