    I read the sources. The second and third sources talked about the negative effects pornography can have on individuals...
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    There are many negative things which affect an individual, or which can be perceived as negatively affecting an individual.

    Spending too much time on the Internet can do that. So can eating. They can be negative for individuals.

    I bet some people on here spend much more time on TypeC than they do watching/looking at porn!

    I know I do. I am not a big porn guy, but I watch from time to time. Just not for a particularly long amount of time.

    Yea, I know what you mean. The only time I ever see porn is either a. on accident, or b. one of my friends just HAS to show me something ha. Personally, I don't find it very stimulating.

    Is there some level of regulation that makes sense? Sure. Checking to see if all performers are of age makes a lot of sense given our approach to legal maturity. Regular checks for STDs make sense in the context of public health (porn stars don't just have sex with each other). Even age restrictions on purchasing make sense given that pornography can be very psychologically addicting, acting upon many of the same reward pathways used by illegal drugs.

    Beyond this? I don't think much restriction is necessary. There's not a huge divide in information between employer and employee; one would genuinely have to be willfully ignorant to not know going in that one will likely be required to perform sexual acts that one personally would not choose. Likewise, one will always be at risk for negative consequences of sexual activity. The laws currently governing employment relationships would apply well in this circumstance.

    For the record, I feel the same way about prostitution: limit the impact on public health, restrict to those who legally have the right of contract, and consider psychological impact. Beyond that, other restriction is unnecessary.
