Response to 4th law of robotics (Reply #3)

Sun Nov 25, 2012, 11:44 PM

4. A few other interesting details:


"One of the main claims by commentators on the industry has been that actresses have frequently experienced sexual abuse in childhood, but the results show no statistically significant difference between the two groups of women."


No significant difference between sexual abuse in childhood between the two groups of women. That's one I would have predicted. It's funny how many anti-porn crusaders willingly share the fact that they were abused. But thank goodness, it didn't effect their mind the way it did sex workers, right?

However there were a few differences between pornstars and the control group:

". . . they had first had sex at a lower age: 15 rather than 17. On the negative side, industry workers had a history of more drug and alcohol use, and problems possibly linked to sensation-seeking personalities."


I'm proud to say, I would have predicted these, too.

Then, at the end we have the feminist Dawn Foster commenting, "The study's main objective seems to be to prove that not all women in porn are exploited: no one has argued that."

Ms. Foster, what do you have in your ears? That's exactly what some people have argued.
