Online Sensuality Reduces Rape

Online Porn Reduces Rape
According to the study lead by economist Todd Kendall, Clemson University, the online sensual shows have succeeded in reducing rape cases.

"The arrival of the internet was associated with a reduction in rape incidence." said Todd Kendal. As reported by Bob Dyer in a recent column Ohio.com, the rape rates have dropped to 30 percent in the last 15 years. He reports that "never has pornography been more readily available." 

Dyer relates the decrease in rape to at least in part to the increased prevalence of porn. When he discussed the fact with Karen Cimini, a psychologist at Akron Family Institute who specializes in sexual issues, she believed that rape had more to do with control and power.

According to Karen, online pornography has little to do with decreased rape rate. AGENCIES
