Guy tells girl he no longer watches porn

Submitted by gary on

I have a quick story to share concerning this issue. I've been a little worried myself lately about how girls will react when I tell them that I don't fap/watch porn. Well, last night a girl texted me asking how my weekend was, yadda yadda. We texted for probably a couple hours. Anyways, at one point she asked what I was doing and I told her I was watching a movie. She said, "if you want real entertainment why not watch porn? " I think she was trying to get me to sext with her or something idk.

Now, a British teenager allegedly has collapsed after a lifetime of eating McNuggets, and only McNuggets.

Researchers in the US have linked cultural obsession with social media - BlackBerrys, Facebook, Twitter and other devices of the digital age - with the same insidious neural pathways that trigger cravings in alcoholics and drug addicts. What's more, residents living abroad in predominantly expatriate cities such as Abu Dhabi and Dubai, where Facebook and MySpace are overwhelmingly popular, may be especially at risk.

DISCONNECTED: A day without media

By Amanda Gage

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

KU students spent 24 hours disconnected from media.

“This year for Ramadan I fasted. No food or beverage of any kind other than water between sun up and sun down. It was, without a doubt, one of the hardest things I have ever done. The media fast was harder.”

BBC Radio 4 programme: Children & Internet Porn

Submitted by gary on

From a blogger - listen to a snippet of a BBC radio program on kids and porn.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today I heard a troubling discussion of the phenomenon of Internet pornography addiction amongst youngsters. Anecdotal evidence suggests that this may be widespread. In the public interest I have converted the relevant part of the BBC Radio 4 programme (Broadcasting House) into an mp3 and => made it available to you <=. I hope this won’t upset the BBC!
