Video games and porn

Interesting interview/study http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02qv3ng

Many of you are parents now, what do you think?

Re: Video games and porn

I didn't watch the video, but typically I find most of those addiction and withdrawal from social arguments to be nonsense. The rare cases where that's true those people already are having issues with those social situations or have predispositions towards addiction of all kinds.

Re: Video games and porn

They talked of people playing video games for 15 hours a day pretty much every day - I agree that is not healthy, people need to exercise.

Not sure about the "Can excessive gaming lead to a 'crisis of masculinity'?" tho

Re: Video games and porn

Guess it depends on what type of game they're playing for 15hours a day. I saw a report about Japanese men playing those girlfriend games and that was all a bit weird. Grown men rushing home to 'date-night' with their 'girlfriends'...

Re: Video games and porn

Absolute nonsense, sensationalist clap trap to sell a book.

15hrs a day, 7 days a week? Extreme rare case, who can play like that? Most likely doing that so avoid something in his life not in school, in work or other thing to fill time. So would it be any better to spend those 15 hrs reading? Jumped up doc would say so, but how is that any less extreme?

Gaming is more social than ever, online chat and communities. It's rare I think for people to shit themselves away avoiding society, the game is a crutch for someone that has done that not the cause. No different that watching TV for 15 hrs, except that gaming is more interactive.

Watch porn alone? Who'd have thought that. No one watches porn for more then 3 minutes, especially not a teenager!
