    Default Internet Pornography.

    I do not agree with internet pornography in its current state because i believe it is not being properly policed.

    quesstions.

    Do you think parents can ever properly protect their children without more government intervention?

    How would you police internet pornography to protect children?

    Should women dress in pigtails and school clothes on these sites?

    Should the entrance age of emplyees within the business be twenty one?

    there is also a piece on my blog if you wish to comment their.

    When parents don't want their children to watch such stuff in internet, they should keep an eye on them while they are sitting in front of PC. There are software tools to filter such sites, though I don't know how effective they are.

    On the other hand I don't see why pornography is supposed to be dangerous for teenagers. I mean, it is totally unrealistic that a pubertarian teenager will be totally isolated from the topic sex until he is adult in these times, since sex is in TV etc. all the time. And before they get pregnant because of lack of knowledge about this topic, they better learn about it early on.

    There should be strong regulation against child pornography on the net.

    As for everything else, I don't think there should be restrictions on content, sites, or platforms on the internet. And broadband providers shouldn't be able to make those restrictions on open access either. Net Neutrality, basically.

    I think it's dangerous for teenagers because pornography promotes a picture of sexuality that isn't in line with the reality of a real woman's sexuality and the complexity of a long-term sexual relationship with a partner. It doesn't educate as to the value of your body or how to build up to the long-term most sexually satisfying relationship that fulfils both the man and the woman's needs within a trusting and safe relationship. It's not about isolating teenagers from the topic of sex per se and just the biological part of it. This is partly why I am personally against pornography in general and believe it should be restricted completely.

    That may be a fair point, but we know what effect restriction usually has. Restrict something and it becomes only more interesting especially to teenagers. They will get their pornography by some ways anyway when they want to find it, and they will want it.

    Making less of a drama about it will probably in my opinion have a less dangerous effect in the end. Not trying to prevent the access while making clear that it does not or should not go on like that in the real life would probably have a better effect.

    The interwebs have finally brought an end to Porn In The Woods.

    It's all so predictable and on tap, these days.

    All the innocence has went out of porn. What's the world coming to. Ahem.

    I know what you mean, but I think the thing here is to educate teenagers about sex properly and not to restrict the issue of sex and sexuality. That can only really be done within the family.

    IMO, restricting pornography is more about the general environment of the society and culture so that it's as sexually healthy as possible, so that the individuals within it have a better chance of developing a healthy sexuality, so I see the role of government restriction in that sense, but it's ultimately the responsibility of parents to educate their children. I don't think any centralised government can replace the role of the family. If the parents have a healthy and aware sexuality and care to teach their children the same, the children should not normally then have a taste for pornography. It would be antithetical to what they want, i.e. a love/sex relationship with a woman/man they truly desire and love in many senses. I mean, they might have a look out of curiosity, but they're not going to be trying to create the kind of picture in their life that pornography typically promotes. They would just find it nasty.

    Beyond that, it's the individual person's responsibility to choose their way once they're no longer children. Of course, if a person really wants pornography they can go find it/make it.

    I'm of the opinion that these questions are essentially prying for the fact that porn on the net is the cause of problems like rape and paedophilia.

    I refuse to accept that.

    Anyone who did not already have a psychological predisposition (I'm not talking about inborn traits here, I'm talking about before they watched porn) to rape or be a paedophile was always going to rape and be a paedophile, regardless of the porn.

    Moreover, young women dressing up as schoolgirls: that's a fetish, a fantasy. Those who play it out probably didn't even need the porn to do so.

    And at eighteen, you're a fully grown adult. You should be allowed to do what you want. So the entry age should not be twenty-one; it should either remain at eighteen or be brought down to eighteen in states and countries where it is at twenty-one.

    Concerning children and porn, I was twelve when I discovered it. And it was a natural occurrence. Children don't just happen upon porn - they search for it. And if they're searching for it, it's making them curious, and their curiosity should be given free reign WITHIN THE CYBER WORLD.

    Besides, parents who want to bring their children up differently can use the site barriers and internet security stuff that comes with any browser. The state needn't further intervene in our lives.

    Thumbs down Transparency and the Brothel-without-walls

    We now all live in the electric brothel-without-walls.

    This has the advantage of making the brothel transparent.

    In the brothel-without-walls, we can now all see the role of women is to be paid to cater to men.

    And the transparency enables the Australian Federal Police to hunt and track paedophiles on the internet and bring them before our Criminal Courts.

    So in the literate world, the brothel was hidden behind its walls. In the electronic world, the brothel has become transparent.
