Internet Pornography a form of 'De-Population'?

Ok, maybe I had a long week and I have to much to think about.... but, I did think of something, and i have never heard it before.. and i do believe its not that 'far out' of a theory.

Anyway, everything in America (not to mention plenty of other countries) is censored in one way or another. Yet, the internet, after more then a decade, is completely uncensored... anything goes, you want to find something about anything you will find it.

There can be various reasons for this, i know that the internet is a 'very big place' to say the least and it has to be close to impossible trying to censor anything. But i have to assume various laws could have been passed to restrict internet applications from visiting any unauthorized website.

Now, with that being said... internet porn is so readily available that it is almost impossible to not come across it! And i know that there are content filters on every browser, but how many parents really know how to even set one up?

So considering that so much pornography can be available at such a small amount of time, imagine the people (primary impressionable teens) that have become addicted to it. Imagine how many people got themselves so involved in always having porn available that the thought of having a exclusive relationship is almost impossible?!?

Am I that crazy to think that this could be a form of mind control or sterilization experiment?

ive actually had similar thoughts myself i have friends that primarily look up porn internet porn has encouraged them to stay home all day and be content to not trying to have relationships ((my story is LARGELY different ha)) but yes it could be

Of course your not crazy. There are multiple stories or cases where teenagers or adults are addicted to pornography. There is a couple of British teens I heard of, that watch it all the time. It's gotten so bad that whenever they look at a girl, they imagine she's in one of "Those" Movies, To quote one of the boys.

Here's a link to a documentary.

Google Video Link

As for the mind control theory, it's highly plausible. Dumbing down the next generation of America, causing them to become so obsessed that even the thought of being with an average girl seems repulsive. Thus, "De-populating" some of the next generation.

Although It's probably not on purpose.

My God, Thank YOU! Both of you have the SAME exact thoughts I've been having recently.... WOW, my mind is honestly blown. Hexudecimal... you stole the words out of my mouth.

Seems kinda far fetched to me and I believe a lot of crazy stuff, imo internet porn is just a more available version of whats already been around for ages. Most people still prefer the real thing and since the web is world wide we are exposed to a lots of things that just could never be popular outside the web.

I really think if the powers that be wanted to implement their population control methods to an extreme level they would use other means like adding hormones or chemicals to unsuspecting products we consume and do it so stealthily noone would notice a thing.

I agree on this one... I to have had similar thoughts. I used to think along the lines of, if the body has to keep producing sperm everytime, it will eventually "run out". Therefore causing an earlier stage of sterilization during his lifetime.

On the other hand other people would like to think of it in the sense that sperm are good swimmers and they do not live for long. Therefore, newer sperm would actually be better. So by masturbating you are getting rid of the old sperm and replacing it with "fresh" ones.

So as you can see the argument can sway both ways.

When I searched it up I found a lot of benefits for it:

In 2003, an Australian research team led by Graham Giles of The Cancer Council Australia[37] concluded that frequent masturbation by males appears to help prevent the development of prostate cancer

Both sex and masturbation lower blood pressure. A small study has shown that a test group which only had intercourse experienced, as a whole, lower blood pressure in stressful situations than those who had no intercourse but had masturbated for one or more days.

More on wiki.

I read a rant once about how pornography is ruining people and actually making them impotent. And it went to say that Hugh Heffner has to watch gay porn to get an erection before he 'makes whoopie' with the bunnie of the week. I dont think the rant was implying that Hugh is gay, but that hes so over sexed he needs extremes for arousal.

hmm... thats an interesting prespective. You might be onto a theory over here.

I would tend to agree!

Its another diversion, just like television and hollywood to keep one's mind occupied and in the clouds, so as not to pay attention to what is really going on in the world.

Great Post!

The only part of George Orwell's 1984 that never really gelled for me was the Anti-Sex League, I mean when has mankind ever not gotten busy... but now that I'm seeing the popular culture so completely overwhelmed with ceaseless references to Homosexuality, Feminism, HIV, Male Incompetence, Child Empowerment, and the Un-Ending Cornucopia of Pornography whose graphic nature seems intent on continually outdoing it's own extremism, it sure seems like the Anti-Sex League is in full swing.
George Orwell was a prophet.

ive been thinking about this thread since I read it.. and although I agree with the concept - I also believe that even if this were true, the anonymous sex that has been facilitated by the use of these social networks and online dating sites makes up for the additional people that become isolated due to porno.

