"Oh sure, behind closed doors Republicans are main buyers/users of adult industry and its many business models, but in public each stands behind the family values crap and speaks from a pulpit. It is hard-core hypocrisy..."

Hog wash. Morality is way down the list of things Repubs worry about. This country will not survive FDR's Statism. That is what most Repubs worry about. The US can live with or without porn. The First Amendment is important, but not porn itself. If you are willing to vote for a known enemy of our Constitution just to “save the adult industry,” yes, you are placing porn above all else.

"You are tossing all Democrats in the same basket whereas I am referring to actual campaign statements referred to in the article linked in my post."

The fact is Democrats have been buying votes from leeches since FDR. They have turned all national elections into advance auctions on future stolen goods. "Vote for me and I will rob your neighbor so you can have OPM (other people's money). The recent insanity over FORCING churches to pay for things that go against their beliefs (damn the First Amendment) is a case in point. The Left are now couching their argument as if not paying for something is equal to banning it. If that is true, every American should get at least one free gun at taxpayers' expense because of the Second Amendment. Under the First Amendment, we should all get free porn too, I guess. No, your post made it clear you put porn above all else, including the country. But, hey, that’s your right.

I agree with you, except for one thing 'But hay, that's your right' Nobody has the right to subject my family to their garbage and that include the schools that are teaching SEX to third grader's.
Porn should be in a separate category, and that include's gutter talk. It seem that's where this generation has gone. The gutter where most people just Hocks one up and spits.

I have written a book called Jenna' s Star, which is a bedtime story for children.

my sister in law wanted to download but as she searched on the book title she got loads of books about jenna Jameson the porn star. She did laugh but it doesn't give a great impression when you are trying to be taken seriously as a writer in your family !

I don't want to be associated to any porn writing. I know what porn is and I also know the specious arguments about freedom of expression that those who champion it use. Whatever way you dress is, porn is low trash than degrades anyone involved in it.

When I come up with a title, I check it first on Amazon to see what comes up, something close to it or perhaps already published. Then there is no surprise when I have a new book uploaded. Don't be in a big hurry next time. You'll have a more harmonious outcome that way.

"Specious arguments about freedom?" You won't have any of those if you move to North Korea. Just so you know.

Totally off topic, but, sargeking, have you ever seen Crossfire Trail, a Louis L'amour western movie?

Not only have I heard of it, I have it on DVD. Tom Selleck, Virginia Madsen, Wilford Brimley, Brad Johnson, and Mark Harmon. BTW, Harmon also played a really creepy Ted Bundy. I don't mind going off topic, especially when the retention pond is drying up, so to speak.

IMO the more 'holier than thou' a person claims to be, the more likely they are to have some form of erotica or porn in their home. There is nothing wrong with sex. There is nothing wrong with sex in books. I guess I will be one of the few who stands up proudly to say I write erotica and I publish it here on Amazon, and I'm sorry if offends some of your highly-refined moral sensibilities, but I'll offer no apologies for how I make my living or feed my family.

Not only do I write erotica, but I write d**n good erotica. I take great pride in making sure my work is polished and edited. My stories have sex in them. They also have plots. They degrade no one, least of all the person reading them. Almost all of my reviews are 5-stars and not one has ever been solicited or falsified. Some of my best selling stories were sold as paperbacks fifteen years ago and are still selling strong today. People have bought and sold copies of my paperbacks for more than $100. Not only is my erotica NOT trash, it DOES endure and is even considered collectible in some circles.

It's not porn or erotica that denigrates Amazon or Kindle content. It's poorly-written literature by authors who care more about $$ than they do about refining their work before self-publishing. And if you have a problem with erotica, then don't buy it. That's your right. It's NOT your right to tell me what I can and can't write, or tell me where I can and can't publish! If you don't want your child reading my work, then don't give them your credit card so they can buy it! Monitor what happens on your computer. That's your job as a parent. Not mine!

Uh, you seem to be laboring under a misunderstanding. I never posted anything against porn. I just posted the US can survive with it or without it, but the First Amendment is what is important. Another poster threatened to vote for Obama to "save the adult industry;" and I posted it is not worth voting for a known enemy of our Constitution just to save porn. I never posted to ban anything. I posted on the side of liberty, including the freedom to keep the money you earn and not have it taken at the point of a federal agent's gun so Democrats can buy votes from those who do not want to work. Where is any of that in support of banning porn? Others called porn trash. I agree, but did not post that, they did.

I don't know what's more crazy in this thread, authors advocating the censorship of books they don't like, or someone wanting Ron Paul to be president.

:-p

I'm not in with the Burn The Books rabble. Freedom of speech and all that is a right men have died for. Obscenity is in the eye of the beholder. Maybe some of you have some deeper problems to ponder than some erotica books.

As long as they don't depict kids it's fine with me what people want to read.

You are so right. You can't ask a liberal not to spend other people's money and you can't mention the three letter word s-e-x to a prude. There's an old joke and some standard philosophy.

"A liberal spends money like drunken sailors. Except that's only half the story. Drunken sailors spend their own money."

The prude is standing in the super market checkout line and remarks, just look at all these wanton women on the covers of these tabloids. Have they no shame? Then the prude buys a bag of pork rinds and assassinates his internal organs.

The blind prude will choose the poison of temptation on moist lips, rather than look at beauty they will never possess. That accounts for two "blind" groups. Both are totally uptight and neither has any sense of humor.

PORN is porn and should have its own place on the Amazon shelf, that way people who buy it can find it easyer.
However you come off as if its your right to do as you damn well please reguardless of who it hurt's. Just keep you stuff away from the kid's is all that is asked.

Only the God's are perfect, sometimes wonder about that.
