    Yes, and dont agree. Sometimes studies just can be unbiased unless the people are raised in a bubble and not exposed to anything which isnt possible. There are a lot of studies that just cant be real accurate not just on this subject. Ill go read them again but will prob feel the same way. Like how do we know that people arnt reacting aggressively due to watching driving miss daisy maybe that movie had a negative impact on them. I dont think I am explaining my points well but meh in the end I dont believe the studies relating horror movies to making people violent. Yes maybe they would give an already violent murderer ideas but your average person isnt going to be violent because of a movie but thats just my opinion.

    Default Torture Porn?

    I think it's a lot to do with giving people bad ideas...

    I don't see one single good thing that can possibly come out of such movies existing

    Unsurprisingly, you have completely misunderstood my post. I wasn't talking about the scrip writers, I was talking about the audience.

    I think it is absolutely bull crap. Especially since Saw doesnt even have sexual scenes and not everyone watches them for "sexual gratification" as they put it.

    People can be aroused by the strangest things so where would this stop. I love the movies and would like to see more made but this label seems stupid to me.

    Thoughts?

    Didnt read any replies. Just answering to this.

    I dont think its necessary. If we limit or outlaw any movie that is considered sexually disturbing to SOME then we'd have very few movies left...people get their jollies over all sorts of things.

    Personally I like the Hostel movies (though they make me never want to travel) and the Saw movies. Sexy sexy SEXY Chester Bennington was in the last Saw movie and I admit I was turned on when the shot of him shirtless in the car came on....and I find his singing scream hot and he obviously screamed his a$$ off during his torture scene, which was kind of disturbing so not exactly attractive, but I know its fake anyway......doesnt mean Im some deviant who is secretly into torture porn...just someone who is into Chester Bennington

    Two different things cant be compared I learned that yesterday there is a huge difference between the two and you shouldnt compare people who like these movies with those who like child porn.

    I'm not comparing child pron and torture pron, I'm pointing out that the fact that you say you enjoy something isn't sufficient to justify its existence.

    So like I learned yesterday when I did the same thing one is illegal and one isn't so you cant use it as an example it doesn't work but maybe the rules are different depending who is posting
