In what way would they not be willing?

Sex trafficking? Coercion? No other place to go?

Part of me instinctively feels there is something immoral about it but then I try and think about it objectively... is there?

If all girls are willing participants, then sure.

But I highly doubt it.

I suppose if you say 'willing' then no. But willing why? Because they have families to support (parents/siblings) and it's the 'best' way to get by?

I don't think they want to suck your cock by choice, Mark but it will be the only way they can get by reasonably well - you seem to find that naughty and attractive?

Hmmmz.

No, I do not find that attractive. But if what you are saying is true then that is simply someone doing something for the money and they have a choice to go into another business if they want.

You live in a country where women are perceived to be equal to men. Not true for many other countries.

Yeah, I suppose if their other 'choices' are non-existent due to inequality in the work place, then it's pretty ****. But taking away their customers won't achieve anything so still not sure if it makes it immoral. What would be immoral is their society in general.

Haven't you seen this Louis Theroux episode, Mark? It's brill.  Thai brides - same concept.

Indeed. Smile

If you found that interesting then the Swingers episode is similarly informative. 

Wouldn't recommend the Porn one, it totally ruined my perception of it... Frown doom and gloom and yet more doom for even the guys.

I think the good points of the internet definitely outweigh the bad.  I like it because it's an absolute goldmine of good, useful information, even although there's a lot of very nasty stuff out there as well, and I don't regard "More easily accessible to porn" as being one of its good features.  OK for adults perhaps but definitely not so for children.  Parental control can be used in the home but  children can get access to it on other people's computers and I think children should be banned from internet cafes unless they're accompanied by an adult.  The same thing applies to chatrooms.

Discussion forums like MW are great, and it really is amazing to be able to communicate so easily with people all over the world, but I've stumbled upon a few distinctly 'iffy' forums as well.

It's also great for shopping, although I've only ever bought three items on it - a TV, vacuum cleaner and a typist's chair - but it saved me the hassle of having to hunt round various stores to find exactly what I wanted at a price I could afford.

Already seen it and agree, it was depressing.

Doesn't bother me though as I don't tend to watch professional porn.

I had friends working out in Thailand at one point and they said that for a lot of these girls the pressure to go into that 'line of work' came from their families i.e. fathers or brothers, and they were the ones that quite often handles the money Frown
