Cultural Quote #249: Russell Brand Talking About Pornography

So living in this culture now where there’s just iceberg of filth floating through every house on WiFi. It’s inconceivable of what it must be like to be a young adolescent now with this kind of access to porn. I know that pornography is wrong, that I shouldn’t be looking at it. There is a general feeling, isn’t there, and you can recall if you look at pornography that this isn’t what’s the best thing for me to do, this isn’t the best use of my time now. I don’t put that laptop down and think “There, what a productive piece of time spent, connecting with the world.”

I feel like if I had total dominion over myself I would never look at myself. One day at a time–I’d kick it out of my life. Pornography is not something that I like. It’s something that I haven’t been able to make a long-term commitment to not looking at. And it’s affecting my ability to relate to women, to relate to myself, to my own sexuality.
