The people who perform in porn either enjoy it or can't think of anything better to do with their lives. I vote for giving everyone control over his or her own life. That means giving them the freedom to make bad choices, too. I don't care for anyone's righteous crusade against porn because it isn't about porn. It's about freedom.

I'm not having you tell me what I should or shouldn't like, in regards to porn. I'm pretty much a strict rationalist where it counts, but I want my sex to be all about abandon, do you understand? The irrational deserves its own room, and I'd rather that be the bedroom than the boardroom or the classroom.

Porn is a life choice for both the actor and the consumer.

Money, drugs or whatever the actor wants is supplied depending. A contract is signed and there is a script to follow. Do this here, and then do this there. It's a staged movie.

Haven't you ever done something or had something done to you sexually that was uncomfortable?

Don't lie about that question. Everybody has had somebody say 'no' and this is the truth.

Many Porn actors enjoy their work. Lots of money and glorification in different ways..... c'mon.


Does this mean that we shouldn't glorify Olympic Athletes? They train long and painful hours for that one moment of satisfaction (winning and a gold medal)???

Do you enjoy your job?

The porn industry is just an R rated version of the unsexual world.

Wow...couldn't have said it better and I couldn't agree more. It's about time we let ourselves make mistakes in public eye once in a while. Afterall, that's how we learn is it not?

And as you said, it's not right to let someone else decide whether or not you can view porn

Well said

Sure, there are plenty of fat "porn stars" or at least plenty of pictures of fat naked chicks doing all sorts of things that some people must like. To each his own.

First of all, not everybody likes traditional (hardcore) porn. There's a lot of fetishes! Some people get off on the craziest things imagineable. Real people being involved is never a requirement. So you can't box everyone in if you want to say that ALL hardcore porn is bad. If you want to repress sexual play, tough luck! It's impossible to stop it without changing our genes or something. YOu'll have to outlaw a lot of things you never even knew could arouse people. Just thinking about it boggles the mind.

Every industry exploits. Every single one. They all abuse the rules and have crossed the line. When the porn industry crosses the line then prosecute them. We need people to be watchdogs in every industry. We need unions and government to help organize this activity so people aren't divided and conquered by more centralized and powerful entities.

But to be anti-porn? This is no different than the people exploiting hte current economic circumstances to destroy unions. Some people who're anti-porn will find instances where a line was crossed and use this as justification to destroy porn. But the rule of law will win, ultimately. What is fair and right and natural will win. I really do feel that so long as people are respected and the law is followed that selling sex stuff is fine and this goes for any good or service in the economy.

Jeeeeeez, it's not like women and men in the sex industry don't choose to be there!!! If people didn't watch porn, porn stars would be out of work & quite possibly revert to prostitution which is certainly more detremental & degrading than porn in my eyes....

If i was paying my drug addiction by having rough sex, there would be no one to blame but myself.

The original argument for this thread is utterly ridiculous. Op, you really need to grow up and mature a little, open your eyes, welcome to the 21st century. I've heard all sorts of stuff about how horrid porn is and how all the poor actors and actresses are all abused and taken advantage of.

Listen, it comes down to this:

If people didn't want it they wouldn't be selling it!!

Some people need to get over themselves

Ok I can say this once. I went out on two dates with a pornstar from one of those barely legal movies. I met her at a not nice place. She didn't seem abused, or cried or said help me get out of this situation, she talked about some scenes she did and such and seemed pretty happy about it.

Other than that I know there is abuse that goes on in the sex industry, this is not new, some have to do it because of the money. Look at prostitution, look how much abuse goes there.

Big industry porn is horrible! Back in the day it might have been cool if it was your easiest medium to view material. Now with the internet you can watch actual people doing it and sharing their uploaded clips because that's what they BOTH enjoy.
I say, let Hollywood style porn and production companies become a thing of the past. Fake (enhanced) body parts, bad acting (why would someone care about the plot in a porno), and the mere fact that these women are most likely faking to get their paycheck is what makes big industry porn boring. Forget the fact that some of the DVD's cost mucho moneys. Amateur porn is where its at people... User submissions from two (or more) totally willing adults - free in most cases. Why would anyone ever waste their time or money on an internet pay site or DVD. Ive been saying this since the dawn of the internet.

Porn is what you make of it, and a lot of it comes down to "chicken or the egg" sort of questions. I was in two porno films myself as a young man, and went on to work in sales and distribution for a number of years. There is certainly a dark side to it, but there is also a righteous side too. For one thing, it holds the frontier of freedom of expression back against the tide of despotism.

If you are worried about the men and women who are willing "victims" of the industry, then ask yourself this. What would they be resorting to if they didn't have the porn industry? They would be working back rooms at seedy strip clubs and walking the streets. Far more dangerous and degrading, and for less money. The problem is not the porn, but the socio-economic conditions which drive people into the industry who otherwise would not be there. Don't go putting the cart in front of the horse. Keep in mind too, that many of the performers are not victims at all, and actually do enjoy the life.

As far pornography from a "users" standpoint, That is really none of anyone elses business why I would choose to view porn, or who I choose to view it with. And it has nothing to do with the choices or the path that led the performers to my screen.
