The upcoming movie about PORN - an article and a poll


#1

"Don Jon is a bold contribution to a recent trend in entertainment, giving audiences a real—and grim—snapshot of 21st-century relationships. Call it post–Sex and the City realism. There’s the recent film Lovelace, contrasting the exciting story, as we were told it, of Deepthroat star Linda Lovelace, and the completely un-sexy version as it really was. There’s Girls on HBO, known for showing ugly, lifelike sex scenes. There’s Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, managing to make ultra-risqué performances devoid of any sex appeal. It’s as if sex is no longer sexy in pop culture. What was once a warm and alluring mystery is now a cold, anatomical display. If intimacy is dead, porn may have killed it."

I voted "other" because I don't have a TV.

Like Robert, I don't have a TV, but I would not watch it in any format. Perhaps it will open some people's eyes to the damage and dangers of porn, but if it is filled with "clips of pornography", it sounds like it might also just be more Hollywood titillation - it might have the opposite effect! Better for me to steer clear of all that!

That was a compelling and well written critique. That lady has a career in journalism. The topic is extremely timely and important for today's young people--the ones most affected by internet porn and its wide availability.


#5

I plan on seeing this movie because I want to see its critique of our culture's porn use.

It is not an occasion of sin for me to see some sexual content in movies, and I honestly don't think this movie will show much graphic porn, if at all, since it's a critique against it.


#6

I have no intent to watch it because it would likely present a near occasion of sin to me.
