"Sex and nudity are completely natural"

Pornography isn't just about sex and nudity. In many cases it is often a case of "get in the shot and do some dirty scenes," which can go far beyond just "sex and nudity." One common example is abuse; pornography is often filled with abuse, both physical and mental. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure that calling a girl a "whore or slut" while doing her head in to the point of causing her pain isn't simply "sex" or "nudity." On top of that, it certainly is not natural. Note: this is an occurring example that does not necessarily happen all the time, but it does happen. In fact, one thing that many people find hard to believe is that rape is often posted online with the intent of being viewed as simple pornography.

"unlike the graphic violence many of them see on television nearly every day."

As you would now note from the above text in my first paragraph, violence can also occur in pornography.

Consider this: a young boy (let's call him Billy) at the age of 11 watches a porno involving a woman getting raped by three men. The men are screaming at her as they rape her, and they are physically harming her as they do so. Billy does not want to ask his parents, so he decides to ask his friends. His friends do not understand what Billy is talking about, so Billy shows them the video. Soon enough, Over fifty kids of Billy's age are watching rape videos, who are all now gaining a negative vantage point when it comes to knowing about sex. Even if Billy came clean and asked about the video, that would not help the situation that now involves over fifty other children of Billy's age.

Rape isn't natural, and some Porn contains rape.

If anyone can view it, children can view it.

I don't know what porn's like - I don't watch it.

The debate failed to differentiate between pornography and violent pornography.

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure that calling a girl a "whore or slut" while doing her head in to the point of causing her pain isn't simply "sex" or "nudity."

What you are describing would be classified as 'language' and 'violence' by the MPAA. Language is also a common element in our society.

On top of that, it certainly is not natural.

What is unnatural about the body or bodily functions?

For the remainder, I direct you to this study:

http://www.tamiu.edu/~cferguson/pornography.pdf

The results of the Meese report must be taken with a grain of salt - the writers hid the fact that regular porn does not cause aggression.

P.S. If I am not mistaken, violent porn is illegal. Thus they oughtn't watch it one way or the other.

Even if it means mentally scarring them for life?

If a kid watches a rape video that is labeled as "pornography," that would be ok? And you would allow that to continue?

Perhaps to, say, a 16 year old who was fully educated about sex, but what about 10 - 12 year old kids with little to no knowledge of what sex is?

Well have you ever searched for porn and came up with a rape video? If you did it was most likely staged, and quite obviously might I add.

A kid wouldn't end up watching a rape video labeled under pornography unless he/she payed for it or was really trying hard to find a rape video. A kid of 10-12 only knows of very simple things when looking for pornography. Such as sex, intercourse, fucking, and essentially simple words. So yes I am still on my side.

I say YES.Youngsters can`t have sex but at least can masturbate on these films.But i don`t think its good for adults.

SMCdeBater(242) Disputed

A little backwards?

Masturbation shouldn't be existent with young children (not talking about mid-aged teens), because they are still being introduced to love. A schoolyard crush is as far as it would need to go, they don't need to know about the nature of sex until they are old enough to understand and control it. If you teach a girl about sex too soon, there is a chance that she will grow into a sex addict, and will possibly end up working as a prostitute for several years. The same can easily be said for boys.

"But i don't think its good for adults."

Care to explain?

Adults are mature enough to understand what sex is, children can't grow up thinking that pornography is the basis of which sex is made. I don't see how it can be good for kids, but not good for adults.

Depending on the age masturbation just isn't possible. Their reproductive organs aren't mature enough to produce ejaculate.

listen its a topical issue but regardless of your view its impossible to stop someone watching it. im not gonna lie that button which says "by clickin enter i confirm i am over18" is not much of a deterant.

in my view its only natural at that age to have urges and this is a natural outlet for it

If they want to watch porn, let them. If they want to watch violent or unusual porn, let them as well.

What is important is that children be taught the difference between fantasy and reality. Porn is a depiction of fantasy sex, not a depiction of real-life sex. The participants in porn movies are only acting, and they take many safety and health precautions that happen off-camera. As long as children understand these concepts - and children can be taught these things; they're not stupid - porn won't hurt them any more than any other form of entertainment.

