X-rated Internet is changing our lives …..

e954b09dcc1c73124937a90bed9a0bd2Everyone knows that the Internet is changing our lives, mostly because someone in the media has uttered that exact phrase every single day since 1993. However, it certainly appears that the main thing the Internet has accomplished is the normalization of amateur pornography. There is no justification for the amount of naked people on the World Wide Web, many of whom are clearly (clearly!) doing so for non-monetary reasons.

Where were these people fifteen years ago? Were there really millions of women in 1986 turning to their husbands and saying, ‘You know, I would love to have total strangers masturbate to images of me deep-throating a titanium dildo, but there’s simply no medium for that kind of entertainment. I guess we’ll just have to sit here and watch Midsummer Murders again.

Being interesting has been replaced by being identifiable – I doubt that pornography has been good for the advancement of society, but I suspect it’s done wonders for the advancement of computer technology. Real people are actively trying to live like fake people, so real people are no less fake. Every comparison becomes impractical. This is why the impractical has become totally acceptable, impracticality almost seems cool.

Is internet to blame?
