A little porn is 'good for you'
By Emma-Kate Symons and Kate Mackenzie
August 17, 2004

PORNOGRAPHY is good for people, the academic leading a taxpayer-funded study of the subject said yesterday, as the Coalition and Labor traded jibes about an Opposition push to stop online porn reaching home computers.

Alan McKee, who with academics Catharine Lumby and Kath Albury is conducting the Understanding Pornography in Australia study, said that a survey of more than 1000 porn-users must be taken into account as Labor considers forcing all internet service providers to automatically filter hardcore porn to protect children.

"The surprising finding was that pornography is actually good for you in many ways," Dr McKee said.

"When you look at people who are using it in everyday life, over 90 per cent report it has had a very positive effect."

Dr McKee said porn users reported it had taught them "to be more relaxed about their sexuality" and marriages were healthier, while porn made people think about another person's pleasure and made them less judgmental about body shapes.

"The more we try and turn porn into something that's seen to be bad and has to be kept away from families, the more problems we might be causing for ourselves."

Asked whether such results meant pornography was good for children, Dr McKee said: "I think you come there to an issue we can't answer - should children who are 16-years-old be allowed to be sexual?"

But the author of the policy before Mark Latham's office - supported by senior Labor figures including ALP national president Carmen Lawrence and communications spokesman Lindsay Tanner - Australia Institute executive director Clive Hamilton said: "No man who regularly uses pornography can have a healthy sexual relationship with a woman.

"The question is - how much are we willing to pay to protect our children from damaging pornographic images?"

The internet industry is up in arms at the proposals, which it says would be unworkable, and would punish smaller ISPs.

Chief executive of the Internet Industry Association, Peter Coroneos, said there were "technical and economic consequences", such as slowing down internet connections, to the approach recommended by the Australia Institute.

Complaints about internet porn are handled by the Australian Broadcasting Authority agency Netalert.

Communications Minister Helen Coonan accused Labor of "sheer hypocrisy" over the push to crack down on internet porn because its approach had been to "do nothing".

But Opposition IT spokeswoman Kate Lundy said Labor had pushed Canberra into legislating on spam and called for greater spending to educate parents, and increased funding for Netalert.


'Positive' porn ... California gubernatorial candidate Mary Carey vowed to wire the Governor’s Mansion with web cams and use the money to service State debt.

Good to see Labor up to its usual crap again. How dare I make my own decisions? Thats what the good old "we'll control you from the cradle to the grave" Labor party is for!

Dickheads. They REALLY think they can stop porn? I have 50 gig on disk and multiple videos that says they wont!!

Re: A little porn is 'good for you'

The other part scares me..... The part about reducing speeds.

I'd rather have no porn than have to surf it at 'reduced speed'. *shudders*

Casper, the Liberal party is the reason why you can't have a porn website in Australia. The put a stop to it several years ago and made us a laughing stock with the rest of the internet community.

Re: A little porn is 'good for you'

They seem to be worried about children accessing porn.. It's a safe way of exploring sexuality.. Either that or they can go to parties and get drunk, and end up getting some 15 year old pregnant. I'm not saying that internet porn should replace a healthy relationship but it's sure safer seeing it from behind a desk, than going out and getting into trouble..

Re: A little porn is 'good for you'

You can have a porn site in Australia, just not with a .au prefix. I've got quite a few Aussie p0rn site links if you want them...

As for Labor - they're communists.
