Lets End the Porn Industry by SionnaDehr Lets End the Porn Industry by SionnaDehr
The link to the article of the study conducted by Britain: www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/art…

Because, honestly, they argued their point superbly, I'm going to link to the points that jumped out at me the most.
"When you interview young women about their experiences of sex, you see an increased level of violence: rough, violent sex."
'Pornography is sexually traumatising an entire generation of boys.'
"If porn does have the insidious power to be addictive, then letting our children consume it freely via the internet is like leaving heroin lying around the house, or handing out vodka at the school gates.
And this toxic effect is filtering down directly into young girls' lives." -and that is scary.
"'Every bit of spare time I have is spent watching porn,' he says. 'It is extreme. I can't hold down a relationship for longer than three weeks. I want porn sex with real girls, but sex with them just isn't as good as the porn.'" -so it does ruin relationships... hmm, I am quite certain that it ruined one of mine (mostly because I wouldn't have sex).
"When I asked the children if there were parental controls on the internet at home, they all said no, their parents trusted them. They all admitted their parents had no idea what they were watching, and would be shocked if they did know." -and this is the article I intend to print out, bind into a booklet, and save for my future kids (or for the use of friends and family members in the same situation) for when they complain to me about not trusting them enough. I'll even highlight the quote.
"'You're watching bestiality?' I asked. 'That's illegal. Where are you getting this stuff from?' 'Facebook,' the boy said. 'It just pops up whether you want it or not, sometimes via advertisements. You don't have any control over it.'" - this makes me want to go yell at Facebook's CEO for allowing certain pages to not follow their own damn guidelines.
"It seemed as if the children's entire expectation of sex had been defined by what they see in online porn. The conversation was horrifying enough, yet there was worse to come."

And this, my friends, is what's teaching our kids about romantic sex. Pornography, a ruiner of relationships and a grotesque distortion of what love+sex actually equals. Thankfully, I have not had that distortion and actually know the difference, but that was back when the internet was relatively tame. What about now when the web has expanded and the porn industry has become sneakier? What about now, when music is so overly sexualized that when young adults listen to Nightwish songs concerning love and romance they don't even understand the wonderfully beautiful allegorical wording Tuomas weaves into his lyrics to describe the lover's first time or why the Nightingale sings? What about now, when children don't even understand the wording used in the Song of Solomon, a perfect illustration of sex and love working together equally?

If this is the future of the human race than I want nothing to do with it.

*sigh*
What's sad is the fact that I'm probably going to get more angry disagreements to this than resounding accords of approval all because people are so distorted and brainwashed that they can't see the damage done to them even if its staring them in the face.

www.socialcostsofpornography.c… -the person who wrote this needs a medal and also logically, accurately, and factually refutes everyone's opinion of "porn doesn't actually hurt you". Uh no. Porn hurts you, especially when one watches it excessively. What makes it worse is that, with the internet, we don't always get a choice in what we watch if we don't have all of the proper filters on.

This is stupid.
Also, here's a good article that shows why porn it's self isn't the problem. It's YOU.
www.psychologytoday.com/blog/w…

Also if you keep scaring people in their lives who saw porn as a child, then aren't you promoting child abuse? Scaring them for seeing something?
I may have saw porn when I was little, but it didn't harm me. Did it somehow effect my personality? Perhaps, but is that harmful?
If I was told that I should feel bad, that probably wouldn't be good.

Plus what IS harmful is your agenda that promotes censorship and trying to promote 'overly emotional' thoughts against it and trying to taboo it.

Your the one that's biased and wrong. The article shows that it's not doing that to ALL people.
Other porn stuff didn't do that, so it's very biased and idiotic to say "porn will lead to that" when it doesn't.

It's really the problem of the people, not the porn it's self.
If I was watching porn and someone saw me and freaked out, is it the porn? No, it's the person who can't learn to respect something within his rights to watch usual legal porn.

No I'm not. You are wrong. I have seen first hand what pornography has done to families as well as turn men into sex addicts. It does work. I have seen the damage it has done, don't tell me that it doesn't work.

No one can control it, you mark my words.

It's like you don't get it. I'm not saying some people had issues with porn. But what I'm saying is that not everyone did, and that it depends on the responsibility, not the porn it's self.
Plus, I've seen fictional porn (E.g. Rule 34). A lot of people who is into that had barely ruined anything. Plus studies shown that enjoying porn it's self can be healthy for someone.
If porn didn't exist, more problems would rise such as rape.

People who has bigotry feelings toward someone who likes porn can. And for liking it, of course not. Well kinda and kinda similar to how you can't control being attracted to someone.. (Porn is more of a simulation)

So you think that book knowledge is superior to actual experience about the problem? How arrogant are you? The studies about improvement of health with pornography are all lies. Studies have also shown that many have suffered erectile dysfunction after pornography and there is nothing healthy about that. It's obvious that if you constantly watch it, your brain becomes less effective. www.telegraph.co.uk/news/scien…

There is no real evidence that it "damages" the brain it's self. There was one about it effecting it, but then people shown that other stuff (e.g. Taxi driving) can as well.
If you were not ignorant you would realize that NOT everyone suffered from porn. I've seen lot's of Rule 34 when browsing and I didn't get effected in a bad way.
The news? That's not real science. It's biased. It's claiming that if a brain is effected then BOOM, it's "bad" but that's extremely BS. Like I said, main activities causes brain effects, but that doesn't mean it's "damaging" it.

