I highly recommend taking a look at Judith Reisman’s September article, “The Impotence Pandemic.” It has long been touted by relationship therapists that a little pornography can spice up our sex lives. It is believed that male impotence is caused by a mere lack of visual stimulation: add a little porn and the problem goes away. Or so some think . . . Reisman quotes a sampling of psychiatry professors, neurobiologists, and neuroscientists to demonstrate that rather the opposite is true: Pornography actually does more to contribute to impotence than cure it.

As she was looking for topics started by pregnant women, a couple of … Continue reading →
An article has come to my attention that I find very interesting. It is entitled “The Porn Myth” by Naomi Wolf. Wolf is known for her 1991 book, The Beauty Myth, where she argues that women are hurt by the pressure to conform to Western culture’s concept of female beauty. The New York Times included The Beauty Myth on a list of the 70 most important books of the 20th century. Wolf is one of the premier voices of the “third wave” of the feminist movement.
