I got a 3 page report assigned yesterday where I have to choose a topic and a side defend. We got 150 topics to choose from,one of which was pornography(Yes this is true,scouts honor). Naturally I chose porn. My thesis is that porn is good for the average person,it increases productivity,morally its right,ect. The problem is,I have to use facts,scientific research and poll and interview a group of people on what porn has done for them in their life. I need each persons: age,how often they use porn, all the negatives and positives of your "porn surfing experience", and your general opinion on pornography(spiritually/morally/other words,Being 18 doesnt matter ) Also any links to research that you think my report would benefit from would be appreciated as well.In short I'm a lazy tool and I want the pit to do as much as my homework as possible. Thanks in advance
Edit: http://www.quibblo.com/quiz/3q6CBDf/Porn here is an online survey,if thats easier for you
Nice boys don't play rock n' roll...Im not a nice boy and I never was

Lol'd at this topic. Does your school subscribe to the online "Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center"? It would have some good articles for/against porn. If you don't, I can give you the password to get in.

I'm glad you included this in your post, it makes mine a bit shorter.
You don't deserve our help
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

It's great! It's relieves stress, increases forearm strength (not a problem if you alternate hands), it stops me from raping people if I'm not getting laid, and it gives you good ideas to do during sex in the future.

well once you show your report everyone will know YOU watch porn.

why else would you choose it?

so then everyone will laugh at you while secretly feeling wierd because they know that THEY watch porn
#25
It's not my favorite thing on this earth, but I do love it.

I'm 16, and I watch porn once, maybe twice a week. (Family computer on the top floor, kinda hard to watch porn.)

It helps me relax if I've had a bad day, and keeps my hormones in check.

Alright, let's see if I answer all the questions.

I'm 17. My name is Travis and I live in West Virginia if you really need to know.
I look at something at least three times a day. S*it happens.
My "porn surfing experience" has lead to some...well...things I can't unsee. Negatives: I don't quite understand all the damn fetishes (especially foot...that one's just plain damn wierd), but I've come to know they exist. Positives: Porn for me is like the thing that is slowly rendering itself obsolete because the more I see, the less I care to see more. Plus when I finally got a girlfriend, I practically stopped watching porn all together. But with my gay ass friends send me links that I just HAVE to watch because...well...because.
Opinion of porn: it's ok. I see no moral problems thanks to the '60s which practically desensetized me (and alot of Americans...and humans). Spiritually...well I feel bad about it sometimes, but at least it's better than being a sexually repressed a-hole who lives with his mother until he's 42.

RESEARCH:
Megadeth > Metallica
Gibson > Fender
Randy Rhoads > Everybody

It gives kids their first proper sex ed. It's better visual aid than most in any sex ed book/leaflet (you must admit they are hilarious at times).

This is quite an interesting comment.

I imagine that many of his friends will see that option and think about doing it, but I should think most wouldn't, for the reasons you stated.

So, simply by choosing this subject, our friend will be making a BIG statement about himself. This could go one of two ways.

Either, he does it in a childish fashion, which will only embarrass him, not make for a good Thesis and certainly kill his chances with any chics in his year.

Or, he could take a mature approach to the subject. He could discuss its benefits, as well as the potential downsides and the objections that many people have over it.
He could point out, that Porn or "Adult Entertainment" as he should call it, grossed $12Billion in 2008.

There are good and bad points to most things and as with anything, drugs, alcohol, food; if the wrong people are paying too much attention, then it will do them harm.

There are some sick twisted individuals out there and so, there will be producers making porn for them, but this does not mean that they are bad people (given certain obvious considerations). Like wise, there is the run of the mill stuff, that can bring benefits to hetero sexual couples, gay couples etc, adding spice to their relationship that could otherwise fail.

And yes. It probably offers vastly better sex education of the actual mechanics, than any lesson at school. Assuming that they understand the basics of contraception, STI's etc and if you ignore all the love and relationship parts (lets face, most teenagers want to get laid, whether they are in love or in an alley.
They are always on about how it should be a fulfilling moment for both partners, but they expect you to go about it, in the missionary position, with no foreplay and all that good stuff that ACTUALLY makes it fulfilling!


And so on....

Tell them it educates kids in the ways of sex, and stuff like that.

Also, everyone watches it, and if they say they don't they are lying.

Did you just pull that out of your ass?

If i watch porn, i never really feel like working or anything. Plus, the thing about morals is that they're subjective. What may seem right to you wont seem right to someone else

That's been my experience too. Couldn't get enough of it at first but now it's just plain boring.
