With that being said, pornography could be moral if it brought out happiness after viewing pornographic material. Pornography is something that has been around for many years, there have been many debates on whether or not pornography is moral or immoral. From Utilitarianism view on pornography it is said to be morally correct as long as it brought happiness and pleasure for people for the greater good.

We would try to compete to see who would go to sleep first and it was always me. They put ketchup in my hair, toothpaste all over me and I swore that I would get them back for that if it was the last thing that I do. | "Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being." Chapter 9 | No mater where I go or how many years go bye I will never forget when me and my boyfriend met.
Fantasies for men are more from memory and based on past or present sexual encounters. (The Journal of Psychology124 (4) pg 427) More specifically women fantasizes have been shown to contain themes of passivity, narcissism and sadomasochism. (Wilson & Lang, 1981; Porto & Couture, 1977; Wilson & Lang, 1981). Men fantasizes are characterized as more active, aggressive and impersonal. Men have fantasizes to have sex with numerous persons, which is not preferred by most women in their fantasies.
Today, some of top played songs contain lyrics that are about sex. The media basically disguises the words with “slang” and these songs are promoted and become so popular among the youth. Also, there are multiple magazines available to the public, with big flashy titles discussing sex tips and secrets, and scandals within the celebrities. You can find these magazines and advertisements almost anywhere. They are placed just a couple of shelves away from the popular teenage magazines, making it easy for the youth to access and read.
Joshua Jones PHL 340 Professor Osman May 9, 2013 “Wonder, eroticism, and Enigma” In his essay Paul Ricoeur starts out discussing eroticism and its ambiguous meanings. He states that “one of the components of human sexuality, its instinctual and sensual component.” (pp. 207) Meaning that it is built into us from the start. He also says that it can “designate the art of loving built upon the cultivation of sexual pleasure.” He says it’s not a problem as long as mutual gratification wins over egoism and narcissism. Once individuals care only about themselves, then eroticism become a restless desire for pleasure.

All these popular culture in the 1960’s had provided negative and positive things to the society. Negative areas of popular culture were mainly problems with bad influence to the younger generation and how they would admire those great successors and treat them as guide lines for life. Some evidence to prove this point was that the criminal rates increased by 124% in the 1960’s. Just from these figures, we could see that there must be a source for this result, as many people say; it could be caused by the popular culture and the bad influence from it.

I attempt to follow a value rule that is based on “utilitarianism” (Rathus, et al., 2005, p. 6), in which my values reflect concern for the greater good of society’s majority, rather than my own. As with my value system, my critical thinking skills in making decisions about sex have long been set. I remain skeptical of the beliefs and biases of others, preferring to come to my own conclusions concerning sex and what I find sexually stimulating. However, I fervently condemn many behaviors as immoral, such as rape, unethical as in the case of adultery, or against nature as with practicing bestiality. Other sexual behaviors, whether I agree with them, or not, such as sodomy, sexual preference, and any other sexual choices that does not harm another, are not mine to judge.
The result of these studies is the discovery that sexuality in advertising can be, and has been, high on the list of effective forms of rhetoric.
