“Mainstream” pornography constitutes the basic tension in “whateverbeing” such that lust is being equated to feelings of affection or, perhaps, that the completeness of the process of love is not according to the mutual relationship but based on the amount of satisfaction of sexual desires. This manifests structural interchangeability of the emotions and pleasure as well as the irreplaceability of the lustrous appetite with affectionate service. In this regard, “inessential commonality” is believed to take place. In spite of this realization, individuals are not bound to be reduced in such actions because of the genuineness of love, applicable to all sexual orientations, that emanates in the discourse of love. Proofs on the purport that a “saving power” radiates in the premises of pornography's “danger” zone are also itemized.

Keywords:   mainstream pornography, whateverbeing, lust, interchangeability, irreplaceability, inessential commonality, discourse of love, pornography's danger
