Wasn't Drunk, the 'moderator' in China? Where's he at? We could use some input from him, however simple.

if you outlaw porn , then only outlaws will have porn


in an ideal world, adults would be free to choose to view it if so desired, with all of the actresses over 21 and working their way through college....

The human race is indeed strange. It's ok to look at nude people in your bedroom but heaven forbid if you should see a nude person on your pc in your bedroom. Obviously the top officials in China want to exercise control over the population. Limit sex, number of kids, and their rights of what they can see and do. The scary part is that I believe a few people in the US want to imitate China.

I saw some thousand year old clay figures from China, on top they look like a sitting Bhudda, flip them over and in a concave 'hidden' bottom is a graphic portrayal of a couple involved in intercourse. Porn has been around as long as we have been able to draw, paint or sculpt, it isn't likely to go away because of legislation. China, and pretty much every other religon or government has been trying to do away with it for at least that long.
Wait a minute... YOU MEAN THERE'S PORN ON THE NET?!!?!??!

Cool, more for us! (too bad about the China thing... I'm partial to Asian girls.)

The part about war reminds me of something George Carlin pointed out- whenever we don't like something we declare war on it. It's the only symbolism we have for opposing something. If followed to its logical conclusion, the American mindset demands that a war be fought over ever disagreement. It's really a cultural weakness, not because we really are THAT militant, but because we do think in language, and the quality of thought is therefore affected by the quality of language. If our language is heavy on war, so will be our thoughts, and thus theoretically so will be our actions. On average America does fight a war every 20-30 years, so it may be true- we may be a somewhat warlike culture.

One last point, probably not true but I want to ask. Has anybody else heard that the entomolgy(spelling?) of the arabic word for war is "the desire for more cows"? It has the ring of an urban legend, but if it was true... well god what would that say about their culture right?

This does'nt surprise me abit,afterall even the U.S. has made it their goal to fight the industry,speciffically speaking the Republicans..So when you mention China taking their own steps to ensure their society's integrity and moral standards it really does'nt mean that they are the only ones waging the war..there has been alot of research in the field of possible harm to young people & adults too for that matter.

But besides that in my opinion the trade of porn on the internet is a buggering scam,think about it for a minute yourself.Why not buy or rent a DVD,or even go to a prostitute,it's damn cheaper than watching a live display.At an avrage cost of 5Euros a minute it's absolutely mad for anyone to bother with it in the first place,unless you're in an institution or jail and have access to a computer there's not much point,mind you if you could pay for the service in jail or anywhere else you can easily besides reserving your own 'bitch' you can get a phone and dial "bitch for hire"...
The most annoying thing with these sites is that they don't only rape your wallet but your computer too.
Once you visit such sites you have just gotten yourself tagged big time...they basically implant themselves deep in your registry and you'll recieve emails that even use a friends name and even your style of writing.I had joined once a club together with my girlfriend to make contact with other couples or females..I recieved an email once that had my cousins name on it on the sender and also saying Hi bro I met mark last night he gave me this pill,turned out to be a stimulating pill that kept him & his girlfriend busy till the next day..I was confused but when I clicked on the name of the pill a whole site appeared advertising their product...I ran a spybot search and what I found inbeded in my computer got me freakin mad....never again did I visit another site..end of story !!
the email was not from the club...
Politics On Porn in The Digital Age...
Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, under Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, the federal government went on the offensive against pornography. Then came a Clinton administration that had different priorities. To what extent did the new political environment permit the explosive growth of the porn industry during the 1990s? And how much was due to technological and cultural forces beyond any administration's control? This is where the politics of porn gets complicated.

The Rise of the Anti-Porn Movement..
Federal campaigns against the porn industry are a relatively recent innovation -- largely because the current incarnation of the porn industry is itself a recent innovation. Forty years ago, the porn industry was effectively invisible. A demimonde of grainy stag films and sleazy peep shows, porn was ghettoized in red-light districts, produced by a handful of operators, and patronized mostly by proverbial dirty old men.

Why 21? The legal age to do pornography is 18. And why do they have to work their way through college? Thats the excuse for nearly every stripper I've managed to come in contact with.
