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.

Other related links:
profiles.nlm.nih.gov/NN/B/C/K/… -this one is old, but considering the fact that society seems to get worse than better, I would say that these are accurate figures I, myself, have witnessed from people either on the internet and/or in real life.
marriage.about.com/cs/pornogra…
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.

Ok please don't bother us about music that's sexualized. I listen to those types of songs and liked them. And I STILL am not a perv to others! I don't even curse! The porn thing I  agree with but not the music.

I read the article and it shocked me. I'm young, and it really shocked me. Now I don't know what to think about it at all. Porn really isn't good, it should be banned. But then, the internet is so big and complex, it's hard to ban anything. The only thing we can do is have self control to simply not look at it. We can't make the internet better, we have to make ourselves better.

I so agree. Porn is very harmful. It changes the mind. My family has had problems with it. It helped crumble the marriage between my father and mother. But there were also many things that ruined it ( one my mom is crazy) my dad put up a lot with her. Though he had his mental immbalances aswell. With my mom's second marriage. ( her husband not my step dad. Never will I call him more then that. I strongly dislike the man) the man had everything he wanted. A nice home, good job. My mother was somewhat sane. But he went online at night when my mom was asleep. Probably even after they made love. He looked at porn.

Now to my other point. As much as I hate porn. This is something that will never leave. Well not till this world ends. We can warn people to stand up agaisnt it. Keep our childern away from it. But sadly there are still sick fucks( I only swear mean it.) That will do this. Now there is sex trafficing. But there is and strongly sex slavroy trades. Most porn is that. Its huge in africa. In kenya where I traveled for a missions trip. Every night and day. Women and girls are stolen. Its sick! So messed up on so many levels. Not only that( bit off topic) everynight boys are captured and killed for black market for their organs and for boy soilders. Which I don't get why people aren't helping with this. Or helping with stavfing or childern. Even abult need medical attenion!

You forgot the most important fact above all else: It is, whatever the fuck the porn apologists may throw at us for the sake of their own lust, linked to SEX FUCKING TRAFFICKING. :steaming:

Also I probably hate this garbage from Hell a lot more than you and :iconfcu777: as some porn I viewed myself to fucking understand what exactly goes in their minds despite my utter disdain for it (yes, at least I am open-minded which is more than those hedonistic freaks can say) and most of the stuff they showed, why am I not surprised, show the exact same thing the fucking Japanese did to all the victims of Nanking Massacre and Comfort Women, one of whom I have talked to and known personally, who has been like my grandmother to me. Anyone who says there's nothing wrong with porn is like those Japanese soldiers and therefore, my enemy.

I agree that porn can be detrimental to children but I'm gonna have to go along with DemonFox here. Don't let kids come across it. I know you can't keep your eyes on them all the time but let's be honest here. Porn's going nowhere. 

It's the oldest form of entertainment in the world. One of the first moving pictures ever created was a French Porno. Hell in 2005 they dug up a pornographic statue that dates back to 2,000 years ago. It's been around since the dawn of time. Not gonna go away now.

If they stay on a child website, none.

Unless you have a parental lock on it or are watching what your kids do, there's every change they might come across it.

Actually, now that I think about it, you're kinda right. I was once watching a video on YouTube like SkyDoesMineCraft and suddenly I was on quality website for buying sex toys or disgusting things or shizzle mc gizzle. I immediately went to tell my mom and she said it was good I told her that so I went back to watching videos. Then again the child would most likely tell their parents or be disgusted and exit out or go to a different page.

I really don't know what a kid would do in that situation. I think a lot of kids might be kinda freaked out, but I don't think parents should be too surprised if their kids don't freak out about it. Kids get curious about the adult world.

