Pornhub Reveals How Much Porn We Watched In 2016 — Here’s Why It’s An Issue

Published

on

What we expose our minds to can literally alter our reality. Every movie you watch, every book you read, and every song you listen to shapes your perception, and thus the way you perceive your reality. So, if you’re watching porn, how do you think that affects your psyche and your overall human experience?

What does that do to your expectations surrounding your sex life and how does it shape sex culture as a whole? To start, let’s take a look at Pornhub’s 4th annual Year in Review report, which outlines just how much porn we watch.

The ‘Dirty Details’ of Pornhub’s 2016 Year in Review Report

For the fourth year in a row, online porn giant Pornhub has dug deep and consolidated their data to help us understand how much porn the world watches. On Pornhub alone, online users collectively watched 91,980,225,000 pornographic videos. That translates to 64 million videos watched per day or 44,000 videos watched per minute. If you were to stretch the number of hours it would take to watch all of that across a timeline, it’s 5,246 centuries worth of hours.

Not surprisingly, the U.S. had the highest number of views per capita and the highest level of traffic. This could be seen across some of the topics that trended during 2016 on Pornhub. For example, following election day in the U.S., Pornhub experienced an 874% increase in the number of searches for President Donald Trump. His daughter, Tiffany, experienced an even greater leap, as her number of searches was up by 2,548%, and future First Lady Melania jumped up by 1,538%.

The report goes on to list the most popular search items, categories, times to watch videos, porn stars, and more. You can check out the full report here.

Clearly, the amount of porn we watch is increasing and it has been for quite a few years. I say ‘we’ because even if you don’t watch porn or aren’t a frequent user, it’s still affecting the collective consciousness. This becomes clearer when you actually consider our current sex culture and the way society views and experiences sex.

So, What Does Watching Porn Do To Us?

If you’ve never considered what the issue is with watching porn, that’s completely understandable. We live in a society where sex is devalued, and at the same time it’s encouraged and normalized. It’s commonplace to have sex with multiple partners and to masturbate while watching porn. We live in a system that further perpetuates this type of sex culture, which ultimately further disconnects us from one another.

To understand this concept, check out the following excerpt from an article written by Brett and Kate McKay called “The Problem With Porn“:

Pornography is such a polarizing issue, that it’s easy for people to take extreme sides when approaching it. Oftentimes, religious people, while very sincere in their beliefs, brand porn as vile filth that turns good men into sexual perverts and unclean lepers. I’ve sat through plenty of church sermons where porn is approached this way. However, such a approach hardly helps men rationally think through the issue. Rather it transforms porn into an even more desirable forbidden fruit, pushes porn consumption into a secretive underground fetish,  and prevents men from being honest in their need for help.

The other extreme sees porn as just a healthy expression of sexuality. Pornography is heartily encouraged in order to help people discover what pleases them sexually, no matter how graphic or violent the material is. The people in this camp will argue that as long as consenting adults are involved and no one gets hurt, then anything goes. However, this approach fails to recognize the detrimental effects porn can have on an individual, on women, and on society.

We live in a dualistic world, so it makes sense for many people to have polarizing beliefs that are considered ‘opposite sides of the spectrum.’ We went from one end, suppressing our natural instincts and sexual nature, to the complete opposite, running wild and sleeping with many partners. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this; in fact, this makes perfect sense. Living in a dualistic world, it’s completely understandable that we’d create these polar opposites when it comes to our views on sex.

When religion was running the show and governed what was considered socially acceptable, sex was frowned upon, especially if you were unmarried. However, when these beliefs were overthrown (at least somewhat) and people started to exercise greater freedom, society started to shift their comfort levels with sexuality.

We began to rebel and to explore our sexual desires in ways we hadn’t before, especially around the time of the Women’s Rights movement. Then, corporations decided to capitalize on this opportunity, so porn was born and we started to see more sex in films, in music, and in the media. TV shows and movies tell us that it’s completely normal for us to have sex with multiple partners with “no attachments,” and we’ve clearly listened.

Since porn is a form of entertainment, it needs to be enjoyable to watch. As a result, the porn stars and the sexual acts filmed are far from what’s considered normal. However, since so many people’s first sexual experiences happen directly through porn, it creates unrealistic (and often unhealthy) expectations for them. This can continue to affect people throughout their lives, even while they’re having sex in real life. Many people who watch porn regularly state that it completely alters their sexual experiences, as they have difficulty staying present in the moment while having sex.

