"Violent" pornography?

So what about the sensual/erotic stuff?

I recall a conversation I had with a co-worker years ago. because of her religious beliefs, any nudity was sexual in nature.
IE bathing, showering, changing clothes, it was all sexual. She said that we need to keep covered at all times, unless you seek to cause another person to have immoral thoughts.

Good to see the USA doesn't own the market on that way of thinking.

This isn't about blocking transmission, it's about blocking payment, the idea being if you take the money out of it, the supply will dry up.
High moral ground, even if not really practical on a country by country basis

And then the never-ending battle with local offices of "Paypal/Western Union/Whatever" will begin
Cause there is more than one way to pay for things on the internet :P

Iceland IS a "well regulated" and physically isolated country.
Well regulated in that THEY will look and you will PAY a heavy fine for your anti-social behavior, you could end up banned from the internet and with no money for booze (Icelandic national food of choice) hard to last through a long dark winter like that.

There is a woman who shops at the local supermarket, They had to cover up the magazines in one checkout because she complained her kids might see them. Well she home schools.

I can only imagine that when those kids hit college they will either be in complete shock at the real world or their dorm room walls will be covered in centerfolds from Hustler as they try and catch up.

I've seen that at K-mart. It seems if a women is baring more then half her breasts [usually the cosmopolitan magazine] then it gets one of those hiders.

Sounds like The Church of Christ. I went to a high school that was Church of Christ (I'm not CoC) and this is one of many things they tried to brain wash the non CoC members who were not already brainwashed with.

That's what happened to many of my high school classmates. They were so sheltered and brainwashed that once we graduated many of them became addicted to drugs or alcohol because they had been so sheltered.

I do not need a good looking person to be uncovered to have immoral thoughts though. That is why I find that argument from some people rather funny. Sure nudity and porn make things more fun, But the human mind can connect dots and find good looking people even under baggy clothing.
