According to an item on RNZ, Kiwis are the world's fifth-largest consumers of pornography on the site Pornhub, which releases nationality breakdowns of its users every year. Not bad for a country of less than 6 million!

Huge difference. Based on total number of views from each country though we don't even make it on the top 20 list, so it's not as bad as it's being made out to be.

Kind of like asking what is asking what is wrong with alcohol. Nothing, except where it becomes an addiction , as Nick Willis came out in public a while back.  . 

 

I would think males that dislike porn would be more the exception than the norm. 

 

But it is one of those things where admitting to viewing porn would be like admitting you voted for trump ha ha.

I reckon he'd have performed better if he kept watching it and stayed quiet...

I think he 'performed' quite well considering he won the election. Not to mention did what no-one thought it was possible under any circumstances.

What is wrong with porn? 



Do the people in those films look happy to you? Who appears to hold the 'power' in those movies? Do you think the people in those films would 'choose' it as a career over something else? Even though they may 'choose' to participate in it, what you're watching is abuse and is harmful. It is exploitative. How can you take pleasure in that? Never mind the other problems with it like encouraging misogyny, sexual addiction and youth's skewed perception of intimacy.

Seems to me porn is similar to watching street people paid to fight on camera. Are they adults doing it willingly for pay? Is it therefore ok to support that and normalise it by watching it since I enjoy it? Maybe we could ask them to cut body parts off next if they are willing and we are paying.

There is nothing wrong with sex, there is a lot wrong with the pornography industry.

What about home-made, amateur porn? People making porn because presumably they enjoy other people watching them.

 

Maybe youths already have skewed views of intimacy, limited by whatever their parents thought was "normal"?

OK, I am absolutely no expert on porn but I have seen multiple interviews over the years with actors in the industry and many (women) insist that it is their chosen profession and they do enjoy it. I can't judge if this is true or not but it is what people claim. I don't doubt that some porn certainly is abusive and probably should be illegal for that reason, but I don't see a problem with stuff that just shows people having different kinds of sex and enjoying it. Maybe it is also worth pointing out that according to the article I cited, 35% of porn consumers in New Zealand are women, also above the international average.

You're watching the wrong porn, or haven't watched any since the 70's/80's.

That could be said of so many jobs in so many industries.

I seem to recall another 'survey' a year or two back which claimed that Kiwis were amongst the most promiscuous nations as well....
