CBS reports “Porn Might be Good for You”

By | March 12, 2010

That was CBS’ headline. Although no where in the report did it mention any health benefits. The report only stated that there was no real link between the availability of porn and sexually-related crimes.

This was unethical sensationalism on the part of CBS; downplaying the real message of the study. But on the bright side, the study did provide some good news.

I’ve always suspected that the link between pornography and sexually-related crimes was highly exaggerated. But today, CBS News reported what appears to be the first empirical study the subject, which concluded there was no link at all. It was just a myth.

Although, what’s more directly relevant to me was the number of women who download porn: 34%. Even though that statistic is limited to readers of a specific magazine. That’s a huge potential market for me… that haven’t found me. Maybe I need to hire a publicist.
