Do you watch Tiktok too?

Tiktok..is no more just the sound of a clock now. It is more of a so-called ‘talent’ exhibition for teenagers and youngsters, but is it worth spending time on?

Few apps are mandatory in every smartphone irrespective of the brand of phone or the user, like Whatsapp, facebook, play store/istore etc. Tiktok is also becoming one such app. It enables its users to post edited videos online for the other users to see.  People are of the opinion that Tiktok users get an opportunity to display their skills and abilities. However, whether they are skilled or not we’ll discuss later. One thing is for sure that entertainment can become a serious issue when enjoyed too much.

Same is the case with Tiktok. Not only people upload their videos in it but also waste hours just surfing the videos of their choices. If you too have Tiktok in your phone, here are few points that will help you move away from it.

The only thing people do on Tiktok is lip sync. It doesn’t have any original content, just lip syncing and mimicry.

If you have not noticed but people uploading videos are unnecessarily dramatic. Imagine how would they look if seem in real life. You’ll laugh your heart out. They actually work hard to be that dramatic.

It takes a minimum of 10-12 minutes to make a video even if just lip syncing, as people want perfect videos to upload.

People making videos for Tiktok might be stupid but whom are they doing all this for? The audience. Hence is it not correct to say that the viewers of such videos are even stupid? You decide.

The truth about pornography

You might think that pornography is harmless, read on to find out how it affects your perspective towards sex and relationships
Nishtha JunejaTeentalkindia Content Writer

Have you ever wondered why porn is often viewed in secret? Why does every discussion about pornography conveyed in hushed whispers. Let’s try to understand the psychology of porn:

Blue films used as stimulants

Many teenagers discover porn during adolescence. It is exciting and new. Many teens use it as a stimulant to masturbate. This can become addictive. Slowly, teens make excuses to avoid social gatherings or homework to watch porn videos. It starts to take over their lives.

According to Dr Rajan Bhonsle, sexologist, these are the four stages of pornography:

1.Addiction: When a teen is addicted to watching porn videos every day and finds ways to watch porn on a regular basis.

2.Escalation: Over time, addicts require more explicit material to meet their sexual needs.

3.Desensitisation: What was first perceived as gross, shocking and disturbing, in time becomes common and acceptable.

4. Acting out sexually: There is an increasing tendency to act out behaviours viewed in pornography.

However, this can pose a serious concern in the later stages of their lives. There might be a possibility when teens would want to imitate porn stars. Sex in an intimate romantic relationship or marriage is not like a porn movie.

“Research has shown that pornography and its messages are involved in shaping attitudes and encouraging behaviour that can harm individuals and their families. In addition, pornography promotes the allure of adultery, prostitution and unreal expectations that can result in dangerous promiscuous behaviour,” according to Rajan Bhonsle.

Tips on getting rid of the addiction of watching porn videos by Teentalk India Expert Kshitija Sawant:

1.Sex Education is essential. Whenever, you get the opportunity to attend courses, programs or seminars on sex education, please do so as it will give you some realistic, insights on the concept of sex and reproduction.

2. Knowledge is Power: Once you have the required knowledge, you will come to realize that sex is appropriate in what kind of situations and inappropriate in certain other situations. It is not something that is ‘dirty’ but instead something that needs to be accepted as a way of living life.

3. Additional recreation is a must: As a teenager, it is important for you to channelize your energies by taking up a sport or a favourite past time activity like creative writing, dancing, painting to name a few.

4. Everyone time you find yourself feeling the urge to watch porn, relax, take a few deep breaths and meditate. This will help you to calm down and appreciate what nature has to offer you.
