I do not enjoy pornography. This is not to say that I find the female body unattractive in pictures and film, far from it. But what I mean when I say pornography is that anything I have ever seen from the back room has always contained men and women performing the sex act without the underlying love, or even the facsimile of sensuality, to make it erotic to me. To my way of thinking, it's like viewing the human body without a soul. When a person looks at a corpse (not a picture, which is totally different) but a corpse wherever it may lie, there is something visceral that tells them it is a tragedy. Something has gone out of that body and it is no longer even remotely human. It doesn't matter that its shaped like a human with all of the features, it simply is not human. For me, pornography is the same. The participants are not mutually enjoying the act. I make no distinction here between one person enjoying and one not, for either situation is a vulgar misrepresentation of the act of love in my estimation. I even go so far as to say that I can sense, for I have no better term for it, the genuine nature of masturbation in video. To this point I only refer to female masturbation since I have never watched, nor do I have any desire to watch, a man in this capacity. I have seldom seen a woman performing masturbation in film without knowing, perhaps by something in her manner, that she isn't doing it for her own enjoyment. I have seen a woman masturbate and enjoy the act on film before, but only once that I remember. I found this to be highly erotic. I am not judging those of you who do enjoy it. If you like watching pornography then feel free to say why you do without feeling your position threatened by me. Comments on this subject are welcome.
