Who needs to have sex with a real person when you have porn?
Yup, that’s the thought these days, the “pornosexuality” phenomenon growing as people are linking their sexual orientation “solely to porn,” according to The Telegraph:
One self-identified pornosexual said: “If I had to choose to have one or the other for the rest of my life, I would choose porn over real sex any day.”
The availability of free, amateur porn online, and the anonymity it offers, has been identified as just one factor behind the rise in the phenomenon:
In 1991, there were fewer than 90 porn magazines in the US, according to Medical Daily, compared to millions of websites today.
Pornosexuality is said to be particularly common among young people as they have had access to the internet since puberty and porn is therefore more likely to have been formative in their sexual development.
But I’m going to go with marriage, family and sex therapist, Amanda Pasciucco’s assumption:
Unfortunately, in my years of practicing sex therapy, anxiety and fear of rejection has led to people identifying as pornosexuals.
Maybe once they plucked up the courage to have a real, physical sexual experience, they would feel less likely to use pornosexuality as a defining feature of themselves?
Perhaps not. Each to their own at the end of the day.
This conclusion came to light after the UK’s National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children said in March that “children as young as 12 worry they may be “addicted” to watching porn”.
Heads up: if this goes any further, soon we’re going to have to say QUILTBAGP (queer and questioning, intersex, lesbian, transgender and two-spirit, bisexual, asexual and ally, and gay and genderqueer AND pornosexual).
Tongue tied already.
