On this topic of porn... any opinions about CGI (Computer generated/animated images), they are not real people.

An image is an image. If your spouse can never be other people, then they can even more so never be a cgi I age that is always enhanced. It’s a just foolish justification.

Thanks for your post. I was not trying to justify anything, but just as I said. Thinking out loud.

I just wonder, why do we see mainly images as "porn", but we seem to be soft or not concerned about audio or text; which in the end may have the same final effect in our minds brains.

 

As -Scott mentioned in a previous reply: "Now, there are well-meaning posters writing things that aren’t intentionally titillating but may cause some to be aroused.".

I wonder, how many here in TMB have felt aroused while reading some descriptive/detailed posts of sexual acts here in the forum.

Can some posts here fall under the category of "porn", because of the images they create in our minds?

There is a comment in this thread that is very interesting: "that’s audio porn maybe, but I think it isn’t technically sin. Visual images are. "

I think that images, audio and even text: in the end will end up as electrical signals in our brain.  Images, audio or text will be just the mean, but the result in the brain I think will be the same.

Many times I wonder if the "detailed accounts/stories" shared in this forums, and the images they create in the "mind of the reader" can be already considered sin.

In the end: the non-avoidable effect is the mind of the reader (while reading detailed stories posted here) is, images of the "writer and his/her" spouse having sex. Is that a sin, to have in your mind images of other "real" people having sex?

I am not judging anyone, just thinking out loud.

That was me about audio porn.
I was trying to think of a song afoxandabunny could listen to while M'ing that would help her feel sensual. And I thought of the Donna Summer song.
And the as I wrote it, I wondered aloud if that could be a bit too far, kinda tongue in cheek, kind of an honest question.
I mean Barry White is sensual, but not audio porn.
That Donna Summer song.....well....I think that's a real question.
I can make a solid case for and against.

Sorry for derailing the thread....

Totally agree about certain types of text and songs counting as porn. Same is true of spoken word.

For instance, there is another "Christian" online source that I would certainly count as textual porn. There are many that don't claim to be Christian as well obviously.

Figuring out where the line is drawn is difficult. Others have recommended, and after some thought I agree, that the intent of the writer a key component. If the writer is intentionally being titillating and trying to arouse readers they are sinning.

Now, there are well-meaning posters writing things that aren't intentionally titillating but may cause some to be aroused. In that case, I think the onus is on the susceptible reader to avoid lusting/sinning on text that most do not find arousing.

Does that make sense?

Php 4:8-9. “Finally, brothers (and sisters), whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”

Where does porn fit in any of these peace bringing things?

Avoid porn at all costs.  You will be blessed for your celibacy when you find the right person down the road.
