The porn industry all over the world has been growing at an alarmingly high rate. This is so because people who watch pornography once get hooked on it and then to break free is very difficult. Most people say that they watch porn to help improve their sex life. This is not true, pornography corrupts your mind. What sort of a man or woman can improve their sex life by watching adults molest and have sex with small kids and young girls?
In the same way a lot of people talk about online gambling as a big sin. The porn watched over the net by millions is accepted whereas online gambling is not. This is nothing but moral hypocrisy.
So what is it that people think is wrong with online gambling?
1. People gamble online for fun and for the money. People spend a whole lot of money watching porn and what do they get from it, some say fun. But what people get most of all from watching porn is only a perverted mind.
2. Gambling online gives you the chance to win a whole lot of money. If you are lucky and get the jackpot then you could be possible millions richer. Watching porn online brings in no cash whatsoever. It only pushes you and urges you to watch more and more porn. Watching porn is not free of a cost. You will have to either pay the site to view their videos or you will have to download the video which takes a whole lot of time and of course the expense of buying larger and larger hard drives to contain your downloads.
3. Online gambling is something that you can do from anywhere. You can sit with your laptop in a garden and play your favorite game of poker or slots. All you need is to focus your attention; you don’t need any privacy for this. You can always walk into a cyber café and play your online gambling games. This is not so with pornography. Pornography cannot be viewed anywhere you want. You need to have a room or place where you are not disturbed and there should be no kids around you no matter what.
4. Friends and family can always sit with you and watch you gamble online. They can play games with you or compete with you. It is something which can be enjoyed by one and all. Pornography cannot be viewed in front of your family members. You can try watching it with your friends but that too depends on the kind of friends you have.
5. Online gambling games like Blackjack etc require you to concentrate, think, strategize and then play. In other words these games are good for your brain as it gives it a lot of work. Pornography when viewed in small doses can cause you to day dream and just keep thinking about it. It is a big addiction and you may be forced to think about sex all day long and that is not good for your brain or body. Constant thoughts of sex can even make you err or take you on the wrong path.
6. Of course gambling can be an addiction too and you can lose lots of hard earned money. But when you gamble online, the choice of you playing or quitting is entirely yours. There is nobody like your opponents or friends tempting you to play even if you are on a losing streak.
Just forget about watching porn and just start online gambling for real fun.
