There is no set script, and no predictable moment for the conversation. It can happen at as early an age as 6 or 7, when a child may not yet understand the basic mechanics of sex. It is typically set off by a child’s accidental wanderings online or the deliberate searches of a curious teenager on a smartphone, laptop, tablet or one of the other devices that have made it nearly impossible to grow up without encountering sexually explicit material. Even a quick Twitter or Facebook search reveals that older students report seeing pornography on others’ laptops or phones in class, usually with an “OMG” attached.

I think the real temptation and curiosity for those people and many, many others was that many women were saying "This is great for my sex life. This is great for my marriage." Better sex? Who is saying no to that?!...I certainly wouldn't, though 50 Shades did not crank my engine the way it has for so many other women. But I remain stunned by the fact that yet again we're repeating the same assumptions, and answering with the same assertions. We cannot examine female arousal without demeaning condescension. And that is a shame. I wish it were possible to speak candidly about what books turned women on, and why. It would be fascinating to see what those books have in common, and why some work and some don't.

What performers like Hartley and I are equally opposed to is being condescended to by hypocritical zealots like Weinstein and Lubben who are obviously motivated by a concern for something other than our health and safety. Who have, in fact, shown a “blatant disregard” for the health and safety of industry workers by making it more difficult for us to use the protections we already have in place when their actions led to the closure of AIM.

Prosecutors' failure to disclose that hypnosis was used to help a witness recover memories of alleged sex abuse as a child does not invalidate a defendant's guilty plea, a federal appeals court ruled yesterday...The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday refused to grant the habeas petition sought by Jesse Friedman, who was seeking to undo his 1988 guilty plea in a molestation case that rocked Nassau County, N.Y., and became the subject of the documentary "Capturing the Friedmans."...
But while they denied relief, Eastern District Judge Edward Korman, sitting by designation, and 2nd Circuit Judge Rosemary Pooler, denounced the investigation of the case, criticizing the behavior of detectives for pressuring students in Great Neck to implicate Jesse Friedman and his father, Arnold Friedman, and criticizing the performance of then Nassau County Court Judge Abbey Boklan.

Whatever the outcome, the moment in our legal history when at last we recognize that community is now everybody with a computer, that "prurience" is in all our cable boxes and our hotel rooms -- and that civilization has somehow managed to continue to exist anyway -- may soon be upon us.

Extreme Associates and its owners conceded that the charged materials are obscene under the Miller test, and that the distribution of these materials is illegal. Extreme Associates, Inc. was the subject of a PBS Frontline documentary entitled "American Porn," which aired nationwide on Feb. 7, 2002. That program showed non-sexually explicit portions of the filming of the video, "Forced Entry." As part of the investigation, undercover U.S. Postal Inspectors visited the Extreme Associates website and purchased certain obscene videotapes, which Extreme Associates delivered through U.S. mails. Inspectors also downloaded several obscene video clips.

Porn is now illegal in the Ukraine, unless used for medicinal purposes. Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko last week signed off on new legislation joining the Ukraine to an ever-lengthening list of countries that have decided to move the censorship goalposts over the last few years, from publication of porn on to simple possession of it.

AIM is not harm-reduction. AIM is tightly woven into the business of pornography, and calling AIM “harm reduction” is farcical; akin to calling a drug dealer running a needle exchange program “harm prevention.” The HIV/STD infection statistics quoted by AIM, most especially the comparison to HIV and other STD infection rates among the general population and relevant sub-cohorts are easily contradicted lies that a high school journalism student could debunk with a hand-held calculator and 20 minutes on the Center for Disease Control website.
The “sex-positive community” has been silent, save a few lame offerings that ignore the statistical facts. Pornography is made in a way that profoundly contradicts the basic safer-sex message and respect for responsible personal choice that is supposed to lie at the heart of sex-positive philosophy. I am profoundly disappointed.
