Just out of interest - South Africa has a bit of controversy going with our major pay-TV provider, DSTV, talking about adding a porn channel.

One of our unions, Solidarity, claims that porn is linked to higher rates of anti-female violence. It is a big issue out here.

The thing is this seems to me to be a matter of the same sort of hysteria you get with violent computer games, or movies, or books, or music, or just about anything else where people somehow expect us all to lose the ability to tell fantasy from reality.

Do you know of any good sources where I can start doing some proper research on this?

I'd recommend Googling "pornography anti-female violence studies" and see what shows up. I just did, and I would recommend the Wikipedia article and whatever links are at the end of it as a good place to start. Good luck!

Great story, well done! I'd love to meet a Daphne someday!

Bruce: I'd recommend "Defending Pornography: Free Speech, Sex and the Fight for Women's Rights," by Nadise Strossen, former president of the ACLU.

You might also find worthwhile "Watching Sex: How Men Really Respond to Pornography" by David Loftus.

Hope this is helpful!
