Porn Censorship

You could argue that porn should be censored that if we don’t stop porn producers now they will take this smut and destroy everything.  But you would have to ask yourself why you want to stop pornography.  Is it because you don’t agree with visual depiction of sexual activities?  Is it because you are a prude? Or is it because you are attempting to encroach on our civil liberties?

Porn is an art form.  It is a genre of movie making that has a very long history of censorship.  If you believe in the first amendment why are you willing to sell out when it comes to porn?  It would seem that this nation I love so much is very hypocritical. Am I just discovering this?  My art is good but your art should be banned.  Huh?

According to AVN (Adult Video News) John Stagliano has been indicted on federal obscenity charges.  Obscenity is a strange law.  It is based on the view point of “average citizens.”  Whatever that means.  Obscenity can not be defined as a crime in the way that other crimes can be because quite frankly it is a matter of censorship.  Obscenity is a loophole that can be thrown at pornographers if someone in power is pissed off at them.

I watch a lot of porn, I read porn, I write porn.  I have always been fascinated by pornography in it’s many genres, styles, and mediums.  I LOVE PORN.  Always have, always will.  Granted there are types of porn that I like more than others but isn’t that why there is so much to choose from, because everyone who loves porn has a particular taste for it.  It is a style preference.

I have not seen the videos in question (Jay Sin’s Milk Nymphos, Joey Silvera’s Storm Squirters 2 and an online trailer for Belladonna’s Fetish Fanatic 5) but I’m sure that a lot of money went into the federal indicting of Stagliano.  Why?

Why would a country in such dire shape spend any money on squelching porn?  Censorship.  It all comes back to censorship.  I think the USA is going to a lot of trouble to crush adult content.  I’m not the only one who feels this way.

“Restricting the amount and type of sexually explicit material you’re allowed to look at in private (and driving it’s producers and distributors out of business) is only one part of the battle against pornography.  The other is a massive disinformation campaign” (Klein 123).

A disinformation campaign?  Like a conspiracy to keep us from knowing the truth about certain issues?  OMG – The US government would do that?  Doesn’t that make them a little like Nazi Germany?

What else will this government restrict?  News On The Iraq War?  Yep!  Medial care for it’s citizens?  You know it!  My ability to engage in consensual anal sex in Georgia?  Noooooooooo!

I love anal sex in states with sodomy laws – it makes it that much dirtier.  Maybe that’s why the laws are in place.  To make the sex better.  Hmmm.

May is victims of pornography month.  To celebrate I’m making porn all month.  What are you doing?

One thought on “Porn Censorship

  1. Censorship. A scary concept. It is slowly making its way into our society. Slowly gaining seats of power and authority. The conservatives use it. The liberals use it. The radical feminists use it. It is rampant.

    One of the ideas the country was founded on was that censorship was not to be tolerated. Porn may not be popular for discussion in many situations, but the freedom of speech is there to protect it. And protection it needs. If such a topic was popular it wouldn’t need it. Popular speech has never needed protection. It is the speech that angers people, that makes people question beliefs that needs protection. That is what porn is a facet of. It angers some people. It offends others. It pleases some more. That is good. That is what speech should do.
