Hard porn decreases sexual violence rates

Hard porn decreases sexual crime rates… Sounds funny but recent research, conducted by Antony D’Amato, a lawyer and a professor of law from the Northwestern Law School in Chicago , USA , has revealed facts that defy common sense and logic, and fly in the face of these assumptions.

Hard porn decreases sexual violence ratesIt has been widely believed and universally accepted, that increasing the sexual content in films, and

showing hot and passionate scenes between man and woman, which are erotic or vulgar, often leads to poisoning and corruption of the young minds in the audiences, leading to more sexual crimes.

But recent research, conducted by Antony D’Amato, a lawyer and a professor of law from the Northwestern Law School in Chicago , USA , and titled ‘Porn Up, Rape down’, has revealed facts that defy common sense and logic, and fly in the face of these assumptions. D’Amato’s research reveals that the incidence of rape in the United States has declined 85% in the past 25 years while access to pornography has become freely available to teenagers and adults. His research revealed that in the US, there were 2.7 rapes for every 1,000 people in 1980; by 2004, the same survey found the rate had decreased to 0.4 per 1000 people, a decline of 85%.

His theory is that the sharp rise in access to pornography accounts for the decline in rape. The correlation, according to him, is inverse—more the access to pornography, less the incidence of sexual crimes against women.
