Marnia Robinson of the Good Men Project recently talked about the fact that porn ain’t the same as it used to be, and what that might mean scientifically for your kid (and you!). Chances are that your generation of porn was far more “out there” than that of your father. Imagine what your kid’s in for.

Or, as Marnia puts it: “Who’s gonna get excited by Pac-Man when he has been playing Grand Theft Auto or Halo 3?

Coincidentally, if anyone has any Halo porn, send it my way. I mean, in the name of science, of course.

Did the porn that you watched in your teen years effect (or affect) your sexual and emotional relationships? Did it make “normal” sex with your significant other boring? Marina says there’s evidence to suggest that all this new-fangled porn people are digging up can create more serious problems like erectile dysfunction and social anxiety.

Marina might err on the side of slightly loony at the end of the article when she suggests that we tell our kids “to experiment with different intervals of say, once or twice a week, or even less…” and “consider teaching your child one of the many ancient techniques for redistributing sexual energy.”

Uhhhhhhhhhh. I’m already imagining what I would have said to my dad if he came at me with that sort of ultra-hyphenated, level-headed, auto-erotic, round-table discussion. Eff that. Our router will be set to block porn sites, and other than that, the natural hunting and gathering of porn will probably yield natural enough results.
