    Some members of this forum have an extreme aversion to porn. Feminists have suggested that porn causes women to be objectified and therefore increases sex crimes. A recent study shows just the opposite:
    That's a pretty powerful effect. Increase internet access 10% for a 7% drop in rape. Almost one to one. But, you might say, increased internet use doesn't necesarily mean increased use of porn! Maybe they're just surfing the web instead of out commiting crimes. Well, what about this:

    Another thing about this study is that it belies the old myth about rape not being about sex. If rape isn't about sex, why should giving someone another outlet for their sexual urges decrease rape?

    I've always believed that rape was a crime of violence and porn is a sexual outlet. Why would there be any correlation?

    Yes, but rape is sexual violence i.e. it's more about sex than violence.

    Well the participants in pornographic material have a psychological deficiency that may manifest itself into other areas of their lives. Same can be said of people obsessively looking at it, many are capable of rape in worst case scenario or just develop an abnormal outlook on women in general. Take your pick.

    Of course there is a correlation. Rape is not always violent, to say there is no sexual component is fictitious.

    If you read his report, even he admits there are a lot of issues that cannot be resolved in the study. For example the fact that there are such a high percentage of unreported rapes in the US, and the reasons behind the victim's not reporting to the police.

    I don't know ...seems to show almost conclusively that if men get all or most of the sex that they want or need, then the world is a happier place.

    Perhaps this will coax more women to put out willing to men ....and more often, too!

    WOMEN! DON'T GET RAPED ....GIVE IT AWAY!

    Do they? I haven't noticed.

    It certainly objectifies women. Agree?

    I'd say it's more about violence than sex.

    Of course there is a sexual component.

    But the only rape that isn't violent is where the victim capitulates out of fear of violence.

    I'd have to agree with what JamesR posted. Probably for the first time.

    Most porn objectifies men more than women.

    Notice how the camera seldom lingers on the male face?

    Regardless, sexuality becomes more objectified as one gets closer to orgasm, for both men and women.

    That's because most porn is made by men, for men, and men are more interested in looking at women than looking at men.

    Yes, and what could be more objectifying than being nothing more than an erection with a body attached to it.

    Notice the cover art on DVDs, usually a big picture of the star's face...a women 99% of the time.

    Did you think it would? lol

    Funny because I just watched a show last week. They had women on who were brutally raped by their husbands. Most of these men were heavily into porn. A lot of these men wanted to do the same things they were watching and when their wives were not interested they raped them.
    They were also belittling them by saying stuff like...why don't you look like these women? Trying to get them to dress up like their favorite porn stars...calling them all kinds of names...expecting them to just drop to their knees whenever they wanted. They were completely abusive.

    I have to say, that's a very good point.

    A lot of sex-addicts use porn, only to resort to more dangerous things... its a bit like the psychology of drugs in many respects.
