The Uncommon Man

Fantasy and Masturbation

As you can tell, if you read the Uncommon Man regularly, I like Hugo Schwyzer's blog. Here is another example why: below is a post in which he tries to reconcile, for himself, his feminist and spiritual beliefs around the issue of fantasy and masturbation - two topics that don't get a lot of discussion in feminist circles. To the point, Hugo responds to this question:

Why is it wrong for men to purchase, view, and masturbate to pornography, but not wrong for those same men to masturbate to demeaning fantasies of women in their heads? If we aren't just objecting to the industry of porn, but also to the way in which men and women objectify each other, shouldn't we consider also consider the ethics of masturbation?
