well if you are a male over 15 and you use the internet
chances are you've come across it. (pun intended)
you don't even have to be that curious,
it could be a simple mistype (i got an eyeful trying to find www.boots.com)
or that email from that dodgy workmate that's been doing the rounds...
porn has been around for centuries,
generally hidden and for the select few,
thanks to the internet it is now just a couple of clicks away,
and if you have children that has to be a worry
because you can say a lot of things about porn
but it ain't romantic or innocent
and i suspect it isn't particularly good for the soul.

but then, what is the difference between erotica and porn?
why did fiercely intellegent journalist, broadcaster, poker player and all round good egg, victoria coren make a porn/erotic film?
porn isn't going to go away, we are sexual beings after all, we have to
how to navigate/negociate/avoid/appreciate it...
and a bit of self
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117318/">censorship</a> probably wouldn't go amiss.

"To me porn is usually visual and geared towards men." Lol, that's from the blog by the erotica author. To me it's the same thing, even if it's there to excite women. Or aliens. It seems like if it pleases her, it's not porn.
