Delete his D drive or not (Annotation 3)

  

  My first annotation is about public young people’s opinions from PTT or discussion boards, and my second is professional opinions from one report by W.H. Jung’s report (2012).

  My third annotation is about one TV show, Hot Issue (2011), hosted by Belle Yu and Sam Cen, popular host in Taiwan. In the TV show, this episode, why men like to watch adult videos, not only talked about why men watch adult videos but also interviewed one couple, Mia and Echo, who would watch adult videos together, and interview people between different age, generation and sex. 

  Mia and Echo, is the younger couple who believe watching adult videos would promote the feeling between lovers. In the interview, Echo said that sometimes his needs are too frequent; he would download the adult video beforehand, and watch it to vent physiological needs when Mia was taking a bath. In the interview, it also talked about the different point when men and women watch adult videos. Most men would focus on the action while most women would focus on the plot. 

There is another elder couple, Cool Dad and Cool Mom, who is married and having children. They would watch adult videos to promote their feeling with their children. Instead of forbidding them to watch adult videos, they would choose to let them watch and discuss with them to tell them the differences between video and reality. They sometimes also watch adult videos to add some interests in their daily lives.

Actually, it is natural for human to have demands. If the way they use to solve the demands without bothering others and don’t cause problems, I couldn’t figure out what is the point to forbid.

Delete his Drive or not (Annotation 2 revised)

Report from Coolloud website.(2012) It is hard for sex to get rid of the negative tag.(Chinese)

Chuen Juei Ho, the professor of Department of English at NCU once said that our society usually regards adult videos as devil or something dirty, and sees it as the main reason why sexual harassments and sexual violences happen.

However, if it is that easy the reality could be affected by watching adult videos, and been connected to the incidents mentioned above, then we should prohibit lots of movies that we called exciting movies (爽片), which means the movies only have lots of huge scenes and without consuming audiences’ brain cells. Most people love to watch them during their free time. If so, fast and furious should be prohibited because it may lead to car crushes and drag racings, and lots of action movies also need to be prohibited because they would lead to violent cases.

There is one interesting picture on the website, stuff no-one told me, showed that “Porn movie and Disney are responsible for the most frustrated human beings I know.”




It is funny to compare adult videos and Disney, because actually it gives people the different meaning when watch it, but it leads to the same ending. If one person is too addicted to the Disney or adult videos, they would still influence his real life.  

It is true that some of the adult videos present in a violent way, like 3P or SM and so on. But this is how the market works, the demand exists and the supply shows up. If we have to forbid the film-makes to take this kind of adult videos, I think it is more important to focus on education, to tell the students what is too exaggerating and what is unrealistic instead of seeing it as something untellable. Because they will find another way to know this, and without education, they would just accept all this unrealistic information.

Delete his D Drive or not (Reflection)

My first annotation is about why men need to watch adult videos and what would their girlfriend feel when she found out her boyfriend watching adult videos, and my sources are from PTT or the discussion boards. Therefore, most part of my sources is from young people, who are familiar with Internet than elder generation. My second annotation is from Chuen-Juei Ho, the professor of Department of English at NCU, talking about, in Taiwan, sex has always been posted on a negative tag. My third annotation is going to talk about a TV talk show, Hot Issue, viewing why men like to watch adult videos, it mentions different answers and opinions between generation and characters, which some are fathers some are not, or some are married some are not. In the show, they also interview one couple who would watch adult videos together, it is really not the same as the usual thing couple would do in Taiwan.

After the discussion in class, my fourth annotation may do deep research in the different view about pornography between America and Europe. In my first and third annotation, I had found the difference between different age, so in the last annotation, it would be better to compare not only the age but also intercultural difference. There are some papers talking about this, and it is interesting to do this research that I hadn’t thought about it before.

Other group’s topics are common. But when listening to their reports, it seems they had read some information about their topic, so they could write their topics in new and different angles.  

 Justine and Joselin’s topic, “Premarital Cohabitation”, they not only talk about the face of affection, they also refer economic ability is one of the reason, which is a new angle. However, the most interesting and strangest part is that they have the same data but lead to different opinion, which is really unexpected for the readers. It would make us start to wonder why, and lead us to the next annotation.

