Sexual Economics and attempts to ban porn
A study released by the Association for Psychological Science titled “The Price Had Better Be Right” revealed that the degree to which women are repulsed by sexually explicit ads is reduced by an increase in the value of the product advertised.
Quote:As predicted, women found sexual imagery distasteful when it was used to promote a cheap product, but this reaction to sexual imagery was mitigated if the product promoted was expensive
. That's Sexual Economics right there


you know In my life I have heard statements like "Women regard the sex they offer as a highly valuable commodity that carries with it the important quality of scarcity, which is essential in keeping the price of sex high" I never really payed that much attention to them until now

Then there's the EU Attempt to ban porn think about it.
Ban porn then ban sexual objectification and conveniently forget the 1000s of women who drool over say twilight,50 shades of grey,Justin Bieber,George Clooney or god knows how many times i have heard women talk about that guy over there you know the one who looks like a hunk ect

Thus making sex more expensive

anyway its a really interesting study

It's interesting that Europe used to be far more accepting of porn, while the US used to have people shooting Larry Flynt over it. Now, the EU is becoming intolerant of porn, and Americans revel in it.

Oh Europe... Just accept sharia law and get it over with. The USA will follow with some kind of biblical law that will no doubt itself be illegal... But hey, who really cares about separation of church and state, right?

because sharia law use's word like "document for all gender equality", "gender stereotypes" "gender inequality" wait it don't use any of them
first reed the report

Let me give you a hint buddy
Here is a law that has a been considered by the EU
link to shit I'm going to quote
some choice quotes include
Quote:Group libel” means: defamatory comments made in public and aimed against a group as defined in paragraph (a) – or members thereof – with a view to inciting to violence, slandering the group, holding it to ridicule* or subjecting it to false charges.

Quote: The following acts will be regarded as criminal offences punishable as aggravated crimes[9]:

(iii) Group libel as defined in Section 1(b).*



Also indoctrination camps in Section 7 yay
Quote:(b)
Juveniles convicted of committing crimes
listed in paragraph(a) will be required to undergo a rehabilitation program
designed to instill in them a culture of tolerance.

my conclusion is
EU fucked it self just fine without muslims
also please note: that law that I just quoted thankfully did not pass ... yet

*Emphasis MINE

RE: Sexual Economics and attempts to ban porn
I think they want to place rules on ISP's in an attempt to regulate the internet with some decent and logical intentions that will possibly be loosely worded as to potentially incorporate other certain restrictions.

I don't think anybody can "make sex more expensive".

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

What's the explanation of why Europe wants to ban porn?

“The reason people use a crucifix against vampires is because vampires are allergic to bullshit.” ― Richard Pryor

Next thing you know, they ban lotion and tissues. What are you going to do then?

Im from the UK so can only comment on what has been said here recently. A lot of emphasis has been put on protecting children with regards to the internet, so they have worked with the ISP's in the UK to have filters put into place that the customer can opt out of.

Also Google has removed certain wording and phrases on request of the UK to do with gaining access to child porn.

Yup it was a British article I read describing children, especially young teens addicted to porn. I am an American living in France, but one of my US-side friends described an experience they had the beginning of this school year. They warned their three young girls about porn and to stay away from it. It was 2 weeks later that their SIX YEAR OLD was at school on the playground when her classmate walked up to show her porn on his phone. She immediately knew it was not okay and told him so and walked away.

Whatever adults may do with or think about porn, I do feel badly for children who get exposed to it, it is absolutely predatory. Parents have to be very careful, and it can even be beyond their control. Kids brains aren't yet fuly developed so porn can get a particularly strong and oppresive hold on some children, and that is tragic.
