Hm...I seem to remember being CHAStised severely for doing the same thing in the past. Dodgy

Yeah, 'cause you do it all the fucking time.Censored

It's hard to follow a discussion or understand a response if it's not posted as a response to the response it's responding to. Clear?Blink

I don't always find it necessary. Tongue

By pattern of sexual activity, i mean statistical prevalence of all the types of sexual preference, age of consent, of marriage, duration of marriage/ committed relationships, fidelity and infidelity, consensual intercourse and/or sex-play below the age of consent; prostitution, casual coupling, pedophilia, fetishism, necrophilia, SM, bondage, rape, sexual assault and murder, domestic violence, promiscuity, openness/ secrecy of sexual preference, etc.
By incidence of pornography, i mean what type and how much explicit or implied, real or simulated sexual imagery is consumed; how much and what type of sex is depicted in mass entertainment, how much and what type in restricted fare; what's legal and how much is sold illegally.

All of these factors result from a society's attitudes, state of well-being and maturity. No one factor can be addressed successfully without a shift in the whole edifice.

I doubt there is a way to answer this question in a profound way. There are just too many factors and the sample size of studies made about this topic will always be too small.

Even though the sample space is huge.

I was taught by the experts that pornography will lead you to become a serial killer.
Here's what was used for evidence:






Serial killer Ted Bundy was interviewed by Dr. James Dobson the day before his execution. He said that pornography lead him down the path of violence and murder.

Wait, better go look at some pornography and chill out.

A. What's the difference between 'sample size' and 'sample space'?
B. Define 'huge'.
C. Do you know of a study made about this that was conducted with a 'huge sample space'?

I'd just like to say I've been told my sample space is rather large.
