Pornstar: “Games Harm Kids More Than Porn!”

super-mario-pornstar.jpg

Hirsute porn legend Ron Jeremy recently accused games of being more dangerous to children than pornography, speaking at the “Great Porn Debate”, an event held at the Consumer Electronics Show.

“Studies have found that violent video games are a much bigger negative influence on kids,” he said, comparing them to the very industry which made him famous, and apparently failing to cite which studies have found porn to have a negative influence on children.

Some of Jeremy’s most reactionary comments at the CES were from his denouncing of games as being an unfit method of child-rearing and calling upon the bevy of technology the porn industry employs to deter children from viewing the material:

“Because we make porn, we are the bad guys. We don’t want kids to watch porn but yes we recognise that it happens… Parents should watch what their kids are doing online and take some responsibility. Don’t blame us. We have disclaimers, age notifications and software blockers. We are doing our bit.”

Given the search trends of the younger generation, these efforts seem to have been futile.

Jeremy, a former teacher and veteran of over 2,000 adult movies, has also been vocal in criticising the Internet:

“I am a former school teacher, I have a masters degree and two BAs, and I think the Internet is making people stupid,” he said in an interview. “I just hate the Internet in general.”

Jeremy believes schoolchildren don’t have a desire for the old-fashioned ways of studying or research, when all that can be completed with a quick search online: “We could be giving rise to a generation of idiots.”

    I think that the point we want to make here is that neither are dangerous...

    The internet taught me more than ANY parent could, by the way.

    There was a story of a group of male kids who sodomised each other frequently after watching porn. Children as young as 5 are imitating acts seen in porn. Porn is great but not for the underage.

    If they were told the facts about sex, consequences, responsibilities, etc, would they have acted such behaviors out? They didn't know any better. The truth is sex is natural, and everywhere.

    It's no different than a kid seeing people using guns on TV, and then finding a real one. They don't know how to safely use it, and they often kill themselves or someone else. Violence is also everywhere, but rarely censored.

    They can't tell fantasy from reality because they haven't been taught.

    i would have to point out that he also says that he doesnt want underaged kids watching porn....just like how kids under 18 shouldnt play violent games etc.

    sure violent games might have a worse influence (idc either way) but it's not the games fault, people should parent better so his argument is completely invalid

    I love Ron Jeremy!

    Really, I do. Platonicly, of course. But if I violated God's laws to commit the Sin of Sodom, it'd be with him;-) He's both a "Super Man" and an "Every Man" at the same time, and also a loving "Parental" type of the 60s/70s. There really isn't a tradition of respecting "Elders" anymore, and there's a "Publik Corporate Groupthink Media" mess of a pretense of a culture, of which he's an outsider oddball, but he does have a valid point...

    He doesn't cry about Viag-a. One of the reasons he is a superman is he can get it up on command in a room full of people talking and laughing and to coke addict ice queens with tons of needle marks on their arms. Until recently, only a handful of men in the world could do it, and he was da top. Now, the 'bodybuilder pretty boys' can pop a few pills and get a boner for a while. But he doesn't take it, relying on both his existing fame and his superman ability to keep pumpin da ladies!

    He's got a valid point about Porn and the internet.

    I'm not knocking Piracy, it'd be "...Cast the first stone" on that issue.

    I LOVE internet pornography. It sure beats going to smelly theaters on the shit end of town, having religious shitheads photographing your license plate and trying to tail you to do things like walk into your workplace screaming... It beats having criminal gangs trying to rob your car, hoping you'll be too preoccupied or embarrassed to call da fuzz, or that the Fuzz will have a "Moralist" that day who'll lose your paperwork and not try to catch them... It beats a rather tame collection of soft shit that's only slowly replenished because they have a limited budget for stock and the moralists try to get them raided with even the mildest S&M...

    Instead, for a nominal fee or free, I can get tons of porn of any taste. Luckily, I simply happen to like mostly guys and ladies and ladies and ladies and some light (no cutting! Barf!) S&M stuff along with Hentai. There's no direct association in RL with me buying smut, no embarrassment, no pile of magazines, all on my "Porn o tron 3000" aka my computer and all it 'cost' was a few 'subscriptions' and an extra external HDD and a pile of CD Roms and DVD roms:-)

    But there should be a moral imperative to all of us to "Support what we like". This is at the same time the worst and best time for the average joe wanting some entertainment. Right now, the cash flow is running low and the industry is desperate. Until they help fix things (the revolution shall be televised/on the net!) to ensure a population of sheep with more money than they deserve, we can make or break some players by how much we "Vote" for them with our dollars.

