Morality in Media (MIM) president Bob Peters has contacted the American Association of Retired People (AARP) for running an ad seeking customers for BetterSex.com.

"BetterSex.com promotes itself as providing bona fide sex education materials for adults," he notes. "I think that many people, if they looked at the content of these materials, would say this is pornography."

If the members of AARP haven't complained, why is this guy complaining?

Besides, older people have needs too....not that I really want to think about that. Too bad there isn't a smiley that vomits.

Well I'd rather they push porn than life insurance; indeed it seems the AARP has turned into an insurance company.

OneNewsNow dot com is part of the American Family News Network, which is an arm of the Rev Donald Wildmon's American Family Assn.

So - that's why. They've very, very interested in other people's orgasms.

When all you have is a hammer. Everythings starts looking like a nail.

When you have a dirty, perverted mind. Everythings starts looking like porn.

Some the the hate-filled preaching religious groups do is way worse than porn in terms of damage to someone's mind. Porn (not child porn) is harmless by comparision. I am happy it has pissed off the moral police.

Morality in Media also runs the delightfully titled National Obscenity Law Center.
