I’ve been following Wiles, Drolinger, et al with (darkly) amused interest. I think you’ve covered it well.

As a brief aside, I once posted a story about masturbation and erectile dysfunction. I started out with the assumption that too much porn was firmly causally linked to ED.

By the time I finished, I had gained an understanding that solid evidence is not only lacking, but that some evidence indicates to the contrary.

I wrote to that effect.

But, oh the responses!

People were just … righteously furious with me. Like I’d roasted a sacred cow and offered them a sandwich.

Not just Christians, btw. So much association exists in our culture with sex and unhealthfulness.

The supposed toxicity of sex permeates the fabric of our existence.
