has anyone noticed the connection between morality and pornography, well aside from the obvious. i mean every time there is a marked upswing by people wishing to enforce a particular brand of morals, there is a major jump in the pornographic industry?
the Victorian era, one of the most prolific in terms of erotica. The 80s saw the rise of the Meese Commission, Jerry Falwell, Jimmy Baker, Jimmy Swaggart and Pat Graham as well as the high points in terms of both popularity and profit, of Penthouse and Hustler.
here we are again a new generation and new campaigns to enforce a particular brand of morals and what do we have to go along with it? Mainstream of the porn industry. why? because sexuality is a natural part of the human experience. we are one of only two species that have sex for fun.
the more they you try to repress it, the more avenues it`s going to come pouring out. do you think that fact that sex is used to sell everything is accidental? no, the point of advertising to make us desire, to seek things that we don`t have.
i want to raise my point again about the level of hypocrisy about the Superbowl furore, how can you, in a televised event featuring advertisements for tablets for male enhancement and alcohol featuring half naked women honestly object to the presence of a naked breast.
and therein lies the problem with morality, it`s convenient and hypocritical.
i would love my children to abstain from sex until they`re married at 35, but i honestly know that`s not going to happen, so i`m going to give them as much information as i can to help them make the right decisions. i can`t live their lives for them and as much as i`d like to, i can`t protect them from everything but i can certainly try and i think the best form of protection i can give them is information.
abstinence education is not working.
“Three-quarters of newly reported STI cases are in those under 25 years of age. Sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhoea, chlamydia, and human papilloma virus are being spread at shocking rates, again, mainly among the young…”
we need to educate our children, quickly and correctly because this current wave of pseudo-morality is most certainly not the answer.
