In a final interview hours before his death, serial killer and necrophile Ted Bundy warned that pornography played a significant role in his “distorted” world view. You can watch that video here.
I posted an article recently on the current epidemic of pornography induced sexual dysfunction which is occurring in young men as a result of high speed internet porn.
There are some that believe that Bundy was merely playing his final card, a cop out to James Dobson, the evangelical Christian author and psychologist who had the chance to peer into his mind.
I am not sure what I would have thought before, but now that I have seen the studies on the addictive impact of pornography, and the endless novelty and dopamine it provides, I am certain his claim is true.
Dopamine, especially when it comes to sex and food, is what truly drives the addiction. It’s the “go get it” chemical and your brain produces it whenever there is an opportunity, especially to binge.
But if you keep pumping out dopamine the brain becomes exhausted and the same old candy bars or porn videos no longer excite you. Novelty is the only way to get the same desirable feeling.
Today’s internet porn user has unlimited novelty on tap. Bundy didn’t, so he had to create his own, regardless of what it took.
He discusses escalating tastes, the need for even sicker and diabolical deeds that would drive the demon in him to crack the whip and take control of his mind.
Many of the men on the forum yourbrainrebalanced.com, a site for recovering porn addicts, describe the almost inconceivable fact that their sexual tastes have actually morphed. Despite being heterosexual, some men will watch gay videos, tranny porn, grandma porn, or whatever satiates their need to experience extreme, endless novelty. The typical amateur college romp video just doesn’t get it up anymore.
Bundy claims to have been exposed to a violent sort of porn early in his life. Cross that with the strange familial relationships he had as a youngster and it seems you breed a monster searching for the next sexually exciting experience – which in his case required escalating levels of abhorrent violence.
An older cousin of Richard Ramierz introduced a 12-year-old Ramierz to pictures of him raping Vietnamese women while at war, even posing with their severed heads. Imagine this being your introduction to the world of sex…I mean really stop and think about it.
Ariel Castro attributed his behavior to pornography addiction after keeping three kidnapped girls in his basement for 10 years. Like Bundy, he described himself as “otherwise normal.”
Only now is the true impact of high speed porn showing it’s ugly head – “The Great Porn Experiment” as Gary Wilson dubs it.
The question that immediately comes to mind – what the hell could possibly be occurring in the minds of today’s young men/women? What are we breeding? Any 8-year-old with an iPad can watch 4 trannies blow a horse if they want. Their understanding of the world, and sexuality, must certainly be taking a serious blow (pun intended, my friends).
My younger cousin described how his friends watch porn in the back of math class, and the teacher is oblivious. Can you imagine what the next 10 years could hold for the saturation of porn in today’s culture? Are men going to require endless stimulation and instant gratification when it comes to sex? Will there be strange patterns of addiction? Are women going to suffer greatly because of this?
Sex could very well be the most powerful of all the innate “needs” that a human could experience. The desire to get after it comes from ancient wiring…some call it “lizard brain.” It is far too early to know what the impact will be, as high speed internet hasn’t been widely available for long enough.
The future is unknown, but there is one thing I know for certain.
Porn is never going away.
