Sexuality And Sexuality

The Internet may have a positive effect on the American society in ways that it helps people access many different kinds of information, but a different kind of information can be regarded as useful or even destructive to our society: sexual content. In this paper, I want to discuss how the online world of sexually explicit content has affected society. I want to search into whether or not sex on the Internet has increased sexuality in society and whether or not is has made more people encouraged more to lose sight of the importance and emotionality of sex.

The government should take the extra step and section off sexual content websites that are not suitable for all ages into an Internet portal that is accessible only to people that can provide proof of identification, such as an identification card that is issued by the state. If people have to have form of identification to purchase or rent pornographic material in stores, why shouldn’t they have to do so when viewing content on the Internet?
