    on topic, the convienence store 3 houses down from me sells porn out in the open, about 4 ft from the candy kids buy.
    I don't think they let kids look at any of the porn.
    I don't have feelings either way on this. porn is porn, it's been around forever.

    I just don't think hard core porn set out right next to the counter that you pay at should be visible to kids, just like obregon said. This wasn't sex ed dvd's, it was XXX porn with very graphic pictures on the front. How come most video stores (that sell porn) have to put up a black curtain with a sign that says no children on it yet the gas station just lays it out for you. There is a porn booth at the Flea Market here, and they put up a huge black curtain with signs that say no kids allowed. I just think it's wrong. I don't have kids, but I know the last thing I want to talk about with "Jr" (No, not Dale Earnhardt Jr, either!) in a gas station is why there are women and men handcuffed and doing it on the front of a dvd cover with whips and chains in the background!

    Mabudon,
    That's because YOU'RE part of the problem at large, "sir"!
    (using my best conservative radio talk show host voice)

    lol! J/K of course!


    Trapper,
    Whether you like it or not is not the real issue but rather what your kids will think you think about it and how you react to it can affect them deeply. What you have to decide is what you will tell your kids when they do see something like that, whether they're 5 or 15. How will you handle it? You don't seem to want to think about having "the discussion" at all at anytime but it's best to think about these things now before you do have children and are shocked when the time comes to explain this by not knowing what to say. Unfortunately, we can't pick and choose how our kids will be exposed to things we ourselves may not like, what we must do is understand how to calmly explain things when they do arise.

    Like it or not, pornography (graphic depictions of sex) is a part of sexual human culture from at least the days of ancient Greece (painted on urns) until today. Only the media it is delivered upon is different but it's goal was always the same, titillation of the libido. When explaining that to a small child one can simply say "Some adults like to look at naked people." Why do they like looking at it? "I don't know." If you must interject some morality in the conversation it's best to simply say "I don't care for it myself, it's rather boring." You really needn't go into the B & D scene with them at the gas station. If stated matter of factly, without emotion or even batting an eyelash they will come away with the feeling it's no big deal, just another aspect of life.

    It isn't just sex. Pornography is an addiction. I have seen marriages literally ruined because either the husband or wife became absolutely consumed by pornography. And at the risk of being unpopular here, I for one think sex is sacred and is meant to be practiced under certain circumstances. I am of the mind that throwing it out for all to see cheapens it, is degrading and is abusing something that was intended to be something special.

    Having magazines in plain sight of a 6 year old boy is unacceptable. The implications are too great and too much is at stake.

    Baylor, you are only illustrating the point of psychologists who're forced to confront these issues when they get overblown and begin ruining peoples lives. If we analyze the backgrounds of those who become addicted and more often than not, we'll find extreme emotional imprints and conditioning attached to the sex drives of these people who become so affected by pornography (or become sex addicts in general). As you pointed out, a fixation on sex is a definite problem as much as a fear of it. However, it's never as simple as someone seeing a playboy or naughty DVD and suddenly they're a flasher on the subway or involved some other criminal sexual activity. There are always effects of causation leading up to extremes in behavior.

    It is not the images themselves which cause the neuroses.

    As far as belief in the "sacredness" of sex or the human body in general, that's a metaphysical concept and like any metaphysical concept, this belief varies from person to person.

    I will never have children, Swords, so I do not need to worry about having that conversation. I think it's innapropriate to have porn out in plain site at a gas station(or anywhere else where children can go). That's just how I feel. If they can have them out at gas stations, does that mean they can have them at the county fair? I don't have a problem with them selling it, I have a problem with it not being behind a curtain or some place where kids can't see it. There should be limits.

    I have two little girls, and I have to say that Swords hit the nail on the head.

    Baylorguy, your oppinion, I assume, is religious based. If you are basing that oppinon on the bible, or any religious text/ideology, it immediately renders your argument irrelevant in a court of law. The onus would be on you to produce EVIDENCE that the porn is harmful.

    The idea that porn is an addiction is a straw man argument. No, it's not. Once CAN be addicted to it, but it is NOT an addiction in and of itself.

    Alcohol and cigarets are out for all to see, and are far more addictive than porn since they have a chemical nature to them as well.

    The idea there is that why should the masses, who can handle it responsible, suffer because the minority cannot?
