The Truth About Porn And How It Destroys Men (Bedros Keuilian)

Today I’ve transcribed a clip in which Armenian-American serial entrepreneur and multi-millionaire Bedros Keuilian gives his two cents on the topic of pornography. In the clip, Keuilian answers the question from a viewer “Why is pornography bad?” While Keuilian prefaces his answer by saying “Pornography is bad for one simple reason,” in reality he proceeds to cite numerous reasons.

Keuilian explains that pornography is a false dopamine hit. What he means is that it trains the mind to experience dopamine, which is naturally a good thing, from shameful, guilt-inducing behaviors (negative). This creates a contradiction where the porn user has a toxic, love-hate relationship with their habit or addiction. Keuilian adds that shame and guilt are low vibrations and that porn usage makes you “feel like a low vibrating human and you attract low, bad, negative stuff into your life.” Finally, Keuilian addresses porn-induced erectile dysfunction, which interferes with real-world relationships and is a consequence of excessive stimulation and artificial sexual conditioning.

The video has garnered ~3 million views in just 6 months. Check it out and the transcript below!

People are like, “Hey, man, porn doesn’t affect me. I just do it occasionally to let off some steam.” Listen, I got no beef with you, but I’m letting you know, those companies that produce porn have designed it to take you down the rabbit hole and hold you there for as long as they can.

Transcript of “The Truth About Porn And How It Destroys Men” (Bedros Keuilian)

Interviewer: Vincent asks, “Why is pornography bad?”

Keuilian: Oof. “Why is pornography bad?” Pornography is bad for one simple reason. And that is that you’re getting false dopamine hits from doing something that makes you feel guilty and gives you shame. All of you can Google “vibration chart.” All of us have a vibration. Everything in life has a vibration.

In fact, there is a true story. There was a bridge in Baltimore. It was built like in the 60s. Dude, it’s crazy. And the way they built the bridge, etc., it had the same vibrational frequency as wind at 22 mph. So when wind kicked up to 22 mph, that 22 mph and the vibrational status of that bridge were in line, and this bridge would start vibrating and shaking and swaying, and cars were getting tossed around. They had to demolish that whole bridge and rebuilt it.

Vibration is real. You’ve been around people. You walk in, you meet them, and immediately you feel this weird like low-energy. Like they’re just sucking out the energy of the room. That’s a low-frequency person. Right, and you’ve been around high-frequency people. So if you look at the frequency chart or vibrational chart of humans, you’ll see that guilt and shame are at the very bottom. And they rank at like vibration level 5 and 6.

In the middle is acceptance. Acceptance. That I’m going to accept that I’m a flawed human, but I’m going to take action at becoming a better human. That’s vibrational level 400. At the very top of that pyramid of frequency or vibration is self-actualization. Happiness. Fulfillment. Gratitude. That is the vibration level of 12 to 1400 in terms of frequency.

And so when you are watching porn, you’re getting dopamine hits and those dopamine hits — you’re conditioning yourself, “Okay, when I do something shameful and that I feel guilty about, I get dopamine hits.” Oh my God, I do not want to get this awesome great dopamine hit that’s supposed to be good for me. Like working out, that’s a dopamine hit. Making love to your spouse, that’s a good dopamine hit. Doing a hard day’s work and feeling accomplished, that’s a good dopamine hit.

Watching porn secretly because you don’t want to be found because you’ll feel guilt and shame and getting a dopamine hit — you’re conditioning yourself to get dopamine out of negativity, negative things, number 1. Number 2, guilt and shame are very low on the frequency chart, and so you just feel like a low vibrating human and you attract low, bad, negative stuff into your life.

Number 3, and this has recently been found in the last 12-14 months. There’s something called porn-induced erectile dysfunction. Porn-induced erectile dysfunction. So there used to be a time where people were starting to get impotent or have erectile dysfunction in their 40s or 50s or 60s as they get older, right? Now young kids, teens, kids in their 20s and their 30s are unable to get an erection and have sex because they’re so used to watching a porn scene that is so exaggerated, so over-the-top, that has released so much intense dopamine — when you’re watching a threesome, a foursome, gangbangs, whatever the f*ck it is that you weirdos are into. And I don’t judge you, I’ve been down that path, but I stopped.

But when you’re into that shit, and then you come home to your beautiful spouse, and you have to make love to her, you’re like “Oh, I don’t know man. It’s not 8 of you on top of each other with weird tools and gadgets, and a swing, and a ball gag from Pulp Fiction.” Shout out to Quentin Tarantino from Pulp Fiction…

So how are you going to make sweet love to your wife if you can’t get hard because you’ve got porn-induced impotence. That’s sad, so that is why pornography is absolutely bad for you.

Interviewer: Well, what about the people that — I know there are going to be comments. People are like, “Aw, well, he’s just one of those guys who’s anti-whatever.” What about the people that ask, “Okay, what if I just do every once in a while? Like I’m not addicted, I can stop whenever I want. What do you say to those people?”

Guess what, if you’re not addicted and you’re not getting any of the negative side effects, this is a free country. Go for it. I’m not your daddy. I will give you fatherly advice on this show, but I’m not your daddy. I’m not your God. I’m not anyone other than some guy on YouTube and with a podcast who lives an awesome life, who is congruent with his core values, who has been down all the weird paths of all the different vices that these guys have gone down.

Bit I’m telling you right now they have designed pornography where even a little bit becomes a lot. Because you want the next, you want the next, you want the next, and you realize “Holy crap. I’m addicted.” It’s just like a vape pen. “Oh, I only take a hit here and I take a hit there.” And then you see the dudes on a plane who are fiending for a hit from a vape pen because they’ve been on a 3-hour flight, and they can’t wait to just run out of that terminal and take a hit of their vape pen.

I don’t ever want anything to enslave my mind and heart that way. Not pornography, not nicotine, not alcohol, not food, not television, not any addiction out there. Not gambling — gambling will create such an addictive component to it. None of it. Not even money. Like money is very intoxicating, as well, right? But money is something we need, and you can learn to be good and generous with money. But you can also start getting so addicted to it that you start doing illegal things that are outside of your core values and character, and justify it by “Well, I’m just making money and doing good with it,” until you end up in jail. Plenty of great, nice, good people are in jail because they made bad decisions, and it was the addictive factor.

People are like, “Hey, man, porn doesn’t affect me. I just do it occasionally to let off some steam.” Listen, I got no beef with you, but I’m letting you know, those companies that produce porn have designed it to take you down the rabbit hole and hold you there for as long as they can.

Interviewer: I also heard a quote, too. I’m going to butcher it, but it basically was “If someone’s asking ‘Can I just do it in moderation’ –whatever the addiction is, whatever the thing is. If you have to do it in moderation, you’re still a slave to it, because you can’t even stop. You still have to do it a little bit.”

Keuilian: Exactly. Very well said.
