    I see that you are against pornography being produced, but what course of action would you suggest?
    I see that you haven't stated your opinion on the matter?

    I haven't looked into it too much, so I don't want to state an uninformed and inaccurate opinion as that would be rather pointless. Maybe there should be some sort of internal regulation to make sure people in the industry aren't maltreated like the cases you have referenced?

    For those that think porn is great, read the following blog post and either change your mind or explain away the severe contrast in how women and men are treated in it.

    Uh oh, it's the user who supported the sexual exploitation of disaster-striken women by some Oxfam workers :lol: I don't think you're very suited to be talking about the morality and wellbeing of people in sexual activity

    Are you talking about the Oxfam case? If so, then if they were prostitutes, it would still be exploiting to a degree as some Oxfam workers can pay them a very small amount at the worker's benefit, to take advantage of the desperation of the women due to a lack of money after the disaster. But that point wouldn't matter as prostitution is illegal in Haiti.

    prostitution may be illegal, but is 'paying for it' illegal?

    anyway, would you be fine with aid workers/ expats/ tourists paying for sex if not a disaster area?

    Sexual exploitation: "Sexual exploitation is the sexual abuse of children and youth through the exchange of sex or sexualacts for drugs, food, shelter, protection, other basics of life, and/or money."

    The happy prostitute is a myth. You show an enormous amount of depravity when judging the choices some people are forced into to survive.

    Well most of them aren't physically maltreated as such. The impact is long term psychologically. Drug abuse, alcoholism, suicide, mental health problems are all a huge part of the porn industry. We need to highlight these things to help young girls make better choices.

    Also, I do believe that anyone possessing child pornography needs to removed from society (jail for life).
    By that logic, people who look up videos of people being beheaded also
    need to be removed from society (jail for life).

    By that logic, people who look at videos of the falling man on September 11 need to be removed from society (jail for life).

    Don't you think it'd be bit fairer to reserve jail for life for murderers
    and serious rapists? (Not for those who might curiously look at their
    actions which were made accessible by a publisher- an internet page).

    I don't want it to be possible for a serial killer and someone who looks at clips of Tommy Cooper keeling over on stage to both be doing life
    sentences.

    If they are adult prostitutes and give genuine consent, then it is not exploitation

    Pleny of poor folk in developing countries do other forms of work

    But it's not genuine consent if it has to be bought.

    There's plenty wrong with it. Google it and learn more about the topic, and don't just have a self-centric view "for me I don't have a problem so no one has a problem".
    There's plenty wrong with most things in life that doesnt give moralizing turds the right to ban it, especially when the majority of people [whether or not they admit it] appear to enjoy it.
    Equally on your argument that the industry is evil to those who work in it - a great deal of it is now user submitted thus bypassing that problem, what do you say to that?
