Why Porn Is Illegal In Kenya?

The term pornography first surfaced during the ’60s. Since then it has raised as a form of entertainment business which has given rise to many pornographic stars that we see today on the screen. The porn industry is a billion dollar industry which is spread worldwide. Despite this pornography is not perceived to be good. Rather it is often taken as a taboo I many of the communities around the world. It is opposed by some countries so much that they have even tagged it as illegal within their boundaries.

Porn is not exactly bad as long as it is not forced on anyone. For example, child pornography is where real children are forced to act in ways they shouldn’t. In other words, they are made to do stuff against their will. This kind of activities should be completely banned. But when it comes to individuals who are performing sexual acts on their own will, it is actually fine. Almost all of these individuals are grown up adults who are very well aware of what they are getting into. Many of you reading this may not agree with this but that, however, doesn’t change the fact.

Porn is consumed by millions of people all around the world and this includes both male and female population. It is believed that porn has a bad effect on our mental health. This is true only when you are addicted to it. Watching porn just for the sole purpose of masturbating or deriving pleasure is actually quite normal. But even this is opposed by many of the communities. Porn is often considered to be a taboo as it is said to have a bad impact on your mind. Other than that, it is also considered to be bad as it shows certain stuff which is unrealistic. What people fail to realize is that it also has certain benefits to offer. Porn can actually teach us a lot of things and give us knowledge about sex that no one will otherwise discuss with us. Despite all this porn is still illegal in many countries to such a point that they have even banned the access to porn sites.

How can watching pornography be beneficial to us?

Most of us watch porn just to derive pleasure from it. When it comes to watching porn, there are two types of people. One who doesn’t have any objection and the second category who thinks porn is a bad influence on society. Only a few people will agree that porn can be beneficial to society in a number of ways. If you too believe that porn is a taboo for the society then you should once go through the pointers given below.

1.It is healthy

Despite the many studies that show porn is bad for your brain and relationships, there are studies that show it doesn’t cause any irrevocable harm to your brain or relationships. Instead, it can be good for you in certain ways. According to some studies, it has been found that porn does not have a bad influence on your health and brain. In fact, the researchers found that porn leads to increased sexual satisfaction for the viewers. Watching porn will not lead you to go out on the streets with a needle in your hand. It will probably just make your arm a little buffer.

2.Relieves stress

There is no doubt that porn can be a great stress reliever. There are many people who watch porn to get their mind off things that are stressful to them. This is applicable to both men and women. When you are under stress, your brain produces cortisol which blocks your ability to think and solve problems. According to research, the pictures of naked women can cut your cortisol level into half and thus, you will be able to think better. Don’t think that this happens only to men. Even women experience a decrease in their cortisol levels after watching porn.

3.Can benefit your relationship

Watching porn along with your partner can help you benefit your relationship. That’s because it opens your mind to new sexual possibilities. Both you and your partner can learn new things that you can try in your bedroom. Having a good sex life is always good for your relationship and to make your sex life spicier, you got to watch porn. Well, it’s that simple.

4.Helps to explore your sexuality

Everything has a starting. Most young men and women start their sex life by watching porn. For an amateur or first-timer, pornography can be really helpful as it helps them to learn new things and explore your sexuality. This, as a result, can also help you to get better in bed and thus, you will be able to please your partner better.

5.Can help reduce your aggressive tendencies

Anger causes a lot of things that we wouldn’t do otherwise. It may sound crazy to you but by watching porn you can actually control your anger. Since watching porn can reduce your stress, it has a correlation to reduce your aggressive tendencies as well. You must have heard about myths that watching porn leads people to commit violent crimes. Well, that is not the case. A moderate addiction to porn can actually help you to control your anger. Not just that, but it can also stop you from committing a sexual crime.
Thus, you can see the number of benefits of watching pornography can offer you. Sadly, not many people understand this. Our society may have developed and we have come a long way but still, our mindset is stuck somewhere in the ’60s. Remember, excess of nothing is good, not even porn. But in moderate amounts, it can actually help you improve your actions and life. Therefore, we shouldn’t be judging people by their choices.

What are the effects of watching porn?

Like every other thing in the world, even porn has both pros and cons. Now that you already know the benefits of watching porn, it’s time to understand the way it affects us.

1.Porn can be addictive

This is perhaps the biggest problem with watching porn. Porn is very much addictive, what may start off as entertainment can turn into an addiction. When porn turns into addiction it becomes a problem. Inside the human brain, you have something called reward therapy which can be easily hijacked. The purpose of reward therapy is to reward you when you do something that feels good. This is when your brain releases the pleasurable chemicals. These chemicals pulse through your brain and can lead you back to the behavior that releases the chemicals.

2.It can kill love

Most of the porn that you see is not real. Some of the acts that they show are humanely not possible and it is completely fake. For people who think of trying such acts in real life can end up messing up their love life. When you are expecting something from your partner and they are not able to provide that things obviously get better. This is particularly very true in the case of sex.

3.Porn is linked to sex trafficking and prostitution

It is often found that men are more likely to go to brothels and prostitutes after watching porn. That’s because they want to try the things they saw in porn. Other than that porn is also related to global sex trafficking. Many of the porn is made of victims of the sex trafficking industry. Women are forced, beaten and drugged into doing porn.

Is porn illegal?

The porn industry is a billion dollar industry but it is still illegal in many of the countries. But then we also have countries like the US where pornography is accepted in the open. Countries like Kenya have strict laws against pornography. Well, there are many reasons for it. Some of the main reasons include.

1.Kenya is very serious when it comes to pornography. They have strict laws against child pornography. Anyone sharing objectionable pictures and videos of children on the net will be subjected to serious consequences. This is done in order to stop the spreading of child pornography in the country.

2.Porn is banned in Kenya so that it can put a stop to sex trafficking. According to the government, Kenya has no place for sex trafficking within their country. Even the censor boards are imposed with strict laws as they are not allowed to share dirty posters or videos. Also, they need to have a license as well.

To conclude, it can be stated that porn is not actually bad, till the time you don’t misuse it. But sadly, there are people who don’t seem to understand the simple fact. It is because of this very reason that it is considered to be illegal in many of the countries. The society may have developed technologically but it is still way behind when it comes to accepting pornography.
