Internet Pornography

Much publicity is given about banning internet pornogrphy.The anxiety is about children getting exposed to it.Looking after children is the duty of the parents .State need not take over this responsibility.
There is no scientific proof that pornography has an adverse effect on mental health or morals of the community.Incidence of sexual abuse and rape are very less in countries like Denmark and Sweeden where porngraphy is rampant.In fact the incidence of sex crimes diminished when pornogaphy was made freely available.
In fact, if somebody is very sensitive to pornography he must take action to ban Chulavaggapali and Mahavaggapali of Vinaya Pitaka if Tripitaka.These scriptures explicitly describes sexual perversions .
It goes to say thes activiies were going on during Buddhas time.He did not try to ban them.He asdvised his descilpes to keep off these activiies.

Your post has no basis whatsoever.

1.) The meta-analysis done by M. Allen, M., Emmers, T., Gebhardt, L. and Giery, M.A., 1995 showed that exposure to pornography, with or without depictions of violence, increased acceptance of rape myths.

2.) In another meta-analysis conducted by Allen and his colleagues on 33 experimental studies, representing a total of 2,040 participants, pornography exposure was associated with a small increase in nonsexual aggression

3.)Marshall, Seidman, and Barbaree (1991) found that pre-exposure to videotaped depictions of rape increased sexual arousal to rape in a subsequent experimental session

These websites often have videos of rape. Rape is a problem...if porn induces become a problem aswell.

However I do not condemn porn, I am merely making a case against what you had posted.
