Why is there so much porn on the internet? Why is our species so horny?

It's fair to say that no other species on the planet can lay claim to having amassed vast curated libraries specifically for depictions of sex than that of homo sapiens, at least on this planet.
Are there any other animals the we know of that display any similar behaviors? I'm aware there are some other species other than homo sapiens that also have sex for pleasure and not solely to reproduce, but not to this extent right? There is so much porn with so many types of fetishes, kinks, and particular sensibilities. Like even now there are several threads on Neogaf that are that all share the theme in appreciating sexually attractive women by sharing images of sexually attractive women. What is that? What is my brain doing during that experience?

Is being horny a primary motivation for ensuring that you successfully reproduce and pass on your genetic code onto the next generation of humans. Is the fact that sex feels so amazing simply a trick nature plays on us, assuming one would consider it a trick? Does it just come with the terrioroty of being being capable of rationality?

Porn also seems to be ever-present at the dawn of many technological innovations, especially when it comes to new forms of media.
AR & VR seem to be the next frontier for porn in the near future. Like it's almost too bizarre to be real, yet it is.
Seems like a there's greater game being played there that I'm struggling to comprehend the meaning of, assuming there is meaning to be had there.

I'm kind of rambling, but I hope I'm making some sense here lol.

My mind was fucked for a long time by porn. I used to watch every day my entire teenage years. When i had my first time with a girl the old sport wouldnt get up.

I realized it was the porn and completely cut it out. I became 10x hornier and also didnt have any more problems.

Honestly, porn is one of the worst pandemics we face. I used to laugh at people who preached against it, but i understand how right they are. Just look at how many man are single, virgin this year. Its insane.

Yea overindulgence in internet porn certainly has its ramifications, although I'm not certain how much of it is causation or correlation. I like to think of it as being similar to human obesity from overindulging in copious amount of sugar. That's my layman's way of understating it I suppose lol.

I think masturbating from imagination once a week is ok. But man when you watch porn every day you start to build tolerance and move to fucked up shit. This shit is bad

It is an addiction that is why it is similar. It has been shown to be the same pathways and same or worse effects than the most addictive substances.

It is a bitch to quit.
Religon will tell you its because God is testing you
Evolution tells us that its because its the best way to convince you to pass your genes
It is a lot of things. It is definitely a mind body and soul thing.

No doubt, sex with a hooker makes you feel filthy compared to sex with a GF/wife

It's quantity over quality with internet porn. Back in the day when porn was on VHS, it was much higher quality and as such, you needed much less of it. I have to sift through hundreds of videos to get some so so shit. It really is sad and I am better off using my imagination.
 
Most of what you do is in some way serving systems that exist to promote the biological imperative: to maximize offspring, in numbers and/or quality.

Some chemicals or activities or types of information just 'hack' these systems to curve the reward systems in your (really: their) 'favor'. It's basically what creates an addiction.

Sugar, alcohol, gaming, porn, lottery, it's all the same shit really. I bet this is sort of where 'cardinal sins' derive from.

The theory that there is so much porn because sex helps us reproduce doesn't entirely hold, because porn doesn't really help anybody reproduce. In fact it might have the opposite effect. Declining birth rates may be related.

Men actively seek sex. Porn is easy. Relationship is work. Porn wins. Basic arithmetic, or electrical engineering following the path of least resistance.

You kids have it fucking easy, back in my day (Zzzz) we had to hide a big bunch of magazines and equakkt huge VHS tapes around the bedroom ffs, that shit ain't easy... Hell I came home from school one day, noticed my dad stifling giggles and my ma furious... Figured they'd had some sort of argument and proceeded upto my room where upon I discovered my secret dirty mag stash arrayed all over my fucking bed covers up.... Damn that was an awkward conversation, so don't talk to me about too much porn... There can never be too much porn!

Think about why you exist in the first place. It's actually quite astonishing cause two people had to do it. But also before that two more people and so on and so on with 100% winner rate. This had to happen thousands upon thousands of times and even with those odds you're here.

So this basically means every human that exists prior to certain technological advancements is a result of successful sex. Human evolution has engrained this as a necessity. Porn however has shortcircuited all the mechanisms that would drive individuals from persuing the real thing.

Now what's wrong with porn? Porn's a good guy. Leave the hell porn alone.

I mean of course you can overdo it and fuck up your brain, but you can do that with pretty much everything.

Here's a Gif that's kind of random but still funny. Just look that cute little guy taking a shower.

Your only reason for existence as far as biology is concerned is to reproduce. Not being horny all the time is a thin layer of conditioning forced upon some of us by the society we were raised in.

As far as why there's so much porn on the Internet, where else would it be instead?

Not really because all you have to do is stop watching porn once you realize that you’re completely relied on it for stimulus.

I used to have a problem getting hard when using protection because my mind fucked with me due to overwanking it, and using porn daily as wanking stimulus. So I slowed my role and I stopped having that problem.

I feel like once you realize the negative effects of over stimulating yourself its easy to stop, unlike being addicted to meth or sugar and processed foods.
