The war on porn

Actually, no, there is no war on porn, but I have been struck recently by a bunch of people, non-Puritanical, pro-sex people, who want everybody to reconsider the use of porn, especially when it morphs into porn addiction.

I blogged about an adorable man a few months ago, and his TED talk called Why I Stopped Watching Porn.

Lately I found out about a web site called Make Love Not Porn, by a social media phenomenon named Cindy Gallop, know for her black apartment and her video talks on the subject of how porn is warping the sensibilities of the 20-something men she dates.

Gallop in turn is a huge fan of Don Jon, directed by and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a movie about a porn addict who recovers to have a relationship with an older woman played by Julianne Moore. It isn't anti-porn, but anti modern, high-tech Internet porn addiction.

And it is really, scientifically an addiction if this TED Talk The Great Porn Experiment is to be believed.