Look, arguing yes for this debate has a problem. Kids shouldn't watch porn just because they are missing out on sex life or should be entitled to see how sex works. Since we mention "youngsters" in the title, we do not focus simply on teenagers. Would you want a 10 year old boy who didn't know anything about sex watching a 26 year old prostitute get banged by some 20 year old guys? This is one case, just one, out of the millions that occur with children of a similar age.

This kind of exposure sends the wrong kind of message to kids of a younger age. Some kids who see this kind of thing before learning about sex think that what they see in porno films is what sex is all about. Even worse, what if certain people in the video are abused by, or are abusive to their sexual partner(s)?

It is an obvious fact that sooner or later that children who reach the teenage stage in their lives will develop hormonal curiosities and will undoubtedly act upon them. Self control will be present, but it won't be dominant. So, teenagers are acting upon these feelings because they have learned how to, and since Mom and Dad haven't been doing practical lessons with the child, they are probably getting the idea of what to do after they've seen how it's done in pornography films. This is so common these days that it is considered a natural part of life. The problem is that the line of age where youngsters of a certain age can or can't watch porn is drawing back, meaning that younger kids are being exposed to a lot more than they should.

I say no not because I think pornography is inappropriate for all adolescents, but that specifically younger adolescents shouldn't be getting exposed to it as they have been. So before anybody decides to argue that I want pornography banned or some BS like that, please make a heavy note of the above sentence.

Why shouldn't they witness it if they are curious and decide to go looking? It's a natural part of life and stigmatising it leads to hangups and psychological issues. Maybe it will inspire them to try a fantasy in real life.

We are capable of empathising and learning. Violence in pornography would inspire BDSM or dominance and subserviance roleplaying, but that's where it ends - roleplaying. Various kinds of pornography can help youths figure out what they like.

Typical rant used to justify the idea that people who watch television cannot think for themselves and will be forced to repeat what they see. It was used to incite fear against rock and role, rap, video games, television, and now pornography. It never occurs to you that people who act on it have a psychological proclivity. If a person watches a BDSM film, and acts on it, it's because they have a proclivity, not because they thought "gee, I should try that, looks interesting."

Pornography helps create a safe environment to explore your sexual tastes. Would you rather these adolescents and young ones were learning about hardcore fetishes from their friends and siblings, firsthand?

You should be a bit more specific about the term youngsters.

I'd say anybody under the age of 15 shouldn't really be watching porn. Its never going to happen though, because kids know how to use the internet, most the time better than their parents - which means they'll be jacking off about 10 times a day. They wouldn't be doing that if they had restricted access to the pornside of the internet. FACT.

I'm pretty sure I've wasted 100million hours of my life jacking off when I could have been doing something a lot more productive. Maybe that's why girls are doing better in education than boys. Because boys flick over to porn every other hour while girls will be studying.

There are countries where they have extremely limited access to porn. The kids are totally fine. Infact they tend to be better (but thats another story) They're normal kids... not horny teens who can't keep it in - which has now been accepted as normal in our societies.

Porn also raises the standards. For both men and women. I'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing - but it does raise the standards. I guess the argument is for those who don't meet those standards, their relationship is over. Instead of focusing on whether or not they're good partners people check how good they are in bed.

Pressurises everybody into having sex.

The list goes on to be honest. I can't be bothered to continue.

I'm in two minds here.

Most regular pornography (in particular, the genre known as 'Gonzo porn') shouldn't be viewed by people below their teens because it gives them a totally false view of human sexuality: it treats women (and to a lesser extent, men) as sexual playthings, teaches forms of sex which are painful or bizarre (anal sex, deep throat oral sex, double penetration, fisting, etc.) and, as a result, may be prone to giving young minds a completely false idea of sex, and is completely lacking in the human emotion of love.

On the other hand, if it were possible - a big 'IF', in my opinion - to make pornography (call it erotica if you want) which portrayed human sexuality in a the context of a relationship based upon love, trust, etc. then it shouldn't hurt anyone. Indeed, it could even be used in lessons on sex education in schools.
