Consider a Porn Fast This Lent

I was reading NY Magazine today, and found an article that I found disturbing.

Now, remember, it's NYMag, which means that its research may be questionable.  However, FWIW, the writer says that men are losing interest in sex, due to spending that physical and emotional energy on porn.

It does make some sense.  Whether or not users realize it, people are meant to bond over sex.  So, when he's JUST "releasing some excess energy" while viewing, he may also be developing an emotional bond, as well.  But, being virtual, it's not a fully satisfying, in the emotional sense, so, the user keeps going back, again, and again, trying to get that emotional need satisfied.

It might be a good thing for guys (and women, if that is their habit) to take an extended vacation from online "sex".

Consider it a Lenten Fast.
