Pornography: A Conspiracy Against Sex

Ever went to Delhi’s Palika Bajaar? If not, let me tell you it’s a place known for everything from clothes to crooks (they can sell you something for 500 bucks which could have been overpriced even at 100). But that’s not what makes it attractive to everybody. People like me- and they are in huge majority- go there to explore the gigantic collections of pirated CDs and DVDs.

When you go to such a shop, they will literally grab you and show what they have to offer. Then somebody among them would give you a sly smile, and ask sympathetically, “Sir! Aap to abhi jawaan hain?Us type ki films chahiye? Humaare paas sab hai- XX, XXX, XXXX. Aap bol ke to dekho.”

I always used to behave like a shareef-type-bachcha and refused with an innocent smile. But then one day I decided to take the bull by the horn. I purchased a DVD specially recommended by the shop-keeper who had claimed having seen it pachaason-baar.

But when I went home and saw it, what I found was completely nauseating and revolting. Just imagine people pumping each other with their mega-apparatus as if they were imitating the dogs outside the window. I used to put more emotions into the irritating P.T. I had to do every morning in my school than they were putting into the favourite sport of the planet. And the detachment on their face? It would have shamed even the most ascetic and enlightened sear of the Himalayas.

Heck, I couldn’t continue even for 15 minutes. And that includes the time taken in changing the movie clips, attending a phone call and closing eyes with disgust thrice. Then I thought about the people who claim to have an inborn addiction for such stuff and can keep on watching them for dozens of hours at a stretch. They must be superhuman beings, I felt.

People say such kind of films and literature are spreading perversion and overactive sex culture in society. I’d like to bow my head in disagreement. I’d say these are the best anti-sex stuff I’ve ever seen in life. Watching that movie made me abhor sex more than any saffron-wrapped, ‘celibate’ morning saint on AASTHA channel would have ever done. I really felt sex is sin. And doing it over and over again with multiple partners is a punishment for the sin rather than the sin itself.

I don’t know what you feel about the topic. But there are people I’ve talked to and they nod their head in agreement when I shoot my views. Pornography is not that pro-sex. Or is it?

Hi. I happened to be bloghopping and came across your's. I think you write very well. =]

I agree with you about how pornography is degrading and revolting for most people. I think the affliction that some people have for this kind of pornography is a little twisted, if you ask me.

I completely agree with you. People buy it, so people sell it. But what are they doing to their souls? Where is their conscience? Very, very sad. (Just passing through and caught your blog.)

Well.. I guess youhave not seen any more porn after that DVD? There are different kinds of porn, you see.. for different appetites and preferances... try out the other types.. ask for a XX... you migh just like it. XX is just pumping... XX is more aesthetic -has a story and all.

Keep Exploring.. Cheers!
