Addiction ?
How can you compare Crack addiction to Jerking off to porn?

@ turdburglar - in this case "lebretard" doesn't refer to political liberals. It refers to soft-headed degrees like Liberal Arts... the kind of people who buy into pop psychology like repressed memories... we saw where that went. It was THEE theory everyone believed and it turned out to be totally bogus, completely debunked.

All these "additions". Basically anyone with a character flaw who lacks the self discipline to stop doing something gets to claim it's "addiction". As if labeling it somehow makes them a victim and not just a stupid ass.

I've done my own stupid ass stuff in life, but I'm not so lame as to call my character flaws "addictions".

The main difference being that people have to eat to live, you don't have to look at porn to live


Irrelevant, I don't have to comment on this forum to live. That doesn't mean I'm addicted.

Are you serious? This is a ridiculous myth pushed by neocons and their paternalistic feminazi cohorts. They have their own version of an ideal nanny state.

But but but, the reason people can get addicted to chemicals is because of the damage they do to the receptors. So in my mind, no damage means no addiction in the chemical sense. I declare RA (reckless attachment) to be the new phrase for non chemical addiction.

I don't want to watch the video and no one here is saying if it is any good. So is it any good (as defined by having nakeds peoples in its.)?

I think I'm with @Gerry1 on this:
LIKEING something and being addicted to it are completely different. It's the same for "risk taking" or for "thrill seeking" behaviours too. Are parachutists "addicted" to leaping out of airplanes? I think not.

"Fetishes" on the other hand, if you can't get it up, or off, without {fetish X}? THAT can be a problem...

"Anime Foot Fetish" a specialist website for looking at cartoons of people's feet... usually women and girls... I wish I were kidding...

sbeelz,
"An addiction is a behavior pattern in which a person seeks a certain stimulus repeatedly over time, which they cannot stop EVEN IN THE FACE OF NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES"

So, you are saying Bill Clinton was addicted to Monica Lewisnki. Sorry, bad behavior is not an 'addiction' just 'cause it feels good.

Or anyone who is overweight is 'addicted' to McDonalds. They keep eating it inspite of the negative consequences.

Well... pretty much every guy I know, 99.9 percent, watches porn online. Unless I notice a sudden drop in dudes trying to do things with real ladies, I'm not really too worried.

Gerry, I thought you were smart enough to avoid using BS strawman arguments.

"Based on that thinking, anything is an addition because everything you do is linked to brain chemistry. Deciding to do anything requires your brain to release a chemical."

Nobody, I repeat NOBODY, claimed that addiction is any behavior that is linked to brain chemistry. An addiction is a behavior pattern in which a person seeks a certain stimulus repeatedly over time, which they cannot stop EVEN IN THE FACE OF NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES. A habit of drinking alcohol is not an addiction. A habit of continuing to drink alcohol even after that habit has caused you to alienate friends and family, lose a job, etc, is an addiction. Enjoying porn repeatedly isn't evidence of an addiction. But continuing to watch porn if it's harming your ability to have an intimate relationship with a person you love IS. Addiction is very clearly a mental illness.

"once I finish, I don't really have a desire to do it again, at least not right away"

I'm asking this as someone who's never done drugs, but isn't that the same for, say...a heroin addict? They get temporary relief and don't feel the urge again?

It can definitely be addicting, though it's more the urge to satisfy a basic human need than something like a drug. It's more like binge eating, I think.

@danagamer- lolwut? The performers might more closely fit the norm of what is considered sexually attractive or desirable than most people, but the sex in most porn is terrible. I've found maybe a handful of scenes where the performers actually seem into it. I correct that- in most porn the dudes look into it. But I'm really not into watching a bored woman getting pounded by an overly enthusiastic bro, which is most of the porn I've found.

What they fail to mention is porn is ten times better than reality, so why bother.

I liked the comparison to gambling addiction, but the thing about pr0n is that once I finish, I don't really have a desire to do it again, at least not right away, so it's not exactly like an addiction per se. It's not as if I watch pr0n for the dialogue or story, so if I'm not horny I just don't watch it. Simply put, there's more to it than straight neurochemical addiction.

Stupid libretard thinking.

Based on that thinking, anything is an addition because everything you do is linked to brain chemistry. Deciding to do anything requires your brain to release a chemical.

When character flaws are described as "addition" you take away part from serious additions. It's too common to be important. Much the same as calling alcoholism a "disease". It is not a disease. Alcohol is a drug and can be an addition, but addition is not a disease.

Oh, poor me, I'm an addict, I drink beer while browsing porn! Poor me! Can I get disability checks for that?

While drug addiction and porn "addiction" may share some similarities, acting as if the two are truly comparable is flat out wrong and misleading.

Porn, like Anything even remotely enjoyable in life, can be habit forming. Habits and addictions are similar in the way a neurosis is similar to a psychosis. One hardly has an impact on your everyday life, the other destroys it completely.

This video causes me to doubt the video-makers credibility as any sort of presenter of scientific fact or theory.
