Is Comparing Porn To Romcoms Really Honest?

https://www.eviemagazine.com/post/is-comparing-porn-to-romcoms-really-honest

So, I really wanted to be fair here. Even though I’m a woman and wrote this for a women’s article, I have a lot of awesome male readers and I get that some things that are a big deal to us aren’t to men and vice versa.

I’m pretty sad about it, but my editor changed my conclusion, and that’s always hard on a writer (especially with a topic like this). So here’s the original, less biased conclusion that I wanted to get out there. Because I get it. The comparison is pretty balanced when taking the difference in the male brain and female brain into account:

Living in a fantasy isnโ€™t healthy for anyone. Whether women are crushing on a romantic-comedy lead, or men are comulsively masterbating to porn, neither is really healthy for real-world bonds and connections. The comparison does raise a lot of questions, and bring up issues that may be different, but offer a similar perspective from the opposite sex. 

Either way, in order to find fulfillment in life and relationships we need to invest our time in better real-world endeavors to balance those fantasies that may be fun to explore every once in a while. If we did that maybe men would respect women (even those who make porn) a little more, and women wouldnโ€™t be seeking some fictional man to satisfy their needs.

    ๐Ÿ’œ The Moment We ARE Gender Neutral in Our DISCOURSE!!! and Discussion ๐Ÿธ is The Moment We ARE Able to Acknowledge The Obvious Differences Betwixt ALL Genders such as InterGender, HermAphrodites, ASexual, Gay et al EveryOne; the Primary Purpose of Sex is Energy Exchange, Secondarily it’s The Ultimate Expression of Energy Exchange, a Child, Lastly, Way Down on The List, it’s ALL about Performance, Orgasm and a Measure of just Where The Coupling Up, The Partnership is…hence Sexual Affairs and Break Ups over a Perception of CHEATING!!! yet The CHEATING!!! is NOT!!! The Sex; just as Any Sexual Swinging, Spouse Swapping Couple WILL!!! Tell Us, The CHEATING!!! is The InGenuity, InAuthenticy and DisHonesty in Our Sexual Behaviours, ergo Be Sexually Exclusive or Agree a Swinging, Open Relationship with YOUR!!! Partner or Break Up, ergo, Be Careful Who YOU!!! Exchange YOUR!!! Sexual Energy with whether “RomCom” or “Porn” EveryBody
