Car Porn


"Satisfaction" is always something that we seem to be seeking. We almost never find it. It's no surprise that Corporate America can always find something that they claim will "satisfy" us; just look at the Snickers candybar.

For us men in particular, they develop something called pr0n. This usually involves videos or pictures of the item with which we desire; often women, but in this example, it's cars! Pr0n is to substitute for something we cannot have. We all know it's never as good as the real thing, but in a pinch, it'll do. In almost all cases (I say "almost" because I am not a person of absolutes) pr0n is unhealthy. To dwell on something you cannot have, regardless of reason, is just bad news. You are supposed to be content with what you have, and profess your thankfulness to God everyday.

Yes, I am thankful. I love God with all my heart. And, in various aspects of my life, I trust him 100%. But, I am human. I'm a human that lives in a modern society, albeit tainted, stupid, etc. You get the picture. Oh yeah, and I'm a man. Visual stimulus gets my heart pumping. I get a rush from imagining myself driving a machine at the edge of recklessness on a track... Heck, that's why car chases exist in movies! We want to be the guy getting chased by the cops at a zillion miles per hour, dodging all the traffic, pedestrians, & traffic cones!

My point is this: My name is Mark & I'm addicted to porn. It may only be car porn, but it's porn nonetheless. Is it still a bad thing if I love it anyway? Probably. Should I repent? Mmmm...not sure. This is probably just a substitute for something else missing in my life. I don't care. I just want to drive! (Insert sweet driving theme song here.)
