Men, Internet Porn and Video Games  by YakekponoAbasi Adams

You probably know this guy. He spends hours playing video games and watching pornography. Are you his lover? Forget sex, no dosage you administer is ever enough. Studies show that porn and gaming can become compulsive and addicting. In their book, The Demise of Guys: Why Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It, psychologists Philip Zimbardo and Nikita Duncan say we may lose an entire generation of men to pornography and video-gaming addictions. Lose an entire generation of men? Ladies, who will save us from men scarcity?  “Pornography promises orgasm without intimacy. Video warfare promises adrenaline without danger.” Chai, men; y’all complain of fake boobs, yet love fake love? Somebody hold me, please.

Honesty ,I could care less about a man leaving behind a lively, throbbing, warm, tight and wet something for a fake, lifeless  something. I’m not even interested in how many times he sticks his something into the fake something, but it becomes a matter of concern when you leave your partner unsatisfied. Most times, the man even puts the woman aside and goes after pornography idols. When playing video games, we are left unattended to, poor us! It seems both porn and video games are meant to simulate something – something for which men long for; dear men, kindly let us know, because the arousal that makes these so attractive is ultimate to the core.

According to researchers, these addictions foster the seemingly opposite vices of passivity and hyper-aggression. The porn addict becomes a lecherous loser, with one-flesh union supplanted by masturbatory isolation. The video-game addict becomes a pugilistic coward, with other-protecting courage supplanted by aggression with no chance of losing one’s life. In both cases, one seeks the sensation of being a real lover or a real fighter, but by venting one’s reproductive or adrenal glands over pixilated images, not flesh and blood for which one is responsible.

“A man who learns to be a lover through porn will simultaneously love everyone and no one.”

Zimbardo and Duncan are right: this is a generation mired in fake love and fake war, and that is dangerous. A man who learns to be a lover through porn will simultaneously love everyone and no one. A man obsessed with violent gaming can learn to fight everyone and no one. The answer to both addictions is for our men to stick to making love and war… for real.