I remember when I was about 7, me and a friend of mine came across a porn mag my uncle had under his bed. I assume he had left it there by mistake. We spent like half an hour looking over it and wondering what the hell was going on, then put it back and never talked about it again. Didn't tell my parents until year later.
So...yeah

I dunno. I found porn when I was 9(nine). My dad sat me down and talked with me for hours.
He answered every question I had honestly and truthfully. HE told me why it exists, what it's all about, everything.
A few school grades after that, and I had some formal, detailed, and graphic sex-ed.
Now I'm 14(fourteen). I'm headed into the IB program. I want to be a physicist when I grow up. 
If I do say so myself, I believe I have led a relatively normal life.
After five years, I guess I have to thank my father and my teachers for being honest and helpful with me.
In my experience, All it takes is a good role model to follow by, and the porn industry will become irrelevant.
That said, a lot of people like this industry. I not only tolerate its existence, I believe it's beneficial, and I support it.
Sure, there are... examples that stray far from what humans have regularly been doing for thousands of years...
But some people like to watch it. And so someone produces it and makes money. Supply and demand.
In the end, It just boils down to whom the child's guide is.

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...

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...

What about sex-ed? Doctors checking up on you? Doctors helping giving birth? You're basically spreading yourself outward while a man that you never knew (or trust) looks inside you! Doctors looking at your body parts seeing if you're healthy! Sex-ed also shows body parts to pre-teens maybe even! In my class our science teacher said she would explain how babies eventually. Let people like what they like. At least it would help understand what happens sometimes! Plus there are many funny YouTuber's who were called offensive to some people personally. Why not stop them too? We have more problems to worry about than PORN! They might find it because someone told them! Besides there's some websites where you need an account to use it just like in WoozWorld where you need an account to actually play but the opposite of OurWorld where you can play as a guest but to do more stuff you need an account.

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.

1) If they used over sex-appeal in advertising less, that would prolly help. A big clear line between porn an an advertisement for sandwiches would be nice. Like, just get photogenic people wearing clothes enjoyin' the product or whatever. No one needs to be half-naked when they're selling you a car, they could just give out some tech specs being ready by a voice coupled with some shots of the car doin' stuff or being used by the target demographic and stuff and it would be more ethical and probs more accurate advertising. But nah, they use sex (and by sex I mean sexy ladies) to sell stuff because reasons. 

Plus in general, regulated sex work is a lot safer than making it black market. That being said, I wouldn't want to legalize sex that wouldn't be legal if performed by private, unpaid participants. Like...there is a difference between pornography depicting consenting adults doing the Dew and a donkey show. If it would be legal to do in your bedroom, it should be legal in pornographic material, natch. 

People get really, really mean to women who are involved in the porn trade, even just sex work (stripping, fetish modeling, whatever). Like, disgustingly mean. Maybe strippers are stripping because there's a demand (capitalism, after all), and they have a supply that puts a lot of dosh in the bank. Sex sells, so raw sexual content naturally sells like hotcakes. What they use their money for is none of anyone's business (as long as it's legal, but that goes towards any money people have in general). But instead of being all laissez-faire (like I thought our society was supposed to be about commercial activity), some people just heap on the scorn for these women. If she's making a career out of it, she's "not thinking of her future". Geez, that's just condescending. If she's doing it to get through school, then she's being some kind of evil whore who shouldn't be there. Damned if you do, damned if you don't? Yeesh, that's just harsh. 

It's not like the people who bully sex workers (or don't think of them as human, even) don't also consume sex products, whether it be pornography, seeing a strip-show, or visiting prostitutes, or just actively enjoying sex-laden advertising; so there's just this degrading hypocrisy. I don't think that the degradation that exists in sexuality is inherent, that is learned, disgusting behavior. This attitude, this condemnation is just... misogyny. Slut-shaming contributes to rape culture much more than the actual content of the media and businesses do. 

2) YES! They don't wanna make the guys who watch porn jealous of the actors in the films, so they get some Ron Jeremy-looking dude to ease their insecurities (or that's what they think of their audience, either way it's messed) rather than trying to get pretty guys to snuggle up to the pretty ladies. Like, porn for straight women would involve like...really, really, reeeeally good-looking men being nice and supportive and catering to the actress' needs (as in, simulated or otherwise, she is enjoying herself instead of cringing at the camera) rather than just trying to get theirs, I would guess. Or maybe like, handsome guys bein' handsome in half-naked situations? Somethin' like that.

