As porn use goes up, rape rate goes down!

As porn use goes up, rape rate goes down!
Quote:-The incidence of rape in the United States has declined 85% in the past 25 years while access to pornography has become freely available to teenagers and adults. The Nixon and Reagan Commissions tried to show that exposure to pornographic materials produced social violence. The reverse may be true: that pornography has reduced social violence.

Porn Up, Rape Down

I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to even be a causal relationship.

Are you mad? It's definitely guns that cause that.

Well, all that friction's gotta go somewhere.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

Correlation =/= causation.

However, in this case, I hope it is causal - cause it'd be awesome!

It's depressing. Increasing tendency to substituting the real and physical with the vicarious and the make belief, that is.

Correlation does not prove causation.

I always wondered if members and staff of the Meese Pornography Commission went on to become vile sexual predators due to their prior mindset on the effects of pornography and then their MASSIVE exposure to it during their investigation.

Inquiring minds want to know!!
