This guy stopped watching porn — and he wants you to know why. Gender activist Ran Gavrieli felt that most of the images he saw in porn encouraged negative, even violent, attitudes toward women, despite a recent wave of feminist porn. So he pulled the plug, and found that his personal sex life and private fantasies became much more fulfilling.
In his talk at TEDxJaffa, he advocates for physically and emotionally-safe sex, as well as erotica that shows a wider range of fulfilling sexual experiences — including the intimacy of human connection, laughter, and touch. Watch his talk here.
This is so, so important. And I specifically remember times my ex-boyfriend would talk about something degrading as hell and how he “wanted to try it” because he “saw it in porn”. It makes me sick to think about that…
Yet another reason why I stopped watching porn and also stopped my porn blog.
