Pornography has been, and always will be, the greatest creation in entertainment history. So why would any country want to enforce a ban on porn?
How is porn so difficult to control who views it that Iceland needs to impose a ban on the genre completely?
As a teenager, I remember trading baseball cards for Playboys with my friends. As I look back at those choices, I realize porn isn't as evil as the world makes it appear. It is a venue for men and women to release sexual tension. Some people even use it simply for curing boredom. Others use it as a visual dramatization of their already vivid imagination. It brings your guilty pleasures to life and allows you to enjoy them without having to explain your reasons.
But I don't have to sell you on the idea that porn is great. You know that. I just have to explain all the reasons why Iceland shouldn't ban it. And I have come up with 25 reasons. I just hope Iceland is watching.
25. Iceland Is How Far from the Rest of the World?
If any country wanted to ban porn, it shouldn't be Iceland. They are so far removed from the rest of society, it is meaningless to impose such sanctions. Don't you think life is hard enough already for your people? For starters, Iceland doesn't have an army. What do they think will happen when the 150,000 men living on that island no longer have an outlet for stress relief?
24. Porn is Hilarious
If you really wanted to have a good time, try watching a porn flick with a group of friends. Just make sure to include a few chicks or this won't work. Go watch a porn movie and tell me the acting doesn't make you laugh out loud. It is a comedy with nudity. And semen.
23. Jenna Jameson
You can't make an article about porn and not mention the name Jenna Jameson. She brought porn into the mainstream and is one of the greatest names in porn in history. I think having her speak to the Icelandic government couldn't hurt.
22. Helps Develop Sexual Creativity
Porn isn't just a tool you should use to masturbate, that is how a simple minded politician sees it. Porn is also a great way to teach yourself some incredible sexual ideas, positions, and even foreplay. It doesn't have to be a one person event every time you watch porn. You can include other people. That is actually encouraged. Iceland can face it or not, but sex is everywhere. The better we are at it and the more we understand it, the happier we will be as a society. Banning it won't help win re-election any time soon.
21. Almost the Entire Country Uses the Internet
According to The World Factbook, 97% of Iceland uses the internet. And how many of those people have watched porn? Roughly 100% of them have at one point or another. How do I know? Have you seen porn? It is amazing. The argument to ban pornography is that it will protect children from the violent sexual imagery porn portrays. All I can say is that if you want to access porn, a ban on pornography won't stop you.
20. Porn Leads to Ideas
How many times have you watched a porn and suddenly came up with a great idea? Porn clears your mind of all the crap we live with each and everyday. It allows us time to meditate and leave all our worries behind. It is during that moment after you watch porn that the idea wheel begins to spin.
19. Jesse Jane
I appear to have forgotten the main reason porn is great, the actresses. Jesse Jane is one of the most talented porn stars of the last ten years and she is also one of the key examples I would use if I had to explain to Iceland why they shouldn't ban porn.
18. It is Harmless
Has there ever been a crime problem related to porn? Sure, they have had a few crimes over the past thirty years related to the porn industry but the number of crimes in porn compared to those of any of industry are mostly less. Pornography is here to enjoy, not to harm others. If you want to ban something, ban the Kardashians from speaking.
17. Safe Sex All Around
Besides just being harmless, most pornography practices safe sex. A lot of porn doesn't even try to hide the fact that the male is wearing a condom, they want you to see it. This, once again, proves that porn is great. It is showing us that we can have a fantastic time with a smoking hot babe and still wear a rubber.
16. What's Next? Banning Fashion Models?
If you haven't already Google'd Icelandic women, feel free to pause and go check them out. It will blow your mind how many beautiful blond hair, blue eyed babes hail from the land of ice and snow. Almost all of those women look like models. Banning porn because you want to protect children from the "violent sexual imagery" is the beginning of complete censorship across the country. It won't be long before these models are also banned.
15. Does Iceland Remember Life Before Porn?
I do. It was horrible. I wasn't around but I have read papers and books on the subject. Think about it. Before the 60's, when Porn really took off, women were covered up, men weren't happy, and you were banished by your community if they found out you enjoy watching women have sex on video. It wasn't a pleasant time.
14. Sex is Boring
Sex can be boring and monotonous after awhile. It doesn't matter how much of a pimp you are, after a long period of time with the same person sex can become boring. Porn can assist a couple stuck in a rut. It can empower them to communicate and spice things up in the bedroom. Again, if Iceland wants to have a country full of pissed off men and women, ban porn.
13. Bree Olson
I can't have a team of pornstars to sent over to Iceland and not include Bree Olson. Sorry, I had no choice but to include the cute pornstar.
