One might also go, yesyesyes, but the POINT isn't about the -science;- fine; so some people got it wrong. The POINT is, PR0N HURTS WOMEN. and children. who should always be grouped together, should women and children, in case we're all ever aboard ship and it starts to sink, or something.
ANYWAY. Alex here sums up my feelings best wrt the whole, the dire dastardly insidious influence of pr0n, as in biochemicals or not, it clearly ALTERS and INFLUENCES people in a very concrete and harmful way, sexually that is:
I think that maybe there is something to the idea that people are and can be influenced by ideas-not-their-own, and that some people will absorb certain cultural messages with those ideas. ("Hot sluts beg for cum on their face!" turns into "Men will like me if I let them cum on my face," etc.)
BUT, I think the solution to that is to teach self-esteem and sexual education early in life, both to boys and girls. If we teach girls how to distinguish the things they want from the things they think they should want, that goes far further than destroying the porn industry ever would. Same goes for boys. If we teach frank discussion, without all the silly giggly embarrassed-ness that tends to surround sex, I think the problem would shrink dramatically.