Emily and Claire’s topic, “Adultery pulls you out of the abyss of emptiness” is talking about should accepted the adultery for giving children a complete family or divorcing. This group had posed many examples, which is one and another story, which makes the reader easy to understand which part they stand, their view, and makes their articles more interesting. Most of their sources come from the library; they said they went to there and read the books one after another which are all having relation to their topic.


Niki and Phoebe’s topic,” Is it appropriate to use showgirl as a commercial strategy?”, investigate the common phenomenon now in Taiwan. Many girls wear a few clothes, shuttling in the exhibition, selling the products, and some guys took lots of photos of them. Their topic is easy to connect to our daily life because we all have seen this phenomenon before. However, there is a few problems that their arguments tends to one part when listening to their report.

Delete his D Drive or not (Revised 1)


Statistic data shows that in Taiwan, most men watch adult videos once or twice a week. When these men have girlfriends, they would still watch adult films, maybe without letting their girlfriends know. Therefore, would these girlfriends delete his D drives if they are unpleasant about this? Their girlfriends would think “OH MY GOD! You still watch ADULT VIDEOS when you are with me”. They can’t understand why.
Below is one of my friend’s story.
  I have two friends and they are couples. One day they have an argue later they broke up in a few days. The reason is because one day girl found that there are some adult films in the boy’s cellphone, and she couldn’t understand. So she asked her boyfriend, and her boyfriend said it is usual for men to have adult videos in their cellphones. But the girl didn’t accept answer, she thinks that why you have adult films in the cellphone when you have girlfriend? After that, they had a furious fight. One day, the girl deleted her boyfriend’s adult films all in his cellphone. The boy was really angry. But I didn’t know that his angry part is because his girlfriend deleted the adult films or because he thought that his girlfriend didn’t respect him to delete his files and didn’t tell him.

  I stand for accepting a man watching adult videos even when he has a girlfriend.
Girlfriends may think that men don’t love them, so they watch adult videos, and other naked women. But, it is unfair and ridiculous to connect these two incidents together, since some women would cave into the drama plot and couldn’t get out.


An adult video is to a man what a soap drama is to a woman; the difference is that an adult video is for physiological needs when soap drama is for psychological needs. Man may not understand their girlfriends crying over before the little screen. They may not understand their girlfriends only have two legs but they have dozens of shoes, as if they are centipedes. Even though, the adult videos’ tastes now are dramatic, but according to the motivation, it is the same, and it won’t affect the relationship between the lovers.

Annotation 1 revised

My last article is talking about should girlfriends accept their boyfriends watching adult videos.
  Men didn't know why women hate adult video so madly, and women can't understand why their boyfriends still watch it when they have girlfriends.

  Women would consider that men watch adult videos means they didn't be satisfied. This war between men and women is always a hot issue in relationship. There are lots of discussions about it on Internet.

  Most replies on Ptt and discussion boards which stand on men's side reply that it is a custom for them and it is farfetched to connect watching adult videos and loving his girlfriend or not these two incidents.

  In the thesis in source 2, there are some reasons why men watching adult videos.


  1. Because they were bored.

  When women are boring, they would gather to go shopping. For some people, adult videos are just a tool to kill time and see it as a kind of drama.


  2. Adding desires when making love


  3.Vent physiological need

   Some men may not have girlfriends, some men may have girlfriends but their girlfriends are tired, feel uncomfortable. Sometime, men may just want to vent physiological need, they also know they have to respect their girlfriends. Therefore, they can't ask girlfriends for sex whenever they need it. It will make their girlfriends feel uncomfortable and disrespect. Watching adult videos become an easy and convenient way to vent physiological needs.
  People feel upset when there are too many bad moods hidden in their mind, so does the desire. It is easier to watch adult films when they want to vent physiological need. It is a physiological need like we need to eat and sleep to live.


 4. Curiosity 
 5. Rich sex knowledge  
 6. Imitate 
 7. Satisfied the desire as a peeper 

 8. Watching beautiful and sexy people
