Jody said:

If Patrick is using the porn for masturbation, which he probably is, he is demonstrating that he sees women as a tool to be used for self-satisfaction. Sex to him is something he GETS not a relationship he HAS.

Lefty said:

 Maturity means never having to eat junk food (if you don't want to).

A reader named Mary responds to Lefty's overeating metaphor:

Binge-eating and excessive lusting are not necessarily signs of immaturity, as Lefty suggests. Compulsive behavior of any type is more complex than this... these aren't just bad habits, these are responses to deeper emotional issues. Before you deal with the symptom (ogling the women, etc) you must deal with the problem. What drives Lefty's sister to eat? Feelings of insecurity or low self-esteem? Why does the writer often fantasize about other women? Fear of commitment? Changing behavior patterns won't happen overnight.
