The War on Porn

Tech and Science News: The War on Porn

State government wants to prohibit porn? Yep, according to a new resolution in Utah that wants to recognize "that pornography is a public health hazard" and a "epidemic that is harming the citizens of Utah". Just how much porn are they watching in Utah anyway?

    This video seriously should've been flagged NSFW. All of the cornography made me pop a kernel and now i have to explain to my boss why there's butter all over my desk. Thanks.

    Sometimes I hate being from Utah. There's a lot of intolerant, not smart people, here.

    I'm of the opinion porn is wrong (I realize on this site that I'll be one of the only people who do) But we can all agree that blaming McDonald and Libraries is kinda stupid...
    PS. That corn porn is the creepiest thing I've seen all day...

    Always nice to see the government focusing on non-issues. I hope next they tackle the validity of a dog being elected mayor. Which is just really sad and funny for the politicians who ran and lost to a dog.

    It was already a requirement to report child porn when discovered. This thing doesn't change that... but then if you check up on your local and federal governments, you'd know how much they repeat themselves to pass the same laws over and over again, and they do it because none of you reading this likely bother to check up on what they do (and possibly because they don't know the existing law anyway).


    The fact that someone in Utah referenced the rest of the country in his concern, it sounds to me more like he wants to be emperor and make unilateral decisions upon the nation without anyone else's say-so.


    Still, one man pushing an agenda in Utah is not necessarily all of Utah, but with me never living in Utah, I couldn't say if it is accurately representing the general legislative sentiment of Utah. Digging through and keeping up with this state's and my home state's legislation occupies enough of my time.


    Now if you'll pardon me, I must go listen to some Etta James.

    It's an epidemic and I've never been happier to be a victim!


    But like every politician who came out against LGBT's only to be found banging a dude months later, how long till this guy has his browser history revealed?
    I got $10 on 2 months.

    Worst thing I ever found on a PC being repaired was a folder full of bondage porn, it was Very Very creepy, it also happened to be on a PC owned by the farther of a close friend, that was back in '06 and it is still very hard to look at the son and not giggle a little when thinking of his of the fathers porn stash, i realise this is a little childish but I can help myself. To think that I may find child porn while repairing one scared, still scares the shit out of me. I think the same little voice is in the back of most technicians heads, it says, what the hell am I going to do if I find child porn on a PC I'm fixing, its scary shit, and not something I want to fuck with. So I made the change to psychology in '09. I still get to help fixing things, but this time its the mind and body not a cpu and ram, I just press different buttons, though there are times the two fields feel eerily similar.

    So when a state mentions banning pornography or addressing it as a "public health issue", that's terrible! But when a state bans certain firearms and prohibits lawful people from buying firearms, that's okay. My rights can get shit on, but when a state mentions banning another form of entertainment, everyone is up in arms. Fuck off.


    People cannot go both ways with government regulation. Either support their power or decry it. You can't have both.

      The answers to your question are: Statistics and Design.

      Stats

      More people were killed and injured in 2015 by firearms than porn.

      Design

      Firearms are designed to kill things, yes sometimes bad things, but they're designed to kill.

      Porn is designed to create sexual stimulation and may have some adverse affects but there is no fully proven evidence that verifies that point.

      There's the difference.

      Only a Sith deals in absolutions. also, define certain firearms. not going for a gun control discussion here but I feel that it is necessary to know what guns are discussed to get your point across properly

    I am psychology major who has been studying Human Sexuality (specifically in regard to education) and right now psychologist believe the only effects of pornography are unrealistic expectations of sex and sexual social scripts and (like all media) desensitization to the content.

    By desensitization that could for instance mean a person who watches lots of porn may not be as shocked by seeing promiscuous action in real life if they see it in their pornography. That Desensitization is true for all media and content whether it be violence on tv or bondage in a book.

    The expectations comes into play by giving different expectations of how people should look, act, or behave in sexual situations. This could cause anything from people feeling insecure because they don't look like the pornstars to misreading a situation as someone wanting sex when they do not. This is especially true for those who don't get knowledge of sex anywhere else as their parents may not give them the talk and those who may not have decent sex education.

    Found dad's playboy stash in his closet when I was a kid. The better story is when I walked in the den and my dad was clearly printing porn photos from the internet. He immediately told me to get out LoL
