I will debate that Porn should not be legal
Debate Round No. 1
TheEnergyHippo

Pro

I would like to thank to my opponent for accepting this debate. I will start by pointing out some arguments. I am going to talk mainly for masturbation because porn helps you masturbate.

1. Some people will never get a partner (People on wheelchairs, different types of mental illness, people with HIV, lonely and shy people, people with cancer, people who just don't want a partner etc.).

Most of those people cant fulfill their sexual needs without masturbation or a prostitute. Masturbating is better than having sex with a prostitute because it is less likely to get a sexual disease.

2. Porn is good for the economy:
-I have read somewhere that the American porn industry gets $10 billion dollars a year.
-Many people will be unemployed. Some people have been wasting their entire lives to learn how to be good porn actors/actresses. No one will hire them if they loose their job.

3. People who are weird and will never get a girlfriend can go and rape someone and after that murder him/her. I think that pornography lowers the amount of rapes.

4. People can talk about their private parts, joke about it and feel less embarrassed about it.

5. It can help people learn some new moves and tricks if they will have a future partner.

6. Masturbation relieves stress and eases menstrual cramps.

Con

1. Most people regardless of whether they have an illness or are just shy eventually do get a partner and plus porn will allow them to come up with the wrong concept as porn is rather `aggressive`.

2. Just because people are unemployed and porn employs them this is a negative concept because it could make their lifestyle unhealthy and they are prone to more diseases.

3. Does porn not extend them and put the wrong concept in their mind, for eg, a male being shown to hide and watch a female and the female noticing and then they start having sex. This would lead to the viewer attempting this behaviour themselves.

4. People could also become more embarrassed and actually start doing harmful things to themselves.

5. ok. I agree but they would generally be more `aggressive and unnatural`.

6. Masturbation also reduces the brain's ability to think and concentrate thus affecting people's life.

Looked like some strong arguments by pro, but quite disrespectful from con by forfeiting.

It is sad how there is not a round left so I can continue to debate. Sometimes I get the feelings that Con fortefied just to give an end argument to get votes.

I know that a lot of people vote bomb on debates, so I'm going to make sure that no one gets the misunderstanding that I in any way vote bombed. Overall, this debate was difficult to judge as neither side had a plentiful amount of evidence. However, because the PRO provided even a small amount of evidence to prove why masturbation is healthy, it ultimately lent more credibility to the arguments that he made. He doesn't necessarily reference the evidence that proves that porn will help the economy, but he made even some attempt to back up his claims. The CON not only forfeited twice, making her lose the conduct point, but she absolutely no backup to her arguments as she provided no evidence, making her arguments lose credibility. So, honestly, all my votes ultimately needed to go to the PRO. Good job everyone.

Reasons for voting decision: Con forfeited, losing conduct. New argument introduced by Con in the last round should be ignored according to standard debate conventions, because Pro has no opportunity to refute them. Debate is supposed to be back-and-forth, and not arguing until the last post of the debate defeats the debate purpose. Pro's arguments stand.
