when you point fingers at the western culture, do check social network status of your friends who made it to colleges like IIT, BIT-mesra, IIM, IISc.

you will find most of them settled in the western countries.

why ??? only because of good pay or because they find it more civilized???

It is already MORAL POLICE everywhere in this country, Some idiot always want a law as to how others should behave. Now this one!!!!.

Also why not ban sex altogether?, or better still CASTRATE every male born in this country, SO there is no sex even and all women can be safe, Already the laws in this country are causing so much frustration and resentment among its citizen, I am not joking, Anyone who gets a good education or a good degree wants to leave this place anyway, It is time this nation showed some maturity and behaved like proper humans,

All these so called Knights fighting for morality are IN FACT TRYING TO POKE in the private affairs of others, They should not be encouraged, if you want to live like Human, Well if you want to be herded like cattle support them.

If we take a closer look at the world, The worst offenses against women are always taking place in the most restrictive societies where people are sexually frustrated. Only a liberal and open society can save women, Better research that before jumping into the morality crusaders bandwagon.

Is it even possible to ban Internet porn?
One’s freedom is another’s offence. It’s relative and it is applicable to everything. If someone finds a way out to circumvent, it is always possible. Even our lawyers always find fresh loopholes to save criminals. Look at our criminal laws—in any country. Despite having all these, are we able to curb criminal acts? Yes and no. But because criminal acts keep on happening doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t have criminal justice system. So, if there is a law to curb pron on the net, to some great extent it will curb these activities. But if “Internet-matured” people still want to watch it, like you said, there will be some workaround. But I must say, there should be some curbs.

The major objective of this chapter is to challenge the belief that exposure to child pornography is harmless and to demonstrate that exposure to child pornography can cause child sexual victimization in societies where this is proscribed. The diagram of Russell’s causal theory schematized in Figure 4.1 should help the reader to follow Russell’s theory. This model focuses primarily on female children as victims and on males as perpetrators. There are no equivalent data on females as perpetrators presumably because their proclivity to sexually abuse children is so much less prevalent than that of males.

The list on the top left of Figure 4.1 includes some of the more frequently cited causes of males’ proclivity to sexually victimize children. The following five quantitative findings of different researchers serve as summary indicators of males’ proclivity to sexually victimize children in the United States as of this writing (see the box on the lower left of the figure).

1. 10-15% of males report some likelihood of sexually abusing a child if assured that they would not be caught (N. Malamuth, personal communication, July 1986).

2. 21% of male undergraduates admitted to some sexual attraction to small children (Briere & Runtz, 1989).

3. Adult males’ sexual attraction to female adolescents is very prevalent and considered “normal“ for heterosexual males (Dietz & Sears, 1987-1988; Jenkins, 2001).

4. “Children [preadolescent girls] have some arousal value even for normal males“ (Freund, 1981, p. 137).

5. 38% of adult women disclosed being victims of child sexual abuse involving contact/ attempted contact; 54% involving non-contact (Russell, 1999).

According to Russell’s theory, exposure to child pornography causes adult males to perpetrate child sexual victimization when it predisposes them to sexually desire children, or intensifies this desire or undermines internal and external inhibitions against acting out this desire. In addition, children’s exposure to pornography can undermine their abilities to avoid, resist, or escape sexual victimization, thereby making them more vulnerable to sexual victimization. The three causal factors do not have to occur in any particular order.

The stupid people trying to blame it on porn are brain washed idiots from an irrational era. Before Isalamic fundamentalism came to India, India was a very open society and flirting and romance was easy to both men and women. From Kama Sutra to Krishna Lila to Khajurao Temples to couples yoga, all were very acceptable in Indian tradition. What was missing was sex crime.

What India really needs to do is spread the knowledge of civics or Dharma, concept of right and wrong from early age in primary schools and at homes by parents. We should start with our politicians and judges. And make sex education compulsory from age ten for all. Suppression of sex only leads to making PERVERTS and sex crimes. Open society leads to less sex crime as well as freedom and fun. Teaching children how to deal with their passions (that will always be there), in a humane and ethical manner, that is with right and wrong always at the back of their minds, is what is needed. (Sex education)

The problem with India is lack of educatuon and pathetic mindset. In every country there is porn so why over their people don’t go around raping each other? Because they are educated and those who watch porn are mature enough to realize that it is a fantasy not meant to take out in reality. Plus India is a democracy and banning something to prevent people from doing something in the comfort of their homes goes AGAINST DEMOCRACY, even if you feel it is “immoral”! The police, judicial system and the government need to prevent rapes by educated and punishing rapist in a way that would set an example, like in every democracy… Banning porn is STUPID and REGRESSIVE!

Every other nation should do so also since it is an unbelievable evil leaving damage and victims at all levels. These victims range from the women and men in the porn business- some slaves- some simply morally sick. Other victims include husbands and wives, victimized teenagers and those who have been raped or killed due to the enflaming of desires of porno users.
However, banning it in India will have no impact. Only those who ban it ,for themselves will have a y control. To that end there are many excellent filtering programs available. We use an excellent filter at http://www.wisechoice.net. You can also compare others at http://www.filterreview.org .

I don’t understand why India needs to ban online porn just because some other country has done so. Why don’t we use out creativity to resolve the concern. Porn cant be a motivation for rape. There has been rapes for a long time in our country and just that one case got highlighted all over India, does not mean the root cause is porn. There has to be a proper analysis done to see what the root cause of such things. My point of view is Porn certainly does not lead to Rape. Imbalance with Girls to Boys ratio and improper education are the root causes of rape. I feel people are being controlled for every bit of their life which is very wrong for the future.

Today’s internet pornography is like a tap that never runs dry. Unchecked pornography will create irreparable damage to the society and it will be too late by the time we realise this. I agree 100% that porn should be made difficult to access and if possible completely blocked by ISPs and the entire country.
In northern India, where the female to male ratio is low, easy access to porn leads to diabolical consequences. Hordes of unmarried and unemployed men descend in to urban areas where they can easily access porn through internet-cafes and pirated CDs. This affects their thinking to commit sexual violence against women.
This debate is long overdue and should have started a decade ago when the internet exploded.
