Hi Jamie and everyone!

I have heard programs on porn addiction, and they say that kids who see playboy or other explicitly sexual content as children often become addicted to porn as adults, and these are from many walks of life including pastors. This addiction can wreck a marriage. This addiction is a real stronghold, as the programs have said, and so it's a hard addiction to break. I think that responsibile adults should look after children in their care in this way as well as from other dangers.

I do not know anyone with this addiction.

Laws are what they are, Roger. They're there for a reason, just like it's against the law to cell cigarettes to those under 18 and alcohol to those under 18 or 21 depending upon the state. I wouldn't advocate allowing 16 year olds to buy alcohol any more than I would advocate allowing children under 18 access to the four books I listed as examples of true adult books. While their parents are still legally liable for their actions, they can't be allowed to purchase alcohol (and potentially harm another person maybe driving while drunk) and I'm sure there are valid reasons for not allowing true adult content for minors as well.

I don't think you'd be very successful in repealing those kinds of laws.

My point was simply to give true examples of ADULT books, not the books that are currently getting marked as adult.
