In the very least I get good fashion inspiration.” You gonna let your husband use those same arguments with porn? Maybe that’s how you roll, I don’t know, but I would think that a lot of people wouldn’t accept those arguments.I certainly wouldn’t, because those arguments are ridiculous, both for lifestyle porn and for porn porn. It may be exciting and stimulating and entertaining, but it is not real. It may appear that these people are actually doing these things.They are addicted to the prospect that this is a picture of life lived to perfection. Screw waiting until the afterlife for your mansions on high, there are people living it now, baby!In fact, as soon as they finish building one mansion, they start building a different one, because…well…they can. Watching all of this is addictive and it sets unrealistic expectations for marriage and life that can lead to feelings of disappointment and inadequacy. What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is a sweeping epidemic of Lifestyle Porn.

To her half million followers, Braxlynn and kid had apparently spent a lovely afternoon invested in some quality mother-daughter time, making a super easy and stylish treat in a kitchen that looks like it’s the celestial room’s butler’s pantry. People already have entire websites dedicated to mocking these women and pointing out the ridiculousness of posting a $1,500 “low end” alternative to their favorite $4,500 Tuesday afternoon outfit or the fact that their “baggy pants and sweater” outfit cost more than my best suit (as an aside, the only way I would ever dream of coming close to spending $4,500 on a single outfit is if I was attempting a run through the Mines of Moria and needed full armor fashioned of pure mithril that had been annealed in a vat of dragon tears).

We see the perfect snapshots in time and our fantasizing does the rest.

We construct the narrative that fills in the gaps between these idyllic moments with an equally idyllic life.

No mention of Sarah, no mention of the nanny, no mention of reality. What I want to talk about is the effect that these blogs have on the millions of people who subscribe to them.

I have to admit that although I had heard Sarah’s story some time ago, I didn’t actually look at Braxlynn’s blog post until just recently. It is a vain illusion pedaled to millions of women around the world for attention, praise, validation and wealth. You can see the effect it has on people by the comments on Instagram.

A few years ago she was asked by her ultra fashionable friend, let’s call her Braxlynn, to come over and help her make an ultra fashionable treat.You see, Braxlynn’s home is palatial and, by her own admission, she doesn’t really even know where all of her kitchen stuff is. Braxlynn called down her nanny to momentarily deposit her young daughter in the kitchen.Braxlynn briefly overcame her fear of using her hands to do anything but work the zipper on a Louis Vuitton bag and took a moment to stand next to her daughter and pose for a treat-making photo in media res.You see, Braxlynn is a very successful blogger, regularly posting pictures of herself in designer clothes doing designer things, like standing in the middle of public streets with one knee slightly bent and one hand lightly touching her hair or the brim of her chic hat.
