I'm starting a new thread for the umpteenth time. This time I want to take a milder approach, a slower approach, an easier approach. Life is hectic, stressful and cruel. But it is also wonderful, awesome and adventurous. Well, it's a matter of perspective, isn't it? Porn is a gateway to the boundless depths of the shadow side of the psyche. So, why do we repress the shadow? Because it's not what we were taught to express, it's not the societal norm. It's not acceptable, but it is part of who I am! The porn industry represents the shadow side of humanity, like certain behaviors on a battlefield or in a war torn country, where the law enforcement structure has crumbled, or perhaps a government coup has nullified any law structure. When I engage in porn, do I consider morals or ethics or religious standards? No. It's my time to let the shadow engage, to allow my hormones to run wild, to engage in endless fantasy.... There are other ways to deal with our shadow side. And there is a healthy sexuality that we can learn to express. There is another way to deal with sexual frustration, to deal with stress, to deal with emotions. The first step is to abstain at all cost! At all cost!
