Digital Brew| Porn, Violent Video Games and Kids

Love & Peace| Leading porn star Ron Jeremy says that violent video games have “a much bigger negative influence on kids” than pornography. Speaking at a Consumer Electronics Show session “Great Porn Debate” in Las Vegas last week, Ms. Jeremy said “Studies have found that violent video games are a much biger negative influence on kids.”

Jim Sterling of faming news blog Destructoid.com called the comments “very disappointing behaviour from a man who should know better.”

Andy Chalk at video gaming site escapistmagazine.com said Mr Jeremy’s remarks cannot be completely ignored.

Note from Anne: In posting the PBS article, do not assume that we believe that porn impacts kids behavior. We haven’t researched that topic, believing generally that porn and kids don’t mix. Period.
