I guess what he's trying to say is make love not war and is setting an example of it.

Now I'm not sure what his message is when he is having an orgy.

Well, they definitely have more influence over people than porn. I can play video games 12hrs a day, even a slow moving porn wouldn't last more than 30 minutes before I'd have to give it a rest for an hour or so.

Just how negative the influence of each happens to be is the subjective part. Just one teen sporting a Ron Jeremy 'do and 'stache is too many in my opinion.

Personally, I think there should be more porn in violent video games. Although, then online play might get a little weird.

There are some video games that are so violent, they probably deserve to be in an "adults" only area, much like porn movies.

I can't recall which movie was so violent in its time it garnered an X rating at the time, but I think it was the "French Connection". By today's standards, it's still pretty violent but would only get an R rating today.

I think he's probably right. Kids sit around for up to dozens of hours at a time playing games... contrast that with peeking at a boob here and there when their parents aren't looking... The big question though is who cares what Ron Jeremy think? He's certainly one of the last people I would have thought about asking for parenting advice if I were looking for it. :D:D

I agree. Violence is much worse than Sex. Sex is mostly harmless and it drives me insane how backwards America is on the issue.
I don't get it either.

What's worse? Depicting consensual sex between adults, or often misogynistic physical violence, glorified murder, rape, and maiming of civilians for the pleasure of the gamer?

Seems like a pretty obvious choice to me.

What games have you been playing where you can rape people?

Of course Ron Jeremy is going to say video games is worse than porn. He is in the porn business. To me, it looks like Ron is trying to fulfill some personal agenda.

No rape in any of them. Sex yes, Rape no. I think he was more referring to violence portrayed in media in general rathen than just video games.

I protect my daughter from viewing violence much more over sex. In fact I could care less if my kids see a naked person. I have no intention of hiding my Playboy mags from my kids. They are welcome to look and ask questions.

I have a statement to make, "Porn is 'worse' than video games."

Discuss.
Agreed.

Porn does not equal sex.

As to Ron Jeremy's claim, ask Ted Bundy his thoughts on the matter.
I've lived in prison for a long time now, and I've met a lot of men who were motivated to commit violence. Without exception, every one of them was deeply involved in pornography - deeply consumed by the addiction.

A couple of points here:

1. Video games tend to be a social occasion more and more these days. Kids chatting and discussing tactics and enjoying a shared experience. Porn is usually a solitary and non-interactive affair.

2. Most older children know video games are fantasy whereas they could see porn as the "correct" way to deal with emotional issues and love-making in general.

None of them are bad.
It's all about differentiating reality from unreality.
Both can be very good if properly used.
