4 sites on the effect of porn on those who watch it. 3 of those regarding porn's influence on the divorce rate. Also 6 sites from ex-porn stars regarding the porn industry. Educate yourself. Or don't. That's your call not mine. I've looked into it though. This isn't just opinions without data.

To Ezhil.

So that's what you meant. Thank you for clearing that up. The reason I say not to generalize all religions together is because it stops any accountability from happening and goes on a witch hunt against religion in general.

The churches that I've been around try to make a better community for the area that they are in. If there is any bloodshed in them then be specific about it so they can be held accountable. There are other faults that I've seen. I would rather those issues be addressed and fixed or at least held accountable for.

The goals of every religion are different. Don't generalize religions themselves any more then you generalize the faults that should be dealt with. Let each organization be held accountable for what they do well, and what they do wrong. That includes the organizations from different religions, as well as organizations that are secular and follow a different philosophy or no philosophy at all.

Dear NNS,

I have looked at the references you cite and agree that porn does more harm than good. The studies you cited show its effects on adults.

As a side note I used to work for Philips, the Dutch electronic corporation. We got a request from the Saudi Arabian government to design a device that could examine the contents of a shipping container without opening it. They wanted the device to detect alcohol, weapons, subversive literature and porn. We refused the request because it was beyond our capability.

The studies you cite tell of the bad effects of porn. However, what are the effects of banning porn?

https://www.quora.com/Are-there-countries-where-pornography-is-illegal is a website which gives a partial answer to that question.

According to that site the countries that ban porn have a high rate of porn watchers.

A comment is interesting.

“Porn is illegal throughout the Middle East (Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and so on); China; North Korea; Turkmenistan; Vietnam Nam; Cuba; and Burma, among other places.

Generally speaking, there's a strong correlation between prevalence of porn in a country and respect for individual liberties and women’s rights in that country. The more oppression there is in a country, the more likely porn is to be outlawed.”

With all the damage alcohol does it was worse to ban it in the US than allow it. I think the same thing goes for porn. I agree that porn is not good, but I think banning porn is worse than porn.

I think our society has reasonable restraints on porn.

The effects of porn can be argued; what is not arguable is the benefit to all if posters would remove the 's' from 'https'.

OLO is apparently designed(??) to only respond to 'http', so, as a boon to all, please remove the surplus 's'.

Dear Ise Mise,

Why is the s there? What does it do?

To David f.

I don't see a connection between banning or allowing porn, and whether a country holds civil liberties for the people living there.

I had an intro to statistics class once where a teacher gave an Interesting example where correlation between two things does not mean causation. The example was that the there was a correlation between the rising sale of ice cream, and the increased rate of rapes. The teacher let us think about it before asking "what do you think is the underlying cause between both ice cream sales and rape." The answer was they both occur more on warmer days. Summer time was the underlying cause, not that the other two had anything to do with one another. The point of the lesson could be applied here. Don't assume a correlation (if it's really there) is confused with a causation between two things. There might be an underlying factor between both.

As for banning porn, I've already said that I don't think this is something that can be done easily, and all I would expect in today's world would be to try and successfully restrict it to adults. Even that might be too much to do because it would require a different way we handle the Internet and censoring, monitoring or restricting access to parts of it. Maybe all we can do is have those programs and apps that censor porn sites more available and known to parents. Make the burden easier for them.

On another note. The "s" on the https links I think ether means secure or security. I heard about it a while ago for a format that makes it harder to have viruses on the site your visiting, or it makes the site private so that a hacker isn't able to watch your key strokes or something. Sorry I don't remember which of those two that the "s" in the link is suppose to represent doing, but it was one of those I think. (Maybe both?)
