What Are Your Honest Views of Internet Porn? [We Ask You]

We all know the Internet is awash with porn. Those who aren’t interested in it fool themselves into believing it’s buried well away from prying eyes, while those who access it regularly know that it’s a simple case of typing one or two words into Google. Despite this common knowledge, Internet porn isn’t a common topic of conversation, at least decent, polite conversation.

Perhaps it’s time to change this, to open up about the omnipresence of porn online, and to talk about it openly and honestly. Sure, there are children reading, but if they’re online without supervision the chances are they will have encountered some nudity at the very least. So why not discuss the issue openly and honestly?

This Week’s Question…

What Are Your Honest Views Of Internet Porn?

Christian recently wrote a feature-length article about pornography addiction and the efforts of some to wean themselves off this one aspect of the Internet. It’s an enlightening read that should fascinate anyone who is aware of online pornography but unaware of the problems it can cause. If you have anything to say on the subject of pornography addiction then please comment on that article. Otherwise keep on reading.

We want to hear your honest views on Internet pornography. Do you think it’s an integral part of the Internet that has as much right to exist as any other? Would you like to see porn sites shut down, censored, or even moved to their own .xxx domain? Do you think viewing pornography online is a harmless activity for most people that should not be blown out of proportion?

Opening the conversation out even more, would you consider adding content filters to bar yourself from viewing porn? If you have kids do you filter content to stop them viewing porn, either on purpose or inadvertently? Or is education the best way to deal with the issue, letting the younger generation know this stuff is out there but informing them that it should be avoided?

Please don’t promote pornographic websites. The intent of this article is purely to open up the conversation in order to have an honest and adult debate on Internet porn.
