.XXX Will Increase the Amount of Porn Online? Who Knew?

10 Apr

The punchline here is not that the Deseret Times can do exceptionally simple math problems in its head; it’s that Utah is one of the most porn-consuming states in the whole USA.

There’s nothing new in this article. We’ve heard it all before.

The mere existence of pornography, we’re told, is destroying families, demeaning women, and stealing the innocence of children by telling them that Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy don’t exist.

Pornography is the reason your dishes don’t sparkle, your teeth have hard-to-clean stains, your favorite football team lost, you can’t raise decent cucumbers to save your life, and your toilet keeps getting stopped up.

If pornography didn’t exist — or was forced by law into the .XXX ghetto… er… resort — we wouldn’t need the Clean Air Act, Social Security, oil rig or coal mine safety regulations, or awkward conversations about what kind of sex we enjoy. After all, the less you know, the less you know to ask about… or for.

Interestingly enough, the comments area is rather mixed in its opinions. Some folks don’t see the big deal with porn being available online and others want to see it all shoved onto .XXX so they can pretend it doesn’t exist.

IMO, that seems to be the issue that gets the most folks riled up, regardless of whether they are for or against .XXX: whether naked reality should be easily accessible or whether it should be hidden away from view.

New .xxx Internet domain will only lead to more pornography

The formation of the new .xxx domain name for sexually explicit and pornographic material was approved on March 18 by the organization governing domain names, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). After the announcement, an executive stated, “ICANN’s decision to give .xxx final approval is a landmark moment for the Internet.”

While claiming to have the best interest of the Internet at heart, it appears the real interest is the revenue to be generated by selling domain names to porn distributors. According to ICMRegistry, the company authorized to oversee the .xxx domain, 528,335 websites have submitted domain name reservations as of March 28. At the anticipated cost of $60 per website, a whopping $31,700,100 in revenue is anticipated, and the numbers are growing.

It is unfortunate that so often pecuniary gain for the one controls the collective conscience of humanity more than decency and good judgment.

We have seen an interesting phenomenon with the Internet. As the supply of porn has increased, there has been a corresponding increase in the demand for such material. Yet policymakers continue to make decisions that effectively increase porn’s supply to those who are harmed the most by such content: children, individuals and families.

Social experts increasingly recognize that forming positive loving relationships, both in and out of the home, and seeing individuals as more than mere objects to be acted on are severely compromised when one uses porn.
