French women tuning in to porn, study says

So what's your take on this?

Hi Gary,

Is this about women feeling a desperate need to fit into a man's world? Are the Harlequin romances just not cutting it anymore? Is this a consequence of lesbian relationships and heterosexual relationships being unsatisfactory? Has Facebook become boring? Is this just young unexperienced women trying to gain some understanding before they face a real partner?

I was curious to see that masturbation is considered "one of the great taboos of female sexuality". I didn't know that. Is this a sign that they are taking charge of their own sexuality rather than being overfocussed on a partner?

Why do you think this is happening?

Cheers,

"Arnold"

It takes me no wonder

"And of course it raises the issue of masturbation, one of the great taboos of female sexuality. There is a real generational break, with women in their forties and younger much more willing to admit the practice."

Interesting article indeed. I heard of a study saying that 30% of Internet porn users were women nowadays. After all, the fact that men are getting aroused mainly by what they see does not imply that women are not visual at all! In fact, watching something on satelite TV that stimulated me sexually was actually one of the triggers for me to fall back into the habit of M and O - and that after 2 1/2 years of sobriety!

Arnold, it may apply to some women that they are wanting to take charge of their own sexuality rather than being overfocussed on a partner. I definitely do not belong to this group. I have always longed for a fulfilling marital relationship in every aspect of life (including sexuality), but if there is no man in sight, it's too easy to resort to such practices :-(.

Thanks!

Thanks Proverbs,

I once saw a store in the East End of Vancouver BC Canada advertising "Vibes, Dildos" on it's storefront. It was clearly targeting women. I felt a little sad seeing that because I got the impression that rather than strengthening an interest in Consciousness, Healing, Joining, and Love (which tend to be fairly common interests amongst women and rarer amongst men in my observation) it was strengthening separation and lust. Perhaps, as you suggest there is an element of despair in there too.

So where, other than this website, do people go to meet other people who share an interest in Healing at this depth? Will websites dedicated to healing take the place of porn someday? I sure hope so!

Sincerely,

"Arnold"
