QUOTE OF THE DAY

Porn-free relationships are stronger, with a lower rate of infidelity. That’s what Amanda Maddox and her colleagues found in a study of men and women, ages 18 to 34, who were in romantic relationships. The researchers measured the levels of negative communication, relationship adjustment, dedication or interpersonal commitment, sexual satisfaction, and infidelity. In their study, 76.8 percent of men and 34.6 percent of women looked at sexually explicit material alone; 44.8 percent reported viewing it with partners. They found that people who didn’t view any porn had lower levels of negative communication, were more committed to the relationship, and had higher sexual satisfaction and relationship adjustment. Their rate of infidelity was at least half of those who had watched sexual material alone and with their partners. But people who only watched porn with their partners were more dedicated to the relationship and more sexually satisfied than those who watched alone.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

The cultural journey from half-naked women frolicking in fields to readily available gang-rape porn illustrates a few of the fallacies and problems in capitalist ideology, especially as deployed by defenders of the porn industry.

Introduction

Introduction

1. Why are you against pornography?

Pornography is a fundamentally unethical and multi-billion dollar facet of the culture industries.
While there may be pockets of ‘amateur’ pornography (more on that later,) it is a gigantic corporate institution that continues to profit from sexism, racism and classism.

Anti Pornography Protest

It serves the male consumer and it serves the male corporate elite who rake in their share of the profits while simultaneously degrading, dehumanising and figuratively destroying girls, boys, women and men in the process.

As a responsible human beings, we at Fuck No Porn (Blogs) believe it is our duty to take a stand and say “no more” to this utter bullshit.

We want to believe in a world where a multi-billion dollar industry based on the male sexual exploitation and violence towards disenfranchised girls and women does not exist.
