When it comes to pornography, there's one thing we can say for sure: It's more available than ever. If you have a computer - or even a smartphone - and a connection to the Internet, there is an endless, boundless, and growing stream of videos and images to watch. What we don't know for sure are the effects of having so much streamable smut.
Anti-pornography activists argue that pornography degrades women; that it turns us on to increasingly graphic and extreme forms of sex; that it affects our sex lives by influencing our perceptions of sex; that it is designed to become addictive. Those on the other side of the debate say that pornography is a form of sexual expression, that expressing ourselves sexually is a natural form of being human and that studies haven't proved that pornography - even hardcore pornography - has any ill effects.
