Introduction / Summary (2012): Hello and welcome to our Sexuality pages. The video provides a good introduction which we think you will enjoy!
While this is not a pornographic site, it is provocative - founded upon what people search on the Internet (which is very interesting!). We then relate this to our biological and cultural evolution. We have also just added a Sex Questions and Answers section - so ask a question, we try to reply within 48 hours.

Sex is obviously important to people - and if you want to improve your sexual relationships then knowing the truth about our human evolution is the best foundation. By opening our minds to a greater diversity of behaviors, this knowledge will help you creatively cultivate healthy pleasurable moral attitudes and sexy smutty relationships (free from religious guilt & cultural myths).

Support an open honest discussion on the truth of our sexual evolution and behaviour. If you support sex positive, moral, informed sexual behaviour please share this knowledge. (These pages have a diverse collection of fascinating information relating to our human sexual evolution so people will appreciate it).

About this Philosophy Website on Truth and Reality: We are listed as one of the top Philosophy Websites on the Internet with around 600,000 page views each week. The central thesis of philosophy is that we must know the truth to act wisely and truth is founded on a correct understanding of physical reality.
Clearly people have a strong sexual instinct due to our evolution and survival as a species. However, our planet faces many serious environmental problems, thus our survival now depends on a true understanding of our place in nature, as a way of better protecting life on earth. Truth and reality are beautiful subjects which are profoundly important to our future survival - they are the source of wisdom, the foundation for everything you see and experience in the universe!

Adult Entertainment & the Sex Industry
History of Pornography: Famous Stars & Movies (Carmen Electra, Jenna Jameson, Deep Throat) & Free Porn on the Internet. Pictures & Information on Adult Magazines (Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler), XXX Videos & DVD's, Prostitution, Escorts

'There are no scientific studies that show that exposure to nonviolent sexual material causes a person to commit a sexual crime or become more sexually aggressive.'
(Dr. Judith Becker, associate professor of clinical psychology at Columbia University. http://www.cybercollege.com/sexrsh.htm)


Introduction

It is important to begin with defining our words.

Pornography: sexually explicit content designed to cause sexual arousal with little literary or artistic merit.

The difference between pornography and erotic art is that erotic art is not always sexually explicit (though it can be) and it emphasises literary and artistic beauty.

Sexual arousal in men and women has both a biological and cultural basis. Biologically, we have evolved to find sexual images arousing. This primitive sexual instinct is further regulated by our cultural and religious beliefs.

The problem with pornography is that although biologically we may find it sexually arousing, there are many aspects which are in conflict with our cultural evolution.

For example:

* If the people involved are not truly enjoying themselves.
* The focus is on male orgasm.
* The depiction and exploitation of women as sex objects.
* Focus on the sexually explicit, rather than the beauty of sexuality.
* Negative educational components e.g. violence.

Ethics

The capitalist market economic system selects for short term profit - not for what is good for humans.

AVN estimates the adult industry is a $16 billion a year industry. Though other sources suggest is this figure is much lower at $2.6 billion to $3.9 billion (Adams Media Research, Forrester Research, Veronis Suhler Communications Industry Report, IVD).

The adult entertainment industry is centered around making money from pornography - rather than making good quality, educational, beautiful erotic art. It exploits the strong male and female sexual instinct for profit, which is morally wrong.

The recent recognisation of women as consumers of the adult industry (over the past 10 years) has led to a higher demand of quality sexually explicit erotic art for couples. It has also led to more business women becoming involved in the industry. Retail sales of female sex toys have hit unprecedented highs.

The use of web cams and amateur sexually explicit internet sites has three significant effects in changing how we perceive pornography - to being redefined as sexually explicit, moral erotic art;

1. Sexually explicit content is free, which removes the profit motive.

2. Sexually explicit content is produced by couples or people who enjoy what they are doing.

3. Sexually explicit content may be produced with artistic beauty and value.

Sexual Offenders & Pornography: A Causal Connection?

The question of whether a connection exists between the availability of pornography and the prevalence of sex crime is an emotive one, canvassing as it does the issue of freedom of speech. As a result there has been, perhaps, a tendency to shoot the messenger, ignore the research or express concern while at the same time opposing censorship and not being particularly helpful in suggesting alternative remedies.

'Pornography has been so thickly glossed over with the patina of chic these days in the name of verbal freedom and sophistication that important distinctions between freedom of political expression (a democratic necessity), honest sex education for children (a societal good) and ugly smut (the deliberate devolution of the role of women through obscene, distorted depictions) have been hopelessly confused.' (Brownmiller, 1975)

Pornographic Images, Crimes, Censorship & the Law

What is the relationship between viewing pornography and committing sex crimes? How does pornography affect the mind, body, relationships, the perception of women in society? An interesting academic essay which explores these ideas.

