  • The young women addicted to porn

    first_imgDaily Mail 9 June 2017Family First Comment: Disturbing research…“Professor Dines, author of Pornland, says: ‘If girls watch it from a young age, their whole concept of what constitutes a normal sexual relationship shifts. It grooms girls into accepting male sexual mistreatment as normal. “The result is that women don’t become more sexual or liberated. They get more open to porn sex in which they don’t get any pleasure in return. It becomes all about pleasing the man. For girls and young women, this can create an emotional hangover. There are fewer relationships, and more “hook-up sex” leaving them more prone to anxiety and depression.’ “ it seems women experience the same pattern of exposure and addiction to hard-core images as men, according to Gary Wilson, author of Your Brain On Porn. ‘The key thing is that both male and female reward systems can be activated by porn.‘Since sexual arousal releases the highest levels of (feel-good chemicals) dopamine and opioids — the potential for sexual conditioning, or even porn addiction, is possible for both sexes.’ And it’s increasingly being recognised that women may have a higher risk than men of addiction.This is because, as women who have shared their experiences with Wilson have pointed out, they don’t need as long a recovery period after climaxing as men. As a result, women have reported going on ‘porn binges’.But while some therapists hear young women say the violence of porn makes them too afraid to have sex, others like Emma found the constant exposure made her feel highly sexed.‘I had lost my virginity to a boyfriend before university but after I started watching a lot more porn it was all about hook-up sex and one-night stands. Sex became like starring in my own porn film in my mind and I thought I knew exactly what to do.’However, what at first seemed liberating, started to feel soulless, says Emma. ‘The men loved that I was up for all the things they’d seen too. For me, after a year or so, the novelty wore off.‘I realised that here I was, an educated young woman, volunteering to behave for free like porn stars who were paid, or forced, to pretend they were enjoying it.’Indeed, the main difference in the way men and women use porn seems to be how women feel afterwards.According to social worker and church pastor Karin Cooke, who has spoken to young women like Emma for her book, Dangerous Honesty: Stories Of Women Who Have Escaped The Destructive Power Of Pornography, many feel desperate because they think they are struggling with porn alone.Sociology professor Gail Dines, of Boston’s Wheelock College, says that the more porn girls watch, the more coercion becomes a feature of their relationships.

  • Football hits the road for matchup with Cal

    first_imgKatie Chin | Daily TrojanThe No. 5 Trojans are off to a 3-0 start, but so far each game has been contested in the comfort of the Coliseum. Now, the Trojans embark on the road for the first time this season in a matchup against a burgeoning program in Cal. “There is a mentality that I think you have to take [into road games] to not let the outside distractions come in,” head coach Clay Helton said. “Whether that is a different stadium, different locker room, crowd noise, getting on an airplane and traveling —sometimes it’s the first time for some kids getting on a plane.”As they head into Saturday’s matchup, USC has not lost to Cal since 2003 back when Aaron Rodgers was the Bears’ quarterback. The Trojans’ current winning streak is the longest in a century’s worth of games between the two California programs. While USC has dominated Cal for over a decade, the Bears now possess one aspect of the game they have not had in a long time: a solid defense under new head coach and former USC defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox.“He’s an unbelievable, brilliant coach,” Helton said. “And an aggressive coach. We figure that he will continue that aggressiveness versus us. He’s done it in the last three games.” Cal entered this football season with one of the toughest schedules in the nation (the 13th hardest according to Bleacher Report). Combine that with an inexperienced offensive line, the loss of prolific quarterback Davis Webb to the NFL, and the hardships of breaking in a new head coach, and it looked like the Bears would be on a fast track toward the very bottom of the Pac-12. Yet in Week 4, Cal stands at 3-0, with strong victories over North Carolina and Ole Miss primarily because of an aggressive, revamped defense. Finding statistics to illustrate just how bad Cal was on that side of the ball last year is not a difficult task. The Bears’ unit was the worst in the conference, as they gave up the most points (42.6) and second most rushing yards (272) per game. However, this year, Cal seems to be infused with new energy. Against Ole Miss, it forced three interceptions and sacked budding gunslinger Shea Patterson five times. Experienced Cal defenders like senior linebackers Devante Downs (leads the team in tackles, sacks and interceptions) and Raymond Davison III (23 tackles and two sacks) look like they are finally playing in a system that suits their talents and strengths. One storyline to watch will be how much Wilcox is able to decode USC’s offense given his time on the coaching staff just two years ago.“Justin [Wilcox] and I were together for two years,” Helton said. “So obviously he knows my personality and I know his.”Combine Cal’s defensive turnaround with its still-potent offensive attack (they were first in Pac-12 yards per game in 2016) led by running back Patrick Laird, and the Bears could be a dangerous threat to USC, which is still working out kinks on both sides of the ball. After running backs junior Ronald Jones and freshman Stephen Carr looked dominant against Western Michigan and Stanford, they were stifled in last week’s Texas game. The two combined for just 75 yards, as USC struggled to stay ahead of the chains. The Trojans were 6-of-18 on third down and came up short on all three fourth down attempts, partially due to a litany of drops from the receiving corps. Without effective running, the offense turned to redshirt sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold relying on his arm to make plays late in the game. “You’ve got to have that balance between run and pass,” Helton said. “If you commit to stopping the run, you have to be able to throw the ball … and then convert on 3rd-and-short with that run. Thank goodness the passing game came through that last game.”On the defensive side, USC will be challenged due to a slew of recent injuries. Junior outside linebacker Porter Gustin will be out indefinitely with a lingering big toe injury and a torn bicep. He finished with two sacks alone in the first half against Texas. While junior nickelback Ajene Harris returned to practice on Thursday, Helton was unsure if he’d be able to play a full game against Cal. Meanwhile, both senior outside linebacker Uchenna Nwosu and junior defensive tackle Rasheem Green have been dealing with nagging knee injuries.last_img read more

