Ask A Genius 211 – Paradise of Porn

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

June 27, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: You see these playout in preferences of verbal expression. [Laughing] That is a really abstract way of putting it. Men and their titles; women and their makeup. Typically, women will advantage their looks; men will advantage their status to some way.

Also, there is denigration of competitors. Then there is denigration by men against other men’s status, or women denigrating other women’s beauty.

Rick Rosner: That is pretty straightforward, then you get into ironic hipster culture. Where the criterion is authenticity, it is about living authentically. People riding antique bicycles, having ironic hair, using old non-technological techniques.

In hipness culture, you try to arrive at a state of hipness authentically, through having honest interests in these things as opposed to being a poser who is only interested in it because everyone else is interested.

Jacobsen: What about people on the fence who just want to fit in and so adapt to the culture, or sub-culture?

Rosner: You can choose a culture. Or you can turn out to not be well-adapted to any niche. You can choose to opt out, and just be adversarial. The 2016 election had all sorts of adversarial groups, like the 4Chan groups, or Pepe the Frog people.

People sharing intolerant messages, and a lot of the pro-Trump people – or the more visibly offensive pro-Trump people, or the alt-Right people. A lot of those people belong to cultures of opting out.

Guys who have given up o being popular and getting laid. Lonely basement guys, trolls basically, troll culture is an opting out cultures.

Jacobsen: The trolls, the MGTOWs, much of the men’s movement…

Rosner: …there are a lot of guys in those cultures who have decided it is not worth it for them to find a niche to compete to hook up with girls, and so they are going to stay on the sidelines and amuse themselves by trolling.

That points at masturbation culture.

Jacobsen: That overlaps with porn culture.

Rosner: They are part of exactly the same thing, I think. Everybody is still horny. But it is easier than ever to relieve one’s horniness without social contact. Yea, it is easier to get off without social contact.

So, you have people opting out and giving up on social contact, and giving up on productive, positive social contact altogether, and live lives that are pretty solitary except for online interactions, but they can be hostile because they don’t have to meet any societal standards to get laid.

A paradise of porn.
