More about my misadventures in Shanghai at a future date… I’m still trying to scrub the rude crust of communist China off my face and ass… In the mean time let us talk about something much more important: PORN!
Slashdot [slashdot.org] has this post [slashdot.org] about a study in England that (duh) finds that more than half of 9-19 year old males (what about women?) have been exposed to online porn. Great! Desensitize the masses, soon the legal age for buying Hustler will be 10! Ain’t democracy great? You can’t read the full article unless you have a subscription to the FT but the best part is quoted in the Slashdot summary:
“To some men, Haynes argues, clicking on porn is simply a way to pass the time. It’s a hobby. Once they’d idly play solitaire; now they idly click on a porn site. Others, though, succumb to addiction: Most addictions are to do with internal emptiness, wanting to fill up dead space, and addiction is always destructive.”
Yea! But it’s not their own “internal emptiness” they want to fill up.
Of course this leaves many unanswered questions: How many males age 0-9 have been exposed to online porn? How many women aged 0-19 have been exposed to online porn? If they haven’t been exposed; why? Do they not own a computer or have access from school? And the best question of all: What religion are these 9-19 year old boys?