There’s no shortage of issues within the porn industry: child pornography, violence, associating pain with pleasure, rape, pedophilia, disconnection, objectification, and more. Even the U.S. government has recognized the addictive nature of porn and the issues associated with watching it. The state of Utah tried to issue a bill in response to these concerns, stating pornography is “a public health hazard leading to a broad spectrum of individual and public health impacts and societal harms.” You can read more about that in our CE article here.

Porn is clearly addictive, but why? What is it in our lives that so many people feel they’re lacking and need to use pornography to replace? I would argue that it’s connection and love, and that people falsely associate sex with these things. Yes, sex can be a way to connect with people, but it’s not the only way. Sex also isn’t the only way for people to find love; looking for love through a romantic relationship isn’t always the answer. You can find that exact same love within yourself, which perhaps many porn addicts are missing.

When it all comes down to it, sex is an activity we have the free will to partake in for a reason. Yes, that reason may be because it allows us to reproduce, but I also believe there is a much deeper meaning behind sex, one that many of us have forgotten because the porn industry and sex culture are blinding us from  it. Sex can be an extremely spiritual and fun experience if you allow it to be, and I believe it’s intended to be through tantric sex.

Energetic Implications of Having Sex 

Have you ever discussed a certain subject with a friend and felt badly for them? Perhaps you got angry for them, felt sadness because of their situation, or simply felt empathetic? From an energetic perspective, this is because you’re vulnerable to their frequencies. It is said that you should choose your five closest friends wisely for this reason, because their vibration will affect your own. I would argue that you should exercise caution when choosing your sexual partners for this exact same reason.

If you’re having sex with someone, an act that physically connects you in the deepest way possible, it makes sense that their energy would be imposed on you. Furthermore, it is said that when you have sex with someone, their aura leaves an imprint on you that is difficult to energetically cleanse yourself from. So, if you’re sleeping with someone who has slept with ten people in the past, and that individual hasn’t cleansed themselves from their former partners’ energies before, you may be susceptible to eleven people’s energies.

energy

Despite this, I still believe it is healthy to have sex, especially if you’re cleansing yourself energetically (check out this CE article here). I also think sex can be used as a tool to deepen our inherent love and connection to one another through practicing tantra. Tantra is the Sanskrit word for ‘woven together,’ and through the study and practice of it you can come to understand yourself better on a spiritual level. After all, by exploring yourself sexually, whether that’s on your own or with a partner, you’re ultimately just learning more about yourself, and thus more about Source.

Porn teaches us that sex is only physical, but in reality it’s so much more than that. Sex isn’t about what it looks like, it’s about the feeling you get, the energetic shift you experience, and the intimacy you share with your partner. We are so much more than our physical bodies, and believe it or not, sex can actually teach us that! So, I challenge you to explore your sexuality without the use of porn. Who knows, maybe in searching for a more connective sex life, you’ll end up finding yourself along the way.

Long Time NSA Intelligence Official Shares His Thoughts About Supposed “Russian Hacking”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A longtime NSA official William Binney shares why the Russian hacking story is full of flaws and lies, and why the NSA is really 'spying' on people.

  • Reflect On:

    Why does the United States have a long history of blaming another country with completely false allegations? In this case, it's because the establishment really wanted Hillary Clinton to win so they could continue with their agenda.

Hearing about all of this Russian hacking, Trump, and politics, in general, these days seems to be like eating the same type of food every night, you literally get sick of it. This begs the question, should we even pay attention to it? Of course, we should, the political realm and the corporate stranglehold over it (and above that sit the financial elite) are taking advantage of us because WE are the ones that allow this entire charade to continue. It would be the same thing as not paying attention to the fact that pharmaceutical drugs are killing many people. There are many examples. To simply ignore it allows those ridden with the disease of power to keep taking advantage of us.  One thing is for sure, our so-called “leaders” don’t seem to care. Sure, they gather at summits every year to supposedly discuss solutions to the global problems, but solutions have been in existence for decades and nothing seems to happen. This alone should make every single person question what’s really going on behind the scenes because nothing seems to really make any sense at all.

It also forces one to come up and create solutions within their own life, and start creating change that way, by doing their best to be it.

