    Question More porn=less sex crimes, should porn be a human right like food?

    It is becoming apparent that porn, far from being harmful , may indeed be a good thing. So if porn is associated with lower sex crimes, perhaps we need to have more porn. Indeed it could be argued that access to porn should become a human right.

    What do people think of porn - and how , as a society, we deal with it ? Should people on the dole be given free porn ? SHould doctors be allowed to prescribe porn ? Is access to porn a human right ?

    Porn: Good for us? - The Scientist - Magazine of the Life Sciences
    Scientific examination of the subject has found that as the use of porn increases, the rate of sex crimes goes down.

    ...
    But what do the data say? Over the years, many scientists have investigated the link between pornography (considered legal under the First Amendment in the United States unless judged “obscene”) and sex crimes and attitudes towards women. And in every region investigated, researchers have found that as pornography has increased in availability, sex crimes have either decreased or not increased.

    Presumably the logic being, Cyb, that watching pornography leads to self gratification thus reducing the inclination to find another human in which to gratify oneself, willing or otherwise?

    Default Ted Bundy interview

    Ultimatley this interview never aired because Bundy describes his addiction to sex and mass murder stemming initally from soft porn usage.

    There's a correlation - and what causes it is unclear

    Though at the least it is becoming apparent, that on average , porn is not harmful

    Now if eating is a human right: is consuming porn ?

    @sondagefaux
    That argument would likely lead to clipped ears

    The west is a-wash in porn and incidence rates for sex crimes have been on the rise for decades.The premise of this OP would appear to be back to front.

    How is it 'becoming apparent'? Because you found one study which seemed to indicate that? If you wanted, you could find any number of studies which indicate the opposite. The effect - if any - which porn has on sexual violence has always been very contentious. I doubt this latest study is in any way definitive.

    Indeed it could be argued that access to porn should become a human right.
    Indeed it could not.

    Ted Bundy was exhibiting psychotic behaviour from the age of three. He never even mentioned the porn angle before this interview (which happened to be conducted by an anti-porn crusader) and none of the accounts I have read of his life and crimes takes it seriously as a factor in his pathology.