The same kind of thing happens in a lot of girl/girl mainstream stuff, where you can tell the actresses are uncomfortable doing stuff with another girl and it totally rips you out of the moment and you're like "but the intimacy is all smiley and giggly, not panicked and fake like that!" 'cuz it almost seems like they don't wanna depict female pleasure as a thing. Heck, in "normal" movies you get in more trouble with the ratings police and the moral guardians for depicting female arousal than you do male arousal. 

Example, from the documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated; they cite the difference in how the MPAA treated the directors of American Pie regarding the scene where Jason Biggs literally has sex with a *pie* (and was even featured in the trailer!), and the scene in But I'm a Cheerleader where Natasha Leon tries to masturbate. The only err, actual difference in content in those scenes is that in the former it's a heterosexual male teenager masturbating (using pie), and a homosexual female teenager masturbating. Somehow it's more offensive when it's a gay girl trying to masturbate than it is when a straight guy is literally having sex with pie. Sure, this point is more about the intersection of sexism *and* heteronormativity (heterosexism!) than just sexism, but they're films from the same year reviewed by the same body so it's apt. What exactly makes a girl pleasuring herself more offensive than a boy pleasuring himself? It's the same act, so it shouldn't be inherently more upsetting either way unless there is a bias in play. Why, why, why honestly I don't understand why or how...how is homosexual content inherently more offensive than straight content? Unless someone actually believes that gay sexuality is somehow more offensive than straight sexuality...which would make them biased against gays...right? 

3) Imagine having four-inch claws on the fingers that are going inside you. That is not going to be pleasant...and yet, a lot of lesbian porn (that I've seen, anyways) has actresses talons like they're freaking Wolverine, going in four fingered. Like...oww! >n< That isn't even what we do, because like oww I don't want someone slicing up my insides. No wonder those actresses are cringing, they're intentionally making the sex painful by adding claws. And then on top of that, they will make the lesbian stuff have a guy come in who converts them away from their lesbianism with his magic man-meat. Like, as though we just haven't found the right dick yet. It's creepy and sleazy and not how lesbianism even works except in creepy male fantasies. It's...uggh. It's all just bleh. 

4) Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune were awesome o3o ! I don't know why they had to censor their relationship in the dub...well, I know why, I just don't know why they did. Heck, they even made Zoisite a woman to avoid the inclusion of non-heterosexuals. It's not fun when you get erased out of things because you don't fit someone's idea of appropriate. The series was incredibly popular and had queer love in it, so it's not like those two things are mutually exclusive. The magical girl genre has a history of being...really, really homoerotic, so I have to ask if the people dubbing it even read ahead a bit in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon to maybe see if there was some yuri up ahead. 

Erasure isn't fun. Like, they think people won't handle it, so they'll leave it out of an adaptation (or just decide we don't exist), which then just perpetuates people's myopic notions further. Homophobia isn't natural, it's learned. Like, when parents don't want gay stuff even talked about in a way their children could hear it, or just want their children not exposed to anyone who isn't straight, it seems pretty clear to me that they want their children to learn to hate us. It's...messed up. >n< 

Oh! I feel you on older peeps bein' attractive; I tend to like older-than-me ladies, preferably with the curves because curvy/chubby ladies is just like oh my GOSH with the hips and the legs and the hugs. Like, Nigella Lawson? She's gorgeous. Helen Mirren? Stunning! Sofia Vergara? Uggh I think she makes me even gayer than I already am just by existing. Even a lady in her twenties has a few years on me, which is also nice. :3 Like uh, Kat Dennings? Kat Dennings is just like the curves and the sass and her hair is pretty and :squee: :squee: :squee:




But yeah, you don't have to be gay to enjoy gay romances, and enjoyin' them doesn't make you gay x3 Wow, this post got long xD
