TBF: Pornography

"Closer" (Nine Inch Nails)

You let me violate you
You let me desecrate you
You let me penetrate you
You let me complicate you
Help me
I broke apart my insides
Help me
I've got no soul to sell
Help me
The only thing that works for me
Help me get away from myself

I wanna fuck you like an animal
I wanna feel you from the inside
I wanna fuck you like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god

You can have my isolation
You can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith
You can have my everything
Help me
Tear down my reason
Help me
It's your sex I can smell
Help me
You make me perfect
Help me become somebody else

I wanna fuck you like an animal
I wanna feel you from the inside
I wanna fuck you like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god

All through every forest
Above the trees
Within my stomach
Scraped off my knees
I drink the honey
Inside your hive
You are the reason
I stay alive

Imagine it's morning, a woman wakes up, makes breakfast for her family, gives her kids a kiss on the cheek, kisses her husband and leaves for work...

Two hours later that same woman is on all fours on a pool table taking it in the back from a random man while giving a blow job to another man in front of her...

So she goes and fucks all these guys for a day, takes a shower then comes home to make dinner, it's kinda a trip to imagine the pillow talk at the end of the day to her husband.

I'm gonna guess that took you by surprise, and no I didn't describe some twisted dream in the back of my head, That whole scenario is actually the routine for this woman... because she is a porn star.

In today's society pornography has become as common as well...Internet Blogs..(Uh-Oh).

While there are many organizations that are against the idea of pornography, the fact is that porn has been around for hundreds of years. In fact when you think about it, porn is just sex and sex has been around longer than anything else in the world. Sex has been around before the Romans, before the Egyptians... Hell, way before the days of Babylon and Mesopotamia and yet people have issues with it...

Well this time around I've got something to say and I'm gonna say it, so this week on The Brian Factor...

We're talking: PORNOGRAPHY!!!!

That's right so boys whip out those bottles of Jergen's and ladies make sure you got fresh batteries...


Taken from the Greek words "porni" and "grafi" which together translates to "prostitute writing"... kinda makes sense... I guess.


More informally referred to as porn or porno, Pornography is the representation of the human body or sexual activity with the goal of sexual arousal. It is similar to, but distinct from erotica, though the two terms are often used interchangeably.

In general, "erotica" refers to portrayals of sexually arousing material that hold or aspire to artistic or historical merit, whereas "pornography" often connotes the prurient depiction of sexual acts, with little or no artistic value. The line between "erotica" and the term "pornography" (which is frequently considered a pejorative) is often highly subjective. In practice, pornography can be defined merely as erotica that is perceived as "obscene". The definition of what one considers obscene
can differ among persons, cultures and eras. This leaves legal actions by those who oppose pornography open to wide interpretation.

Pornography may use any of a variety of media — printed literature, photos, sculpture, drawings, sound recording, film or video, and may even be performed in a live venue, possibly in front of a live audience. Notably, all of the above may be found on the Internet.

Pornography can also be contrasted with ribaldry, which uses sexual titillation in the service of comedy. The definition of pornography is highly subjective, with generally accepted works of art such as Michelangelo's David being considered pornographic by some people. In a sense therefore, the definition of pornography is as much (or more) to do with the viewer's motive and response, as with the actual material, content or creator's intention.

While imagery of sex has existed for thousands of years, porn as we know it started in it's earliest form during the Victorian era. Early printings that came out recalled the vast exploits of retired or very skilled (often both) prostitutes to serve as the very first Public Service Announcements and was even defined as such in Websters until 1905 when the definition was changed to what we now know it to be.

Over time porn obtained a small following but it was around the second half of the 20th century when porn became a completely different machine entirely. The 50's and 60's brought out racy pics and gentlemen clubs but the 60's helped to push the idea for porn with the already existing concepts of free love and experimentation. With that, porn theaters popped up and then in the 70's things really started going with two very controversial yet impactful films: "Deep Throat" and "Debbie Does Dallas". It brought porn more into the mainstream and in my opinion I think it made the allure of porn what it is today... originally you had a man and a woman have sex on film and before that just a woman going about her day just naked but now people are more daring and thus their porn has to be more daring. Now there are 12 sub categories of porn today:

1 Age-oriented pornography
2 Anal pornography
3 Bisexual pornography
4 Body-feature oriented pornography
5 Bondage/BDSM pornography
6 Fetish pornography
7 Gay pornography
8 Group pornography
9 Lesbian pornography
10 Race-oriented pornography
11 Reality porn
12 Other

I don't know about you guys but I am in no rush to inquire about the "Other".


