Is internet porn ruining our next generation? Is censorship the answer?

These scholars and experts are at the forefront of this research. Apologies but you will have to listen to at least one of these clips to get what this O.P. is all about.

Is it possible that in sexual matters, the right wing conservatives might be ahead of the left wing in their thinking?

If not, then what should the left do to help us save our children from the indoctrination via internet porn into unhealthy and unwanted sexual habits? Or have them not be able to perform without porn?

I consider myself left wing but I think we may be going a tad far and should move to the right on this issue due to things like you saw in the clips above as well as what is shown in this clip below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=aQIBpGu5I6E

At one time, parents would have closed any shop that gave access to the young to porn. Yet today, parents do not seem to care and as more and more young children get cell phones, parental prohibition will be impossible.

Have parents forgotten how to parent and are men and women willing to allow the status quo to ruin the sexuality of the next generation?

"Censorship reflects society's lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime." - Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart

To date, I have lived by the above quote. I do not lack confidence in our adult population but see this issue as more of a medical one and I am willing to censure for our children's sake.

Some Eastern countries have used censorship to gain control of what their children can access. Should the West do the same?

Are our children worth it?

Parents already have the choice to censor. The can limit what can and can't be viewed online and on phones. They can buy feature phones that don't have such capabilities and keep computers that their children have access to in areas that would mostly prohibit viewing pornography. They can have discussions with their children about sex, sexuality, and the responsibilities and consequences that come along with it rather than letting the world do that for them.

It does seem many are fighting a losing battle in general at this point because a lot of younger people are coming in a way that makes it difficult for them to interact in a healthy way with others face to face, and even in their chosen medium of online communication they lack tact. Having more and more of a generation growing up not only socially disconnected but hyper-sexualized and with a mindset that sex is about their own pleasure and quick gratification certainly won't make things better.

AsbestosFlaygon
Parents can always use parental control software to monitor and filter/block adult content from prying eyes of their children. There are various free and paid options in the market. The real problem is majority of parents don't bother at all about their child/children's surfing habits.

Surtur
All I will say is..of all the things ruining the next generation, porn in any form falls low on the list.

Omega Vision
Short answer, nope.

Long answer: there is no long answer, "nope" suffices.

Surtur
Plus as has been said, you can indeed censor what your kids have access to, at least in your own home. Which is the way it should be, you let parents set their own guidelines for their specific needs instead of saying "censor it for everyone because kids might see it".

That would be like saying "ban all booze because kids might somehow get ahold of some".

Ok just already 5 seconds into the video you can't take the guy seriously. He also says things that make no sense. Men and told what not to do, but not told what they "should" do? That seems false to me.

Growing up I was always told what a kid should and shouldn't be doing. Later on it was "if you are a man you must get a job and then get a wife and then have kids and do it in that order preferably".

unhealthy and unwanted sexual habits?

and what exactly is a "unhealthy/ unwanted sexuall habit"

"ruin the sexuality of the next generation?" how the shit do you ruin someone's sexuallity.

the next generation has access not only to porn but ALOT of other things aswell on the internet, they are chosing porn (which does tend to set unrealistic behaviors and traits) because it suits there sexual urges or curiousity. they have access to addvanced and simple laws of physics, great works of literature and so on but like most of us the next generations views what it WANTS to watch not what it may NEED to

Genesis-Soldier
anyway devices can be censored in what materials are viewed. schools have such programs and there are free online programs that teach and show adults how to monitor or censor devices and sites relating to porn

Surtur
Of course we also have to be realistic here..the kids will reach a certain age where you won't be able to control what they see on the internet. You don't need to be a genius with computers to get around parental controls. On top of that you have no idea what they might see if they are at a friends house or something.

The internet has changed everything. In the past parents had a lot more control of the kind of things their child would be exposed to..but that has changed.

Sadly, much too often children and even adults think that pornography shows what sex is like. Perhaps better and more open sex education could mitigate that.

Bashar Teg
we need to go back to the good old days of scrambled porn on cable tv. these kids need to learn the virtue of patience.

Surtur
Thing is..it's not always a fantasy played out by actors. The age of the porn star is over. What is in now? Amateur porn. Not porn stars, but real people posting videos of themselves online. Not for profit and the videos don't look professional. But you see real people. I prefer those videos to the other porn, it's nice to see real women instead of woman with double D **** and men with 10 inch long hard ons.

Here is my thing: I don't even know how porn stars still make money. Those amateur videos I talked about you can get for free from a multitude of sites. You can even get normal porn for free from sites. So who the hell is paying for porn?

Bashar Teg
i dont mind amateur porn, but i hate...despise...LOATH poor cinematography in porn. especially when the screen is like 80% man-crotch because of incompetent photography. i believe some degree of professionalism will always be in demand.

