As I continue preparing for my interview/presentation/trip omg scary events I needed a break and I stumbled upon this article (here is where I got it Yes I recognize the overt views of the site but the article itself is not made by them but linked )

Pornography, Public Acceptance and Sex Related Crime: A Review

Its bibliographic data is: International Journal of Law and Psychiatry 32 (2009) 304-314 now I am not sure exactly how trustworthy the IJLP is as a psychiatric service but this seems like a legitimate

that said:

A vocal segment of the population has serious concerns about the effect of pornography in society and challenges its public use and acceptance. This manuscript reviews the major issues associated with the availability of sexually explicit material. It has been found everywhere scientifically investigated that as pornography has increased in availability, sex crimes have either decreased or not increased. It is further been found that sexual erotica has not only wide spread personal acceptance and use but general tolerance for its availability to adults. This attitude is seen by both men and women and not only in urban communities but also in reputed conservative ones as well. Further this finding holds nationally in the United States and in widely different countries around the world. Indeed, no country where this matter has been scientifically studied has yet been found to think pornography ought be restricted from adults. The only consistent finding is that adults prefer to have the material restricted from children’s production or use.

In other words the findings as I read them from a theoretically peer reviewed journal is that pornography might in fact be socially positive instead of negative. At least in relation to rape, harassment and sexual dysfunction.

that said I'd like to see some more follow up on this one. It is interesting and makes some pretty important conclusions. I'd also like to know how far Mr. Diamond can take this study of pornogrpahy use outside of sexual situations (such as do heterosexual men who use heteroesexual porn on a regular basis objectify the women who work under them? what is the effect on treating the opposite gender as equals and not as set up straw men? the effect on homosexual men and women? bisexuals? is objectification through porn a mythos?)

Anyway a fascinating article I think people should read.
