I have some questions for all of you.  What is pornography?  Why do so many people use the term when they are discussing sexually explicit books, movies, photos, etc., with the intention of making it sound dirty or disgusting?  Personally I prefer the term "sexually explicit".

Wait a minute.  Maybe I should have titled this explicit sex instead of pornography.  The point I was trying to make, and did a very lame job of it, we can discuss religious fiction/non-fiction, spiritual fiction, Christian devotional reading, love romance and paranormal novels, etc., shouldn’t we be able to discuss sexually explicit novels?  Yes, we must watch how we discuss them but still, in my opinion, this genre is as legitimate as the others I’ve mentioned.

btw if I see a topic that isn’t my cup of tea, I don’t read it.

Sorry, but I have not mentioned xxx rated sites and would never do so. On many occasions there have been discussions about things that were not specifically about a particular book or Kindle.

The question is "Can we talk about books that are sexually explicit if we want to?" I do know that one answer will be that if they have a legitimate plot and aren't just about sex then we can.

If the answer is no then I feel that it would be censorship. In which case I could, but would not, ask you to remove:
All references to religious non-fiction because it might offend people who worship a different God or are Atheists.
All romance novels because they might offend some ones religious beliefs
etc.
etc.

btw. I have know idea what books that might be discussed.

Jim, I think I may have joined the ranks of the rebel rousers ::)

Betsy,

Thank you.  You did a much better job of clarifying why I started this thread than I did.

Good grief.  Eighteen years in technical writing and I've forgotten how to put my thoughts into words.
