So, this is a problem? I am not sure why anyone makes such a big deal out of it. If you want to look at nudity on the net so what, at least you aren't paying a prostitute or cheating with the neighbor. Now if you cannot control yourself around the opposite sex then that is a problem or if you spend thousands of dollars on it. If it is free, then it isn't a problem. Can someone explain to me why it would be a problem?

In this case, it's the perceived addiction to porn that's the issue. this ministry simply makes itself available to people who feel they may be powerless over porn.

better than trying to legislate morality, IMO....

I guess I just have a hard time believing someone could be addicted to porn on the internet. I see drug and alcohol addiction as a problem but being addicted to porn could have a lot to do with not getting enough sex at home lol

I don't know how, but it seems that areas of the brain affected by repeated alcohol or cocaine use, for example, are "lit up" the same way by repeated exposure to porn. It's part of a sexual addiction, paralleling the brain responses of even chronic gambling addicts.

I can dig what you're saying, though, about not getting it at home, hence turning to porn for stimulation. So it goes.

Making a mess of a keyboard is far better than someone stalking a woman or committing rape.

Agreed to a point....in my opinion prostitution should be legal, if a woman (or man) wants to provide a service willingly and someone is willing to pay...why should I or anyone be able to say NO.... riddle me this Batman...if they give it away free then no law is broken, yet if they charge, it becomes a crime.....don't get the reasoning.....and yes, if you ain't gettin any, then for some it can become a problem...it's the outlet or choice of release and it affect/infects others is where a problem/crime begins.......
