At advertising, they use women to attract. I mean arent they being degraded.
As men we can cum on their faces, even pee on them as seen in porn movies.
I mean I cant understand that. Can anybody help.
Please I dont mean to insult anybody here. I am sorry if I have hurt you by any means.

Thank-you for your thread. These are some good, honest questions.
We are all mature enough to have a civil discussion about this topic. Prove me wrong, and you will see me here quicker than you'll care to.

OTOH, there are people who will humiliate or degrade their 'partner' (victim) without the other's informed consent. This is usually criminal, but still happens a lot. And happens in a very real way in many relationships, one partner belittling the other to make him/herself feel superior to someone, even if it's only this man/woman. And the fact that the partner lets them do this is de facto proof that they were right - the partner is worthless, etc.
We can blame the media, advertising, the failure of religion and/or social order, or green men from Mars who fluoridate our drinking water, but the simple fact is, if these images did not stir the primal mating and territorial instincts in us, we would not respond.
So if these things bother you, it simply means your sense of moral appropriateness is set a bit lower than mainstream society. This is not bad, nor is it good, it's simply a measure of your sense of right and wrong and fair play. Fight the good fight, you believe in it.
But try to see what is of value in the other side, raw passion and power is what made the world what it is, both good and bad. And sexuality is not inherently good or bad. Sex is not inherently good or bad. There is sex. Without it, no human life. So it must be accepted as a normal, natural act. All else is cultural. Exploiting other humans is a sport almost as old as the world's oldest profession. Put 'em together and what have you got? Bippity-unzippity-boob...
Might as well enjoy the feast, even while working for rationality.
