    25,000 adult film stars, distributors, and fans descended on Las Vegas this week for the 15th annual Adult Entertainment Expo and AVN Award Show, the industry’s equivalent of the Academy Awards. Porn stars showed off for the cameras, toy manufacturers hawked their wares, and 1,000 journalists from hundreds of outlets chronicled the extravaganza. However, this year’s convention comes at a pivotal moment for the industry’s presence in California, which has long been the pornography capital of the world.
  • Say no to porn. Boycott 50 Shades of Grey, the movie: sign the petition

    Background: Hollywood executives have chosen to release the film version of the "erotic" novel 50 Shades of Grey in theaters this Valentine's Day - Feb. 14, 2015. While the marketing campaign is selling the movie as a "romance," there is nothing authentically romantic about the tale of a sado-masochistic sexual relationship between a young, vulnerable student, Anastasia, and an older billionaire, Christian Grey. Critics have described the book as misogynistic, pornographic, exploitative, sexually violent, and anti-romance – and there is little reason to expect the film will be anything different. Opposition to the book and movie crosses the ideological spectrum,...
  • Do Muslims watch Pornography?

    01/16/2015 3:36:32 PM PST · by SJackson · 77 replies
    Yes! Unfortunately pornography has a foothold in both the Islamic and non-islamic worlds. Western society is well known for its blatant promotion of the pornographical industry, and it has never hidden the rampant pornography consumption that is prevalent within its developed countries. But the consumption of pornography in Islamic countries has seemingly flown under the radar, with the Islamic community leaders either unaware of, or turning a blind eye to the issue. Many experts are of the opinion that the pornography addiction topic is well known by the Imams in western countries, but it is an area they dare not...

    Paris authorities found kiddie porn on the computers of two of the Paris Islamist killers. IBT reported: As French authorities continue their hunt for possible accomplices of the Islamist extremist gunmen who killed 17 people over three days in Paris last week, it has emerged two of the attackers were found in possession of paedo-pornographic material during an earlier anti-terrorism investigation. In 2010, a police search of the computers of Cherif Kouachi and Amedy Coulibaly revealed traces of child porn images the two men had stored and later erased, French media reported. The two were under investigation for their alleged...

    Always game to push the boundaries of the portrayal of awkward sex on television, merely a few short minutes into Girls’ fourth season, Lena Dunham managed to up the squirm factor by tossing in some unexpected butt play between Marnie (Allison Williams) and Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach). We caught up with the cast (and Brian Williams) at the season four premiere and asked them — as delicately as we could — their thoughts on the soon-to-be-infamous sex scene.

    WINGED GARGOYLES guarded the gate at Jeffrey Epstein's Palm Beach mansion. Inside, hidden cameras trolled two rooms, while the girls came and went. For the police detectives who sifted through the garbage outside and kept records of visitors, it was the lair of a troubling target. Epstein, one of the most mysterious of the country's mega-rich, was known as much for his secrecy as for his love of fine things: magnificent homes, private jets, beautiful women, friendships with the world's elite. But at Palm Beach police headquarters, he was becoming known for something else: the regular arrival of teenage girls...

    Joan Collins, who became one of the most glamorous actresses of the 1980s in her steamy role as Alexis Carrington in Dynasty, is revealing that beneath the Hollywood glitz she was repressing a secret: She had been raped. And she's concerned that the misogyny of porn five decades later will victimize another generation of naive young women. The British-born star is speaking out about being raped after her attacker showed her hardcore pornography and drugged her at the tender age of 17. She went on to marry him. Collins says that her favorite actor, Maxwell Reed, invited the teen to...

    About a month ago, Rolling Stone Magazine published a savage story that made headlines across North America, detailing a brutal gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity. Controversy erupted almost immediately, with the same tiresome lines being trumpeted: Feminists declaring that this assault was evidence of the prevalence of “rape culture,” and conservatives arguing that rape culture didn’t exist. As the UVA rape story began to unravel, feminists got rather shrill, justifiably worried that this could result in other anti-rape measures being taken less serious. Conservatives were a bit triumphant, rather ironically stating that this was another example of...

