Ron Jeremy says violent video games 'worse' than porn


Violent video games have "a much bigger negative influence on kids" than pornography, a leading porn star has claimed.

He said parents should be more worried about the harmful effects of such games.

Mr Jeremy's comments were made at a session called the Great Porn Debate during the Consumer Electronics Show, CES, in Las Vegas.

His comments angered gamers, who accused him of "ignorance".

Mr Jeremy's appearance at CES in Las Vegas caused some raised eyebrows.

I have allowed all my kids to play games, if the call of duty series of games IS DEEMED VIOLENCE, then i pleade guity, however i feel its just a more modern type of playing soldiers. If we had this when young, you bet we wouold be playing.

In regards to porn, I would still hope that jack does not know the word porn, we have never talked about this subject.
laughs out loudish, what was the name of the film man.
he watches all the simpsons, surley they would have to have had the word or subject matter at least once ?
Violence is more detrimental to children than sex.
This argument is summed up pretty easily for me thanks to quotes from Ted Bundy.

"There's no question about it. The FBI's own study on serial homicide shows that the most common interest among serial killers is pornography. Well-meaning, decent people will condemn the behavior of a Ted Bundy, while they're walking past a magazine rack full of the very kinds of things that send young kids down the road to be Ted Bundys. But I'll tell you, there lots of other kids playing in streets around this country today who are going to be dead tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day and month, because other young people are reading the kinds of things and seeing the kinds of things that are available in the media today."

"Listen, I'm no social scientist, and I haven't done a survey. I don't pretend that I know what John Q. Citizen thinks about this. But I've lived in prison for a long time now. And I've met a lot of men who were motivated to commit violence just like me. And without exception, without question, every one of them was deeply involved in pornography."
I know when I'm trying to find reliable, objective information regarding the impact of media on the general population, a source I consider is Ted Bundy. Sociopaths KNOW society, let me tell you.
Yes lets ignore the opinions of the serial killers who are telling us what got them started down the path of being mass murderers.
I will agree that pornography is not the cause of violence in these types of criminals since pornography is rampant in the lives of most men in the U.S. My point is that though it's not the underline cause, it is a variable in the equation. Yes these people do have mental and social problems before their crimes are committed, but it would be interesting to see how these individuals would have turned out without the influence that pornography has on the already sick mind.
It's not really a subject I'm all that well versed in though. Maybe I'm talking out my ass.

That is what internet forums are for! ;-)
Lmao!

The glue sniffing is just to take away the conscious.
If you are going to use Ted Bundy, then I am going to paraphrase the NRA.

Porn doesn't kill people. People kill people.
As someone who is completely against any person owning a gun your clever paraphrase falls on deaf ears Reggie, but I will bite anyway.

The reason the NRA can get away with such an argument is because most murders that are caused using a gun are done by those who consciously go out, get a gun, and perform a crime with it (not talking about accidental shootings). These people, if not for the gun, would arguably just go out with a different weapon the reek havoc.

However with the idea of pornography causing violence in the rare serial killer the same does not apply. According to wikipedia there have been about 145 serial killers in the U.S., documented famous serial killers that is. Going down the list you will notice a large portion of them targeted women and had some sexual aspect to their crimes, or targeted men with a sexual aspect. It may very well be possible that some of these murders would have have occurred if they weren't challenged to fulfill their fantasies that they formed at a young age due to their consumption of certain pornographic material.
A prime example of this is Harvey Glatman. He raped and murdered three women by telling them they were going to pose for bondage photographs.
