Is pornography a catalyst of sexual violence?

In this short essay, Is pornography a catalyst of sexual violence?, Steven Chapman gives a concise summary of the reasons why the answer is, "no!" This is one of those topics that seems to come up frequently, my best guess is because pornography is just one of those things that many people don't want in their country, and as such they have to make up reasons why it's bad. It's quite similar to what's been done with drugs, where it's quite difficult to sort outrageous lies from the truth (you can safely bet that much of what you were told in DARE classes as a kid is just plain wrong).

Anyway, check out the essay if you're not familiar with why pornography doesn't encourage sexual assault. It's important to note that this is not the same as saying it decreases sexual assault).
