Pornification Nation (Warning: Explicit Descriptions)
This article beautifully illustrates the effect that pornography has on women from a non-LDS Christian. By definition, pornography objectifies women and increasingly degrades them.
And that is an effect that happens regardless of whether or not a man is married, or a couple consumes pornography together.
How can we not see this?
And how can we not see how this is affecting women within the LDS church? I have experienced many conversations with LDS women about lingerie and how it is our responsibility to turn ourselves into visual objects in order to attract our husbands post-marriage. Is it really true that men are only attracted to visual stimuli?
Is it really true that being a wife means being a sexual slave?
Why is it so wrong for a woman to want to attract her husband on virtue of who she is instead of how "sexy" she is? Or to want to engage in intimacy only when she is feeling intimate?
Is there any way to have a healthy romantic relationship with a man without objectifying oneself?
