In the lives of many young men, porn has taken over the role that parents, schools, and the innocent, halting experience of young romance were supposed to fill: real-life sex prep.Pornography’s vision of sex has usurped real world sex in young people's consciousness and imagination."Now women are quite financially independent, so we partner up with someone because—radical thought—we like him.” In this new arena of increased gender equality, it seems that many women—like many men—find the company of a young and beautiful partner appealing and rewarding.
Social change invariably begets a change in consciousness.
The classic wife narrative (find a husband, have children, raise them, then go knit in the rocking chair) is all but extinct.
Her chief insight—and complaint—is that young men nowadays tend to learn about sex from pornography on the Internet.
Consequently, their understanding of what real sex looks like in the real world aspires to zero.
In roughly a fifth of American families, women are the main breadwinners.
When women are more independent financially, they have more power, more choices, and more influence.
Her criticism is directed instead mainly at the puritanical American society, which refuses to educate and teach young people about real sex.
Due to the sexual education vacuum, pornography has de facto turned from entertainment to education.
In real life sex you sometimes need to go quietly, so as not to wake up the children.