If we ended porn, including all the harmless drawings, then more rape is going to happen too.
www.slate.com/articles/arts/ev…

EVEN if it was harmful, censoring it violates rights still.

Also I do think addiction to porn is not very healthy, but there is moderation.
If you say "Porn hurts relationships because porn is a focus away from real" then that's not a good answer.
Why? Because the problem is not porn, it's the wrong time. It's no different than you being distracted by work when you could of had a relationship. Does that make work harmful? No.

Yes there is. I bring you proof and you deny it. I suspect you are probably a womanizer. It is real science as it is based on science. Plus we wouldn't have many of these problems if it wasn't for the sexual revolution. Don't you people ever learn from history?

I would rather have my child see porn than gore tbh. 

When I was a kid, I came across porn, and it didn't really affect me. But when I saw this really gory picture, I was traumatized.

LOL
Porn should have an AGE LIMIT. which it does; 18 and up.
I'd say parents should supervise their kids more. 
Also it doesn't hurt you. It helps you get off or teach you a few new tricks you could bring into the bedroom.
It helps couples out that approach porn as something both educational and to get off on together.

I'm gonna be honest.......I was affected by pornography. I can't even remember how old I was, but I was in about 2nd/3rd grade, on the computer, found a game, played it. I didn't know what it was. Hell, I didn't even understand it! I got kind of addicted because I thought the games were funny and adorable. (I know it sounds weird, but really didn't know....)

I look back on it, I feel like smashing my head open, ripping out those awful memories, and sewing my head back closed.
The internet is messed up.....

Porn can be harmful just like anything else in the world if done in excess. :shrug:

I'm personally not a fan of it (beyond watching some ooooold stuff from the '70s and '80s in college with friends because the old stuff is so hokey and stupid it's hilarious!), but I know couples who watch it together without it being harmful. Not all porn is violent, either... just like with many things, it's different strokes for different folks. But I digress...

Yes, porn IS harmful to children. The answer isn't to censor the internet for everybody in the world, though. The answer is PARENT YOUR CHILDREN. Monitor what they look at on the net. It isn't that difficult. Parents are just too lazy to bother with it, so they want society to be kid friendly instead. It's ridiculous.

I agree with you, but I think we DO need to censor certain cites because it CAN be the Internets fault! Hell, when things as innocent as My Little Pony leads me to hardcore porn of them, then its not the parents fault..I'm not saying that the Internet should'nt be 100% 'kiddy friendly'' I'm just saying that companies shouldn't act that just because its adult dosen;t mean it should be 100% adult..I mean just look at the article in the description! It says that a boy found bestiality through THE ADVERTISEMENTS..

Also, most of not all porn is harmful because it rewires the brain and never portrays sexual relationships lovingly or accurately..If you want more proof on how its bad then look up 'Fight The New Drug!' on Facebook..They bring lots of facts and statistics on why porn is harmful..

And also to monitor what your kid watches is difficult..With 'private' settings kids can easily look up messed up things without them even knowing and parents have this thing called..A job..And...A life..So they can't watch what they do ALL the time..

Thanks..Your at least way better then the other person I'm currently arguing with..He won't even see my view point, even though I actually present articles instead of pulling facts out of my ass..

He even said that porn addiction was a myth..Oh god..

Also, I can understand being defensive..Porn makes the brain release dopamine and can become addictive, so it may be hard for the brain to process it being 'wrong' or to change opinions so easily..Its like the 1950s with smoking, it took us DECADES to convince the masses that smoking was bad..

Ah, I know that feeling. That's nice to present evidence, it is very annoying when people just deny facts or use only their emotions and opinions to defend their point. Some people just struggle to change their mindset. I was kind of like that when I made that comment, it was super hard for me to admit I was wrong or others had better points than myself at times.
And denying porn addictions is just pure ignorance, or he is trolling you. To be honest he doesn't sound worth debating if he won't listen and look at your evidence.

I personally don't really see anything wrong with porn now as long as you keep it to yourself, and  you're not harassing or violating others' privacy. And obviously you need help if you have an addiction to it or if porn is causing you to act weird.

Then I really just thought it was fine no matter what. I don't really know why I thought that to be honest.

And I actually don't watch porn, I'm asexual. I don't really have a problem with a lot of things as long as it isn't causing or could cause serious problems. And I haven't really seen any evidence yet to prove that casual or occasional porn can cause problems socially or in anything else.

By the way, what is your exact stance on the matter? Do you think porn shouldn't be used at all, or are you kind of like me, or other?
