If I had found anything in my garage, It wouldn't have been such an earth shattering decision on what to do with them. It only takes 10 seconds to decide either get rid of them or toss them back into the corner for the next cleaning. I have never seen such weak minded people before.

If you are talking about me being 'HER', I didn't find them in my garage. They were put out on garbage day by someone else in the neighborhood. Also you don't understand what the whole point of this thread was.

I don't think stating our opinions is being weak minded. Who says I am right or you are right? We are all just here to learn from each other.

If you were not talking about me being 'HER' then never mind.

Skoe, if you want my honest opinion let him keep the Playboys. Theyre mild and 'tastefully' done compared to the Penthouse etc etc. It can keep him from sex, its not a guearentee that hes going to be having sex earlier like some people have said. Just explain to him the downside of having sex early, dont treat him like an idiot and blast him or anything. People usually take one extreme or another when it comes to porn. Totally love it or totally think its evil. Im in the middle. I couldnt care less. So long as its not underage or any weird stuff Id tolerate it. Whethere you say he can have it or not hell get some regardless. Why not keep the trust barrier open and say he can keep them.

i would say to let him keep it. it will be much less graphic than anything he would find on the net.

also, it WILL NOT increase his sex drive.....at least not after he....well...um...you knows....

Women make alot more from porn than men do, its a female dominated industry.

dncngrl1964, the question asked wasnt if its degrading or what if your wife or daughter was doing it. I dont have a daughter and wife isnt doing it so i cant answer. The women who do porn do it because they want to. They exploit men and ake alot of $$$$$ because of it.

some have to do it because they have no other means
maybe there husband has walked out on her and their 4 kids

I am not saying that women arent at fault here too

and truth be known
it exploits men's weaknesses
maybe men should be stronger and not partake in such foulness to begin with
and therefore the books should be burned

I hear magazine paper glows pretty colors when it burns

Porn isnt the ideal industry for any woman to go into. But witht he amount of $$$$ they can make from showing some skin is massive. There are even non nude models out there that make thousands from teasing, like you said, exploiting mens weakness's. I for one dont pay for anything like that, but fair play to these women for making money doing it.

Women..most do not go into this just for the money, its a deep rooted problem due to abuse. They are being exploited and used and are literally throwing their lives away, and their souls. Some do wake up and get out before their lives are ruined, some don't. My heart really goes out to them, I really do not blame them as much as I do "someone else here".

I wish it were illegal myself, so these women can be what they were intended to be in life, so that they could have a real life, and not end up dead with aids.

It's amazing. The internet has managed to do, what religion and government couldn't do for the past hundred years. That is destroy the porn magazine industry. Penthouse went from a circulation of 25 million per month to less than 400 thousand. Playboy Magazine has been a money loser for years. They only keep printing for nostalgia. The rest of the Playboy empire is what keeps it afloat. I can't remember the last time I actually looked at a magazine.

For those that say porn should be illegal. You can't legislate morality. We don't need any more nannystaters telling us what we can and can't do.
Pornography is not evil. People are evil. There all evil people in all walks of life. Doctors, lawyers, police, clergy, pornstars, and cashiers. There are good people in all of those occupations too.
If I give you an inch and let you ban porn, tomorrow you will force all women to wrap themselves in scarves while in public. The thought police will execute anybody that doesn't agree with them. Then when a young man sees a bare ankle for the first time, he will go insane, and blow himself up, because he has no self control. All because nobody taught him balance and moderation. Do you want that on your hands?
