I just finished viewing Candida Royalle's film "Eyes of Desire", and it was great! Worth every penny! As far as I can remember, this is the first time I've ever watch a "porn" movie from start to finish in one sitting. It has a very interesting and plausible story line, and the acting was much better than in the typical porn flicks I've seen in the past. And, quite frankly, I found it refreshing to see the women treated as more than just sexual props. Kudos, Ms. Royalle! You've found a new loyal customer, if "Eyes of Desire: Part 2" and "Rites of Passion" are anywhere near as good.

@Sherry H: "Online pornography may create informative advert for some "adults", but they are being widely spread that our children and other uninterested groups may be affected."

Please explain to us how children and other uninterested groups might be affected by online porn. I don't see how anyone could be affected by porn unless they actually are LOOKING at the porn. Certainly, adults can put filters on their PCs at home that will not allow their children to view porn. And uniterested adults can just not look at it. So, how are they "affected"?

"However, what about teenagers and children who out of curiosity look at it and get the wrong sexual education?"

It the parents' responsibility to make sure that their children get the "right" sexual education. Children were getting exposed to the "wrong" sexual education long before the Internet ever existed. It's impossible to shelter your children completely from bad influences (whether sexual or anything else). It's your responsibility to teach them how to recognize those bad influences, and how not to fall prey to them.

"Why would a couple want to publish their love making sessions 'online' to 'spice up their relationship'? Why can't they just record themselves privately?"

Why should they not? Why do some people play tennis, instead of doing something privately for fun and exercise? In either case, what they're doing doesn't hurt anybody else, so it's THEIR choice.
