Porn Up, Rape Down

Abstract:
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. The Nixon and Reagan Commissions tried to show that exposure to pornographic materials produced social violence. The reverse may be true: that pornography has reduced social violence. –ANTHONY D’AMATO

The link – Porn Up, Rape Down

This reminds me of one book I read, Freakonomics. The book says the crime rate has declined not because of increased policing or better economy but the decision by the Supreme Court to allow pro-choice in abortions.

I don’t find it surprising at all. I remember one guy told me a story that in some european countries, he saw 12 years old kids reading porn magazines while rapes there are almost non-existent. Makes sense to me.
