Russell Brand, Unexpected TOB Theologian, on Porn and Fifty Shades

Russell Brand, Unexpected TOB Theologian, on Porn and Fifty Shades February 24, 2015

Fifty_Shades_of_Grey_1I am the last person who would have expected to agree with Russell Brand on many topics, let alone the topic of sex.

But his comments on the craze surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey had me furiously nodding my head in surprised agreement.

Some highlights:

– Brand connects the violence of warmongering and consumerism with softcore porn

– Brand quotes “a priest” on the topic of porn (who happens to be Saint John Paul II – or at least a quote commonly attributed to him)

– Objectification, need for validation, fear of intimacy: aftereffects of porn use

– Brand connects sex with procreation over and over

– Discussion on the dangers of a biological drive for procreation connected with a culture of objectification

Wow, basically this video is wisdom from unexpected places. Russell Brand is a man who speaks about the dangers of porn from experience.

Anyone who is affected by porn or uses porn (Fifty Shades of Grey included) should watch this:
