You hit enter, waiting patiently for some information about the White House to come up so you can begin your report for Social Studies. The next thing that comes up isn’t exactly what you’re looking for. Naked women, horses, whips, and other devices commonly used for sexual acts of dominion and bestiality pop up on your screen. You know your not supposed to see that, but there’s just a little bit of curiosity that makes you look around to see if anyone is watching. You continue on to see what else is behind that screen. This is a commonly found scenario of Internet Pornography.
Pornography is defined in the Encarta Encyclopedia as films, magazines, writing, photographs, or other materials that are sexually explicit and intended to arouse sexual excitement in their audience. Deriving from the Greek words porne (“prostitute”) and graphein “(to write”), the word pornography originally referred to any work of art or literature dealing with sex and sexual themes, or meaning “depictions of the activities of whores.” Pornography is one of the most controversial forms of expression.
