    Do you agree?

    "If you believe that a pornographic book or film cannot affect you, then you must also say that Karl Marx's Das Kapital, the Bible, the Koran, and advertising have no effect on their readers or viewers."


    Food for thought.

    This is in regards to how the porn industry has affected us.

    I do agree with this. That the porn industry DOES affect us negatively.

    I agree that all of those CAN have no affect. That's not to say that I agree that they won't.

    I don't think reading the Koran would have any affect on me. And there are definitely parts of the Bible that have no affect on me.

    But everyone is different. Some will be affected, some won't.

    I agree entirely. Interested to see other people's opinions, too.

    I think you get out of them whatever you put into them. If you go to read the Bible to be inspired you will be, if you look at porn to be aroused, chances are that you will be. If you are just reading the Bible for something to do, or looking at porn for pictures, then they may not affect you.....

    It does affect our society as a whole.

    However, individuals CAN choose to not let it affect them.

    Im curious to see what others will say on this...

    I think everything has an effect on us. I believe everything you read, watch, hear, experience changes you in some way.

    I just don't think porn is negative

    Of course it effects us. I don't think that it is all negative though. Porn is positive for a lot of people for a lot of different reasons, just like it is negative for others. Same with Das Kapital, and the Bible, and the Koran...

    So porn is being compared to philosophy and religion, now?


    Sorry - but I just can't bring myself to compare those things.

    further - the Bible and other written books are, well, written BOOKS, not an industry.
