Sorry but i dont agree, porn is no more to blame and i think in most cases less to blame than some other media that younger ppl are exsposed to. Example, how many kids/teens when asked want to be like there "hero" raper, have lots of money, drive fast cars, have girls all over them, deal drugs and pop a cap in the ass of anyone that disses them..
or
Be like some bad ass cop or soldier they see in the movies, who can kill dozens of ppl in a mater of minits.

im pritty sure you wont find many kids that want to be like jenna jamason...

and the reason they do it isnt because they are forced into it or are drug dependant, its because they can get paid £1000s for a few hrs work, that needs no quolifications other than a half decent looking body

Like it said in an old army manual: Do not show porn to your fellow soldiers. Some of them can be so aroused by it that they become uncontrollable.
There are normal people, when shown porn, they become monsters. This is very rare. It is one of the reasons we, as a society, frown on porn.

Allow me to share with you something that happened at my school this past week. I am a teacher. A new 6th grade boy came to us about one month ago from another school in the same corporation. He is 11 years old. In the course of this week, he has said sexually explicit things to six different girls, grabbed their breasts, licked his lips and said: "mmm....hey baby"........ As girls walk past him he turns around and stares at their bottoms and makes more lurid comments. The girls involved are all A students, the cream of the crop, if you will, in the sixth grade. These girls entered the principal's office in tears. They decided, along with their homeroom teacher, that they had had enough. The gilrs served as witnesses for each other, along with what they saw happen to other girls.

I wonder just what this boy sees at home. I shudder to think, actually. He has been suspended and there will be an emergency meeting to have him expelled. Now, will he just go onto a different school? Will he be charged with harassment? That depends on the parents. Some may press charges and they need to do this. It was also learned that this boy has been in several schools and this makes me wonder if it is for the same reason. If he isn't stopped, he will continue and become a serial sex offender.

Pornography is neither good nor bad. Just like a gun or a Bible are neither good or bad. Pornography can be very useful in a number of ways. How do young people learn the mechanics of sex? Most likely not from their parents. So pornography serves an very important educational function. It may also help young people recognize and define their own sexuality. Some studies have argued that pornography keeps the most dangerous deviants safely at home, rather than prowling the streets looking for victims.

The same thing can be said for anything that creates stimulation. It's what people do with it that matters. Some people are stimulated mentally and even physically by the Bible. They're driven to do all kinds of things as a result. It could be bake cookies, or collect clothing for the poor. It could be to lock themselves away and beat themselves with whips. Or it could be to go to the local gay bar and bash somebody's head in.

Pornography, the Bible, a gun, whatever. It's people and their crazy ways who are dangerous.


Everything this guy said times a million, you hit spot on with my feelings in a number of topics all in one post.


OT: I'll add more for myself, no its not bad at all those people saying rape has gone up can never back it up with numbers or facts. As for addiction well humans are additive creatures and some more additive than others. I myself come from a family of alcoholics and drug addicts, oh and smokers, we hit the coffee pretty hard to. Though we all look amazingly young so thats a plus I guess.

Where was I? Oh addiction, if Joe schmo 3# tm wasn't getting his rocks off to big nips videos he might be into drugs or alcohol, or addicted to jogging. The point is we shouldn't be blaming the substance that Joe uses, but rather treat and teach Joe on how to responsibly use such substances.

I have only read through some of this but I find your approach towards some of the people quite rude.

Chill out, watch some porn.

Keeps them off the streets? So them sitting off in their rooms, masturbating is a good alternative to being outside?

To a minor extent and in moderation, yes.

Why not? Masturbation, in moderation, is healthy for the body too.

Your confusing porn with rape. Rape is an act of violence. Porn is good clean sex.

Doesn't matter what the porn is, it doesn't increase violence. Only violent acts increase violence.


Uhh..no, not really. I think you didn't read enough of it. The point of the topic is to point out that pornography is unhealthy and is very influential on our only world.


Well maybe not interchanging them per se. However you are trying to show a correlation between sexual violence and viewing porn.

And rape statistics have even gone up since then.


Proof please.

That's the point...that porn could be encouraging it.


You don't have a point until you can prove that there is a correlation between an societal increase in sexual violence and an increase in access to pornography, (I mean a peer reviewed study backed by an objective source, preferably more than one); and then you still have the little dilemma of proving that there is a cause and effect interaction there, which is even more difficult. Even you have had to use the words "could be encouraging it."

