    If you're in a relationship, then I think it's wrong (or at least unnecessary). Why would you want to look at a naked stranger when you can look at your partner naked? It's real and accessible, unlike pictures of strange people you've never met.

    I don't know if you are a christian, but even if you are not, pornography is wrong because you should only look at the person you will be married to. Porn only causes violent thought and behavior and it causes some people, especially men, to be unable to control sexual behaviors, resulting in rape. If you are a christian, you should know that it is immoral. I hope you are trying to find out if it's wrong or not, and not just trying to prove a point. Think about how much you will regret it in the future. It may please you at the time, but your future wife/girlfriend won't appreciate it and you won't be happy about it either. Good luck.

    no, it is not wrong ,as long as you stay within the norm of your viewing : adults only .........

    of course , if that stops you from having a normal life and you gets too involved, watching pornography constantly ,perhaps ? you may want to control your behavior ,if it has become a constant habit ?.........

    perhaps you are young ? or you are one that enjoys looking at pornography for relaxation ?

    just make sure , it does not become your whole life ........with no others entertainments

    have a good day ))

    No its not wrong as long as its consenting adults. ifepathlight your statement that-

    Pornography is one of the most destructive things of the mind

    Is wrong repression of adult sexuality is the most destructive thing to the mind porn is a multi billion dolar industry if it made people serial killers there would be a millons of active serial killers right now. That idea was invented to use as proporganda by the Christean right. Ironcly a recent study showed alot of so called moral church going people watch porn.

    Tati the idea so called moral people dont watch is also wrong they are the biggest consumers of porn. To have high morals you dont need to be sexually repressed.

    Well, as long as it isn't child pornography, or the people participating in it aren't being forced to do it, I don't see why it would be wrong. Just don't let it get in the way of normal life:)

    There is nothing wrong with "some" porn. There are some sites that have tasteful young women in non degrading poses. I haven't found their equal in viewing Men's sites though.

    My taste run a little of the beaten track and I work in a dance club and as the saying goes sometimes swing both ways. I have friends of both sexes and have been the "star" of a few home made films myself (and I have all the film, memory cards and everything else taken) locked in my safe and no I won't put it on the net.

    Porn on the net is for the most part harmless and I think all of it is nothing but posed images. The only porn I do not stand for is that depicting rape, snuff or any thing what so ever dealing with child porn (don't even get me started on that).

    Porn is visual sex, sex is healthy and natural (please keep it and yourselves clean and healthy), its fun and doesn't hurt anyone (unless you want it to of coarse :) )

    To continue looking causes you to think upon things that you most likely should not be.

    You did not state your age so assume you are someone of young age, for an adult would rarely ask such.

    The Scriptures state to look upon in lust is sin. It is the same as commiting the act you are thinking upon.

    Not to mention it tempts you to proceed with more and more progressive type trash as this!

    I think it is. After all, it isn't your body that your looking at it's someone else's. To me, the body is a sacred part of us not to be lightly shared in any way.

    You posted in Women's Studies, so I'll answer appropriately....no, I see nothing wrong with women viewing porn...I have my own small collection in fact and there are times when I'm not in the mood, that watching porn will get me there.
