Does pornography lead to rape?
Studies show that of the 200 million people online at any time between 25 to 30% are using pornography sites. The only words entered in search engines more often than ‘sex’ are ‘the’ and ‘and’. At the time of writing there were more than 400,000 websites worldwide that offer child pornography, which is illegal in every country in the world but despite this there was a 345% increase in child porn websites in a 5 month recorded period in 2003 ( Cornwall Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre).
There are differing opinions on this issue within society. However, in the majority of pornography, women are depicted as the passive image and men are in control of what they use that image for. This form of inequality may lead to some men wanting to replicate that power relationship with real women, not just images.
Research has shown that exposure to ‘extreme’ pornography increased risk of developing pro-rape attitudes, beliefs and behaviours, and committing sexual offences. Although this was also true of some pornography which did not meet the extreme pornography threshold, it showed that the effects of extreme pornography were more serious.
Except for the minority of people who think that you should show anything, including rape – everyone supports some form of censorship. Therefore, it is not a question of being for or against censorship; it’s about where you draw the line and why. Why should one censor? Take advertising as an example. If advertising didn’t work, multi-national companies would not bother spending literally millions on advertising their wares. If the adverts have an effect on society and the buying public, then we are entitled to assume that pornography will also have an effect.