Good luck with that.

I want your opinions, but I also want you to know what it is that I posted.


Fair enough, and I can see why some people make the leap to Porn = Sexual Violence, but you are also presenting nothing more than assumptions, supposition, and opinion and trying to pass if off as fact, which rather negates your "point".

porn is like smack, first time is great and after that you're chasing the dragon. you start at playboy and before you know it you're watching midgets and barnyard animals. so yeah, it's probably bad.

I agree with the OP in this case.

Teenagers that grow up learning about sex from porn and not their parents or by instinct, end up being really bad sexual partners. Sex is supposed to be about sharing yourself with someone. Not just f#cking for your own pleasure.

I believe porn makes one a selfish lover, when you sit in your room and masturbate for years before actually having sex- it's all about you...and that's what sex becomes in the end. Seems men also end up treating their gf's or wives like porn stars- "do this- do that" all these weird positions...

We practically have to re-train our boyfriends these days with regards to sex, or love making.

My personal opinion is that you're using misleading statistics and data to come to a conclusion that is biased.

You suggest that you don't have a problem with people having the freedom to act as they wish when it comes to adult media, and then you suggest that "not all" porn viewers are rapists?

How about "hardly any", or how about considering how many people view adult media and DON'T attack other people?

It's clear from the language you use that you do indeed have a problem with the freedoms of others. There are several instances in your post where you equate adults who enjoy adult media to rapists, and this smacks of the stereotypical religious extremist. I could be wrong, but I've seen the same flawed and inflammatory arguments and statements made by Christian extremists before, and that's how you come across to me.

As for the safety of kids, parents are responsible for the protection of their kids. It makes me seethe with anger to hear people screaming "won't somebody think of the children!!!!" and suggesting the rest of the world should restrict itself because they can't be bothered to educate their kids, monitor their internet use or employ any of the many thousands of tools there are available to prevent access.

Parents are the ones who are responsible for the raising of their child, not me, not the rest of the world. We are not parents, and we should not be expected to restrict our lives and freedom to make a lazy parent happy. These are the same people who screamed about Marilyn Manson being "responsible" for Columbine, while removing all responsibility from the parents of the kids who committed the crime for "not noticing" the stockpile of weapons the boys had access to. People actually called for censorship after that, again shifting their parental responsibilities out to everyone else.

If you don't like adult media, and you don't want your kids looking at it while they are under your roof, do the following...

1. Explain your opinion to them.
2. Do not allow them to have a computer in their room.
3. Monitor their internet access.
4. Password protect settings to filter adult media.
5. Confiscate their mobile phone or use the services available to block adult content.
6. Invest in blocking software.

You are joking, right?


Are you speaking from experience here? I'm assuming so because you haven't offered any evidence for that opinion.
Last time I checked, midgets and barnyard animals are not exactly a popular niche. You'd have thought they would be if your opinion is true, considering how many years Playboy has been going.
Where is all that midget and animal content that we must assume is everywhere?!

This whole entire topic is a forgery. The "1 in 3" has been so thoroughly debunked it is a borderline act of hatred just to repeat it. Heck the person who came up with it admitted on national TV she made it up for "dramatic effect".

Add in the OP acts like it is all common knowledge so doesn't give any corroborating facts at all. The only way US would be number 1 in rape is if you looked at prison rape of male prisoners. But I think places like Congo where rape is used as an act of terror against women, children and even men, have a higher rape percentage.

The simple fact is, the control of pornography and the control/limitation of masturbation are nothing more then an attempt to control male sexuality. It goes back to the origins of feminism as a sexual trade union in Europe. The thinking among the more chauvinistic gal's and their lap dog "men" is, if guy's are "pent up" they would be willing to do anything or some BS like that.

Also, traditionalist's and even fundamentalist's know very well how to try and use women to control men to control society. That is what this is all about: Control. With millions of young men simply walking away from relationships, the idea of marriage, heck even sex, both branches of the Matriarchy(Feminism and Traditionalism) are freaking out.

If you want to talk about poison, how about talking about the unrealistic romance novels/ literature erotica-porn and the outside of reality romance comedies permeating society. Ohh that is right, it is only "OK" to criticize and seek to "retrain" the male gender.