This article sheds light on one common problem that’s existed for decades, and that’s the constant blaming of Russia, as well as other governments and global politicians for problems that don’t even exist. Perhaps the best example would be 9/11 and Iraq, or the recent supposed chemical gas attacks in Syria, and much more. Each is an example for humanity to wake up and see what’s really going on, because it keeps on happening over and over again, and to stop it, awareness is key, human consciousness is key…

It’s always critical to look at the information that’s not coming from mainstream media sources, and if you do, you will find multiple ex-intelligence agents and employees saying the exact opposite of what’s presented within the mainstream media. You can also find hard evidence to corroborate these statements, unlike the ones that come from mainstream media. These are brave people, who chose to share truth rather than sticking to their national security oaths, simply because “national security” has now become a term used to justify completely immoral action, like mass surveillance, for example.

JFK warned us about national security becoming a term that is used to keep everything a secret, hidden away from public knowledge.

One great example of one of these brave people would be would be William Binney, a high ranking NSA intelligence official who worked decades for the agency that blew the whistle on the NSA surveillance programs. He was the subject of an FBI investigations raid, which included a raid on his home in 2007. He was the one before Snowden and revealed that since 9/11 the agency has intercepted trillions of communications. He made headlines when he resigned in 2001 after 9/11, having worked more than thirty years for the agency. He was a leading code-breaker against the Soviet Union during the Cold War and was repelled by the United States’ massive surveillance programs.

He is still outspoken today, stating that the ultimate goal of the NSA is “total population control.” And again, it’s not just him, it’s many others. According to Binney, all of the allegations against Russia have been completely false.

This isn’t surprising, Hillary Clinton was supposed to win, her speeches were written by Goldman Sachs (Wikileaks), all she represented was a mouth-piece for the corporations, and the entire military-industrial complex, a mouthpiece for the terror war industry, and much much more. The level of corruption with Hillary and within the DNC was off the charts.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders were the only two who showed authenticity not connected to power, regardless of how that authenticity was perceived by others….

Binney recently did an interview with Dennis J. Bernstein, an American producer and co-host of the radio news program, Flashpoints Radio on Pacifica Radio, where he explains why Russian Hacking the election was impossible.

Bernstein: So if, in fact, the Russians were tapping into DNC headquarters, the NSA would absolutely know about it.

Binney: Yes, and they would also have trace routes on where they went specifically, in Russia or anywhere else.  If you remember, about three or four years ago, the Chinese hacked into somewhere in the United States and our government came out and confirmed that it was the Chinese who did it, and it came from a specific military facility in Shanghai.  The NSA had these trace route programs embedded by the hundreds across the US and all around the world.

The other data that came out from Guccifer 2.0, a download from the DNC, has been a charade.  It was a download and not a transfer across the Web.  The Web won’t manage such a high speed.  It could not have gotten across the Atlantic at that high speed.  You would have to have high capacity lines dedicated to that in order to do it. They have been playing games with us.  There is no factual evidence to back up any charge of hacking here.

You can read that entire interview here. you can watch another interview with him discussing the issue below.

In the interview, he goes on to state:

Bernstein:  It was initially put out that seventeen intelligence agencies found compelling evidence that the Russians hacked into our election.  You’re saying it was actually selected individuals from just three agencies.  Is there anything to the revelations that FBI agents talked about taking action to prevent Trump from becoming president?

Binney: It certainly does seem that it is leaning that way, that is was all a frame-up.  It is a sad time in our history, to see the government working against itself internally.

Bernstein:  I take it you are not a big supporter of Trump.

Binney:  Well, I voted for him.  I couldn’t vote for a warmonger like Clinton.  She wanted to see our planes shooting down Russian planes in Syria.  She advocated for destabilizing Libya, for getting rid of Assad in Syria, she was a strong backer of the war in Iraq.

Acknowledging that Russia had nothing to do with the election results goes to show the level of corruption within politics. It’s a game where allegations are thrown around within its own country, as well as globally. There are massive divides within the American government itself, a Deep State.

Here’s a little clip of him on RT at the end of last year. The interview above is more recent, and the feelings haven’t seemed to change.

William Binney is a hero. Just like Edward Snowden, Sibel Edmonds, and many many more.

The quote below is from Kevin Shipp, taken from the interview written about and soured in this article, another veteran of the CIA. It expresses why the Deep State wants Donald Trump out, because he’s not a puppet for them, like Hillary was, it explains why they instantly made up the Russia hacking allegations…

There is essentially a civil war involving parts of senior management and upper parts of our government that is occurring in the United States. It’s between the ‘Dark’ side and the ‘Constitutional’ side. There has never been anything like this in history. It is extremely serious, and this is an extremely serious hour for our government and especially for our constitutional freedoms. . . . This essentially is a global criminal cabal that has penetrated into our government and now has senior-level officials colluding and, I would argue, conspiring to unseat this president.

