The demise of guys: Porn makes guys romantically stunted and socially awkward

How is porn hurting our chances for real, romantic intimacy?

Philip Zimbardo says: "The only people who should care about this is parents of boys and girls, educators, gamers, film makers, and women who want a real man who they can talk to, who can dance, who can make love slowly, and who can contribute to the evolutionary pressures to keep our species above banana slugs."

The following is a portion of a TED talk from well-noted psychologist Philip Zimbardo. In this short clip he unpacks some of the reasons why many men today fear intimacy with women, and why we are becoming more and more socially awkward. He also discusses the role pornography plays in this cultural problem. (Other than the unsavory comment about Jennifer Lopez, the talk itself is relatively clean.)
