In the "Views on Pornography" section, you could include a sub heading 'Wikipedia and Pornography' and write that Wikipedia's "No censorship" policy allows users to post pornographic images. You could link to Wikipedia:Pornography.

I would point out somehow that this is a fault with Wikipedia, think of the children. Its not fair to the whole community of wikipedia. And , people hide behind policy and use it to justify their wrongdoings and avoid using self responsibility and just because wikipedia say its acceptable doesnt mean it is appropriate outside of wikipedia in the real world. also, Just cause you can jump off a cliff doesnt mean that theres nothing wrong with it. These perverts have been allowed to corrupt wiki — Preceding unsigned comment added by 101.174.47.195 (talk) 04:25, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

To do as you suggest would contravene Wikipedia policy. We base content on published reliable sources, and not on the opinions of contributors. AndyTheGrump (talk) 04:30, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

"However, the concept of pornography as understood today did not exist until the Victorian era."[edit]

"However, the concept of pornography as understood today did not exist until the Victorian era."

This unsourced sentence is dubious and should probably be removed. The Pompeii artwork by itself probably provides enough of a refutation to disprove the sentence, and I am sure there are many other examples throughout the ages. 50.49.134.141 (talk) 07:09, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

But isn't the sentence about the "concept" of pornography and not pornography itself which does exist - of course - for a very long time? --2A02:810B:8200:764:8902:20B9:3370:6313 (talk) 13:07, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

The sentence " Currently, there is no evidence that visual images and films are addictive." in the 'Study and analysis' section is quite untrue. Incredibly untrue, to be honest. Proven medical research, has shown that such visual images release chemicals in the brain known as dopamine, oxycotin, serotonin and epinephrine which are the exact chemicals released during any compulsive, addictive behaviour/act such as drugs. The brain once again craves for the release and since viewing of explicit content has been practized before, the person once again looks at the images/films. Such research isn't new, it has been blatantly undergoing for a few years now, and a few brief references would be - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBtgA0ZLWo0 , http://www.webmd.com/men/features/is-pornography-addictive , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9lzRWxgmyQ , http://fightthenewdrug.org/get-the-facts/ and http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/02/porn-less-gray-matter-brain_n_5418607.html

I duly request you to change this particular sentence as soon as possible, and indulge in further clarification of the subject. Or else, the viewers(me being one) will be terribly misled and deceived. And for anyone unaware, he/she might end up causing damage to his/her own life!

For further sources, please do research thoroughly, I am sure you will find many. AsifMahbub (talk) 07:32, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
