The Porn Rant: a reflection of men and sex

As we go over the insanity of reality porn, there are two common themes you will find: everything is an invitation for sex, and men use power for sex. There will be moments in my posts where I want to discuss those themes. But I’m also mindful that these posts are meant to be humorous and satirical.

So rather than go on long diatribes, I’ll instead drop a link and refer you to this page, “The Porn Rant.”

Everything is an invitation for sex

Reality porn is insane. I’ve seen men have sex with robbers too horny to actually rob, random girls at a pool hold a dick-sucking contest with a gardener, and mothers have sex with neighbors for merely fixing a computer.

What’s the point in selling the consumer on unlikely scenarios that lead to sex? Answer: the real fantasy is having sex that comes easy. Men would love a world where they can get pussy absent of any social effort.

That’s what reality porn eliminates: social effort and work. Reality porn creates a universe where women are horny all the time and view any moment as a good one to get some dick, and all men have to do is be readily present. Everything is an invitation for sex: a smile, a look, a favor, a bikini, being frustrated, being a mother, or just being a woman.

No big deal. That is unless you’re a heavy consumer of porn, to the point where your only understanding of sex comes from what you see. So now a great conversation with a girl must mean they want to have sex.

Because that’s what porn logic dictates. When we wonder why men think everything is a sign, or can’t grasp how sex works, or are socially inept and don’t know how to act toward women, it’s not hard to see why.

Porn is a reflection of how men would prefer to have sex and feeds enough of that reflection to cause the over-consumer to think that preference can become reality. We don’t want to fuck yoga instructors, the girl in the next cubicle, or a sister’s friend. We just want to believe it’s possible.

So when a woman asks for our help with building Ikea furniture and hugs us as a way of saying “thank you,” we can’t tell if that is a sign of sexual interest or, you know, a general human act of sociability. Porn tells us to lean toward the former. And thus, we do, because we’re bumbling sex-crazed idiots.

Men use power for sex

Dave Chappelle once joked that if men could live in a cardboard box and still get sex, they would. Instead, we buy lavish cars, homes, get high-level jobs, and go on a quest for social power. Because that is what it takes to get the ladies.

We see it every day in Hollywood, law enforcement, government, the workplace, adult entertainment venues, and life. If a trash man can use some slither of control or power over a woman to get what he wants, he will. Porn is a reflection of that.

It can be the father bribing a babysitter, the boss groping the office manager, or the photographer getting too touchy with a model. In life, we easily identify it as a form of harassment or dudes being creeps. But in porn, it’s just men getting what the status of being a man should warrant.

With the exception of interracial porn (which is the reverse of what I’m about to type), most porn is told from the perspective of the woman gratifying the man in exchange for something the man can supposedly offer. Doesn’t matter if it’s money, social status, an improved lifestyle, or penis. If we feel we have anything to offer, women should hence offer themselves.

While disgusting, I get why we believe we can use our male status and power for sex. We’ve always been taught that we can and that doing so is normal. Reality porn just further perpetuates that. What’s not to believe?
