All this hypersexualization of society has done, is given us a culture with a bad case of sexual ennui, more and more stimulation is needed to satisfy, leading to more and more deviancy.

Perhaps so...

But I would submit that contrary to traditional conservative beliefs... this is a direct consequence of too much government influence and control in the lives of men... and not too little.

Sex was GREAT when it was something "dirty" and hidden....

Because then it allowed you to think you were doing something bad and naughty, huh? Kinky.

I'm startin' to feel kind of left out. Apparently I don't spend near enough time worrying about what consenting adults are doing with their genitalia.

Why did you use the word "SEX" twice in your keyword section? Trying to sell us something?
At least he didn't use "sister" in a thread of this nature. >:)

That's nothing - a full 100% of criminals, including all serial killers and pedophiles, breathe air while committing their crimes. It's time for someone to take a stand and say "This air is wrong, and we're not going to take it any more!"

So I'm starting a new organization - "Sensible Americans Who Think This Air-Breathing Thing Has Just Gone Too Darn Far Now" (S.A.W.T.T.A.B.T.H.J.G.T.D.F.N.) And I hope you'll all join me in eradicating this threat from the national landscape.

Quit searching for porn in search engines, with your 'one or two keywords,' and they won't be able to sap your precious bodily fluids.

Uh oh. Does this mean that I, as a Sexual-American, am going to have to re-register as a Democrat?

I figure I'm an adult and I can determine whether I will view porn or have sex. I don't need any dogooders and nanny-staters trying to regulate my life "for my own good." Get a freakin' life.

Being a small-l libertarian myself, I could probably come up with some sort of rationalization that would suggest this, but I haven't given it much thought.

Even IF government intervention could lessen the "sexualization of society", I am afraid that the cure would be far worse than the disease.

Heh, well it certainly was more of an achievement back then, more of a challenge. Nowadays, much of the fun has been taken out of it.. (well, ok, it still is plenty of fun, but ya know what I mean?)

But, God forbid you should attempt to fluoridate the water supply. Damned communists ...

Ripper: You know when fluoridation first began?

Mandrake: I-- no, no. I don't, Jack.

Ripper: Nineteen hundred and forty-six. Nineteen forty-six, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works.

Porn and Sexual Americans?

As for Pornography, I think there are zealots who would replace the word PORN with GUNS, DRUGS, SUVs and Tobacco.
They would be just as wrong as you are. It is not the vice that does damage, but the unwise person caught up in the vice.

As for Sexual Americans, I think you realize that without them, none of us would be here. There is nothing wrong with Sex, but there is a lot wrong with spending time focusing on Wrong-things, instead of on wrong-doers.

You're right. That's the downside of the pornography superhighway. And it's a very big downside. We have sown the seeds. We should be reaping the whirlwind shortly.

C'mon. They never find child porn with molesters. And if they do, it's a mere coincidence.

That may be, but tooth decay beats the heck out of the alternative.

No. We goats don't feel it is any of your business what we do or do not do in the privacy of our own homes. Course, you ain't called "sheep" for nothing ...

Coincidence? Of course not. But your stance seems to be that the child porn turned them into molesters, rather than the more rational explanation that molesters are attracted to child porn.

The people who are sexually aroused by children and are willing to physically act on that arousal would do so whether or not any pornography had ever been available to them. To those people, a public beach is every bit the instrument of arousal that, for example, a cartoon drawing of a child engaged in sexual acts is. But the logic leap required to believe that someone without a previous inclination towards children would suddenly be driven to commit a physical act against a child when exposed to pornography is just laughable, IMHO.

There is tons of filtering software out there to protect you from this "attack".

I was once doing a search on the subject of Black Irish/Black Dutch which is cultural/historical subject going back to American Indians in the Southeast. Many of the sites that came up, based on their title were appalling--but guess what--I didn't open them--it is a choice and I can do my own filtering.

Yawn...

Why not address the real problem in society? Lack of harsh punishment for crime. Lack of parents disciplining their children. Lack of equal standards in the law. Lack of a backbone to stand up to crime.

If a man or woman wishes to pose nude for what ever reason, I have no problem with it as long as it is consensual. Same goes if they want to have sex and video tape it. I honestly don't care. If the person is under 18 or is forced into the act, sure, then we have a problem. As for someone with the ability to make decisions for themselves, I would think that they should be insulted, offended, and degraded that someone would presume to make decisions about another persons life.

We must each be responsible for our own actions. That is what makes America strong. By delegating responsibility to a very few for the many, you take away our freedom and strength.

Hang on to the myth that sex is the evil that will destroy man. Just don't presume to force your views on me.

Mike

Are you referring to any post here stating that a child molester possessing child pornography is simply a "coincidence"? If so, could you please link said post? Because it seems like you're simply creating a nice little strawman to knock down.
