Excellent points from both of you , my hats off to you both.
Well for one thing you just stated in your view it is not normal? I doubt it is as well. Your common sense is telling you that. An alternate arguement would be if then these people do have some issue or issues, does allowing them to continue to do what we agree is not normal, continue? Are we enabling someone who does not know better or needs assistance to fall through the cracks so to speak.
Ah of course going to a bar to find a hook up is kind of similar...But then is that a form of entertainment we are paying for or are we attempting to find something or someone real? We both would agree that it is more likely to be more constructive and real than on a website where it for the most part is a fantasy.
It will never be outlawed or disappear, just like prostitution, piracy and sex trafficking. Well it appears from where this cam business started to where it is now, I would have to say regulation would be more useful and helpful to all involved. I am sure that would not go over well with many but after gonzo porn and all types of fetishes have evolved what is next in your opinion? How far do we want to allow things to go?
Live shows with no interaction would be like masturbating to a magazine or video. What makes this so popular is the real human interaction. Alas, at a strip club a stripper would not use toys or masturbate for her customers, there is a noticeable difference there.I think that falls under morality and a cities,state or countries laws. But then they can go home with a customer if they wish as well. The emotional aspect of it is what makes this so dangerous and so powerful for many.
I have seen people that can't remove themselves from the chat and admit that they know better, but the pull back to it is enormous. Would one conclude that that person or persons are addicted or have some form of compulsive abnormal behavior?
Do we turn the other way and not recognize all aspects and issues involved on both sides? That would not be fair or proper. Just as we discuss things from a models perspective it is only fair to talk about the other parties involved as well. It takes two to tango.
Well I agree with you Teal, as I just stated, above in my last paragraph. Not only could it effect a user or visitor but also how many women has it seriously affected as well? Have you read what Uncle Lewis wrote about the first woman he came across on MFC? There in itself is evidence that something went wrong or hurt someone in a negative way.
Everything in life is prone to abuse and improper use. Most people are responsible and have the knowledge and maturity to know when or when not to cross a boundary. But I see the boundaries disappearing lately more and more.
Do we or can we stop another person from doing whatever they wish? I say yes, as a collective group it is within our power to effect change for the better not for the worse. If we did not regulate or have some set of standards we all would be in a heap of trouble. Example as to the recent great recession.
Should we allow people who have no other choice but THIS industry to not to have other choices? Nope. But for many that is the economic choice available for so many. It is time for people to understand that apathy is a poor excuse to say this is their only recourse.
If not for the alternatives ,as hard as they could be,as poor as they are or were or seem, I could certainly say I probably would not exist or be alive today. And to those people who came before me, and worked, and worked hard so I can live more freely, to them I am indebted to. And those are my Parents, whom had it 10x worse than any of these women. (Sorry that was personal but justified in my eyes).For those that are provided with other opportunities, I am sure would make a big difference to more people and to those to come.
Ah Miss Jane, entertainment, we need to ask what is entertainment and what is not entertainment. At this point I can only speak for myself and say this is entertainment I do not enjoy anymore. Why do I say that, simply because I have seen others get hurt from this form of entertainment more than most other forms.
