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.psychologytoday.com/blog/i…
marriagedoc.blogspot.com/2011/…
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.

and no...
getting rid of the porn industry will NOT solve your problem.
It is very easy to tell that porn aint 100% responsible for children's behaviours...

ever seen the movies Superbad? Or Sex Drive?
both show a very negative stereotype that having sex is the
must for all men...

Virgin shaming, that is...

and hell..

Remember the Elliot Rodger incident?
He was raised in a society where
people shame virgin men...


------------

Porn is definitely not the culprit...
it's society...

I have a better solution:

SUPERVISE YOUR FRIGGING CHILDREN WHEN THEY'RE SURFING THE BLUDDY NET!!

If you so happen to fail to supervise the children,
then kindly cut off your internet until all your children turns at least 13 years old.

That's why COPPA exists.

it's not the porn industry's fault that the kids see it...
IT'S THE PARENT'S FAULT FOR NOT SUPERVISING THEM!!!


~Facts-not-feminism

Oh, and BTW...
a certain porn site created a fundraising campaign to raise money for Breast Cancer awareness week.
If you get rid of porn,
then you've just lost an ally...

I agree we should filter it from kids. i mean, im not going to say we will end it. I just think that we should stop kids from finding it.

Why stop at porn? Let's ban everything that offends you, personally.

As a sex-positive feminist, I find the anti-sex position (fine, fine, sex-negative, whatever) to be remarkably similar to the patriarchy's stifling of female sexuality. And that's before getting into the censorship issues of banning pornography, and my complete loathing, inside and outside of my feminism, regarding puritanism. Are you going to tell me that heterosexuality inherently oppresses women? While part of me would disagree with the assertion, another part of me would be telling you about the delicious, Sapphic alternative. 

That being said, could they make lesbian porn for lesbians? Like, seriously, all the mainstream girl and girl stuff I find just panders to male fantasies about lesbians. It's mean. >n<

Pft! Yes quite a few forms of heterosexuality oppresses women. I think porn oppresses everyone, not just women.  

I'm not a blind person where this is concerned. Porn is not a very good way to describe a healthy sexual relationship. There are, though, certain novels/tv shows/movies that can illustrate it better. Porn isn't really needed in my opinion. 

Having seen lesbian porn (yes, I've seen porn videos before) I found all of it very... dumb.

It would be more responsible to more tightly regulate porn, to make sure the actresses (and actors) aren't exploited, underpaid, and abused by the industry. They need fair compensation, health plans, and maybe actual protection against STI infection (both prophylactic and by covered health screenings), et cetera. People are gonna make it either way and it is an industry, let's send OSHA in instead of the Sex Police. Driving it underground will only make it worse. (Note: This argument is about pornographic material depicting otherwise legal sex acts, not every type of pornography possible)

Personally mainstream porn isn't really my thing, I tend to gravitate towards paraphilic material. Unrelated to my orientation, I would just rather see something fetishy (I'll get specific if I *must*, but it is quite tame) than watch some poor girl get spunked on by ugly audience-surrogate guys. Like, besides my personal taste being a factor, the stuff I like is a lot less degrading (that isn't to say the community is perfect) in depiction, if a bit esoteric. 

That's because they didn't think of lesbians when producing lesbian porn, they wanted to use female homosexuality to titillate men. Like, you don't put four-inch acrylic talons in a girl's cunny, that's like being fingered by Freddy Krueger but with the glove still on. 

Speaking of...so if quite a few forms of heterosexuality oppress women, have you ever considered the less oppressive alternative? Sexual orientation isn't a choice, so if you're like...Kinsey 0 heterosexual I can understand the lack of desire for female companionship, but otherwise I do have to ask why you haven't considered it. You might be missing out on some very snuggly, very feels-heavy romance. That and ya know, women tend to be adorbs

1) You're right, we should do that. It would make things better. So long as I don't have to see it thrown in my face whenever I reeeaally don't want to see it, I really don't care. 

2) Part of what turned me off to porn when I was a young, pretty idiotic, eighteen-year-old who had no idea what the hell was going on: really ugly guys. It wasn't even an issue with normal, plain-looking guys. The porn industry is for men and men only and straight women seriously have nothing to look at... This is where reading does wonders and, when I was curious about the world of sex, I searched it out. 

3) Talons?

4) Yeah, I'm very much an all guy girl. I've just become incredibly picky over the years. I have noticed that the older I get (note I'm 22 now) my taste tends towards older men. Liam Neeson? Yep! Tom Hiddleston? Certainly! Benedict Cumberbatch? Hello Sweety!

Will say this, though: in certain book series/tv shows my favorite characters/couples tend to be gay. Sailor Moon: Haruka/Sailor Uranus. Doctor Who: Madame Vastra and Jenny. Mortal Instruments: Magnus Bane. This has nothing to do with my sexuality and everything to do with how awesome the characters are.
