Just thought I would share this...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8453043.stm

So - apparently Mr Ron Jeremy (star of some 2000 Porn Movies) claims that video games screw up your children more than porn does...

discuss...

Maybe Ron was confused about the violent use of your joy stick. Ron really doesn't have room to judge...unless this was an angle to promote pr0n perhaps.

He's not exactly an unbiased source, but an argument could be made that sex acts, even if a tad extreme, would fuck you up less than being used to seeing people's heads explode when you hit them in juuuust the right spot. However, killing electronic Nazis is probably a better thing to be used to than butt-fucking someone with no lubrication or unprotected sex with a stranger.

He IS kinda biased, huh?

Now don't get me wrong, I respect that he is good at what he does, and is an institution in the porn industry - but this wreaks of publicity stunt / climbing on the "video games are bad" band wagon...

I cant see how blowing someones head off in MW2 can be more traumatic / damaging for a child than watching some bimbo getting hammered by RJ (lets face it, he aint a looker these days)... Especially if the child hasnt had the "birds and the bees" chat with mummy and daddy yet...

MW2 isnt real - the figures you see on screen, no matter how well modeled and rendered, are not real - the event of killing that person you just shot didnt happen. ITS PRETEND!

If your kid watches some porn (even by mistake, whatever) its REAL - you can see the people are real and that the act happening on the screen really happened.

that for me is the big difference...

Summed up what I was going to say.

[COLOR=Black] Wouldn't that mean that it is ok to show your kids hentai (or whatever you call cartoon porn)?

From that guy's perspective it may really seem that pron is not as bad as videogames. He is probably used to porn and doesn't react the same way to it we would. We, on the other hand, are used to violent videogames and don't consider it to be a big deal (ok, the assumption that videogamers don't watch porn may not be perfect, but you get the idea).

As for the effect on children - I'll just go out on a limb here and say that both neither porn nor videogames are great tools for educating children.[/COLOR]

Hmmm - I see what you mean, we are desensitized to head shots as he is to cum shots... Fair point.

Agreed. That is, after all why violent games and pr0n have age certification. Neither is a particularly useful tool when it comes to raising kids...

It just irritates me that this guy - who lets face it, isn't exactly clean cut and ready to babysit your kids this evening - is making general comments about the gaming industry with nothing to back it up... Plus it sound rich coming from a guy that made his money by sticking his cock up people...

Clearly you've never had that experience.
