Is Watching Hentai a Sin? – Anime Porn and Christianity

Is watching hentai a sin?

For those of you who don’t know, hentai is a form of animated porn. This animated pornography has grown in popularity over time. Many Christians have no doubt that lusting after actors in porn is sinful, but what if the stars of the porn weren’t real? Anime porn features imaginary men and women, so is looking at them with lust really all that harmful? Is watching hentai a sin?

If you have ever wondered about the questions above, consider a few things. Many Christians grow frustrated in their fight with pornography. Overcoming a sin like porn is challenging. Because of this, many Christians fail over and over again. This pattern of failure leads to an intense feeling of guilt and defeat.

Naturally, Christians who feel like they can’t defeat porn altogether may decide to seek a “Less sinful” option. That is why hentai is so tempting. This causes a problem, though, because lusting over man-made characters is still sinful and harmful.

There is no reason that a Christian can’t quit porn addiction altogether. Don’t give in to the lie that it is impossible to stop. Replacing one type of porn with a different type of porn is not a victory. Watch this video to hear many more thoughts on this issue.

    Agreed man. Good article / video.

    I think the biggest issue as a Christian here comes down to the original heart issue, because even if it’s a made up person, the fact that you are thinking of women as objects it’s still a sin, because woman aren’t just objects for our sexual desires. And I think you covered this, for instance talking about the weird stuff that is involved in hentai. One big issue is that rape is so acceptable in hentai. The act of raping someone is a sin and even playing with the idea and making it acceptable in one form is still a sin.

    Also, if one is trying to avoid sexual addiction, this would not be a means to overcome it as it’s the same thing to your brain and it releases the dopamine drug into your brain that is what causes someone to be addicted to the act of viewing these sexual materials as well as the act of masturbation and ejaculation outside of the bounds of a marriage.

    If you are a married person, your sexual desire should be for your wife and if you are single, sexual desire is something you can hope for when you get married but it is not something that is going to bring you ultimate satisfaction or fulfillment. It at best is a momentary means of escaping responsibility or rather the illusion that you are somehow escaping your responsibility. At least that is my experience. Don’t get me wrong sex is great, but it was meant for a husband and wife to bring them into a new intimacy as a new being, and that was God’s intention.

    Good video and perspective man!
