[2010 Sept] Gail Dines Interview: Should We Worry Whether Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality?
[2010 Oct] Porn has hijacked sexuality and is destroying men by Gail Dines
What I found in my interviews, is that the more pornography men watch, the less able they are to develop intimate relationships. Also whatís interesting is they lose interest in real women because the pornography is so hardcore ó itís industrial-strength sex ó anything less looks bland and boring. Also, the men think they should be performing like the men in pornography, they think their penises should look like that, they think they should be able to sexually perform for hours like the men do. What they donít realize is a lot of the men in pornography are on Viagra, thatís why itís so possibleÖ And they begin to really see women in terms of objects. Not as somebody to have relationships with, but as somebody to do something to. Sex becomes something like making hate to a womanís body. They donít make love in pornography, they make hate.

Iíve interviewed child rapists, and some of them actually started lookingÖ They didnít want to go to illegal child pornography, so they started with the legal so-called child pornography, and then basically matured into child pornography. And for some of them, the distance between looking at child pornography and raping a child was six months. [2010 Sept] Gail Dines Interview: Should We Worry Whether Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality?
