I will let slide your starting to be preachy in your very first post. Beginner's error and what not.malunkyaputta wrote: ↑Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:03 amHello my brother
I personally believe that consuming porn is not in accord with keeping the 3rd precept (avoiding sexual/sensual misconduct) - as it is taking advantage of someone else's pain/misery/suffering (the "actors") for your own pleasure...
I am no saint, though - I used to watch quite a lot
But that is my Khamma...
As of the current day - I am proud to be 4 months absolutely free of porn!
It would be wise for you to see (even just for the sake of it) - what happens if you stop...
Have a great day
I never said anywhere that I watch porn. I said those are the rules I abide by ..
I would never start a car with a baby alone in the back seat does not imply I own a car or have an offspring. Same way.
But I completely argue the premise that a single guy or girl cannot watch legal porn. Porn actresses in legal porn industry (production house very often incorporated as PLC) earn upto $6,000 per shoot with median income of $1,500. That is same as 330-1000 hours of flipping burgers (and earned in 6-7 hours). They certainly are not in pain or suffering.
As long as something is not addictive .. it is not bad (speaking of laity) .. alcohol in moderation, porn in moderation .. even marijuana in moderation. But if someone wants to maintain a no-porn, no-alcohol, no-weed lifestyle .. good for them. But do not say it is bad Kamma if one does indulge ..
And don't jump to conclusions about strangers. It is whole lot of mental fabrications.
