At some age most of the people are addicted to watch porn some get over it early, some take time and some enjoy it for life as some secrete activity. Is watching porn can change someone's thinking about the word outside screen? or it is just an activity of entertainment?
Well i think it can change one's way of thinking what do you think?

All depends on the mentality of that person. At the early stage of human life people tend to have curiosity to know about their opposite sex but I don't think it can change someone's way of thinking.

It's a really good point Sushanta Kashyap but here i am taking about addiction to porn. A desire that doesn't end no matter how many one has watched, no matter if one is in a relationship. I came across an article "Pornography a road to hell" and then i thought to discuss this here.

I agree with the majority stating it depends on the person and their mentality.

The person addicted to porn has a strong, or persistent residual, belief that sex equates to being loving and loved. When in fact, it is being lustful and lusted (desired for sexual pleasure and relief). It has nothing to do with real love (the unconditional type). If we cut to the chase of it all, it is about exploiting self, as a being, to satisfy the ego-self which always seeks validation. Porn is an easy way for the ego to gain validation (worthy of love) though it is all imagined.

As long as they hang onto that conditional belief, they will always know that porn will satisfy their imagination of being so-called loving or worthy of love. Once the porn behaviour is over, they inevitably find themselves back to their unsatisfactory conditional beliefs about love.

To answer the thread question. Practicing porn, or conditional love, is missing the point. In other words, yes, it is a threat because it prolongs untrue beliefs which contributes to the human personality.

Yes, porn can change your way of thinking

I was a porn addict myself, and I can tell you with certainty. When you get addicted, you will start seeing women only as an "object of lust". Even to this day, whenever I see a woman I can't help but fantasize her in lewd ways.

So yeah, it destroys any chance to have a healthy relationship.

I think porn can distort our view and expectations about sexual intercourse. I agree that some people may be able to separate their porn fantasies with real-life sex, while others may have their imaginations mixed.

It can change a person's way of thinking, especially if they are addicted to porn. The most damage it can do is the amount of time and mental energy wasted on watching porn and thinking about it. That time and energy can be used to do other productive tasks that create something.

Watching porn can change a person's mind, and can also affect their reality.

Cheers!

Well depends. Sometimes it's better to 'choke the chicken' and go back to work instead of thinking about going out and hitting on girls. Depends on your situation really. Totally.

I think porn can enrich your life in some ways, while in other situations it can be dangerous. In my opinion, it really depends on the reason why you're watching porn.

If you're watching it to run away from something, you might want to be very careful. Also when porn becomes the norm for you to have pleasure, you may want to stop this right now before it's too late.

It becomes especially dangerous when you haven't had a lot of sex yet. Porn doesn't equal reality and if you start to believe that what you see in porn is what actually happens in real life, you're going into your sexual activities with the completely wrong mindset.

I would personally also stay away if porn gives you a guilty feeling afterward. This can be a dangerous thing because now it's something that's affecting your peace of mind.

Overall I think porn is fine as long as you watch it in moderation. You also need to realize that porn is porn and this doesn't equal reality. Sure, you could run into someone who likes to do the stuff you saw online, but chances are very slim that this happens.

Hope this helps :)

All the best,
Mick
