There is a site http://www.obscenitycrimes.org.....pierce.cfm that has some interesting info on the relationship between a sex criminal and porn. It's an interview with retired NYPD detective, Raymond Pierce in Aug. 2000.

Gully, he talks about Ted Bundy and how he was introduced to porn by his own grandfather who was a creep/wierdo. Disturbing. Contrary to what he said on the Dobson video, his family was not the all-american family he wanted to portray.

Pierce believed that when Bundy told Dr. James Dobson in his death row interview that his (Bundy's) activities were fueled by pornography, he was telling the truth, based on his own experience with profiling sexual criminals. But, he also says that it can be documented that he (Bundy) wasn't telling the truth when he spoke about the all-American family he had.

Grandstanding, yes, and manipulation by confusing the truth with lies.

It is interesting stuff, if you like nightmares. This can be some scary stuff. Should it be on the support threads? I am always afraid that something I might say would be a trigger.

That's okay, bonita1. I am still new to the board and I don't know where things should go or how to talk about some of these things. They are interesting, to me anyway. Or used to be. Still is, I guess.

Anyway, some of the other members that have been here longer might be able to give us some input on how to go about talking about this subject.

Well, God knows I've essayed enough on battering theory in the support threads section.

And porn has come up several times here. Lots of times it's about a woman not liking that her boyfriend/husband looks at it. The more interesting cases are when the woman is being ignored and neglected by the boyfriend who prefers looking at porn than paying attention to his partner.

I tend to see those cases as more about neglect and abuse of a partner than about porn. Some people will do anything to distract themselves from their partners. They are jerks, is all.

But again and again, women will pipe up here and say "I'm a woman and I love porn" so it's not an exclusively male behavior.

I do observe that psychopaths have existed long before the invention of photographic pornography, so apparently porn is not required to create a psychopath or to inspire them to violent behavior.

I also observe that probably the majority of American men have seen photographs of naked women, yet only a vanishingly small number of men are violent criminals. So for sure, porn is neither necessary nor sufficient to cause criminal violence.

Ahh, but porn has probably existed for a long time, too. Just hasn't survived the ages.

The environmental influence theory for politicians and such just doesn't hold. If, by playing video games or looking at violent sex was so influencial, our streets would be flowing in blood.

There is a common denominator to most crimes or violent acts, however. It is alcohol. Not all of them, but most. It also doesn't mean they are drunk when they commit the act. Just that they had a drink or so. But that is still there.

And no, I can't cite the study. I have been out of the biz for a long time.

just ask the guy to give up porn and he can't. Why? because porn is addictive. Just like all the other addictive behaviors you mentioned, WD.

Men addicted to anything prefer their drug of choice to being close to their wives. Husbands and wives drift apart, marriage relationships are broken, families are destroyed.

I guess this brings up the thread about addictive behaviors being a choice and being a disease, doesn't it?

I will agree that a pleasure response (no pun intended) is set up in the brain. And i do believe that tolerance builds to porn. And I do believe that porn can cause physical problems as far as perfomance is concerned.

Not being an expert, i would say that it could meet the criteria for addiction.

I had someone say that a person was an addict because they were the expert and they said they were an addict. Another criteria being that you get in trouble somehow and are forced into a addiction rehab program. Therefore, you are an addict. Why else would you be there? Non-addicts aren't sent to rehab.

(I am being facetious in the third paragraph)
