I never thought that I’d be linking Homer Simpson and pornography together. The episode was Marge longing for a new kitchen, so Homer decides to undertake the project himself to save money. His first task was to smash up the ceiling and as he did his old collection of girlie magazines fall out. The obvious thing to do is to get rid of them and so they end up in the garbage bin. But here lies the problem, unfortunately Bart and Milhaus open the bin to discover the stash.
The influence quickly takes hold and they end up turning the tree house into the “Playdude Mansion” holding adult parties for their friends and adorning the classic Hugh Hefner trade mark of slippers and dressing gowns.
But the ironic thing about this story plot is that this is how most guys discover porn. It’s all packaged up to look funny and entertaining but carries a serious message, for countless men’s lives have been ruined and many marriages are suffering because someone didn’t dispose of their dirty magazines correctly and these end up being a real temptation to innocent kids who come across them.
The punch-line of the episode comes from Homer playing the devil’s advocate“better to hear it from me now than from their parents when they are old enough”. This is basically Satan’s message. Satan will always make it his priority to go after the next generation to rob them of Gods blessings and peace over their lives. He will make sure to awaken their sexuality well before it due to be awakened. Do you honestly think that it’s sheer conscience that the average age of boys discovering porn is between 8-10 years of age? Feeding, implanting and programming their minds with an ungodly expectation of what sex is at an early age.
This is the reality that we are faced with – which is society through child-like cartoons such as The Simpsons, is revealing hardcore porn to our kids.