    My main theme is the "Music Industry" which needs the most overhaul. I'm for directly supporting artists, from new "Independent" acts you like to sending the entrenched "Old School" money directly (don't admit DLing their muzik, just say "I like---") because the way things are now if you toss $1 or $5 into the case of a guy playing a flute on a street corner, you pay him far more money than if he was a "Pro" and you bought his $20+ CD/DVD.

    Jeremy's right about the net, too. I have to cut it off to get any computer work done, by unplugging/disabling it... I like it, but I have to watch myself or I'll waste forever on it.

    Anyways, Jeremy's hot. You can find tons of pics of him online. My fav is where he fucks Minka, a petite Oriental woman with really huge fake tits. And he's F*cked them all, save Savannah, but her choice and her loss... IMO, if any male porn star deserves a donation, skip a Latte and send him $5, he deserves it! Or, buy/rent online some of his porn so to producers he's still got da stuff!

    We should support the entertainment we do like. Simply put, the more we don't support it, the more goes out of business leaving ONLY the corporate drek. Right now, "Stealing" can have an impact. At the same time "Directed Buying and donations and Fan Promotion" can help what you like not just survive but THRIVE.

    Ron Jeremy has it all wrong. We're not raising a generation of idiots, if anything, they're smarter than ever before. What the internet/games might be actually doing is raising a generation of low-attention-span & lacking-all-self-discipline kids.

    what i love is that he is blaming I'm sure mature games, which kids aren't supposed to have and comparing it with porn, which is also something kids aren't supposed to have.

    He says porn has a warning and kids shouldn't be watching it, but doesn't mention that these games aren't meant to be played either.

    "The Internet is making people stupid."

    No, the government is training children to not think critically, via the schools.

    It doesn't matter whether you're using the old-fashioned card catalog or a search engine to collect your research materials, you still have to evaluate the quality of the author and their material.

    If I were a teacher, I'd notify the class in advance that I'd grade down their research papers if they used Wikipedia as a reference, or used *only* Google to search for materials.

    There's little effective difference between "www.BlackHelicoptersCauseCancer.com" and those little ads in the back of magazines selling copper bracelets as a rheumatism cure.

    Just because Google doesn't find a web page doesn't mean that page doesn't exist. This is true of all search engines.

    Primary schools don't require this basic rigor of thought and process. Critical thinking is not taught as a course there.

    The Internet doesn't *make* people stupid, but it assists them in being so, if that's how they are.

    "Google -> Wikipedia -> The Whole Truth" .... durrrr.

    I think it's important to note what age group that he's talking about here.. is he talking about children 13 and under? 18 and under? 21 and under? I remember when I was 14 and I thought all this age rating crap was bullshit, teenagers and children basically don't get any respect in general from a lot of adults and other teens as well when it comes to things that restrict them in terms of age of that nature.

    Basically when you're not allowing someone to see a movie because they're under the age of 18 you're saying to them "you're too stupid to understand this to distinguish it from reality." Then people wonder why the generation is the way it is today, this over sheltering is what makes people turn into violent sex crazed nuts not the other way around.

    That doesn't mean that showing 12 year old boys porn is a good idea, remember the other article about the one kid who tried to orgasm to get off and ended up getting necrosis? Clearly there needs to be more scientific and logical examination of this subject.

    Fuck "morals" or whatever it is whether it's religious beliefs or whatnot. The more you pressure them to do one thing one way, the more they WILL go towards the other way and people should know this unless they forgot what it's like growing up (and by judging the huge chunk of "society" my guess is they have).

    he's only saying this to make porn look less, well offensive.
    It's easy to perform studies and blame videogames for having a bad effect on children but how can one gather evidence against porn. Simple porn for minors is immoral you cant actually PROVE that it's worse than videogames it's just an obvious fact.
    Not to mention the fact that he is in a way making it sound as if porn is acceptable for minors

    The federal government made a landmark study of the video game violence on kids back in 2004 (I think). Conclusion? Video games don't make kids violent. Matter of fact, many studies show that the ability to act out fantasies via video games provides a therapy of sorts.

