Consuming Porn, regretfully? Here are 5 workable ways to breakthrough

– By Aditi Gulati

Everything we do, watch or hear has an impact on us. Though, the amount of impact does vary. Pornography has thus been a much debated topic over a last few years. People have now started to question its free sexistence over the internet; it’s devastating impact on consumers of varied age groups. Porn undoubtedly harms; our concept of love and romance, our idea about sex and gender, makes us appreciate and find pleasure from brutality and violence, deteriorates our level of respect for ourselves and others, makes us yearn for a faulty and a materialistic relationship, completely damages our capability of appreciating raw beauty which is not glossed-up with cosmetics or fake erotic emotions.

With deepening internet penetration and technological advancements, today the content is freely available to whosoever wishes to browse over. And, this happens thus to be a matter of great worry because children at tender age are finding Porn more entertaining than cartoons and healthy outdoor games. Soft minds absorb without filtering, accept without questioning and reflect without first understanding symbolism of their behaviour. And this goes on as the child grows.

So, just in case you happen to be one of those who desperately navigate to websites catering Porn, consume it out of addiction and later regret it, then here’s a list of a few things you could do to work on your addiction-

Dive into Music

Music is believed to have therapeutic effect on to its listeners. It has the capacity to transport you from your emotional current to all together a different land. But, again I suggest you better be selective at picking up the genre for yourself. Instrumental music; violin, piano, sitar, flute, guitar, the sounds produced out of these instruments help you distract from your desperation for submitting to Porn addiction.

Browse about sex trafficking

A lot of people do not know much about sex trafficking and the ones who know about it choose to ignore it. Pornography is also considered as filmed prostitution wherein not everybody comes with their choice; many are dragged into it just that it happens in the brothels. The one time solution is to sensitise people about the gravity of the issue, so that they can sympathise and empathise with the dolled-up Porn stars. Sensitisation would help cut down the demand for Porn.

Watching a romantic-comedy film

Watching romantic comedy films or sitcoms will help you register back the lost picture of true romance. Though, films are fictional and gross, yet they definitely do successfully distract you when your urge of watching Porn drives you almost insane.

Vent-out frustration on the treadmill

Most people tend to consume Porn because the element of sexual violence entertains them like nothing else. So, to deal with the ever boiling frustration due to work pressure or love betrayal, you can instead go to a gym and burn your calories along with bucketful of frustration. This would help you channelize your anger and do constructive good.

Go have an offline hang-out

I believe, the more you are connected to the people in the offline world, the more close you will find yourself in comprehensible sync with the ground reality and would thereby like to court and marry a girl in real time, instead of staying over the internet and getting aroused with the fake and brutal sex filmed and freely made available over various websites; Porn.
