Scientists at the University of Montreal launched a search for men who had never looked at pornography- but couldn´t find any:

 

Researchers were conducting a study comparing the views of men in their 20s who had never been exposed to pornography with regular users.

But their project stumbled at the first hurdle when they failed to find a single man who had not been seen it.

“We started our research seeking men in their 20s who had never consumed pornography,” said Professor Simon Louis Lajeunesse. “We couldn´t find any.”

Although hampered in its original aim, the study did examined the habits of those young men who used pornography – which would appear to be all of them.

Prof Lajeunesse interviewed 20 heterosexual male university students who consumed pornography, and found on average, they first watched pornography when they were 10 years old.

This is terrifying!! Especially considering the kind of stuff they watch and apparently find stimulating.. a lot of it is extremely hateful and racist, but anyway..violence against women, exploitaition and mysogyny is here to stay

Here´s a recent study about the use of pornography and supporting violence against women:

 

Pornography and attitudes supporting violence against women: revisiting the relationship in nonexperimental studies

 

"the current results showed an overall significant positive association between pornography use and attitudes supporting violence against women"

Cheers Armegon.

 

Kitty, we know you´re obssessed with the anti-porn campaign. How would you account for the violence against women in countries where porn is banned? The truth is not every man watching porn will treat women with disrespect and not every man who doesn´t will be respectful. Like it or not, we are sexual beings (meaning both men and women). Culture has forced us to believe in monogamy (or polygamy for only one gender is some cultures ) but our instincts are still there. The porn business makes money on our primitive needs. Funny how you always refer to women being abused in porns and at the same time you forget to mention there is the other gender involved as well. Aren´t men treated there in a derogatory manner?

Yeah, and you´re obsessed with the pro-porn campaign. {#emotions_dlg.you_crazy}  Are you actually serious about this question? I think you´re too intelligent to ask this... as well as the rest of them.

May be....but I think you are jumping to conclusions about what they watch.  The article did not  define exactly what porn is. 

 

In the not too distant past many things were banned as porn....

 

During the excavations of Pompeii a great deal of pornography was first discovered and hidden away....for none but the "upper classes" to view. It was not expected that the lower classes would contain themselves when viewing such material.....

 

There used to be a definition of erotic art....and pornography....sometimes they merge together.  I suspect in this cast, they are merged.

 

It´s interesting to look at the etymology of the word:

 

Porne= prostitute..............graph = write or to record

 

IOW it is a written or drawn description of the activity of a prostitute. I guess sort of what could be expected at certain establishments....or promotional material....

 

Censorship History

 

"As public tastes change, so does the nature of popular drama. In the fifth century BCE, Aristophanes´ "Lysistrata" attracted censors for its themes of wifely rebellion and sex. From the 15th to the 18th centuries, plays were censored primarily for religious or political reasons. In the 19th century, social and sexual reasons for censorship emerged, and modern moralists have objected to works by such playwrights as Arthur Miller, Eugene O´Neill, and Lillian Hellman. Most recently, plays dealing with topics such as homosexuality and AIDS have garnered unwanted attention from censors. This work outlines the censorship history of 125 classic plays from ancient times to the present. Each entry presents the name(s) under which the play has appeared, the date it was produced and country of original production, a summary of the play, its censorship history, and suggestions for further reading. Among the works covered are: "Angels in America - Millennium Approaches", Tony Kushner, 1991; "Le Barbier de Seville", Pierre Beaumarchis, 1775; "The Children´s Hour", Lillian Hellman, 1934; "The Crucible", Arthur Miller, 1953; "Henry IV, Part 2", William Shakespeare, 1598; "Jesus Christ Superstar" Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, 1971; "Oedipus Rex", Sophocles, 425 BCE; "Oh! Calcutta", Kenneth Tynan, 1969; "Salome", Oscar Wilde, 1896; and "Le Tartruffe", Moliere, 1669."

 

 

I am also opposed to any type of activity that opresses or exploits anyone...or advocates such activity. 

 

It seems in Pompeii, as today, many of the prostitutes were captives.  I don´t think many would choose such a life if they hade other choices....although some may...........Let´s not forget, or over look the fact that  hypersexuality does exist....

Nope, I´m not on a pro-porn campaign. I´m simply NOT against porn. It should be up to an adult person whether or not s/he wants to watch other adult people having consensual sexual intercourse filmed at their knowledge.

 

I dislike the fact that sex these days is still a bit of a taboo. Young people don´t get educated enough to know what to do with their sexuality. Their parents rarely talk about it because they haven´t been talked to about it as well. Schools offer very limited knowledge on the subject, if any, so kids are left to learn everything from their friends who are just as much in the dark.

 

People are often embarrassed when talking about sex - there is a dissonance between the way sex is talked about in families and normal sexual needs. That´s why people make up for it by either vulgarity or laughter.

 

My point is - let´s not make a taboo of sex, it´s part of who we are. Get properly educated and if you still want to watch porn so be it.
