Internet Ethics - No one denies that the Internet is the most useful tool for research, business, and education, yet the Internet is the subject of a topic that is as controversial as the legalities of abortion or homosexual rights. Many racy, illegal, and controversial materials are available on the Internet such as pornography and pirated software; on the other hand, many educational tools are on-line as well. This brings a need for a case of ethics in the Internet realm.

Contrasting Romance Novels and Pornography: Male and Female Preferences - Contrasting Romance Novels and Pornography: Male and Female Preferences I don’t think I’ve ever read a romance novel, not for school, and certainly not for my own enjoyment.

The Church Must Church Stop the Pornograhy Epidemic in America - Pornograhy consumption has increased markedly over the last few decades, primarily due to advent and popularity of regular, affordable, and high speed internet connections (Eberstadt & Layden 13; "The History of Modern Pornography."). While pornography has been around for thousands of years, never has porn been as used or abused (8). This increase in usage is causing more problems than it is solving. Healthy perceptions of sexuality are being skewed as people are now relying on porn’s vivid and explicit images to provide sexual education, causing true intimacy to be lost amidst a desensitized sexual libido (Struthers 1; “What’s Wrong With Pornography?” 1; Dubinsky 1; Zillmann 27)....   [tags: Anti Porn Essays]
