The Porn Effect and Matthew Fradd

For the past several weeks I have been posting updates on Matthew Fradd’s journey to spread Truth in relation to the unfathomable evils of pornography amidst our jaded world. Below is Matthew’s latest interview and is this weeks Wednesday’s Inspiration. Please watch it and spread this Truth. His website is The Porn Effect. 

One thought on “The Porn Effect and Matthew Fradd

  1. If Maura allows me to speculate about this subject here is something I’ve been thinking about: it seems to me that due to the explosion of media and information technology we’ve all become more than a little bit insecure about the huge options for mate selection we now have. My suspicion is that we know and expect things about each other in a way no other generation has.

    Isn’t pornography a symptom of this problem?

    Women feel incredible pressure to be as much like the unrealistic standard of attractiveness and allure presented by actresses in pornographic media. But, of course, a real woman is not going to be much like a professional sex artist!

    I’m just guessing here, but I doubt sexual congress, at least initially, is as ecstatic and riveting an event as the media often portrays it. It seems more likely to be something awkward that two faithful persons grow to perfect and enjoy together with the passage of time and within the safety of their commitment.

    But, how many men are now expecting something unrealistic about sex as a result of over exposure to it?

    Or, couldn’t the same point be made about the expectations of men by women created by romantic literature and media? The only man a woman should love is the most manliness, successful, powerful, high status specimen she can get. Potential suitors are ignored or actively spurned because of a misappropriation of desire.

    In either case, neither influences help to teach men and women how to love and marry another well-suited person. In my opinion, much of this is caused by the loss of gracious mystery that a more modest and bygone society expected of its members. Today, we know and expect too much of each other.
