    This question is frustrating, but I have to stop myself and realize that not everyone on DP is an American, so I shouldn't expect them to have a high-school level understanding of Civics and American governmental structure.

    We elect Representatives who's general moral character we agree with, and they in turn join with other elected Representatives in both the House and Senate. Together they debate, negotiate and compromise on policies reflecting that moral character.

    What you end up with is an imperfect one-size-fits-all policy.

    As they say at a military PX, we have 2 sizes: to big and to small.

    I think the same applies here. We have 2 kinds of policy: to conservative or to liberal.

As far as I am concerned, fetishes like this are a disease and people like Mr. Little are a disease vector.
    How in the **** does one "misuse" their own sexuality? That makes no goddamn sense.

    And, how does watching porn promote "mistreatment" of one's partners or women in general? That makes no damn sense either.

    Is the next step to put govt cameras in our bedrooms to make sure we don't engage in "obscene" behavior and "misuse" our sexuality?

    Too much to hope for, but I cannot do otherwise.

    There is a difference between depicting abuse and degradation as a subject of fictional material and glamorizing or promoting it as desirable and normal social conduct. His films did the latter and encouraged countless people to treat others as depicted in his films and to view such treatment as normal and healthy. There is no place for such things in a civilized society.
    With respect I would hazzard a guess that a fairly large section of society would find much of what you post on here objectionable. If you expect others to respect your right to propergate what you want even though they dislike it then shouldnt you return the favor? Do you not think theres an implied social contract here?

    This is interesting:

    "Based on Max Extreme 4, the city of Los Angeles in 1998 charged him with child pornography and distribution of obscenity. The fact that the actress was over the age of 18 was not disputed; they brought charges based solely on the fact that the actress was portraying a character who was underage."

    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Hardcore]Max Hardcore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]



    I will say, based upon my personal experience in the adult entertainment industry, that I was advised right from the start that it's against the law to pretend to be under-aged, and that if any customer ever asked for some sort of under-aged role-playing, I should refuse, state that it is illegal, and immediately show him the door.

    I complied with this based on my own disgust for pedophiles and my wish not to encourage them; I never really believed it was against the law, though.
    Apparently, however, it is.

    It's not; that entire case was struck down by a SCOTUS ruling.

    Good thing we have guys like you to tell us what's "decent".

    You social conservatives are all the same. Small government...except when my sense of "decency" is offended.

    Bible-thumping religious conservatives with too much time on their hands. Only they know what's moral and decent.
