Republicans are always trying to take a moral high ground in their constant struggle against the depraved Democrats. Their latest claim to morality for this year’s election is calling for a crackdown on pornography.

“Current laws on all forms of pornography and obscenity need to be vigorously enforced,” is what Republicans have added to a draft of their official platform according to Reuters. If Mitt Romney is elected, it could mean a change in obscenity’s legal definition as well as more blocking software use to scrub out internet pornography.po

The Republican Party has always been perceived to be the party of big business. Would it not be beneficial to their economic policy to leave the $2 to $13 billion adult industry alone? Publicly they would have to condemn it but the reality is that pornography is a real industry. How could they benefit from trying to crush a contributor to the economy? (If someone has an explanation please leave a comment because as you can tell my understanding of economics is extremely low)

The decision to attack the porn industry must be based on morality. However a study by Benjamin Edelman from 2009 revealed that it was primarily conservative (or “Red”) states that had the highest consumption of pornography.

The top ten states with porn subscriptions per 1000 homes according to the study:

Utah……………………………..5.47 (Red state)
Alaska…………………………..5.03 (Red state)
Mississippi…………………….4.30 (Red state)
Hawaii…………………………..3.61 (Blue state)
Oklahoma………………………3.21 (Red state)
Arkansas………………………..3.12 (Red state)
North Dakota………………….3.05 (Red state)
Louisiana……………………….3.01 (Red state)
Florida…………………………..3.01 (Blue state)
West Virginia…………………2.94 (Red state)

This table is not meant to condemn the Red states for their interest in pornography. Blue states are more interested in escorts sites than regular pornography, which makes them just as “depraved” as their conservative countrymen. The question I’m asking is what are Republicans trying to accomplish by with their proposed crackdown?

On paper it elevates them on a moral level but it’s clear that in real life Republicans like pornography and sex as much as any red (or blue) blooded American. My advice to the Republican party would be to just let bygones be bygones with our industry. The crackdown will alienate them further from a billion dollar industry and it underlines the hypocrisy that can arise from hiding natural human urges behind a breastplate of morality.

    why u talking politics? where are the girls?

  • Cunt Hands

    Probably because its relevant to the porn industry and worth exploring something that may hinder your future accessibility to the porn you so richly love, Dale.

    Girls are on the main page. If you didn’t want to read, should have just stayed there.

    Beat me to it Mr. Hands.

    We’re interested in much more than girls here. We’re interested in the status of our industry, sexual health, tabloid scandals, etc.

    Think of the Sex.com Blog as the articles in old Playboy. They aren’t meant to be erotic but they can be titillating. It’s a place where you can mentally jerk-off and sometimes that means talking politics.