The Solution To Global Food Shortages, Contamination & Inflated Prices?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Modern agriculture is not sustainable for our planet and is damaging our soil, depleting it of all its nutrients. We are needing more and more pesticides and chemical fertilizers to grow our crops. Aquponics is one much more sustainable option.

  • Reflect On:

    If we have the means to grow an abundance of food for everyone that wouldn't cause damage to the soil, or feed us unnecessary poisons, why wouldn't we?

There is no doubt about it, a growing problem today with food shortages and inflated food prices across the globe exists. For a long time, the answer to these issues has been the implementation of genetically engineered crops, according to many mainstream scientists at least. Unfortunately, this method of farming is contaminating our soil and depleting it of its nutrients, which are essential for growing vitamin-rich foods. The vast amount of chemical pesticides that are sprayed on genetically modified crops make it next to impossible to grow anything else and especially without the use of these pesticides. Considering there are much more natural, and efficient ways of growing ample amounts of the food we need to survive, one might wonder why we haven’t begun to implement these technologies on a mass scale.

Vortex Aquaponics

One of these solutions is a method of growing produce, known as aquaponics. One company, in particular, Vortex Aquaponics has made it their goal to grow an abundance of organic food and even produce clean fish, all without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Their objectives are:

  • Efficiently grow plants with a systematic process that is conducive to the local area
  • Produce non-contaminated mineral dense fruits, vegetables, and fish, with full lab tests
  • Create a streamlined process to sell and distribute small to large aquaponics systems
  • Offer complete aquaponics education programs to offer to the public and new customers

Is It Time For A Complete Overhaul On Our Current Food Production System?

Perhaps surprisingly a recent Consumer Reports survey showed that 84% of American consumers purchase organic food. This is great news, and it could signify the beginning of the end of genetically modified foods if organic food producers are able to keep up with the demand. Supply shortages are one of the greatest threats facing the industry today. Sales of organic food make up four percent of the total food sales while the amount of acreage devoted to organic agriculture is less than one percent of total U.S. land used for agriculture.

What Is Aquaponics?

According to Vortex Aquaponics,

“Aquaponics” the combination of Aquaculture (culture of fish) and Hydroponics (culture of plants without soil) integrated into a single agricultural system that works in many climates yielding an abundant amount of organic vegetation and edible fish.

Why choose Vortex Aquaponics?

  • Up to 10 times more production in the same amount of space horizontally without the plants being overcrowded.
  • Requires approximately 1/4 the labor of almost all other food production methods.
  • Virtual elimination of weeds, pests, diseases, viruses and pathogens for both aquatic and plant life alike
  • 100% free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other toxic chemicals
  • No watering plants! The aquaponics system uses 98% less water than normal.   Because the water is constantly re-circulating, and you do not lose any to soil absorption. The roots of your plants are constantly submerged in nutrient-rich water and you never have to worry about watering your plants again.
  • Multiple Sources of Income: Selling the plants, finished products, raising fish, selling seeds, etc..
  • Plants grow twice as fast.  The plants are getting nutrients 24/7 and don’t have the stress of traditional soil grown plants.
  • Uses up to 70% less Energy than traditional growing methods.
  • Many useful by-products are created that can be used to produce other crops, fruit trees, soils, biofuels and renewable energy

How Does This Actually Work?

All of the materials that are used by aquaponics systems align with their eco-friendly vision and include

1.  Vertical growing columns (Aquapot Vertical Towers): These are used for green leafy veggies and herbs
2.  Media Beds: For vines and larger crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, fruiting plants, and root vegetables
3.  Fish Tanks: For raising the fish of your choice
4.  Solids Collector: For keeping the system clean
5.  De-Gasser: For putting oxygen back into the system
6.  Water Pump: For pumping the water up to the top of the column and recirculating the water
7.  Air Pump: Provides oxygen for the plants and the fish
8. Dome Greenhouse or hoop house

Vortex aquapnics also has an education system where they teach school children how the system works and why it is important for our future.

Is This Sounding Too Good To Be True?

These systems are already underway and being used to grow food. There are already 3 successful systems set up in Puerto Rico, China and Canada. The goal is to make these systems, widespread across the globe and supplement the demands for organic produce, while most likely over time wiping out other forms of agriculture that are not sustainable for our planet.

This goes that we do have the technology that is needed to ensure that no one goes hungry and we don’t have to be using the outdated and often destructive methods of industrial agriculture anymore. Times are changing and this system has the potential to transform the agricultural industry in a big way.