The Science behind Pornography & Addiction

From the essay: 'The notions of 'sexual addiction' generally, including 'pornography addiction' as well as the recent concern with 'online cyber sex addiction' are highly questionable to most scientists.
So-called sex addiction may be nothing more than learned behavior that can be unlearned; labels such as 'sex addict' may tell us more about society’s prejudices than the client; scientists who have undertaken studies of exposure to sex materials report that despite high levels of exposure to pornography, few negative effects are observed.'

Study of the Brain while watching Pornography

By studying men watching pornographic videos, researchers in Canada have pinpointed areas of the brain that become active when the men tried to avoid being stimulated. In evolutionary terms, these regions of restraint (the prefrontal cortex) are newer than the more primitive areas where the sexual urges arise in the first place (the limbic system).

Sexual Content in Adult Games: Soft to Hardcore

From the essay: 'Sex is an incredibly immersive experience that affects all the senses deeply. Games that hope to fully simulate this experience must affect as many senses as they possibly can to recreate a sexy aesthetic. Devices such as the Sinulator™, Interactive Fleshlight, and SeXBox allow players to feel sexual stimuli while playing a game. Visually, computers and consoles are easily capable of recreating the sights and sounds of sex, too.'

Adult Entertainment Industry Benefits from File Sharing

From the website: 'While the music industry sweats bullets over the threat from file sharing programs like Napster, Freenet and Gnutella, the folks over in adult entertainment are greeting the juggernaut with a good deal less concern. In fact, with something approaching ... elation?'

A Study of the Sexual Behaviour of Street Kids

From the essay: 'This study gathered information on street kids’ perceptions of sexual behaviour and coercion. They conducted interviews with 121 street children from Bangalore. The boys in the study commonly referred to sex as 'work'.
74 (61%) out of 121 boys were sexually active. Boy to boy anal sex was the most commonly reported sexual behaviour, followed by vaginal sex.'

New Technology & Pornography: Google & Cell Phones

Some new research concludes that Google Internet search requests via cell phone are mostly to find porn, and at a rate twice what Google encounters from its regular wired Internet users. Nearly one in five of Google wireless searches are for words associated with adult entertainment. Indeed, the Google study found porn inquiries outnumbered the combined tally of the next four most popular Google mobile search topics.

Porno Tube: The Internet & Amateur Adult Sites

PornoTube (the pornographic version of YouTube) is a free adult website where you can upload your own xxx video clips to share and view pornographic movies (for free, pay per minute, weekly rental or buy).
PornoTube is one of the most popular adult sites on the Internet. It is interesting to consider if this is a more moral form of pornography - in that the participants are willing, informed, in control and presumably getting off on exhibiting themselves.

The Porn Myth: Turning Men Off Real Naked Women

From the essay: 'Young men and women are being taught what sex is, how it looks, what its etiquette and expectations are, by pornographic training - and this is having a huge effect on how they interact. Far from having to fend off porn-crazed young men, young women are worrying that they can hold their attention.'

Statistics on Teen Exposure to Internet Pornography

* 44% of teens ages 13 - 17 said they had 'seen websites that are X-rated or have sexual content.' (TIME, 5/10/99)
* 15% of online teens ages 12 - 17 say they have lied about their age to gain access to a Web site (Pew Survey, 2001)
* Most girls (ages 13 - 18) say they can get around parents rules … Nearly half say they’re able to get into a porn site (42%). (2002 Girl Scout Research Institute)
* 25% of children ages 10 - 17 who use the Internet regularly are exposed involuntarily to pornography (pictorial material). (March 2003 Youth and Society)

U.S. Free Speech: First Amendment Protects Online Porn

Business was booming for the online adult industry in 1996 when President Bill Clinton signed a bill threatening the future of the cybercenterfold phenomena. Called the Communications Decency Act (CDA), the law made it a felony offense to use the Internet for display or transmission of indecent material that could be seen by a minor. It was Congress' first attempt to regulate online pornographers, and the outcome foreshadowed a second attempt two years later.
Clinton had barely affixed his signature before the American Civil Liberties Union and American Library Association sued to block the CDA. A three-judge federal panel in Philadelphia said the law undermined free speech rights and ruled it unconstitutional. Undaunted, Congress tried again.

Eroticism of Inequality: Virtual Child Pornography

From the website: 'The United States Supreme Court has recently ruled (2002) that virtual child pornography is protected free speech, partly on the grounds that virtual pornography does not harm actual children. This is not to say child pornography is completely harmless. Actual or virtual, it eroticizes inequality; in a sexist society it therefore contributes to the subordination of women.'

Virtual Child Pornography & the U.S. Supreme Court

From the essay: 'Child pornography is an exception to First Amendment freedoms because it exploits and abuses our nation's youth. The latest trend in that industry is 'virtual child' pornography which does not use real children or images of real identifiable children. When the object of desire is not a child, but merely a combination of millions of computer pixels crafted by a skilled artist, can the government ban this allegedly victimless creation?'
