  3. Apart from the glib comment, I think you're completely wrong. It isn't hypocrisy for society to marginalize the pornography industry which is exploitative of women in so many ways. By condoning it, particularly via somebody connected with being in charge of children, we are in danger of sliding another step deeper into a slimy and unsatisfactory World.

  4. I don't know if it is always exploitative, Rog. I think it can be, but I also wonder why we've always had the sex industry in its many forms,(and no doubt always will) if there is not some kind of human need for it.

    I keep meaning to read this book because she interviewed the people working within it.

    I think he defended himself quite well too.

    "Had I not been raised by two open-minded parents and not worked in sex education and the sex industry, I might have shared the view of those who associate porn with social ills: paedophilia, rape, sex slavery, abuse, HIV, teen sex, the degradation of women. But I don't think we should accept a view just because it is held by a large number of people..."
