This is troubling. I find teens are more open about talking about sex with the opposite sex. I'm sure you know back in our day, boys wouldn't think about talking about sex with girls. It would be a turn-off and the girls would consider you an a$$hole. You would never hear girls using the F-bomb, especially around guys. If they did, guys would consider them trashy.

Back then, there was much more respect for women. Now you can't tell whose being raunchy anymore. The girls swear sometimes more than the guys, talk openly about sex with the boys and are just as rude! It's definitely a new day. I'm a guy, and I\m astonished what comes out of young girls mouths!

I agree, when boys no longer respect women and look at them just as sex objects and girls no longer have respect for themselves, it's only a recipe for promiscuity and an increase in date rape. Easy access to porn will only influence young minds to engage and experiment with sex at a much younger age.

Go back through my posts.

I'll give you time.

Look very, very carefully.

Where, pray tell, have I said BAN, BAN, BAN ...?

Are you sure this isn't just a product of your fevered imagination?

All right. I've had some very good, very satisfying sex in my life, but it sure wasn't porn-style sex.

If that's what you see before it's what you actually experience, what are you expecting? What is your ideal for sex?

That's my point. Not only that but both a young girls and a young boys see porn stars, what kind of body image does that develop on top of the unrealistic stuff they already see in the other mags and on TV?

I guess my point is going over your head, so let me rephrase in a manner that you might understand......

I know you are and advocate of the 2nd amendment as am I, right?

So how is this argument about porn being the bad guy any different than the progs using guns as the bad guy to revoke the 2nd?

I'm saying that when you watch porn and it's your education on sex, it can build unrealistic portrayals of what sex is and should be between people similar to how you can get unrealistic ideas of what the gold standard of feminine beauty is from only looking at fashion mags full of skinny supermodels.

And I don't think it's healthy to let children get their hands on that before they are ready to understand the totality of it - that sex between people is more than what you see in a porno on several levels (or at least it should be), and they should at the same time both expect it to be more and not expect it to be the same as what they see when they engage in their own encounters.

I similarly don't allow my young child to watch Rated R movies, either. He's simply too young to mentally process all of what he sees in manner that can separate reality from fantasy.

Is there something wrong from exercising parental control?

And I would also point out that there is no actual basic right to porn. You don't have a right to anything that would impose an obligation on others in order for you to have it. Technically, porn would since you would need at least one other to produce it.

Agreeing with you and also adding that even manga and anime and not just live humans are subject to pornography censorship laws in Japan as well.

Porn causes rape? I believe rape has been going on long before we had technology. Although I wish that porn had never been inserted into our society, I just don't see the connection. If I were to get an somewhat accurate number to what future crime stats might be, I would look at who commits most rapes now, what population increases may be, and do the math.

Are we going to see more children growing up looking at the oppersite sex as just sex objects and nothing more, or even worse things? - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...

Surprisingly few studies have linked the availability of porn in any society with actual associated antisocial behaviors or sex crimes in particular. None have found a causal relationship and very few have even found one of positive correlation.





In fact, many studies show the availability of pornography appears to reduce the rate of sex crimes:





Interestingly, whereas the number of sex-related crimes fell significantly after 1989, the number of other societal crimes -- murder, assault, and robbery -- rose significantly.


Source

So in answer to your question....NO.

If the trend holds....incidence of sex crimes will continue to drop...while violent crimes such as the ones mentioned in the article will continue to increase.




There was a story about a month ago in the uk about a boy who watched porn round his mates house. Went home and rapped his sister. He said he just wanted to try it.


In this case....this boy was likely messed up long before he watched porn at his friends house. Some people are just simply put....CRAZY.

Sure.
Easy to view porn website is a reason ,but the main reason is divorce rate rising.Many of parents ignore their kids and don't want to educate them "right" values.

This is like saying during mid 90's to early 2000's there were a surge of high school gangs(in upper cities). I remember my mom was worried i will be dragged into one.. but i never joined a gang or even got into a single fight in high school.

Now a days highschool gangs are barely seen.. unless u go to some ghetto neighborhood.

Tho i agree porn is easily available and it does put unrealistic desires in a person's head which does not match with reality... but i highly doubt it is going to make them a predator... it will probably make them more reclusive and stay at home.

Kids with no social life is the future.

I think perhaps a slight dip may end up happening as people become desensitized to its taboo mindset..just another thing to do. I however do think rate of promiscuous behavior may rise and be less cared about overall by society. the "sloot" of yesterday will simply be shrugged off. Crimes themselves, well, as we go on with society, more and more things are becoming sex crimes, but I think that may eventually be corrected and dialed back. right now we have sex offender witch hunts, where things like public exposure (lemme see your bewbz) gets you on the list and other 3rd degree(low level) felony type things. Political panic stroking...good for fear mongering.

I am more worried about meaningful relationships being established due to the 12 second attention span of today. Pleasure is nice, but meanful relationships can fill a hole that you didn't even know was there until you are in one. This is a concern based in people rewiring their brains from social media and constant technological interruptions that may cripple emotional growth between people.
