Ron Jeremy Says Violent Games Bad, Sex Good!

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 66 comments

Porn star says sex is beautiful and natural (duh) but violent video games are definitely NOT.

During CES earlier this year, porn star legend Ron Jeremy trekked over from the Adult Entertainment Expo to speak at a panel. During his discussion, his comment saying that violent video games were more harmful to children than pornography.

"[Studies have] found that violent video games are much bigger a negative influence on kids," said Jeremy.

Ron Jeremy wrote in a Kotaku post a response to those who thought he was off his rocker.

"Sex is a natural, beautiful thing and a huge part of life. Medical and psychological experts agree that the act of intercourse and the associated hormones released actually improve happiness and well-being, but American culture shies away from celebrating or even mentioning it," Jeremy wrote. "Sex is treated in most of mainstream media like a dirty, evil thing."

He continues, "In contrast, there is nothing natural or beautiful about violence. Unlike sex, the average person will likely not kill anyone in their lifetime, thank God. And yet the American public glorifies violence on television and in video games. In most of the popular video games out there today, your character runs around blowing people's heads off or stabbing people to death as sprays of blood cover the screen. Would you really rather have your kids watching this than watching sex?"

"Two of the most popular industries in America are video games and porn," Jeremy adds. "No one bats an eye at murdering an old woman in a video game, but covering up nipple is every parents group's crusade."

Jeremy does clarify that he's not trying to knock the video game industry, but rather making an effort to stand up for the porn industry.

    The problem here is that we are not talking about sex or intercourse, we are talking about porn. Porn, almost always, objectifies women, promotes sexual violence, and fails to show that which is beautiful about sex, passion. 90%+ of all porn is meant to be dirty and nasty, how is that good for children? Maybe I'm alone here, but watching a woman get slapped and called a whore over and over isn't what I would call a beautiful sight.

    On the other hand, neither is watching someones head get filled with bullets. The difference? Violence doesn't discriminate, it doesn't objectify, nor is it promoted by it's vary nature. The act of watching something violent does not make people WANT to partake in violence, with a few possible crazy exceptions. Porn on the other hand is meant to do just that, to make you want to have sex as it drives your hormones. Is there something wrong with that? Well, it is best for children NOT to want to have sex anymore than their natural hormones will persuade, but I also don't think it is the end of the world. The problem arises when they start to objectify women and look at them as less than human, which I'm sure most of us can remember having childhood friend that did just that. That is wrong and is a horrible by product of some parts of our society and should be guarded against.

    his points aren't bad. The only problem is the whole studies show part of his arguments. If he left that out he would sound much more credible or even better would be to cite multiple studies including ones on porns affect on young children. Porn for life

    The beautiful and natural sex is called Erotic. Most porn is not better then violence. But it depends how you define porn.

    Oh enough with Ron already! We have had 3 articles in the last month regarding his irresponsible and stupid comments. The guy does not know what he is talking about. The first article or even the second was fun enough, but 3 with potential for more in the future is just draaaaaaagging it too much...

    Violence and playing violent games are entirely different things. I see playing violent video games as no more harmful than kids playing cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians.

    Nothing natural about violence? Violence is very natural, well not to the point humans take it, but violence in nature is a big part of who gets to have sex. The most powerful, strongest male, the one who is able to fight and win against other males are the ones who get to mate, it is natural and in nature a part of sex. Guess the Hedgehog has never watched Discovery Channel and males fighting for the right to mate with the females.

    What this guy again? Hey Ron how about shaving your back and walk upright before you start giving advice. Sex is better, but I really don't think your fooling anyone when what you really mean is porn.

    When the apocalypse comes you'll thank us. Want proof:

    Not that I approve it but given the humans' history I think violence is a pretty natural thing too. Sadly.
