  • Generally, yes. However, on the news that is reported, no.

    What the deal here is, porn is neither a cause nor preventative tool of sex crimes. It all relies on who that person is and what was around them when they grew up. Back then there were even more rapes, but the news of modern times over-exaggerates on what porn does. It does not stop or allow sex crimes to take place, it is mainly focused on what the person who commits these crimes had been going through.

  • Although the idea for some sort of vicarious living stance may occur through the individual watching porn; safe to say no.

    The broad idea that porn prevents sex crimes is an interesting one. I for one, can see both sides working equally as well. For instance, if someone is to involved watching porn to go out into the world, (assuming that they were watching porn in a non-public area, with no other human interaction), then it is safe to say that they are currently not partaking in a sex crime.

    However, this instance of this discussion will be standing for the "No" side, and I have a few reasons why that is.
    -Looking at a social shut-out, if you will, the subject in question will likely never have had legitimate contact with whatever kind of gender to which they may be attracted. This in turn, will make the years of life increasingly more difficult. Talk of how [blank] did [blank], could potentially leave the shut-out feeling even more isolated, and behind the times of his/her fellow peers. Assuming porn was one of the many avenues to fill whatever void s/he may be feeling, they will likely have accrued a vast idea of all that is possible, though likely not plausible, and quite impossible under normal circumstances of regular social encounters. This, if the outcast is desperate enough, may be just the thing that justifies the actions that lead up to/are the sexual crimes to be committed.
    -Looking at a socialite, you may be well aware of their ability to always be the center of attention, for better or for worse. The news likes to- for lack of a better term- capitalize on the instances of such cases going wrongly. There are the instances in which [male/female] became too [intoxicated/drugged] at a party, and was consequently taken advantage of. Though the news never reports if the aggressor watches porn, let's just assume that they have (if only a bit). Perhaps it was where they got the idea to try a certain something in the first place. Maybe it was indicative of a lack of morals, (though doubtfully the latter, considering humanities deep roots in all things sexual).

    The point, however, remains. The links between porn "preventing" sex crimes would be rather flimsy at best; if anything, porn promotes sex. The primary thing preventing sexual crimes would be the nature of the parties involved in such issues. (Assuming 'nature' is indicative of the average moral consensus of a multicultural group comprised of various faiths and beliefs.)

  • No, I don't think that porn prevents sex crimes

    In fact I believe that porn enables and may even encourage people to engage in acts to commit sexual crimes. I believe that porn has a different effect on every individual that watches it. Some people may get the urge and motivation to go and commit a sexual crime after watching a ton of porn. I don't think it prevents sexual crimes at all.
