PornoU?

There is a lot of recent chatter and the possibility of new bills that would require taxing pornography and strip clubs due to its relationship with violence.

One thought on “PornoU?

  1. without a doubt, i wrote two papers on the topic, one asking for warning labels a la tobacco. remember porn and erotica are different.

    A 1984 Minneapolis Ordinance distinguished pornography from erotica. It
    defined pornography as
    “…graphic sexually explicit subordination of women, whether in pictures
    or in words, that also includes one or more of the following; women are
    presented as sexual objects who enjoy pain or humiliation; or women are
    presented as sexual objects who experience sexual pleasure in being
    raped; or women are presented as sexual objects tied up or cut up or
    mutilated or bruised or physically hurt; or women are presented as sexual
    objects for domination, conquest, violation, exploitation, possession or
    use, through postures or positions of submission or servility or display; or women are presented being penetrated by inanimate objects or animals; or
    women are presented in scenarios of degradation, injury, torture,
    dismembered or truncated or severed or fragmented into body parts,
    shown as filthy or inferior, bleeding, bruised, or hurt in a context that
    makes these conditions sexual”.
