If you look at his family, it's not hard to guess what that "underneath" is.


I have no idea what that means unless it is the old calumny like in Garden State that all our problems are caused by our parents behavior. Jon is a sexual narcissist and that is on him not his parents. It is on him to change not his parents who both tell him to grow up,get married and have kids. Even his father say he looks more like a man with a permanent girlfriend. He is the one resisting and refusing to change into an full adult retreating into the infantilism of porn and hook up culture.

Perhaps JB is referring to the fact that Jon's parents pressure him relelentlessly to settle down, get married, and have kids. I for one, as a 29-year-old single man, am extremely grateful my parents aren't concerned about any of that, although I know a few people who aren't as lucky. You could argue that putting that kind of pressure on your offspring is every bit as selfish as porn addiction.
