“I think we’ve gotten to the point in our culture where we’re all sex addicts, literally. We have equated happiness in life with as many orgasms as you can possibly pack in, regardless of where it is that you deposit your love interest … It’s just dehumanizing. And I have to honestly say, I think this era of porn is at least partially responsible for it. Where is the anticipation and the personalization? It’s all pre-fab now. You have these images coming at you unannounced and unsolicited. It just gets to be so plastic and phony to me. Maybe men respond to that. But is it really better than an experience with a real life girl that he cares about? It’s an exploitation of the poor male’s libidos. Poor babies, they can’t control themselves … I just imagine them sitting in front of their computers, completely annihilated. They haven’t done anything, they don’t have a job, they barely have ambition anymore. And it makes for laziness and a not very good sex partner. Do they know how to negotiate something that isn’t pre-fab and injected directly into their brain? … I don’t care if I’m becoming one of those old fogies who says, ‘Back in my day we didn’t have to hear about sex all the time.’ Can you imagine? My fantasies were all made up on my own. They’re ruining us with all the explanations and the graphicness. Nobody remembers what it’s like to be left to form your own ideas about what’s erotic and sexual. We’re not allowed any individuality. I thought that was the fun of the whole thing. It’s my fantasy. I didn’t pick it off the Internet somewhere. It’s my fantasy.”

Raquel Welch shares her thoughts on porn in Men’s Health. There’s a lot to respond to here. I agree with what she’s saying about erotic individuality. But that’s where I stop agreeing with her. We’re all sex addicts? Really?

I don’t know a single sex addict. And I know lots of people. And why is she hating so much on men, calling them lazy, unambitious fiends who can’t control themselves? I am not a man, but if I were, I’m sure I would be offended by this statement. I’m offended by it as a woman. Looking at porn (male or female) does NOT make you a sex addict. It does NOT make you lazy or a lousy lover. And I think there are plenty of people who use porn thoughtfully and responsibly and maintain healthy sex lives with real people.

But that’s just what I think. What do you think? [Men’s Health]
