when the dust setttles, what of this thing called "pr0n"?

so, in like 20, 30, 50, or 100 years, what will sociologists have to say about the sociological phenomena that is online porn? and will there be some sort of consensus about just how solipsistic it made the sexual habits of certain males prone to over indulgence? just how much damage did it do to couples, business productivity, and basic self-actualization? did it attain a technological pinnacle, paralyzing part of entire generations? did it become a 21st century siren, too alluring and intoxicating for some to resist? did the technological replacement became more entrancing and pleasurable than the real-life girlfriend or wife? would the best efforts of today's hugh hefner and larry flynt be considered weed to tomorrow's crack? when does the simulacra overcome the authentic?

then again, porn will be with us as long as there is human civilization, and it'll likely get more and more technologically enticing, so said sociologists will be too busy wanking to write anything down, most like.