  • Whicker: Maddon looks forward to a stripped-down season

    first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Primarily Maddon has been biking and dieting and thinking. He rode toward the Queen Mary in Long Beach the other day and noticed the sky was unusually and renewably blue. Fewer people going to work, but fewer particulates.“Can we take the best of all this time we’ve missed?” Maddon said. “Can we maybe live a little slower? Maybe that’s not a bad thing. Call it normal-minus.”Show up and play. Nail down the right answers later. For Maddon, it always starts with the right questions. Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter “You’ll have to be nimble and flexible the whole year,” Maddon said. “You’ll be uncomfortable. You’ll have to approach it like summer ball, with all that entails. It will be like working another job and then going to the ballpark. It’ll be like trying to get to the majors.”“We’re playing the Walla Walla Padres in 1982, and we’re the Salem Angels. It’s at an old high school football field. You can hear everything the radio announcer says, right behind home plate. There’s 50 people in the stands. But we’ll be able to process it. It won’t matter if two dogs show up.”And the team that figures it out the quickest will be the most successful. Maddon compares it to a game that starts in the top of the fifth.“Or the Rookie League, with 50 games,” he said. “It will absolutely blow by. You have to be malleable. Don’t complain. Take it for what it is. I think we’ll be so happy to play, it won’t matter.”Maddon managed in Rookie Leagues for three years with the Angels. He ran his first team when he was 27. Today he is the most recognizable manager in baseball. Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield The Cubs had not won a World Series since 1908, when there were 46 United States and the Model T came on line. Maddon not only managed the team that won, he freely discussed the inevitability. Not even a 1-3 deficit to Cleveland in that 2016 Series could dent his serenity.Now Maddon has a YouTube show called Uncorked, and people ask him for life lessons.But his best work was his excavation of the Rays, who had never won more than 70 games. Maddon had them in a World Series in three years.Essentially Maddon is far more Legion Week than Prime Time. The distortions of the season are far preferable than a full year off.“The damage of not playing depends on the reason,” he said. “If it’s because of finances, it’s different. We’ll have to be careful to reconnect with fans. But what would it do to the players? That’s a whole developmental year. Will your talent regress? What does all the off-time do to your brain? And with all that time off, will you have the same hunger? Maybe you’ve enjoyed being home and doing things, with your family, you’ve never done.”Thanks to MLB Network replays, the Cubs have won that same World Series maybe a dozen more times. The 2002 Angels, with Maddon as Mike Scioscia’s bench coach, have repeated as well. Maddon wants these Angels to find that same offensive insistence, to pressure pitchers with baserunners and speed.He also wants to borrow that championship vibe, the one that deserted the Cubs after 2016, mysterious as a virus but more elusive. The Cubs fired Maddon after an interminable three-year championship drought.“It ended rather abruptly in Chicago and I anticipated being there longer,” he said. “But it was the proverbial ‘other direction.’ Some of the things I wanted to do, the front office didn’t agree with anymore.“I remember thinking (third baseman) Kris Bryant had slipped, fielding that last ground ball in Game 7. I thought he’d thrown it high. But (first baseman) Anthony Rizzo caught it. Every time I see it, I think KB is slipping again, and Riz always catches it.”Related Articlescenter_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone When he managed Tampa Bay and Chicago, Joe Maddon held “Legion Weeks.”The Rays and Cubs didn’t have to show up at 2 p.m., didn’t have to study printouts, didn’t have to watch videos and then hold meetings to deconstruct them, didn’t even have to take batting practice. Show up and play. Just like American Legion ball.Now Maddon is the idled manager of the Angels, his old school. He is waiting for an appetizer season of maybe 114 games, maybe fewer, maybe none.Major League Baseball has become a box of Russian nesting dolls, endless compartments of clutter that obscure the pop in the glove. The upcoming 2020 Reader’s Digest season will bring everyone in baseball back home, when you dressed in the car. It might expose those who have forgotten or never knew.last_img read more
