Pornography and the End of Masculinity

From an independent media site
AlterNet: Sex and Relationships: Pornography and the End of Masculinity

Author is Dan Hazen, executive editor of AlterNet. From the text:
“I have always been part of the collective liberal progressive libertarian value system that accepts pornography as a legitimate expression of the first amendment. Part of that thinking is that women participate in porn films of their own free will, and the porn often represents fantasies — though sometimes quasi-violent or degrading — that people actually have. So as long as people are merely acting in porn films, and there is no coercion, or law-breaking, it is acceptable.

But I’ve changed my mind. No, I’m not a prude, or anti-sex. Nor do I think there should be a national campaign to snuff out all porn. In fact, I sometimes watch certain kinds of porn. But what has become clear to me is that, under the guise of the first amendment, a huge and powerful porn industrial complex has grown out of control.”
