I started this thread ironically, but after watching some ted talks on human trafficking, and the role porn has in that....
yeah, time to criminalize pimps and anyone who produces porn.

"the monetisation of sex" is hardly anything new & has been going on long before the post traditional world, nice euphemism, a touch of carnal accountancy? Bartering for sex is often remarked to be the oldest form of commerce amongst humans and other primates.

Are we getting jaded with pornography threads ? Pornography threads no longer dominate this subsection of the Forum like they did in the halcyon days of erotica & sexual exploitation.

Of course the monetization of sex has always existed, but not on this mass-level. If people want to pretend porn isn't bad for you that's fine, I'm just amazed that people will go so far to protect the right to be a degenerate all in the name of being free.

I've been guilty of porn use, not trying to pontificate. It's just not good. Some things are good. Some things aren't.

That was how AIDS started, wasn't it?

I if bartering for sex was the cause for AIDS then it would have occurred much earlier in history. I'm unsure of the genesis of AIDS but ahead of promiscuity & pornography I'll nominate..
Global population risen to such a level that humans live in great numbers in equitorial regions in squalor due to the inhumane way Capitalism distributes the wealth created.. creating conditions for adaptive microbial life forms to jump host/victim species etc.

People engaging in high risk activities, intravenous drug use or casual sexual liasons and don't use effective risk management strategies.. eg condoms or bleaching & sterilisation methods with hypodermic syringes etc.

The degree of travel we engage in.

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic. HIV is believed to have transfered to human from monkeys (who host the similar SIV, Simian virus). Though the likely vector for transfer was so called 'Bush meats' not sex. His joke remains fairly funny.

I can never tell when Octavious is being sarcastic or satirical unless it's blindingly obvious. It's a problem from always respectfully taking him seriously.
Still I'm glad the suggestion that pornography caused AIDS is dismissed.

Whatever one thinks of pornography, it's popularity cannot be denied. The pornography industry's greatest challenge is the overwhelming number of amatuers producing pornography & erotica and disseminating it on the internet thingy where it's freely available.
I'm interested in how conservative libertarians who have conservative Christian beliefs view pornography. Useful for development of skills in convoluted logic ?

I suspect tube sites with free porn uploaded from other sources are the biggest challenge.

Amateurs are not making the bulk of these uploads, but professionals who have their work re-uploaded may struggle to find their usual revenue stream (ie customers accessing content behind a paywal).

Many cam sites exist where sex workers do live shows. And I suspect these have much better safety and some actual revenue sharing (unlike the tube sites) offering a different product (with audience interaction and occasional participation).

I think you are only partially correct at best Orathaic. Prior to the internet thingy and other new technologies very few producers of pornography had the ability to distribute their product widely. New technologies have made it possible for anyone with a smartphone to film and post pornography. So there's been an incredible increase in the potential number of producers and distributors of pornography. Plus the distinction between amateur and professional is no longer so easy to define.

Who was that clever wind~up artist who would construct those amusing posts that start with a reasonable proposition then step by step lead to an outrageous conclusion ? I can but offer a pale imitation of his more brilliant wind`ups:
A chap I know gave up erotica and onanism and took up a fundamentalist religion so he would feel better about himself. After several months of God bothering abstinence his sexual frustration peaked & in a highly confused state he misinterpreted (insert appropriate passage from Bible or Koran) and....
I decided to delete the next two paragraphs... I was in enough trouble with the Almighty Mods last August.
I was trying to get to a happy ending where the poor blighter was now happily joined in a de~facto relationship with a prison guard in one of those new fangled same sex partnerships. But I just don't have the talent to "pull it off" Boom Boom.

I was going for, transformation from harmless heterosexual who privately indulged in erotica and onanism whilst holding down a good job and paying taxes to dangerous criminal incarcerated for twenty years at huge cost to other taxpayers who is also a crazed religious zealot in a non conformist new fangled same sex partnership with his prison guard. I was just way too ambitious with my aspirations and definitely underdone in the talent department.

Well new fangled in the sense that in our Bwave New World these types of relationships are accepted and celebrated instead of being unfairly treated as shameful.or criminal. Well at least in civilised nations. There are still those backward & bigoted nations like Russia and Iran who oppress those who are not strictly heterosexual.

Good news from Australia, one State, Queensland is introducing legislation to make "gender correction therapy" (where pompous idiots try to force persons identifying as LGBT etc to return to orthodox heterosexuality) a criminal offence. Other states will inevitably follow that lead and no doubt enact similar legislation.

The attraction of Porn... 2037(+?) views and only 38(+?) posts on this thread...
Hmmmm, there's possibly a fair bit of voyerism going on ?
