Devon Franklin, who’s a Hollywood movie producer, minister, author and husband to actress Meagan Good, has a message for all of those in relationships: Stay away from pornography.

He gave the same advice in his book “The Truth About Men: What Men and Women Need to Know,” and, in his recent appearance on “The Breakfast Club,” show co-host Angela Yee asked if it’s OK to watch porn casually, as long as one isn’t addicted.

Devon Franklin said pornography is extremely harmful to relationships.

“I don’t think it should be done, ’cause in the book I have a whole thing about the one you feed,” Franklin began. “And so within us you have to feed the master of the dog. I call vice ‘dog food,’ I call virtue ‘soul food’ and I would put porn in the category of dog food, because that’s what it is. It’s vice.

“You look at something that is not real. I’m a producer and I make movies, so you can look at the screen and say, ‘Wow, I wanna put on a suit and fly around the city and have these claws, and you can’t do it.”

“A lot of times you see these images and you say ‘Oh, I learned some tricks.’ But what it does is it creates an unrealistic expectation of what intimacy really looks like,” Franklin explained.

In another part of the interview, Franklin spoke just about men and said sometimes they can be dogs, which he used as a metaphor for lust.

But the producer didn’t confine the dog-like behavior to just men seeking women, he said they have a tendency to lust in other areas of their life, which can be very harmful.

“I believe that every man has a dog,” said Franklin. “It’s an analogy, it’s a metaphor for lust. And that’s a selfish impulse for professional, sexual, financial gain by any means necessary, even if those means are detrimental.”

Many liked what Devon had to say, and others not so much, especially the part about men acting like dogs.

“Can’t lie, it’s hard to listen to this because he is mostly right,” someone wrote. “But I can’t help but grind my teeth.”

“So why is it all on men?” wrote another. “Men have our faults, you bet but your society is only as decadent as the women. It’s a 50/50 split. We both got work.”
