Ohh...I see, that justifies it all doesn't it? I mean since its, you know, been around it must be okay. And its "common" in our human thread. I see, so making the places that sell it hide is not fair right? Maybe we should have it in grade school or at least high school...am I right? After all its a "common thread of humanity" according to you.
As long as there is masturbation there will be porn either underground or in the open. So you believe there shouldnt be masturbation? Oh...thy only go together? And this is relevant how? people do so without porn...what in the world does this question have to do with the value discussion and debate as to the merits of porn? JUSTIFY PORN to us...tell us how it is GOOD. Maybe you ca tell us how it supports the family and does no harm to marriage or how the mockery of family in so much of porn is actually a good thing.
So how is porn good? Ok the Gonorrhea rate peaked in 1978 and the syphilis rate in 1946. There has been a slight rise since 2000 but more likely the rise of illegal immigration than internet porn. I remember reading elsewhere where sexual assaults and other sex related crimes are down. So perhaps people getting themselves off by viewing porn has reduced all that. There is much more viewing of porn by the United States military over in the battle zone than in previous wars yet sexual assaults and rapes is rare.
As for marriage, I remember years ago at a National Guard unit I was in most of the old timers would gather together after drill and watch porn and drink some beer. About all of them was happily married for years and will be until they die. I am thinking of all the troubled marriages I have known and I can’t think of porn being the cause of the problem for any. I am sure there is a few but there was much bigger issues for most couples than porn. Frankly I find it pitiful these churches who preach over and over about porn yet most of their congregation is divorced or having problems because they ignore bigger issues. In fact in my personal opinion the Churches has really screwed the pooch about the sanity of marriage.
Other than that, one man’s porn might be another man’s art.
“Maybe we should have it in grade school or at least high school...am I right?”
I saw my first porn movie when I was 9 and i’m 72 now so does that ruin me?
By the way, i’ve been married for 51 years.
