Regretfully, the answer is no. Outlawing it will no more stop it than the war on drugs has stopped drugs or than the ban on child pornography has stopped child pornography. It has simply driven it underground and made it more profitable. Such practices can only be stopped by eleminating the demand. That means healing the mental damage or disease that causes people to need to see others suffer in order to feel good themselves.

The bottom line here is there is a law against these videos. People will be convicted, and hopefully jail time will be served. Will this stop these videos being made? Are women still prostitutes, do people still murder, do people rape children, do people buy illegal drugs. Sharon Karson, of course you're right, but what would happen if a percentage of these people were prosecuted? Would you rather there be no law?
Sorry, I don't agree with you're mental damage statement. These are people who do this for sick reasons, and lead otherwise perfectly normal lives. Scary world, huh?