While internet porn may be affecting people's ability to keep exclusive relationships, by no means does it control population. You don't need an exclusive relationship to reproduce.

Our ancestors lived to around 30 years, people are reproducing now in their 50's. If anything, our ability to reproduce has increased.

If there was a significant drop in population rates, I would be concerned, but, at this point, it there doesn't seem to be any sort of sterilization conspiracy.

It's more about money, as sex sells, it pretty much runs the backbone of internet monies. The people who are addicted would probably otherwise be addicted to porn(or something else) in another fashion, to say addictive personalities. However, there's no doubt that it being so accessible does cause problems. Internet chatting as a whole even has made things more impersonal, as with net porn. It's not sterialization, rather just another form of bringing in the cash.

interesting post....which opens up a whole lot more questions than only the porn question. what are the long-term effects of internet in general? I can see many positive effects, but also a few very dark long-term effects.

The phenomenon is called "Weaponized Porn". Rense did a article on it a week or so ago. They bombard you with sex, until It basically overtakes the mind and distracts from real issues, as well as creates multiple compartmented false realitys, which are triggered in various ways .
Ive noticed people will destroy friendships as well as push people away when the finally get there hands on a computer.The funding parties manipulating key is to dimantle the family, reduce population, corrupt youth, and boggle the mind in madness. Another key is to make the men all act feminine, and the women to act mascuiline. They want to distract you ansd neautrilise you just long enough until the gates close.

Disagree. My brother is one of the 'funding' parties. He is a director and owner for one of the largest porn distribution companies in the world.. I won't name names here. He, and the others, are in it for the money, plain and simple. My parents are so proud, let me tell you.

I think the problem we see has to do with the users of porn, not the supplier. It only makes sense that internet porn would be hugely popular, primarily due to its simplicity. The shortest distance between two points is a line, or shall we say the 'path of least resistance'. People who have sexual urges, as all people do, can go online and instantly 'fix' the problem, rather than having to deal with people of any sort. It's a whole lot easier to get online and watch some porn than it is to go to a store, video theater, stripjoint, or find a partner and have real sex. I don't blame 'em, there just doing it the easy way, the lazy way. It's all about the instant gratification.

Nothing agains AP, IMO.. In the primitive society we have been programmed into , profit for evil deeds is promoted. In an enlightened society people would not take money, or create something that might get into the hands, and destroy a childs minds, or their family.
Freedom of speech is one thing, expression of Art. Destruction of the mind, and family without even blinking is another.Porn is a huge problem, its way too availible by design. Those who create it should choose again and invest in creating good with the things we have learned, to build the futures people.

i think the internet should never be censored and those of u that do probably roll over quickly when any of ur rights r taken away. at least these people r having safe sex instead of spreading disease's.

I'm against censorship of the net largely. While obviously stuff like peodophilia should be delt with and removed its obviously too big a job for most countries police (otherwise we'd have been rid of it long ago I'd have hoped.)

Porn can be addictive, a mate of mine and his brother had one of the most severe addictions I've ever seen to porn. They would endlessly download porn day and night (while at work, holiday it didn't matter...) The only problem was they were both working suck long hours theynever got time to watch it, yet still they would download it into their 'backlog'.

One afternoon while sitting sorting out their PC's I thought I'd total up exactly how long it was going to take them to watch it came to around 1 1/2 years! (thats 24 /7 by the way) If that isn't an addiction of sorts I dont know what is.

I dont count 'standard' porn as 'bad' really , if someone wants to download and watch it fine by me...personaly I dont see the atraction but maybe I'm just weird lol.

It's just like the old phrase: "Guns don't kill people, people do."

This is how I view Pornography. It's not the makers and distributors who cause the problem, it's the users who abuse it and make their life choices accordingly.