    Yesterday I told you about five famous women whose TV shows and movies I refuse to watch because of their very public pro-abortion views and, in most cases, their financial support of Planned Parenthood. Today, I’ll tell you about five male celebrities I boycott. Famous men are less likely in general to be vocally pro-choice, as the issue is still mistakenly viewed by some — especially pro-abortion advocates — as one in which men should have no say. This is ridiculous, since abortion is not just a women’s issue but a human rights issue. Also, organizations are less likely to...

In a news release, Hurst police said they raided the home in the 2100 block of David Drive based on a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. During the raid Tuesday, police seized a “large amount” of evidence of child pornography and exploitation of children, police said. Sgt. Craig Teague said the evidence...

The emails contained a nude photo of John Muir High School teacher Richard Rosa. After an investigation, it was determined that Rosa was out of the country at the time the emails were generated. Authorities determined Rosa’s estranged partner, David A. Galvan, 38, accessed Rosa’s account and sent the emails because he was angry over their relationship ending.

Google notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone had uploaded an image of child pornography in June, according to Henry’s arrest report.

She calls it a “sex crime,” and says that anyone who purposely looked at the photos of her is guilty. Lawrence is right that, just because someone is a public figure, it doesn’t give the general public – or anyone in particular – a right to view stolen photos of them. But Lawrence also got it deeply wrong. In explaining why the nude photos were taken of her in the...

    Last month, parents were shocked to see the sex education guidelines being considered in Clark County, Nevada, schools. In a closed-door deliberation with some parents, the Las Vegas school district considered curriculum that recommends children as young as five be taught about abortion and masturbation– with pro-abortion propaganda scheduled to continue through every single grade level. The district’s proposed curriculum could be potentially crafted based on the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education, a guide produced with the aid of members of Planned Parenthood. The SIECUS guideline is among materials that the school district could largely model its new sex-education program...

Rampant divorce, contraception, unmarried cohabitation, and pornography, with an ever-shrinking knowledge of the moral law among ordinary people, are the issues most pressing against the institution of marriage, the scholars argue. They have asked the pope to encourage parishes to work to “restore legal provisions that protect marriage as a conjugal union of one man...

    1. The reasons pornography is not wrong. Pornography isn’t wrong because sex is bad or the body shameful. It's wrong because sex is good and the body magnificent! As Christians we must never forget whose idea sex was in the first place. It was not thought up by Hugh Hefner or by Cosmopolitan magazine but by God! In fact, God's very first commandment to humanity in the Bible is to “be fruitful and multiply” (Gen 1:28)! And as philosopher Dr. Peter Kreeft noted, “I do not think he meant for us to grow oranges and invent calculators.” Pornography is wrong...

    he virtue to which we are called with regard to sexual relationships is called chastity. Through integrity and self control, the chaste person observes the true meaning and intimacy of sexual relations. Pornography is gravely offensive to this. The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains, "[pornography] perverts the conjugal act, the intimate giving of spouses to each other. It does grave injury to the dignity of its participants (actors, vendors, the public), since each one becomes an object of base pleasure and illicit profit for others. It immerses all who are involved in the illusion of a fantasy world" (CCC...

  • ’50 Shades’ for girls: Planned Parenthood pushes porn

    It turns out that Planned Parenthood staffers love “50 Shades of Grey” — so much that they proclaim the series and its dubious philosophy to teen girls looking for guidance. “Fifty Shades” tells how how hyper-controlling Christian Grey subjects 21-year-old Ana Steele (who, it must be noted, talks like a 13-year-old) to an endless series of physically harmful and degrading sexual situations. Some consider it liberating (or at least titillating), but you can also call it sadomasochistic porn. Of course the mentality here, and its popular success, isn’t new. Recall Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”: With its unending repetition of “I...

