It can damage other people. If a husband starts demanding from his wife what he sees in porn, and his wife doesn't comply, it can damage their marriage, and her self esteem.

I think most couples use porn as a means of 'getting into the mood'.
Of course, as with everything in life, there are the exceptions to the rule.
I think you're implying that every husband will want to demand tying up the wife in his personal sex dungeon downstairs in the basement. I don't think that's realistic. And the Jeffrey Dahmers of this world will be up to what they do with or without the aid of soft and hardcore movies. You can hardly blame Playboy magazine for that one...

Ever heard of the saying "Different strokes for different folks"?

For every fetish portrayed in pornography there are people who actually enjoy that behaviour which means that there are willing participants to participate in the portrayal either for reasons of money or sexual gratification.

It seems a little naive to criticize the porn industry for being degrading when there are a significant number of people who enjoy degradation and who is to say that a minimum wage job isn't degrading? I bet there aren't too many people who 'get off' on stacking supermarket shelves for ten bucks an hour.

Basically what I am saying is that porn exists because there is a demand for it.

If you don't like it, and I admit that some of it disgusts me, then don't look at it! It doesn't have to be a part of your life if you choose otherwise but know thast your individual choice doesn't put you in a very strong position to understand, criticize or attempt to impede the choices of others.

BINGO.
I think that just about hits the nail right on the head.

So if a man watches porn with his wife and demands these actions, it's porn's fault?

That's a crock

This is just more religious bull# trying to get you to feel guilty for watching porn. Not one group that's against it is non religious. Get it threw your head, your not going to change people just because you believe its wrong. Its not wrong, if you do not like it shut up about it. You know i should start a thread about how since the evolution of the internet and porn through the last 15 years saw a drop in rape. This means porn is good. Yes child porn is horrible and you go to jail if you watch it, no need to further destroy our youth. All other porn whether disgusting or sexy is ok because at least someone likes it and you are scum to want to take joy away from people. Not to mention jobs and a billion dollar industry that feeds our dieing economy. I just gotta know what is it off you if someone does this in the privacy of their home? Use your time better do something that doesn't impede our freedom.

Porn’s awesome! What else can I say about it? Just bloody fantastic. THANK YOU INTERNET! I mean without internet porn there’d be no 2 girls 1 cup! One of the greatest things to have ever been conjured up by lesbians. GO SCAT!!

Yep... porn's as wholesome as whole wheat. There we have it. It's been uttered. And anybody who thinks otherwise must be a cornflake.

With regards to the original post .

You seem to base most of your arguments on conditions and enjoyment of professionals in said industry.

I find it hard to accept this.. are you saying that if conditions were correct then porn would be acceptable?

Yes its messy , and people are unhappy and exploited in the industry .. strangely tho this is the case in Most industries , someone always gets the short end of the stick somewhere.


Now if you're saying that Porn is morally wrong.... i will draw your attention to the first ever art on our planet , Naked people in cave paintings..

Porn and love is a different thing .. that's exactly why no one looks at the faces .. that's not what they are their to see........

Quite right. I'm sure there is always someone somewhere getting the short end of the stick or exploited. Whether you're an underpaid and overworked McDonald's employee or a non-unionized minimum wage farm worker that is exposed to toxic pesticides on a daily basis or whether someone is in porn. A legitimate porn model probably has a better quality of life (financially at least) than the former examples.
I think it's also important to distinguish between 'love' and 'sex'. Sex is a biological function whereas love is wholly emotional. The two can compliment each other but usually only for so long. Most people who've been married for 20 odd years say that either one or the other or both are waning. The teenage puppy love years will pass. That's just the way it is.
Now I'm not suggesting that everybody drop out of college to become porn actors and hopefully get awarded a Porn Oscar. I'm not even saying it should be a 'profession'. But if it's done by some it's none of my business but theirs.

Alright. Alright. So, porn is great and all that.

