Frame of mind

Some scholars think consumption of porn is related to increase incidents of rape, the easy access of smartphone and internet has made porn more available. Sometimes viewer with a sadistic mindset get tilted to commit the horrible crime against most susceptible woman whether child or adult. But the sick mindset is more responsible for such crimes against women than watching porn. Another major concern is large circulation of rape videos; most of the videos were recorded to threaten rape victims then leaked intentionally or otherwise.

Ethical porn is an expression of sexuality; sex and porn go hand in hand till one deals it with maturity and common sense. Men and women are not shy to express their sexuality; porn is only such an expression.
