Problem definition

Porn is probably one of the most avoided topics in India. Some countries thing it’s OK, some say it’s illegal, but as Indians we have a different mind-set. Before actually going into whether its legal or not, we have rejected it straightforward based on its ill effects on the mental health, and this time we may not be wrong – scientific research from the western countries have shown that porn does have a bad effect on a person’s intellect and mental health. Here is what it can do to us.

Addiction

Watching porn is highly addictive. According to research porn could be as addictive as cigarette and alcohol, but with only a mental effect. On average 65% of the people watch porn at least once a week.

Violence

Porn breeds violence. The way women are treated in a porn movie doesn’t relate to the vision for women we have for a better society. On one hand we pledge to have a better life for women and on the other, porn destroys that vision and allows us to treat women as an object for material pleasure.

Wrong signal.

Sex has been treated as a divine thing in ancient India. It is considered to be an ultimate form of intimacy between married couples, but again porn gives us the wrong signal. It’s better to read the ancient text on “Kama-sutra” to learn about sex than to watch porn and be misguided for life.

Concentration

Porn also kills our concentration. It distracts us from our goals and could ultimately lead us to the wrong path of digression. Due to its highly addictive nature it comes in the way of our dreams and many teenagers have fallen a trap to this and have done miserably bad in their academics than their actual potential.

Married life

Porn is one of the best tools to destroy your happily married life. It takes love away from sex and all we are left with is violence and brutality. Many people have admitted that they tried to do similar things to their partners, which porn has taught them – and the result was disastrous.

Conclusion

Its simple economics. As long as there is a demand, there will be a supply. We can control the demand by not watching porn, and supply will automatically reduce. The future is in our hands and we must make sure we create a better one for the next generation.
