4 Things I Learned About Life – From Porn. {Adult}

What I Learned From Porn

“Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

When I was younger (before the internet), some young men I knew bought magazines for their fix of nakedness.

I’d roll my eyes when they said that they only bought them “for the articles.”

But actually, there were some great articles in those magazines—even though those young men were obviously kidding.

Now, in the age of freely available nakedness, I laugh when men say that they’ve learned a lot about sex from porn.

I’m amused because that would be like me saying I’ve learned a lot about golf from watching Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore. Except, I have to admit that I have learned something about life from watching porn.

Of course, there’s porn and then there’s porn.

Now, I’m not going to curate a list of good porn for you here, but suffice it to say that violence and degradation against women—or men for that matter—is out. (I expect some readers will challenge this with their opinion that all porn is degrading in nature, but I’ll have to politely disagree.)

Please hear me out.

I may be a complete nerd, sitting around thinking up life lessons while watching a rather scintillating movie, but here’s what I’ve learned from porn about life well-lived.

“The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself” ~ Anais Nin
