    How exactly is it a problem?

    The only thing I'd say is negative about porn is that it gives people unrealistic expectations. A lot of the things portrayed in porn are from a male perspective. It's one thing to enjoy porn for the purposes of getting off or setting the mood when with your partner. However, one should definitely not model their own sex lives by the techniques they see portrayed in porn.

    Twenty-some years ago, if you wanted porn, you had to seek it out. Playboy was around, and Hustler, but they were behind the counter and you had to ask for them. The more extreme stuff could only be had at "adult stores" which usually kept a low profile and did not advertise, trying to avoid police attention.

    In the past two decades of the Internet, it has become something you had to try to actively avoid, if you didn't want it in your house. It shows up in your email. If you aren't careful you'll hit a porn site by accident and sometimes they try to take over your computer and prevent you from navigating away from the site. You need Norton or other good security progs to keep this from happening. You have to choose between keeping your blocks so high that they might filter content you NEED to access (like women looking for info on mammography) vs keeping the porn out. If you have children, this is a substantial issue.

    You don't want a 10-14yo seeing some of this crap, especially the more extreme and bizarrre fetish stuff. Obsession with porn, especially the more extreme forms, can lead to various sexual disfunctions and psychological problems, especially if that exposure begins at an early age. Also objectivification, unreasonable expectations, over-sexualization, etc.

    Making all porn sites that portray actual sex acts have a .xxx domain name would help contain the problem, I hope.

    Women have had unrealistic expectations since humans developed imagination, it's about time men even it up.

    What's the point? It seems like it would just make it easier to find porn.

    I didn't think it was possible to make it easier to find porn.
