Worst thing about porn IMHO is the extremely warped impression it can give men - especially young men - about what women are really like and what women really want and what women really do. I think that's probably the most damaging aspect of pornography specifically.

Oh, and Harlequin does not publish "porn".

In the Romance Novel industry, the definitions are as follows:

Pornography - sex with no emotional connection.

Erotica - sex with an emotional connection.

Most women really aren't into porn and that's why Romance publishers, whose books are aimed at women, don't publish it. (Really, they don't - it doesn't sell.) But erotica has become hugely popular over the last few years and most of the publishers are jumping on the bandwagon. If you want to know what "women's porn" is like, just look up Ellora's Cave on a Google search.

oooo, a conspiracy. Maybe we should investigate. Got your IP tracer ready?

Wait, I would *hope* if they were the same person they'd be smart enough not to submit the same birth date. Although perhaps for convenience's sake, they only changed the year and re-utilized the same month/day.

On aside, my laptop's backspace button contact is almost non-functional which makes typing a bear. Time for a new laptop.

I think personally that its a disgrace. Its something that should be filled with love and they do it for money or fame. Yuck. Thankfully I have a hubby who agrees so their isnt an issue. I guess it depends on the persons morals and opinion, some like it for fantasy or ideas. I just dont happen to be one of them

This is too easy.. in a word "Exploitation". It is degrading and reduces a person from a whole spiritual human being to a body part.

And in a marriage, well I just read a phrase from Larry, "intimacy reduction fantasy". How apropos.
