What Porn Does To The Mind and Kids

I was exposed to porn at a tender age. I was in high school. Some of my classmates brought porn magazines to school and I enjoy looking through it. I was a teenager then.

At home, I would never be allowed to watch a movie where a man and a woman kissed, let a lone watch pornography. We never had a VCR player, just our National black and white TV. My parents did their best to protect us. This was in 1995 to 1998. Internet was not as common or available on mobile phones as we have it now.

It is a different ball game today. Pornography is not just available on VCD/DVDs, but they are freely distributed on the internet and anyone can access it.

What does porn do to the human mind? Watch this TED Video. I completely agree with the speaker—porn fills the mind with fantasy. Like wrestling, porn is staged, an act and not the real thing.

Porn is not sex education for kids. Kids won’t be able to know the difference. I was too afraid of my parents to experiment with sex.

Parents have the responsibility to protect their kids against the effect of pornography. Porn influences pop culture. Many of the musical videos are like porn with clothes on. They are half dressed with sexually suggestive dance moves.

Should adult view porn?

This conversation will bring some form of division when we start discussing it. I have heard couples say they watch porn to improve their sex lives. But if we look at how the actors of porn are sort, w’ll see that they dehumanize women, men and even kids.

Porn dehumanizes. It is not the real thing. It distorts sex and should be avoided by both adults and kids.

This won’t stop the production of porn movies though. It is a huge industry and the demand for it is huge. But as a parent and someone that wants to build an emotionally safe relationship, porn should be avoided.

I personally avoid porn for the reasons I have stated above and because I know God frowns upon it. Sex is for husbands and wives and it is sacred.

Shooting in auto mode (top). Shooting in manual (below).

I was able to capture and bring to focus the clock display on the Nokia Lumia 920 while shooting in manual below. 

At the top, I was shooting in auto and the camera chose not to bring to focus the clock displayed on the Nokia Lumia 920.

My eyes have just been opened to the benefit of shooting in manual modes. You can vary the exposure triangles (aperture, ISO and shutter speed) as you like.

You don’t read about the exposure triangle and then master using them. You can only master it by shooting pictures in manual modes and experimenting. 

Let the learning begin. I’m just scared that I’ll start longing for a proper pro camera soon. Very soon.
Spirit testing.

I saw a man at the mall that was giving me tutorial at the wine section. Black Label. Blue Label. Gold Label.

He said, folks shouldn’t use salary to buy wine, but use only the left overs. What he said.

Teach me how to breathe without breaking

adebolarayo:

Teach me how to breathe without breaking
I am tired from holding myself straight
from trying not to inhale too deeply
lest air stab me in the chest.
I am tired of trapping soul in blood and bones, so
teach me quick,
I am running out of breath.

It can be very tiring at times. It is allowed to be tired. But we need strength so that we don’t tire out.