    My previous columns drew attention to some of the ways pornography affects the actresses within it. Today I’d like to draw awareness to another fact that we don’t seem to comprehend: Pornography IS an AFFAIR. Any time we bond sexually with another person besides the one to whom we’ve committed ourselves, an affair occurs. It doesn’t matter if that bond is in person or via a computer screen, a dating or married person who uses pornography is literally cheating or committing adultery. Rather than go on about this at great length, I’d like to share two emails that I received....

    We live in reductionist times, which is another way of saying that we live in times that have often cast aside the deeper, sacramental, and mysterious meaning of things and people.Many human beings reduce themselves and others to merely biological realities. Gone is the soul and the mysterious spark we call life. Gone is the metaphysical, there is only the physical. Even our longings, our thirst and hunger for justice, our attraction to what is good, true and beautiful, even these soulful expressions and their reaching what is not material and “understood” by many today merely as emanations of the...

    Asd the film community battles to keep Hollywood close to home, another local industry – adult entertainment -- is fleeing Los Angeles. The number of permits issued for adult productions has plummeted since November 2012, when voters approved a measure that requires performers to wear condoms on sets. Last year, 40 permits were issued for X-rated productions in the city and county, down about 90% from the estimated number of permits issued in 2012. And through July of this year, only 20 permits have been issued for adult productions, according to data from FilmL.A. Inc., the nonprofit group that handles...
  • To the Christians who think 50 Shades is all sorts of awesome: Please, stop and THINK

    It’s pretty depressing when you realize that, in 2014, many people seem to think that destruction of human dignity is a small price to pay for an orgasm. I suppose when I write a column about a book that just sold its 100 millionth copy I shouldn’t be surprised when I get a bit of a kickback. But I have to say—I wasn’t expecting hundreds of commenters, many saying they were Christian, to come out loudly defending the porn novel 50 Shades of Grey, often tastelessly interspersed with details from their own sex lives. People squawked that we “shouldn’t judge”...

    So I read Fifty Shades of Grey. This is the book written by female British author “E. L. James” that became a huge bestseller, devoured by pretty much every woman on Earth except my wife (or so she claims). I think I might be the only man who read this book. I did it sneakily, hiding the cover, especially when I was on an airplane, which actually is a good place to read this book because you have access to a barf bag. I say this because of the writing style, which is . . . OK, here’s one tiny...

    Abortion activists claim pro-lifers are engaging in a “war on women:” by passing legislation to protect women and unborn children from abortion. But a new expose’ video catches a Planned Parenthood staffer engaging in her own war on women. The pro-life group Live Action released the third installment today in its “SexEd” investigative series, showing a Planned Parenthood staffer in Portland, Oregon offering disturbing sex counseling to someone she thinks is a fifteen-year-old girl. The video clearly shows the counselor encouraging the young girl to allow herself to be victimized in violent sexual encounters with her partner. The staffer tells...

    I never thought it would happen to me. I’m technologically savvy, hyper-vigilant about parental controls, and frequently check the search and browser histories of my kids’ electronic devices. As a writer for LSN, I’m more aware than most people of the filth that’s out there and the harmful effects it can have on a developing brain (not to mention a developing soul). So that’s why I was surprised and heartbroken the day I discovered my ten-year-old son had been watching hardcore pornography on his iPhone. It was the first day of final exams. At the bus stop that morning, my...

    Readers of LifeSiteNews are aware of the lawsuit brought by Dr. Steve Tourloukis of Hamilton, Ontario, against the Hamilton-Wentworth school board. He is a devout member of the Orthodox Church, and he wants to be told when the school plans to introduce to his children sexual material that he finds objectionable. The school board does not want to yield. They are standing on principles, such as those are. They believe they are “co-parents,” and that “children have a right to an inclusive education,” which means, simply, they have a “right” to be educated into complete sexual indifference and chaos. For...