Surtur
Well yeah, but you can find a lot of videos where there is no incompetent photography and you aren't just starring at the back of a dudes ass and balls as he bangs some woman.

But I mean hell: www.fuq.com

Both professional and amateur videos there, 100% free.

Genesis-Soldier
yeah man there is ALOT of free porn out there and some sites actually have competitions and what not for ametures to upload their videos


but back to the topic at hand, the access people have with the internet is alot and you will often see advertisements for a range of things both seually explicit and other

Surtur
Well you can never shelter your child completely from certain things and the more you try the more they will rebel against that.

Truth is if you raise your kid right then porn won't really cause them any harm. If it bothers someone though then like I said there are ways to control it. There are methods to do this for free, but if it really bothers someone there are also programs they can purchase that are more difficult to circumvent.

"No and no" to succinctly answer the OP's questions. I think anyone convinced otherwise is being atrociously paranoid. Censorship can't prevent dumb parenting, which is the actual cause of any perceived problems for which porn is sometimes used as a scapegoat. But parental controls exist for plenty of things, and also exist in the world of common sense and knowing what your children are being exposed to and putting it in the proper perspective when they are ready for it.

Genesis-Soldier
then how do you judge bad parenting for its values on porn?

"you must never watch porn!" or something like that is obviously not going to work.

"you must never watch porn!" or something like that is obviously not going to work.

You're looking for some measurable variable, but it's a flawed premise. There isn't a "good parent formula" but it's obvious when you see it.

Talk to any teacher, for example. I was one briefly, so I can speak from some experience. Literally the only thing you need to ensure that a kid is going to do alright in school is that the parents care about their child's success. If they're invested, the kid is fine. If not...that's when you get problems. It sounds simplistic, but it holds alarmingly true. Of course it won't ensure straight A's or a life without problems, but I can guarantee you that 99% of "problem" kids or those failing classes come from an apathetic home.

So it's the same type of thing. An investment in your child's well-being, and actions that reflect that investment, takes care of most problems.

I wouldn't actually count (viewing) porn as a major source of corruption, either, but that's a different matter. In terms of its ability to negatively influence children, there are far bigger fish to fry. I won't use a flawed "I watched porn in HS argument and I turned out fine" argument, because that assumes any kind of influence in the first place. Nearly all HS-age boys I knew saw porn at some point, and you can go back to nudey mags pre-internet for the same. And its affect on us as people was basically null.

This has nothing to do with poor parenting as few of us parent at all. We let schools, the media and peers do it for us.

I think you're entirely wrong. Porn is no more responsible for the world's ills than hundreds of demonstrably, provably worse problems. And cases where it is responsible are statistically marginal, amidst a society that, by any measurable variable, is safer and more moral than past generations, not to mention more sexually liberated.

Him being a teacher makes it worse because some of the shit he says doesn't make any sense. Men are only told what not to do, but not what to do? Has that been YOUR experience growing up? Because it sure as heck was not mine. It was a mixture of both really: don't do this, do that, etc. etc. Maybe it was because I was sent to a Catholic school, but we were told all the time what we should and should not be doing and I don't mean that in the sense of "don't talk during class".

Also isn't it a teachers job to make sure he teaches in a way everyone can understand? Isn't that the point of a teacher? You just had me flash back to junior year in my Trig class. Math teacher was explaining some shit and asks how many understood. 4 kids out of like 25 raise their hands to show they understood. What happens? Dude moved on to the next chapter in the Trig book and began teaching something else. Then later in the term he acts surprised a bunch of people failed the test. I hated that guy, he wouldn't let you leave to go to the bathroom unless you agreed to let him give you a 1 hour detention. I almost pissed my pants waiting for class to end because I wasn't going to give the prick the satisfaction.

DL Stop harming your children then.

I agree with Digi when he stated that apathetic parents cause most of children's problems. I protect my children from things that aren't appropriate for them, and spend a lot of my free time interacting with them in areas from schoolwork, to playtime, and chores.

My son is twelve and still asks me to read him bedtime stories because I've been doing it consistently almost every night since he was five. I started that for two reasons, one for some bonding time, and two because he was having difficulties with sight words. Seven years later he's (I'm) buying books like Stan Lee's 'Zodiac' and opting to read for entertainment.

He owns no cell phone and doesn't ask for one either but I don't use one so he has me as an example there. Our conversations aren't interrupted constantly by texts and calls that can't be ignored. He has a lot of what most kids are severely deprived of... His daddy's undivided attention.

