Sociology Dec. 3 rd , 2007 Dr. West Pornography Pornography is frowned upon in our American society, but yet it’s accepted. With shows on cable television such as “A Shot with Tila Tequila” and “I Love New York” we are allowing our children to fall into this trap also. These shows portray a fake image of men and women and the way they interact. By watching these kinds of shows we are almost making a joke out of love and sex. The next point brought up in how the American system is attempting to control the problem of pornography. Here is a list of information for people who still believe that pornography isn’t a social problem. Nearly 900 theaters show X-rated films and more than 15,000 "adult" bookstores and video stores offer pornographic material, outnumbering McDonald's restaurants in the U.S. by a margin of at least three to one. Each year, nearly 100 full-length pornographic films provide estimated annual box office sales of $50 million. Approximately 70% of the pornographic magazines sold eventually end up in the hands of minors. About 1.2 million children are annually exploited through child pornography and prostitution. These numbers alone show how common pornography is in American society. Comcast, DirecTV, EchoStar, three major television distributors, concealed a large amount of the revenue they made from erotic shows. Why are they so ashamed to publicly show the money they made from these disgusting shows that they made available? Stanley vs. Georgia
