5 Ways Internet Porn Is Changing The World (for The Better).

Typically used by opponents, statistics regarding internet pornography commonly are tilted, out-of-date, and unsupported. These loudmouth assholes can step aside; internet pornography is evolving and has positive effects for both men and women.

Just The Facts

  1. Nielsen ratings in early 2007 showed that of those view porn online, women represented a third.
  2. Approximately every 40 minutes, somewhere in America a new pornographic video is in production.
  3. Psychologists in the early and mid-nineties finally debunked the theory that men and women view imagery different when studies proved that women are as visually aroused as men, having similar physical responses. Ten years later, studies are still confirming these results.
  4. By early 2000, the internet became the most popular pornographic delivery system.
  5. Internet porn has something for everyone. Seriously, please excuse me while I clear my head of some unwanted imagery...

5 Ways Internet Porn is Changing the World (For the Better)

Whether they fess up to it or not, both women and men are going online to view pornography. Face it; men claiming they are not looking at internet porn are usually either lying or blind. Women believing that their man does not look at porn online are seriously disturbed and perhaps psycho bitches. And women claiming never to view pornography are also probably lying -otherwise just missing out. To better educate the public and presented in no particular order, five Reasons Internet Porn is Changing the World for the Better.

1. Internet Porn is Accessible

Adults with access to a computer and an internet connection can instantly discover internet porn. No longer is viewing porn limited to squalid theatres or shady adult novelty stores. Sexy pictures, erotic literature, and streaming videos are just a click away and often free of charge. Internet porn not only saves money, but also helps viewers avoid possible sticky situations. Common sense says women feel safer viewing pornography at home (or even on their cell phones) rather than frequent an adult theater alone at night or any predominantly male operated facility catering primarily to men. In addition, men can enjoy both a little porn and a night at home.

2. Mainstreaming Sexuality

Although more women than men deny their interest in porn, unfortunately both sexes feel that admitting to even the most minimal pornography viewing is shameful or could cause relationship problems. Ideally, mainstreaming pornography can perhaps erase some of the taboo associated with regular sex and sexuality, especially for women. Internet porn has stirred back up the pornography controversy, and by doing so has gained the attention of both sexes. Women are finally speaking up for themselves regarding view pornography as "just another sex toy" (an additional sex toy guys! Don't go hiding her vibrator.).

3. Anyone Can Be a Star

Internet pornography has increased access to amateur films, having the effect of even producing videos with actors pretending to be amateurs making porn. The men and women starring in these videos are not the stereotypical porn stars (post-surgery or genetically blessed) but instead intended to represent real people. At the very least, the stars of internet porn vary in size, shape, color, and age. Men can honestly say to their girlfriends "I'm not watching porn because I want to actually fuck someone else, just look honey- you're totally hotter than her."

4. Beneficial to a Happier Sex Life

Most internet pornography is actually pretty damn funny and watching it together can encourage conversation and laughter between couples. By encouraging laughing and communication combined with physical arousal, internet pornography can be a sexual enhancer. A Danish study showed viewing hardcore pornography has "had primarily a positive effect f on various aspects of their lives" for men and women.

5. Decreasing the Rate of Sex Crimes

Internet porn creates an outlet for violent fantasies, which can decrease sex crimes. Just think about comparative research. Studies have shown that when violent films are released, the rates violent crimes decrease. Researchers have also learned that the rates of murders committed by males in their mid-teens dropped significantly when explicitly violent video games became popular. Of course, correlation and causation are not the same (but it does allow for a heated discussion that might just have some getting a little hot). Comparison studies, although interesting (to some), are not necessary. Considering that everywhere scientific studies were conducted produced the same results: an increase in the availability and acceptance of pornography has the effect of decreasing sex crimes (Results were published in 2009 by Diamond: Pornography, public acceptance and sex related crime: a review.)