    In short, video games are good for you. Ron Jeremy is more full of shit than your local sewer.

    Some things I wanna bring up here. Be prepared, wall of words coming up.

    THIS.

    “I am a former school teacher, I have a masters degree and two BAs, and I think the Internet is making people stupid,” he said in an interview. “I just hate the Internet in general.”

    "and I think the Internet is making people stupid" <-- THIS, in particular, that I have an issue with.

    The Internet is a tool for 'exchanging information in the modern era'. Do you become more stupid if you use a tool? The answer's 'no'.

    You can only make things happen when you use a tool. With a tool like a pen, for example, you can do good things (write a book that benefits others by education) or bad things (write a profane remark on the wall to insult someone). And that is factored by how well-educated you are, NOT how the tool 'makes' you smart or stupid.

    Mr. Jeremy, as a self-proclaimed expert in the field of education (or formerly was), failed to recognize the definition of a tool when he made that statement.

    And unless it somehow becomes 'self-aware' (*gasps* how ???) it is literally impossible for the Internet to have the will to 'make' someone stupid. It's the people who are abusing it to blame that they are spreading misinformation around the web to misguide people, and NOT the Internet.

    Well yeah, a lot has pointed out the hidden agenda of why Mr. Jeremy said something so ludricious as that. Loathing the Internet because he's losing money over his 'productions' getting distributed for free everywhere on the web.

    (And to be fair, the so-called 'violent video games' of his perspective are actually losing more money compared to porn because of Internet piracy, and we don't see the producers of such 'violent video games' coming out to any conventions or such to scream 'PORN DOES MORE HARM THAN VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES', do we? ;) )

    -----

    And after seeing quite a number of 'yeah agreed violence worse than sex' comments here, personally I'd disagree about that.

    [Disclaimer : I do not mean you guys are wrong about it, it's more like while you have your preference in believing so, I have my preference to believe otherwise. Partly that because we might come from different social backgrounds that made the difference in our perspectives, and partly that because we are both right about the facts we put up. So chill.]

    "Studies have found that violent video games are a much bigger negative influence on kids," Mr Jeremy said.

    Well, here's where I'd stamp '[CITATION NEEDED]'. The keyword here is 'bigger' where he mentioned, because that means he implements that violent video games's 'negative influence' is WORSE than 'something', in which I believe that he's referring that 'something' to be porn.

    In short, 'violence in video games is worse than the negative stuff in porn' is the message that I received from him.

    With the 'stating the obvious' part done, let's move on to the 'give it a thought' part.

    In violent video games, for example when you shoot someone, it will show that the person you shoot gets injured from the shot, and if fatal, dies.

    And in subtlety, it passes the hidden message of 'yes, when you shoot someone, they die, and causing someone to die is a bad thing'. At least when we see kids playing that, we can tell them something like 'See? That's why you shouldn't be violent, because killing is bad.'

    But in porn, when you have sex with someone (and most of the time in porn, they certainly don't say anything about it being 'protected sex'), does it show you what is the outcome of having sex?

    It certainly doesn't speak anything of the outcome of 'human reproduction' (e.g the 'hot legal teen' who's actually older than it was stated that she is, gives birth to a baby), nor the aftermath/impact on their lives on both protected/unprotected sex (this I leave for you people who had such experiences of getting laid to figure out). So, what are we going to tell the kids who were caught watching porn? The difficulty arises, mainly consisting of the emotional barrier of embarassment.

    So the comparing is done. Yes I will not deny that violence in video games has more or less a negative impact to kids, but I believe that it definitely cannot be much worse than how porn is faring in that field.

    In fact, both are destructive at their own levels in which they cannot be compared to with each other. Which means that we have to take two individual approaches (that could be similar, but differing in details) when we deal with the negative impacts on video game violence, and with the negative impacts on porn.

    ---

    Phew. All that essay work. Though like many of you, I believe the only thing correct Mr. Jeremy up there said was 'Parents should watch what their kids are doing online and take some responsibility.'

    And I would add 'And also implementing the appropriate form of education to them prior to letting them access to the Internet'. :)
