Now we all know its a billion dollar business annually, However; There is a lot of speculation that excessive pornography can rot the brain, ruin relationships, can become addictive and etc, to the point that it may ruin someone's life. With that said, why cant the united states government ban pornography?

Because the radical RWs have not been able to completely trash the First Amendment.

Don't worry though - they're working on it.

The government does not need to censor anymore than they have.

The Endowment for the Arts already provides censorship, the government needs to but out of all of it.

I also don't believe porn is a freedom of anything, it is filth and doesn't add anything positive to society. My personal opinion.

Well, I think it is not the place of the government to regulate the sex life of consenting adults.

Sex in general can be addictive and unhealthy for some. Should fornication be "banned" because sex can be addictive & unhealthy for some? That would be just silly, wouldn't it?

While we are talking about sex & law, I would like to say that I also think that prostitution should be legal in America because I think that it is not the place of the government to regulate the [private] sex life of consenting adults.

Would you agree that it is not the place of the government to regulate the private sex life of consenting adults?...

Peace.

PS: This post sounds more like it belongs in the politics section...may I ask, why did you put it in the religion & ethics section?...

Most of the "ban porn" talk these days comes from the progressive fringe side, the radical feminists screaming patriarchy all the time.

Most Moral Majority people realize they lost the fight when the internet came out.

Porn is an outlet for disaffected males. ban it and they would have to find something else to do, and we probably don't want that.

"Porn" is adult entertainment...it is not "only for disaffected males." It is for any male or female who wants to participate in that sex-business.

Is it the place of the government to regulate the private sex life of consenting adults?...

Peace.

If the government bans porn, watch the sales of National Geographic go up

It isn't a "private sex life" if you publish it.
