comment Is this sentence structure correct? I catch myself using this structure a lot
It isn't unexceptionable; it's clumsy and the imagery is inaccurate. True, there are no grammar problems (or, as Jasper Locke wrote, “nothing wrong with the structure”).

comment Last (count) entries
Both of the rewrites you suggest are verbose and somewhat roundabout, and thus end up less clear than the original form.

comment Is it correct to say “It is pathetic to see some people only see the lust side of a girl”?
The suggested rewrite is badly formed. Rather absurdly, it says people see a certain photo as an object of lust, rather than saying a certain girl is an object of lust. Also, saying the girl “has a lustful side” is clumsy rather than natural. It is more natural to say she is lusty or sensual in some ways.

How do you get the concept of an insulted party in that sentence?

comment a single decisive word for a “positive result”
In my reading of the two phrases, “fruits and repercussions” refers to the whole phrase “prevalence of technology”; “benefits and drawbacks” does not, but only to prevalence itself. That is, the former emphasizes technology as the subject, while the latter does not.

@Kris, but perhaps you are thinking of a different Silvia.

comment What would be a valid replacement of “as”?
You seem to be using punctive to mean at a point in time, vs its OED1 def., “Making straight for a point”. Note, onelook and wordnet don't find punctive in the several dozen dictionaries they search.
