It is likely the entire experience (sharing) more than it is the flick itself.

I am not actually so sure if it is the “sharing” per se. Women get turned on knowing that the man is aroused. (Supposedly, women will often masturbate thinking about their own body, imagining how beautiful it must look to the man.)

Also, the more excited the man gets (as a result of watching porn), the more enjoyable the sex would be for the woman.

Yes, females want to be wanted; like the Cheap Trick song!

Since women are the ones who are (often) exploited, I think their comments are much more useful than ours.

Actually, there could be a way to see if internet porn has had any positive impact on our society. I imagine one of the major reasons why people get divorced is falling in love with another person. In most cases (not all) people “fall in love” for no other reason than wanting to have sex with another person; after a few adventurous nights, they realize they have never been in love. So, if some of the cheating could be prevented by porn, the number of divorces should be declining.

Okay, just looked it up: It is declining. Of course, Zeus only knows what the real cause here is.

Per capita divorce rates 1990-2005:
1991, 0.47%
1992, 0.48%
1993, 0.46%
1994, 0.46%
1995, 0.46%
1995, 0.43%
1997, 0.43%,
1998, 0.42%,
1999, 0.41%,
2000, 0.41%,
2001, 0.40%,
2002, 0.38%
2005, 0.36%

What’s interesting about those statistics is what they don’t say.  Since the Internet started, the availability of porn has exploded.  This was supposed to be the beginning of the end of western society.  Divorce rates as well as rape rates have come slightly down since then.  If porn is so destructive where is the evidence?

http://www.independent.org/publications/working_papers/article.asp?id=1300

Abstract: In this paper I examine the hypothesis that the frequency of rape is increased when another source of sex (prostitution) is limited or unavailable. To test this theory I regressed the rape rate in available OECD countries against a proxy for the availability of prostitution. The relationship was found to be anti-correlated at about the 90% confidence level. Using this model, it is estimated that if prostitution were legalized in the United States, the rape rate would decrease by roughly 25% for a decrease of approximately 25,000 rapes per year.

Introduction

In this paper I examine the hypothesis that rape is caused, at least in part, by the lack of other available sexual outlets. This could be at the time of the rape or due to attitudes created in the rapist earlier in life. This hypothesis is tested by regressing the rape rate in available Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries against a proxy for the availability of sex through prostitution. OECD countries were picked in an attempt to minimize the economic differences between the countries in the sample. To measure the availability of prostitution in a given country, I divided the monthly per capita income by an estimate of the low-end price of a prostitute in a given country. The data for prostitution prices comes for the World Sex Guide, which includes data about prostitution prices reported by men who have hired prostitutes all over the world. The data for the homicide rate comes from the International Crime Statistics, the Statistical Abstracts of the United States, and The World Factbook of Criminal Justice Systems.

And then there is the Bonobo, where all conflicts are resolved by having sex. It seems to work quite well for them.

When sex is associated with sin and evil it tends to become evil. When associated with love, beauty and intimate sharing it becomes beautiful.

Wouldn’t the Bonobo have problems with run away STDs and pregnancies?

Noy anymore than humans, Bonobos engage in sex in many ways (including mutual masturbation), regardless of estrus, so their sexual activity has no bearing on fertility rate.
They got this thing solved. “Peace trough sex”

I love it (not) when we are compared to the hard-working bees or the sex-obsessed-peace-loving Bonobos. (BTW, the Bonobos are still very violent when interacting with neighbouring tribes.)

So yes, the Bonobos got “peace through sex,” but why stop there? They also have sex with their kids! Parenting through sex: I guess they got that thing solved as well.  wink

The bonobo’s sound like they have it fairly good (except for what they do to their offspring), Humans are somewhat like them. IMO it’s weird and funny to discover that many animals engage in sexual behavior that would make Ron Jeremy blush.

Bonobos are not violent, except in self-defense. Even then if the intruder is a Bonobo from another family, s/he will be greeted with loving caresses and accepted.

Human women (in general) don’t like to go from partner to partner.  They like to get involved in committed relationships.  Human males (in general), even though they like to go from partner to partner don’t like the idea of sharing their women.  They become jealous and possessive.  Seems like the same evolutionary pressures that developed these traits would have influenced Bonobos, so I’m not sure how Bonobos get past these emotional problems.
