do a search on ATS looking for threads on
Sex and you`ll hardly find any. Thats Odd.
Maybe, but do a search in any thread for intellectual
masturbation, and you'll find plenty. Typing-based discussion probably simply isn't
highly compatible with the sort of energies involved with sex. You probably won't find a lot of sex on the radio either.
Is limiting ones own porn-consumption to one video a day instead of ten imposing "artificial scarcity" or merely a matter of discipline so that energy
can also be invested elsewhere?
I dislike calling debate points, but Straw man
You went from suggesting that having a "refridgerator full of chocolate" would tend to make one not like chocolate as much to now talking about
watching "ten porn videos a day." Personally, in my entire life I don't think I've ever known anyone to watch even one porn video a day let alone ten.
I think these are both extremes somewhat beyond useful for our discussion. I understand the metaphor, but let's try to keep our metaphors in the
context of the topic.
How much is "appropriate" is likely to vary. Personally I spend more time watching kitten videos on youtube than porn videos. But that's simply
because I personally have more need to vent at the heart chakra than at the genitals, and I recognize that the basic motivation for me wacthing a
video like this
is essentially the same as the motivation for somebody else
watching Debbie Does Dallas. There's a need to release energies into expression, and a lack of a convenient partner with whom to express them. The
difference is simply the nature/level/frequency/chakra of those energies. If somebody else "needs" to watch ten porns a day, or masturbate ten times a
day...I see no particular benefit from telling them they can't or shouldn't. I'm guessing probably most people don't, and yes, I think there's a lot
of "push" for sexual outlet in our society that is unjustified, and yes I think that it's motivated by desire to drain people's energies so they have
less available for higher chakra function. Odds are good that the more people are thinking about sex, the less they're thinking about love and
But...perceiving sex as a "sacred" thing that must be conserved and honored and adored...I think is misunderstanding it. Sex is a valid means by which
people may relate to each other. And if one has more sexual energy than one can comfortably accomodate, it's not unreasonable to "vent" it through
means such as masturbation. And some people may need to do that more than others.
