#AtoZChallenge - Perspectives: X-rated

Off and on throughout my life, I've been confronted with X-rated materials.  A boyfriend's family had it on once when I was there.  At a party for work, where people thought it would be fun to see Debbie Does Dallas.  Pornographic magazines in vehicles, etc. 

I honestly don't see the allure of it.  I know there are folks who do enjoy it and many who crave it, but I care nothing for it.  Even aside from my faith and the fact that it feels "wrong", I have no personal interest in it. 

To me, what I have seen and heard of it, it reduces the people involved down to the level of animals.  We have horses, dogs, cats, chickens, hogs.  The animals will mate any time, any where and don't care who watches.  That's because it is all instinct, hormones and scents for them.  Often times, if you are breeding, say two horses, it is best to watch, so that you know for sure the breeding has taken place and to be on hand in case something goes haywire.  I don't want any part of watching two people engage in sex.  To me, It's a private, intimate experience.

That's my thoughts on the subject, what are yours?



  1. Tch tch
    I totally agree with you.

  2. I agree with you too, Barbara. And from what we read and hear, it is a powerful addiction that rips marriages and families apart. I know sex is a powerful thing and I'm all for it, but keep your body parts (including your eyes) for your spouse alone.

  3. Mine is the attitude of a 5-year-old, namely: EWWW, GROSS! No, I have no interest in watching that stuff. There's a lot more graphic sex scenes in popular television these days, for example Game of Thrones. If things get too disturbing I just turn my head. We've got our fish tank right next to the TV.

  4. I agree. I don't need to see any of that. But for a lot of people, it's an addiction. I wish the media wouldn't promote it so much.

  5. Amen! I've seen enough of it over the years to say that it gives a very distorted view of what a sexual relationship is supposed to be about. I have known people addicted to this stuff, and it truly changes them into someone not much higher than the animals you mentioned, just and urge and a drive and no connection to a partner at a deeper level. Such a waste of money, and such a waste of the lives of people who produce it!

  6. "At a party for work?" Why on earth would the people there have thought that was an appropriate venue? I would think anyone suggesting that could be brought up on sexual harassment charges if just one person complained... and rightfully so.

  7. I agree not appropriate for the work place. Like many things not appropriate in a lot of places.

  8. Time and place for everything, I think. Agree with you Barbara.

  9. Oh, I don't know. Like anything, it can be open to abuses. But such depictions have been around since at least ancient Greece. Every culture has some form of it.

  10. We've advanced beyond animals in many ways, and this should be one of them. Definitely should be kept private.


So glad you stopped by! Come 'round any time. ~ Barbara
