INTERNET pornography is a problem. And it is a problem for adults as well as children. We are not talking here about safe, happy sex.

Liberals once fretted about the church distorting children's view of sex. But what shapes young people's ideas today, if not the internet. Do liberals no longer care?

Should a sane society not control sex movies in which the participants are drunk or drugged or underage, or all three? In which people are participating because they have been assaulted or because they are driven by dire poverty? In which people are hurt or forcibly restrained during sex? In which people publicise unprotected sex?
