The Try Guys deliberately behave like overgrown children, always pointing fun at how pathetic they are, adopting typical gay behaviors even though they are straight. As if this is somehow uplifting. Naturally, their behavior to some degree is an act in order to get greater reactions from the audience. But we have to ask ourselves, is this portrayal and promotion of Western man as a Family Guy-esque weak buffoon really what our society needs? Do we really need more pathetic men and more masculine women in movies and television? And if we agree that we are tired of these celebrations of weakness and of the perversion of the natural order, then what can we do, as normal dissatisfied men and women, to change that image and give men back their manliness?
A survey of 28,000 users found that many Italian males started an "excessive consumption" of porn sites as early as 14 years old. After daily use in their early to mid-20s, they become inured to "even the most violent" images. The effects of developing their sexuality largely divorced from real-life relationships are gradual and devastating. "It starts with lower reactions to porn sites, then there is a general drop in libido and in the end it becomes impossible to get an erection," Carlo Foresta, head of the Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine (SIAMS), told reporters. However, the condition is not irreversible and a proper recovery is possible within just a few short months.
