LA Times on Porn - Interesting if Misleading

April 23, 2005

COLUMN ONE
Just the Facts of Life Now
*Pornography is so common in the Digital Age that teens see it as 'part of the culture.' But if it's corrupting them, the data don't show it.

The article goes on to say that there is no data. The subhead suggests that there might be data, but that the data shows that kids are not corrupted by it, or that at least the data is neutral. Very misleading

Beyond that, the article is interesting. It shows clearly that our kids are very involved in the culture of porn, and common sense will tell you, even if the data supposedly doesn't, that having preteens and teens look at kids and adults doing every kind of sexual activity imaginable (and some that isn't), can't be a good thing. From my research, and other articles previously in this blog, the effects of porn are extremely damaging to men who view it, and to women who are around those men. Check out the earlier posts.

I guess this means advertising doesn't have any effect either ... I mean if this is true then Nintindo, Sony, and Microsoft are wasting their advertising budgets, it just doesn't work.