If your teen aged daughter comes home crying one night, with bruises, and a black eye, and tells you she has been gang raped, I want you to look her in the eye and tell her:

"Some people like sex that way. They are only living an alternative lifestyle. Even though they were hitting you, they actually like you a lot."


Hey, don't get mad, those guys were just living out their rape fantasy. Can these guys help it she didn't want it to be that way? Your daughter should have known what was in store for her at that party.

Hey, don't get mad at those guys who raped your daughter. After all, they were living out their rape fantasies. Nothing wrong with that, right? She should have known what was coming when she stayed at that party.

Disclaimer: I'm a theist but not of the Abrahamic faiths. I have minor biblical scholar and scriptural skills. Also I am not a scientific/legal or medical expert in any field. Beware of my Contagious Memes! & watch out that you don't get cut on my Occams razor.All of this is my personal conjecture and should not be considered the absolute or most definitive state of things as they really are. Use this information at your own risk! I accept no liability if your ideology comes crashing down around you with accompanying consequences!

Explanation: It seems to me that you are clearly confusing Porn (made legally and by consenting adults and also bought and watched legally by consenting adults and taxed legally by governments) and Rape which has no Consent (i.e. Consent = the ability, right and legal requirement to make a legally permissible agreement to have sexual relations between 2 or more people before sexual relations commence). If any of my female or male relatives of friends was raped by some sicko, regardless of whether he/she/they were driven by porn based fantasies then I would want them punished to the full extent of the law possible, but I'm not going to blame the porn...I'm going to blame him/her/them for not getting their victims consent 1st!!!

Personal Disclosure: If the OP wanted to go on about rape then I wonder why they didn't make this clear in the Topic?
But since it clearly states its about porn and where I live porn is a vital legal industry and is highly regulated and as such I currently see and have no problems with it at all which seems in concurrence with 66.6+% of posters to this thread.

P.S. with that kind of thinking you might just be promoting ignorance...Don't take my word for though as I'm only in the majority of respectful and legal porn users that appear to have graced this thread. I state unreservedly that
I DON'T recommend, endorse, promote or accept any form of Illegal Porn at any time or any where for any reason whatsoever!

Uh I think you missed the point mate.

We were talking about the porn industry, not rape.

If CONSENTING adults choose to participate in degrading acts then what is the problem?

Where to you make the astonding logical leap that porn is responsible for rape?

I think rape and general human brutality predate pornography by a considerable length of time and therefore it can hardly be said that porn, a comparitively recent pastime in the evolution of mankind, is responsible for acts of human sexual; criminality!

Your argument comes off as being a knee-jerk emotional response which really puts the horse before the cart.

So hey does this mean i can do the same to you or your wife or sister. By your backward ass logic i guess the thousands of rape cases every month are justified because they can invade the rights of others for their own satisfaction? This is what you people do to our freedoms but no you don't see anything wrong with that. This kind of law has been there for so long unquestioned because it works. This has nothing to do with FAKE movies depicting rape or other illegal acts that would otherwise be illegal if they were real, because they are willing. Go bitch about something important.

Ok, I've changed my mind again.

Porn is fine. Who cares.

Feel sorry for the people that get caught in it to pay the bills, but they could've worked somewhere else.

Let's all move on!

(And watch porn!)

Are you sure you weren't just busted by a significant other, and now doing the 12 step "porn addict" thing?
Sounds a lot like "Taking Inventory" or such.

But seriously, porn is everywhere--can you even manage to click on 3 random links and not come across something that would make a puritan blush?
Or even get you arrested in some countries.

I doubt even the most pure avoid following an occasional link, if it tweaks their fancy, and I am sure that the most desperate spend all day searching for their favorite fetish.

So does the movie "Independance Day" imply an open invitation to aliens to come to our planet and start fragging our cities then?

I didn't even read this thread except the op first post, bottom line is that nobody put's a gun to the actor's head and makes them perform. They do it by choice and for the money stop feeling sorry for these people and find something more worthwile to attack.