He's aware of porn and tells me that he's heeded my advice to avoid porn until he's mature enough to not consider himself a kid in any way. He enjoys being a kid and I simply explained to him that porn is extreme adult education/entertainment that removes childhood innocence and replaces it with adult thoughts that can distort a child's perception about what sex really is.

Parenting is the most important influence in a child's life. Porn is just one of the million things that can distract adults from doing that parenting. More destructive than porn, is the cell phone fixation that I see so many people teaching their young children.

yeah i guess so, good point with the well being example. but you as people would have been effected in some ways. perhaps not as a majority but there are those reading the nudie mag columns and what not who are probably given some bullshit ideals on how things work in a social sense between the intamacy of boys and girls... or even gay/ lesbians relationships (this is Back then thou)

How does one even define "porn" these days? Remember, you can type "vagina" into wikipedia and see pictures of one lol. Same with boobies, the "breast" entry even shows before and after pictures for breast implants lol. This is meant to be educational, but could be used as porn, especially if you're younger when literally seeing any boob is worth it lol.

So should wiki be censored? Christ almighty if you type "blowjob" into you get cartoon drawings of a woman sucking dick. A picture of a dude blowing another dude. Even a video clip of frickin bats blowing other bats.

"Female bats perform fellatio to increase copulation time. This species is the only non-primate known to exhibit this behaviour."

That is *not* something I ever needed to be made aware of, but oh well I wouldn't censor it. F*ck you to the person who put the bat video clip on there though lol.

Well no, I meant stuff like what I mentioned about wikipedia. If you type in "vagina" you see multiple pictures. One is of a woman actually spreading her pussy apart. Another is just a close up of a moist vagina lol.

It is there not for porn, but just to show what a vagina is since it is the vagina page. But I'm betting some parents wouldn't want their kids looking at pictures of hairy bushes and stuff(which yes is also there lol)

Watching porn can turn into an addiction. And when it does, it has the potential to ruin your sexuality and your ability to have a healthy relationship in the long-term.

FYI:-

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3196809/It-induces-addiction-makes-men-hopeless-bed-discover-porn-affect-BRAIN.html

Censorship and Awareness - both can be useful in tackling porn addiction.

MythLord
Anything can be an addiction, assuming a lack of moderation. Any functioning, normal human being can watch porn without becoming addicted to it. If you're watching porn and you find that you can't stop, it's likely you've always been sexually frustrated or crazed and since you just can't get any you seek other routes to... relieve yourself, I guess.

It can be argued that Porn is adding to the factor for declining Birth rates at least in the more Modern or Progressive Cultures. Like look at Europe where some places have an almost Zero % birth rate.

You can even get normal porn for free from sites. So who the hell is paying for porn? The ones who are willing to pay are willing to pay a lot. Think of it like a way more expensive micro payment system. The free stuff makes you aware of some obscure fetish you never would have known you were into until you see it. Now you find more free stuff but as time goes on you exhaust that especially if it's a particular character you're hooked on. Then you discover that the new 45 minute movie that has exactly what you're looking for for 75.99! I'm satisfied with the free stuff but I used to buy it when the internet was dial-up.

Sexuality and morality are intertwined with emotions to create a confusing definition of what's right and wrong sexually that changes from individual to individual. One thing we can be sure of is that adults that are in sexual relationships with little children or purposely exposing children to sexually explicit material that they are physically, mentally, and emotionally unequipped to digest are guilty of an immoral crime against humanity at the least.

Neglect in all forms is far more pervasive than ever before and in my opinion facebook is more dangerous than porn to the next generation. Parents, usually mothers, are more attentive to their phone than their kids. I still don't carry a personal phone, and somehow my life goes on. I've also never received a text on my personal phone while in the middle of talking with my kids about whatever outside of the house. Inside the house is where I talk on the phone. Outside I talk to other humans directly. The disappearance of that habit is what is deteriorating societies morality most rapidly. People are detached from others more so than ever before.

I do not like censorship either but recognize that it can have value depending on the harm allowed to happen if something is not censored or prohibited.

Imagine though what would happen if we removed the censorship and prohibitions on dynamite.

If porn damage grows, we might have to censor it. We seem to be dealing with the harm so far but our addiction even to cell phones is growing and those in the know are suggesting we be careful in what we are doing to ourselves.

Watching porn can turn into an addiction. And when it does, it has the potential to ruin your sexuality and your ability to have a healthy relationship in the long-term.

Censorship and Awareness - both can be useful in tackling porn addiction.

Good info. Thanks.

Anything can be an addiction, assuming a lack of moderation. Any functioning, normal human being can watch porn without becoming addicted to it. If you're watching porn and you find that you can't stop, it's likely you've always been sexually frustrated or crazed and since you just can't get any you seek other routes to... relieve yourself, I guess.

I take it you did not bother following the links provided.
