What was the effect of watching porn on Billie Eilish?

Billie Eilish revealed in an interview with The Howard Stern Show on Sirius XM that he started watching porn at just 11 years old.

The now 19-year-old pop singer says, “Porn is a disgrace,” but when she started watching the material, she said it felt like she was “one of those boys.”

She says she was exposed to porn at such a young age that the content of the video deemed her normal sexual behavior, but over time she said her opinion had changed.

Most of the videos that Eilish saw involved abusive behavior that left her wondering what sex was supposed to be like.

“I think it really destroyed my brain and I’m incredibly devastated that I was exposed to too much porn,” she told Stern.

“The first few times, you know, I had sex, I wasn’t saying things that weren’t good. It was because I thought that was what I should have been attracted to.”

Why did he discuss his history of watching porn?

Eilish is a four-time Grammy Award winner and many of his songs are known for their dark themes.

On the radio show, her recent song, Male Fantasy, from her second album Happier Than Ever, was brought up in relation to the lyrics of distracting herself with porn.

Singing the song about his breakup, he says:

“home alone, trying not to eat”
“Distract yourself with pornography
“I hate the way she looks at me”
“I can’t stand the dialogue, she never will be
“She’s satisfied, it’s a male fantasy
“I’m going back to therapy”

Recent 2020 studies show that 90 percent of teens have viewed pornography at some point and 10 percent of those surveyed said they watch the material daily.

Dr Paul Weigl, an associate medical director of ambulatory services at Nachoagh Hospital, told Hartford Healthcare: “The Internet has made pornography more common among children and adolescents by making it available and affordable.

“People often underestimate how heavily trafficked these sites are.”

What else did Billie Eilish talk about with Howard Stern?

Eilish said she experienced a successful case of COVID-19 in August and “would have died” if she had not been vaccinated.

“It was bad, I mean, I wasn’t dead and I wasn’t going to die, but it doesn’t take away how sad it was. I mean, it was horrible,” she said.

Her COVID-19 symptoms continued for almost two months and she still has side effects from the disease.

Eilish campaigned heavily for getting the vaccine, claiming it saved his life.

“I want it to be clear that it is because of the vaccine that I am fine,” she said. “I think if I hadn’t been vaccinated, I would have died, because it was bad… when I say it was bad, I mean it felt terrible, but actually in the planning of COVID, It was not bad. .”

He also discussed his concern until the start of his Saturday Night Live hosting on December 11th.

Eilish said the week ahead was a tough one for the show. She cried most of the week and admitted to throwing up on a plane on her way to New York.

“Preparing for SNL F***ing was crazy, man. It was really foreign,” she told Howard Stern.

Eilish said that she cried in the Green Room and went to the show every night until the show aired, saying, “It’s like this, it’s like this. SNL… these amazingly talented actors are around a table where, somehow, I am the main course.”

But as soon as she stepped onto the stage to applause from the live audience, Eilish said all her fears were gone.

“As soon as I looked at the crowd and felt their joy, it was like I wasn’t nervous. It was a relief,” she said.

“I was like, ‘Oh, this is really incredible, and I don’t have to worry. It’s just for fun.'”
