Amidst the loud angry cries against pornography, a few serious scientific studies have been performed on the subject. It seems that men and women who view pornography, have improved sex lives, better sexual knowledge, and an overall better quality of life. Surprisingly, one study found that the more that pornography is viewed, the greater the improvements. In an extensive study performed in Australia, the majority of married respondents stated that they believed that pornography has had a positive effect on their marriage. While clearly not always linked to pornography, studies have found that men who had fewer orgasms were twice as likely to die of any cause as those having two or more orgasms a week.
Interesting Fact: Pornography (and the anti-pornography movement) as it is understood today is a concept of the Victorian era (19th century) which was extremely moralistic. Sexual imagery was not taboo before that time.
“Ang buhay ay isang continuous learning, at ang pag-aaral at pagkakatuto ay hindi nakukulong sa apat na sulok ng kwarto, sa mga pangarap na hindi naabot, bagkus driving force lamang ang kailangan para maabot mo yung mga parangarap mo, aim high, soar high ika nga nila. Iwanan ko sa iyo yung verse sa bible na paalala na dapat daw wag tayong lumakad na aimless, dapat palaging may target, di man bubulls eye ngayon, sa susunod pwede ulit sumubok.”—Themizpah (via abakadamachine)
INDAY: I have computed the chair’s value less cost to sell, and the value in use using projections for 5 years and a pretax discount rate. Accordingly, the value in use is lower, so I decided to sell the chair. This is in accordance with PAS18 on revenue, PAS16 on PPE, and PAS36 on Impairment of Assets.
