Many people say pornography is immoral. Here are some of their arguments:

http://enlightenment.supersaturated.com/es...hyfeminism.html
This site also deals with pornography and it's supposed anti-feministic nature.


Here are some sites which say pornography is not immoral:

This site is a response to the above site.

So what do you think? Is pornography immoral, or ok as long as it's between consenting adults?

I am unable to edit, so here is my point of view on this matter:

Simply, I think pornography between consenting adults is acceptible. Naturally, if it's not consenting, it is violating a person and generally construed as rape. But if they both agree, and are willing to have sex/show their body on camera, who's to say they can't?

I look forward to reading your opinions :thumbsup:.

IF what a couple willingly do between themselves, including filming, remains just that, private, I think it's no one's business but their own.

I would think there would have to be a heck of a lot of long-term trust between them, though. Suspect many a young woman has lived to regret her decision if, after a break-up, it leads to her photo being shown all over the internet and elsewhere without her permission.

(I suppose that could work in reverse too - men having their photos spread all over the internet by a disgruntled ex-girlfriend or wife. In either case, one could only hope their kids don't go internet prowling some night and spot mommy or daddy - eek!).
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Most pornography, I suspect, is between complete strangers. They get paid to have sex on film. Nothing more, nothing less. There is rarely ever a relationship. Unless a couple decided to sell film they recorded of themselves having sex, so they could get a little extra cash.

Guess if no one watched porn or bought porn photos, etc, the people making it would decide it wasn't profitable? (I'm speaking of adults here, not children - suspect we'd agree on what should happen to parents that permit it with children or people who make it, in addition to the people who watch it - ick and huge boo and hiss!).

So far you are only talking about porn between adults in marriage.

Does this topic cover porn among teens and singles?

Do you only consider movies porn?

I'm referring to porn of adults only. Underage sex is a different matter. And it doesn't have to be movies; pictures are basically the same thing. And like I said, most porn has nothing to do with marriage.

First off underage porn or viewing of porn is illegal so its wrong. However if 2 (or more) consenting adults create it and it is viewed by willing parties then I dont see a problem with it.

Totally agree with your post 'MaraM' How many times making a video,has it come back to haunt the participants, later when their relationships go "Belly Up"?A very risky practice IMHO.

Your refering to someone making a porno, then later deciding to have a relationship, and their lover finds out they were in a porno? Yes, that can be very troubling. But if they want to do it, it's their choice.

So porn "stars" are just fine and dandy to you? Its just a job???

What do you think of that? Do you think posing naked in playboy or any other porn magazine or even doing a porn movie is okay?

Everything you have said is true. So why don't you tell me why you disagree? Also, I'm well aware aware of why it's not ok religiously, so can you tell me why it's not ok without religion?

I would love to have a friendly debate :thumbsup:.

Thing I wonder is: where does sex and experimenting with it stop and where does the pornography begin? I mean, who can judge if it's pure porn? I think it's a thin and subjective line.

My wife watches porn with me, but we both have to be in the mood. Weve never watched one yet, all the way to the end, without her getting turned on.
Where is the harm.??? The kids are out and we are on our own.
