As I am man of culture, I consume a bit of smut here and there. I have come across quite a few seedy mangas and visual novels that had surprisingly well thought out characters and also believable situations, and I found them to be an adequate reflection of certain real-world aspects involving horny women who wanted to avoid getting a reputation as sluts. Of course, there are also sluts who embrace their bad reputation. Women who cheat compulsively exist in the real world, and it is also true that certain demographics have more sex than others. Some of the stories I like best are about such episodes of debauchery, before the real world comes calling again. Examples include the “summer love” trope, where accidental lovers need to part at the end of the vacation, or casual sex at college. In some recent releases, though, it seems that the writing is getting worse, featuring horny women who exhibit less and less realistic behavioral traits. I will first highlight one such example and afterwards muse about a possible connection to societal trends we have been seeing, and future developments.
A few days ago, I read the visual novel (VN) Secret Pie. It caught my interest due to the artwork, which is by Kidmo. He has quite a following online, but I have been reading that he has gotten into some legal difficulties. Perhaps he just wants to keep a low profile nowadays. Anyway, the art in this VN is fantastic. The story, however, is not. In this VN, the protagonist has a rich uncle and becomes the owner of an apartment complex, but the agreement is that he has to also take on the role of caretaker. You then meet three women, all of whom exhibit mostly completely unrealistic behavior, whereas good smut is grounded in reality. The first woman is a young professional who upholds an image of perfection. Of course she invites her new landlord in, and as she notices his boner, which he got due to drinking her stimulating tea, and looking at her ample breasts, it is her duty to rectify this situation. This made me laugh because it was so ridiculous. The next woman is characterized a bit better: she is a fully self-absorbed e-thot who makes money online on an OnlyFans-inspired website. She wants to manipulate the protagonist, which is believable, and if you have jumped through enough hoops, she spreads her legs (lol). Bizarrely, the sex scene happens on the floor, right next to a bed. In the real life, this leads to carpet burn, so whoever wrote this scene probably does not have a lot of experience. The third chick bangs you because you are nice to hear and tell her that she is a great artist (lol, again). There is no subtlety, no suspense, and not even any plausible transition from not-sex to sex.
After shelving Secret Pie, I wondered why the writer did not bother doing a better job. The production values of this game are quite high, so it is obvious that they cared about their creation. Then I wondered if the problem is that the writer had no frame of reference. I am going out on a limb here, but I think that the last few years to perhaps a decade have seen a fundamental shift in society. Clearly, the easy availability of pornography has shaped views on sex. Quite likely, women began to shave their pussy as a response to watching porn for inspiration. Anal bleaching is a relatively recent phenomenon. Young women also seem to perceive pornography as somewhat real. There was a time when women were hesitant to suck a guy’s dick. Some would tell you that this is something only prostitutes do. Today, this is no longer the case, and you will find women who work hard on getting rid of their gag reflex so that they can deep-throat your cock, or any other they happened to come across. While this may sound amusing to some, what I find more baffling is hearing about women who do not enjoy the sex acts they engage in but do so anyway because they think that this is what men expect.
According to recent survey results, people are having less and less sex. The zoomers have less sex compared to any other cohort going back fifty or sixty years. In combination with the influence of pornography, you therefore have two trends working towards the same goal. On the one hand, people have less sex but on the other, when they do have sex, the engage in behavior that has been patterned after porn. Thus, it may be that this is a self-amplifying overall trend: Women and men develop a warped view on sexuality, with leads to a subpar experience, in particular for women, who in turn may want to have even less sex in the future. This is purely speculative, of course, but it would not surprise me if a woman who thinks she has to debase herself like some slut in the porn business walks away deeply dissatisfied by the experience. If anyone would have the goal of turning young men and women away from sex, and thus reduce the fertility rate even further, then this would certainly be a viable approach. For added impact, you could put young women and men on meds like SSRIs or Ritalin. I have a hunch that these interventions focus on whites, but I could be completely wrong so I will refrain from making any wild claims in this regard.
