This article discusses regulation of pornography. It notes that pornography causes certain harms to women, men, and children, but it nevertheless concludes that the current amount of regulation is about right. More regulation would likely result in some important information being withheld from the public. This could have the unintended effect of harming women, who would have less access to needed information about, for example, certain women's health issues. Instead of passing more laws, we should encourage individuals concerned about pornography to effect change by publicizing their opinions.