Much Love

Egypt To Open A Giant Black Mystery Sarcophagus Despite Warnings

Published

on

Not long ago, Egyptian Archaeologists discovered a huge 2,000-year-old sealed coffin, and as you’d imagine, they want to open it to see who or what is inside.

The sarcophagus was discovered in a tomb deep under the Egyptian city of Alexandria earlier this month (July 2018). It’s believed to be the largest sarcophagus ever discovered in Alexandria. It’s 9ft long, 5ft wide and 6ft deep, according to Mostafa Waziri, the general secretary of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.

This has sparked quite the storm on the internet, as people point to the well known “curse of the pharaohs”, a term used to refer to a supposed curse believed to be thrown upon anyone who disturbs an ancient Egyptian mummy.

CTV News, who also picked up the story, explains,

In the 10 years that followed the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922, 11 people who had at least visited the site died under sometimes myserious curcumstances, including lead researcher Howard Carter and several members of his team. Cureses involving ancient Egyptian tombs and artificats have also been the source of several Hollywood movies. Despite being on the verge of a supposed curse, other social media users are too intruiged to worry about the apparent risks.

A lot of mainstream media outlets present the idea of some sort of ‘curse’ as predominately mythological. The human mind definitely does, today that is, have trouble even comprehending how something like that could actually be real. Perhaps it invokes so much fear in one that we simply choose to ignore it, laugh it off and convince ourselves that such things may not exist.

It’s also interesting to note that the sarcophagus is covered in a thick layer of mortar, suggesting it has not been opened since the Ptolemaic period, which dates back between 305BC and 30BC. So, whatever is inside, it will still be intact…

Should It Be Opened?

Personally, I can understand the caution. If these coffins are to be left undisturbed by humanity, as instructed by the ancients, I believe these rules should be followed, and that’s probably because I am convinced in the validity of the concepts discussed in the Encyclopedia of Esoteric Studies, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, written by Manly P. Hall. In it, he describes how ancient rituals, practices, and magic were used by the ancients of different time periods, and this type of magic actually dominated in Egypt, which came to them from Atlantis.

“The masses, deprived of their birthright of understanding and grovelling in ignorance, eventually became the abject slaves of the spiritual impostors. Superstition universally prevailed and the black magicians completely dominated national affairs, with the result that humanity still suffers from the sophistries of the priestcrafts of Atlantis and Egypt.” 

It seems to be that such a curse could only derive from black magic, because it is associated with punishment and death, in this example, an Egyptian curse.  Why should we take the description of Egyptian culture from those who wrote about it so seriously, for example, societal structure, food practices and more, but when it comes to their description of magic, for example, we instantly place it into the theoretical and mythical realm, without even considering the possibility that it could be real? Have we become that closed minded?

You can read a little bit more about the above-mentioned topics in the article linked below.

A Detailed Description of the Lost Land of Atlantis & The Real Reason For Their Downfall

How Some of the World’s Elite Uses Black Magic Rituals To Conjure Up Entities For More Power & Control

The sarcophagus wasn’t the only thing discovered in the tomb, there was also an alabaster head of a man who some believe could represent the person who is buried within the coffin.

RT news points out,

Most ancient tombs discovered in Egypt were looted in one era or another, often leaving archaeologists with a limited understanding of the person inside. This untouched artifact gives the eager team a rare opportunity to uncover the mummy for themselves….Some people suggested the sarcophagus coupled with the recent discovery of a Neolithic henge in Ireland is either a sign of an impending apocalypse… or a very extravagant marketing scheme for a new Indiana Jones movie.

It’s important to close on the note that, not all which has been discovered is presented to us. We live in a world of secrecy, millions of pages of documents are classified every single year, for anybody to study the true history of, let’s say America, it would truly be impossible because it’s incredibly difficult to get something that actually reflects the truth.

I like to use the United States as an example, specifically, the National Security Agency (NSA) which was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 60’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.

What about archaeological discoveries, have they been kept from us? What about the Naszca mummies that were discovered in Peru? And all of the other discoveries within the realms of archaeology, like giants, completely left out of the historical record?

Historial and archaeological discoveries have the power to completely change what we know about human history and the origins of humanity. It wouldn’t be surprising that any artifact or physical traces of past life that don’t fit within the frame of accepted knowledge, or within the theory of evolution, to be completely unknown to humanity. This is one of many ways the global elite contain their control over humanity, and over the story of humanities origins.

Definitely, something to think about…

As far as the coffin goes, it looks they’re going to open it for sure…
