30 DAY PORN FREE CHALLENGE

30 DAYS OF ADVICE TO HELP YOU STAY PORN FREE

What’s Up (in the Media) Wednesdays. 06.19.13

by Shellie R. Warren on June 19th, 2013 in Students

OK. Let’s see what we’ve got this week…

1) Let’s start with some good news. It would appear that Google, BT are going ot be proactive (although honestly, it seems pretty reactive) to the overwhelming issue concerning child porn on the internet. I’ll be curious to see what they come up with. (Independent).

2) Did you know that 46.6 of all women masturbate? “Thanks” (cough) to a “song” by Sarah Silverman (featuring Will.i.am) that issue is being brought back to light being that her song talks about…well…this: “’Stay at home,’ she continues, ‘order in, watch a movie, then masturbate.’ She smokes some weed. She waters her plants. She follows a few B-list celebs on Twitter. She gets stoned again. She watches some [name of a porn site] on her iPhone.”  I continue to be amazed by how casual artists are with lyrics being that kids listen to them but my (main) point here is this: If nearly half of all women are masturbating and a lot of them are watching porn in order to do so, why is it being seen as “self-love” as opposed to a disturbing epidemic? If someone preferred to isolate themselves rather than be around people, we’d say that’s a symptom of depression, right? Please discuss.

3) I’m not sure if you’ve been following the rape case out of Portland where four young men raped to girls (one only 12) at a house party (where were the parents?!?). As if that’s not sad enough, it was video taped, posted on FB and a *middle school teacher* found it. When I was a teen mom director in high schools, “trains” (one girls with multiple guys) was like…lunchtime to a lot of kids. Why are more and more children finding *rape* (RAPE) to be a form of entertainment? Because it’s horrific to do the act but there’s something pretty demented about watching it (and posting it) too. (Huffington Post)

4) OK, I’m actually going to include this link because her nonchalance about it is…something to see for yourself. I checked out an interview posted on Huffington Post where a porn actress (calling them “porn stars” never sat well with me) is talking about how her dad said that due to the fact that she does porn, it has ruined the experience for him. I wonder if she ever thought to connect the dots between him having it in the home and her doing it now. Hmph. I will say this, though: There is someone who we helped to get out of the industry that I only recently realized I used to watch back in my porn viewing days. It definitely is sobering when you see that they are flesh and blood and not some blow-up doll.

5) And finally, one of my running “jokes” with my male friends is that in the Bible, *rarely*, are women warned about men but just in Proverbs 5 and 6 alone, men are warned every which way about women; about what being sexually involved with someone you are not in covenant with can (ultimately) do to you. I thought about that again when I read the article “Tough Love: Male Spiders Die for Sex”: “But when he took a closer look, Schwartz realized males were dying after a single mating. The females weren’t killing the males; the males were dying on their own, Schwartz said.” Male spiders are making  sexual choices that are causing them to take their own life. Just something to think about, fellas. (Yahoo)

Have a good rest of the week, y’all.

    “If someone preferred to isolate themselves rather than be around people, we’d say that’s a symptom of depression, right?”

    Because being an introvert makes you suicidal, apparently.

    1) Is actually a lot more political than that. They’ve been proactive for a long time – every ISP in the country including BT operates a child-porn filter, and Google was likewise filtering from the search results. They also contribute substantial funding to the IWF, an non-governmental organisation devoted to monitoring and identifying child pornography. The issue isn’t that they weren’t doing ‘enough’ before – it’s purely political. Right now there is a social-conservative (by UK standards – they would still be off-the-chart liberal by US standards) faction controlling a few key offices and a drive by a major tabloid to get adult pornography more tightly restricted to ‘protect children,’ and the best way to do this politically is to use the prospect of child porn to scare people and demand action. Additionally, as part of the current budget tightening the government has heavily cut funding the CEOP, the police organisation responsible for investigating and prosecuting the production or distribution of child pornography – which means continuing to investigate is going to need a lot more assistance from the IWF. The current conference serves to apply heavy pressure on ISPs and Google to increase their donations to the IWF, allowing it to expand to include the greater workload. The government has also proposed granting the IWF a form of official permission to carry out formal investigations, reducing CEOPs role to that of prosecutor only.

    2) Have you met people? I don’t want to spend time around them.

    3) I don’t really pay attention to individual events like that.

    4) Never heard of Stoya before, but a little googling shows she is one of the big stars – and for the elite few women porn stars, the money is very good indeed. Worth it.

    5) It was a male-dominated society. Not much need to warn women: They weren’t going anywhere outside their homes for too long without their father or husband keeping an eye on them. Remember the society in which the bible was written was very different from that one today – a lot of concepts we take the granted, like gender equality, simply didn’t exist then. If you found a time machine and tried to propose them, you’d be laughed at.

    1) I guess Google is doing this for all countries and organizations, not just the IWF etc. They’ve been fighting child porn from at least 2006, but it certainly isn’t their responsibility to do so, it’s another way to “don’t be evil”. I suppose their efforts should do some good, but they probably realize it’s an endless battle against very devious people who are well able to hide their hobbies. It’s not like you can type in “child pron” and get 10,000 child porn links in your search responses. Then there are the legal definitions that confuse the issue.

    2) Girls they just wanna have fun! She bop! If they never leave the house, yes, there’s a problem there.

    3) At worst the Portland crimes were statutory rape, consensual sex acts with probably experienced non-virgins and gross stupidity to post it to YouTube. The other criminals are the parents and grandparents who let this crap happen. Hopefully, if we get these guys off the street they won’t reproduce as much.

    4) The actress seemed to attribute her choice of career to her freethinking hippie mother, more than to her dad’s behaviors, which I would assume would be unknown to her as a kid. She has a nonchalant attitude because she isn’t morally conflicted over it and apparently enjoys her work.

    5) Agreed with Suricou on this. Almost none of the Bible is written to a female audience and little of it is written from a female voice. Males are warned in Proverbs against relations with married prostitutes, not against sex outside of marriage which was completely permissible for them (Adultery was only when a wife had extramarital sex, not when a husband had sex with unmarried woman.). There is only one reference I think of warning against prostitutes in general– that they are a “deep ditch”… maybe a money pit. Prostitution by single women was permitted and never prohibited or punished in the Bible, Old or New Testaments, unless the prostitute worked for an idol temple. That was forbidden. Women have always controlled the sex gate, unless they get raped. Guys sometimes have to die to self to get invited to live inside the gates.
