Porn as negative feedback loop in pop. dynamicsHi guys!
I have to confess to you about my last poll about porn.
I just wanted to make sure of evident thing, but all the same
Now I want to explain my question and suggest something to you for discussion.
I am former biologist (former - because modern Russia does not need scientists and most normal Russian scientists work and live in USA or Europe now), so I still have special point of view to anything, including porn.
Area of my interests was a synecology, population genetics and dynamics. I worked with wide range of biocenosis, mostly saprophages, but anyway, biological laws are common for all species, aren't they? For human beings too. I had a honor to work with nice scientists... well, I don't want to be boring, so here is my opinion: porn is a negative feedback loop in population dynamics of Homo sapiens. Maybe you know what is a "Malthusian trap", when reproduction of population grows faster, than reproduction of resources. Last year we all could see it in Arabia: the s
No Title Journal EntryHi guys,

Huge amount of porn and easy access to it has altered a mankind slightly (advanced part of it, where traditions and religions are dissociated, being replaced by new toys) . As former biologist I see a noticeable decreasing of birth rate in countries of mature economies (and good internet access). Porn acts in complex with "child free" movement, LGBT and feminism. It's nice way to control Malthusian growth of population, better, than wars and plague.
If you are older than 45 years, you have to remember the main fear of those years: the fear of over-population. Exhaustibility of resources, threat of hunger, irretrievable damage of environment (btw, green movement was born in these days, 60's - 80's). What