Naturally a common subject is the objectifying of women, first let us clarify that the use of underage girls is just straight up wrong!!!!!! Girls who are forced into the business as sex slaves equally wrong!!!! As for the women of age and who choose to do it willingly, there is no objectification, no exploitation, no victim and there is no crime, they chose to do it. No matter how much or little they know about the risks, in the end it's still up to you on what to do with it. Back in the old days it was what you'd expect: Bunch of men convince a naive actress into working porn and pay them almost next to nothing and in comparison to now, actually mainstream porn is now a female dominated business, many female stars are paid almost triple what men in the business make and they branch out into behind the scenes and now women are the producers, the directors, they're the managers of other stars and we've even had some branch out into mainstream Hollywood (look at Jenna Jameson and even Traci Lords) and you just can't argue it. Porn is a multi-billion dollar industry, and the ladies are getting a huge chunk of that pie.


The arguements of PRO and CON are limitless, those for will claim that the human body is beautiful work of art and that it should never be hidden away and that sex is in our nature, and that porn is just a tool no different than mainstream Hollywood films to install a sense of fantasy in the veiwer. Those against will claim that it is not God's way or that sex is something only appropriate behind closed doors, or my favorite claim: that it is the root of all human perversion.


I admit that the human body is something that should be admired and respected, and many people are proud of what they got and like to flaunt, to them I say be proud and go live. That's why I've always admired nudists, rain or shine (which usually means for the guys "nuts or no nuts" depending on how cold it is) they're proud of what they got. We come into the world nude, you see yourself naked everyday in the shower. I'm not saying we should walk around naked!!! What I am saying is that a naked body is nothing to be afraid of or something to be offended by.

As for the arguement that all sex should be behind close doors, well that's touch and go. Though I'll admit I don't want to take the bus one day and see two people going at it using a "reverse cowgirl". Mainly cause that takes two seats and then I'm stuck standing the whole time. you should want privacy when you have sex, but if you're into voyuerism then you do what you gotta do.

Porn doesn't make a rapist, I hate that arguement, as a guy you have a million horemones running through you and those who are rapists were already fucked up to begin with, they got rejected for sex and went mental, I'll bet had they watched the Texas Chainsaw Massacre instead of Debbie Does Dallas, then they'd be pyschopaths who chop people up

Not everything that's availible now is the worse in porn, back in 1790 the Marquis De Sade wrote "120 Days Of Sodom" basic story on it, Four rich guys get thier own daughters, four men, four ederly prostitues and sixteen children varying in age from 7 to 16, lock everyone and themselves in a castle and do some of the most twisted perverse sexual acts you could ever imagine. It's a really fucked up book that will definietly scare the kinky outta you. Compared to modern day, porn now is extremely tame.

We all know sex, everyone who reads this column's had it (except me but I'm me so moving on) and really is it sooooo bad?

Finally I'll say it again cause it's one point that can never get through to most people: Compared to the rest of the world... WE ARE RELATIVELY TAME!!! In Austrailia thier soap operas are SOFT CORE PORN, you'll see stuff that you see usually on Cinemax after dark. They have Naked News in Russia, in South America their kid's shows have big breasted women in bikinis displaying numbers and other shit "COUNT THE BOUNCING BOOBS...ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX... HEY I CAN COUNT!!!" Yet here if a woman's breast is exposed then it's a huge deal, if we see pics of Britney Spears' junk because she forgot panties then STOP THE PRESSES!!

If you don't like something than don't associate with it, everybody likes their something and that something is always different to everyone. There's a whole lot that we don't see and know because no one brings attention to it, and honestly sometimes that's a good thing....
