Pornstars are psychologically as healthy as other women?


I'm not saying it's true, I'm just pointing out that's what a study has found. And it's reported not in some third-rate publication either.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/porn-stars-and-the-naked-truth-8348388.html

It is just one study. However, it does make this note:

"Some descriptions of actresses in pornography have included attributes such as drug addiction, homelessness, poverty, desperation and being victims of sexual abuse," they said. "Some have made extreme assertions, such as claiming that all women in pornography were sexually abused as children. Stereotypes of those involved in adult entertainment have been used to support or condemn the industry and to justify political views on pornography, although the actual characteristics of actresses are unknown because no study on this group of women has been conducted."


Basing your judgment on one study is better than basing it on zero.

Only Gerrymandering saved the GOP from losing the House...


. . . and they know it. This election would be so much more decisive if they hadn't redrawn the districts. Now they're entrenched at least till 2022, but I'm thinking more districts are going to turn Democratic in the decade.
