God only knows what the long-term effects of regularly viewing online pornography will be on our children and teenagers, because this generation is the first to be exposed to it.
But most of us have a pretty good idea: a distorted view of sex and human relations is probably the least of it.
Surely what all the providers should be doing is requiring anyone wanting access to online porn actively to opt in to these deeply degrading services.
Plainly, there’s no substitute for parents keeping a vigilant eye on their children, especially their internet use.
But if the industry won’t regulate itself to deal with this deeply corrosive social menace, it must be forced to do so.Daily Mail, 14th of May:
An 'absolutely stunning' photograph of Madonna posing naked on a bed while smoking a cigarette has sold for nearly £15,000.
The sum is three times the estimate placed on the image that was taken in 1990 during the period when the singer had bleach-blonde hair and dark eye make-up.
It is a black and white photo and Madonna has her breasts exposed and just a white sheet covering her pudenda while she lies on a bed.
