Pornography has been so thickly glossed over with the patina of chic these days in the name of verbal freedom and sophisication… Part of the problem is that those who traditionally have been the most vigorous opponents of porn are often those same people who shudder at the explicit mention of any sexual subject… There can be no equality in porn, no female equivalent, no turning of the tables in the name of bawdy fun. Pornography, like rape, is a male invention, desgined to dehumanize women… Pornography is the undiluted essence of anti-female propoganda.
Pornography and violence are by-products of societies in which private identity has been...destroyed by sudden environmental change.Marshall McLuhan
Legend has it that every new technology is first used for something related to sex or Pornography. That seems to be the way of humankind.tim berners-lee
The difference between Pornography and erotica is lighting.
Pornography is the attempt to insult sex, to do dirt on it.
Pornography was the great vice of the Seventies; plutographythe graphic depiction of the acts of the richis the great vice of the Eighties.
Pornography takes all the reality out of sex and Disney does that to family life.jarvis cocker
Pornography is used in rape - to plan it, to execute it, to choreograph it, to engender the excitement to commit the act.
Pornography is the essential sexuality of male power: of hate, of ownership, of hierarchy; of sadism, of dominance."Andrea Dworkin
Obscenity is a cleansing process, whereas Pornography only adds to the murk.
What Pornography is really about, ultimately, isn't sex but death.Susan Sontag
I'm pretty sure there's no Nobel prize for Pornography.jim butcher
I want to talk about the internet, the impact it is having on the innocence of our children, how online Pornography is corroding childhood and how, in the darkest corners of the internet, there are things going on that are a direct danger to our children, and that must be stamped out.david cameron
I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description [hard-core Pornography]; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that.potter stewart
This used to be about sex. The literature of my people was Pornography, filled with cries for mercy, drama enacted on people without prolonged negotiation, partners engaged in a dance in the middle of a bonfire. Now, it's 300-page manuals about how to make sure nothing bad will happen.laura antoniou
A widespread taste for Pornography means that nature is alerting us to some threat of extinction.j. g. ballard
Feminists are often asked whether Pornography causes rape. The fact is that rape and prostitution caused and continue to cause Pornography. Politically, culturally, socially, sexually, and economically, rape and prostitution generated Pornography; and Pornography depends for its continued existence on the rape and prostitution of women.Andrea Dworkin
A librarian is not a legal process. There is not librarian in the country unless she or he is a lawyer who is in the position to determine what he or she is looking at is indeed child Pornography.judith krug
Show me an abuse of women in society, I'll show it to you made sex in the Pornography. If you want to know who is being hurt in this society, go see what is being done and to whom in Pornography and then go look for them other places in the world. You will find them being hurt in just that way.catharine mackinnon
There is no evidence that demonstrates a significant increase in the danger to children caused by Pornography. A person who is prone to act on his fantasies will likely do so irrespective of the availability of Pornography.
Children who willingly participate in sexual acts have the right to make that decision as well, even if it's distasteful to us personally. Some children will make poor choices just as some adults do in smoking and drinking to excess; this is part of life. When we outlaw child Pornography, the prices paid for child performers rise, increasing the incentives for parents to use children against their will.
The goal of the state is to find some practice that is universally reviled and pose as the one and only way of expunging it from society. The best example today is child Pornography, a grim and ghastly industry that every decent person would like to see eradicated from the earth. But in the name of doing so, the state invades everyone's privacy, controls speech, interferes with families, and otherwise uses the issue as a wedge to eliminate every freedom.
[I]n the male sexual lexicon, which is the vocabulary of power, erotica is simply high-class Pornography: better produced, better conceived, better executed, better packaged, designed for a better class of consumer. As with the call girl and the streetwalker, one is turned out better but both are produced by the same system of sexual values and both perform the same sexual service.Andrea Dworkin
[I can't define what is Pornography.] "But I know it when I see it."
Erotica: The depiction of naked men. Depictions of naked women are far less innocent and are known as "Pornography".richard summerbell
What do my science fiction stories have in common with Pornography? Fantasies of an impossibly hospitable world, I'm told.kurt vonnegut
Watching Pornography [..] is like going to a Wikipedia page. You search for a specific thing, a specific feeling, a specific result, and that’s exactly what you find.
