Too tired to wank

MGK has a good rap-up of some of the latest articles on the Internet filtering debacle titled ‘prohibited’ does not equal ‘illegal’, well worth a read.

Of interest is a study MGK found by Todd Kendall, from the Economics Department of Clemson University, who thinks the proverbial “pornography use causes sex crime” accusation is invalid.  Kendall’s research indicates that since the internet came online, and thus freer and greater access to pornography has become readily available, the rate of sex crimes has dropped. There may be other reasons for the drop, as the Ohio.com article states,  but it may also be that, to put it bluntly,  some rapes have been avoided because the perpetrators were too worn out from too much wanking?

  1. Maybe your post title should have been ‘too wanked out to rape.’ 😀

    I have read a related study in Japan, that when pornography and prostitution were legalised sexual assault decreased dramatically.

  5. @ DB, nothing is too low on this blog. lol
