"Unlike [AIDS Healthcare Foundation], we choose to get our information from medical professionals rather than from the gossip or conjecture of bloggers,” said Diane Duke, FSC’s chief executive officer. “Unfortunately AHF has gone on another witch hunt trying to cause a media frenzy by suggesting an ‘outbreak’ when the performer in question has tested negative. Patient privacy and respect are of utmost importance to us and we encourage responsible reporting rather than the spread of misinformation by rumor mill opportunists who may take this situation as prospect for media attention.”

Jesus Fucking Christ! How long is the legal, sane, incredibly peaceful adult entertainment industry going to suffer from horseshit like this? If anybody were going to be addicted to porn, it would be us, right? We work in it or with it every day, and as reviewers here at AVN, we see dozens of adult movies every month, and guess what? None of us are addicted—whatever that word actually means to those who attempt to apply it to thoughts rather than drugs!
Beyond that, all of the legitimate studies that have been done on the effects on adults of watching sexual material show that while some viewers of violent porn tend to think rapists deserve lighter sentences than those who don’t watch it, watching porn largely has no lasting effect on anyone, not even “hypersexualized" viewers. Moreover, the American Psychiatric Association recently refused to list “sex addiction,” much less “porn addiction,” as a diagnosis in its DSM-5 manual, although it did list “hypersexual disorder,” though Castro shows none of its symptoms.
According to the Independent, “[British Prime Minister] Cameron said he did not ‘believe’ written pornography, such as erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, would be blocked under the plans. But he added: ‘It will depend on how the filters work.’
“He also admitted it could lead to some interesting conversations in families,” the article continued. “Asked if the ‘opt in’ system meant a husband would have to ‘fess up’ to his partner if he wanted to look at porn, he finally said: ‘Yes, it does.’”
Now that’s a nanny state.
