    How about kids as young as 11 wanting to experiment with group settings? I’m not even talking about 17yr olds with a pic of his 16 year old girlfriend. This stuff is too accessible and what they have access to is not Marilyn Monroe’s Playboy shoot.

    The stuff out there gives a child a warped sense of relationships and also wrecks their view of the opposite sex. No way in hell can anyone say that exposing little kids to this stuff does not have a negative impact on them.

    In the early 2000’s some politicians wanted to have one domain where you accessed porn on the internet. Porn companies were buying up domains with innocent names that would steer kids right to porn. Why would you do that? The idea of a main site died in Washington. Turns out the industry was dropping some serious money into campaign coffers.

    All I am saying is, show me data. I'm not unwilling to believe. It's just that, from what I know exists, the overwhelming evidence refutes the idea. Until then, this is, to me, like saying video games makes kids violent. (And it turns out, if it has an effect, it is probably the opposite effect, if only slightly).

    It also can't be data out of context. It has to be measured against those with access to different mediums to see it.

    Until then, it's anecdotal. I don't think it is a good idea to legislate as a response to anecdotal evidence.

    Just another moral panic so the people who make a living trying to control people can take more control of people. If all else fails, use the children. Our general European Puritan hang-ups motivate us to go along with just about any form of prohibition so long as they can convince us the kids ain't all right. But the actual facts show the kids are probably safer than ever.

    This porn panic business is akin to the fear-based gun prohibition movement. The flood of guns into general society SEEMS like a scary thing. But it coincided with a precipitous and continuous drop in gun violence, and violence in general. And you can't change that reality with a bunch of scary gun-murder anecdotes (of which there are, of course, plenty).

    Sounds like there is one in England. Panic may be too dramatic of a word. Outrage?
