  •  I doubt it. I think most people have a sense of (0+ / 0-)

    privacy about their bodies, and that sex is something personal, intimate, cherished and private. All of that is incompatible with distributing images of oneself totally indiscriminately with no further control after release. One woman who escaped the trafficker who used her for porn said that one of the ongoing burdens is that people still see her images and sometimes recognize her even though she escaped several years ago.

    I get it that porn is fun for some people to look at. Chocolate is fun and so is heroin. The question becomes, is porn more like chocolate or heroin? There are neurological studies cited above that suggest the latter.



    Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.
